HONG KONG
Continued from Page 1
tropolis.
rnce Charles, in a formal ceremony marking the handover,.
showed a great deal of emotion in expressing his gratitude to
Hong Kong's residents for their role in building the former
colony into a bustling worldwide commercial and trading center.
Under a 1984 treaty introducing the "one country, two sys-
tems" terms of transfer, the new Special Administrative Region
of Hong Kong will be ruled by the people of Hong Kong and
retain its own financial and trading systems, liberties and laws.
In the wake of the celebration, questions as to how Beijing's
staid conservative communist leaders will deal with capitalist
ng Kong quickly emerged.
Pierre Landry, a University political science doctoral candi-
date, said personal freedoms in Hong Kong will be bridled
almost immediately.
"There will be curbs on demonstrations, no one will be
allowed to question the independence of Hong Kong, Taiwan
or Tibet or the Communist Party of China's right to rule,"
Landry said.
Chinese President Jiang Zemin, in trying to alleviate con-
cerns about potentially drastic changes in Hang Kong resi-
dents' economic and personal liberties, pledged that China will

retain the spirit of the treaty.
However, immediately after taking control, 4,000 Chinese
troops rolled into the former British colony, evoking images of
soldiers entering Tiananmen Square nearly a decade ago.
Political science doctoral candidate Andrew Mertha. who
lived in Hong Kong for two years, said the troops were meant
not as a show of force to Hong Kong's citizens, but instead
intended to give a new face to the Chinese People's Liberation
Army.
"The troops were deliberately non-threatening," Mertha
said. The Chinese government "used the opportunity of having
cameras and press in Hong Kong" to show the world "a differ-
ent image of the PLA than troops in Tiananmen.'
Economics doctoral candidate Su Sun is optimistic that the
transfer will not adversely affect Hong Kong's economy.
Instead, he said that further integration of Hong Kong and the
mainland m ay help the Chinese economy better inter-
act with the rest of the world.
"China is a huge market with tons of opportunities for for-
eign investors," Sun said. "Hong Kong is a perfect landing strip
for them."
Economics professor David Li is "cautiously optimistic"
about the future of Hong Kong's economy. On the political
front, he said, China's leaders may initially have trouble adjust-
ing to Hong Kong residents' far-reaching freedoms -- espe-

PROVOST
Continued from Page 1
served as provost for two years, and in
that time has served under three different
University presidents.
The appointment will mark a dramatic
step in the reconstruction of the
University's administration, which
underwent a great shif following the res-
ignation of former University President
James Duderstadt in July, 1996.
The shift has left openings, currently
being filled by interim appointments, in
many of the University's top administra-
tive positions, including chief financial
officer, vice president for research and
general counsel.
The creation of the new position of
executive vice president for medical
affairs has left the need for another
administrative spot to be filled.
Currently, there are three search com-
mittees in action. Besides the Provost
Search Advisory Committee, search

committees for the CFO and EVPMA
positions have been formed.
Bollinger said the EVPMA position
should be filled by the end of July, and
the CFO position shortly thereafter. The
search for general counsel has been
postponed until the fall.
The 11-person student and faculty
committee has considered candidates
from all around the nation, Bollinger said.
"This has been an outstanding com-
mittee," Bolllinger said. "We have oper-
ated by discussion and given the full
consideration of a national search."
The committee sought additional
assistance by utilizing the assistance of
Shelley Storbeck, a consultant with
Chicago firm A. T. Kearney.
Bollinger said Storbeck helped the
committee "to obtain a sense of the prin-
ciple candidates across the country."
Storbeck said the committee is operat-
ing very efficiently and effectively.
"We were essentially asked to bring the
search to a conclusion," Storbeck said.
