NATO prepares
for air strikes on

VILAMOURA, Portugal (AP) -
*NAIO instructed its generals vester-
day to begin preparing for air strikes
on Yugoslavia unless President
Slobodan Milosevic ends his attacks
on ethnic Albanians in Kosovo
The big question now: Will the
tough Yugoslav president be intimi-
The difference between this action
and prexvious NATO tough talk is the
tone and the timing, NATO officials
asserted A tough U N resolution
Vednesday, combined with NATO's
activation warning" yesterday of
phased air strikes and cruise missile
attacks takes the 16-nation alliance
to the brink of shooting
"Today, NATO sent a clear mes-
sage to President Milosevic that it is
time to stop the killing and destruc-
tion in Kosovo," said U.S. Defense
Secretary William Cohen after a
meeting of allied defense ministers
*Our patience is running out ~
NATO Secretary-General Javier
Solana said the activation warning
from the North Atlantic Council,
NATO's top policy-making body,
takes NATO "to an increased level of
military preparedness~
But he added, "Let me stress that
the use of force will require further
decisions" by NATO governments.
Milosexic's massive attacks on
ethnic Albanian villages in Kosovo
*axe continued unabated since
I Fbruary, despite previous NATO
threats. Flis seven-month crackdown
on ethnic Albanian separatists fight-
ing for independence in Kosovo has
claimed hundreds of lives and forced
as many as 275,000 people from
their homes
Previous threats of military action
have failed to persuade Milosevic to
*'nend his ways, and the latest saber-

rattling from the alliance did not
appear to have slow cd his onslaught
on Kosovo, a province of Serbia
where ethnic Albanians make up 90
percent of the population.
If the political decision is made to
launch a NATO military action
against Yugoslavia, it would be a
phased campaign, gradually increas-
ing in intensity.
"The targets would be military
targets," said Walter Slocombe, U.S.
undersecretary of defense for policy.
"Very, very effective and very, very
strong blows would be aimed at the
very instruments that Milosevic is
using to carry out this repression"
Asked if he thought NATO could
bomb Milosevic into submission,
Gen. Henry Shelton. chairman of the
U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, said: "I
believe that we have a wide range of
options available to us, the end
result of which will be that
Milosevic will comply with the-
mands made of him by NATO."
"Certainly we will start with the
lighter of the options to give him a
chance to respond," he added. "But
it might not end with the light
Gen. Wesley Clark, the supreme
allied commander in Europe, said it
would take "just a very few days" to
line up the necessary forces to begin
a military operation. He has already
surveyed what he will need; now,
under the "activation warning." he
will be asking for specific commit-
A number of countries indicated
at yesterday's ministerial meeting
they would participate, according to
Slocombe None said they would

forced cable systems. networks and

The FCC's equal-employment rules
required broadcast companies to recruit
women and minorities into the job-can-

or quotas.
The rule, in place for nearly 30 Vears,
led to wins for blacks, Latinos and
Asians -who traditionally have been
underrepresented in broadcast as

In its decision in April. the L1

uiiconstitutional for the FCC to
require companies to recruit minori-
ties as job candidates. The recruiting
requirement, as it applies to women
is still in place because the case ques-
tioned recruiting on the basis of race,
not gender

was denied last xweek, representing the

FCC can appeal to the U.S, Supreme

Report touts science as economic key

WASHINGTON (AP) - Funding for scientific
research must be a high priority for Congress if'
the nation is to maintain its economic strength
and international competitixeness, according to a
House report released yesterday

"'this report does not go as far or reach as deeply

At Michigan State, the players could

Michigan State coach Nick Saban said
