PALE, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) -
Rebel Serb leaders demanded interna-
tional protection yesterday for Serb-
held parts of Sarajevo, whereresidents'

Ohio, would unify the capital under the

120,000 Serbs, however, fear for their
homes and future if they come under
government control.
Serbs in Sarajevo demonstrated for
the third straight day yesterday to pro-
test the accord, and rebel leader Radovan
Karadzic called for protection for the
city's Serbs while the peace terms are
"A new solution for Sarajevo must be
found," Karadzic told Bosnian Serb

of the capital.
"Until a new solution is found, it is
the international community's duty to
protect Serbs in Sarajevo," he said, add-
ing that in the meantime, Serbs would
not withdraw their troops as foreseen
under the Dayton accord.
Karadzic has urged the Bosnian Serb
assembly to accept the peace accord,
but he is under pressure to get the terms
for Sarajevo changed. Despite govern-
ment assurances that they can remain in
their homes without fear for their safety,

The chances for changes in the ac-
cord are slim. The Bosnian government
is unlikely to agree to any renegotia-
tion, having won its key demand that
Sarajevo be united under its control.
And U.S. Assistant Secretary of State
Richard Holbrooke, the chief Ameri-
can negotiator, ruled out any changes to
the plan, which is to be signed in Paris
next month.
"Dayton was an initialing. Paris will
be a signing. There will be no change
between Dayton and Paris," Holbrooke

said on NBC's "Meet the Press."
In the Serb-held suburb of Ilidza,
about 1,000 women, dressed in black,
gathered at the cemetery to protest the
peace accord, chanting, "Slobo, come
here and count our dead" in a reference
to Serbian President Slobodan
Milosevic, who many feel betrayed the
Bosnian Serbs in the Dayton peace talks.
Thousands of Serbs demonstrated in
their Sarajevo districts over the week-
end, vowing never to leave their homes
or submit to government authority.
Yesterday, the Bosnian Serb news
agency SRNA reported that a 63-year-
old man, identified as Mihajlo
Crnogorac, shot himself in the head in
the Serb-held Sarajevo district of
Grbavica. Terming his death "the first
victim ofthe Dayton agreement," SRNA
said he left a note saying his suicide was
to protest the accord.

Michigan is
Roses for
By Antoine Pitts
Daily Sports Editor
Ohio State came to Michigan Sta-
dium undefeated for the second time in
a row Saturday, needing a win to reach
the Rose Bowl.
For the second consecutive time, the
Buckeyes left Ann Arbor on the losing
end of the score.
Behind 313 rushing yards from
Tshimanga Biakabutuka, Michigan (5-3
Big Ten, 9-3 overall) handed Ohio State
(7-1, ll-l)a31-23 defeat before 106,288
spectators at Michigan Stadium.
The Wolverines will now head to the
Alamo Bowl on Dec. 28 in San Antonio,
Texas. They will face the loser of
.Saturday's Texas-Texas A&M matchup.
The loss kept the Buckeyes from going
to Pasadena for the first time since 1985,
and allows Northwestern to go to the Rose
Bowl for the first time since 1949.
"I'm tremendously disappointed,"
Ohio State coach John Cooper said. "I
don't know if I've ever been as disap-
pointed as I am right now."
A Biakabutuka touchdown put Michi-
gan up 31-15 with 7:55 to play.
The Buckeyes managed one more
score, but turned the ball over on their
last possession of the game.
Charles Woodson's interception at the
Michigan 13-yard line with less than a
minute to go sealed Ohio State's fate.
"It's been a long season and I can't
think of a better way to end than what
these kids did this afternoon," Michi-
gan coach Lloyd Carr said. "It was a
tremendous effort by an unbelievable
group of kids."

