Letter to the Editor
In these letters, three people write to the Black students of MSU complaining about hostility and obscenity from the recent Black history display. Each of these authors mention feeling Black hostility towards whites and state that they would be willing to "talk straight" with any African American student on campus who was willing. Another letter mentions the scheduling of the traditional thanksgiving-day football game, and another thanks the team of The Reflector for their kindness in a recent visit. This page also contains an image of a U.S. postage stamp depicting a caricature of a Native American man titled "The American Indian."
