By the Associated Negro Tress
LONDON—South African seg-

last week, as all offense against
human rights and "the divine
law as set forth In the Bible."
The British Council of
Churches — a fellowship com-
posed of most Christian denom-
inations in Britain—unanimous-
ly approved the resolution con-
demning South Africa.
South Africa's Native Re-
settlement act was assailed by
tlie churchmen as well as the
Bantu Education act. The coun-
cil said the acts "will insure
the mental, as well as the phys-
ical segregation" of Negroes
and deny them any place in the
white community above the lev-

No All-Negro Units Now
Exist in Military Services
By the Associated Negro Press < #
WASHINGTON—All-Negro units have been abolished within
the military, and integration has been carried out ahead of
schedule without any "untoward incidents," a Defense depart-

A "miked increase in over-all combat effectiveness" and
economies in manpower, material, and money have been the
practical results the report said.
The statement said the program
«f integration "has advanced more
rapidly than had been considered
possible in some quarters."
"There are no longer any nll-Ne-
gro units in the services," the report
added. The "few" army units still
carrying racial designations in the
lecords Include "a considerable pu»-
portion of non-Negro personnel"
and where a small unit may be
found containing only Negro per-
sonnel, the condition Is tradXuit."
The report stated that one of the
last "formal barriers" to integra-
tion was shattered last March when

maintaining separate recruitment of
Negroes as stewards.
It was pointed out that imple-

partment "lags far behind" the

In another field, the report said,
"much remains to be done" to Im-
