CORNELL AP Relig'on Writer Evangelist Billy Graham, a Southerner who insisted on ra- cial integration before it ever became a popular religious cause in Ihs United States, has finallv managed, after two decades of trviiw to carry his policy into South Af- rica Back from his first venture there, the globe-girdling evan- gelist says: "It was historic. Nothing cruite like it had ever happened there.'' On his 10-day stay. Graham held the largest public rallies of mixed blacks and whites ever held in that nation of en- forced anartheid and outspo- kenly criticized racial tion as unchristian and un- workable. "Those black brethren hugging and kissing me and practically carrying me in their arms." Graham related in an interview. "One of them yelled. 'You're our hero'.' They felt that somsthing mo- mentous had taken place, that a real breakthrough had oc- curred." It had taken 21 years for Graham to obtain conditions of genuine racial openness for h i s large-scale there, years in which he had repeatedly rejected invitations to go there until the standards which he demanded were met. They finally were. All terms met "Something new was begun he said. "I seriously doubt if things car be quite the same again. They met every condition ire laid down. committee had to be integrated. The choirs had to be integrated. The ushers and counsellors had to be inte- grated and the crowds had to be integrated, all mixed to- gether, black and white, salt and pepper. All this was done. The hotels where we stayed had been integrated." In rallies of 60.000 in Johan- nesburg and 53 000 in Durban and in several news confer- ences.

"At first, some wanted an arrangement that has been used there, with blacks on one side and whites on the other." Graham said. "But we wouldn't accept that. People had to be seated wherever they wanted to sit, and that's the way it was." At Durban, he said, half the crowd was black, and in Jo- hannesburg. a third was black.

As for South Africa, "al- most everyone I talked to rec- ognized that change is coming rapidly, that it can't be stooped." ''I was personally amazed at how openly the subject is discussed. I'm just hoping the problem can be resolved with- out bloodshed and violence." Asked about the chances for that, he said: "It's touch and go. Some people tay, 'Give us a generation and we will solve the problem.' but I don't be- lieve they have a generation of time. Change is rushing in on South Africa as fast as it rushed in on the South 15 years ago."
