Anti-nuclear demonstrators yester-
day planned to block air bases, disrupt
nuclear weapons laboratories, hold
rallies and ring church bells across the
nation to mark the atom bombings of
the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and
In Cambridge, Mass., four anti-
nuclear protesters were arrested when
they refused to leave the Draper
Charles Stark Laboratory lobby and
released two doves from a cage.
PAUL HOOD, Tom Farley,, Vern
Rossman and Jo Connelly, all of
Boston, were charged with trespassing
at the facility, which is involved in
nuclear weapons work.
In Amarillo, Texas, 36 anti-nuclear
activists neared the end of a 1,600-mile
march from the Pentagon to the Pantex
nuclear weapons assembly plant. The
group planned to camp outside the
plant from today (Hiroshima Day) until
Tuesday, (Nagasaki Day).
"Nobody in their right mind would
say they favor nuclear war, but the
position of this country is based on the
position nuclear war is possible and un-
der certain circumstances the United
States would initiate such a war," said
marcher Ken Solberg, who teaches at
St. Mary's College in Winona, Minn.
Meanwhile, in Hiroshima, about 200
Japanese and foreign pacifists staged
sit-ins yesterday to protest a recent
Soviet nuclear test.
The demonstrations were staged near

the explosion that claimed the lives of
some 200,000 people, and five other
places in Hiroshima to protest a Soviet
underground nuclear blast on July 28.

SENIOR Financial Aid Officer Elaine
Nowak said the number of GSL ap-
plications turned in by July 29 was 622
less than the amount turned in last year
at the same time.
One reason the University's GSL
borrowing seems to be running counter
to national trends is because the
University's financial aid packages are
improved somewhat this year, thus
there is less unmet need, Nowak said.
Another reason the University's GSL
applications are down may be because
of a new law linking student financial
aid to draft registration. The law
requires the University to receive
signed forms from federal financial aid
applicants stating that they have
registered before the loans can be
GROTRIAN said about 60 percent of
the forms have been collected from
students so far.

the majority usually come in between
August and October.
She also expects more applications to
be submitted as word gets out that
students can receive the loans even if
their family's income exceeds $30,000.
Although students can turn in GSL
applications for fall term up to the end
of October, it is best to apply as soon as
possible, Nowak said.
