Cease-fire holds in Somalia; jets buzz over city

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) - Fol-
lowing a show of force over
Mogadishu by U.S. warplanes Mon-
day, the U.N. special envoy to Soma-
lia welcomed a cease-fire by the mili-
tia of clan leader Mohamed Farrah
A comment by Jonathan Howe, a
retired admiral, was relayed to report-
ersatabriefingafterMogadishu ended
its third night without attacks on for-
tified U.N. positions around the city.
"We welcome all overtures of
peace and stability in Mogadishu, as
we have seen them in the rest of the
country," Howe's statement said. His
spokesperson, Farouk Mawlawi,
would not elaborate.
Fighting between U.N. peacekeep-
ers and Aidid's militiamen has been
largely confined to the part of
Mogadishu controlled by Aidid. Lead-

ers of the other main factions gener-
ally are cooperating in rebuilding the
nation after a devastating civil war
and famine.
Aidid reportedly announced the
suspension of attacks in a radio broad-
cast Saturday.
The move was timed for the Sun-
day arrival of President Clinton's en-
voy, Robert Oakley, who is exploring
a negotiated settlement of the con-
Oakley met with Aidid's repre-
sentatives on Sunday, said a diplomat
in Mogadishu. The source, who spoke
on condition of anonymity, said he
did not know specifics of the discus-
American F-18 Hornet fighters and
A-6 Intruderbombersroaredlow over
the seaside capital Monday.
Before dawn, U.S. AC-130 aerial

gunships fired their radar-guided can-
nons at mock targets in an unpopulated
area near the city.
Burhan Mohamed Nur, a spokes-
man for Aidid, described the over-
flights by the jets and the target prac-
tice by the AC-130s as a provocation.
A three-ship U.S. Navy amphibi-
ous battle group carrying 1,756Ma-
rines moved through the Suez Canal
on Monday heading for Somalia. The
force is part of the reinforcements
being sent to Somalia to give U.N.
peacekeepers more fire power until
the March 31 deadline set by Clinton
for an American withdrawal.
Oakley reportedly met with the
commander of the Nigerian U.N. con-
tingent on Monday. The United States
and Nigeria each have one soldier
being held by Aidid's militiamen.
Aidid spokesmen have said the

American, Chief Warrant Officer
Mike Durant, would not be released
until the United Nations freed 32 So-
mali prisoners, including four key
aides of Aidid.
Durant was captured during a
battle Oct. 3 that killed at least 17
American soldiers and wounded more
than 70. Aidid said 315 Somalis we
killed and the Red Cross put the fig-
ure of Somali wounded at 700.
Diplomatic sources said Oakley
also planned meetings with the Ital-
ian, Ethiopian and Eritrean ambassa-
dors to Somalia.
U.N. Secretary-General Boutros
Boutros-Ghali said Sunday that Afri-
can, Arab and Muslim leaders would
meet with him on Oct. 20 in Ethiopi
to seek a plan to prevent Somal
from collapsing into anarchy after
U.S. troops withdraw.

Haitian military blocked the Harlan
County's docking by moving another
ship to the pier where arrangements
were made days ago for the U.S. ship
to berth at 10 a.m. yesterday.
Guards at the dock refused to let
Vicki Huddleston, deputy chief of
mission at the U.S. Embassy, enter
the gate, and police stood by or
blocked traffic while a group of shout-
ing Haitians filed off a bus.
Described later by a trembling
Huddleston as "a group of gangsters,
a group of thugs," the men shoved
diplomats and reporters gathered for
the scheduled docking, then punched
and kicked their cars as they fled.

"We don't want foreigners com-
ing here and trying to tell us what to
do!" one man screamed. Another
shouted: "We're going to do to them
what they did in Somalia!"
"The armed forces deplore that
citizens who are worried about their
national sovereignty and demonstrate
to demand clarity in governmenthave
been called 'gangsters' and 'thugs'
by members of the international com-
munity," Army commander Raoul
Cedras told reporters, reading from a
statement. He refused to answer ques-
U.S. Sen. Bob Graham (D-Fla.)
who was visiting Haiti, said: "The
United States, the world community,
cannot tolerate having a couple of
dozen thugs keep international law
and order from being carried out."

tried to hold them open, an usher
closed the doors saying, "You need a
ticket to get in here."
Some undaunted protesters ran to
the door on the top of the parking
structure and entered the building only
to find an inner door locked and two
police officers standing on the other
Jean Shermen, a visitor to Ann
Arbor from Washington, D.C., stood
atop the parking structure peering into
the Power Center windows. She said,
"You can't say these things and get
away with them."
Holding a paper tombstone that
she planned to use during the "die in,"
she said, "I'm a lesbian and I'm glad
to see an active gay community."
The protesters tried to gain access

through the box office doors. As De-
partment of Public Safety officers
pulled the doors closed, a protester
shouted, "Cal Thomas is a
homophobe. Doesn't that mean any-
thing to you?"
Audience members eventually
filed out of the building into the park-
ing structure. The protesters shouted,
"We're here. We're queer. Get used
to it."
Two women knelt in the Power
Center garage and faced the shouting
Crew team coach Charlie Sullivan
said to the women, "The love which
my husband gives me and my church
blessed and sanctified - that is the
love of God incarnate in me."
With a preacher's fire he said,
"Get your nose out of your Bible and
start looking at the world," Sullivan
No arrests were made at the event.

order to avoid problems with pranks.
Sussman said the main objective
of the meeting was to open the lines of
communication and create a positive
relationship between the various or-

ganizations so that in the future, fra-
ternities will be able to work with the
police and neighborhood associations
on any problems that arise.
Meetings have been held to try
and find out what can be done about
the problems with parking, sidewalk
maintenance and noise.
Lumm said, "I support this 100
percent. These meetings are a nice
gesture. They are certainly a step in
the right direction."

Thomas said, asserting that the coun-
try has nothandled it well- "America
has responded with a collective
Thomas said the only way to quell
the continuing downfall of society is
to stand up for the traditional beliefs
of the Bible. His number one solu-
tion, he said, is moral courage.
"We don't need new leaders, we
need to be leaders."
However, Thomas did not use his
speech simply to outline his ideal for
improving society. He also attacked
many current establishments.
He compared American universi-
ties to communists and President
Clinton to a socialist.
In his claim that the Democratic
party has been "co-opted by crazies,"
Thomas showed his disdain for our
cultural state.
Liberals were another favorite
topic. "Liberalism is not naturally
acquired, it has to be rammed into
you. It is not something you would
want to have happen to you."
Approximately 300 people -the

vast majority of whom were old
couples -- attended the lecture. Je
Whiitala, a representative of the Citi-
zens for Family Values - the event's
sponsor, said 429 tickets were sold.
He added that 80 were tickets as-
signed for promotions.
The small student turnout was dis-
appointing to the members of the
College Republicans.
"I was kind of surprised. We'v
got a lot of people on campus wl
support this," said Mark Fletcher, an
LSA sophomore.
Fletcher said he liked what he
heard, "I think what he said hits right
at the target," butothers who attended
didn't feel the same way.
"I was disappointed. I expected
more of a discourse on the role of
morality," said Steven Kaowlton, an
LSA senior.
During the question and answer
period following his speech, Thomas
became indignant when Matti Alison,
an RC senior, questioned his views.
"Are you a student at this univer-
sity? God help us," said Thomas, who
later said to the student, "You have
been poorly educated. I'm sorry, but
this is very shocking to me."
