South Africa (AP)—The first weekend on which South Africa's nonwhitcs could buy liquor on an equal basis with whites passed today without the drunken orgies and street fighting that had been predicted. Johannesburg police said there was no unusual number of complaints. By RICHARD HOfcNI AP Business News Writer NEW YORK (AP)-Aircraft and electronics issues led the stock market higher early this afternoon. There was a little more activity than on Friday. At noon the Associated Press average of 60 stocks had gained .8 at 223.7 with industrials up 1.5, rails unchanged and utilities up .5, , Gains in the aerospace section reached 1 point in many cases but the remainder of the list showed mostly fractional advance. The market leadership was the same as last week when the popular averages rose to their highest point since the week of the May slump. The Russian success with twin orbital shots has convinced many investors more money will be spent on the U.S. space program. Also displaying a generally higher tone were steels, motors, airlines, utilities and oils. Among the aircrafts Boeing was up around 2 and gains of about 1 were made by McDonnell, Republic and Lockheed. Rails were mixed while tobaccos and drugs tended to slip slow dealings. The only weekend news that market analysts were concerned with was the report of a possibil ity there would be an extra dividend declared on GI insurance and the report that 1961 personal income reached a record high. Ford led the motor group with a gain of almost 1 as is previewed the 1963 line for the press. Steel issues responded to what was considered a bright auto outlook with small gains. The auto industry is steel's biggest customer. Among the electronics, Avnet, Raytheon and Litton were up round 1 or more. Du Pont gained more than 1. At noon the Dow Jones industrial average was up 2.51 at 612.53. Brunswick was active and off ilmost 1 after selling down % on a 10,000-share block. Bond prices were mostly unchanged.

While his wife, Una, watched, B. J. Gaillot Jr. led about one dozen persons in front of Archbishop John P. Cody's residence. They carried signs that said "God Curses Cody for Integration" and "Pollution in New Orleans." Catholic schools open on a desegregated basis Sept. 4, but officials have given no indication how many Negroes will attend formerly all-white schools. Mrs. Gaillot was one of three persons excommunicated by Archbishop Joseph F.
