The similarities between this year's

DAYTON, Ohio -After 21 days of
marathon negotiations, the United States
yesterday announced an agreement end-
ing four years of war in the former
Yugoslavia and called for deployment
of a NATO force that would include up
to 25,000 U.S. troops.
"The people of Bosnia finally have a
chance to turn from the horror of war to
the promise of peace," President Clinton
declared in a Rose Garden announce-
ment of the accord.
Clinton said the leaders of Bosnia,
Croatia and Serbia have "made a seri-
ous commitment to peace" and "we
must help them to make it work."
The accord divides Bosnia close to
current cease-fire lines, with 5 1 percent
going to the internationally recognized
government and 49 percent to the
Bosnian Serbs, whose two leaders have
been indicted for genocide and crimes
Bosnian Serbs will have to abandon
their control over parts of downtown
Sarajevo, the capital, and the city will
be united with the apparent exception
of the Bosnian Serb "capital" of Pale,
which is 10 miles away.
But both sides will maintain their
own armies. The accords propose to
reduce the Bosnian Serbs' military su-
periority through arms-control mea-
sures. If that doesn't work, the Clinton
administration has said it will train and
equip the Bosnian government army to
ensure a balance.
Signature of the accord will lead to
suspension of economic 'sanctions
against Serbia, widely blamed for insti-
gating the war, and to a lifting of the
arms embargo against the Bosnian gov-
ernment that crippled its ability to de-
fend itself. The accord also calls for the
return of refugees and displaced per-
sons - some 2.2 million people - to
their homes of origin, although it does
not provide for enforcement or give
guarantees for their safety.
The U.N. Security Council was meet-
ing last night to discuss the economic
sanctions and the arms embargo. A vote
on all the proposals could come as early
as today, according to diplomats who
spoke on condition of anonymity.
The accords also require all states in
the region to cooperate with The Hague
War Crimes Tribunal, although the only
means ofenforcement is economic sanc-
tions that could block the participation
of any state in international economic
and political institutions.

was more somber as he explained an
accord that is likely to arouse criticism
at home. "This may not be a just peace,
but it is more just than the continuation
of the war," he said after initialing the
Serbian President Slobodan
Milosevic suggested that no one had
won the war, and that no one was re-
sponsible for it.
"Ina civil war like this one in Bosnia-
Herzegovina, there are no winners, and
there could be no winners," he said.
"All are losers." He said all sides had
made "painful concessions" but, with-
out them, "peace would be impossible."
But questions arose immediately
about the intentions of the parties, start-
ing with the Bosnian Serb leaders who
failed to sign off on the documents or to
appear at the final initialing ceremony.

Under its contract with universities across the nation -
including the University of Michigan - Nike reaped $50
million last year for marketing apparel like the maize and
blue, The Washington Post reported yesterday.
Sources quoted in the Post said the shoe giant's financial
muscle compromises athletic departments' autonomy and
tempts athletes to leave school early - charges Nike is
Some of Nike's profits stem from the Michigan Athletic
Department's contract to market University apparel in ex-
change for $7.2 million in equipment, supplies and scholar-
ship money for all 23 varsity teams over the next six years.
Nike spokesman Erin Patton criticized the Post's coverage
of Nike's collegiate athletic contracts. He said the report
focused too much on Nike's profits and -not on what the
programs are designed to accomplish.
"We tend to keep the focus on the benefit to the universities,
not to the company," Patton said. "What we give benefits
universities and athletic departments. The benefits (to universi-
ties) are negated in (coverage of) big money numbers."
Patton said Nike is committed to teams and athletes. He
said some sports programs that tend not to bring in large
crowds might be cut withoutaNike's financial support.
"We want to give back to all sports," he said.
