Farmworkers mareh
against Campbells Co.

From staff and wire reports
Protesters from the University joined
a group of migrant farmworkers in
Camden, New Jersey yesterday, to
rally in front of Campbell Soup Co.
headquarters against the low wages
paid to workers at the firm's tomato
About 100 marchers, including some
children, walked through the Camden
streets for two hours in 90-degree heat
chanting "Boycott Campbell's Soup."
Six members of the University's chap-
ter of the Farm Labor Organizing
Committee support group (FLOC) and
the Latin American Solidarity Commit-
tee drove to Camden for tht rally, ac-
cording to University FLOC member
THE GROUP knelt on the grass
before Campbell Place, the two-story
corporate headquarters, and presented
petitions and flowers while singing "We
Shall Overcome" in Spanish.
Campbell officials, however, said
they could do nothing about farm con-
ditions. The giant soup company buys
10 percent of its tomatoes for soup and
V-8 juice from 90 farms in northwestern
Ohio, where the two-month picking
season is about to begin.

The rebuff had been expected, but
workers said publicity about the march
- which was joined in Philadelphia on
Saturday by United Farm Workers
leader Cesar Chavez - and Campbell's
refusal to negotiate could generate
public support for a boycott of Cam-
pbell products.
"THE PUBLIC will see it. That's why
we're here today," said Fernando
Cusvas, 41.
Workers, who struck the Ohio
growers in 1978 and launched a boycott
of Campbell's products a year later,
have urged the company to pay far-
mers more for their crops.
On March 10, members of the
University's FLOC 15-20 member sup-
port group appealed to the University
Residence Hall Association to try and
urge them to support a University-wide
boycott of Campbell products. But the
Association voted down the proposal 13-
Although Campbell's does not direc-
tly employ the migrant workers, FLOC
members argue that the firm is indirec-
tly responsible for their low wages
because they do not pay the tomato
farmers enough to enable them to
adequately support the workers.

bombing with peace vigil

moment of silence at noon in memory.
of the Nagasaki bombing.
Nagasaki, the cradle of
Christianity in Japan, will begin the ob-
servances of the Aug. 9, 1945, nuclear
attack with a morning mass at
Uragami Cathedral near the blast's
epicenter, city officials said.
THE CATHEDRAL, which was
destroyed in the attack, was rebuilt into
a symbol of the peace movement.,
About 20,000 people were expected at
a memorial for the bomb's victims at
Peace Park this morning. Mayor
Hiroshi Motojima is scheduled to read a

peace declaration calling for a ban on
nuclear arms, officlalsasaid.
At 11:02 am., the time the bomb ex-
ploded, sirens will wail, church and
temple bells ring and ships and trains
williblow their whistles.
The stage for the Nagasaki memorial
was'set Sunday night when the Olympic
flame airlifted from Greece was
rekindled at Peace Park. Praying "let
Nagasaki be the last target for atomic
attack," bombing victim Chizuko
Watanabe lit a cauldron with the Olym-
pic torch carried from Nagasaki Air-
port to the park by 10 runners.
United Press International cont-
ributed to this story.

Sex change
FROM NOW ONSuzanne Bunker may cringe when she hears the Johnny
Cash song "A Boy Named Sue." Bunker recently went to the town
clerk's office in Fair Haven, Vt. to get a copy of her birth certificate so she
could obtain a marriage license. She is scheduled to marry Shane Plummer,
also of Fair Haven, on Aug. 6. She was dismayed to find that the birth cer-
tificate listed her as a boy. Bunker went to probate court to get the error
corrected. She was advised by the town clerk that people of the same sex are
not allowed to marry in Vermont.
