Argentine defence sources said the battle for Port Stanley would deter mine the outcome of the undeclared war and said their troops were fight ing advancing British troops. Argentina said early today British troops, backed by artillery and heli copters, were only 12 miles from town, apparently battling for the strategic heights that would allow British artillery to fire down on Argentine positions. 56 Sope visits Scots )n peace tour The Waiting is the Hardest Part staff photo by Peter Rocha »» United Press International ISS of l pINBURGH, Scotland — Police J It on maximum alert to protect R John Paul II from extremists Ek' during breakfast with Scot- ■$ Protestant leaders and at a mass 1(1 0Url)|the religiously divided city of )tir The history of Scotland (is) scar- vith many occasions of religious jlict and controversy,” the ht Rev.

Ian Paisley, who tried to disrupt the pope’s courtesy visit. The protesters hurled rolled up paper posters at the pope’s vehicle but it was not clear if the pontiff was aware of the incident. Paisley was not arrested but 10 others were detained. Scotland’s Protestant churches cau tiously welcomed the pope’s visit and McIntyre and other leaders accepted invitations to breakfast with the pope at the start of his fifth day in Britain. The 62-year-old pontiff was to say mass for an expected 250,000 people in Bellahouston park in Glasgow, Scotland’s industrial capital. Catholics constitute about 16 per cent of Scotland’s population, a high er proportion than anywhere else on his British visit. Despite its reputation for dour Protestantism and opposi tion to the papacy, Scotland is home to 5 million Catholics. Multitudes of students wait in line to pick up their card packets before proceeding to register for first summer session classes. Early morning lines stretched across Wellborn Road, from the Fish parking lot to DeWare Fieldhouse Reagan readies for peace tour, sets date for nuclear arms talks United Press International WASHINGTON — President Ronald Reagan, promoting his peace image by nailing a date for nuclear arms talks with the Soviets, today summoned his top advisers to a round of meetings to prepare for his Euro pean swing. On the eve of the 10-day trip to meet with leaders of the Western democracies, aides said Reagan would discuss with Cabinet officials and key staffers his talking points during visits to European capitals. Fie will also study stacks of briefing books on the economic summit at Versailles and the NATO summit in Bonn. In an emotional appearance at Memorial Day ceremonies at Arling ton Cemetery Monday, Reagan announced the United States and the Soviets will meet June 29 in Geneva to begin Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty negotiations. Teary-eyed, his voice breaking, Reagan placed a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery. Looking at a sea of white crosses marking the graves of America’s war dead, he told the 114th Memorial Day ceremony: “This is a fitting occasion to announce that START negotiations between our country and the Soviet Union will begin on the 29th of June. As for existing strategic arms agree ments, we will refrain from actions which undercut them so long as the Soviet Union shows equal restraint.” His announcement of the arms negotiations was made simultaneous ly in Moscow. Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev said in Moscow he wel comes the talks if they are “held not to cover up military preparations, but to attain concrete agreements accept able to both sides and reducing the risk of military conflicts.” niversity Center ummer hours set Solidarity underground plans strike z s (lowing are the summer hours of ration for University Center faci- s: •Memorial Student Center and |dder Tower complex — 7 a.m. to p.m. daily. ►MSC guest rooms and Post Office by — 24 hours daily. •Post Office window — 10 a.m. to m.

United Press International WARSAW, Poland — The Solidar ity underground, buoyed by a suc cessful 15-minute strike, told union activists to plan a general strike in Warsaw against martial law because smaller protests have failed. “The forms of protest action which have been used up to now have proved insufficient to force the au thorities to back off from repression and pursue the concept of national agreement,” said a clandestine appeal signed by the Warsaw region’s four- man underground committee. Workers have become radicalized since martial law was declared last Dec. 13 and “several dozens of large enterprises asked the committee to set a date for a general strike,” said the communique circulating Monday. “There is need for organization and preparations for a general strike at all levels of the union,” it said, urging factory activists to sound out the workers. The appeal apparently was the same call made Sunday night on clan destine Radio Solidarity, in a broad cast that was heard only poorly in a few districts. The appeal, dated May 28, appa rently felt support for the 15-minute strike May 13 was enough to go ahead with further strikes.

