The Cambridge, Mass., City Council voted unanimously to enact a first-in-the-nation ban on commercial laboratory testing of animals within the city. The ban will affect research on more than 50,000 animals that is now occurring within the six-square-mile city, officials estimated. The animals are used to test cosmetics, tobacco products, industrial chemicals, pesticides and engine exhaust.

This famously liberal city is serving notice that illegal immigrants are welcome, even while Congress is considering tough new penalties. Police won't harass you. Education and healthcare are available. Here's the hitch: You probably can't afford to live here. Back in 1985, when Cambridge first declared itself a "sanctuary city," rent control kept apartments affordable.

For those who like a bit of intellectual stimulation on holiday, some of America's university towns and cities can offer a delightful version of an exciting urban vacation--and inexpensive, too, because many local attractions and dining spots are geared toward student budgets. There are few more splendid college towns to vacation in than Cambridge, Mass., home to Harvard, Radcliffe and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

I was dismayed to see your clam chowder recipe ("Culinary SOS", August 2) The recipe from Legal Seafood Restaurant, a restaurant originally founded in Cambridge, MA where I lived for 15 years, and now a chain in New England, is a tribute to the bastardized recipes true aficianados like myself find traitorous. A properly made New England clam chowder is a dish to preach about, a dish to sing hymns for, to fight for. Just as a proper chili con carne never has beans or tomatoes in it, a true clam chowder should never contain flour, cream, and certainly never fish broth (might as well call it fish soup)
