A candle was lit, people gathered and

faiwanese students and community
einbers joined together last night on the
iclg for a candlelight vigil to listen to
eir native country's untold history.

wed it hold sentimental significance.
eno, who moved to the United States
oct Taiwan when she was in the eighth
rade, said that if anyone questioned the
:igns of the Chinese government dur-
g the Reign of White Terror, the person
ould be arrested or even executed.
Out of fear for her safety, Yenn's par-
ts kept this piece of Taiwanese histo-
from her. Mention of the events were
o in Taiwanese society.
"My parents never told me anything
til I was in the U.S.,' Yenn said. "I
ought I was Chinese. Although tny
arents didn't agree with it, that is what
tey taught me until I was here."
Other students said the years of
:pression demand recognition.
"The reason we feel it is so important to
ember is that for about 40 to 50 years,
memory of this event was repressed'

Former page Jenni Cole-Opitz was
fired by Solie after she was quoted in The
Badger Herald as saying one of her dities

"He's the speaker of the House, not

The Student Press Law Center in
Arlington, Va. offers free advice for high
school and college papers across the
country. Mike Hiestand, an attorney at
the center, said he feels the outlook for
The Badger Herald is good.
"It's a pretty much a slam-dunk case,'
Hiestand. "If the facts bear out with what
the pages have been saying, it's very
clearly a First Amendment violation and
it very well might be a matter of theft"
While there is some debate as to
whether stealing free newspapers is a
crime, The Badger Herald prints a dis-
claimer on each issue stating "Each read-
er is welcome to pick up one comple-
mentary issue of The Herald each day,
any additional copies must be picked tip
at The Herald offices."
The fact that The Badger Herald clear-
ly indicates the number of free copies

ment official. In most ciss, you don't
have the luxury of IhtisIng an official
being the one taking the papers.",
A case invoiig similttr iegi i uts-"
tions occurred with The Mtictigan Iily
in 1 .96, when half of the wsppri i er's
run - about 8,000 papers - was stolen.
The person or persons responsible for
the act cited viewpoints of editorial car-
toons and a lack of minority coverage in
the newspaper as reasons for the removal.
Signs reading "The Michigan Daily has
been cancelled due to racism" were post-
ed across caitmpus at Daily drop spots and
other locations.
While the Daily did attempt to prose-
cute, the issue neser went court.
"Even though we had an eyewitness
and evidence and the police did make a
report, the prosecutor, an attorney for
Washtenaw County, said that under
Michigan law it was not illegal to steal a
free paper" said Joan Lowenstein, co-
chair of the Board for Student
Publications and it Ain Arbor attorney.
Lowenstein said that although the
paper is free, the theft of the newspapers
cost the Daily about 510,000 in advertis-
"Even a free newspaper has value. For
example, the Daily that was taken was
the summer sublet issue and that has
much more advertisements than the aver-
age Daily," Lowenstein said. "The Daily
had to rerun the sublet section as well as

other ads and basically gae ithe compa-
nies free ads to make up.
"There is nos i bill that will be intro-
duced by the Mieltigit llouse very short-

Lowenstein said she is sure The
Badger Heraid will succeed in its case.
"Yotu Itse gosertment censorship in

Block said he also is confident The
Ba.dger Herald woulditurn out on top.
"I think we have a good case,' Block
said. "We're talking about only 30-50
papers that were stolen, but we're press-
ing on the grounds of First Amendment
rights nitd the grounds of principle."
iestand said legal precedent existed
for such a complaint. Student papers at
both the University of Florida and the
University of texas have been successful

She said she would understand if Solie
ordered the removal of the papers, but
she hadn't made a clear decision about all
the events surrounding the situation.
"I don't really know anything, except
that I've kind of learned my lesson and I
should be careful of what I say:" Cole-
Opitz said. "I dropped an off-hand
remark and the reporter printed it. I've
talked to The Badger Herald about it, and
I let them know that I was upset that the
reporter didn't use good judgment."

