Her first reaction was to walk out of the Al-Anon meeting. But Juana Mora, the only Latina in a roomful of Anglo women in tennis outfits, needed help that she simply couldn't find in her own community. So Mora attended meetings of the support group for the friends and families of alcoholics for two years with the hope of solving a family member's drinking problem. And she resolved to help other Latinas facing similar crises--or drinking problems of their own.

Re "A Day of Pride, Prey to an Ad Blitz," April 23. After reading Professor [Juana] Mora's concerns regarding the alcohol industry and Cinco de Mayo celebrations, I guess we should send in the National Guard to confiscate all of the guns pointed at the heads of Latino youth, forcing them into the liquor stores to buy booze. I've lost touch with my cultural heritage, but somehow I manage to limit my alcohol consumption to three drinks per week, and show up to work every day. I notice increased alcohol advertising around the 4th of July holiday, yet I never forget that that holiday is meant to celebrate our Declaration of Independence from an oppressive government.

In partial concessions to protesting Latinos, Cal State Northridge President Blenda J. Wilson has filled the vacant director's job for the campus program that aids low-income and minority students, and promised an earlier resolution to its uncertain future. Two weeks ago, more than 100 Latino students, faculty and staff members marched on campus and picketed Wilson's office to protest her reorganization of CSUN's Educational Opportunity Program last spring.
