Seventy-eight demonstrators were arrested at Yale University in New Haven, Conn., before campus employees leveled a shanty village erected to protest Yale’s investments in South Africa. Afterward, more than 700 people shouted anti-apartheid slogans at a rally. The protesters promised to keep pressuring the university to divest at least $350 million worth of stocks. The shantytown symbolized the homes of poor blacks in South Africa.
