Burly and amiable, Mr Burger says: "I would like to devote my whole life to Atlantis...there is no bigger job satisfaction. But then my job will probably be filled by a Coloured man eventually."

Baptisms at Princess Vlei, Grassy Park, Cape Town
Getting your clothes wet is a small price to pay for cleansing your soul in the waters of the vlei. These members of the Assembly of God, Parkwood Estate, were among the hundreds of people who gathered at the vlei for religious services and baptism rites.

Baptisms at Princess Vlei, Grassy Park, Cape Town
"This is what John the Baptist used to do", the short, intense man standing in the waist-deep water of Princess Vlei cried in an impassioned voice. He added: "There is no more John the Baptist, but Archbishop slingers is here." Handing his long white cross to a white-coated assistant, he turned toward a group of faithful follows shivering in the water around him. The World Wide Soul Clinic Crusade was about to baptise a new batch of converts. A long warm-up on shore, including fervent confessions by mean and women who said they had led lives of sin and then found Jesus, rocking to the tune of a five-piece jazz band, and a sermon by the ebullient Mr Slingers had preceded the dunkings. The confessors and band were aided by two large loud-speakers. When the weather is inclement, or transport to the vlei cant be arranged, ceremonies are performed in a bathtub in the movement's church. Weekend Argus was welcomed to the ceremony because "more people read the newspaper than the Bible, so they will help us spread the word," according to Mr Slingers. He blessed the cameras, film and photographer. As the jazz band blares its rollicking rhythms the members of the congregation clap, shout, dance, clasp hands, and raise faces and voices headwards in joyful thanksgiving. Tears run down the face of an old woman. Another smiles and nods to those about her. Occasionally, moved by her spirit of the music and joy around him, a man leaps in front of the crowd. When it is over, and all is quiet, there is an air like a simmering cauldron as happiness and peace of mind mingle and bubble in the atmosphere.

Barbed-wire in the beer hall to prevent meetings, Cape Town
Barbed-wire coils a metre high have been placed inside Jubulala Hall, a disused beerhall in Nyanga East, preventing residents from holding meetings to protest against orders to demolish backyard shacks. Residents committee meetings planned for Saturday and last night had to be cancelled because the wire filled the hall and blocked its entrances. Mr G.N. Lawrence, the Western Cape Development Board's director of labour and housing, today confirmed that the board had put the wire in the Jubulala Hall to prevent "illegal use" of the building.
