Bosnian cease-fire declared

ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) - Bosnia's com-
batants agreedyesterday to a 60-day cease-fire
and new talks on ending their 3 1/2 years of
carnage; taking one big step closer to a peace
settlement that U.S. troops would help police.
The accord on the cease-fire was reached
during United States' strongest press yet for
peace in Bosnia. In announcing the agree-
ment, President Clinton in -Washington ac-
knowledged that unresolved problems re-
mained before it takes effect Tuesday.
"We need to be clear-eyed about this," he
said. "It matters what the parties do, not just
what they say."
NATO planners said they would hasten
work on a military force to help enforce an
eventual peace arrangement. The United
States would commit roughly 20,000 troops
to such a force, but is saying they would not
enter Bosnia until a final peace deal is signed.

Warring factions near peace
settlement with 60-day truce

Citing progress toward peace, the'United
Nations announced it could cut its troops in
Bosnia by 9,000 troops, or one-third of its
force in Bosnia. It was not known how long
the withdrawals would take.
Warring forces in Bosnia continued to
battle for strategic territory. But in contrast to
countless failed truces, they seemed to want
this cease-fire.
The U.S. official who negotiated it, Assis-
tant Secretary of State Richard Holbrooke,
shed his normally cautious demeanor yester-
day after shuttling around the Balkans.

"Today marks another important step for-
ward, undeniably a big step forward,"
Holbrooke told reporters inZagreb, the Croatian
capital. "We're pleased with where we are."
In the northern Serb stronghold Banja
Luka, Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic
said he saw no reason to take back by force
territory Serbs recently have lost. "We want
peace, and we have to be practical," he said.
Under the agreement, signed by Bosnian
President Alija Izetbegovic and Bosnian Serb
leaders including Karadzic, peace talks will
be held in the United States beginning Oct.

25, and later in Paris.
The MusIim-led government army and rebel
Serbs will halt all offensive actions, including
mine-laying and sniping, at midnight Tuesday
(7:01 p.m. Ann Arbor time Monday).
But U.S. officials say that deadline might
have to be extended if utilities are not re-
stored to Sarajevo by then -- a key demand
of the Bosnian government.
Facing a fourth winter of war with Serbs
still surrounding their capital, Bosnian offi-
cials insisted on secure supplies of gas and
electricity. Utility lines go through Serb ter-
ritory and repeatedly have been cut to put
pressure on Sarajevo.
If the utility work cannot be done in time,
the cease-fire will take effect the day after it
is completed, Alexander Vershbow, special
assistant to Clinton for European affairs, told
reporters in Washington.

Brown to
new shelter
for women
N SAFE House to use
Simpson trial to build
awareness of abuse
By Lenny Feller
Daily Staff Reporter
Denise Brown, the sister of Nicole
Brown Simpson, is coming to Ann Ar-
bor Sunday to help dedicate the first
publicly-funded domestic violence cen-
ter in the country.
Brown will deliver a short speech as
the keynote speaker of the new SAFE
House, located at Clark and Hogback
roads. The dedication will take place
from 2-4 p.m.
The 300,000-square-foot shelter fea-
tures a 30-bedroom, 50-bed facility, an
education center and a children's cen-
ter. Construction ofthe shelter was made
possible through a $3.2 million prop-
erty tax millage increase, passed by
Washtenaw County voters in October
"When we heard (Brown) was com-
ingto the area, the timing fell into place,"
said Catherine McClary, president of the
Domestic Violence Project, Inc./Safe
House Board of Directors. "We thought
it was incredibly appropriate.
"The (O.J. Simpson) trial and his
murder case had the country riveted.
We wanted to use the coattails of that to
raise awareness of domestic abuse,"
McClary said.
Brown will speak on behalf of the
Educational Campaign on Domestic Vio-
lence, a new foundation she created to aid
battered women. It is a cause she has
embraced since the murder of her sister.
Brown's visit was arranged through
the efforts of the Counsel Against Do-
mestic Violence and an East Lansing
shelter, McClary said.
To McClary, the not-guilty verdict in
the Simpson trial is not the salient issue.
"Guilty or innocent, O.J. Simpson is a
convicted batterer," she said. "It's a con-
tinuum. It starts with slapping and hitting
and often ends with murder. It can happen
to anyone: rich, poor, white, black."
The dedication also will feature the
presentation of plaques and awards to
financial donors, bands, choral groups,
tours of the facility and the presentation
of a check to Washtenaw County to
cover rent for the next 50 years. The
check, however, will only be for $50,
per an agreement with Washtenaw
County to pay rent in the amount of $1
per year.
Organizers say the most important
part of the dedication has nothing to do
with any of these events. "We're mak-
ing a public statement that women
shouldn't have to hide anymore,"
McClary said.
McClary said she expects about 1,000
people to attend the dedication.

