TION/WORLD

WASHINGTON (AP) - Bringing the Kosovo con-
flict closer to home, U.S. military reservists are likely to
be ordered to active duty as part of a buildup ofAmerican
air power in the Balkans, officials said yesterday.
Several hundred Air National Guard members who
already are participating as volunteers probably will
not be enough to support the 300 additional planes
expected to be sent to Europe in the days ahead.
"There will likely be a reserve call-up," Pentagon
spokesperson Kenneth Bacon said. "The details aren't
ready to be announced at this stage," including how
many would be called, how soon, and for what tasks.
Defense Secretary William Cohen and other U.S.
officials in recent days hinted at the likelihood of a
partial mobilization of the National Guard and
Reserve, and that was before Army Gen. Wesley

Clark, the top NATO commander, submitted his
request Monday for a more than 50 percent increase in
U.S. warplanes. Many of the additional planes, such as
aerial refuelers, are the type flown by reservists.
Pentagon officials speaking on condition of
anonymity said Cohen was expected to approve most
or all of Clark's request.
Cohen said Sunday that a mobilization of reserves
is "certainly something we would recommend to the
president" if the mission were expanded beyond what
active duty forces and reservist volunteers could han-
dle. There currently are about 22,000 active-duty U.S.
forces involved in the operation.
Members of the National Guard and Reserve
already are participating in military operations in the
Persian Gulf and in Bosnia as part of separate nresi-

yes to duty
dential call-ups. Two Air Guard F-15 wings, for exam-
ple, are stationed at Incirlik Air Base in Turkey to help
enforce a no-fly zone over northern Iraq.
The biggest mobilization of reservists in recent
times was the 1991 Gulf War, when about 230,000 cit-
izen soldiers from the Army, Air Force, Navy and
Marine Corps were called to active duty.
In addition to reservists needed in connection
with a buildup of U.S. air power in the Balkans,
the Army may need to mobilize some National
Guard and Reserve members as part of Task Force
Hawk, the contingent of Apache attack helicopters
and surface-to-surface missiles being assembled
in Albania. The Apaches are intended as extra fire-
power against Serb tanks and other armored forces
in Kosovo.

AROUND THE NATION
Weather prompts Florida to declare emergency
Florida Gov. Jeb Bush declared a state of emergency yesterday as windy, div
weather raised the threat of wildfires across the Southeast, where flames lpye
blackened thousands of acres of forest and brush.
Residents of 60 homes near Wilkesboro in western North Carolina remained
under an evacuation order yesterday because of the state's largest fire, which had
burned 600 acres. The blaze was 75 percent contained.
The declaration by Bush allows the National Guard to help firefighters, and tA
Blackhawk helicopters were immediately put to work dumping water on fires in
Hillsborough and Polk counties.
National Guard helicopters also fought fires in Tennessee during the weekend.
Tennessee Gov. Don Sundquist asked the Federal Emergency Management Agency
for help, and all outdoor burning permits were suspended.
Bush noted that an index of fire potential calculated by Florida's Divisionof
Forestry was above 600 - on a scale where 400 denotes significant danger.
Humidity dropped to as low as 20 percent.
"We are in a red-alert day," said Fire Services Deputy Chief Frank Po .
"We're in very dangerous, high-burn conditions."
Brush fires in central Florida on Monday blackened at least 1,400 acres#
destroyed three houses. Weekend fires in southern Florida burned hundreds
acres of brush and grass southwest of Miami.

Don Ferris, Schmidt's attorney,
said he believes his client's sentence
is fair, but said the charge accusing
Schmidt of violating the host law
was a weak argument. "The judge
indicated that she wasn't sure that
the prosecutor could prove" that
Schmidt had allowed minors to drink
at a party, Ferris said.
Of the ten Phi Delta Theta members
facing charges, two others - LSA

junior Daniel Davis and LSA sopho-
more Josh Shapiro - are scheduled to
begin their trials June 25.
LSA sophomores Michael Halper,
Mike Novick, Jared Fishman and
Evan Frank, also former members of
Phi Delta Theta, faced their charges
at pretrial proceedings yesterday.
"I'm glad that they have acknowl-
edged their guilt," said George
Cantor, Courtney Cantor's father.
"It's a harmful situation when you
have the sort of social drinking that
is sanctioned at an underage setting
on campus."

