time and place we would have left," said
LSA sophomore Melanie Lawrence, a
LUCha member. "We were not asking
for him to respond to all of the prob-
lems. We were asking for a meeting."
RC student Teofilo Reyes said that
LUCha would not back down because
LAtino/a students on campus are dis-
d riminated against.
"Latinos at this University are widely
,,ignored and disrespected," Reyes said.
"We are all marginalized to a ridiculous
level. The University only reacts to
,:ssues like this when students take
,ection into their own hands. If the
,University refuses to be a pro-active
institution, we have to act.'
1 LUCha members followed Bollinger
.out the doors of the Alumni Center and
through the Diag.
"I said to the students that I would be
Absolutely willing to meet with them,"
Bollinger said, as he left the Alumni
SCentcr. "But they are insisting on a spe-
,cific time and place. That seems like a

small difference at this moment"
LSA junior Jorge Lozano, a LUCha
member, said the group would not let
Latino/a issues be ignored by Bollinger
the same way he said they were by for-
mer President James Duderstadt.
"Duderstadt tried to ignore us before,
and we are not going to let Bollinger do
it to us again," Lozano said.
After more discussion, Bollinger
agreed to invite two LUCha members
into his office to choose a specific date,
time and place for the meeting. The
three agreed the meeting will occur
Thursday night at 7 p.m. in the
Michigan Union.
Salas said she is still not satisfied. "I
won't be satisfied until Latinos achieve
all 16 demands of LUCha. There can be
no compromise on justice."
Vice President for Student Affairs
Maureen Hartford said she was sympa-
thetic to the students' cause, but said
they took an opportunity away from
other students who also wanted a
chance to speak with Bollinger.
"I understand the purpose of the stu-
dents who felt the need to speak with

President Bollinger, but they interrupt-
ed what could have been a very lovely
time for other students to express their
concerns," Hartford said.
Former MSA President Fiona Rose
said that LUCha ironically fulfilled the
purpose of the event.
"I wanted students to have a chance
to tell him what's on their minds," Rose
said. "And we got that - to a rather
excellerated level. This did not go the
way I planned it, though. But ... damn
it, we're glad to have him on campus."
Earlier in the day, Bollinger met with
representatives from 10 student groups
who expressed concern over a comment
Bollinger made about student activism
in The New York Times.
SNRE senior Angie Farleigh said she
also was upset with Bollinger a week
ago, but after meeting with him yester-
day morning, she now understands he is
committed to listening to students.
"The meeting went great," Farleigh
said. "He was receptive to our concerns.
He was very interested in working with
students. We are very impressed with
his enthusiasm."

Farleigh said LUCha's demonstration
yesterday does not reflect Bollinger's
true dedication to student issues.
"I thought that they went about it the
wrong way," Farleigh said. "If they
wanted him to listen to them, then there
were better ways than to cause a scene
at a reception where student leaders
were to express their concerns."
LSA Student Government
Representative Blake Lynch said he
understood LUCha's reasoning, but said
their methods were inappropriate.
"I understand that it was really
advantageous for them to come," Lynch
said. "I think it really could have been
held outside, though. But when they
start chanting and interrupting during
(Bollinger's) response, they are not get-
ting a chance to listen."
SAC President Ann Kolkman, an
LSA senior, said she was disappointed
by LUCha's behavior.
"I guess it was a sad way to see a lot
of hard work end," Kolkman. "Everyone
was just really surprised. Their claims
and demands were perhaps valid, but this
wasn't the place or the time'
Markets
face rocky
territory
NEW YORK (AP) - Hugh
Johnson, a market pro since Lyndon
Johnson was president, decided yes-
terday to.pull some of the $260 mil-
lion his firm manages for investors out
of the stock market.
That decision was not taken lightly.
But the market has been so weak
recently that even the most seasoned
Wall Street investors are beginning to
whisper the unthinkable.
"It's a correction," Johnson says.
"Now the question is, is it going to
deteriorate into a bear market?"
Important government figures on
employment in March, due out
Friday, are more critical now than
ever. A stronger-than-expected job
picture might prompt the Federal
Reserve to raise interest rates again,
hurting the economy.
If that's so, the 6 1/2-year bull market
may be in jeopardy. The trouble, of
course, is that no one really knows.
Like many others, Johnson, First
Albany Corp.'s chief investment offi-
cer, doesn't think a bear has yet come
knocking. But bear markets are like
quicksand, often hard to recognize until
it's too late.
Stocks tend to ebb and flow, but
since the fall of 1990 a rising Dow
Jone-industrial average has been pret-
ty much a constant.

