Stanford students attack Hoover Institution in mural

A mural of a grotesque skeletal figure painted on the wall of a Stanford University dormitory to protest the school's links to the conservative Hoover Institution has touched off a campus uproar. ``It represents the rage and protest of students at Stanford's role in the policies of Reagan in the third world,'' said Michael Arguello, one of the students who painted the mural.

The institution, a major think tank named for President Hoover and housing his papers, is located in the center of the Stanford campus. It has played a significant role in molding Reagan policies.

The mural shows the skeleton losing a deadly tug of war against angry Central American Indians, Mexican farm workers, South African blacks, and Stanford students attacking the institution.
