Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Bitterness^ tension ease By KENNETII L. WIlITrNG . PRETORIA (AP) - There are hints of relaxation in the long and bitter conflict between black and wWte countries in Africa. For more than a decade the continent's white-ruled southern tip and the newly Independent states to the north viewed each other with fear and contempt.

The woman's hoax was revealed when police discovered a small tape recorder slie used to deceive people that licr unborn baby could recite extracts from the Koran. Her husband also has been detain cd. they would tolerate no interference. Bitterness and tension Increased in the late '70s until it appeared no negotiating room was left. Now there are small signs of a breakthrough. From the South African viewpoint it is one result of Prime Minister Vorster's "outward-looking" foreign policy of mutual c(M)pcration and aid for friendly black neighbors. This was first outlined more than two years ago. Skeptics suggested that Vorster aimed at creating a ring of neutralized buffer countries around South Africa and economically dependent on South Africa. STILL SENSITIVE Foreign Minister Hilgand Muller indicates Pretoria is still sensitive on this point. He told a political meeting: "We want our neighbors to become our friends voluntarily. We do not want an iron curtain around South Africa. We want to establish a friendly circle of free, independent states in this part of Africa," Geography puts the former British territories of Botswana, LcsoIIk) and Swaziland into South Africa's economic orbit. The unrecognized regime in breakaway Rhodesia depends heavily on South Africa for moral and financial support. Malawi was the first real HURMURT AUCTION SERVICE LTD.

MEET SUCCESS For more than a year In-formied sources in other parts of black Africa reported that South A f r 1 c a's economic overtures were meeting with increasing success. Trade with more than half a dozen countries in east and west Africa de v e 1 o p e d under various guises.

There is no sign of an early detente, but Uie proposal may eventually mean an end to the era of empty threats and coun-terthreats. It could conceivably clear the way to devoting more money toward economic development and less to the politics of race.
