Description SAED:SOCIAL:CHILDREN:DRUM APRIL 1960 Ð Unmarried Mothers and their babies Ð She took her man to court Ð Letty Moema has to live with her parents in the Pretoria district because her man got tired of putting his hand in his pockets when a third baby arrived. Letty got a court ruling against him. She has got to go to Joburg to fetch the money Ð and itÕs not always there. The basic trouble is a political one, say some folk interviewed by a Drum reporter. All tied up with basic social conditions and no sex education. And in the meantime more and more kids have to start out life without even the minimum of a chance.
