The report showed the increase in total personal income in 1973 in the four Western provinces was greater than the national average, with only one other Edward average Saskatchewan had the greatest percentage gam. with a 26- per-cent jump to 453 billion, while New Brunswick showed the smallest increase with 11 6 per cent from the 1973 figure of billion Total personal income country-wide was 992 billion, up 14 per cent from billion in 1972. Canadians living abroad experienced an 11 7 per cent in- crease in their personal income, to million P E I was second among provinces in proportional gains as personal income grew by 20 per cent to million On- tario was second from the bottom in percentage gains, up 2 5 per cent to billion The percentage increases and 1973 totals for the other provinces were Alberta, 17 3 per cent, 279 billion. British Columbia. 15.5 per cent, billion: Manitoba. 15 1 per cent, billion, Quebec, 134 per cent, billion Newfoundland, 13 3 per cent, 493 billion, and Nova Scotia, 13 per cent, 682 billion The total for the territories was million, up 13 4 per cent Guns, revolt change face of Africa LOURENCO MARQUES, Mozambique (AP) Guns and revolution are changing the face of Africa from feudal Ethiopia and the swamps of Guinea-Bissau to the strong- holds of white rule in the south In just six days, Sept 7 to Sept 12, more than 35 million black Africans and about 000 whites found themselves with new rulers and facing an uncertain future. Two unrelated gradual withdrawal from Africa and a coup in have swept away much of the dusty past The crumbling of Portugal's empire in black Africa follows a trend of rising African na- tionalism and political agita- tion that exploded shortly- after the Second World War By 1957, Britain was lower- ing the Union Jack in Ghana. A year later President Sekou Toure of Guinea abruptly broke away from French rule The wave of independence crested in 1960 as 16 more black African nations won freedom from three of Africa's major imperial France and Belgium. They included Nigeria, Af- rica's most populous nation with over 60 million people, and the Belgian Congo, now called Zaire Throughout the 1960s more countries gradually won inde- pendence. By 1970, African na- tionalism had given birth to 33 new nations, stretching in a giant triangle from Mauritania in the west to Somalia in the east and Swaziland and Lesotho in the south. Spain, however, maintained its hold on Spanish Sahara and Portugal fought to keep its territories of Mozambique and Angola. Spain recently promised a referendum to be followed soon by independence in Spanish Sahara and Portugal, the last major colonial power, already has bowed to the trend of history Mozambique will have full independence by next June 25. and tiny, poverty-stricken Guinea-Bissau has won full in- dependence after a 12-year struggle. On the other side of the continent. 82-year-old Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia, the world's oldest and longest-reigning monarch, was deposed in a military coup Sept 12 Selassie, who ruled his im- poverished country as dictator for almost half a century, was unceremoniously arrested and taken from his marble palace in the back of a Volkswagen by the young reformist military officers now ruling his 26 million subjects Mozambique, like Guinea- Bissau and Angola, Portugal s third and richest African col- ony, also preparing for self- determination, will be ruled by Africans thanks only to armed revolt It took more than a decade of guerrilla war in all three Portuguese colonies, fought by African nationalists backed by Soviet and Chinese arms, to force Portugal to abandon more than a half-century of rule in Africa The provisional government of Mozambique, ready to take office, may face troubles from white dissidents but few doubt Frelimo will take full control next vear But Angola, a wealth} na- tion of 5 3 million Africans and whites, could prove a more difficult proposition Three rival African groups who have fought each other as much as the Portuguese over the years have been unable to mend their differences and the Portuguese have been un- able to negotiate an independence agreement This has left open the possi- bility of Angola's numerous whites staging a successful re- volt against African rule, possibly with the help of mercenary forces The stakes are high in Angola where oil. diamonds, high-grade iron ore. copper and other minerals provide the potential to make it one of Africa's richest countries The prospect of militant African governments holding power in Mozambique and Angola by next year has shaken the remaining bastions of white rule to the south Western diplomats and other political observers in the region predict that Rhodesia will be known by its African name. Zimbabwe, in less than three jears African rule in Angola also promises to open up new possibilities of guernlia at- tacks on South West Africa, now controlled by South Africa Middle East and Africa ripe for Alberta goods EDMONTON
