The Michigan football team faces
a tough mission. It's a mission that
ould be labeled ... impossible. How-
ver, unlike Peter Graves, the Wol-
verines do not have the option of
t ing it down.
eir task: stopping the high-
owered Colorado offense, which
anks fourth nationally in total of-
ense (548.5 yards per game) and
hird in scoring (51.5 points per
ame).
"You can't ever stop their of-
ense," Michigan coach Gary Moeller
aid. "'They are a fast-break, explo-
ive-type of team. I can't put my
er on a team that has more per-
nel."
Michigan's best hope of counter-
'ng the Buffaloes' scoring machine
ay be to put a lot of points on the
ard itself. That will be easier thanks
o the return of star tailback Tyrone
eatley, who missed the team's
irst two games with a separated
houlder. The senior, a preseason
isman Trophy favorite, will not
, but figures to get 10 to 15 car-
es against Colorado.
The No. 7 Buffaloes (2-0) dis-
layed their offensive wares in a 55-
17 destruction of then-No. 10 Wis-
onsin, racking up 27 points by half-
me. Kordell Stewart heads coach
ill McCartney's formidable attack.
The senior quarterback earned Big
ight Offensive Player of the Week
ors after his performance against
Badgers. He completed eight of
15 passes for 248 yards and two touch-
owns. Already Colorado's all-time
eading passer, he stands just 156
ards short of breaking Darian
agan's school total offense mark of
,808 yards.

Over the past several years, the
niversity has been the scene of the
hooting of a doctor to death, a dis-
tled employee firing on the ad-
nistration building and admissions
fficers being held at knifepoint.
But workplace violence isn't lim-
ted to high-profile incidents.
"Workplace violence is a perva-
ive occurrence. It is not isolated or
nique," said Keith Bruhnsen, man-
ger of the Faculty and Staff Assis-
ce Program.
He and other University organiz-
gathered information about work-
lace violence within the University
t a public meeting last night.

Los Angeles Times
VIENNA, Austria - NATO war
planes yesterday punished a Bosnian
Serb attack on U.N. troops by bomb-
ing an unmanned tank near Sarajevo,
increasing tension in the troubled
peacekeeping mission and reminding
a world distracted by other crises that
war still rages in the Balkans.
The air strikes, launched at dusk
by American and British aircraft, were
provoked by a Bosnian Serb attack on
French troops earlier in the day,
NATO officials said.
In that incident, four, rocket-pro-
pelled grenades were fired at a light-
tank unit northeast of Sarajevo. One
French soldier was seriously
wounded.
The NATO action was called for.
by French Gen. Bertrand de LaPresle,
the U.N. Protection Force com-
mander, "to prove that he would not
take the attack on the French tank
lying down," said Squadron Leader
(Maj.) Nigel Branston, a spokesper-
son at the North Atlantic Treaty
Organization's headquarters for
southern Europe in Naples, Italy.
But the air strike threatened to
widen a rift between NATO countries
with peacekeeping forces deployed
in Bosnia and others - chiefly the
United States - who have been press-
ing for tougher measures against the
defiant Bosnian Serbs without the
same need to fear consequences for
troops on the ground.
French and British soldiers serv-
ing with the U.N. mission in Bosnia
have become the chief targets of an-
gry Bosnian Serbs as pressure builds
in Western countries for an end to a
U.N. arms embargo that has severely
disadvantaged the Muslim-led
Bosnian government.

British Lt. Gen. Michael Rose,
commander for U.N. troops in Bosnia,
vociferously opposes any moves the
rebels would see as outside forces
taking sides against them, such as air
strikes or seeking to arm the govern-
ment forces.
Rose has repeatedly declined to
use force to compel Bosnian Serbs to
abide by weapons-exclusion zones
proclaimed around Sarajevo and the
eastern town of Gorazde.
Bosnian Serb forces also routinely
violate a "no-fly" zone declared over
Bosnia. Paul Risley, a spokesman at
U.N. headquarters in Zagreb, Croatia,
said U.N. observers have reported
"scores of sorties" by Bosnian Serb
helicopters to battle fronts in the
republic's northeast.
But yesterday's air strike was car-
ried out by NATO aircraft flying over
Bosnia in what are usually symbolic
patrols.
LaPresle called on NATO to re-
taliate for the attack on the French
unit, prompting alliance commanders
in Naples to order pilots near Sarajevo
to find and destroy a previously iden-
tified target, a T-55 tank deployed
about two miles from the U.N.-con-
trolled airport in violation of the weap-
ons-exclusion zone.
A U.S. A-10 Warthog, the air com-
bat workhorse dubbed the "tank-
buster," located the tank and ran a
strafing sortie at 6:25 p.m. The pilot
reported back that he was unsure he
had hit the target shrouded in shad-
ows, Branston said.
Two British Jaguars then swept
the area near the Bosnian Serb base at
Lukavica, each dropping a 1,000-
pound bomb.

