KERRIGAN
Continued from page 1
According to The Oregonian, a
minister named Eugene Saunders told
a private investigator that he had lis-
tened to the tape. The two men then
went to authorities.
NBC said that after the meeting in
Portland, the hit man went to Boston,
where Kerrigan lives and trains. It
was there the investigators believe he
originally planned to get Kerrigan,
but bad weather somehow fouled the
attempt, NBC said. It was then, the
network's sources said, the attacker
went to Detroit, site of the U.S. Figure
Skating Championships.
In the attack, a man brandishing a
club struck Kerrigan after a practice
session, severely bruising her right
leg and forcing her to withdraw from
the competition. The man escaped.
The International Committee of
the U.S. Figure Skating Association
named Kerrigan to the Olympics team
anyway, along with Harding, who
won the U.S. championship at the
trials Saturday night. The two women
will be part of the U.S. contingent at
the Winter Olympics in Lillehammer,
Norway, Feb. 12-27.
Harding was scheduled to fly to
Fairfax, Va., yesterday for the
NationsBank U.S. Olympic Festival
on Ice. But Barry Geissler, general
manager of Patriot Center, where the
event will take place, said she can-
celed yesterday.
A representative of Bill Graham
Presents, the event's promoter, said

Harding told producers she was can-
celing because she's "having a few
media problems."
No one answered the telephone at
Harding's house, andhercoach, Diane
Rawlinson,did not reply toamessage
left on her answering machine. There
appeared to be no one at either the
home of Harding or Eckardt. It was
not known where Harding, Gillooly
or Eckardt were.
The Portland private investigator
who spoke with Saunders, Gary
Crowe, said Harding evidently knew
nothing about aplot to attack Kerrigan.
Crowe said Saunders, came to him
for advice after an acquaintance
played the tape recording for him.
Crowe said Saunders told him the
tape recording made it clear that
Kerrigan was the target.
Saunders told him a man's voice
on the tape asked, "Why don't wejust
kill her?"
The response was: "We don't need
to kill her. Let's just hit her in the
knee."
He said Saunders identified the
voices on the tape as those ofGillooly,
Eckardt and an Arizona man.
Crowe said Saunders' acquain-
tance became worried after receiving
threats from the Arizona man because
Gillooly had failed topay the $100,000
promised.
Saunders was friends with Eckardt,
Crowe said, but he didn't know
whether it was Eckardt who had pro-
vided the tape.
Crowe described Saunders as a
"straight shooter, the straightest of
the straight." He did not know which

church he was affiliated with.
No one was home at Saunders'
house yesterday, and he did not return
messages left on his answering ma-
chine.
Gillooly told The Oregonian he
had been questioned by the FBI but
denied that he was involved in the
attack.
"I wouldn't do that," Gillooly said.
"I have more faith in my wife than to
bump off her competition."
Eckardt called the allegations "ab-
surd."
"I would never get involved in
anything like that," Eckardt told the
newspaper. "That would be jeopar-
dizing my future, my career. I mean,
that's not something I could do or
allow."
Harding has denied any link to the
attack, saying she felt cheated of the
chance to compete with Kerrigan.
Detroit police, and later FBI
agents, questioned all skaters and
coaches at the Olympic trials.
Outside the home of Kerrigan's
parents in the Boston suburb of
Stoneham, Mass., Police Chief Eu-
gene Passaro said the skater's rela-
tives "really don't know any more
than what's on the TV."
Kerrigan's agent, ProServe, issued
a statement on behalf of the family
late yesterday.
"Based on the information we have
at this time, we have no comment on
the investigation," the statement said.
"We are sure the law enforcement
authorities are working hard on this
case and we hope their efforts are
successful."

Clinton calls for special counsel to
investigate Whitewater investments

complex than what is perceived in the
United States. And the contact here is
also important for the cooperation
between our countries."
Clinton himself said in Prague that
in Moscow "my urgent task will be to
try to continue to press the path of
democracy and reform and America's
support for it in Russia.
"They are a great people with a
great history and a great future," he
added. However, with all the change
of the past two years, he said, Russia
again must "define itself as a nation.
... I mean, after all, this is a rather new

