China opening to west, profs say

By SHELLY EBBERT
Communist China's relationship with
the western world will continue to
change as the Chinese government
seeks a more open attitude toward
western influence, according to two
professors from the University's Center
for Chinese Studies.
Political science professors Michel
Oksenberg and Leonard Woodcock
discussed their observations of China
yesterday with a crowd of about 70
people gathered at Lane Hall.
OKSENBERG, a member of the
Natural Security Council during the
Carter administration, said that the
People's Republic of China today is
charactericized by three themes: a new
self-confidence, an increasing com-
mitment to independent foreign policy,
and more emphasis on an "open door"
policy to the west. ,

He said Chinese officials are begin-
ning to feel that they have solved the
problems brought on by a large
national budget deficit, inflation, and
energy shortages in the years 1979-1981,
leaving them with a new sense of self-
confidence.
"They have begun to sense that they
are past the worst," Oksenberg said.
THE CHINESE have also become
more independent in their foreign
policy, he said. "One no longer hears
the call for increased cooperation bet-
ween China, Japan, Western Europe,
and the United States to resist the
Soviet Union," he said.
Oksenberg said that while there has
been no change in the underlying
relationship of distrust between China
and the Soviet Union, since his visits
there several years ago, the Sino-Soviet
situation has become "more stable, less

rancorous, and less volatile" than in the
past.
But Oksenberg said that at the same
time, relations between the Chinese and
the west are also improving, as China
relaxes its formerly stringent policy
against western influence.
THE CHINESE have increased their
emphasis on an "open door" policy with
the west, and are "not striking a policy
equidistant between the United states
and the Soviet Union," Oksenberg said.
Woodcock, U.S. ambassador to China
during the Carter administration, also
emphasized the new openess in China's

dealings with the West. The Chinese
government is now encouraging
western business firms to come into the
country by holding trade exhibitions
and conventions.
But Woodcock said that few
American firms had participated in
these exhibitions, because the United
States has always had a policy of
'promoting free enterprise in the free
world and protectionist policy in the
third world."
"The most we have ever aspired to be
is on friendly relations with the
Chinese," Woodcock said.

Controversial story puts
newsletter in jeopardy

(Continued from Page 1)
said they were irked that the wage plan
announced in October did not take ef-
fect until Jan. 1 and was not retroac-
tive.
Stanczak said that Virginia Nordby,
director of the University's Office of Af-
firmative Action, told her that after the
executive officers read the article,
"(University President Harold)
Shapiro put a clamp on funding."
Shapiro was unavailable for comment.
The quarterly newsletter, which has
been published for almost 14 years,
receives all of its $1,100 annual budget
from the affirmative action office.
AT THE DEC. 10 meeting, Stanczak,
who is a secretary in the music school,
said Nordby told her to draw up formal
guidelines for publishing the bulletin.
"I worked up sort of a report for Nordby,
a step-by-step procedure for nitpicky
things like who'd take the bulletin to the
printer," Stanczak said.
According to the guidelines, "The
editor will select topics for bulletin
issues and will indicate general con-
tent/subject matter to the Office of Af-
firmative Action at least three weeks
prior to expected publication."

Stanczak, -- who submitted the
guidelines to Nordby on Feb. 11, said
she learned last Thursday that Nordby
and Shapiro had approved the
guidelines, and that the bulletin would
receive funds to publish two more
issues.
She will meet with Nordby and other
University officials on April 6 to decide
the future of the bulletin.
NORDBY WOULD NOT comment on
the bulletin or its funding.
Stanczak said she felt the article
represented both sides of the issues
fairly and expressed the opinions of
staff members and University ad-
ministrators.
"It sounds ominous," she said of the
bulletin's future. "If they're mad at me,
punish me. Don't take away the
newsletter that goes to 5,000 people
because of something I wrote and
signed."
Although she stands by her story,
Stanczak said she has recommended
that each bulletin issue include a
statement that the opinions expressed
in the articles do not necessarily
represent the views of the ad-
ministration.

about 1,000 state jobs will be lost
through the cuts, but most of those
already have been left vacant by at-
trition.
Blanchard's executive order also is
expected to include at least $60 million
- and possibly up to $66 million - in'
cuts for the state's largest agency, the
Department of Social Services.
Department Director Sister Agnes
Mary Mansour said she anticipates
much of that cut will be in the form of
deferred payments to hospitals.
