Resolutions adopted by the Convocation of Canterbury ex pressed "deep sympathy with the Church cf the Province of South African and all those other churches now engaged in struggling to preserve the in violate right of members of Christian churches to worship together without distinction of race or color." It assured South African bishops of the constant support and prayers of the Canterbury bishops in oppos ing the Native Laws Amend ment Bill which, among other things, prohibites Negroes from attending services at churches in white communities without specific permission from the Minister of Native Affairs. The resolution also voiced opposi tion to a bill providing for separate university education of natives and whites. Almost identical action was taken by the Convocation of York. The Most Rev. and Rt.
