WASHINGTON (AP) - Newly
installed White House chief of staff
Howard Baker announced yesterday
that Robert Gates' nomination as
CIA director was being withdrawn
at Gates' request and said President
Reagan was ready to tackle the Iran-
Contra problem head-on in a speech
to the nation.
Appearing formally for the first
time before the White House press
corps, Baker said of Reagan: "I've
never seen him better than today."
Baker said "the original plan"
was for Reagan to announce a
nominee at the same time Gates'
withdrawal was announced, but "it
didn't quite come together that
way." He said choosing a successor
for William Casey as director of the
CIA was "an urgent item on the
In a letter to Reagan released by
Baker, Gates, acting director of the
CIA, told the president, "It is
apparent that there is strong
sentiment in the Senate" to
withhold approval of his nomina -
tion pending completion of the
investigation into the Iran-Contra
Gates said in the letter he
thought such delay would be
damaging to the CIA "and to our
Baker released Reagan's letter in
response, in which the president
said that "with great regret I've
agreed to Robert Gates' request."
"I've asked Bob to continue
serving under a new director,"
Reagan said, describing Gates, as "a
remarkably talented and dedicated
man. I've been impressed with the
class he has shown, under the
enormous pressure of recent weeks.
In any other time, I am sure he
would have been easily confirmed."

Taberner lived in the United
States for 16 years prior to the
contest. Taberner's lawsuit, filed in
a federal court on February 27, calls
to have the rule declared unconsti -
tutional and asks for $1.5 million
compensatory damages, $500,000
punitive damages, and an injunction
to lift the disqualification.
The lawsuit says Kent State
breached Taberner's contract after he
won the contest, which carried a
$20,000 first prize.
Ralph Oates, Taberner's lawyer,
said, "There were several oral
breeches of the contract after the
contest." Oates said he soon plan-
ned to formally serve Kent State
witi the suit, in which Taberner is
suing its trustees and President
Michael Schwartz. Kent State
attorneys then have 20 days to
return an official defense statement.
"Everybody ought to have a
right to enter a state contest. He
lives here, he graduates from col-
lege with honors, and now they say
he can't enter their little contest,"
Robert Beck, director of legal
affairs at Kent State said it was too
soon to speculate on the case. "We
haven't been officially served yet,
but when the time comes the
Attorney General of Ohio will
decide on the defense," he said.
According to Oates, Schwartz
and board trustee member Richard
Cunningham asked Tabemer to be a
consultant so his design could still
be used. But the school decided later
to award first place to another

conspiracy claim against the school
because of a meeting called for by
Schwartz and Cunningham after the
contest. "They told him not to
