Lt 500 students rallied last week
Cross Campus at Yale Univesity
test efforts by the Reagan ad-
ration to cut spending on
lly funded student loans.
akers, who included Yale
dent A. Bartlett Biamatti,
essman Bruce Morrison, and

History Prof. Gaddis Smith, expressed
an unanimous contempt for the gover-
nment's attempt to cut back student
loans in an effort to balance the budget.
Giamatti stressed the need for
students not to appear complacent
when defending educational oppor-
tunity and then related the financial
issue to the ideal of opportunity, noting
that "this country stands for in-
clusiveness, not exclusiveness."
Gaddis Smith, speaking next, ac-
cused the Reagan administration of
"having little knowledge of the past and
no sense of responsibility for the
future."
Congressman Morrison also condem-
ned the loan cuts, receiving loud ap-
plause when he said that "great univer-
sities like Yale should not be populated
only by those people rich enough to pay
their own way.".
The rally drew extensive media
coverage, and organizer Phil Leider
said he was "extremely satisfied" with
the speeches and the turnout. Mel
Powell, another rally organizer, affir-
med that "it is possible to make a dif-
ference." -Yale Daily News
Texas parade erupts
in anti-gay violence
A round-up parade at The University
of Texas at Austin exploded into a
barrage of beer bottles and
firecrackers last week as represen-
tatives of a gay students organization
passed by a private dormitory.
The Gay and Lesbian Student
Association (GLSA) parade entry was
nearing the end of the parade route
when onlookers began lobbing cans and
beer bottles into the street from the
balcony.
Alex Bernal, chairman of the GLSA,
said the group first encoutnered trouble
when attempting to enter the parade.
"As the parade started, people from
otherfloats kept saying, 'get bumper to
bumper. Don't let thim in,' " Bernal
said.
Bernal said the only injury suffered
in the melee was by one of the car's
riders, who was hit in the head by a
beer bottle, although the injury
required no medical treatment.
"This is the worst display of anti-gay
and lesbian violence I have ever seen,"
Bernal said. No arrests or fines were
reported.

A police spokesman said the three blacks detained without charge, all
from the multiracial United Democratic Front, were Patrick Lekota, public-
ity secretary; Popo Molefe, the general secretary, and Moses Chikane, a
Front official in Johannesburg's Transvaal province. He said they were un-
der investigation in connection with cases of unrest near Johannesburg eight
months ago.
Police reported dozens of incidents of stone-throwing and arson by crowds
near Johannesburg in the north, Bloemfontein in the center of the country
and Port Elizabeth in the south. Riot police used tear gas, rubber bullets and
shotguns to scatter hundreds of black youths, but reported no injuries.
The spokesman at national police headquarters in Pretoria said 482 teen-
age boys and girls were arrested in Sebokeng, near Johannesburg, for
holding an illegal meeting in a school to protest rent increases for gover-
nment housing. Most paid fines and were released, he said, speaking on con-
dition he not be identified.
First Ladies meet for summit
WASHINGTON-Nancy Reagan is bringing together the wives of
prime ministers and presidents from around the world for the White House's
first "first ladies summit" on drug abuse this week.
"It's very historic-a major undertaking," said James Rosebush, the Fir-
st Lady's chief of staff and organizer of the event. "This is the first time in
history there has ever been a first ladies' summit."
Not since the signing of the Panama Canal treaties under the Carter ad-
ministration have so many representatives of foreign governments been at
the White House at once, Rosebush said.
About 17 women-representing nations ranging from Mexico to the tiny
island nation of Mauritius-will attend the two-day conference, which begins
today at the White House.
President Reagan will drop by to greet the conference as it opens. Today,
the women fly to Atlanta, where they will attend another conference spon-
sored by the Parents Resource Institute for Drug Education, or PRIDE, an
international organization aimed at fighting drug abuse.
Congress set for confrontation
with Reagan over Contra aid
WASHINGTON-Senate Democrats abandoned all efforts at compromise
yesterday and Congress headed for a confrontation with President Reagan
on whether to release $14 million in aid to the Contra guerrillas battling the
leftist Sandinista government in Nicaragua.
Debate opened in the House and Senate on an issue which has bitterly
divided members of both political parties and invoked painful memories
from the early days of the Vietnam War.
As votes approached in both houses, Vice President George Bush and
Secretary of State George Shultz met with Senate Republicans who emerged
almost completely unified behind the president's Contra aid proposal.
Sen. Richard Lugar, (R-Ind), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee, predicted Reagan would win in the Republican-controlled
Senate. But defeat for tlie president's plan in the Democrat-controlled House
was virtually assured.
Court pernits alcohol price ads
LANSING-The Michigan Court of Appeals yesterday backed Attorney
General Frank Kelley in his fight to legalize beer and wine price advertising
in Michigan.
Retailers may resume advertising in 21 days unless critics of the practice
obtain an order blocking the appeals court decision.
The long-awaited decision was a victory for Kelley and a setback for the
Michigan Beer and Wine Wholesalers Association, which strongly opposes
price advertising.
"The court of appeals made the right decision," Kelley said. "Michigan
citizens have a right to know what retailers are charging for beer and wine."
Aides predicted resumed advertising will bring down prices.
Patrick Laughlin said his wholesalers association is "disappointed (and)
confused" by the decision, noting it comes in the face of a national
movement toward restricting the promotion of alcoholic beverages.
"We're trying to be a responsible industry,'trying to police ourselves, yet
we're gettin clobbered from both sides."
Coca-Cola to sweeten soft drink
NEW YORK-Coca-Cola, the world's No. 1 consumer product, said
yesterday it was changing its secret recipe for a sweeter taste in a move
company officials said would make the familiar soft drink even better.
Officials for No. 2 soft drink Pepsi-Cola countered its long-time com-
petitors' hoopla with a full-page advertisement in the New York Times
saying Coke is "withdrawing their product from the marketplace, and is
reformulating brand Coke to be 'more like Pepsi.'
"After 87 years of going at it eyeball to eyeball, the other guy just
blinked."
Every day, 270 million servings of regular Coke are sold around the world.
Officials for Coca-Cola, a symbol of American good living that has held its
spot as the world's most popular soft drink for almost a century, explained
the sudden change was an effort to make "the best even better."
