Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 2-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, April 8, 1974 Rhodesia, South Africa pursue settlers PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) South Africa and Rhodesia are hoping to attract more with skills and, preferably, a little capital. Of the two countries, both ruled by white minority governments, Rhodesia's campaign is the more aggressive. "When one thinks that in many 'countries of the Western world the scene is one of widespread unemployment, spiralling inflation, strikes and a cold, wet winter, by comparison Rhodesia must BEE HIVE In Centre Village Mall Phone 327-0724 'Your Crafts Headquarters' Make your NOVELTIES for EASTER We have a good selection of EASTER GIFTS for CHILDREN See the latest In CHENILLE FLOWERS We have SEA MONKEYS EASTER SPECIAL!

F. de Wet, acting secretary for immigration, and its offices abroad have been instructed to be on the lookout for promising immigrants. Both countries have pre- viously expressed concern about the soaring birth rates among their black populations. South Africa has almost four million whites and about 18 million non-whites. Rhodesia has more than five million blacks and some whites. While South African agents are merely on the alert, Rhodesia has mounted a formal campaign called Settlers '74 to attract immigrants. White Rhodesians have been urged to submit a mil- lion names and addresses of old schoolmates, army buddies, business contacts, pen pals, casual acquaintances and the like in Britain and elsewhere. The government hopes Settlers 74 will produce about new Rhodesians. Official statistics show that immigration decreased last year.

Rhodesia declared itself independent of Britain in 1965. Immigration decreased sharply then but later increased steadily. "Not only does Rhodesia offer tremendous opportunities to people with special skills and qualifications, people with initiative and a spirit of adventure but... a healthy flow of immigrants is the most effective, answer to the unemployment problem among our African Smith added. Some blacks dispute Smith's last point. They contend that the inflow of whites would be unnecessary if money was made available to train and promote Africans into skilled jobs. Inquiries about official assistance to settle in South Africa usually increase during the Northern Hemisphere win- ter. "We've always had cold weather going for us. Now there are all these other things related to the energy said one official. He toted up what he felt were the plus and minus points on immigration: Rhodesia and South Africa have plenty of sun, and snow is virtually unheard of except in the mountains. The average number of hours of sun- shine per day ranges from 7.5 to 9.5 compared with 3.8 in London and 6.9 in New York. Rhodesia and South Africa have plenty of openings for skilled white workers. Scroll helps friendship grow If people meet regularly over a few weeks to work, study, play, or travel together, they sometimes grow to be friends suggests Marguerite Moser of Coaldale. "But all too often they loose touch when they don't meet any longer, Mrs. Moser says. "A nice way of preserving these new friendships is to make a scroll on which each person grafts his or her name, address and telephone number. "I first saw this idea put into practice at a Bible school summer-camp. One of the girls cut a square cardboard to fit a picture frame, and asked everyone to autograph it. Later she framed it." Mrs. Moser has since modified and expanded the idea into the scroll. She uses a piece of velvet cloth, hemmed with the zig-zag stitch on her sewing machine, and bordered with a gold fringe, or braid, a triangle left at the top to hang it by. Mrs. Moser then obtains several tubes of fabric paint, each in a different color, and invites friends to take the scroll home over- night to inscribe their mark. "Some people paint a picture with their names, addresses and telephone numbers forget me nots, pansies, musical notes, dollar bill-, or whatever fancy Mrs. Moser says. Hung up in the den, a friendship scroll is decorative and artistic. Besides, it is a reminder of friends and happy times. Spring out with RILEY ft McCORMICK Jeans! Jeans! Jeans!
