MSU students attacked
BY WENDY WORTHEN
Two attacks on supporters of gay male and lesbian rights occurred at

gay male and lesbian rights, reported that his room was set on fire and
that threatening graffiti had been written about him on a campus bridge.
Aryc Mosher, a member of the MSU Lesbian and Gay Council, said his
car had been doused with gasoline Sunday night.

Student anti-racist group forms
BY LIZ PAIGE
African American students from eight state colleges and universities
have organized to discuss and take action on issues of institutionalized
racism in higher education in Michigan.

Judge interrupts defense
council, postpones trial
BY DIANE COOK
The trial involving University students arrested while protesting the
presidential inauguration of James Duderstadt came to an abrupt halt last
Friday after only two hours of deliberation.
Judge Peter Thomassen's decision to postpone the trial for two weeks
came after he interrupted the council for the defense, Alexis Beck.
Thomassen stopped Beck's line of questioning which addressed the use of
force by the police department.
Sandra Steingraber and Mike Fischer, both Ph.D. candidates, are
charged with disturbing the peace; Steingraber is charged with assault and
battery. Both have declined to comment while the trial is in progress.
Steingraber was transported to the hospital because of injuries sus-
tained during the October protest.
