LOS ANGELES (AP) - Gay
leaders and man Republican
politicians are criticizing the state's
GOP chairman for his remark that
homosexuals should become
heterosexuals "for their own best in-
terests" and to avoid AIDS.
-"It's truly absurd," said Duke
Comegys, president of the board of.
the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian
Community Services Center and a
registered Republican. "It would in-
troduce the virus into a whole new
population that previously has not
been exposed, the heterosexual
GOP chairman Mike Antonovich
has refused to elaborate on his
remarks on a weekend television
show, when he said his plan would
reduce the number of acquired im-
mune deficiency syndrome cases in
the United States.
State Rep. Bobbi Fiedler of Nor-
thridge, a Republican who like An-
tonovich is expected to run for
Democrat Alan - Cranston's Senate
seat in 1986, added: "It's really unfor-
tunate that he knows so little about
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - It looks,
smells, and tastes something like pork
sausage, but the critter it's made
from never squealed or oinked, never
had ears or a curly tail or even feet,
and didn't grow up in a litter.
This sausage is made of quite a dif-
ferent Southern delicacy - catfish.
And "cat dogs" and "corn cats" and
other catfish products are in the plan-
Later this month, consumers here
and in Dallas will get a chance to taste
catfish sausage when Delta Industries
Inc. stocks the shelves of a handful of
Jitney Jungle and Kroger stores to
test market the frozen patties, Delta
President Thomas Slough said
The sausage tastes something like
its pork competitor, but is lower in
cholesterol, fat and calories, he said.
It will be sold in 12-ounce, eight-patty
packages under the brand name
Leroy's and will cost about the same
as high-grade pork sausage.
Slough said Delta Industries is
developing 15 to 20 catfish food
products it hopes will replace conven-
tional ingredients in some foods.
Illegal alien wins lottery
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - An illegal
alien from Mexico who won $2 million
in the California Lottery will be able
to collect his winnings, but he'll have to
leave the country or risk deportation,
officials said yesterday.
Jose Caballero, 24, said he told lot-
tery officials he was in the country
illegally before he spun the wheel for
the top prize on Monday in Los
"THEY SAID is was no problem,"
he said in Spanish after returning to
San Jose, where he lives with
relatives who are American citizens.
"They said, 'You paid a dollar for
that ticket. You got a winning num-
Lottery Director Mark Michalko
said Caballero will be awarded full in-
stallments of his prize - $100,000 a
year for 20 years - less withholding
for federal income tax.
"People are able to come in from
any place in the world, win the lottery,
and we pay them," Michalko said.
Lottery officials will let the Im-
migration and Naturalization Service
and the Internal Rlevenue Service
determine Caballero's citizenship
status and tax withholding amount,

of Chicago researchers find
'Ecstasy' damages brain cells
WASHINGTON (UPI) - University
Of, Chicago researchers have found
direct evidence the recreational drug
known as "Ecstasy," which was
outlawed this summer, damages
brain cells, but only after repeated
use, the university said Monday.
Two researchers submitted a paper
to the U.S. .Drug Enforcement Ad-
ministration on experiments showing
rats given one dose of the drug MDMA
suffered few effects, but those given
eight doses suffered damage to their
lrain's serotonin metabolism.
SEROTONIN is a neurotransmitter
involved in regulation of sleep, mood,
pain perception, sexuality,
aggressiveness, and other functions.
The researchers said repeated in-
* ections of MDMA appeared to cause
*more damage than a closely related
drug, MDA, which was already illegal
when the DEA outlawed "Ecstasy" in
"We conclude from these results
that a single injection of MDMA may
not be as toxic as MDA, but chronic
treatment with MDMA appears at this
point to be more toxic than MDA,"
ewis Seiden and Charles Schuster
*wrote in a report to the drug agency.
SEIDEN, a neurobiochemist, is a
professor of pharmacological and
physiological sciences. Schuster is
director of the university's drug abuse
The two researchers, who were
unavailable for comment Monday, did
not mention how close a comparison
ould be made between the injections
given to the rats and pills taken by
people, nor was it certain what effect
the brain cell damage would have on
