Skippers protest boat seizures

KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) - About 200
skippers of boats seized by the Coast
Guard for ferrying Cuban refugees to
America paraded noisily through Key
West yesterday, protesting the gover-
nment's action as a stab in the back and
demanding the return of their vessels.
The seamen included shrimpers who
claim they have been deprived of their
livelihood as a result of the seizures.
MEANWHILE, THERE were reports
of apparent suicide attempts among
refugees. And at resettlement camps in
Arkansas and Northwest Florida,
authorities worked to maintain calm af-

escape attempts by Cubans impatient-

Eight boats arrived here by midday
yesterday with 1,104 refugees, bringing
the five-week total to 86,194 Cubans.
As many as 1,000 boats are under
seizure orders. Most were confiscated
since President Carter's May 15
declaration that the boatlift must end.
Carter offered to replace it with a U.S.
air or sea bridge, but the Cuban gover-
nment hasn't accepted the offer.

(AP)-White gunmen in a van killed
three mixed-race youths and injured
two others yesterday during a demon-
stration in which a crowd threw stones
at the vehicle in Elsies River Township
near Cape Town, the South African
Press Association claimed.
Police Minister Louis LeGrange said
police shot two of the youths. Details
were not availble. The press
association said the dead youths were
13 or 14 years old.
POLICE HAVE arrested at least
1,200 persons in the white minority

weeks of unrest in schools and fac-
tories, the press association said.
The crackdown has intensified as the
June 16 anniversary of the 1976 Soweto
riots draw nearer, The riots in the black
township outside Johannesburg started
as a protest against the education
policy and developed into a nationwide
rebellion against inferior status of non-
whites in all aspects of life. More than
600 blacks died in the seven-month
The press agency said at least 65
people have been detained since Sun-
day. Arrests continued yesterday in
Natal and Cape provinces as the gover-
nment tried to still a growing clamor
for more equality among races in
schools and jobs. Fifty-three of those
arrested this week were clergymen and
clergywomen who had mrched in
downtown Johannesburg Monday to
demand the release of a minister
arrested because of his support for a
school boycott.

telegram to Prime Miniter P.W. Bths
complaining that mass arrests "are
fanning flames of discontent."
