The other three suspects in custody
were believed to have killed civilians in
eastern Bosnia and were arrested re-
cently in a civilian car carrying rifles,
hand grenades and ammunition,
Bosnian officials said.
The Bosnian government has asked
the U.N. tribunal to examine evidence
against the five, and has promised to
release them if the tribunal does not
indict them.
A senior Bosnian army officer, how-
ever, indicated the detained officers may
be charged with war crimes before a
local court. He spoke on condition of

A spokesperson for the tribunal,
Christian Chartier, said the tribunal will
examine the allegations, but made no

further comment.
Serb leaders protested that the arrests
violated the peace accord, which stipu-
lates that those who stray into hostile
territory should be turned back rather
than arrested.
Cumming spoke cautiously on that
point. The accord encouraged freedom

The governors' welfare agreement
provides states with the option to re-
strict benefits to additional children born
while the family is on welfare.
The agreement and another agree-
ment adopted by the governors yester-
day on Medicaid are important because
of the impasse between the Republi-
can-controlled Congress and the presi-
dent over the federal budget.
The president has vetoed Republican
legislation on welfare and Medicaid,
the giant health care program for the
"We came to this town at a time when
there's enormous gridlock. We needed
a road map out of this mess," Carper
said. "I think the governors have pro-
vided that road map."
The next big step is for Congress to
be briefed on the details of the welfare
agreement and support its passage. Then
the president must agree to sign it into
Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole
(R-Kan.) said he would take the gover-
nors' proposals to the Senate and work
for the legislation, although it might
have to be changed some to get the
required votes.
President Clinton, speaking yester-
day before the governors, was noncom-
mittal about the proposal although he
expressed his desire for new welfare
legislation from Congress "in the next
few weeks."
Said Engler: "I think we've answered
every one of the president's publicly
stated objections to Medicaid and wel-
fare reform and I believe we're entitled
to a signature."
Continued from Page
(D-Detroit), said Levin has stated that
he supports the governor. "It's very
helpful ... when people outside Wash-
ington, including governors, try to reach
solutions together," McShea said.
U.S. Rep. Peter Hoekstra (R-Hol-
land) said Engler's efforts have shown
him to be a problem solver.
"The governor's raising his own im-
age in a positive level," Hoekstra said.
"(He) will be viewed as one who made
life better."
Hoekstra did not link Engler's activ-
ity to higher political aspirations. "As
the governor is here (in Washington)
debating on welfare, he's keeping in
mind what he wants to do in Michigan."
In an address to the NGA conference
yesterday, President Clintonjoked about
Republican sights on the White House.
"I was a little concerned the other
night ... I discovered that Gov.
(Tommy) Thompson (Wisc.), Gov.
Engler and Gov. (George) Voinovich
(Ohio) were checking out Al Gore's
office," Clinton said.
Hoekstra said Engler's Washington
activity is "a recognition of where the
money comes from."
"The guidelines come from Wash-
ington, so you go to Washington and try
to influence policy," Hoekstra said.
The second-term governor's obliga-
tion to the RGA is also key, said Joe
McMonigle, spokesperson for U.S. Sen.
Spencer Abraham (R-Auburn Hills).
Engler has a "responsibility to work
with the leaders in Congress to come up
with a solution," McMonigle said.
Because of the national governor's
convention, Hoekstra said, "he'd be
there whether he thought it would help
him be vice president or not."
The federal welfare proposals come
on the heels of Michigan's own legisla-

tive efforts. In a proposal called Project
Zero, welfare recipients are required to
complete 20 hours of work or school per
week in order to collect welfare benefits.

Estrogen may raise
uterine cancer risk
BOSTON - Taking estrogen alone
produces suchasubstantial risk ofuterine
cancer that post-menopausal women opt-
ing for hormone therapy should strongly
consider a protective regimen that in-
cludes progestin, according to the lead
authorofa newreport on hormone therapy.
The findings, published in today's
Journal of the American Medical Asso-
ciation, provide the most comprehen-
sive, controlled look to date at how
various hormone regimens affect the
lining of the uterus. The paper is the
second of three reports resulting from
the Post-menopausal Estrogen/Proges-
tin Intervention (PEPI) study, a multi-
faceted investigation to help women
and their doctors make better decisions
about hormone therapy.
The data published today reveal that
women taking estrogen alone had high
rates ofendometrial hyperplasia, a con-
dition in which the endometrium, the
lining of the uterus, grows excessively.
Hyperplasia is considered a precursor
of uterine cancer.

