JOHANNESBURG, South Africa (AP) - The
American Chamber of Commerce said yesterday it
will build Soweto's first private commercial high
school and community center to begin training blacks
for management jobs.
Chamber of Commerce members told a news con-
ference here that it presently was "impossible" to
find a black qualified to be an office manager, and
that unless action was taken immediately, U.S. com-
panies would be faced with a chronic shortage of
skilled labor to run their branches in South Africa.
THE DECISION to build the $4 million complex in
the satellite black township coincides with the white
minority government's plan to spend $115 million on
black teacher-training institutions and community
schools. Private companies have also made moves
recently to sponsor their own training programs.

Construction on the school, in which 600 students
will be enrolled, is scheduled to begin in January, and
will be financed by money raised by some of the 300
U.S. companies here, 100 of which are chamber
members.
U.S. companies here are under fire at home from
critics who say their presence indirectly supports the
government's racist policies. U.S. businesses, most
of whom subscribe to a code prescribing equal em-
ployment conditions for all races, say their presence
has improved conditions for black workers.
THE BRITISH Barclays National Bank also an-
nounced that it will build a $4 million dollar "fully in-
tegrated" school in Johannesburg. The school is
scheduled to be completed in 1981, when the
American school is due to open.
To critics of South Africa's racial segregation
policies, which have institutionalized separate

education systems for blacks and whites, the current
efforts to improve the situation for blacks are too lit'
tie, too late.
Their main objection is the discrepancy in funds
allocated to the different racial groups. Last year, the
government spent more than $1 billion on educating
the children of South Africa's 4.4 million white
population, and only $540 million on the youngsters
among the non-white population of more than 20
million people.
In addition, more than 5,000 of the 29,000 black
teachers employed by the government in black
schools last year were unqualified.
In Soweto, the nation's largest city with 1.2 million
blacks, the secondary school enrollment is expected
to triple from 15,000 last eyear to 46,000 next year,
leaving the school system about 350 teachers short.

Commerce secretary resigns

(Continued from Page '1)
WHEN CARTER'S relations with the
business community ebbed, she
organized discussion groups between
the president and top business
executives. Experts say these meetings
contributed to changes in the ad-
ministration's economic priorities - a
shift to greater emphasis in the fight
against inflation and to encouraging
more investment.
Her departure would make her the
sixth person to leave the 12-member
Carter cabinet since the mid-July
shake-up undertaken by the president
to revitalize his administration.
In the reshuffle that followed Carter's

Camp David "Domestic Summit," the
president dismissed or accepted the
resignations of Treasury Secretary
Michael Blumenthal, Energy Secretary
James Schlesinger, Transportation
Secretary Brock Adams, Attorney
General Griffin Bell and Health,
Education and Welfare (HEW)
Secretary Joseph Califano.
IN THE SAME shake-up, Patricia
Harris remained within the cabinet but
shifted from the Housing and Urban
Development Department to succeed
Califano at HEW.
In addition, U.N. Ambassador An-
drew Young, who had cabinet rank,
resigned under fire last month for an
unauthorized meeting with a Palestine

Liberation Organization (PLO) official.
Kreps, who commuted to North
Carolina several weekends a month to
see her family, made no secret of her
dislike for the long hours and solitary
life she led in Washington.
"I FEEL that living alone has got to
be uncivilized - not having anyone to
say good morning or good night to," she
said earlier this year. "I hate it. I solve
it by working all the time."
Kreps planned to take a vacation with
her husband and three children when
her resignation became effective at the
end of this month, officials said.
There was no immediate word on who
might replace her as head of the Com-
merce Department.
