Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 27, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta LIBRARY MEMBERS Nearly one-third of Britain's total population of about 55.3 million, are registered mem- bers of public libraries. A place to view This is an exterior and interior view of Quebec's Musee d'Art Contemporain In Montreal. The Musee d'Art, a branch of th e Quebec provincial department of cultural affairs, has been assisting Loyola College in a study of what interests people most in art galleries. South Africa's tough race policy softened CROWDED ISLAND Britain's about W7 population density, persons a square mile, is one erf the highest in the I world. SETTLED EARLY Colombia, in northwest South America, was inhabited perhaps as early as DC, by In- dians. WMlnMdoy, June 27, 1973 THE LETHMIDGE HERALD 43 FIFTH LARGEST Brazil, the fifth-largest coun- try in the world, Is bordsred by every country in South America except Chile and Ecuador. TWO LANGUAGES Cameroon is the only African country in which both French and English are official guages. CAPE TOWN parliamentary session which has just ended here brought sig- nificant shifts in South Africa's race policy in response to grow- ing pressure for change. The government, which cele- brated 25 years in power during the five-month session, says the change is part of a long-term plan, in keeping with the offi- cial policy of apartheid. But the Rand Daily Mail says the session was "characterized by the great retreat from apar- theid which is now well under way. ''In the face of inexorable pressures on the labor, sport, economic, and even Bantustan fronts, the government is hav- ing to retreat from it." When parliament opened this year, its members were faced with strikes in Durban involving more than of them "non-whites." GAIN SOME RIGHTS Labor Minister Marais Vil- joen then introduced a bill which gives Africans the right to limited circum- the first time in 31 years. No sooner had the strikes de- clined than The Guardian news- paper in Britain began a cam- paign against what it called "starvation wages" paid by British firms to African work- ers. While the campaign had some success among both local and foreign firms, the government also had to take a stand on the issue. Its initial support for the movement for higher pay was tempered, however, by concern over possible inflationary trends if Africans receive massive pay in terms of per- centages rather than cash. Prime Minister John Vorster told the house of assembly: "The idea of pell mell increases in wages of people simply to yield to pressure from certain quarters in Britain and the United States is quite wrong. People should be paid in accor- dance to productivity.' But at the same time, the governments wage board was told to re-examine minimum pay rates in five key industries, and new legislation was in- troduced to improve training opportunities for blacks. WHITES COME FIRST The policy of job reservation, which insures every employable white a job, will remain, but the government is showing in- creasing awareness that Afri- cans are going to be around in white areas for many yeSrs, if not forever. Punt Janson, the deputy min- ister of Bantu (African) admin- istration, said recently that Af- ricans in the 87 per cent of South Africa which remains white "must be kept happy." On another front, the Africans in the other 13 per Af- rican con- tinued to be a thorn in the side of the government. Final plans for the consoli- dation of the nine "Bantustans" were passed this almost every homeland leader has submitted demands for ei- ther more land or greater con- solidation. Most want white towns to give them some commercial and industrial outlets in what are almost exclusively poor ag- ricultural areas. The government again says it will not succumb to the de- mands of men like Chief Gatsha Buthelezi, of Kazulu, and ap- peals to them to be reasonable.
