Yugoslavia will be poorer if Slovenia secedes. So will Slovenia. The plebiscite in the richest and most Western of Yugoslavia's six "republics" went nearly 90 percent for independence. In fact, it triggered a six-month period for Slovenia's nationalist leaders to negotiate a looser federal arrangement in Yugoslavia. Yugoslavia's leaders should use it wisely.There is no sign that they will. Final results in Serbia's run-off election give the Socialists (as the Communists are now called) 194 of the 250 seats in Yugoslavia's most populous republic.

It is probably fair to say that Slovenia knows as much about Clint Dempsey as Clint Dempsey knows about Slovenia. A lot of Americans were sent scrambling for maps in December when the U.S. was drawn to play the Eastern European country in the World Cup. Many had never heard of it. Similarly, there weren't many people in Ljubljana, Maribor or Kranj who had any knowledge about the man from Nacogdoches, Texas. On Friday afternoon, at Ellis Park Stadium in Johannesburg, they could find out. It used to be that Landon Donovan was the player that everyone counted on to carry the load for the U.S. Then it was Donovan and goalkeeper Tim Howard.

BELGRADE -- Yugoslavia's quarreling political leaders could agree on little last week except to effectively accept the independence of Slovenia, thus recognizing an important piece in the country's disintegration.Now attention shifts to Croatia and the potential it poses for a wider civil war.Croatia, which along with Slovenia declared independence June 25, appeared to have suffered a serious setback. Croatia's representative on the eight-man collective presidency, Stipe Mesic, had cast the only vote against the army withdrawal from Slovenia --the move that seemed to guarantee Slovenia's independence.

Sacramento, Calif. - In the midst of the present turmoil in Yugoslavia, one thing is clear: Croatia and Slovenia will be free, independent and democratic nations with or without the blessings of the so-called world powers.No action or inaction on the part of any government is going to reverse the will of the majority of Croatians expressed by every generation since 1918.For centuries, the Croatians and Slovenians fought for autonomy within the Hapsburg Empire. By the early 20th Century, they had succeeded to a great extent and had no desire to be absorbed into another multi-national state.

Kevin Durant added 14 points and Chauncey Billups 12 for the U.S., which shot 55 percent from the field. Leading by only two after the first quarter, the U.S. outscored Croatia 26-6 in the second. "People aren't expecting us to come out here and win, so we just wanted to make a statement and I think we did," Durant said.

It took England barely four minutes to pierce the U.S. defense before the back line stiffened. It took Slovenia all of 13 minutes to find a way through the U.S. rear guard before American resolve came to the fore. So, after salvaging a 1-1 tie in its first match and a 2-2 tie in its second, what sort of performance is U.S. coach Bob Bradley's team going to produce Wednesday morning, when Algeria is the opponent in Pretoria? Will it be another slow start, or have the lessons of the World Cup been learned?

Motivation level high Paul Doyle Hartford Courant After a sometimes lethargic performance against the Netherlands on Wednesday, the U.S. doesn't seem primed for much success in the World Cup. And with the Americans slipping to 18th in the FIFA rankings, expectations couldn't be lower. That's why the U.S. can sneak out of the first round in South Africa. After opening with a doozy - England on June 12 - the Americans have Slovenia and Algeria.

KRANJ, Slovenia - Opening a farewell tour of Europe, President Bush won European support yesterday to consider additional punitive sanctions against Iran, including restrictions on its banks, if Iran rejects a package of incentives to suspend its uranium enrichment program. Iran has begun transferring billions of dollars from European banks to Iranian and Asian banks, and buying gold and equities, according to reports in the Iranian news media, apparently to protect its windfall oil revenue from any new sanctions.

LJUBLJANA, Slovenia - President Bush's weeklong tour through Berlin, Rome, Paris and London appears every bit the glamorous old-style farewell tour with a leisurely schedule, jaunts to country castles and lavish dinners. But it's actually a high-stakes diplomatic mission, spurred by Bush's fear that Iran is an increasingly urgent threat and that Europe may not take it seriously enough. Bush has never been popular in Western Europe after the U.S. invasion of Iraq. "A lot of people like America.

PARIS -- France bowed yesterday to President Clinton's wish to limit NATO expansion to Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary, backing away from a looming impasse when leaders of the alliance meet in Madrid, Spain, next week to extend the first invitations to formerly Communist countries in Central Europe.In a statement, the French government also said that while the United States had not yet ceded enough leadership positions in the alliance to Europeans to satisfy France's conditions for letting its troops rejoin the NATO military structures that it left 31 years ago, it was willing to continue discussions.

BELGRADE, Yugoslavia -- Yugoslavia's two rebel republics, Croatia and Slovenia, declared independence last night in a move that would end the present Yugoslav state, arousing fears of civil war in the Balkan region.The moves provoked a sharp reaction here in the Yugoslav capital. The federal Parliament issued a statement urging the army "to undertake measures to prevent the division of Yugoslavia and changes in its borders."Sirens screamed and church bells boomed throughout Zagreb, the Croatian capital, as the speaker of the Croatian Parliament, Zarko Domljan, declared, "The State of Croatia is born."
