Quad room.
Thousands of pornographic
images were stored on his computer,
many of them of children in explicit
sexual situations, said DPS Lt.
Wesley Skowron.
Bruns was arrested March 18 by
DPS Sgt. Kevin McNulty and
released after arraignment.
OPS was informed by the Florida
Buteau of Investigations early last
month that an individual using
University Internet access was trad-
itg child pornography via an
liternet chat relay, Skowron said.
The Florida authorities regularly
iionitor Internet activities to catch
traffic in child pornography.
:Skowron said Information
Technology Division officials
tracked down Bruns and that he was
till logged on to the relay chat at
the time of his arrest.

Skowron said Bruns has been
trading and downloading pornogra-
phy since at least late January,
receiving as many as a few hundred
inquiries a day from others eager to
trade child pornography.
Skowron said DPS does not view
the trading of child pornography as a
serious problem on campus.
"I think this is an isolated incident
as far as child pornography,"
Skowron said. "We have no indica-
tions that there is a network at the
University spokesperson Julie
Peterson said the University has not
been informed of Bruns' decision to
drop out.
"As far as I know, he's still
enrolled," Peterson said.
If convicted of distributing child
pornography, Bruns could face up to
seven years in prison and a $50,000

don't like the way they're treated and
we have a long memory about these
kinds of things."
NATO earlier said the soldiers were
in Macedonia, about three miles from
the Yugoslav border, when they report-
ed being surrounded and under small
arms fire before losing radio contact.
President Clinton said the United
States will hold Milosevic responsible
for the safety of the three.
Yugoslav Deputy Prime Minister
Vuk Draskovic told the British
Broadcasting Corp. the soldiers would
be treated in compliance with the
Geneva Convention on war prisoners.
Rubin said that the soldiers' abduc-
tion was illegal, and added that a mili-
tary trial would violate international

A State Department official who
spoke on condition of anonymity said
that under a protocol of the Geneva
Convention, prisoners of war cannot be
tried for their military functions unless
they commit a war crime.
But the U.S. Senate never ratified the
relevant protocol, according to the offi-
cial, creating a possible loophole
through which the Yugoslavs could
order a trial. And the Pentagon has so
far not decided whether the soldiers
qualify as prisoners of war.
In Belgrade, Milosevic met with eth-
nic Albanian leader Ibrahim Rugova,
who called for peace. But the Yugoslav
leader remained defiant, saying his
country "is leading a just battle, defend-
ing its citizens ... and will never give up
its land and freedom."
The meeting with Rugova was
denounced by other ethnic Albanian
leaders, but it was not clear whether he
was speaking freely.

sports the Board of Intercollegiate
Athletics gave varsity status last week.
The initial start up costs of the two
sports is projected to be $215,000,
increasing in five years to $1.25 million
each year. Athletic officials are currently
making adjustments to the department's
budget to accommodate ticket price
But Madej said with budget cuts the
department will have to make some
funding changes.
"There will have to be some restruc-
turing," Madej said. "We'll probably
have to hold off on spending"
Madej said athletic officials have not
begun discussions on any future ticket
price increases.
"Costs are always increasing' Goss
Madej said season ticket renewal
forms should be mailed out by next week
and will have a message informing tick-
et holders of the decrease.

videotape he shot before his jet cut an
Italian gondola cable, killing 20 people.
"I wish I had left it there. The video-

mishap," Capt. Joseph Schweitzer, who
was the jet's navigator, testified at his
sentencing hearing.
Schweitzer could receive up to 10
years in prison after pleading guilty to

Researchers develop cell for bones
WASHINGTON - Researchers have isolated from adult bone marrow a master
cell that can be directed to grow bone or cartilage, a laboratory feat that experts cal a
major step toward learning to make replacement parts for ailing or aged bodies.
The researchers at Osiris Therapeutics in Baltimore report in the journal Science
that they isolated a single cell, called a mesenchymal stem cell, and then grew it int
a colony of more than a million cells that could be induced to produce bone, cartilagw
or fat.
Other experts in the rapidly expanding field of stem cell research applauded the
"The fact that they can (isolate) a precursor cell like that, and direct it to produce
specific cell types, is quite an advance," said James Thomson of the University of
Wisconsin, a noted pioneer in stem cell research. "It may be that such cells can even-
tually be used for therapy and that would be quite exciting."
Stem cells are the body's building blocks. Some, such as pluripotent stem cells,
come only from embryos and their use in research is opposed by many people. Other
stem cells, such as the mesenchymal cells used by Osiris, are produced in adults.
But only the pluripotent stem cells from embryos are thought to be capable of g
ing into any tissue in the body. The mesenchymal stem cells are the parent lines

Chinese leader to
make U.S. visit
BEIJING - The Foreign Ministry
declined to provide details yesterday
about Premier Zhu Rongji's scheduled
trip to the United States next week, a
dramatic indication of a debate on the
wisdom of the summit among senior
Chinese leaders.
Foreign Ministry spokesperson Sun
Yuxi said he had "nothing to add" to
earlier statements that Zhu would trav-
el to the United States this month. The
White House has announced that Zhu
will arrive April 6 and visit several U.S.
cities. The visit is part of an effort to
improve ties between Chinese and U.S.
The Foreign Ministry's silence is one
of several indications that China's leader-
ship is debating the wisdom of sending
Zhu to the United States. The prime min-
ister wants to make the trip, one Chinese
source said, but other, more conservative
elements in China are using the NATO
airstrikes against Yugoslavia as an excuse

to raise questions about his journey.
Meanwhile, Commerce Secretary
William Daley, in China on an offitial
trip, said he saw no reason to worry.
"I've not heard any speculation ..*
to any chance that (the trip) would be
canceled or postponed," Daley told' a