Du Pont to undergo neurological tests
PHILADELPHIA -John du Pont will undergo tests this week to see if a brain
malady is responsible for his bizarre - and possibly homicidal - behavior, a
lawyer for the chemical company heir said yesterday.
Du Pont is accused in the Jan. 26 shooting death of Olympic wrestler Dave Schultz
outside Schultz's living quarters on the du Pont estate. He was arrested after a two-day
standoff with police.
After the shooting, reports emerged of erratic and often dangerous behavior by
the 57-year-old multimillionaire. Family members and friends said du Pont had
complained that Nazis were hiding in his trees and his walls were filled with
ghosts. An expert marksman, du Pont also was reported to have aimed a submachine
gun at another wrestler training at his estate.
Doctors plan today to check for signs of abnormal brain function, said
William Lamb, one of du Pont's attorneys. If a serious mental condition is
discovered, du Pont may not be tried and instead be committed to a mental
institution, he said.
Lamb said no decision has been made regarding du Pont's mental state or the
possibility of an insanity defense.
Du Pont is scheduled enter a plea to murder charges at a preliminary heafi#

Gunman holds co-
worker hostage

HONOLULU - A man who said
he was upset over being laid off just
before Christmas returned to his
former workplace, shot a supervisor
and took another co-worker hostage
The standoff continued five hours
later on an outside stairwell, where the
gunman held a rifle, taped to his hand,
to the hostage's head. Television cre'
covered the scene live as police shar-
shooters held their fire.
The gunman, who identified himself
in telephone calls to two Honolulu ra-
dio stations as John Miranda, said he
had been "stressed out" since being laid
off just before Christmas.
The shooting happened shortly after8
a.m. at Seal Master of Hawaii, a water-
proofing business in an industrial area
near Honolulu International Airport.

Women taking any one of three regi-
mens that combined daily estrogen with.
progestin, however, had low rates of
hyperplasiasimilar to women who were
in a placebo group receivingnotherapy.


Serb official Nikola Koljevic told
The Associated Press that he had con-
tacted Adm. Leighton Smith, the com-
mander of the NATO-led force, and
that Smith "said he would intervene in
this case."
Asked if the incident could seriously
harm the peace process, Koljevic said,

Pandas at Beijing
zoo suffering from
digestion problems
BEIJING - It's worse than a simple
food craving. In serious need of more
bamboo, the 14 giant pandas at the
Beijing Zoo are suffering digestion
problems, losing weight and have be-
come more susceptible to disease, the
state-run Xinhua News Agency reported
Giant pandas depend on fresh bam-
boo - at least 22 pounds per panda per
day. Their keepers have tried feeding
them beef, eggs, milk, apples, carrots
and animal feed-but without success,
the report said.
The zoo relies on bamboo grown in
Jiaozuo in central Henan province, about
400 miles southwest of Beijing. But
farmers there, discouraged by poorprof-
its, have been selling their bamboo
groves to housing developers, the re-
port said.
Using bamboo from other regions is
not a viable solution because pandas
will only eat the woody stems when

they are fresh - harvested within the
past 24 hours.
What's more, the zoo had a budget
deficit of $1.8 million last year and
cannot afford to purchase enough of the
panda's diet staple, Xinhua said.
Egyptologist sues
over development of
pyrmiuds site
CAIRO, Egypt - An Egyptologist
filed suit against the culture minister yes-
terday, claiming his project to develop the
land around the Sphinx and the Giza
pyramids would threaten antiquities. *
Nemat Ahmed Fuad, who has won
cases to stop exhibits of Egyptian arti-
facts from traveling abroad, filed the
case with Cairo's Administrative Court
against Culture Minister Farouk Hosni.
She wants the government to stop the
Giza plateau project that began in Au-
gust and includes tearing down en-
croaching buildings.
"The ministry is building shops and
toilets and planting trees on ancie
soil," she said in court documents.'
