Monday, LETHBRIDGE HERALD-7 Paton still optimistic about apartheid resolve By PAUL HOFMANN New York Times Service NEW YORK Alan Paton, the South African writer who early raised an eloquent voice to decry the racial policies of his country, said this weekend that "we have won a stay of He was referring to the vetoes by the United States, Britain and Prance in the United Nations security coun- cil on Wednesday that blocked a drive to oust South Africa from the world organization.

"It's the era, I won't say of white supremacy, but of white survival." Yet, the 71 year old author of Cry, The Beloved Country, Tales From a Troubled Land and other poig- nant books about South Africa thinks that a little time for peaceful change is still left. "It is my great hope that we will solve our problems without recourse to revolution and Mr. Paton declared. "Our ruling politicians have suddenly come to the realization that the days of apartheid are over." Apartheid is the Afrikaans name for the institutionalized system of racial separation in force in South Africa.

(CP) Premier Ed Schreyer of Manitoba says governments in Canada are going to have to be prepared to use tougher methods to fight economic problems. In a speech to a political meeting, the Premier called for a tougher attitude by both federal and provincial gevernments toward problems of inflation, economic inequities and regional disparities in Canada.

"Most of the time, governments are too timid in terms of what they are prepared to try to do during times of peace "It is only in times of war that governments have seen fit to go to whatever measures were considered necessary in terms of finance, without be- ing afraid of limits." Premier Schreyer said there is a need for federal ac- tion to stabilize livestock prices and spread industrial development to less developed areas of Canada, such as the West. WASHINGTON (AP) Black candidates are seeking office in record numbers this year, but few are expected to win new seats in the United States Congress. The most significant vic- tories are expected to be on the state level wheie, for the first time, blacks may be elected lieutenant-governor in California and Colorado. But only one black, an un- derdog, has major party back- ing for a Senate seat, and any black gains in the House of Representatives are expected to be small. In Colorado, George Brown, after 20 years as a state sena- tor, seeks the No. 2 state of- fice, lieutenant-governor, on a Democratic ticket headed by Richard Lamm. Polls give the Democrats a slight lead over the Republican team of John Vanderhoof and Ted Strickland. The race issue has not been raised openly in the campaign but, Brown says, "most Colo- rado citizens have racism to a lesser degree." "I'm not running as a black man but running as a qualified person who's also black." REASON TO DREAM His election "will open up some new areas of dreaming" for minority children in a state where only four per cent of the population is black, Brown says. "There are some folks who will vote against me because of a white racist feeling. There are others who are go- ing to vote for me because of the opposite reaction. I think the two tend to balance themselves out." In California, the governor and lieutenant-governor do not run as a ticket, but state Senator Mervyn Dymally, a native of Trinidad, expects help from the expected vic- tory of Democratic governor candidate Jerry Brown. Dymally represents a low- income section of Los Angeles in the state legislature. His opponent is conser- vative Republican John Harmer, recently appointed lieutenant-governor by Gov. Ronald Reagan after Ed Reinecke stepped down following a perjury con- viction. NOTTROUBLED Harmer is using pictures of himself and Dymally in his ad- vertisements. Dymally was asked if he thought Harmer was trying to let voters know Dymally is black. "We appear on Dymally said "We never try to hide the fact that I am black. We are not troubled by that." Blacks have served as lieu- tenant-governors in South Carolina and Louisiana, through appointment during the Reconstruction era that followed the U.S. civil war. No blacks have a major- party designation in a race for governor. Minor-party black nominees are on the ballots in Nebraska and New York, and in Georgia, a black man is conducting a write-in cam- paign for governor. THREE SEEK SENATE Three blacks seek U.S. Senate seats. In Connecticut, Republican James Brannen is running against incumbent Democrat Abraham Ribicoff, who is seeking his third term. The airline pilot and former state legislator is the first black to receive the Senate nod from either major party in that state Blacks are running on Com- munist party tickets for Senate seats in Illinois and New York The only current black sena- tor, Edward Brooke (Rep. Mass.) is not up for re- election this year. In House elections, 15 in- cumbent black representa- ex- pected to win re-election, and the Joint Centre for Political Studies says two other Democrats facing white incumbent Republicans have good chances. They are Matthew Perry, a civil rights lawyer from Columbia, S.C., who seeks to unseat Floyd Spence in that state's 2nd District, and Harold Ford, a state represen- tative running against Dan Kuykendall in Tennessee's 8th District. HAS A CHANCE Another black, Republican Norman Hodges, is given a fair chance of unseating a Democrat, Charles Wilson, in California's 31st congressional district in sub- urban Los Angeles. Hodges is a retired businessman and a founder of the Green Power Foundation, a self-help organization for black business leaders. In all. 53 blacks are running for House seats as opposed to 44 who ran in 1972.
