the principle." The closed shop is seen
by many blacks as a basic obstacle to
their advancement, especially in in-
dustries controlled by all-white unions.
Botha said the right to belong to a
union initially would be reserved for
those blacks with accommodation and
permanent work, and would not be ex-
tended at first to migrant workers.
Botha estimated that there were
about a million migrant workers in
South Africa out of a black labor force
in the white areas of more than four
million. He said the government might
give limited union rights to migrant
workers in the future.
Botha said existing laws prohibiting
involvement by unions in politics would
be extended to meet the new situation.
He did not believe that giving blacks
economic power in white areas even-

tually might force the government to
give them political power.

Police said Richard Barnard, a 34-
year-old Ann Arbor man, has been
charged with assault with intent to do
great bodily harm less than murder in
the shooting which occurred near
Packard and Vaughn at about 5:30 a.m.
Barnard was jailed without bond
pending a psychiatric examination. A
preliminary hearing has been
scheduled for May 9 in 15th District
ACCORDING TO the Ann Arbor
News, in 1976, Barnard was charged
with attempted murder after he
allegedly shot at an Ann Arbor police
detective in the City Hall garage. The
detective, Barnard Price, was unhar-
med and arrested Barnard who was
armed with a .25-caliber handgun.
Court records show the charge was
dismissed. Also dismissed that same
year was another attempted murder
charge when Barnard allegedly

assaulted his mother on Feb. 16, 1976.
Court documents also failed to show
why the charges were dismissed or
whether Barnard had been committed
to a mental institution.
IN TUESDAY'S shooting, police said
the .bullet slammed into the left front
hood area of a car driven by 17-year-old
Alfredo Canales, after a man stepped
off a curb into the traffic lane armed
with a rifle. He aimed at Canales' car
and fired.
Officers arrested Barnard only
minutes later, while he was still
carrying a .22-caliber rifle.
Police still have not been able to
provide a motive for the shooting.
