Milosevic held in Balkan prison

BELGRADE, Yugoslavia (AP) - Yugoslav
authorities ordered a haggard Slobodan Milosevic
held for 30 days as they considered the evidence
behind charges of corruption and abuse of power
stemming from his ruinous 13-year rule.
The former president surrendered before dawn yes-
terday, ending a chaotic 26-hour armed standoff dur-
ing which he reportedly brandished a pistol and
threatened to kill himself and members of his family.
Milosevic pleaded innocent and was appealing the
'!detention order, said his lawyer, Toma Fila. "He
'dcided to defend himself. He will speak up and tell
the truth," Fila said.
Despite months of international pressure to have
him extradited to the U.N. war crimes tribunal,
which indicted him for crimes against humanity
after his brutal crackdown on ethnic Albanians in
Kosovo in 1999, officials insisted he first would be
tried at home for ruining the country. But they held
'"Ot the possibility of a later trial by the tribunal in

The Hague, Netherlands.
"We are expecting him soon. It will be Milosevic
in The Hague in 2001," tribunal spokeswoman Flo-
rence Hartmann said yesterday. Another spokesman,
Jim Landale, said Yugoslavia had a "binding obliga-
tion" to turn him over.
Bundled into a police car, Milosevic was brought
to Belgrade's Central Prison early yesterday. Local
television showed the iron gates sliding shut behind
During the preceding standoff, Milosevic's loyal
bodyguards - who barricaded themselves in his lux-
ury villa - had sprayed gunfire at police charging
the compound Saturday. Police regrouped and the
government sent in negotiators to persuade Milosevic
to give himself up and avoid a bloody confrontation.
Outside, hundreds of his supporters gathered to taunt
police with screams of "Slobo! Slobo!"
As police pulled on woolen masks early yesterday
in an apparent preparation for a second assault, a con-

voy of vehicles suddenly sped through the villa gates.
Word came soon after that Milosevic had surrendered
- but not before displaying a gun during the night-
long negotiations and pledging at one point to die
rather than be taken, according to an account by the
Serbian interior minister, Dusan Mihajlovic.
Just before he was whisked away, his 32-year-old
daughter, Marija, fired several gunshots. A police
official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said she
was apparently aiming at a government negotiator.
There were no injuries.
Justice officials said Milosevic - who as president
enjoyed unrivaled deference and luxury - would be
treated no better than any other prisoner.
"He has his own room," said Vladan Batic, justice
minister of Serbia, the dominant Yugoslav republic.
"He will be given food, allowed visitors, to have
his own clothes and footwear, money, books, newspa-
pers. He will not be subjected to any kind of physical
harassment, no psychological pressure."

POW wow
Continued from Page IA
"Next weekend will be Kalama-
zoo, but this is one of the biggest
ones so everyone comes here," Hop-
kins said.
Hopkins said she used non-com-
petitive pow wows to practice her
dancing for the weekend.
"It helps you get better so you can
dance a little better and learn new
steps," she said, adding that she did-
n't compete for the prize money. "I

just like to keep my heritage alive."
Goetz, an Engineering senior, said
many of the dancers make a living
traveling to different pow wows. The
dancers earn points based on the
quality of their dancing, and those
with the highest points earn a spot at
the world championships.
The competition isn't the only sig-
nificant part of the pow wow.
"Students here don't really have a
cultural outlet, and this gives students
a time to come together. It's where
we regroup," said Goetz. "The social

aspect of it is really important."
Modern pow wows evolved from
the Grass Dance Societies in the
1800s, when warriors reenacted bat-
tles and brave deeds for the rest of
the tribe.
Another major part of the pow
wow are the vendors surrounding the
arena, selling American Indian crafts
like moccasins, beaded jewelry and
dolls. Prices for the crafts ranged
from S3 bracelets to S2,400 wood
Despite the variety of displays,

most of the interest still focused on
the dancing in the court.
"I've been here all weekend, and
I've been coming here since I was
little. The Grand Entry is probably
the best part because all the dancers
come out in full dress," said Fox.
For the students from NASA
involved in organizing the event,
there was a sigh of relief seeing the
dancers in the middle of the court.
"The first Grand Entry is the best
part because it's just a sign of it
going off smoothly," said Goetz.

Senate to vote on finance reform bill
Senators from both parties predicted yesterday they will pass C'mpaign
finance reform while opponents held out hope of derailing it if the House"
Senate must compromise between competing versions of the legislation.
If the Senate passes the bill today, as expected, the House then could rejet r
go along with the Senate version word-for-word, or pass its own measure. Th'e la
option was seen as mostly likely, lawmakers said yesterday.
In that case, a small number of senators and House members would be appoint
ed to a conference committee that would work to resolve differences in the t
versions and send a compromise back to both chambers for passage. Those nego-
tiations may offer an opening for foes of the legislation.
"Clearly the conference ... is a time to negotiate with the (Bush) administtation
and see if we can come up with a bill that actually improves the system,"cn
Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), a leading Senate opponent, told "Fox News Sunday'
President Bush has been circumspect about whether he would sign the bil to
law. He said last week that he would sign any legislation that "improves thes-
tem" now in place.
McConnell already has said that if the bill passes Congress, he plans a lawsuit
to challenge it as an unconstitutivtal infringement on the right to free speech.
U.S. and Chinese military aircrafts collide
China blamed the U.S. for yesterday's collision between a U.S. Navy sureil-
lance plane and a Chinese fighter jet over the South China Sea, but the conxnn-
der of U.S. Pacific military forces sharply criticized China for "aggressive" i -s
in intercepting U.S. planes.
The American EP-3 plane landed at a military airfield on the island of Hainan,
and China assured the United States that the 24 crewmembers were safe. Aneri-
can diplomats were going to Hainan to see them, said U.S. Ambassador Joseph
Prucher, and the U.S. Pacific Comsmand asked for the return of the crew and air-

"The U.S. side has total responsibility for this event," the Chinese Foreign Mki-
