BEIJING (AP) - From discos to
dormitories and hotels, authorities
are stepping up moves to limit for-
eigners' contacts with Chinese.
Black sedans without license
plates and full of security men have
been parked outside the U.S. Em-
bassy recently. Plainclothes police
and surveillance cameras are being
increased elsewhere to keep track of
who's meeting whom.
"Police are cracking down on
Chinese girls who met with foreign-
ers," said a clothing salesperson who

The stepped-up monitoring
comes amid a crackdown on prostitu-
tion, increased warnings about AIDS
and general wariness of associating
with foreigners since the military
crackdown on pro-democracy
protesters in Beijing in June.
The Chinese government claims
the June turmoil was instigated with
In November, the Culture Min-
istry canceled a planned exhibition at
the French embassy of a Chinese
painter, and this month police halted
plans by the Foreign Correspondents
Club of Beijing to show works by
six Chinese artists.
Western diplomats and journalists
have been turned down for routine
interviews and meetings by numer-
ous government ministries and think
tanks. A well-known "English
corner" in a public park where peo-
ple gathered on Sundays to practice
English has also been banned.
Diplomats and foreign journalists
have long lived in special com-
pounds with armed guards and
surveillance cameras. Entering taxis

Mich. Review finds 2000 editions missing
by Noelle Vance
Daily Government Reporter
Approximately 2000 editions of
the Michigan Review, a monthly
student publication, disappearcJ
within 24 hours of the paper's dis-
tribution, Review staffers said yes-
Stacks of the Review, which had
been placed in East Quad, West
Engineering, East Engineering and
the Fishbowl late Wednesday after-
noon, were gone by Thursday morn-
ing, and staff members suspect foul
"Usually it takes a couple of
weeks [for the paper to disappear].
We only can conclude that someone
who doesn't like what we said in the
last issue or just doesn't like the
Review took the liberty to remove
all our issues," said Review Editor
About 10,000 Reviews were
distributed around the campus this
Selinger pointed to two contro-
versial articles in the December Re-
view which the staff feels might
have prompted the alleged theft.
An article written about the
United Coalition Against Racism
accused the group of "taking the
civil rights movement a step back-
ward" and "making the possibility of
improving race relations much more
An editorial about the Palestine
Solidarity Committee suggested the
group was responsible for alleged
misuse of Michigan Student Assem-
bly funds during the joint MSA-
PSC fact-finding mission to the
West Bank last summer.
Members of UCAR and the PSC
deny knowing anything about the
disappearance of the Reviews.
"We believe in free speech and
free expression," said Nuha Kahoury,
member of the PSC. "No one in our
group would ever do this," she said.
Rajel Patel, UCAR Steering
Committee member, agreed, saying
none of UCAR's members were re-
sponsible, but she did express dissat-
isfaction with the article.
"It took a lot of things out of
context and said they were UCAR
positions and they're not," she said.
Selinger explained, "we're not
saying they did it. It's likely some-
one who was angry with those arti-
cles or sympathetic with those
groups." The remaining articles in
the Review were not as controver-
sial, he explained.
"Someone's trying to censor the
Review," Selinger said. "They're
afraid for ideas to be out in the open,
and the only way they can handle
them is to censor them."
