The bottles of Canada Dry and Coca-Cola resemble cars on a crowded freeway as they careen, at nearly 12,000 containers an hour, along a 16-inch-wide steel track inside the downtown plant of Coca-Cola Bottling Co. of Los Angeles. At a time when many other industries--automobile, steel and food canning--are retooling or retrenching in the face of foreign competition, the beverage industry keeps chugging along--bolstered by the world's seeming insatiable thirst for soft drinks.

It was definitely family night when the Coca-Cola family, as employees of the soft drink company like to call themselves, got together to honor not another rock star or wealthy philanthropist but members of two middle-class families.

The Supreme Court agreed Friday to referee a high school sports dispute over whether coaches have a free-speech right to recruit athletes from other schools. Last year, a federal appeals court threw out a $3,000 fine and a two-year suspension given to a Tennessee high school football powerhouse whose coach was accused of violating the state's anti-recruiting rule, which is similar to regulations around the country.
