DETROIT (AP) — A judge on Monday ruled unconstitutional Dearborn’s law barring non-resi dents from parks, which had been by civil challenged . h y civil rights groups who said it was enacted to keep blacks out of the suburb. Wayne County Circuit Judge Marvin Stempien found the ordi nance violated the Michigan Consti tution because it would be racially discriminatory at two parks and its enforcement would intrude on the liberty and privacy of all park users. The American Civil Liberties Union filed the suit challenging the ordinance on behalf of the Detroit branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and five Michigan residents who do not live in Dearborn. The suit also contended the law would result in blacks being illegally searched and detained in the parks. Dearborn, a city of 90,000 people on Detroit’s southwest border, had 41 black residents counted in the 1980 U.S. Census. Detroit’s popula tion of 1.2 million is 63 percent black.

Africa sanctions package goes to Senate WASHINGTON (AP) — The House, dealing President Reagan a major foreign policy reversal, voted Monday to override his veto of sanc tions against the white minority gov ernment of South Africa. The 313-83 vote rejected, in ef fect, Reagan’s last-minute offer to invoke new but limited economic sanctions by executive order against South Africa. The Democratic-controlled House originally approved the sanc tions legislation 308-77, and it had seemed virtually impossible that the chamber would reverse course and sustain Reagan’s veto of last week. It takes a vote pf two-thirds of the members present to override a veto. Reagan picked up only six votes the last roll call c from the last roll call on sanctions. A total of 81 Republicans joined 232 Democrats in voting to override the veto. Only four Democrats and 79 Republicans voted to sustain it. The Reagan defeat in the House shifts the battle to the Senate, where Majority Leader Bob Dole, R-Kan., has acknowledged that finding the votes to sustain the president’s veto has proved “very difficult.” In his letter to Dole and House Speaker Thomas P. O’Neill Jr., D- Mass., sent hours before the House vote, Reagan condemned South Af rica’s racial policies and urged the House and Senate to join with him in a united foreign policy. He offeree! to impose these new sanctions and measures by executive order: • A ban on new U.S. investments other than those in black-owned firms. • A ban on the import of South African iron or steel. • A ban on U.S. bank accounts for the South African government or its agencies • $25 million in aid to disadvan taged South Africans. • A review of ways to reduce U.S. dependence on strategic minerals from southern Africa. Study: dieting, seat belt use up WASHINGTON (AP) — Ameri cans are buckling up and dieting more, but less than half the people exercise regularly, concluded a new government study released Monday. “There is evidence that §eat belt use is increasing rapidly,” the Na tional Center for Health Statistics said in the health study. It found that the percentage of adults wearing seat belts most of the time increased from 30 percent in the first three months of 1985 to 41 percent over the last three months. “This no doubt reflects the impact of seat belt legislation in many states during 1985,” said the report. The study is designed to look at Americans’ attitudes, knowledge and actions concerning their own health, with the long-term goal of as sessing the nation’s progress be tween 1985 and 1990. The survey found that 55 percent of men and 42 percent of women consider their weight to be “just about right.” “However, one-quarter of men and almost one-half of all women were trying to lose weight, primarily by eating fewer calories, or increas ing physical activity,” it said. That did not necessarily translate into regular physical exercise, how ever, since the survey also found that “less than one-half (40 percent) of the adult population exercises on a regular basis, and only one-quarter have done so for five years or more.” Utilities (Continued from page I in the contract.