Hinckley today United Press International WASHINGTON — Defense psychiatrists at the trial of John W. Hinckley Jr. say the young loner found relief from his inner frenzy by shooting President Reagan, and that is why he appeared “cool as a cucum ber” upon his arrest. Prosecutors today set out to give the jury their own version of Hinc kley’s state of mind on the day of the shooting — opening two to three weeks of rebuttal testimony aimed at showing Hinckley knew right from wrong and could control himself. Law enforcement officers who subdued Hinckley outside a Washing ton hotel will be among witnesses cal led to testify Hinckley was steely cool and lucid — hardly a raving lunatic— on his arrest on March 30, 1981. But under a previous court ruling, prosecutors will be barred from intro ducing evidence from three FBI agents who questioned Hinckley after he asked to see a lawyer. U.S. District Judge Barrington Parker ruled such testimony would violate Hinckley’s constitutional rights. The varying psychiatric opinions could complicate the task of Hinc kley’s lawyers. They are arguing he was insane and should be acquitted in the shooting of Reagan and three others. While Hinckley’s lawyers must con vince the jury the differences are only nuances in terminology and degree, they had the unusual advantage of having written evidence to support the insanity plea. They have intro duced stacks of Hinckley’s writings over the last several years in which he portrays himself as deeply depressed, suicidal and consumed with fantasies. Battalion adds, subtracts 1 Battalion readers will now be tre ed to two new talents on the edito- al page — those of Pulitzer Prize- nning editorial cartoonist Mike Pe ts and America’s legendary satirist rt Buchwald. Peters is syndicated by United Fea- tes Syndicate in more than 300 wspapers including the Washing- n Post, the Chicago Tribune, the alias Morning News and the Hous- n Post. He received the Pulitzer in 181 and his work currently appears the Dayton Daily News. His work so frequently appears in magazines ich as Time, Newsweek and The ew Republic. Peters received the Overseas Press lub Award in 1974 and the national gma Delta Chi Distinguished Ser vice Award for Cartooning in 1975. He is a regular guest and cartoonist on “The Today Show.” Buchwald’s work is a humorous look at political activity. He was awarded “the mantle of Mark Twain” last fall at the University of Southern California for wit that “constantly pricks the balloons of pomposity.” His column, from the Los Angeles Times Syndicate, is the most widely-read and influential political humor col umn in syndication. ‘Focus’ takes summer off Focus, the Battalion’s weekly enter tainment supplement, will not be published this summer. However, the Battalion will con tinue to publish entertainment list ings in each week’s Thursday edition. Also, feature articles and reviews of the Focus-variety will continue to appear in the Battalion on a regular basis. Publication of the Battalion’s en tertainment supplement will resume at the beginning of the fall semester. Summer students can pay fees on two days If you’re signed up for classes, there’s one more step to take in order to be a full-fledged summer school student — paying your fees. Long lines are one Aggie tradition the Fiscal Department is trying to do away with, and in efforts to make fee paying lines shorter this year, the Fis cal Department has implemented an even/odd day fee payment schedule. If a student’s ID number is one that ends in a even number, they are to pay fees on Tuesday. If the ID number is one that ends with and odd number, the students is to pay on Wednesday. Bob Piwonka, manager of student fiancial services, said the schedules were created to alleviate the long lines and reduce the work load for cashiers. The recommended schedule is voluntary and students may pay either day if following it would cause inconvenience. Deadline for fee pay ments is 5 p.m. Thursday and failure to pay will result in cancellation of registration. All students who register on or af ter the first class day will pay a late fee of $10. Any course may be withdrawn from the summer session schedule if the number of registrations is too small to justify offering the course. inside Classified 8 Local 3 National 9 Opinions 2 Sports 10 State 4 What’s Up 9 forecast Today’s Forecast: Sunny.
