2 policemen killed
in South Africa

sA
L

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa
(AP) - Two policemen were shot
dead yesterday and black mobs bur-
ned three blacks to death after
dousing them with gasoline, police
reported.
A Port Elizabeth court lifted a ban-
ning order on a black rights activist,
its second such action in four days.
HENRY Fazzie, regional vice
president of the anti-apartheid United
Democratic Front, said after the one-
minute court session that the gover-
nment might impose new restrictions
on him, but, "It's all irrelevant. I
don't recognize banning orders in any
form."
A black consumer boycott of white-
owned stores was in its second day in
Pretoria. A two-day general strike of
black workers had a limited effect in a
major industrial area south of Johan-
nesburg.
Organizers of the protests sought to
lower rents in government housing,
release of detained community
leaders and removal of soldiers from
black townships.
THE TWO policemen, one white and
one black, were shot to death in

separate incidents at the Crossroads
black shantytown near Cape Town.
Police said the white constable,
suspended in a drug-dealing inquiry,
was shot and his body covered with
garbage and burned on a road yester-
day morning.
Several hours later, shooting and
burning of vehicles started in the
area, and police said a sniper killed a
black officer with a bullet in the head.
Police said they killed an armed
African National Congress guerrilla
Monday in Katlehong, a black town-
ship east of Johannesburg, after he
charged at officers with a hand
grenade.
A police statement said policemen
also killed one of two black men found
with gasoline bombs Monday night in
a liquor store near Port Elizabeth.
National police headquarters in
Pretoria said a crowd at Sondagsfon-
tein in northern Transvaal province
drenched a black man and woman
with gasoline and set them ablaze.
Another black man was killed in
similar fashion in Soweto, the huge
black township outside Johannesburg,
the report said.

Khadafy may benefit
-from Libyan conflict

(Continued from Page 1)
Political Science Prof. Robert
Powell, an expert in national security
affairs, said he could not be sure
about the Reagan administration's
motives, but he "wouldn't be sur-
prised if (the administration) were
trying to provoke a fight."
The local experts warned that the
dispute may have negative reper-
cussions for American international
prestige.
"If we want to cut Khadafy down to
size it may not work at all, it may.
enhance his reputation in Libya and in
the third world in general," Taylor
said.
Weaker nations don't like to see
their counterparts pushed around by a
superpower like the United States, he
added. "I don't think Khadafy has
that many friends in the world... but
the United States may look like a
bully."
KHADAFY will prove the main
beneficiary from the incident, said
Dennis Sullivan, a political science
graduate student. "This just enhances
his status in the Arab World,"
Sullivan said.
"Arab solidarity is nothing to be
taken lightly when an Arab power is
attacked, even though many of these
countries have great disdain for
Khadafy," said Sullivan. These coun-
tries have a "knee-jerk reaction of
solidarity to anything threatening to
an Arab power."
Those questioned also expressed
concern about possible increases in
Libyan terrorism.
"THE ONLY way we could stop
terrorism would be to escalate it to a
full scale war," said Sullivan. If
anything, these incidents are going to
promote him and others like him to
increase their terrorism, to retaliate
in kind. This policiy will only feed
the flames of terrorism," he added.
Powell agreed, saying he is "con-

Aquin o acquires dictatorial powers

Police get
tough on
Spring
Break funt
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (UPI)
-Angry college students say over-
zealous police officers are"dragging
them in by the bucketful" and ruining
their Spring Break fun, but police said
yesterday the tougher stance has cut
down on alcohol-related injuries.
Fort Lauderdale police patrolling
the' two miles of beach known as The
Strip have arrested 1,779 people since
Spring Break began Feb. 21.
"THEY'RE dragging them in by
the bucketful. They're just picking
them up right and left," said Brendan
O'Grady, a student from Syracuse,
N.Y., who said he and three friends
were "leaving for Key West" after
paying a $25 fine for disorderly con-
duct.
Police spokesman Ott Cefkin said 40
to 40 percent of the arrests are for
violations of a new open container law
prohibiting drinking on the beach and
in the streets around The Strip.
"The consequence is a lot less
drinking," Cefkin said. "That's where
most injuries come from. People get
blasted by beer, fall off walls, crack
their heads open."
Cefkin said an Athens, Ohio, high
school student who had been drinking
tequila suffered "a few bruises" in a
fall from a hotel balcony Monday
night. John Ellis, 17, was treated and
released at North Beach Community
Hospital.
Ellis was drinking the Mexican
liquor with a group of friends and lost
his balance when he leaned over the
second-floor balcony at Fort Lauder-
dale's Birch Patio Apartments,
Cefkin said.
Five students on Spring Break in
Florida have died this year, four of
them from falls off hotel balconies,
Cefkin said.
But some students say the police
are cracking down too hard.
Bill Browder and Kevin Smith,
students at the University of Georgia,
said police are prodding pedestrians
along The Strip and ordering them not
to loiter.

