(South Africa) At meeting of South African Institution for Race Relations in Johannesburg, members vote condemnation of government's crackdown on blacks in recent days. There is no sign that government knows of vote, or cares. Prime Min. Vorster opens campaign for reelection in November; defends government actions. [VORSTER - says issue isn't future of South Africa or law and order, but saving lives and protecting property.] Other reactions noted; newspaper editor Donald Woods was detained just before departure for American visit and is banned. Also banned is "The World" newspaper, along with other papers and black orgs.