"It's a mixture of grassroots providers,
federal and state policy makers as well as
academics," Levin said. "It gives us a
chance to find out how it's working"
In addition to his role in the confer-
ence, Wellstone requested time
Saturday to speak with students in an
informal question and answer session.
College Democrats President Kelley
Boland said Wellstone is popular with
students because he has proven his
commitment to key issues.
"Heb a really good senator and he's
really good in the issues that affect us,"
Boland said. "He'd kind of like a RFK
(Robert Kennedy) of the nineties."
The College Democrats will be spon-
soring the forum, open to all students,
from 3:30 - 5 p.m. in the Kalamazoo
Room of the Michigan League.

evaluation"
The University is also scheduled
to file a summary judgment by May
3, as outlined in the schedule set by
Duggan. The University is required
to respond to CIR's motion, which
induces a series of responses and
legal brief exchanges.
If Duggan agrees with the summary
judgment, the two counsels will give an
oral argument and the judge will make
a ruling.
A Law professor who did not want
his name used said this type of motion
is "not an unusual practice."
"Generally they do not have a high
probability of success," he said.
"The general idea is 'we don't need
a trial."'
By filing the motion, the plaintiff is
saying "there are no facts that need to
be tried," he said. "We win, because it
shows there are nofacts"
The judge will probably hear
arguments and take some affidavits,
along with the briefs and docu-
ments already filed in the case, and
then make a decision, the professor
said.
If granted, the motion has no bear-
ing on future moves in the case, such
as an appeal.
Pell could not comment on a similar
case filed by CIR on behalf of a white
student denied admission to the
University Law School.
The success of the summary judg-
ment notion will not affect the law
school case because "they are separate
cases - one doesn't have a bearing on
the other," Pell said.

U.S. Corporations to
attend NATO bash
WASHINGTON - The NATO mili-
tary alliances upcoming 50th anniver-
sary bash could be the ultimate marketing
opportunity for some U.S. companies.
A handful oftop-drawer U.S. compa-
nies - including heavyweights such as
Ford Motor Co. and General Motors
Corp., as well as upstarts such as
Nextel Communications Inc., a
McLean, Va.-based wireless communi-
cations firm - will be the gathering's
hosts. As such, they'll get to showcase
their wares and schmooze with top mil-
itary and political leaders from 44
nations at events taking place through-
out the District.
A dozen companies have paid
$250,000 apiece in cash or "in-kind"
contributions to have their chief execu-
tives serve as directors of the NATO
summit's host committee. The group is a
private-sector support system raising $8
million to finance the April 23-25 event.
While company representatives
express disdain at the notion they will

be lobbying NATO officials for br4i-
ness, many firms on the host commit-
tee sell precisely the kinds of prodticts
most in demand by the emerging
economies of Eastern and Central
Europe -- which include NATO's
newest members and some prospect9
additions.
Gene defect links
Down's, Alzheimer's
A large genetic defect that burdens
people with an extra copy of chromo-
some 21 seems to explain a strange link
between Down syndrome and
Alzheimer's disease, scientists repot.
New studies indicate that people with
the memory-erasing brain disotde
Alzheimer's, are likely to have twice as
many cells that carry a surplus copy of
the chromosome, compared with people
who do not appear to be at risk for
Alzheimer's disease.
These so-called "mosaic individuals"
have a mixture of normal cells and
abnormal cells that carry the same defect
- an extra copy of chromosome 2V?.
as seen in Down syndrome.

Zimbabwe auctions
off 20 tons of ivory
HARARE, Zimbabwe -
Zimbabwe auctioned off its full quota
of 20 tons of elephant ivory yesterday
in the world's second ivory sale in a
decade.
The 18 Japanese buyers and their
assistants waved confidential bids
for tusks they had- inspected in a
wildlife department warehouse
Monday.
Whole tusks up for auction ranged
from 7 pounds to 65 pounds and were
being offered in lots of 1,100 pounds
under an experimental program to
resume ivory trade authorized by the
145-nation U.N. Convention on Trade
in Endangered Species.
The exact prices bid for the ivory
were being kept secret under the con-
vention's conditions for the sale, said
Jim Armstrong, CITES deputy secre-
tary general.
He said average prices will be pub-
licized within six months of the three
authorized ivory auctions - in

Zimbabwe, in Namibia last week,ad
another in Botswana next week.
When ivory trade was banned in
1989 to protect endangered elephant
herds from poaching, raw ivory ,s
for about $150 a pound.
Ivory sold in Namibia reportedly
fetched between $30 and $75 a pound,
depending on quality.
