Chen Min-chih, 54, still remembers with bitterness that day in 1947 when the teachers disappeared. Rioting by Taiwan-born residents had erupted to protest abuses by the new Nationalist government, which resumed Chinese sovereignty over Taiwan in 1945 after 50 years of Japanese occupation. Thousands of Taiwanese, including many locally prominent leaders, died in the brutal suppression that ended what has become known as the "Feb. 28 Incident."

Female lawmakers went after each other in Parliament Friday in a face-slapping, hair-pulling free-for-all. The brawl was just the latest in a National Assembly known for its raucous sessions. Friday's tussle was provoked when two members of the ruling Nationalist Party poked fun at opposition lawmaker Su Chih-yang for propping up her legs on a desk and letting her underwear show. "As a woman you should also watch your own behavior," Nationalist Assemblywoman Kuo Su-chun berated Su.

Leaders of the opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) have called for a mass rally in the Taiwanese capital Wednesday to demand faster political reform. The National Assembly has been engaged in debate--interrupted at times by bare-fisted brawling--about constitutional revisions proposed by the ruling Nationalists to make the body more responsive to voters. President Lee Teng-hui also seeks an end to emergency provisions enacted during the civil war on the Chinese mainland.