'U' health
care merger
The Associated Press
A proposed merger between the Uni-
versity Medical Center and three large
Catholic health care organizations was
scuttled after the parties could not agree
on a time line.
University Hospitals signed a memo-
randum of understanding and began
talks in May with Mission Health and
its two parent organizations, the Sisters
of Mercy Health Services and Daugh-
ters of Charity Health System.
The University Medical Center was
to merge with Mission Health's four
hospitals -St. Joseph Mercy in Saline,
McPherson in Howell and Providence
in Southfield. The University also was
negotiating to merge its M-CARE health
maintenance organization with the Sis-
ters of Mercy's Care Choices to form a
joint pre-paid health insurance organi-
John D. Forsyth, executive director
of the University Medical Center, said
in May that the move would mean a
broader geographic accessibility for the
University, and could create a state-
wide delivery system.
Daughters ofCharity'snot-for-profit
health care system includes hospitals in
50 cities nationwide. The Sisters of
Mercy network includes 12 hospitals in
But by last Monday, the heads of the
four organizations had agreed there was
no way to bridge their differences.
A formal statement said "the par-
ties were unable to agree on an ap-
proach to achieve full integration,"
but left open the door for future col-
Task forces had been wrestling with
several broad areas over the six months
of discussions. Many felt that the issues
of birth control and abortion would be a
source of contention.
Forsyth said in May that he felt the
University could overcome the ideo-
logical differences that might emerge
between University Hospitals and the
Catholic health care organizations.
"I think it is an issue. The merging of
the Catholic ethical issues and a public
university will have to be addressed.
But there have been Catholic hospitals
in the past that have successfully merged
with universities," he said.
But neither that, nor question of who
would control the merged operations,
threatened the deal, the sides agreed.
The issue, they said, was the
University's demand for an immediate
merger. Mission Health and its owners
believed a gradual approach over three
to five years was more prudent.
"We believed that the only way to get
the full economic benefit was through
complete operational merger," said
Kenneth Trester, the University Medi-
cal Center's director of planning and
marketing. "Others did not share that
Brian Conolly, president and chief
executive officer of Mission Health,
said he and the leaders of the two other
Catholic health care systems were in-
sistent about the longer time frame,
citing that they have "more experience
in integration than almost anyone in the
One issue not addressed was how

patient referrals would have been gov-
erned - a key part of the University's
desire for a merger. For example, St.
Joseph, the flagship hospital of the
Mercy system, specializes in the same
kind of high-tech, complex procedures
from which the university makes most
of its money.
A briefing document prepared for the
University Board of Regents said the
Medical Center needs affiliation and
patient referral agreements covering 2
million Michigan residents to prosper
over the long term.
The deal's collapse means the Uni-
versity will begin looking for other po-

WASHINGTON (AP) - One of ev-
ery 92 American men ages 27 to 39 may
be battling the AIDS virus, according to
the most precise new estimates yet of
the epidemic's toll.
Minorities are especially hard hit,
with one of every 33 young black men
estimated to be infected in 1993, ac-
cording to a report published Friday in
the journal Science. The 1993 data are
the latest available.
If the trend continues, "the threat of
AIDS may become a rite of passage"
for young people, said study author
Philip Rosenberg, a researcher for the
National Cancer Institute.
The government already has warned

Minorities, men are most at risk

that AIDS is threatening more and more
young adults. In January, the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention an-
nounced that AIDS is the No. 1 killer of
people ages 25 to 44.
Public health officials wondered at
the time, if AIDS was killing that many,
how many others were alive with the
virus, posing the potential for the
disease's continued spread. And be-
cause HIV typically causes no symp-
toms for 10 years, just how young were
these people when they caught it?
Rosenberg used CDC data on re-
ported AIDS cases and fatalities. He

then used a process called back calcula-
tion, statistics on AIDS mortality, popu-
lation data and information on the
disease's incubation period to estimate
the number of HIV infections as of Jan.
l, 1993.
"It is important to recognize that back-
calculated estimates are based on mod-
eling rather than direct data and are
very uncertain," he acknowledged in
explaining his findings.
Nevertheless, Rosenberg's study is
the most precise look to date at HIV
prevalence among young Americans.
People ages 18 to 25 experienced a

rapid rise in HIV infections between
1986 and 1992, during the same time
when older Americans' risk of HIV
infection leveled off, Rosenberg found.
Those youthful infections meant people
ages 27 to 39 were the most likely to be
alive with HIV in January 1993, he re-
ported. He calculated that one of every
139 young white men was living with
HIV then, as was one in 33 young black
men and one in 60 Hispanics.
Women were more than four times
less likely to be infected. One of every
1,667 white women ages 27 to 39 had
HIV in January 1993, as did one in 98
black women and one in 222 Hispanics,
