Two women were raped on or
near campus last weekend in unre-

One woman reported being raped
at a fraternity on South State Street at
approximately 3 a.m. Sunday.
The Ann Arbor News reported
that officers said a 20-year-old woman
went into a bedroom to get her coat as
she was about to leave.
The suspect allegedly pinned her
down and raped her.
In the second incident, a woman

air strikes -- the U.N. commander in
Bosnia stepped up pressure on Serbs
who control most of the artillery near
Sarajevo to surrender their heavy guns
this week.
"The total exclusion zone for
heavy weapons around Sarajevo will
be implemented," Lt. Gen. Michael
Rose said after a meeting in Sarajevo
with Bosnian Vice President Ejup
Ganic. "And any heavy weapons there
will be either under U.N. control or
subject of an air attack."
His statement, as well as the tone
of speeches before the Security Coun-
cil, seemed to close the gap between
conflicting plans developed by the
United Nations and the North Atlan-
tic Treaty Organization. NATO has

set a deadline of Sunday for all heavy
weaponry to be surrendered or moved
outside a 12-mile exclusion zone
around Sarajevo. It has threatened air
strikes if the deadline is not met or if
any shelling occurs before the dead-
"This Security Council meeting is
to bring the (U.N.) bureaucracy and
some countries into line with NATO,"
Muhamed Sacirbey, ambassador for
Bosnia-Herzegovina, told reporters
yesterday afternoon. "I believe we
are overcoming that reluctance." The
Security Council meeting was called
by Russia; its members were not ex-
pected to take an actual vote.
Rose, who negotiated a cease-fire
after a mortar attack hit a Sarajevo

market Feb. 5, killing 68 and injuring
200, had called originally for Bosnian
Serbs to place their weapons under
U.N. control. That plan was derided
by NATO leaders - specifically the
United States - who called the pro-
posal "vague" and "open to abuse,"
diplomatic sources said. Several dip-
lomats said it was not clear what would
constitute "control" under the origi-
nal U.N. proposal - whether it would
be an actual surrender or merely the
placing of an unarmed observer at
gun sites.

Students urge end
As war-tom Bosnia leaps back to
the top of the national agenda, local
activists are divided on what tack the
Clinton administration should take in
making its policy.
However, despite their differences,
most activists seem to agree on two
points: the arms embargo on Bosnia-
Herzegovina should be lifted and
Sarajevo should not be seen as all of

to arms embargo
The Clinton administration has
pledged to aid in peace negotiations
and is considering air strikes against
Serbian artillery positions unless the
guns around Sarajevo are withdrawn.
Angela Fisk, an Engineering se-
nior active with the Ann Arbor Com-
mittee for Bosnia, said she thinks
U.S. military action may be the only
viable solution.
"I think as long as we're going to
have the pretense of wanting to make
a difference, it looks like the only way
we're going to do that is some sort of
U.N. action," she said.

'U' students
use cards to
leave a mark
Some University students are giv-
ing new meaning to the phrase "get-
ting carded.".
These cards have nothing to do
with frequenting bars or buying beer.
Instead, many students are carrying
their own personal business cards.
LSA junior Benjamin Kyan said
because the number of college-age
students entering the professional
world is increasing, the business card
has become a major tool for cheap
and effective communication *
among young adults.
"It seems more and more people
are getting used to the idea and have
seen young people with business
cards," Kyan said.
Kyan is currently director of in-
formation services for the Interna-
tional Directory of Young Entrepre-
neurs, a company that supplies net-
working directories to its members.
Kyan also said he thinks more
students are carrying them than ever
before, not just for business, but for
campus organizations and even just
social convenience.
"I tend to give my business cards
very freely to people," Kyan said.
"It's a lot easier than having to write
down your phone number every time
you meet somebody."
Jeff Paul, owner of International
Minute Press in Ann Arbor said while
most of the cards purchased in his
shop are used in a professional capac-
ity, occasionally students will come
in for their own personal cards. "It

House will fire the first shot today in
what could become a trade war be-
tween economic superpowers, admin-
istration officials said yesterday, with
an announcement that the United
States will seek sanctions against Ja-
pan over market barriers to Ameri-
can-made cellular phones.
Officials said the action, which
could result in high tariffs on Japa-
nese products, would be followed by
other steps designed to demonstrate
U.S. resolve against what they char-
acterize as Japan's refusal to open its
markets to foreign competition.
"There are a number of options
open to us, including some that have
not been widely discussed, that may
offer a great promise here," Presi-
dent Clinton told reporters. His chief
economic adviser, Laura D'Andrea
Tyson, said the United States might
try to enlist other trading partners to
join in pressing for more open Japa-
nese markets. Asked if sanctions
might spark a trade war, Clinton re-
plied, "It could be - but I think they
would have to think long and hard
about it." He called Japan's trade
barriers "unsustainable" and said, "It's
just not acceptable for the United
States to continue on the same path"
after Friday's collapse of U.S.-Japan
trade "framework" talks.
Today's action, if taken, would
signal a tougher stance toward Japan
by the United States. For decades,
U.S. administrations have backed
away from imposing trade sanctions
on Japan in deference to a key strate-

happens once in a while," he said.
Craig Greenberg, Michigan Stu-
dent Assembly president, said he has
had his business cards for almost a
year. "I only use mine for MSA-re-
lated stuff."
The cards are useful references
for relations with University officials
and student government officials at
other universities, Greenberg said. "I
have a ton of business cards from
student government leaders around
the country and in the Big Ten."
College Republicans President
John Damoose also uses his business
cards when meeting with student lead-
ers at other universities.
"When I meet somebody in a po-

litical setting it's just good for busi-
ness. It helps us both out," he said.
Damoose said the cards make for
humorous social situations.
"When I meet women in bars or on
vacation it makes it easier to get in
touch with them again," Damoose
said jokingly. He added that the re-
sponses are often unpredictable.
"In a social setting, if I can keep a
straight face they tend not to laugh as,

gic ally in Asia. But with the end to
the Cold War, the Clinton administra-
tion has brought a new focus to inter-
national economic issues.
Currency traders, nervous about
the tough talk out of Washington,
drove the dollar to a six-month low
against the Japanese yen.
Last week's visit by Japanese
Prime Minister Morihiro Hosokawa
ended in the unprecedented collapse
of trade talks and recriminations on
both sides. The cellular phone case,
filed by Motorola Inc., is not con-
nected to the framework talks but
conveniently faces a deadline today
for a U.S. review, and Clinton said it
provided a "classic example" of the
ways Japan limits foreign competi-
tion in practice despite agreeing to
trade deals on the books.
Five years ago, Japan agree to
give Motorola one-third to one-half
of its cellular phone business in the
Tokyo area. Company officials charge
that Japan has reneged on the bargain,
and Motorola now holds less than 5
percent of the market. The United
States reportedly will declare Japan
has violated the agreement, the first
step that could lead to high tariffs.
White House officials met for
hours yesterday on what other actions
could be taken, including reviving the
so-called Super 301 trade law that
gives the president broad powers to
retaliate against any nation found to
engage in unfair trading practices.
Tyson said the United States was
considering filing a complaint under
the General Agreement on Tariffs and
Trade, which regulates global trade.
