NATO bombing
begins in Kosovo

Gunderson's lecture
praised by students

KOSOVO
Continued from Page 1A
Montenegro's pro-Western
leader, Milo Djukanovic, blamed
Yugoslav President Slobodon
Milosevic for the attacks, calling
them "the tragic consequences of
an irrational policy of confronta-
tion with the entire world."
The central Serbian town of
Kragujevac, a major military-
industrial center, was plunged into
darkness early this morning after
one heavy explosion was heard, the
private news agency Beta reported.
Reporters were not immediately
able to get to the targets to examine
the effects of the strikes. The center
of Belgrade was quiet and unhit,
and state-media reported early
today that the air alert had been
called off.
But at least four more cruise
I missiles were later fired from two
U.S. ships in the Adriatic Sea, the
first from the vessels since the
attack began six hours earlier.
NATO bombing targets were
spread throughout the country. In
Kosovo, the targets appeared to be
at least 15 miles from Pristina, in
r

areas where it is dangerous to trav-
el at night.
During the bombardment, about
30 foreign journalists on the roof
of the Hyatt Hotel in Belgrade
were detained by police. All but
one were later released. CNN said
those detained included four of its
producers and photographers.
Explosions also were heard in
the area of Novi Sad in northern
Serbia, northwest of Belgrade.
Television footage from the town
showed debris on a road outside a
damaged police station, and
beyond it flames consuming
wreckage and casting an orange
glow in the sky.
In Belgrade, many military-age
men left their homes, spending ~the
night with friends to avoid the draft.
"This is serious, but I don't want
to be killed without knowing why,"
said Filp Pavicevic as he packed
his bag to take refuge in another
apartment.
Scores of cruise missiles and
one-ton bombs were fired at
Yugoslav targets. Dozens of war-
planes were used, including six
U.S. B-52 bombers and two B-2
stealth bombers.

subject infectious," said history
Prof. Sidney Fine, the 1993 Golden
Apple Award recipient.
"As a teacher we should be a
model for our students," Gunderson
said, adding that through her teach-
ing, she is able to "touch the lives
of students so they can discover
their own gifts and put them to
good use."
Gunderson said she tries to make
statistics fun by relating it to real
life, following the model of "less
symbols and more words."
She used examples as varied as
diagnostic drug testing and the pro-
portion of adults who "surf the net"
on a daily basis, to illustrate the art
of statistics in real-life applica-
tions.
"Her speech was very indicative
of the way that she teaches ... every
time she speaks you can tell she
really cares about what she's teach-
ing," said Adam Tobias, an LSA
junior and a current studept of
Gunderson's.

"She takes an otherwise unexcit-
ing topic and makes it easy to listen
to," he said.
The presentation, organized by
Students Honoring Outstanding
University Teaching, was the culmi-
nation of a campus-wide nomina-
tion and selection process that
began in September.
Stephanie Lovinger, chair of the
SHOUT committee, said she was
pleased with the final product. "We
had a great group here tonight, a
great audience who was lively and
engaged," Lovinger said, adding, of
the lecture, "I loved it. I thought it
was very entertaining while getting
a great message across."
"She makes students want to
learn stats," said Kristie
Diefenbaker, an LSA senior and
statistics concentrator.
Gunderson's lecture ended with
her performance of a song, a solo
guitar routine that included the
message, "use what gifts and tal-
ents you possess." As the 1999
Golden Apple Award recipient,
Gunderson was honored for doing
just that.

The war in Kosovo: hy are they fighting?
Yesterday NATO initiated an airs rike against the Serbian Yugoslav
government by bombing the Yugosi province of Kosovo. NATO hopes
to end the oppression of the ethnic lbanians who populate Kosovo.
Here are thesissues:
Yugoslav Serbs, fighting for cont I of Kosovo:
Much history of the Serbian Or hodox Church is in Kosovo.
Ethnic Albanians compose a 4iority of the population in
Yugoslavia. .
The majority of ethnic Albanians practice the religion of Islam.

1 Ethnic Albanians compose 90 porcent of Kosovo's 2 million
people.
The majority of the 2,000 peoplq killed during the past year have
.been ethnic Albanians.
Sources estimate 25,000 ethniciAlbanians have been forced from
their homes by Yugoslavian troops in the last several days.
Mass killing, rape and homelessness has been forced on the
people of Kosovo.

What is NATO
bombing?
Early reports from the
NATO secretary-general
said the airstrikes in
Yugoslavia hit various
targets,including army
bases and garrisons and
naval bases. Cruise
missiles and B-52 bombers
were the main American
contribution to the first
set of raids, which could
continue for the next few
days. In addition to these
weapons, the U.S. unveiled
for the first time the B-2
bomber, with its stealth
capabilities, making
bombing runs into the
Baltic state. Two Yugoslav
MiGs were also shot down
during the fighting last
night, according to NATO
officials.