Pope speaks out
against abortion,
euthanasia in NJ.

:.: ;

- Invoking Emma Lazarus' plea for
America to embrace the huddled masses,
Pope John Paul II urged the nation
yesterday to rid itself of the "moral
blight" of abortion and euthanasia.
Just 10 miles from the Statue of Lib-
erty, the pontiff told more than 80,000
rain-soaked worshipers at Giants Sta-
dium to continue in the tradition of the
anti-slavery and civil rightsmovements
to extend legal protection to "the un-
born child," the elderly and the severely
"Both as Americans and as followers
of Christ, American Catholics must be
committed to the defense of life in all its
stages and in every condition," the pon-
tiff declared from a giant altar at one
end zone.
Hours of steady rain and raw October
weather could not detract from the en-
thusiasm of the huddled masses inside
the converted football field. Some in
the crowd wept, some pressed their
hands to their hearts or cried "Viva el
Papa" as the pontiff circled the stadium
in his pope-mobile.
"This is the most important day of
my life. I cannot describe to you how
important it is to be here," said 76-year-
old Edward Pietro of Toms River. "Af-
ter today, if nothing else exciting or
wonderful happens in my life, I will die
a fulfilled man."
Yesterday, the pope urged the United
Nationsto be an authentic force for
"The United Nations Organization
needs to rise more and more above the
cold status of an administrative institu-
tion and to become a moral center where
all the nations ofthe world feel at home,"
he told the General Assembly.
The pope's visit during the United
Nations' 50th anniversary year was the
central point of his fourth pilgrimage to
the United States. The organization is
deeply in debt, in part because of its
expanded peacekeeping operations in
Bosnia and elsewhere, and John Paul
wants to see it strengthened.
But that meeting like the other events
since the pope's arrival Wednesday was
for a small group of dignitaries and
invited guests. It was here in Giants
Stadium that masses ofthe faithful could
see the man many believe is the vicar of
Christ on Earth.
Among them was Donna Tellicano,
who suffers from multiple sclerosis and

< ;:


uses a wheelchair. She came hoping
that the pope would touch her and mi-
raculously cure her.
"I believe in miracles," she said.
Andrew DiDomenico, a 24-year-old
bagel baker from Clifton, came because
"God wanted me to be here."
"I was here in the rain for quite a few
Grateful Dead shows. I was here for
that, I should be here for this," he said.
In an atmosphere more resonant of a
concert or athletic event than a Mass,
flashbulbs popped throughout the sta-
dium as the pope re-entered the field for
the opening procession.
Before that, worshipers did "the
wave" and chanted "John Paul II, we
love you" as they waited in the rain.
The pope was partially protected by a
white canopy hanging over a huge red-
carpeted altar set up in an end zone. But
at one point, the wind knocked off his
zucchetto, the white skullcap. Some
bishops celebrating Mass with the pope
wore clear rain slickers over their white
and gold vestments.
In his homily, the pope recited part of
Lazarus' poem in encouraging Ameri-
cans to continue to welcome immi-
grants yearning to breathe free and to
serve the poor.
"Is present-day America becoming
less sensitive, less caring toward the
poor, the weak, the stranger, the needy?
It must not," the pope declared.
