NATO airstrike plan could escalate into strategic campaigns
WASHINGTON (AP) — NATO’s new plan for airstrikes in Bosnia calls for escalated bombing in as many as three stages, culminating in attacks on electric power stations and other nonmilitary targets, American defense officials say.
The U.S.-led NATO alliance now has the political go-ahead it needs to launch the first set of air attacks. But if the Seibs aren't cowed after the first or second phases of bombing, die allies would have to go back to U.N. and NATO political authorities for permission to move to the third and final stage.
Under the plan approved at NATO headquarters in Belgium this week, the initial bombing would be triggered either by a direct Seth attack on the U.N. “safe zone” of Gorazde, in eastern Bosnia, or by evidence that an attack was being prepared. NATO and U.N. military commanders in the area would make the call jointly.
NATO warplanes, led by American F-16s and other attack aircraft, would begin by smashing Serb air defense systems near Gorazde and bomb Serb armor and troops. Allied officials hope this would be enough to stop the Serbs; in fact, they hope just the threat alone will persuade the Serbs not to start.
If the Serbs persisted, NATO envisions moving to a second phase of the air campaign in which allied aircraft would hit targets outside Gorazde, including airfields, supply routes and columns of troop reinforcements headed toward the city, said a senior U.S. defense official who spoke on condition of anonymity.
The third phase, if ordered, would go beyond tactical, or battlefield, tar
gets to those of strategic importance to the Serbs. This could include the electric power grid throughout Serb-held areas of Bosnia, dams, bridges and other nonmilitary targets that bear on the Serb army’s ability to sustain itself.
Because this third stage would represent a major escalation of the conflict and of NATO nations’ involvement, it would not begin until a goahead was given by U.N. headquarters in New York and NATO headquarters in Brussels, Belgium.
“They’re talking about an air campaign which would be fairly massive," Rep. Bill Young, R-Fla., chairman of the House Appropriations defense subcommittee, said Thursday after he and other House leaders were briefed on Bosnia by Defense Secretary William Perry and Secretary of State Warren Christopher.
If such an operation were undertaken, American warplane pilots would be at the forefront of an operation bigger and riskier than any undertaken in Bosnia so far.
Until now, U.S. combat action in Bosnia has been limited to brief NATO air attacks on a small number of targets such as individual Serb tanks, so-called “pinpricks” that were constrained by the need to get advance U.N. political approval.
U.S. planes also have been flying as part of NATO’s enforcement of a “no fly zone” over Bosnia; Air Force Capt Scott O’Grady was shot down June 2 while flying an F-16 as part of this mission.
Although warplanes from Britain, France, the Netherlands and other NATO nations would participate, the operation would be predominantly

Higher education supported in city
Seventy-six percent polled give thumbs up
By SUSAN FLYNT ENGLAND
The answer was a resounding “yes.” The question — Does New Braunfels need local higher education — was posed by the Committee on Higher Education.
The city council authorized the committee to do an in-depth study of what New Braunfels wants in higher education. “City Council funded the entire amount, $4,800,” committee Chair Bob Ristau said.
“A project of this size would normally cost three times the amount,” he said. “The lower cost was maintained by the large number of volunteer hours put in by members of the Committee on Higher Education.”
The study was a teamwork effort between San Antonio College and members of the higher education committee, Ristau said.
Fully 76 percent of people polled

Elwanda D. Allen, of New Braunfels, passed away at Kirkwood Manor on Tuesday, July 25,1995 at the age of 73. A memorial service will be held Sunday, July 30, 1995 at I p.m. at Frank’s Haus, behind Hospice New
said local higher education would help them pursue their education goals.
Non-traditional students such as mothers returning to school spoke out most strongly on their need for locally available higher education, the study found. Cost was the most important factor in whether or not they could continue their education.
Earning a training certificate was a popular goal among non-traditional students, but the majority wanted to go all the way for a four-year degree. Favorite courses of study — health care, clerical, computer, and education-related.
Forty-one percent of high school seniors in the study said they didn’t want to stay in New Braunfels when they graduated. Health care, business and education were the top career choices for graduating seniors.

increase skills related to their present jobs, according to the study results.
Most area employers — 73 percent — provide some kind of educational assistance for their employees, the study said. Computer studies topped their wish list for classes, followed by health care, management, business, English and math, and customer service. Employers did prefer classrooms located off the work site, the study found.
All categories of subjects expressed an overwhelming need for computer courses. This creates an immediate need and a problem, Ristau said, because of lack of properly equipped classroom facilities.
The committee’s work only starts here, Ristau said. “We’re in the process now of developing action plans based on the correlation of survey results that will focus on promot
ing continued community support for, higher and continuing education,” he; said.
Members of the Committee on' Higher Education worked closely with! SAC for about nine months to cont*; plete the study. The members are:; Chair Bob Ristau, subcommittee chain*.; Ted Alexander, Lily Barucky and* Cristina Zamora, committee members' Dawn Alexander, Atanacio Campos,, Bill Cone, Dr. Leland Cox, Gus Cut- J well, John Dierksen, Dora Gonzales,; Dr. Jerry Major, Wesley O’Dell, Dr. < Peter Olsen, Paul Pennington, Joy ‘ Streator, Guadalupe Suarez, Davi^l Sullens, Linda Zavala and Dr. Jerry-; Barucky.
