Investigations continue into
dead opossum left at Daily
by Renee Huckle and
Daily Staff Reporters
The University Department of
Safety (DPS) is continuing an inves-
tigation on the anti-Semitic note
left on the front stairs of the Stu-
dent Publications Building last
The note read: "Liberal Jewish
bastards feast upon your brethren.
Foul associates of Satan. Deutsch-
land uber alles. The fatherland will
triumph." The German phrase is a
line from the national anthem.
The officer investigating the in-
cident was unavailable to comment
on the status of the investigation.
The message was found attached
to a dead opossum with a butter
knife early last Monday morning.
Acting Building Manager Carol
Pytko turned the animal over to
DPS, who is investigating whether
the incident is related to an ad that
was recently published in The
Michigan Daily claiming that the
Holocaust was an exaggeration.
Last Monday, Sgt. Paul Vaughan
of DPS said the incident may have
been in support of the ad, but that
the letter was not written directly
to the Daily.

ing houses the Daily, the Michigan-
Ensian yearbook, and the Gargoyle
