LONDON (/P)-The assassination
of Prime Minister Hendrik F. Ver-
woerd of South Africa brought
expressions of shock from many
nations although most of them
detested his racial policies.
Some officials expressed the
view that his death was the result
of those policies.
Prime Minister Harold Wilson
sent a message to acting Prime
Minister Theophilus Donges say-
ing: "I was shocked to hear the
views of the assassination of Dr.
Verwoerd. Please accept condol-
ences on behalf of members of the
British government and myself
and give our sympathy to Dr. Ver-
woerd's family."
In Washington, President John-
son sent a message of regret to
South African President Charles
R. Swart and privately called the
assassination a deplorable act.
U Thant
Said Secretary-General U Thant
at United Nations headquarters
in New York: "This is deplorable,
because any violent action is de-
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.,
president of the Southern Chris-
tian Leadership Conference, said
in Atlanta, Ga.:
"Few individuals in modern

times have been so insidious and
diabolical in their schemes of op-
pression as Hendrik Verwoerd, but
even in his case, one must deplore
the fanatical act of assassination.
"Unfortunately, a man like Ver-
woerd only symbolizes and- syste-
matizes the hates and fears of
South Africa's white population.
His murder will do little to put an
end to the racist climate which
oppresses South Africa's 12 mil-
lion black citizens."
Roy Wilkins, executive director
of the National Association for
the Advancement of Colored Peo-
ple, said:
"The NAACP opposes everything
Prime Minister Verwoerd and his
government stood for, but we do
not believe issues can be solved
through assassination."
Don Smith, director of public
relations for the Congress of Ra-
cial Equality, said the use of "force
as a weapon of political redress is
to be regretted."
"But the death of this exponent
of, the obnoxious doctrine of apar-
theid can do no harm to South
Africa," Smith said. "We feel that
the denial of rights of black Afri-
cans to be a part of their own
country is not only wrong, but
against humanity."

U.N. Ambassador John W. S.1
Malecela of Tanzania, whose gov-
ernment had strongly opposed
South Africa's racial segregation,
said the assassination was a pos-
sible forwarning of more violence.
In Canada, acting Prime Min-
ister Paul Martin sent a message
of condolence to Donges and said:
"The Canadian government re-
grets this shocking act of vio-

representatives on the first day of
the Commonwealth Conference.

Said Prime Minister Lee Kuan
Yew of Singapore: "It is very sad.
Naturally, if you run regimes like
that this is part of the risk."
President Archbishop Makarios
of Cyprus said he .could not say
that Verwoerd's assassination wasa
connected with the white supre-
macy struggle. He added: "Assas-
sinations are terrible things. I am
