militia position in Beirut
BEIRUT, Lebanon - The U.S. Navy unleashed its firepower in Lebanon
for the first time yesterday, destroying a Druse militia battery that shelled
Beirut airport in violation of a truce pledge while two Marine generals were
inspecting Marine positions.
No casualties were reported at the airport, where four Marines have been
killed and 28 wounded since late last month. But police said 52 Lebanese
were killed and 14 wounded in fierce Christian-Druse fighting in the moun-
tains overlooking the airport.
The Druse, in a statement issued by the Progressive Socialist Party,
claimed Lebanese troops and Christian Phalange and militiamen burned
down a Druse religious shrine in Ebey, 7% miles southeast of Beirut and
"massacred" 40 men, women and children who had taken refuge there.
Rebels attack Managua airport
MANAGUA, Nicaragua - Two light planes piloted by rebel exiles rocketed
Managua airport and the area around the Nicaraguan foreign minister's
home yesterday, causing heavy damage at the airfield and wounding two
soldiers, officials said.
Army spokesman Commander Roberto Sanchez said anti-aircraft gunners
at the airport downed one of the planes, a propeller-driven Cessna 402, which
crashed at the base of the control tower, killing the pilot and co-pilot.
Two U.S. senators scheduled to land in Managua had to be put in a holding
pattern because of the rocketing and later flew to Honduras.
Sanchez identified the pilots of the planes that attacked Managua as
Agustin Roman, a Nicaraguan who once worked for the national airline
Aeronica, and Sebastian Muller, an air force deserter.

SANTIAGO, Chile - Police battled hundreds of demonstrators in Santiago
yesterday during a "Day of National Protest" against the military regime of
President Augusto Pinochet.
The demonstrators, mostly university students, threw rocks and shouted
"He's going to fall, he's going to fall."
Scores of people were arrested, including copper workers union president
Rodolfo Seguel and former Senator Patricio Aylwin, both affiliated with the
five-party Democratic Alliance that called the protest, according to repor-
ters on the scene.
Witnesses said policemen beat Aylwin as he watched a rally and put him
on a police bus. Reporters saw many marchers pulled by the neck or the hair
onto police buses, thrown to the ground and stomped on.
The day of protest was the fifth in as many months of rising unrest over an
economic recession and Pinochet's authoritarian rule.
Communists and other leftist groups have called for street demonstrations
to last through Sunday, the 10th anniversary of the bloody coup that over-
threw Marxist President Salvador Allende and brought Pinochet to power.
Heterosexual contact could be
linked to AIDS, report finds
CHICAGO - AIDS, a deadly disease spreading fear among male homo-
sexuals, may also be spread by intimate heterosexual contact, doctors
Groups at highest risk for contracting acquired immune deficiency syn-
drome, a breakdown of the body's immune system, are male homosexuals,
intravenous drug users, hemophiliacs and Haitians.
"This mode of sexual transmission may provide a vector for the spread of
AIDS to low-risk populations," said Drs. Arthur Pitchenick and Margaret
Fischl of the University of Miami and Dr. Thomas Spira of Atlanta's Center
for Disease Control.
They reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association on two
AIDS patients not among the high-risk groups.
One was a 30-year-old black woman, the wife of an intravenous drug user,
who showed no symptoms of AIDS. The other was a 30-year-old white man
who had no predisposition to AIDS except for minimal contact with a
homosexual brother. Neither of their high-risk relatives suffered from AIDS.
St Louis teachers told to work
ST. LOUIS - A federal judge yesterday ordered 3,800 teachers and
other school workers to end the biggest of the nation's current teacher
strikes because it was disrupting a court-approved desegregation plan.
U.S. District Judge Stephen Limbaugh's order directed the strikers to get
back to work immediately, but union officials declined to respond until they
had been served with the order.
Copies were being mailed yesterday to each striking teacher and school
worker. Union President Evelyn Battle White said she was sure the teachers
would stay at their picket lines at least until they were served notice of the
temporary restraining order.
The judge set a Friday afternoon hearing on whether to continue his direc-
About 2,700 teachers and 1,000 support workers have been on strike over
wages and class size since Wednesday, which was the first day of school and
the first day of a voluntary busing program. The plan is designed to bring
about 550 suburban students to 11 inner-city "magnet" schools that attract
students by offering special courses.
St. Louis schools remained open Wednesday and yesterday with the help of
about 500 administrators and volunteers, but officials conceded that most of
the effort was aimed at keeping order, and there was little teaching.
