The prosecution of four men arrested during a 1987 protest against the appearance of avowed racist J. B. Stoner finally wrapped up this week, with two men pleading guilty to charges of battery for attacking two youths identified with the neo-Nazi Skinheads group. Late last week, the last of three charges against another defendant in the case was dismissed when a jury couldn't reach a verdict.

Saying he was not bending his principles, Jewish Defense League leader Irv Rubin pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge stemming from his role in a protest against a Glendale speaking engagement by avowed racist J. B. Stoner that turned violent. Rubin, 44, of Arcadia entered his plea Tuesday to charges that he failed to disperse after an unlawful assembly had been declared.

A bloody, noisy brawl erupted Thursday night between Ku Klux Klansmen and anti-Klan demonstrators outside the Glendale Central Library, where a controversial debate was scheduled over the so-called Pace Amendment--a proposal to deport from the United States everyone not of Western European heritage. Fearing further violence, organizers canceled the debate, which had also attracted leaders of the Nazi Party and the Jewish Defense League.

About 75 Glendale police officers and Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies Sunday held off an angry mob of more than 250 shouting protesters outside the Glendale Holiday Inn, where white supremacist J. B. Stoner was leading a meeting. The helmeted officers formed lines in front of the hotel and sealed off area streets to keep the chanting protesters off the hotel property and away from members of neo-Nazi groups.

Plans for a Holocaust debate, which aroused angry opposition from some Jewish leaders, were called off at Harbor College this week in the wake of a scuffle between a rightist student and leftist demonstrators on the Wilmington campus. But faculty sponsors of the debate said the two debaters--a Roman Catholic priest from Chicago and David McCalden, a self-described "revisionist" who disputes the historical accuracy of the Holocaust--may meet informally in a downtown Los Angeles hotel on Friday.

On a typical weekday, the bulletin board in the student union at UCLA is plastered with flyers announcing meetings and events sponsored by hundreds of student groups and clubs on campus. Last Tuesday, for example, the board announced meetings of the Lesbian Social Hour, the UCLA Cuban American Bruins, the Chinese Christian Fellowship and Enigma, a group devoted to science fiction and fantasy. Another flyer announced a lecture by Rabbi Mendel Moscowitz on "Judaism and Vegetarianism."

For three weeks, demonstrations have swept Los Angeles schools in a way that recalls the city's campus unrest of the '60s. They have created an atmosphere of crisis and focused a hot media spotlight on what had been a mundane labor dispute. But this is not your father's sit-in. The underlying themes of this wave of protests, the largest in 20 years on school campuses in this city, appear to be more reflective of the status-, degree- and money-conscious '80s.
