Clinton sends additional troops to Somalia
WASHINGTON (AP) - Presi-
dent Clinton told the American people
yesterday he was sending 1,700 more
troops, heavy armor and naval fire-
power to Somalia to "finish the work
we set out to do." He pledged to end
the deployment within six months.
"We started this mission for the
right reasons and we are going to
finish it in the right way," Clinton
said in a nationally televised address.
"If we stay a short while longer and do
the right thing, we have a reasonable
chance of cooling the embers."
Clinton said the U.S. force needed
to be expanded to protect troops al-
ready there and to make sure humani-
tarian missions continued. Counting
troops offshore, the reinforcements
would double the American deploy-
ment to more than 10,000.
If America turned and ran because
of the rising death toll, around the
world "aggressive thugs and terror-
ists would conclude the best way to
change our policy is to kill our people,"
He said that he wanted to call the
troops home as soon as possible and
was sending diplomat Robert Oakley
to Africa to try to find a diplomatic
settlement. He said it might take "up
to six months" to complete the mis-
sion but he hoped to wrap it up before
Clinton, sitting at his Oval Office
desk, said the 4,700 U.S. troops al-
ready in Somalia would be reinforced
with 1,700 Army ground troops, 104
tanks and other armored vehicles and,
offshore, an aircraft carrier and other
naval forces carrying 3,600 Marines.
Clinton also issued a stern warn-
ing to Somalis holding at least one
American serviceperson captive. He
declared the United States would hold
them "strictly responsible for our sol-
diers' well being. We expect them to
be well treated and we expect them to

Walking alone across campus at
night can be pretty eerie.
Fortunately, groups both on and
off campus exist to provide an alter-
native to solo treading.
In addition to the usual fare of
SafeWalk, NorthWalk, Night Ride,
Night Owl and the Ride Home, a new
service has been created by Yellow
dab Co. to help students get from one
place to another safely.
For a flat rate of $2, the new ser-
vice, called M-Ride, will transport up
to four students at a time anywhere
within an imaginary triangular bound-,
ary composed of the Michigan Union,
the hill dorms and the Rock. It oper-
ates between 7 p.m. and 3 a.m.
"We were interested in offering a

Michigan students," said John Croel,
general manager of Yellow Cab Co.
"A lot of students know us and call us
regularly anyway, but we realized that

But this year; the Spartans just
might get their chance at revenge. For
the first time since 1983, Michigan
State heads into its contest with Michi-

Granted, a 2-1 record with victo-
ries over Kansas and Central Michi-
gan does not strike fear the way that
maybe a sparrow might, but it bears
consideration that the three teams
Michigan has beaten thus far have an
underwhelming 6-7 combined record.
In their first victory over Central
Michigan after two embarrassing de-

of total offense, 390 of them from
twin 195-yard rushing efforts from

head west on the 70-mile trek as well.
The team will leave Ann Arbor at
about 11:30 p.m. The men and women
will take turns running on Michigan's
back roads, striving to log just a few
miles each. Vans full of supplies will
direct the runners to the 50-yard line.
"I'm sure the men and women
involved are excited about doing it,"
Hoffman said. "It should be fun, al-

educate and celebrate
By MIKE NEWMAN
FOR THE DAILY
In a celebration of gay pride and awareness,
the Lesbian Gay Male Bisexual Programs Of-
fice (LGMBPO) will kick off a week of pro-
grams and parties.
Pride-Awareness-Commitment (PAC) week
will start with a Club Fabulous dance Saturday
at St. Andrews Church and continue with a
series of educational activities throughout the
"(One) goal is that I hope people who are
closeted will feel encouraged to consider com-
ing out of the closet at some time in the future,"
said Jim Toy, co-coordinator of the LGMBPO.
Toy said another goal is to inform people
about and muster support for the Michigan
Campaign for Human Dignity, a grassroots
effort responding to proposed legislation unfa-
vorable to the LGMBi community.
The kickoff rally - scheduled for Monday
at 7p.m. on the steps of Rackham--will feature
MC Billi Gordon, a stand-up comedian and
former LGMBPO staff member. Music and
speakers from many groups, including ACT-
UP and The Michigan Campaign for Human
Dignity will also participate.
The rest of the week will be filled with
workshops, lectures and discussions to address
needs of the LGMBi community.
Highlights include a workshop by Taylor-
Arne Wentworth called, "Women Writing Nov-
els: Finding Your Feminist Voice." Poetry read-
ings will be held by Terri Jewell, an award
winning African-American lesbian-feminist,
and Gordon will give a workshop on "Gays in
the Hollywood Film Buisiness: Making It it

Event organizers expect 250-300 people to
participate in the rally, and Toy said he hopes
the whole University community utilizes the
rest of the events.
The celebration week follows a big victory
for the University LGMBi community. At the
September meeting of the University Board of
Regents, an amendment was added to the by-
laws prohibiting discrimination on the basis of
