SOUTHERNER IN THE WHITE HOUSE:

Drawl in

v

WASHINGTON (Reuter) -
President Jimmy Carter brings
a new sound to the White House:
the rounded accent of southern
speech where dropped Rs make'
farmer come out "fomma" and
Georgia "Jaw-ja."
Suddenly, the southern drawl
is the vogue in this capital city
- a way of talking no longer
ridiculed, and, in fact, very
much to be emulated.
CARTER'S is not quite t h e
nasal twang of a Lyndon John-
son, whose Texas inflection had
him talking to "mah fellah Am-
ericans" about the "Veet Nom"
war.
Nor, perhaps, does it have the
linguistic pecularities of a Ken-
nedy, whose Boston style had
him in conflict with Fidel Cas-

tro's "Cuber" in that crisis of!
days "pahst."!
Still, it is a speech like none
other.
THE SOUTHERN drawl, in
earlier times, might have been
scorned - particularly by those
"damned Yankees" - as indi-
cative of the cornball yokel giv-
en to chewing "tobacckey."
In Carter's case, however, the
speech is something different:
almost always grammatically
correct and often somewhat clip-
ped: the sound of a man on the
move.
For those not accustomed to
Carterese, the following guide
may prove useful:
Ah - First person noun, as
in Ah promise if elected.

>gue
-Jis - For emphasis, as in,
Ah's jis a plain Jaw-ja fomma.
-Pawful - What the Amer-
ican President is: A pawful
leader.
-Dape - As opposed to shal-
low; as in a dape commitment
to something.
-Gummint - The federal bur-
eaucracy to which one brings a
dape commitment.
-Vurry - An adverb used for
emphasis, as Ah'm vurry glad
to be the leader of this pawful
gummint.
-Thank - To .meditate or
ponder, as Ah thank this is a
pawful important commitment.
-Y'all - Every one of you.
- Heah - As in, Y'll come,
heah?

JOHANNESBURG, S o u t h
Africa- (P) - Roman Catholic
schools, defying apartheid laws, i
have opened their doors to all
races, prompting governmentI
threats .yesterday to close the
schools.
Five private Catholic schools
in the Johnnesburg area, two in
Port Elizabeth in the Cape pro-
vince and two in Windhoek,
South-West Africa, admitted
about 80 black, Indian or mixed
race students.
THE ADMINISTRATOR of the;
Cape Province, L. A. Munnik,
said that unless the schools meet
the requirements that they ed-
ucate only European-o-igin
children, the withdrawal f their
registration and the closing of
schools enrolling non-white pu-
pils would be considered.
In a statement, Munnik said:
"It has come to my attention
via press reports that two pri-
vate schools in Port Elizabeth,
registered for European puni1s
with this administration, liave
admitted non-Eiironean children
in the past few days."
The Holy Rosary Convent in
Port Elizabeth admitted 32 black
and mixed race girls. One pupil
