Women hurt more

ing their spouses and profession-
als, than any other group in the
work force. Instead, says War-
ren, women depend more on
their neighbors as sources of
help and support.
However, she added, unless a
woman is part of a "high or-
ganization neighborhood" (areas
where there is much interac-
tion among residents) she is
still without sources of assist-
ance.
"BLUE COLLAR and unem-
ployed women in low organiza-
tion neighborhoods have virtu-
ally no one to turn to when un-
dergoing long term stress,"
contends Warren, "and nearly
90 per cent of unemployed wo-
men live in low organization
neighborhoods."
In light of her conclusions,
Warren suggested that "efforts
be made to make the neighbor-
hood more resnonsive to the
needs of the ble collar and un-
employed women, since they de-

pend on this source of support
more than any other."
To achieve this, she proposed
a two part program to speak to
the particular needs of these
women. The program would
combine informal women's dis-
cussion groups with easily ac-
cessible referral agents work-
ing in the neighborhood.
DISCUSSION groups w o u 1 d
enable women to share their
problems and concerns with
other women of the same sta-
fus, said Warren, while referral
agents would serve as resource
persons to link women with the
anpronriate agencies outside of
the neighborhood.
"Policy makers must be
made aware of the severe
threat posed to women by un-
employment," demanded War-
ren. "Traditional studies have
focused on the male as a bread-
winner to the virtual exclusion
of the female. It is time to re-
eamine this unilateral fnocu."

WINDHOEK, South-West Afri-
ca ((P)) - White-ruled South-
West Africa announced plans
yesterday to ease the territory's
racial separation laws in what
may be a trial run for changes
in South Africa itself.
New legislation will allow all
races to use hotels, restaurants
and cafes, if the owners permit,
and order removal of "whites
only" and "nonwhites" signs on
all public buildings.
THE SURPRISE move was
announced by Dirk Mudge, a
member of the ruling Executive
Council, who told the all-white
Legislative Assembly the exist-
ing laws would be changed to
allow this process of develop-
ment to move ahead smoothly
and without friction," Mudge
told the assembly.
"All national groups in South-
West Africa should accept these
decisions with enthusiasm and
responsibility," he said. "Whites
must not accept them with hes-
itation and lack of interest."

Africa to eliminate what is com-
monly known as "petty apart-
heid."
Officials here recently told
visiting reporters that South-
West Africa may be used to test
more liberal policies planned for
South Africa itself. The move
may also reprenent a further
step by South Africa to reach
accord with its black African
neighbors.
The announcement also ap-
peared timed to influence a de-
bate at the United Nations on
the future of the mineral-rich
territory, also known as Nami-
bia.
SOUTH-WEST Africa has been
administered by South Africa
for 55 years under a mandate by
the United Nations. The United
Nations ended the mandate in
1966 and has been trying to get
South Africa out ever since.
Black African nations insist on
the territory's independence.
South Africa has promised to
grant independence as soon as
the territory's 12 major ethnic
groups meet at a conference to
decide South-West Africa's con-

stitutional future. Political ob-
servers in Windhoek say the
conference may take place be-
fore the end of 1975 or very ear-
ly in 1976.
South-West Africa's 850,000 po-
pulation is made up of several
African tribes, mulatto groups
and the ruling minority of 105,-
000 whites.
MUDGE SAID the changes
announced yesterday were bas-
ed on an interim report by a
study group assigned to investi-
gate laws that tend to cause ra-
cial friction.
He said owners of businesses
who decide to cater to all races
will disnlay this on a prominent
sign, while racially discrimina-
tory signs on public buildings
will be removed as quickly as
possible.
Mudee said the Executive
Council was in favor of greater
freedom of movement for Afri-
cans but that "essential" influx
control laws will be retained.
These regulate movement of Af-
ricans from one region to anoth-
er in the territory and South Af-
rican authorities say they are
necessary to avoid overcrowd-
ing in urban areas.
SOUTH-WEST Africa, howev-
er, recently eliminated the hat-
ed "pass" laws which require
Africans to carry a reference
book everywhere they go. The
pass laws are still in effect in
South Africa.
African delegations at the Uni-
ted Nations in New York were
unimpressed by the announced
changes. Sam Nujoma, presi-
dent of the South-West Africa
People's Organization, said:
"What we demand is our inde-
pendence, not a change in apar-
theid."
