For the Record

February 28, 1988

In a Jan. 24 article about student groups at UCLA, The Times inaccurately stated that the Spartacus Youth League and another campus group "have had violent confrontations with campus police trying to monitor political demonstrations."

The statement was based in part on an incident on March 5, 1984, in which four Spartacus Youth League members were arrested for disrupting a speech at UCLA by Ernesto Rivas Gallont, the Salvadoran ambassador to the United States.

The individuals were removed by University of California police because the demonstrators' shouting violated UCLA policy forbidding disruptions of speeches held on campus.

There was no evidence that Spartacus Youth League members physically assaulted campus police during the demonstration, and no charges or allegations of violent confrontations between the Spartacus Youth League and campus police were made.