FCC approves pricey digital televisoil
WASHINGTON - Pricey digital TVs with movie-quality pictures will start
popping up in American stores by Christmas 1998. People won't have to immedi-
ately junk their analog TV sets and VCRs. But after nine years, they'll either have
to buy new ones or $100 converters.
The changes are coming under a Federal Communications Commission p1
approved 4-0 yesterday, to implement the biggest advance in broadcasting since
color in the 1950s: digital television.
While the new wide-screen sets will have better picture and audio, a "convert-
ed" digital signal fed to today's analog set will produce no better picture and audio
than the analog set already provides.
And get ready for sticker shock: Initially, the digital TV sets are expected to cost
around $5,000 - up from earlier estimates of $2,000, says Gary Shapiro, presi-
dent of the Consumer Electronics Manufacturers Association. Digital VCRs will
sell for well above $500.
But if the devices sell as briskly as VCRs did when they debuted, those pr* es
should come down quickly.
Manufacturers predict the new sets will sell like hotcakes. They're estimating up
to 20 percent of all TV households will have them in six years, VCRs, one of the
best-selling electronic products ever, took nine years to get 20 percent penetration.

Tainted berries
cause hepatitis scare
LOS ANGELES - Many of them
giggling and putting up a brave front,
youngsters lined up in two states for
shots yesterday to protect them against
hepatitis from a contaminated, illegal
shipment of frozen strawberries.
"Needles don't scare me. I'vealready
taken a lot of shots," said 9-year-old
Lucy Kadzhikyan, a fourth-grader at
Ramona Elementary in Hollywood.
About 2,000 children in California
and Georgia received shots yesterday,
and officials in four others states
worked to prevent the spread of the dis-
ease from tainted berries believed to
have been served its school lunches.
One inner-city Los Angeles school
served the suspect dessert cups on
Monday after it was left off a list of
schools warned last Friday. More than
700 kids and teachers at Mount Vernon
Middle School will have to get shots
next week.
"A clerical error left Mount Vernon
off," district spokesperson. Brad Sales

said. "By the time we contactedthe
food service manager, the fruit cups
had already been served?'
So far, the only reported cases of
hepatitis attributed to the frozen, slic'd
strawberries have been in Michi
with 163 children and adults sickened.
Children at schools in Iowa, Arizona
and Tennessee.

China: U.S. not
decisive on Taiwan
BEIJING -After Vice President Al
Gore and House Speaker Newt
Gingrich played good cop-bad cop for
China's leadership in successive visits
here, a government spokesperson yes-
terday chided the United States for
speaking with "two voices" regarding
the sensitive issue of Taiwan.
"We have discovered the talk of
some leaders on the U.S. side, includ-
ing leaders of Congress, is contradicto-
ry," Foreign Ministry spokesperson
Shen Guofang said during a regularly
scheduled news briefing here.
Gingrich rattled China's leadership
when he deviated from the standard
diplomatic line Sunday, the last day of
a three-day visit, by bluntly announcing
that the United States would come to
Taiwan's rescue if the island were
invaded by the mainland.
"We will defend Taiwan. Period,"
Gingrich said he told top leaders, includ-
ing President Jiang Zemin and Premier
Li Peng. The Georgia Republican repeat-

ed the statement this week in Taipei. the
Taiwanese capital, where he concluded a
swing through eastAsia with 11 mew
bers of Congress in tow. '
In contrast, Gore, who concluded
his five-day visit here just as
Gingrich was arriving last week,
was much more circumspect in his
dealings with the top leadership.
Kohl.to seeek 5th
term as Chancellor
BERLIN -- Chancellor Helmut
celebrated his 67th birthday yesterdr by
announcing that he will run for an
unprecedented fifth term in national
elections scheduled for next year.
Defying opinion polls that show a
majority of Germans want him to retire
from politics, Kohl said in a national
television interview that he feels a per-
sonal duty after 15 years in power to
remain at the helm when his country is
facing serious challenges at homes
abroad.
