University's effort to aid black

Institute, now Tuskegee Uni-
versity, a historically black col-
lege inAlabama, and the special
attention given to black poten-
tial applicants to the University.
The HRB continued working
on a program dealing with fair
housing and discrimination.

(September 29,1973)
University students demon-
strated against tuition increases
outside of the LSA Building.
One student urged the pro-
testers to "ask stupid questions,
ask them to look things up for
you" in an effort to make it diffi-
cult for students waiting in line
to pay their tuition. This protest
also dealt with the failure of the
University to confront the issues
of new state residency criteria
and insufficient financial aid.

Father of attacked
Dodgers fan calls
for witnesses
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The
father of a Los Angeles Dodgers
fan stabbed to death after a San
Francisco Giants game last week
asked Sunday for witnesses who
may have captured the fight on
mobile devices to come forward
and help both families find clo-
sure.
Robert Preece, his voice qua-
vering at times, spoke in front of
AT&T Park's iconic Willie Mays
statue before the Giants played
the San Diego Padres. He was
flanked by family members who
handed out fliers to fans stream-
ing into the stadium.
The fight Wednesday night
ended with the death of his
24-year-old son, Jonathan Denver.

"Losing a child is a heart-
ache no parent should have to
endure," Preece said in his plea
for witnesses to the fight, which
resulted in the arrest of Michael
Montgomery, 21. Montgomery
was released from jail on Friday
after the district attorney said
police have not yet collected
enough evidence to warrant
criminal charges. Montgomery's
father has told other media out-
lets that his son says Denver hit
him over the head with a chair
and he stabbed him in self-
defense.
Preece said Sunday that he
saw bystanders with mobile
devices and believes they were
recording the incident.
"The Montgomery family is
likely suffering as well," Preece
said. "I am making a plea to the
public asking that anyone who
may have witnessed the inci-
dent to come forth so that both

families can have some measure
of closure. I believe that some-
one may have videotaped the
incident so we can discover the
truth."
Denver's mother, Diana Den-
ver, said in a prepared statement
that she was angered by Mont-
gomery's release and what she
called "the negligence of our jus-
tice system."
The victim's aunt, Jill Haro
Preece read the mother's state-
ment after Diana Denver said
she was too emotional to address
the dozen of cameras and report-
ers assembled in front of Mays'
statue.
San Francisco District Attor-
ney George Gascon said police
had not spoken with any inde-
pendent witnesses who may
have witnessed the fight, which
is what prompted Preece and
his family to make their public
plea.
