NATO downs 4 Serbia planes Sn ar oeta

* BRUSSELS, Belgium - Adding
a new dimension to the war in Bosnia-
Herzegovina, U.S. Air Force planes
early yesterday attacked six Serbian
aircraft, shooting down four of them
after they had reportedly bombed tar-
gets in Muslim-controlled areas of
the country.
According to officials at NATO
headquarters here, the attack was car-
ried out by two U.S. F-16 planes en-
'orcing a U.N.-imposed "no-fly" zone,
which has been in effect over Bosnia
since October 1992.
"The pilots issued, in accordance
with their rules of engagement, two

A 20-year-old man reported be-
ing raped and beaten near the East
Engineering Arch during Spring
Break. Three men are being sought
on charges of criminal sexual con-
duct in the assault of the Ann Arbor
The man was treated at Univer-
sity Hospitals for a broken jaw after
the early morning Feb. 20 attack.
Robert Pifer, associate director
of the Department of Public Safety
(DPS), said the case is being investi-
gated like any other case of rape.
"It is a very similar investigation
in terms of evidence and the treat-
ment of the victim," Pifer said.
While sexual assault of men is
not as common as sexual assault of
women, it is not a rare occurrence.
*During the academic year from Sep-
tember 1992 to August 1993, of the
225 sexual assaults reported to the
campus Sexual Assault Prevention
and Awareness Center (SAPAC),
three were of men.
Emberly Cross, SAPAC coun-
seling line coordinator, explained that
these assaults did not necessarily hap-
pen in thetyear they were reported.
Each of the three assaults were of
adults. The statistic that one man in
every 10 is raped includes occur-
rences of child molestation.
"(SAPAC) is here to provide ser-
vices to survivors, it doesn't matter
what gender they are," Cross said.
She added that sexual assaults of
males need to be treated with the
same seriousness and sensitivity as
sexual assault of women.
* "With males there are different
issues as well," Cross said. She ex-
plained that frequently heterosexual
men question their sexuality after
being raped, while gay men often
wonder if their sexuality was the
cause of the attack. Cross added that
in general the assailants involved in
male rapes are heterosexual.
Jim Toy, co-coordinator of Les-
Obian Gay Male Programs Office
(LGMPO), agreed.
"It seems to me that this type of
assault is more than likely to be a
violent behavioral expression of

homophobic feelings and beliefs,"
he said. He added that LGMPO
works to address these homophobic

'land or be engaged' orders to the
aircraft which ignored them," declared
a North Atlantic Treaty Organization
statement. "The NATO (F-16s) en-
gaged the planes, shooting down four
of them."
At a news conference later in the
day at NATO's southern European
headquarters in Naples, Italy, U.S.
Adm. Jeremy M. Boorda cited uncon-
firmed reports that just prior to the F-
16s' attack, the Serbian planes had
dropped as many as eight bombs, hit-
ting a hospital and a storage facility.
The incident reportedly occurred over

west of the Bosnian capital, Sarajevo.
An alliance spokesperson said the
F-16s returned safely to their base at
Aviano, Italy, but the fate of the
Serbian aircraft crews was unknown.
Speaking to reporters as he de-
parted the White House for a trip to
Chicago and Pittsburgh, President
Clinton stressed that Serbian planes
had been warned before the attack.
"Every attempt was made, to the best

of my information, to avoid this en-
counter," he said.
British Prime Minister John Ma-
jor, in Washington for talks with
Clinton, was more forceful: "There
was no reason for these planes to be
there. They were there for hostile

of assault with a deadly weapon, a
crime punishable by a maximum of
four years in jail and a $2,000 fine.
"He's coming in (today) to turn

Assistant Athletic Director Bruce
Madej said 'the incident diminished
Michigan sports successes on the field.
"We just got done with one of the
best weekends we have had," said
Madaj, referring to the Big Ten titles
won by the men's and women's track
teams and men's swimming team.
"That is what we are all about. To get
overshadowed by something like this
really hurts."
Michigan Football coach Gary
Moeller agreed.
"I'm totally shocked," Moeller
said. "I would never have envisioned
a Michigan football player in this
type of situation."
According to the police report,

officers were looking through
Peoples' Jeep Grand Cherokee, parked
outside of his apartment on the 3000
block of Signature Boulevard., while
investigating a handful of auto break-

2 new parties crash MSA's 7-
upcoming vote for president

Comm. professor denied
tenure for a second time

The Michigan Student Assembly has be-
come a party animal as two new political
parties - and two more candidates for presi-
dent - have entered the race.
The Mighty Ducks of Ann Arbor's candi-
date for MSA president will be LSA Rep. Mark

that has been in office for more than one year is
a trained bureaucrat," Moeller said.
The Mighty Ducks has five candidates, but
needs a candidate from another school in order
to run as a party. To form a party, candidates
must have students from at least three different
schools or colleges. Currently, the party has
candidates from LSA and Engineering.
Despite its name, Rabinowitz said the
Mighty Ducks is a serious party.
"I'm not going to treat it as a joke,"
Rabinowitz said. "We take the issues at hand
very seriously."
Moeller said the Outsider Party sees the
problems with MSA as caused by the structure,


Richard Campbell, assistant pro-
fessor of communication, has been
denied tenure. Again.
Campbell's case was evaluated for
the first time a year ago, when he
reached his sixth year of employment
at the University.
Campbell said he was never given
a specific reason for his being denied
tenure. "Nothing will be put in writ-
ing. As far as they're concerned, I
should disappear. ... Nobody will
thank me for my contributions to the
college. They want me gone."

Executive Vice President for Aca-
demic Affairs Gilbert Whitaker.
Whitaker then reviews the
candidate's file and decides whether
to make his own recommendation to
the Board of Regents. The regents
then have the final say on whether to
approve or deny tenure.
Campbell's case was halted when
the CEC refused to recommend him
for tenure last year. The communica-
tion department and the Program in
American Culture requested that his
case be looked at again.
Campbell said his case was re-
heard "because a number of students,
