Are Changes Quick Enough To Satisfy Militant Blacks? By Larry Heinierling JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - tfi -- The multiracial constitutional conference announced in white-ruled Rhodeisa is a key feature in South Africa's long-term strategy for peace in southern Africa. The growing threat of a racial conflagration has spurred South Africa -- the most powerful bastion of white minority rule in Africa -- to seek detente with black Africa. A major diplomatic offensive mounted by Prime Minister John Vorster, under way for almost a year, is aimed at reducing racial tensions and promoting economic cooperation with African states. The dream is to win black Africa's acceptance of four million whites in South Africa living and ruling themselves in peace and prosperity. The strategy appears to include pressuring Rhodesia into a political settlement with the black majority, granting indpend- ence to South-West Africa and South Africa's homelands or tribal reserves, gradually easing apartheid (race separation) at home and pumping millions of dollars in economic aid into neighboring black states. THE QUESTION is whether South Africa can move quickly enough to satisfy the militant demands of black Africans at .home and abroad for change. "I believe the choice lies between peace on the one hand and escalation of violence on the other." Vorster declared in a major , policy declaration last Oct. 23 before the Senate in Cape Town. "Africa has been good to us and we are prepared to give back to Africa something of what we have so richly received over the years as far as it is in our power to do," he said. A breakthrough came.when President Kenneth Kaunda of Zambia hailed the speech as "the voice of reason for which Africa and the rest of the world have been waiting." Vorster followed up his address with secret tips for talks with President Felix · Houphouet-Boigny of the Ivory Coast, President Leopold Senghor of Senegal and President William Tolbert of Liberia. . . South Africa's new policy of detente ; came as the Portuguese empire collapsed in Southern Africa, sweeping away South , Africa's white-ruled "buffer zone" in An- · gola and Mozambique. The new policy also emerged at a time of severe economic strain on African states because of skyrocketing fuel prices, acute food shortages and dwindling ecori- ; omic aid. - · : Impartial observers say .they are con: "vinced that economic cooperation between · : black African states and the most modern and fastest-growing economy south of the Sahara would help improve the entire re- · v ' gion. ." " · , They argue that industrially advanced .'South Africa would provide aid,'technolcr gy. know-how and manufactured goods to black Africa in exchange for raw materials and political recognition more cheaply and efficiently than Africa's traditional sources in Europe. Rhodesia, where 250,000 whites hold political power over 5.4 million blacks, now has become the major issue in South Afri- ca's hopes of better relations with black Africa. South Africa has been applying steady pressure on Rhodesia's Prime Minister Ian Smith to reach agreement with the black majority- Two weeks ago. South Africa announced it was withdrawing its estimated 2.- 000-rnan paramilitary force that had been helping fight black guerrillas in Rhodesia. * * * IT APPEARED TO BE the final blow to Smith's government, which announced 1\ WEST VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT OF WELFARE BACK TO SCHOOL CLOTHING CERTIFICATES ARE WELCOME AT LEE DICKINSON PHONE 342-7157 SAVE ON SILVER!
