Anti-government riots
rock Manila, 10 dead

.low,

MANILA, Philippines (AP) - The
bloodiest anti-government rioting in
President Ferdinand Marcos' 18-year
rule rocked Manila yesterday, leaving
at least 10 people dead and 200 injured,
by official count.
The violence exploded after a
peaceful demonstration by about
500,000 Filipinos in front of Manila's
central post office exactly one month
after the assassination of Marcos' chief
political rival, Benigno Aquino.
STREET FIRES and rallies con-
tinued late into the night in both poor
and wealthy Manila neighborhoods, but
the worst violence was on Jmendiola
Bridge leading to Marcos' palatial
residence.
Nearly 1,000 youths shouting "Ninoy,
Ninoy," Aquino 's nickname, threw
stones and charged police lines, set
afire two buses and a dredging crane
and threw homemade bombs into police
ranks.
Police at first retreated but then
fought back with clubs and gunfire,
clearing the rioters and thousands of
other students off streets in the univer-
sity district, about a half-mile from the
palace.
THE DEAD INCLUDED two
firemen, two marines and six civilians,
the government said. It said at least 50
riot troops were injured, including a
brigadier general hit by shrapnel from
a bomb.

Marcos went on national television
during the rally to say he was more
saddened than angered by opposition
criticism. His palace later issued an
appeal for calm and promised con-
tinued dialogue and "maximum
tolerance" in dealing with demon-
strators.
At the height of the rioting, youths
posted a sign reading "Ninoy, you are
not alone. We are with you." It was
signed UNIDO for the United
Nationalist Democratic Organization,
which organized the Manila rally and
others throughout the country.
THE OPPOSITION called it a "Day
of National Sorrow," but for Marcos it
was officially "Thanksgiving Day," the
11th anniversary of his declaration of
martial law which lasted eight years.
Schools had been dismissed for the ob-

servance.
In the modern suburb of Makati,
Manila's business hub, thousands of of-
fice workers poured into the streets for
the third time in a week to join the call
for Marcos' resignation.
Aquino's widow, Corazon, told the
post office rally, "I will not allow fear to
top me. Regardless of cost, I will defend
freeddm."
Demonstrators burned effigies of
Marcos and President Reagan who is
scheduled to visit Manila in November.
Opposition leaders have urged him not
to come.

AIDS: Who
(Continued from Page 1)
isn't increasing dramatically, but
'We're seeing an increase in the num-
ber of pre-AIDS cases . . . as more
people come in for check-ups.',
Nationally, 2,200 cases have been
diagnosed since 1978.
Homosexual men account for 95 per-
cent of the cases, said Fisher.
Other victims include intravaneous
drug users, hemophiliacs blood tran-
splant patients, Haitians, and , to a
lesser extent, women and children.
THE POOL OF victims suggests the
disease is transmitted through semen
or blood.
AIDS is most prevalent among "fast
lane homosexuals whose lifestyle is
characterized by multiple sexual en-
counters, anal activity, and use of
drugs," Fisher said.
Hemophiliacs and blood transfer
patients probably pick up the disease
from blood donors who become AIDS
victims. Children of women who con-
tract AIDS may show symptoms of the
disease before, or shortly after, birth.
In order to be confirmed an AIDS vic-
tim, Fisher said the person must con-
tract one of several forms of cancer and
infection. Many may suffer from a m
milder form of the disease, called pre-

AIDS. The symptoms of both include
fever, weight loss, fatigue, swollen
glands, cough, shortness of breath,
shingles, leg pains, and mouth
soreness.
"Unfortunately the symptoms. are
common to any infectious disease, and
most of us have experienced one or the
other in the past year," Fisher said.
"The thing to remember is the per-
sistence of the symptoms. Normally
they will disapper in a few days to two
weeks, but if they persist, one ought to
consult a physician."
Two theories are circulating about
the cause of AIDS. One holds that there
is a virus that kills antibody-producing
lymphocytes in the blood; the other
claims that the immune system is sim-
ply overwhelmed by a barrage of infec-
tions.
