WASHINGTON - Reverend Jesse
Jackson, speaking to an estimated
100,000 demonstrators from the steps of
the Capitol, yesterday challenged the
Reagan administration to "give peace
a chance, give jobs a chance, and give
justice a chance."
"March on, march on, march on," he
urged the crowd.
THE demonstrators, exhausted by
their three-hour march in 90 degree
heat, managed to rally behind Jackson
with chants of "Jesse, Jesse, Jesse."
The protesters marched the two
miles from the Ellipse, a park near the
Washington Monument, to the Capitol.
Several protesters, suffering from
the heat, dropped out of the march.
The sweltering heat brought big
business for soda vendors who charged
$1 for cans of Coca-Cola, despite the
fact that many of the protesters were
boycotting Coca-Cola products. The
demonstrators say Coca-Cola broke an
agreement with Nicaraguan workers to
keep its plant in operation if it turned a
CENTRAL AMERICA was just one
theme brought up during the march.
The crowd, in addition to demanding
no aid to the Contras in Nicaragua,
called for an end to apartheid in South
Africa, and cuts in military spending.
Jackson lauded the protesters, many
college students, and praised actions of
civil disobedience in the protest of
apartheid at schools across the country.
"ON CAMPUSES around the nation,

at Columbia, at Rutgers, at Berkeley
our youth are waking up," said
Jackson. "A long night of slumber has
ceased, giving way to the fight against
"As our youth matures, and they
grow more away from yuppieism, they
will grow towards sacrificing, caring,
sharing, and moral resistance to tyran-
ny and terror," Jackson said.
Saying that it was "time for a
change," Jackson announced that
student leaders at colleges involved in
apartheid demonstrations will con-
verge at Columbia next week in a
challenge for other universities to

engage in a "national student sym-
pathy day" to show support for blacks
in South Africa.
JACKSON compared South African
apartheid with Nazism, and said, "the
ultimate result of a philosophy based on
racial supremacy is genocide."
"Our society is madness," he said.
"child abuse is madness. Drug abuse is
madness. Attempting to overthrow a
government in Central America that we
have diplomatic relations with is mad-
ness, strengthening ties with a new
fascist state of South Africa is madness.
To trade with South Africa is mad-

Dancer seeks fame
as choreographer

Larry Nye waltzes through the Diag

slung over his shoulder, a momento
from his work on the campus produc-
tion of Pippin'.
Yells of "Hi, Bob!" greet the tall,

famous Broadway choreographer Bob
The 23-year-old Nye dreams of
working with Fosse who has
choreographed such musicals as
Cabaret, All that Jazz, and Chicago.
And that dream may become reality.
Even though Nye had little formal
training before he came to the Univer-
sity this year, he has already caught
Fosse's eye.
Nye transferred from Kellogg Com-
munity College in Battle Creek with an
impressive list of nearly 100 plays
which he has either performed in,
directed, or choreographed. Though
some might rest on their past
achievements, Nye is always looking
for other projects.
"When I auditioned here, I met with
the choreographer of the Sophomore
Show and said, 'That's the job I want,'

and the next year I got it," Nye recalls.
Indeed, he coordinated dance
routines not only for last fall's
Sophomore Show of Grease as well as
the Musket production of Pippin. He
also choreographed The Best Little
Whorehouse in Texas for a theater

group in Jackson, Michigan this year.
At present, he spends three hours a
night choreographing West Side Story
for Northwest High School in Detroit.
That job is piled on top of three hours
of rigorous dance classes each day. But
he even finds time now and then to train
Junior Miss contestants and substitute
for graduate student dance instructors
in the music school.
W HAT keeps Nye bopping through
such a demanding routine?
Perhaps it is the fact that he insists
upon having fun while he works. When
he cast performers for Pippin', Nye
said he put more emphasis on a per-
son's pleasant personality than on his

the term "Birthplace" refers to since Reagan gained fame
as an actor.
