The World

South Africa’s two major sporting bodies called for an end to the country’s apartheid policies. The South African Sports Federation and the South African National Olympic Committee also called for accelerated talks to find a constitutional solution giving everyone the right to vote in a system acceptable to all races. In another move toward conciliation by a major South African institution, the conservative, Afrikaner-dominated Dutch Reformed Church held an interracial rally in Pretoria. A speaker urged the 10,000 people assembled “to ask God to help us stop blood and tears.”
