The World

Vice President George Bush began an African trip to see firsthand the effects of drought and famine. Bush, who is going to Sudan, Niger and Mali, will steer clear of Ethiopia, the most-publicized famine country, because of U.S. differences with the Marxist government in Addis Ababa. During five days on the African continent, Bush will tour refugee camps and be briefed by relief officials. His party includes television evangelist Pat Robertson and two representatives of relief organizations.
