CLINTON
Continued from page 1
Environmental Protection Agency.
Another EPA prospect is Carol
Browner, a former top aide to Vice
President-elect Al Gore who now is
Florida's top environmental official.
Clinton devoted early attention to
environmental-related posts, with
former Arizona Gov. Bruce Babbitt
considered the leading contender to
head the Interior Department and
outgoing Colorado Sen. Timothy
Wirth considered the front-runner
for Energy secretary.

New Mexico Rep. Bill
Richardson also was interviewed by
Clinton for the Interior post,
Several advisers said Clinton was
close to naming a Health and Human
Services secretary, with Kunin men-
tioned as a possibility and Arkansas
health chief Dr. Jocelyn Elders con-
sidered a long shot.
University of Wisconsin Chan-
cellor Donna Shalala, a former
Housing and Urban Development
official in the Carter administration,
is mentioned in speculation for
Education secretary or another post.

WAIT
Continued from page 1
students in line give up before it is
their turn to be assigned a
computer.
Computer monitors have also re-
ceived complaints from students
about the number of computers out
of order.
"With the computers being used
seven days a week and 24 hours a
day, they are likely to have occa-
sional problems," said Vineet
Saigal, computer consultant at the
611 Church Street site. "With the
high usage rate up, we also try to
get the computers repaired at a
faster rate."
Ellison said that out of more
than 300 computers at the Angell
Hall computing location, about 24
computers are out of order.
Long waits are increased by stu-
dents who leave their computers
unattended for extended periods of
time.
"We have to police the comput-
ers, and we shouldn't have to do
that," Saigal said, adding that many
students come to the site to save a
computer and then return hours
later.
"I think it is ridiculous that there
are so many computers out of order
when they know they are going to
be needed at this time of the year,"
said LSA senior Andrea Baass.
A frustrated student who waited
more than two hours and 45 min-
utes to use a computer at Angell
Hall said, "They are doing a bad
job at making computers available
to students, since TA's come and
reserve computers for the whole
day, but do not use them most of
the day."
Mcray said the university is in
the process of implementing a new
feature requiring students to type in
a "unique name" in order to access
the computing network. The name
will be checked to make sure the
student is registered for classes.
He said this system is in effect,
but will not be mandatory until
some time next semester.
"It will help the university keep
records of the use of software and
computers on campus and forecast
the need for computer use at differ-
ent times of the year," Mcray said.

SOMALIA
Continued from page 1
"Many of the problems we had
feared most have not material-
ized," Fitzwater said.
Plans now call for the first
wave of several hundred Marines
to enter Mogadishu early tomor-
row to begin "Operation Restore
Hope" aimed at saving thousands
of Somalis from starvation.
Their mission will be to take
control of the port and the interna-
tional airfield in Mogadishu, and
another airport in Baidoa 200
miles to the west.
The Marines carry enough sup-
plies to sustain themselves for at
least 30 days.
It will be several days before
their fellow Marines from Camp
Pendleton, Calif., begin to take off
for Somalia. And it will be several
more after that before members of
the Army's light infantry from
Fort Drum, N.Y., will begin leav-
ing the United States, the officers
said.

President-elect Clinton, asked
in Chicago if he had a plan to deal
with Somalia, said, "President
Bush is in charge of this mission.
Let's let the mission be carried
out."
In Somalia, officers said, mov-
ing supplies inland will mean
trucking them and maybe even
building roads.
As for air traffic, officers said
they hoped to get a control system
running and clear enough space
near the airports so planes could
fly in, unload and take off in a
steady stream.
Yesterday, Navy F-14 fighters
from the aircraft carrier USS
Ranger flew reconnaissance mis-
sions over Mogsdishu, gathering
information about sites where the
Marines are expected to land, a
Pentagon source said.
Oakley and Marine Corps Brig.
Gen. Frank Libutti were to meet in
Mogadishu with Somali clan
leaders to brief them on what the
Marines will do after their landing,
said Pentagon spokesperson Lt.

Cmdr. Joseph F. Gradisher.
Some 1,800 Marines have been
aboard three ships - the Tripoli,
Juneau and Rushmore - off the
Somalia coast since last week, and
have been joined by the three-ship
battle group led by the Ranger.
President Bush has said he
hopes to withdraw most of the
U.S. troops and turn over the
policing of the massive humanitar-
ian aid effort to U.N. peacekeep-
ing troops before he leaves office
Jan. 20.
Fitzwater said that deadline is
"somewhat artificial in terms of
the military realities, but neverthe-
less I can assure you the presiden-
t's objective is to begin the with-
drawal as soon as possible."
Oakley, a former ambassador
to Somalia, met with U.N. Special
Envoy Ismat Kittani and with offi-
cials of international aid agencies.
He said he would meet today with
the two strongest warlords,
Mohamed Farrah Aidid and his
clan rival, Ali Mahdi Mohamed,
who control halves of the city.

RAPE
Continued from page 1
October reports.
Issari said she is satisfied with
the U-M's efforts.
"The fact that there is a high rate
of reported rape on this campus
means the university is doing a good
job," she said. "(The U-M) is talking
about the issue, and the more you
talk about the issue, the more people
come forward....
"The university is doing what it
needs to do. It's just a matter that we
keep doing that, but as long as there
is rape in society, we're going to
have rape on campus."
Issari said one of SAPAC's ac-
complishments has been raising the
number of sexual assault survivors
who report rapes to the police.
While FBI statistics show that

only 10 percent of the nation's rape
survivors report sexual assault to the
police, Issari said that 25- 30 percent
of rapes occurring on or near campus
are reported to police.
Of the 24 rapes reported to
SAPAC in November, 11 were re-
ported to the U-M Department of
Public Safety or the Ann Arbor
Police Department. Eleven of the 18
people who approached SAPAC in
October reported the incident to the
police.
In many cases survivors fear re-
porting rapes, Cain said.
"The person often does not wish
to prosecute. It could be they don't
want their family and friends to
know about it, or it could be because
they feel they don't have a strong
enough case. ... Many decided to
prosecute later," Cain said.
