Change in Pretoria?

January 1975
National Review;1/17/1975, Vol. 27 Issue 1, p20
The article focuses on the political conditions in South Africa. Prime Minister John Vorster has speeded up the process of creating autonomous African homelands. It is expected that Pretoria will offer some formula for compromise on the Southwest Africa issue. As South Africa is the world's leading producer of gold, there is a possibility of better relations between the U.S. and South Africa. If Arabian oil gives the Arabs political leverage in the West, South African gold promises to provide comparable leverage because of its implications for international finance.
