Malan Dead of Stroke;
South African Leader
CAPETOWN. Feb. 7 (AP).—
Dr. Daniel F. Malan. author of
much of South Africa’s racial
policy, died today after suffer
ing a stroke.
The 84-year-old former edi
i tor and clergyman, who was
the nation's Prime Minister
from 1948 to 1954, defied world
wide condemnation to enforce a
policy of apartheid that he in
sisted was the traditional pol
icy of South Africa since the
first Dutch settlers arrived in
Capetown.
Dr. Malan died peacefully in
the presence of his wife and
members of his family. He re
tired as Prime Minister in 1954
after leading the National party
to victory in 1948 and 1953
The party still controls the
South African government.
Dr. Malan. as the dominat
ing voice for Afrikaner nation
alism, was a controversial figure
during his long political career.
Critics accused him at times of
attempting to become a dicta
tor after he rose to power in
1948.
Among legislation he pushed
through Parliament after be
coming Prime Minister were
tne suppression of communism
act which resulted in the dis
solution of the Communist
Party, the group areas act
providing for residential seg
regation of races, the immoral
ity amendment act prohibiting
sexual relations between whites
and nonwhites, and the Bantu
|act which aimed at returning
Africans to the tribal rule of
their ancestors.

Gone, dear Mother, gone forever,
How I miss your smiling face;
But you’ve left me to remember.
None on earth can take your place
A happy home we once enjoyed.
How sweet the memories still:
But death has left a loneliness
The world can never fill.
What would I not give to clasp your
hand.
Your happy face to see;
To hear your voice, to see your
smile.
That meant so much to me
The rolling stream of life rolls on.
But still the vacant chair
Recalls the love, the voice, the smile
of you, dear Mom.
Who once sat there.
To those who have a mother.
Tend her with love and care.
For you'll never know her value
Till you’ve seen her vacant chair.

DR. DANIEL F. MALAN
the dominating voice of Afri
kaner nationalism.
He opposed South Africa's
entry into the Second World
War and in 1942 moved unsuc
cessfully in Parliament to with
draw the nation from the
conflict.
In attempting to define
apartheid. Dr. Malan said that
white South Africans had main
tained their racial identity
among overwhelming majority
nonwhites for 200 years and
were not prepared to surrender
it.
Color Consciousness Stressed
He said the color conscious
ness of South Africa arose from
the contrast between, two ir
reconcilable ways of life—those
of barbarism and civilization,
of heathenism and Christianity.
“There is no p&rallel for the
South African record of non
extermination, nonmiscegena
tion and nonassimilation but of
preaching practicing Christian
ity with the retention of racial
identity and mutual respect,"
he said.
Apartheid, he said, aimed at
settling Africans in their own
reserves, training them to de
velop these areas industrially
and agriculturally, giving Afri
cans self-rule under their tradi
tional tribal customs by replac
ing all white officials and trad
ers in the reserves with Afri-'
cans. He called It a separate
racial development.
Never Smoked or Drank
Dr. Malan never smoked or
drank strong liquor and his
whole career was shaped by the
stern Ideals of his forefathers.
He was a scholarly religious
man who invariably dressed in
dark suits.
Born on May 22, 1874 at Rie
beck West in Cape Province, Dr.
Malan in his youth was a
neighbor of another famed
South African Prime Minister.
Jan Christian Smuts. Dr.
Smuts, who was four years
older, once taught Dr. Malan
in Sunday school.
Dr. Malan studied theology
at Utrecht University and on
returning to South Africa en- |
tered the ministry of the Dutch
Reformed Church. After
preaching nearly 10 years he
became chief editor of Die
Burger in Capetown, the South
African Nationalist newspaper,
and later leader of the Na
tional Party in Cape Province.
In 1918 he was elected to Par
liament.
He married twice. His first
wife died in 1930 and in 1937
he married Miss Maria Ann
Louw, a librarian. He had two
sons by his first marriage.
Soon after Dr. Malan became
Prime Minister he and his sec
ond wife adopted a German
girl.

Bernard Reid Tolson, 'Mayor'

Bernard Reid Tolson. who as
“mayor” of Union Station pre
sided over railroad traffic in
and out of Washington for 23
years, died yesterday of a heart
attack at his home, 6911 Sixth
street N.W.
Mr. Tolson spent 48 of his
75 years in the railroad busi
ness. From 1926 until his re
tirement 10 years ago, he was
manager of the Washington
Terminal Co.
His job made him responsible
for the utilities, fire, police and
health protection at Union Sta
tion and a sort of general man
ager for all railroads using it.
The way he performed it
brought him the national se
curity and war finance awards
from the Government during
World War 11. It also brought
him a reputation as a genial,
tactful man whose office door
was never closed to a traveler
who needed help.
Accidental Affection
A lifelong resident of Wash
ington, Mr. Tolson acquired his
affection for railroading acci
dentally. In 1901 he needed
money to pay his way through
school and he took a job as a
clerk in the trainmaster’s of
fice of the Pennsylvania Rail
road.
He continued his education
and when he finished it he had
attended the Corcoran Scien
tific School. Columbian Univer
sity and obtained a law degree
from the old National Univer
sity. He also was licensed to
practice before the Supreme
Court and the District Court
of Appeals.
But as Mr. Tolson once, put
it, “There is something so fas
cinating about railroading that
once it gets hold of you, it’s
pretty hard to pass it by.”
While studying he kept his
post with the Pennsylvania
Railroad and in 1907 he became
chief clerk for the Washington
Terminal Co.
During his career, Mr. Tolson