cerned that there will be increased
terrorist activity as a result of the
conflict. "Libya has the physical
capability to increase terrorism.
Terrorism is cheap," he said.
According to United Press Inter-
national reports Khadafy had pledged
earlier to retaliate against any attack
with terrorist missions against "Main
Street America." United States
diplomatic missions world-wide have
been on extra security since Satur-
day, when the American fleet moved
into position off the Gulf.
SULLIVAN questioned the level of
American activity in the area. "I
don't think Libya warrants all this at-
tention," lie said. "Khadafy has
always been a pest, he'll always be a
pest... but the more attention we pay
to him the more he is enhanced. It
would be better to ignore him," he
said.
"Libya is nothing, a minor
peripheral country, just an irritant...
there are a lot of other problems in the
world, South Africa, Afganistan, the
Middle East as a whole.... I think we
could use our energies more produc-
tively elsewhere," Taylor agreed.
Linderman suggested that this
week's confrontation may have been
motivated by political consideration.
"I don't see any reason why force
should have been applied, except to
provide a victory within the narrow
range of American domestic
psychology," he said.

fully implemented, and for Marcos'
system to be fully dissolved.
BOTH Quintos de Jesus and
Cullinane said they are confident that
Aquino would not use the powers
given to her by the "freedom con-
stitution" to become a dictator.
Political Science Professor Gary
Hawes, an expert on the Philippines,
said "as long as you have judicial
review and the judiciary is indepen-
dent, then it will not be possible for
her to take the measures Marcos
did."
Cullinane added that monitoring
Aquino's sincerity is the best way to
predict how she will handle her
power. He said he is encouraged that
she promises a constitution approved
by the public.
HAWES SAID now that Aquino has

more power she must move to
stimulate the economy by widening
the access of developed country
markets for Filipino goods, and by
negotiating with the World Bank and
the International Monetary Fund. He
added that these organizations need to
be lenient with the Philippines in
return.
Quintos de Jesus added that Aquino
will have to move against the war lor-
ds, the supporters of the Marcos
regime, and the Communist in-
surgency, along with ensuring
economic recovery.
According to Cullinane, one of the
most important factors to watch will
be the role of the United States. He
said the United States will want
Aquino to make changes quickly.
Because the United States is con-

cerned about the Communist in-
surgency, which has the potential to
take power in some local regions,
Cullinane said the Reagan Ad-
ministration may try to force Aquino
to make rapid reforms in the military
and then pump money into it and take
an aggressive stance against the
rebels.
However, Cullinane said the best
way to decrease the threat of the
Communist insurgency is to negotiate
a ceasefire and for the left to join the
government, which is the course the
Aquino government is following.
Cullinane fears that if the United
States succeeds in forcing Aquino to
take an aggressive stand, civil war
will ensue, and thousands of Filipinos
will die in the process.

Reagan approves $20 million in aid

(Continued from Page 1)
SPEAKES said that on Monday
night, Honduran President Jose Az-
cona Hoyo "requested urgent U.S.
military assistance to include
assistance in airlifting Honduran
troops as necessary."
He said that the requested aid also
included other assistance "in order to

repel this and future Sandinista at-
tacks."
Reagan notified key members of
Congress of his decision early yester-
day morning and signed the formal
transfer of funds shortly before noon,
his spokesman said.
Speakes said the action, which shif-
ts Pentagon funds into a foreign
assistance account, is not subject to

approval or disapproval by Congress.
At the State Department, deputy
spokesman Charles Redman said
Gen. John Galvin, commander in
chief of the U.S. Southern Command,
has been dispatched to Honduras to
assess the situation and provide in-
telligence and advice to the Honduran
government.
