stoned when he opened fire on
the students.
At least six pupils were treat-
ed for cuts received when they
ran through windows to escape
police dogs. Other students were
bitten,
Brigadier J. J. Gerber, act-
ing commissioner of police in
Soweto, said police fire five
shots. He said a black constable
shot one black man dead in a
mulk-truck robbery unrelated to
the student demonstration.
POLICE USED DOGS to dis-

Soweto, authorities said.

round of black unrest came aft-
er police, equipped with new pro-
tective shields and helmets, had
limited themselves to nonlethal
riot control measures in recent
weeks.
More than 600 blacks were
killed, many by police gunfire,
across South Africa last year in
racial rioting that began in So-
weto.
YOUNG PEOPL.E were arrest-

ed yesterday- after minor inci-
dents at several locations near
Pretoria. The 20,000 students in
segregated townships near the
South African capital boycotted
classes for the fifth day.
Black South Africans claim
their separate school system
provides education inferior to
that offered whites. The blacks
say their teachers are not al-
ways qualified and that their
schools lack adequate labora-
tories and libraries and often
do not have electricity.
M. C. Botha, minister of Ban-
tu (black African) education,
says the separate education sys-
tems are equal, since all South
African schools use the same
curricutum and take the same
tests.

When David had open heart surgery
not long ago, he needed six vital
units of blood, type o Neg. All of it
was obtained, processed and pro-
vided by the Red Cross blood center.
We're not the heroes of this
lifesaving story (the six wonderful
blood donors should get the med-
als). But we (and other voluntary
blood centers) do need your con-
tinued support. Blood, you know,
doesn't grow on trees. It comes from
donors. Like you. And we
need more people like
you. Call your Red Cross
or other voluntary blood
center soon. Please.
