Mgojo and Methodist Bishop Stanley Mogoba. "Every Sunday we (political prisoners) were visited by priests ... they made us realize that however difficult the situ- ation was, one day we would return," Mandela said. Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu had congrega- tion members waving their arms and saying, "We are the rainbow people of God; we are free, all of us, black and white together." In Pretoria, South Africa, a statement from the Southern African Catholic Bishops' Con- ference said "the generous con- ceding of defeat" by outgoing South African President Fred- "equally magnanimous (vic- tory) speech" by Mandela May 2 "have set an example for all South Africans to reach beyond themselves and extend a hand of friendship and cooperation to all others, regardless of their political affiliations or leanings." "The challenges facing South Africa in having to overcome the legacy of apartheid are .of such magnitude that the good will and cooperation of each and every South African is crit- ical for the future good of our country," the bishops said. The conference "rejoices with the people of South Africa on at last having attained their political freedom." The interim constitution, the new flag and national anthem, as well as the elections "have all served to free South Africans, black and white, from the oppression and slavery of centuries of discrimi- nation and division." "The wonderful participation of South Africans of all ages, persuasions in the elections was in itself an extraordinary sign of reconciliation and of God's working in and through people," the bishops said. They commended the newly elected politicians for pledging to work for the good of all "We appeal to those parties who have not done well in the elections as well as to those who stayed out of the elections to examine in what ways they, too, can help build a new South Africa," they said. Illinois legislators hear high school students on drunk driving ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (CNS) -- Who says high school students can't make a differ- ence in government? Eleven who attend St. Viator High School in Arlington Heights saw their efforts pay off when the bill for which they had lobbied passed the Illinois Senate on a unanimous vote April 21. But what really makes the students' actions unusual is what they lobbied for: tougher penalties for those under 21 who are caught drinking and driving -- a stand that has not won them popularity contests at their own school. "We got a lot of comments from people saying we should mind our own business," said 17-year-old Theresa Warchol, a senior. "But it is my business if they choose to drink and drive, for they could kill one of my friends." Miss Warchol belongs to Lions Living Free, the school's 2-year- old substance abuse awareness group. It began sev- eral years ago as a chapter of Students Against Drunk Driv- ing, known as SADD. z Historic St. Boniface Summer Social 418 N.
