Editor tells of reporting in war-torn Sarajevo

House Republicans elect

by Rachel Katz
Kemal Kurspahic is the editor in
chief of the only newspaper left in
the smoldering chaos of Sarajevo,
Bosnia.
Oslobodenje could be called an
underground paper because it is pub-
lished in a basement below the ashes
of the old newspaper building.
Kurspahic, in speaking yesterday
on "Journalism in War-Torn
Sarajevo," called the paper, which
appears daily in the city, "the last
remaining touch of pre-war
normality.
"We felt it a professional duty to
our readers, our fellow citizens and
the liberation struggle of the country
that was exposed to aggression,"
Kurspahic said.
It has not been an easy year for
Oslobodenje, Kurspahic said.
Newsprint is almost non-existent in
Sarajevo, truck drivers refuse to
make deliveries, and journalists are
in constant danger. The staff makes
its own deliveries and works seven-

'We felt it a professional duty to our readers,
our fellow citizens and the liberation struggle
of the country that was exposed to
aggression.'
- Kemal Kurspahic
Editor in chief of Oslobodenje

day shifts to decrease the danger of
coming and going.
In a sea of ethnic conflict, the
newspaper has retained its multi-
ethnic composition. Kurspahic said
he is proud of the paper's staff and
its loyalty despite the violence di-
rected at and around the paper.
"The main object of war is divi-
sion," Kurspahic said, adding that
the Serbs' attacks often disrupt or-
ganizations in which different ethnic
groups continue to work together.
Kurspahic also addressed the
broader situation in Bosnia.

The violence hurts the Serbs in
the city as well as the Muslims, he
explained. "When you shoot at the
city, you don't discriminate. You
shoot Serbs. We live together," he
added.
When asked what would help
stop the fighting, Kurspahic stressed
the need for limited airstrikes against
selected military sites, a lifting of the
arms embargo against Bosnia, con-
tinued economic pressure against the
former Yugoslav government,
stepped-up negotiations and a war
crimes trial.
Kurspahic's talk was greeted

with mixed feelings from students
with ties to the former Yugoslavia.
Dragan Popovic, a Serbian stu-
dent studying at the U-M, said the
information Americans receive is bi-
ased. The Muslim leaders, he
claimed, started the trouble by
declaring independence to the objec-
tions of Serbian residents. As a re-
sult, he said, "The Muslims suffer
most in this."
Damir Juric, a Croat who has
lived in the United States for most of
his life, expressed frustration with
the lack of Western intervention.
"It's obvious that if you don't help
the people, and you don't let them
defend themselves, and the aggres-
sors are on the verge of winning,
why should (the Serbs) stop?" he
asked.
Kurspahic echoed Juric's senti-
ment in his talk. "The war will last
until the last Bosnian leaves,"
Kurspahic said. "All that would be
left would be the history of
genocide."

WASHINGTON (AP) - House
Republicans put a more combative
stamp on their leadership team
yesterday, narrowly electing a
staunchly conservative economist
to replace a moderate as their No. 3
party official.
"Compromise is not going to be
in the vocabulary" in the session of
Congress that begins Jan. 5, com-
plained Rep. Sherwood Boehlert
(R-N.Y.).
As both parties convened to

party oficial
elect their leaders for the coming
two years, GOP members elected
Texas Rep. Richard Armey over in-
cumbent Californian Jerry Lewis to
chair the House Republican
Conference.
Incumbents won easily for the
rest of the top posts in both parties:
House Speaker Thomas Foley (D-
Wash.), Majority Leader Richard
Gephardt (D-Mo.), and Majority
Whip David Bonoir (D-Mich.),
were returned without opposition.
