TAUJt Premier Smuts Forced to Resign Defect ki H«l*« IM* C«rMr «f African Uad«r , . --- . — An *r» of South African history ended UxUy M Jan Christ! »n •mute,; •Ider Jtatesman of th« British teplr* retigned u pj-im* min- uter. , Dr. D. y. Ifalan,' leader of tht •ntf-BritUh Nationalist Parly, was to form a new government. Smuts personally and hi« United Parly had gone down to defeat in parliamentary elections which •impha- •ized the increasing separation between South Africa and Britain. Smuts conferred briefly with his cabinet, presumably to tell lliem formally that the election results had left him no alternative but, to resign , and then went to Governor- General Gideon Van Zyl, in Pretoria, to hand in his resignation. It was accepted as a matter of course. The governor-general. However, asked Smuts to remain in olfice while Malan was forming the now government, in order to assure continuity of control of the executive branch of the government. The white-bearded Smuts looked old and tired as he went to Van Zyl's office, bin his head was high and he smiled a s he shrugged his shoulders and told reporters: "These things happej). What Is to be will be." .Villon Surprised The nation still was thunderstruck by the outcome of the elections held Wednesday. Even the victorious Nationalists found It hard to believe that, with the aid of thtir allies ,the smaller Afrikaner Party, they would hold a majority of five seats in the ne*' parliament. Actually, the working- majority they will have will be only lour, since one seat will be held by (lie speaker of the new house. What the policy of Malan's new government will be was not clear. As in the case of most opposition parties everywhere, his leadership has been based on attacking the regime in power. The victors are strong nntionnl- ists, with white supremacy as their major platform. They" are pledged to a party platform of succession from the British Empire and creation of an independent republic.; This is not expected to bear fruit quickly but it is a long-range possibility. • Smuts was defeated by 224 vote.'; In his home constituency of stand- erton, In the Transvaal, which he has represented in parliament lor 24 years. The defeat came three days after his 18th birthday. Winner over Smuts was" Went- Ml Duplessis. former secretary to the Argent Nationalist leader. Gen. J. B. M. Hertaog.