Five years ago, the Koumingtang
government acknowledged the mas-
sacres for the first time and erected a
monument inmemory of the victims.
LSA junior Wesley Hsu, TASA co-
programming chair, said the impor-
tance of the event goes beyond remem-
bering those who have died.
"This event is more than the com-
memoration of 228. It's getting Taiwan
into the minds of students." -Isu said.
lie said it is important for the United
States to support Taialn in its efforts to
build a democracy.

Taiwan is moving towards a democ-
ratic society" Hsu said. "China wants to
take Taiwan into its political and cultur-
al fabric," he said, adding that U.S. scup-
port of Taiwan's democratic efforts
would be a major factor in deterring
future Chinese control of Taiwan.
Hsu said he hopes that raising student
awareness and involvement in the issue
will create a chain reaction, leading to
increased national awareness of Taian.

not able to deal with and he amiably resigned," Steneck said.
During the Red Scare era of the '50s. Hatcher brought three
University professors in front of the House Subcommittee on
un-American Activities. After the hearings, H atcher issued a
statement that called for the immediate suspension of the three
instructors "without loss of pay from all duties and connections
to the University." Two of the professors later were fired.
Several members of the University Jommunity felt Hatcher's
handling of the situation was weak.
"In tIne McCarthy era, he did some stumbling," Fine said.
"Many thought he was too accommodating to the charges
against them."
But in an interview with The Michigan Daily last spring,
Hatcher said he did not regret how his administration handled
the situation.
"We had a complete line ofhaction set out for this thing by the
American Association of University Professors and I followed

their program along with the regents' approval," Hatcher said.
Peace movement events, such as student protests and sit-ins,
began to occur more frequently as Hatcher was leaving office,
Kennedy said.
"The other thing that was characteristic of (Hatcher's presi-
dency) was the development of unrest on campus ... something
he did not tolerate well," Kennedy said. "Thankfully, none of it
became strong until 167 when he was about to leave office."
Hatcher's dedication to academics was one of his most out-
standing values, Kennedy said.
"He was first and foremost a scholar and had immense respect
for scholarship,' Kennedy said. "He set a tone on campus that
helped it maintain its status as an institution during that period"
After he retired from the post of University president,
Hatcher sat on the board of directors fortthe Center for the Great
Lakes and continued to attend University events.
Hatcher is survived by his wife Anne, daughter Anne and son
Robert as well as four grandchildren. Memorial services are
scheduled to be held at Rackham Amphitheater on Sunday,
March 1. at 4 p.m.

Sarah Heuser, training and education program coordinator at

enter, said students reacted strongly to the alleged assault
*cuse rapes, although not uncommon, are rarely reported.
"Only 16 percent of all sexual assaults are reported to the
lice:' [Heuser said. "One-fourth to one-fifth of female college
udents are sexual assault victims during their college years."
Heuser said studies suggest that in 80-84 percent of sexual
saults, the assailant is someone the victim "knows and trusts.

LSA first-year student Emily Muller said that while her hall-
mates had some "random hook-ups" during the first few weeks
of school, it is now rare for people to return to their room at
night with people they do not know.
"Everybody knows each other in my hall and we're all pretty
close?' said Muller, a Couzens resident.
SAPAC' offers counseling and a 24-hour hotline for sexual
assault victims. I leuser said SAPAC receives more reports of
sexual assault than the Ann Arbor Police Department and DPS.
ind she said the center will not report sexual assaults to author-
ities against the wishes of the sictim.
"We have the most up-to-date information about all the
options available to sexual assault victims' Heuser said "We
can talk to victims and help them make a decision."

"Usually the professor is very
delighted to receive this award," Lubin
said. "It is pretty prestigious, and
because it is student-sponsored, (win-
ners) take it very seriously."

Adams will be very interesting"

nity nature and his desire for change

Adams has been recognized once again

Students praise Adams for his clear
and interesting lectures, as well as his
open and personable attitude.
