Serb leaders debate peace plan

GENEVA (AP)-The leader of Bosnian
Serbs said yesterday he accepted mediators'
peace proposals, apparently dropping demands
for a separate state within the war-ravaged na-
tion.
A leader of the self-styled Bosnian Serb Re-
public predicted lawmakers would not back the
deal by Radovan Karadzic.
The disagreement illustrates the fragile state
of efforts by mediators Cyrus Vance and Lord
Owen to end the ethnic fighting in Bosnia-
Herzegovina, where Serbs led by Karadzic con-
trol about 70 percent of the territory.
Combat continues sporadically in Sarajevo
and along a strategic Serb-held land corridor in
northern Bosnia. The narrow strip connects
Serb-held land in western Bosnia with Serbia.
Serbia has been blamed for fomenting a civil

war that has killed more than 17,000 people,
left one million homeless and produced charges
of "ethnic cleansing."
At yesterday's peace talks, Karadzic agreed
to a constitutional framework proposed by the
mediators, who have proposed dividing Bosnia
into 10 provinces among the three main fac-
tions: Muslims, Serbs and Croats. Karadzic said
the deal was subject to approval by the Bosnian
Serbs' assembly within a week, a Yugoslav del-
egation statement said.
Karadzic has previously agreed to local
cease-fires that have been quickly violate . by
Serb forces. His critics have questioned his
commitment to peace under anything less than
his terms.
Biljana Plavsic, vice-president of the self-
styled Bosnian Serb Republic, was asked by a

British television interviewer if parliament will
accept the deal. "No," she said. "Absolutely
no."
Karadzic, she said, "can approve some de-
tails in this agreement, you know, but ... he, of
course, didn't sign anything, and for him it is
completely clear that the last word is the word
of our parliament."
Fred Eckhard, the mediators' spokesperson,
said the talks would move on to other points if
the Bosnian Serb assembly quickly approves
yesterday's accord rather than "postpone peace
another seven days."
Karadzic's acceptance came at the end of the
three days of arm-twisting by Yugoslav federal
President Dobrica Cosic and Serbian President
Slobodan Milosevic.
See SERB, page 2

Radovan Karadzic, the
Serbian leader in Bosnia,
agreed yesterday to
mediators' peace proposals
that would end the 9-month
civil war in the former
Yugoslavia.
The plan provides that:
Bosnia would be divided
into 10 provinces among
the Muslims, Serbs and
Croats;
Central authorities would
lose much of their power.
The plan must be
approved by the Bosnian
Serbs' assembly within
seven days. When asked if
this would happen, Biljana
Plavsic, vice-president of
the Bosnian Serb Republic
said, "No. Absolutely no."

" Iraq ignores
warning to
*move missiles

Bush administration
says it will use
military force to
protect no fly zone
KUWAIT CITY (AP)-Iraq
pulled the tiger's tail yesterday and
* crossed over into Kuwait for the
third day running to remove equip-
ment from a former Iraqi naval base
despite warnings from the United
Nations and Washington.
The Bush administration declared
Iraq's fresh incursions into disputed
territory "a matter of extreme con-
cern" yesterday and said there would
be no further warnings before
possible military retaliation for
threatening moves by Saddam
Hussein.
"They are demolishing buildings
and taking whatever they can," said
Abdel Latif Kabbaj, spokesperson
for U.N. observers in the demilita-
rized zone along the Iraq-Kuwait
border.
U.S. officials also said Baghdad
was moving anti-aircraft missile bat-
teries around the southern and
northern "no-fly" zones in defiance
of demands to remove them.
"The warning that we gave still
stands," said Pentagon spokesperson
Bob Hall. "We won't tolerate any
interference with our ability to
enforce the no-fly zone. And if we
make a judgment that some Iraqi ac-
tion interferes with that ability, we'll
take the appropriate action."

President Bush's press secretary,
Marlin Fitzwater, said Iraq would
get no further warnings to halt such
actions before possible military re-
taliation. Kabbaj said about 150 un-
armed Iraqis in civilian clothes en-
tered the zone yesterday to remove
more equipment from the former
base near Umm Qasr, about 50 miles
north of Kuwait City.
A senior Pentagon official said
last week's dispute over Iraq's anti-
aircraft missiles served to put the
U.S., British and French military
forces in the region on alert.
"We're poised, we're ready,"
should Bush give the order to strike
against Iraq, the official said.
"Saddam Hussein needs to know
that this watchdog is not going to go
away. We will be looking over his
shoulder as long as he's in charge."
Kuwaiti Defense Minister Sheik
Ali al-Sabah told Parliament that the
emirate was prepared to repel any
Iraqi military threat.
About 250 unarmed U.N. per-
sonnel keep round-the-clock watch
along the 130 miles of Iraq-Kuwait
borderland for violations of the Gulf
War cease-fire agreement or any
other U.N. resolutions.
The political editor of the official
Iraqi News Agency - who was not
identified - insisted in a commen-
tary yesterday that "Iraq did not vio-
late the demilitarized zone and did
not interfere with the work of the
(U.N.) observers ... and did not make
any kind of provocative act against
them."

Facility to
cater to
first- year
students
by Nate Hurley
Daily Administration Reporter
The West Engineering arch may
not be the only gateway to campus
in the near future.
University administrators are
drafting plans for "The Gateway
Campus" - a facility geared pri-
marily toward first-year students in
all of the University's schools and
colleges.
"The Gateway Campus" will be a
"one-stop shopping for students for
their first two years," said University
President James Duderstadt.
University officials said the new
complex would include offices -
such as student services, undergrad-
uate counselors, and financial aid.
"The plan for the building would
be a place to house some of the cur-
ricular activities for first- and sec-
ond-year students," said Susan
McClanahan, the University's assis-
tant dean for development and ex-
ternal relations.
"It would have various-sized au-
ditoriums and classroom space, an
information center, a lounge and
conference area, with some study
space," she said.
McClanahan said the complex
would be built where the Ruthven
Museum is currently located - on
Washtenaw Ave. across from the
CCRB.
University Vice President for
Student Affairs Maureen Hartford
said improving undergraduate edu-
cation was the University's main
goal in developing the new campus.
LSA Dean Edie Goldenberg said
undergraduates will benefit from the
"state of the art classrooms," com-
puters, audio and visual equipment,
and the storing of museum artifacts
in classrooms.
"There is great potential of
opening up artifacts and providing
student exhibit space," she said.
However, the plans will not af-
fect current students, since the pro-
ject is in the preliminary stages.
"I don't see the complex under
construction at the earliest for three
to four years," Duderstadt said.
One of the delays to construction
will be finding money to pay for the
complex. McClanahan estimated the
project would cost $60 million.
Administrators said some of the
money may come from the
Campaign for Michigan or a corpo-
rate sponsor.
"This is, at this point in time, a
dream - one we believe in deeply.
We need to find a donor who be-
lieves in it and is willing to make a
gift," Goldenberg said.

GOP, Democrats reach pact
to share House speaker post

by David Shepardson
Daily Government Reporter

Striving to put aside the
"partisan gridlock" that threatens
to stall today's opening of the
87th session of the Michigan
state legislature, state House
leaders announced a provisional
compromise which would split
power between House Democrats
and Republicans.

"I'd be surprised if there's a
56th vote. But never say never. I
may be surprised the other way,"
he said.
Hertel argued that the contract
is the best way to overcome grid-

us reach agreement on issues," he
said.
