At a prelude to (he first evauu- itlon order, originally scheduled for Saturday, all public meetings were banned in the Johannesburg area for the next 20 days.

The flight was directed by a hooded mystery man, an ANC leader hunted by police for helping to organize the resistance campaign his group is leading. For awhile he traveled in a reporter's automobile, getting out occasionally in murky alleys to whisper instructions to the movers. Police cars trailed foreign correspondents touring the area. Whenever the newsmen stopped to talk with residents, the police ordered them to move on. Prime Minister Johannes Strij- dom's Nationalist government plans to move 60,000 Africans from the western part of the city to new homes outside the metropolis. The government calls the program slum clearance. It will segregate the races but will leave the Negroes close enough to the city to provide a labor force. Backing the ANC opposition to the move are such prominent white South Africans as Alan Paton, author of the novel "Cry the Beloved Country"; Patrick Duncan, son o( South Africa's first governor general, and the Rev. Tevor Huddleston, Anglican missionary and chairman of the Black-White Western Areas Protest Commission. They have termed the evacuations "legalized theft." A spokesman for the ANC said the congress planned to call a "kneel-down" prayer day protest strike soon.
