rule the roost By ARTHUR EDSON WASHINGTON W The kill ings the brutalities the horrors in the news from South Africa add one more terrible page to that countrys bitter history Terror is no stranger there Seven years ago in a book on his countrys problems David Marquard a South African was writing For 150 years the history of South Africa has been a his tory of struggle and conflict conflict

vulged POSSBILY WE f Americans with our own Civil are best able to understand South Africa Yet if youll join me on a trek to the library of the National Society youll soon learn that the differences are greater than the similarities Here even in most of the South whites outnumber the blacks In South Africa the whites are a small minority Here the Negro has at least in theory legal equality There the white man rules the roost politically and economically and he aims to stay there Or to quote from the South African official year book SOUTH AFRICA is the only country in the world where a 1 small dominant white commu nity has followed a definite pol icy of maintaining its purity of race in the midst of overwhelm ing numbers of nonEuropean inhabitants The population breaks down like this Asians 43100 including about 250000 Indians descendants of untouchables who migrated to Africa 100 years ago Colored or mixed races 1319000 Its that top three million whites who count and even here it pays to be among the elite of the elite The Afrikaners you may remember them by their former name the descended from Dutchmen Ger mans and French Hugenots Each racial group is supposed to live apart work apart stay apart BUT THESE ARE days of great upheaval The Bantus have no vote little schooling and their income in some areas is so low theres no way to measure it Threequarters of the popula tion Marquard writes is un dereducated and underpaid South African history is dotted with such notes as these The massacre of 1838 the Zulu re bellion of 1879 the Durban riot ing of 1949 And with all the combustible elements the conclusion has to be that not the whites but ter ror will all too often be the ruling force in troubled South Africa N ews in a utshell FROM OUR WIRE SERVICES LOSS CEDAR
