  • Description

    In Durban's busy
    native market area July 1, women agitators with gesticulations and threats
    barred their menfolk from entering the beer halls to quench their thirst.

    Police patrolled the area to help cool passions. They arrested troublemakers,
    drove them to gaol for a court hearing.

    Next day, womenfolk continued to picket the beer halls. The men hesitated
    sporting, then retreated. Most beer halls were empty because of the women's
    blockade.

    The boycott came as the beer halls reopened for the first time for ten days,
    after head-cracking riots. Visiting the beer halls with police during his stay
    in South Africa is Mr. David A. McCandless, Director of the Southern Police
    Institute, Louisville University, Kentucky, USA.
