million blacks are barred from

The conservative Nationalists, bol-
stered by white concern over racial
tension, seemed capable of extending i ii
their 70 per cent control of the
current Parliament- in which they
hold 116 of 165 seats.
VORSTER CALLED elections 18
months early. He was seeking sup-
port for a proposed new constitution
that would set up separate parlia-
ments for the 4.5 million whites, 2.5
million persons of mixed race and
750,000 Asians. There would be no D O
representation for the blacks, who DOOR
make up 70 per cent of the popula- PLANT
tion.
Vorster also wants a mandate to
reject what he calls "meddling" by
the United States and other nations in
South African domestic affairs.
He and his wife, Tini, were among
the first to vote, casting their ballots H
in drizzling rain at a booth at aHo