experience for them."
Russian reformers are divided,
some determined to move ahead at
full speed, others inclined to slow
down and to soften the shock of tran-
sition to a free-market system.
"The forces of reform need to find
ways to work together and to speak, if
not with one voice, at least with a
common message," Clinton said in
Prague. He predicted "some rough
spots along the way" for the Yeltsin
programs.
Within his own administration
there is division on how whether
Clinton should counsel Yeltsin to
adopt social welfare programs.
Prices are still soaring, housing is
scarce and crime is increasing.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Yield-
ing to relentless political pressure,
President Clinton asked yesterday that
Attorney General Janet Reno name a
special counsel to investigate his in-
vestment in an Arkansas land devel-
opment.
"The president requests that this
investigation be conducted as expedi-
tiously as possible," Clinton adviser
George Stephanopoulos said in an-
nouncing the White House's abrupt
strategy shift.
Stephanopoulos said Clinton had
full confidence that the Justice De-
partment could conduct its own im-
partial investigation of the Whitewater
Development Corp.
He said that "innuendo, political
posturing and irresponsible accusa-
tions" by Republicans had given

Clinton little choice but to call for an
independent investigation.
"This controversy is becoming too
much of a distraction,"
Stephanopoulos said. "The president
wants to get on with the vital issues
facing the American people."
Stephanopoulos repeatedly said
that not even any of Clinton's critics
on Whitewater have raised any spe-
cific allegation of wrongdoing. He
said the White House was still of the
opinion that no special counsel was
necessary.
He said the political climate had
forced the president's hand.
Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.) said
that "in taking this action, the admin-
istration has taken the first step to-
ward putting this matter behind them."
Said House Speaker Thomas Foley

(D-Wash.). "It is my clear hope that
the president's decision will cut off
any further suggestion that the presi-
dent or the first lady have been any-
thing but forthcoming on this mat-
ter."
Reno said she knew herpick would
be subject to such second-guessing
but said, "The person I choose I want
to be ruggedly independent."
She said she would consider a list
of potential appointees recommended
by Republican lawmakers but did not
promise to make her pick from it.
"The president believes it is im-
portant to take whatever steps he can
to assure complete confidence in the
federal law enforcement system,"
Stephanopoulos said. "He believes
the integrity of high officials must be,
without question."

CITADEL
Continued from page 1
peals refused to overturn the order.
Faulkner said she hoped to be-
come a full-fledged member of the
grey-uniformed corps of cadets within
a year.
"I don't think you can get the full
Citadel experience without being a
cadet," she said.
Since Faulkner sued, five inci-
dents of vandalism have been directed
against her and her the family.
U.S. Attorney J.P. Strom said the
FBI was investigating threats against

Faulkner's "personal safety" and un-
specified threats against her family
and attorneys.
"I know I feel safe here on cam-
pus, it's just the off-campus stuff I do
have to worry about," she said.
She will stay with a Charleston
family that has requested anonymity.
After registering, Faulkner toured
campus escorted by Lynn Hook, one
of 1,649 women who take evening
classes at The Citadel.
Hook supports keeping the corps
of cadets all male.
"If we can obligate people to go to
coeducational schools, which we do,

Clinton may offer Yeltsin new fi-
nancial assistance on top of the $4
billion pledged last year for humani-
tarian aid, housing and privatization
efforts. He also could promise to push
the International Monetary Fund to
release some of the $5.5 billion in
loans it has held until Russia gets its
deficit under control.
Clinton's support for Yeltsin is
unwavering, but he also will hedge
his bets by meeting with a wide range
of politicians.
Excluded will be ultranationalist.
Vladimir Zhirinovsky.
"Next elections I will receive more
voices (votes) than now because Mr.
Clinton refused to have a meeting
with me," Zhirinovsky said.
why can't we obligate them to go to
single-gender schools?" Hook said.
When Faulkner arrived on cam
pus, she was greeted by Pat Johnson,
one of three women veterans who
sued in 1992 trying to gain admission
to day classes.
That case was dismissed after The
Citadel, worried about coeducation,
abolished a program allowing men
veterans to attend classes with cadets.
"It's kind of like a football game.
I feel like a quarterback handing the,
bal l off to Shannon Faulkner and she's
running -through the gate," Johnson
said.
Each of the awards, ranging between
$2,000 and $5,000, will support an
independent research or photography
project.
"You have to want to write for a
non-academic journal," Lowenstein
explained.
Moseley added, "I'm pretty ex-
cited. Doing current research is like-
being at the cutting edge. There are
more of these trials these days and we
hope (our research) will be useful and
educational."
