Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Many believe showdown fast approaching n tii mam j, wivuvr n me LEinomuuc ncnAUU la New York Times Service JOHANNESBURG, South Africa The feeling is strong here among informed people in politics, business, the un- iversities and the press that the showdown for South Africa is fast approaching. The next year or two, many think, will determine whether this unhappy land of wealth and apartheid will move toward a more decent and open society or become a still more repressive and fascistic society that is likely to end in South African gov't leaders live in fear of internal change violence. The nationalist government leaders appear to live in fear fear of internal change and rebellion, fear of assault from the outside by blacks backed by Communists. And, strange- ly enough, the nationalist leaders, who are members of a party closely identified with the German Nazis during the great depression and World War II, now see a parallel between their cause and that of Israel, beleaguered by hostile outside forces. The parallel seems ridiculous to some Jews here, such as Helen Suzman, the courageous representative of the Progressive party in Parliament. Mrs. Suzman, who has often felt the last of anti-semitism from her political opponents, said last week, "I just love those aging photographs they make me look like a Jewish vulture eating small Christian children." But South Africa is endless- ly paradoxical. The relations between Afrikaners, those stern Calvinists, and the Jews are far more complex than merely anti-semitic. A Jewish lawyer and historian here, Gus Saron, speaks of "the Afrikaner's devotion to the book, especially to the old testament, and how he iden- tifies his own struggles and sufferings with those of the Israelites." Saron praises the "long-standing sympathy and good will" of Afrikaner leaders and the rank and file toward the Zionist movement and Israel. But he concedes that is just one side of the story. On the other side are Afrikaner at- tacks on the Jew for not iden- tifying himself with the Afrikaner's striving to main- tain his own language and group identity and for Jews siding with the Afrikaner's "enemy" the British and, nowadays, the blacks. As their nervous parents look on, many Jewish students here along with many of their gentile colleagues are working to organize unions of black workers. They are taking grave risks for the sake of freedom. Dissidents here face severe repression including "banning" a kind of excom- munication and imprison- ment as well. This year a long list of members of the South African students organization and of the black peoples con- vention have been banned denied all their civil rights. South Africa is rapidly changing from a mining and agricultural economy, found- ed on cheap labor, into a modern high-technology economy. Business sees an in- creasingly urgent need for more highly skilled and educated workers, and knows these must increasingly come from the black population which constitutes three- fourths of the total population and is growing much faster than the whites. South African business does not want its growth throttled, its future wrecked, by the racial chains that bind this society, and by government policies that force a migratory labor system upon blacks; hold millions in ig- norance, poverty and bon- dage; deny an education to black children; deny countless families the chance of living together; deny blacks the right to bargain collectively and exclude them from higher-level jobs.
