10 THI inHWIDGI HCTAID Saturday, February 5, Dishonesty and hypocrisy mark S.A. apartheid policy (AP) A church-sponsored study finds that the South African policy of apartheid is essentially dishon- est and marked by hypocrisy. The report was written by Henry Lever, a professor in so- ciology at Witwatersrand Uni- ve-sity. He says that the official structure of race separation is nothing more than ''a rationali- zation, that is. an attempt to preserve a position of privilege for formulating an ideological system which gives credence or justification to it." Lever's views are presented by the Study Project on Christi- anity in Apartheid Society, a joint program of the South Afri- can Council ot Churches and the Christian Institute, a private re- search-education bodv. PONDERS 'VIRTUES' Lever's assessment of apart- heid, or "separate develop- ment" as it's currently known, ponders what supporters of the policy cite as its virtues. He concludes that they arc rational- izing. "Separation is supposed to be based on cultural and not on racial differences." he writes. "The supporters of the policy claim that they are not moti- vated by a dislike of the non- white. "They also claim that the goal of apartheid is the elimina- tion of prejudice and discrimi- nation. Discrimination is seen as a temporary, but necessary, measure until such time as the Lutheran Council meets in Winnipeg Deplores 4go-it-aloiie' WINNIPEG pres- ident of the Lutheran Council in Canada says the council needs more support from its partner church bodies. Rev. Thomas L. Ristine of London, Ont., in a report pre- pared for the council's annual meetig, deplores a "go-it- alone" trend among churches. The tendency is "hurting the service of the church and it is hurting our service together as a Lutheran Council in Canada." Mr. Ristine says: "As the es- tablished church seems to be on the defensive, it tends to withdraw and protect itself rather than share and launch out with faith." Congregations trying to meet financial commitments tend to go it alone, he says, yet "we probably never needed each other more than we do now." The council's general secre- tary, Rev. Earl J. Treusch of Winnipeg, says of the earmarked for expen- diture in 1971 was not spent. But there was little to cheer about in the under-expenditure, because some service and pro- gramming was not carried out, Mr. Treusch says. The total budget for 1971 was less than for 1970. The university ministry fi- nancing was a "disaster area." Severe budget reductions had caused in grants to campus foundations to be elim- inated from the budget in mid- 1971. Division reports to the sixth annual meeting stress con- tinued co-operative efforts in various church program areas. The council is a co-operative agency of Lu- theran Church of Canada, Lu- theran 'w.uirch in America-Can- ada section and Lutheran Church-Canada. final stage in separation is at- tained. "It is also claimed that the ideology of apartheid is in the best tradition of Western culture and Christianity. 'Hie policy of apartheid is offered as a final solution to the race problem and more espcially the Bantu prob- lem." That is the name used here for blacks. "It is arrogant to regard other peoples as a problem and to offer a final solution for he said. "It could be argued equally well that thp problem in race relations is a white problem. It has been said that the white man's narcissis- tic preoccupation with his own skin color is the chief problem "Despite protestations to thp contrary, the rights and privi- leges of South Africans are de- termined by racial and not by cultural considerations. A black man; no matter how high his level of civilization of adher- ence to Western culture, can never attain the same status of privilege of a white man re- gardless of his level of civiliza tion or Ms adherence to hea- thenism, polygamy, witchcraft or black magic. All restrictive legislation in South Africa is ir terms of racial grounds and not cultural groups. Archbishop of Canterbury CHRISTIAN SCIENCE 1203 4 AVE. 5.

The agency's executive sec- retary, J. George Kell, told a Canadian L u t h e r an meeting the level of assistance was the highest since 1961. He said worth of aid was in used and new clothing, drugs, food and special project items. The balance was in cash grants. The largest cash grant, was to the East Paki- stan refugee project in Coocb Behar, India. Most of the used clothing and layettes shipped went to Palestinian refugees living in 33 camps in and around Da- mascus, Syria. The balance, five per cent, went to Hong Kong. Grants-in-aid included to supply an x-ray unit, mobile health vans and vitamins to a joint Lutheran-Red Cross pro- gram in the East River state of Nigeria. In adition, the national committee for Canada of the Lutheran World Federation gave in 1971 to world de- velopment and relief pro- grams. CENTRAL CHURCH OF CHRIST 425 nth St. S. Mr. D.

On the so-called Jesus Move- ment, he said "it may be some- thing far less than that which Jesus came to bring." Van Wylen president Hope College HOLLAND, Mich. Gordon J.
