Despite a second protest by about 45 military veterans and others, student leaders at Saddleback College on Thursday held firm to their policy of holding meetings without the Pledge of Allegiance. "I don't think we are being disrespectful for not saying the pledge," said Michelle Dawson, a member of the Associated Student Government. "In fact, I think we are trying to respect the feelings of everyone in our country."

The Bremerton High School student congress on a 49-47 vote has approved a measure that would bar openly gay teen-agers from serving in student government, but the principal says it is unlikely the new rule will ever take effect. The 1,350-member student body in Washington will vote on the issue Monday, requiring a two-thirds majority for approval. Even then, its chances of passing a review by the school administration are slim, said Principal Marilee Hansen.

About 30 veterans and students defiantly recited the Pledge of Allegiance at Saddleback College on Thursday in a low-key protest against a student body leader whose refusal to salute the flag has sparked controversy. "We're not pushing to force anybody to give the Pledge of Allegiance," said 71-year-old George Key, a San Clemente resident and veteran of both World War II and the Korean War.

The editor of a UC Irvine student newspaper, which was confiscated earlier this week by student government officials because it published student election endorsements, said Thursday he will take his fight to court, provided he can get an attorney. Approximately 3,000 copies of La Voz Mestiza, published by Chicano students at UCI, were seized by Associated Students president Julie Justus for about 21 hours Tuesday after it was learned the paper had endorsed a particular slate of candidates.

By most accounts, high school students get involved with campus government for purely altruistic reasons. Some might initially take a student government class thinking it will be an easy A. Or they might vie for school president just for kicks. But when they discover student government is hard work, they display uncanny amounts of determination, teachers say. They don't quibble about staying after class to paint posters advertising school dances or blood drives.

A feisty student-run newspaper shut down three weeks ago by the student government at Cal State Long Beach after publishing a satirical section containing erotic drawings has been revived by order of a student judiciary committee. "Right now, I'm ecstatically happy that we're open for business again," said Gary Stark, editor of the Union newspaper founded 10 years ago by student government as an alternative to the newspaper run by the university's journalism department.

The Student Senate at Cal State Long Beach has voted to shut down an alternative newspaper it has published for more than 10 years after the paper printed a satirical edition containing erotic drawings. "That was the straw that broke the camel's back," Roger Thompson, the student body president, said of what was called "The Sexually Frustrated Male Issue." "We just felt that we could do better things with the money," Thompson said.

It may or may not be their mess, but they'll clean it up anyway. In response to a challenge by Mayor Jan Heidt, the members of the Canyon High School student government adopted a strip of Whites Canyon Road near their school to do monthly litter pickups. The decision came after Heidt received a letter from an angry resident complaining about the disheveled state of the street and blaming the mess on students at Canyon and nearby Sierra Vista Junior High.

Saying that student leaders at Saddleback College are not setting the right example, the City Council this week passed a resolution urging them to reinstate the Pledge of Allegiance at all their public meetings. The action came just two weeks after a similar resolution was passed by San Juan Capistrano's City Council. "Many people are looking to your leadership," San Clemente Councilman Patrick M. Ahle told student leaders. "What type of example are you going to set? What values, what morals . .
