Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Bitterness, tension ease By KENNETH L. WHITING . PRETORIA (AP) - There are hints of relaxation in the long and bitter conflict between black and white 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. Militant black leaders condemned racial segregation and threatened to "liberate" blacks in the south. A succession of South African leaders warned 'Miracle baby' hoaxer back in custody JAKARTA (Reuter) - Tjut Zahara Fonna, 23, a Indonesian woman who escaped from custody not long after her elaborate "miracle baby" hoax was uncovered, has been recaptured, a police spokesman said here. The woman's hoax was revealed when police discovered a small tape recorder she used to deceive people that her unborn baby could recite extracts from the Koran. Her husband also has been detained. they would tolerate no interfer- j ence. 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 co-operation 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 Hilgard 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, Lesotho 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 HURLBURT AUCTION SERVICE LTD.

In exchange for diplomatic recognition, Pretoria provided medical technicians and other specialists, communications equipment and funds to underwrite President H.

MEET SUCCESS For more than a year informed sources in other parts of black Africa reported that South A f r i 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. Muller went to Malagasy in November to sign an economic pact through which South Africa will lend the Madagascar republic $3.25 million to develop tourism. Diplomatic links seem likely. The Ivory Coast president, Felix Houphouet-Boigny, has suggested that black African leaders discuss the opening of "a dialogue" with South Africa. Five other French-speaking countries and Ghana supported his proposal. A similar number of nations rejected the idea. There is no sign of an early detente, but the 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 devel opment and less to the politics of race. May appoint minister for S of W report OTTAWA (CP) - Prime Min ister Trudeau hinted in the Commons Tuesday that he may appoint a minister responsible for the report of the royal commission on the status of women once a government reorganization bill has been passed by Parliament. Replying to Grace Maclranis (NDP - Vancouver-Kingsway), the prime minister said the reorganization bill, not yet introduced, would give him more flexibility in appointing ministers for specific purposes. Mrs. Maclnnis pressed Mr. Trudeau to say which minister would be given the job now along with the flow of com ments likely to come in on the royal commission report tabled in the Commons Monday. The prime minister replied that there were already ministers deailing with all aspects of life. STRIKES OFTEN Lightning generated by storms around the world strikes the earth 100 times each second.
