A brief fistfight broke out Thursday between Pierce College students protesting American military action in the Persian Gulf and a small number of football players who called for support of U.S. troops.

For months, Pierce College student Coral Markle could be found in her wheelchair on the asphalt, copy-editing stories outside the student newspaper office, often throwing rocks at the door when she needed to speak to classmates inside. Markle also worked without the benefit of computers that other student journalists used because the newsroom bungalow was not equipped with a wheelchair access ramp.

More than 50 students temporarily disrupted a board meeting of the Los Angeles Community College District at Pierce College on Wednesday to protest tuition hikes and state budget cuts. The Woodland Hills school was the hardest hit of the district's nine colleges by a proposed 1993-94 budget released in January. It suggests 11.6% cuts, which prompted Pierce officials to cancel summer school this year rather than risk having to cut classes during the regular year.

Los Angeles city attorneys claim to have new evidence of a secret $200,000 deal cut by developer Jack Spound to gain Pierce College's support for the controversial office project he wanted to build on land next to the school's Woodland Hills campus. The payment was never made and would not have been illegal. But city attorneys Tuesday said they want to learn more about the deal to defend the city from a lawsuit brought by the developer.
