UNC students protest China s military actions Tuesday in the Pit. Supporters of Taiwan were outraged by the ballistic
missile test area cjose to two main Taiwanese ports and see China’s military maneuvers as an attempt to intimidate the
citizens of Taiwan from voting in their first-ever direct presidential election on March 23.
Albert Hwang, a second generation
Taiwanese American junior, said the
United States should support Taiwan by
not renewing China’s most-favored-nation
trade status. “President Clinton has done
the standard political thing and straddled
the fence. It’s come time for the United
States to offer unilateral support for Tai
wan, not just militarily, but also economi
cally," he said.
The protesters pleading “Boycott ‘Made
in China!”’ were asking the American
people not to buy Chinese products to
show support for Taiwan.

Men to Request
Of Review Theft
BY JAMES LEWIS
SPECIAL ASSIGNMENTS EDITOR
The student attorney general’s office is expected to launch an
investigation later this week into the theft of more than 1,500
copies of the last issue of the Carolina Review.
Charlton Allen, publisher of the magazine, said he met with the
Review’s editorial board Tuesday night, and they had decided to
request a formal investigation into the publication’s theft. “The
consensus was we needed to proceed with prosecution,” he said.
“That seems to be the direction we need to go in.”
Allen said he planned to meet with Student Attorney General
David Honeycutt later this week. “I will file it when I speak with
him,” Allen said.
Honeycutt said any member of the University community
could file a complaint and hisofficewouldbe obligated to conduct
a preliminary investigation. The case would then go to the Honor
Court. If the court finds a student guilty of breaking the Code of
Student Conduct they can levy sanctions ranging from censure to
indefinitely suspending a student from the University.
The front cover of the edition which was stolen depicted then
student body president candidate Aaron Nelson, who is Jewish,
with horns and a pitchfork. The cover of the magazine has been
called anti-Semitic and members of the University community,
including Chancellor Hooker, have condemned the issue.
Details about the who stole the issues and how they were put
inside Suite D of the Student Union remain unclear. An estimated
400 issues of the more than 1,500 stolen were taken around 1 a.m.
Feb. 14, immediately after a confrontation in 106 Carroll Hall
between Nelson supporters and Allen.
Former Student Attorney General George Oliver, whose office
was inside Suite D, discovered the copies in plastic bags when he
used his key to gain access to the suite door early Feb. 15.
Whoever returned the stolen issues needed a key to the office.
John Curtis, assistant director of student activities, said three
administrators have sets of master keys to the building, including
himself, Don Luse, director of the Student Union, and Scott
Hudson, director of Union operations. In addition, five building
supervisors have master keys and three sets are kept at the Union

■ Forbes and Buchanan
continue to fight after Dole
won all seven states.
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Rolling toward the Republican presi
dential nomination in shutout style, Sen.
Bob Dole is foreclosing the options of his
last rivals to do more than argue about the
issues they’re trying to push into the fall
Leverage over the party agenda goes by
the numbers, and Dole’s command of the
Super Tuesday primaries displayed domi
nance that will control what’s done and
debated on the party platform as well as the
nomination. “Today the American people
chose the conservative they want to lead
America... and all seven chose Bob Dole, ”
he said at a victory rally.
He said his holdout challengers should
get out of the path of party unity behind a
Dole ticket against President Clinton. Dole
seemed to be getting half his wJy; Steve
Forbes said “time is running out" on the
campaign he has been financing himself,
and suggested he would quit barring a
major breakthrough in one of next week’s
That’s improbable in the four Midwest
ern contests coming up next; indeed, Dole
told his supporters that next Tuesday “could
be the magic night” when he clinches a
996-delegate nominating majority.
While Dole’s winning votes were being
cast, Buchanan said he wanted to “rewrite
the platform of the Republican Party in the
image of the kind of campaigning we’ve
That's not the way it works.
In order to force high visibility conven
tion votes on the issues he has in mind,
such as criticizing U.S. trade agreements
and foreign aid, Buchanan would need
state backing that seems out of reach now.
With even his campaign co-chairman,
former Sen. Gordon Humphrey, saying “it
looks inevitably" that Dole will be nomi
nated, Forbes still hoped to get his flat tax
proposal into the platform in terms more
specific than the “flatter, fairer” concept
Dole has endorsed.
Under Republican convention rules, the
platform committee, with two members
chosen by each state delegation, makes its
decisions by simple majorities, and the
Dole campaign will rule there. To chal
lenge its terms and force an issue to a
convention vote, a dissenter would effec
tively need majorities in the delegations of
six states, one to propose the change and
five more to second it.
That might happen if the Dole majority
were to wade into a controversy over a
platform issue like abortion, and the prior
GOP platform pledge to support a consti
tutional amendment against it. While that
doesn’t fully mesh with his sometimes
imprecise personal position, the Senate
leader isn’t likely to pick a fight on so
sensitive a topic.
At this point, Buchanan has majorities
in two state delegations, Louisiana and
New Hampshire, although unpledged del
egates could alter the balance. Forbes holds
the Arizona and Delaware delegations.
Dole had 24, counting the seven he
claimed on Super Tuesday.
Forbes said earlier Tuesday that he has
been running to “get the issues before the
voters” and influence the direction the party
takes. He said influencing the platform is
part of that process. “It’s like making sau
sage not nice to behold, but it’s abso
lutely necessary in a democracy to move
ahead in a proper way,” he said.
Buchanan said he was entitled to a con
vention role, noting that he received one
last time, after his challenge to President
Bush, and say ing he speaks for more voters
now than then. His prime time spot at the
1992 convention was negotiated with the
Bush camp; he used it to deliver a speech in
which he said a cultural and religious war
was on for the soul of America.
