World and Nation
marchers mark abortion ruleim
From Associated Press reports
Demonstrators marched with re
newed fervor at state capitals and cities
arcjund the nation Monday to com
memorate the 17th anniversary of the
Supreme Court's Roe vs. Wade ruling,
which legalized abortion.
At least 9,000 people marched
against abortion at the Georgia capitol
in Atlanta, while Washington's annual
March for Life carried a similar mes
sage to the White House, the nation's
Capitol and the U.S. Supreme Court.
''It may be a long fight," the Rev. Pat
Robertson told demonstrators in At
lanta, "(but) we will come back this
ear, we will come back, next year, we
will come back the year after ... until
sooner or later we have v ictory."
Norma McCorvey, the woman who
was the "Jane Roe" in Roe vs. Wade,
was scheduled to appear at a rally on
California's capitol steps in Sacra
The Roe vs. Wade anniversary has
become an increasingly important day
to those debating the future of abortion
in the United States.
This year's commemoration carried
special weight because of last summer's
Supreme Court ruling in Missouri's
That ruling, which opened the door
for states to impose some restrictions
on abortion, was the biggest legal v ic
tory in decades for anti-abortion forces
and led to speculation that the high
court would overturn Roe vs. Wade.
It also pumped new life into organi
zations on both sides of the aboition
debate and led to a flurry of legislative
proposals to both rest! ict and guarantee
access to abortions.
Those bills helped give added sig
nificance to this year s demonstrations.
Tens of thousands of people marched at
rallies around the nation on Sunday.
The Webster case also provided a
backdrop for one of the stranger inci
dents in the abortion observances. On
Sunday night, police in San Francisco
cited McCorvey, on whose behalf the
original Roe vs. Wade case was filed,
for illegally posting stickers bearing
the name "Roe" on city street signs.
The signs were on Webster Street.
In another unusual twist, about 12
pro-choice demonstrators wrapped 200
feet of purple ribbon around the Louisi
ana statehouse in Baton Rouge on
Monday to draw attention to their new
Coalition for Reproductive Freedom.
The ribbon, they said, symbolized the
purple sashes worn by suffragettes who
marched for women's rights earlier in
In Trenton, N.J., about 150 protest
ers marched in front of the New Jersey
statehouse in support of anti-abortion
bills, including one that would require
minors seeking abortions to notify their
The demonstrators included a group
of schoolgirls from Incarnation School
in nearby Ewing, N.J., one of whom
carried a sign that read: "Real Women
Don't Kill Babies."
"All of our parents gave us a chance,
so why don't we give them a chance,"
said another student, eighth-grader
A parental notification bill is also
pending in Nebraska, where the Legis
lature chose Monday's anniversary to
begin its debate on the issue.
In Maine, about three-dozen anti
abortion demonstrators marched on the
federal courthouse in Portland, while
their opposites lobbied legislators in
Augusta "to keep Maine a pro-choice
state,' ' in the words of pro-choice leader

At Monday's mass rally in Baku,
demonstrators carried posters reading,
"Gorbachev is the butcher of the Azer
baijani people," and "Azerbaijanis will
not succumb to tanks," said Shain
Gajiyev, a Baku journalist.
Witnesses said throngs of mourners
numbering as many as 2 million bore
coffins of Azerbaijanis killed in the
weekend assault down the narrow
streets and major thoroughfares to Lenin
Square, now renamed Freedom Square
in honor of the Azerbaijani nationalist

carrying black-bordered portraits of

monitored by the BBC in London.
Soviet troops and police did not in

Democratic Group, an informal Azer
baijani political organization.
Foreign reporters were barred from
the region, so it was difficult to deter
mine the exact death toll or reconcile
Military officials said no one had
been killed in Baku for the last two
days, and residents said the Soviet troops
seemed to have the city under control.

Student Congress Speaker Gene

the proposed system. "The idea of
student's voting is very sound and very

thousands of computers.
Robert T. Morris, 24, faces up to
five years in prison and a $250,000
fine. He is the first person brought to
trial under a 1986 federal computer
fraud and abuse law that makes it a
felony to break into a federal com
puter network and prevent author

The jury returned its verdict at
about 9:25 p.m. after nearly six hours '
of deliberations. It began consider

deliberations at 7:30 p.m.

faculty). The University doesn't want

The University is guilty of racist
hiring practices, Greene said. The only
way to make black faculty more attrac
tive to the University is to "turn them
white," Greene said.
Greene said he endured what he
considers to be unfair hiring practices
at UNC. "It's a given. Would you rather
not have a job, or would you rather
teach at a university you feel has racist
hiring practices? You do it, but you
don't condone it."
Gooder said he didn 't agree that UNC
discriminates in its hiring practices.
"There is no way I could support that."
There are no instant solutions to the
dilemma of finding black faculty,
Cannon said. "There are no instant fixes
for the problem. But that doesn't mean
the problem can't be resolved."
The best solution would be to en
courage black undergraduate students
to attend graduate school and consider
a career in teaching. Cannon said.
"But that will take time. That is a
factor. The student won't become a
college professor one year after gradu
ating from Chapel Hill."
Black faculty at UNC would be ef
fective in encouraging students to con
sider a teaching career. Cannon said.
"You want them to talk to successful
peopie. i ney are in a position 10 en
courage students to consider these ca
reers. Maybe people like me need to get
off our duffs and do more in this area."
