KOSOVO
Continued from Page 1A
Sunday."
The alliance launched air attacks
March 24 to try to force Yugoslav
President Slobodan Milosevic to accept
a peace plan for the southern Serbian
province that would include NATO
peacekeeping troops on the ground.
Since then, the campaign by
Yugoslav security forces to rid
Kosovo its majority ethnic Albanians
has - overwhelmed Albania,
Macedonia and Yugoslavia's other
republic, Montenegro, with refugees.
NATO spokesperson Jamie Shea
said allied nations were offering to
take in some refugees temporarily
and provided the following figures -
Germany (40,000 refugees), the
United States (20,000), Turkey
(20,000), Norway (6,000), Greece
(5,000) and Canada (5,000).
Airlifts of some of the more than
100,000 refugees in Macedonia are
planned for today. Shea said relief
flights bringing aid to the capital,
Skopje, would ferry out refugees
when the planes returned to their
home nations. Macedonia said larger-
scale flights were to begin soon.
But EU Humanitarian Aid
Commissioner Emma Bonino ques-
tioned yesterday whether NATO
might be exacerbating the problem by
providing temporary shelter in coun-
tries as far away as the United States.
"We should not disperse people all
over," she told reporters. "We should
not cooperate in any way with ethnic
cleansing."

Secretary of State Madeleine
Albright said the United States would
aid the refugees, but only temporarily.
"We are going to try very hard to
share the burden" in dealing with the
refugee problem, Albright said on
NBC's "Meet the Press." While some
refugees may be airlifted out of the
region, she said "it's important for
them not to be too far away from
Kosovo so they can return."
NATO also agreed to use the nearly
12,000 NATO troops now deployed in
Macedonia to assist in the humanitar-
ian effort. Those troops originally
were deployed to implement the
Kosovo peace plan if it were accepted
by both sides.
Meanwhile, a Yugoslav official
said yesterday that the three U.S. sol-
diers captured last week would be
returned home when NATO's offen-
sive against Serbia comes to an end.
Speaking on the ABC program,
"This Week," Belgrade's deputy mayor,
Milan Bozic, said the three captured
U.S. soldiers would not face trial.
"Of course they will not be tried
and they will be back in their homes
as soon as this stupidity stops," he
said.
Yugoslav Foreign Minister Zivadin
Jovanovic on Saturday called the
three soldiers prisoners of war. It is
the most authoritative Yugoslav refer-
ence to date to the term that confers
on the soldiers protected status under
the Geneva Conventions on the con-
duct of war.
U.S. officials noted that the strictly
limits any trials that can be conducted
against the three.

Hog farm to be
built near tribal land

The Washington Post
What eventually will become the
third-largest hog farm in the world is ris-
ing on tribal trust land near a remote
Indian reservation in South Dakota in
spite of strong opposition by the federal
government, environmentalists, animal
rights activists and a coalition of tribal
members and other local residents.
Work is underway on cavernous
feeding barns for the $105 million
facility, which is designed to house
859,000 hogs near the Rosebud Sioux
Reservation.
The work resumed last month after a

federal judge accused the federal zov«
emnment's top Indian official of ahusing
his discretionary powers and acting in
an "arbitrary and capricious" manner
when he ordered work stopped on envi-
ronmental grounds.
Kevin Gover, assistant interior sec-
retary for Indian affairs, may have.
engaged in "affirmative mnisconduct~
when he unilaterally voided a lease
between Rosebud tribal leaders and a
Nebraska-based pork company for
the hog operation, said U.S. District
Judge Charles Kornmann of Pierre.

LSA senior Tim Mygatt gives a short speech Friday to a crowd in front of the
Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library during the Good Friday Rally.

EASTER
t ntinued from Page 1A
ally on the Diag. Good Friday is
the day Christians commemorate the
death of Jesus Christ on the cross to
atone for human sins.
The rally's purpose was "to bring
everyone together to celebrate the
death, burial and resurrection of
Jesus Christ and to celebrate what
this means for our lives," said LSA
senior Bethany Crowley, the event's
coordinator.
loSingers, dancers and speakers, who
used the Harlan Hatcher Graduate
Library stairs as a stage, stressed that
the rally was not simply a one-day cel-
ebration. It was a way to demonstrate
"why we celebrate, not just today and
(Easter) Sunday, but every day of our
lives" said LSA senior PaoLin Chi,
one of the speakers.
The public display of faith had the
eking of many campus sponsors
cluding the Chi Alpha Christian
Fellowship, Chinese Christian
Fellowship, Christian Challenge,
Good News, InterVarsity Christian
Fellowship, Korean Campus Crusade
for Christ and Worship Warriors.
Easter Sunday also marks the final
day of Lent, a period of 46 days -
Sundays included - that is meant to.
represent the 40 days of spiritual
reflection that Jesus spent in the
Olderness before beginning his
ministry. During the Lenten season,
many Christians make a special indi-
vidual commitment to their faith.

LSA junior Tom Litchford gave up
drinking soda pop.
"I drank too much of it and
thought it would be a good thing to
give up," Litchford said, adding that
"it was difficult at times."
Nursing junior Marie Delafuente
said she gave up her favorite food,
but added that Lent is not just about
sacrificing. A person "can also make
extra commitments to God."
Delafuente said she did this by
memorizing bible verses and not
studying on Sundays so she could
give the day to God.
Many students said they see the
holiday weekend as a wonderful
opportunity to spend time with fam-
ily and friends.
"I'm going to color Easter eggs at
my grandma's house," Engineering
senior Mike Mollen said.
LSA senior Jennifer Hubers said
she was "spending Easter with her
family." Hubers said she planned to
attend a sunrise church service and
then go to brunch with some family
friends.
Dan Trepod, an LSA first-year stu-
dent, said he would spend the week-
end at home in East Lansing but, he
said, unfortunately his family would-
n't be there.
Trepod added that his house would
not be empty'though. Friends and
fellow members of Campus Crusade
for Christ joined him Saturday
evening for a "praise and prayer" as
a way for them "to give thanks to
God," he said.

ASHKENAZ-I JEWISH FAMILIE
are needed to participate in an important
research study to understand the biological causes of
Schizophrenia and Bipolar Disorder
Environmental and genetic factors are believed to play a role in these disorders. There is no
evidence that schizophrenia and bipolar disorder occur more frequently among the Jewish
population. However, Ashkenazi Jewish families provide unique opportunities for genetic
studies because they have evolved from a limited number of ancestors and tend to marry
within their faith. It is our hope that with a clearer understanding of the biological basis of
these illnesses, new medications will be developed, preventative measures will be identified,
and the stigma associated with mental disorders will be eliminated.
