Catholic College confiscates newspaper containing condom column.
College authorities explained that they were hosting an open house while the paper was available, that the column was not consistent with school policy or Catholic values and that they did not want to create any "misunderstanding" for prospective students. Linda Jordan Platt, the director of college writing and adviser to the paper, said the school supports academic and press freedom on campus and that the removal of the papers was "not an attempt to censor opinions of students."
