A major problem with the proposal developed Over allowing 18-year-Olds into taverns even though they drink. Allowing underaged people into taverns was a Concession to the tavern league of Wisconsin which opposes the higher drinking age in part because it probably would Cut alcohol sales. Opponents argued that it would be nearly impossible to ensure that underaged people drink once they entered taverns. Senate majority Leader Tim Cullen a Janesville said the provision allowing underaged people in taverns was a a Sham and a he said the Senate unlike the Assembly withstood intense tavern league lobbying.

Times a the United states on Friday ordered the expulsion of South africans senior military attache in this country in response to South african raids monday against targets in Zambia Zimbabwe and Botswana. The action was the first tangible step taken by the Reagan administration beyond verbal denunciation of the attacks. But the administration reaffirmed Friday that although other Steps might be taken it had no intention at this time of either recalling the . Ambassador from South Africa or imposing More stringent economic sanctions. Administration officials said however the United states would use an assortment of political tools to try to press the South africans to Stop such Cross Border operations and to discuss with Black leaders How to do away with apartheid and open up the country a political system to participation by the Black majority. Later Friday at the United nations the United states and Britain vetoed a Security Council Resolution that called for selective International sanctions to punish South Africa for the raids. Twelve of the 15 Council members supported the Resolution and France abstained. The United states and Britain had both declared their willingness to join other Council members in unanimously condemning South Africa for the raids. But the two Western Powers walked at binding International sanctions even though they already had imposed limited economic restrictions of their own on South Africa. In Washington Secretary of state George Shultz was said by aides to be particularly angry at the South africans Over the raids. He is said to believe the raids served no useful purpose.
