  • Description

    Thousands of coloured people filled the stadium at Newlands, Johannesburg, Apr 18, for the official opening of their own Union Festival. They roared their appreciation as girl drum-majorettes marched rhythmically along in procession to the music of a banjo band, followed by a smart parade of boys in kilts.

    In a speech to the crowds, South African Deputy Interior Minister, Mr. P. Botha talked of new bonds of friendship between coloured people and the Government.