In a weekend filled with prime
activities - a huge football game,
Greek rush and autumn weather -
Varsity Night promises to be the per-
fect beginning.
Varsity Night is the first pep rally
sponsored by the Campaign for Michi-
gan Foundation, whose primary goal
is to raise $1 billion by the end of
1997.
The rally, which features Univer-
sity coaches, athletes, and cheerlead-
ers, begins at 9 p.m. at Hill Audito-
rium and is slated to last until 10 p.m.

The idea for Varsity Night stems
from an old Michigan tradition that
faded out in the early 1960s, said Pam
Clapp, one of the event's organizers.
The previous rallies were spirited
nights of bonfires, singing, variety
shows and speeches, intended to
heighten school spirit.
The tradition was revived this year
to "create a great way to end the
evening for alumni and students and
show them what a great tradition ath-
letics, are at Michigan," Clapp said.
The Michigan cheerleaders will
kick off the night, which includes
speeches from campus celebrities such

as football coach Gary Moeller, Ath-
letic Director Joe Roberson and Presi-
dent James J. Duderstadt.
Roberson, the night's emcee, will
talk about school spirit and the ath-
letic tradition on campus. All Univer-
sity sports team members not com-
peting Saturday also will attend.
The Men's Glee Club is sched-
uled to lead off the night's musical
performances with a medley of tradi-
tional Michigan theme songs.
The Michigan Marching Band will
conclude the festivities by perform-
ing traditional Michigan fight songs
to gearing up for tomorrow's game.

sources and the Department of Public
Safety organized the event. National
attention on the subject and an in-
creased numbers of reports of Uni-
versity incidents prompted the atten-
tion to the issue.
Organizers sought to gain infor-
mation about incidents on campus,
employee concerns and possible av-
enues for assistance. Plans for a
"Workplace Violence Task Force"
were also discussed.
Last night's meeting was the sec-
ond in a series of three. The open
forum allowed organizers to listen to
the stories of various University em-
ployees.
The information gathered at the
meetings is being coupled with sur-
veys and information from other in-

stitutions in an effort to help the Uni-
versity develop comprehensive pro-
grams for intervention and preven-
tion.
Workplace violence includes a
range of offenses from stalking, ha-
rassment and threatening letters and
calls' to physical assaults.
Workplace violence happens regu-
larly within the University. The inci-
dents are often reported to various
University aid and enforcement agen-
cies. That fact comes as no surprise to
the individuals who shared their ex-
periences last night.
"I just want to get away from this
guy," said one longtime University
employee.
The employee, who wished to re-
main anonymous, said he had been

repeatedly harassed by a coworker.
He said he had difficulty sleeping and
working.
The employee also said he was
dissatisfied with the University's lax
treatment of his situation. He felt he
had no recourse.
Another meeting attendee shared
with the group his story of physical
assault by a coworker. He added that
he had been recurrently ill after the
stress of the incident. He said he felt
that the University system was work-
ing against him.
Another man in attendance at the
meeting, formerly of the Lesbian Gay
Bisexual Programs Office, said he
and the office had often been threat-
ened while he was there.

As another initiative under the
University's Agenda for Women, the
Affirmative Action office is hiring
two new officers to handle sexual
harassment cases under the
University's revised harassment
policy.
Employee Relations Director
Bruce Cringle says the office hopes to
fill the positions quickly because of
the sensitive nature of sexual harass-
ment.
"It's a very complex subject (be-
cause) they are very serious allega-
tions," he said. "It's traumatic for the

person making the allegations yet
there is the need to protect the rights
of the accused."
One of the new jobs is a training
position that helps University staff
and administration to identify and
prevent sexual harassment, and cre-
ate educational programs.
The other post focuses on the co-
ordination of investigations and legal
of sexual harassment is difficult.
"I'm not sure what the extent of
the problem is. Many times there
doesn't happen to be a witness and
it's one person's word against
another's," he said. "Some people say
it is very prevalent, some say there is

no such thing."
Some faculty members said they
were pleased that the University was
investing more time into education
and prevention of sexual harassment.
Jean Loup, Senate Advisory Com-
mittee for University Affairs chair,
said it was unfortunate that the Uni-
versity had to add these positions to
curb the problem.
"I would assume that one doesn't
create positions without need," she
said. "I think it's sad that the need
exists."
In a university setting, Cringle
