Eosovo death toll increases

omats
GOLUBOVAC, Yugoslavia (AP) -
International pressure grew yesterday to stop the
war in Kosovo following the grisly discovery of
lbdies from one massacre and claims that 13
people were slain in another killing frenzy.
Accusing security forces of trying to wipe
out ethnic Albanians in the Yugoslav province
Kosovo, Britain called an emergency meet-
of the U.N. Security Council to condemn
the killings.
The latest allegations of massacres by Serb
police and the Yugoslav army came after diplo-
mats, journalists and human rights workers
saw as many as 18 mutilated bodies earlier this
Week in nearby Obrija (Oh-BREE-ya), includ-
)ing those of women and children.
Five miles to the south, residents of
lubovac said yesterday that Serb forces sur-
nded a pocket of refugees there last
,:Saturday and singled out the men to kill.
They said the victims were already buried,
but pointed to saucer-sized pools of dried
}blood and empty cartridges in front of a fence
where they said the refugees were shot.
"They pointed to the men and took them
'beside my house," said Naim Hodzaj, a 53-
year-old farmer in the village about 20 miles
west of Kosovo's capital Pristina. "They shot
them all."
The ethnic Albanians' Kosovo Information
rnter claimed late yesterday 18 more bodies
had been found nearby in the area around
Glogovac, showing clear signs of torture and

CLINTON
Continued from Page 1A
the panel, said in a letter to the ranking minority
member, Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) that bipar-
tisanship can be attained if the committee adheres
to standards set out in the early 1970s when the
committee was taking up the impeachment of
President Nixon.
Conyers was a member of that committee, and
Hyde noted in his letter that the Clinton resolu-
tion "follows the Watergate resolution word for
word."
Hyde also included a bar chart showing that all
five provisions afforded Clinton in the draft reso-
lution were also permitted for the Nixon White
House.
"I am hopeful," Hyde wrote, "that the draft will
continue the bipartisanship that we both want."
Clinton's defenders insist that his actions do not
constitute the "high crimes and misdemeanors"
set out as impeachable offenses in the
Constitution.
In a news conference, Conyers said he was
pleased Republicans included the "Watergate-
like" provisions for investigating Clinton.
However, Conyers and other Democrats still
want to place a strict time limit on the investiga-
tion. Conyers also renewed his complaint that
Republicans had rushed to release thousands of
pages from the report filed by Independent
Counsel Kenneth Starr.
And he insisted there are major differences

between Watergate and the current scandal.
"Watergate involved a wholesale corruption of
government, which extended through the FB, the
CIA and other federal agencies," he said. "Tiis
matter involves the concealing of a private affair
for which the vast majority of facts are already
known."
Conyers was seconded by the White House,
where spokesperson Mike McCurry said the two
scandals are completely different.
"The notion that there is any parallel is laugh-
able," McCurry said. "Look at the facts, look at
the sorry "long list of crimes committed,
Constitution subverted, that was Watergate."
McCurry also made light of Senate Majority
Leader Trent Lott (R-Miss.) who supported Nixon
during Watergate but said earlier this week that he
considered mere presidential "bad conduct.,
enough, frankly, for impeachment."
Joked McCurry: "Yeah, you know, bad table
manners is grounds for impeachment."
In another development yesterday, the General
Accounting Office announced that the cost of
Starr's investigations of Clinton's Whitewater
dealings, his relationship with Lewinsky and
other controversies has topped $40 million.
Starr has estimated that he spent at least $4.4
million on the Lewinsky investigation alone this
year.
The most expensive independent counsel probe
to date was Lawrence Walsh's $48.5 million, six-
year investigation of the Reagan administration's
Iran-Contra dealings.

three shot in the back of the head. The claim
could not be confirmed, and it was possible it
referred to the Golubovac site.
Britain and Austria called yesterday for an
international investigation into what Austrian
Foreign Minister Wolfgang Schuessel called
the "bestial" massacre at Obrija, which the
Serbs call Gornje Obrinje.
"This was not an act ofwar, it was plain cold
murder," British Foreign Secretary Robin
Cook said in calling later for the Security
Council meeting.
The mass killings last weekend in the
Drenica (DREY-neat-sah) region, where Serb-
led forces were on their latest offensive against
ethnic Albanian rebels, are among the most
gruesome developments reported in eight

months of all-out fighting. The Serbs are trying
to crush the Kosovo Liberation Army, which is
seeking independence for Kosovo, where the
population is 90 percent ethnic Albanian.
There was no way to corroborate the ethnic
Albanians' accounts. Both sides have been
accused of massacres in Kosovo, and Serb
police denied responsibility for the killings in
Obrija.
The government's Tanjug news agency
called Western reports a "media farce," and
said the Obrija killing was staged to generate
more pressure on Serbia, the main republic in
Yugoslavia.
Serb authorities promised earlier this week
that troops would retreat to their barracks after
claiming victory over the KLA.

Report: Not enough veggies

ATLANTA (AP) -- A study says Americans are
eating almost 20 percent more vegetables than
they did a quarter-century ago, but many of the
veggies aren't green or leafy - they're deep-fried.
Twenty-five percent of the vegetables consumed
by Americans are french fries, according to Susan
Krebs-Smith, author of a study in today's edition
of the journal Cancer.
The study said Americans have improved their
diets since the early 1970s but need to eat even
better to help reduce their cancer risk.

"That's definitely not broccoli we're chewing
down on" said Karen. Collins, a dietitian and con-
sultant for the American Institute for Cancer
Research. "In Americans' minds, if a sandwich isn't
enough, what do you add? Who would think you
add some stir-fry vegetables or a piece of fruit?"
Krebs-Smith, a research nutritionist with the
National Cancer Institute, said the explosion of
fast-food joints makes potatoes - especially in
the form of french fries - the vegetable people eat
most.
