had risen by only 3 percent.

moment of reflection or of silence at
schools, and at a Supreme Court deci-
sion on the issue. The goal is a Clinton
proposal that would satisfy the right
without outraging the left, and still
get past the high court.
Administration officials said yes-
terday that although the high court
has also ruled unconstitutional mo-
ments of silence for prayer, it has left
open the door to completely neutral
moments of silence that are not ad-
vertised as time for prayer.
It is unclear that approach would
satisfy conservatives. Tony Blankley,
spokesman for Gingrich, said, "I think
we are looking at voluntary school
prayer. Not voluntary silence." He
said Gingrich, however, would wel-
come discussions with the president
on the issue.
Although it was not an issue dur-
ing the presidential campaign, Clinton
was asked then about a school-prayer
constitutional amendment and re-
jected it. "There are ways the presi-
dent can revive religious faith other
than passing constitutional amend-
ments on prayer in school," he said in
August 1992 before a Jewish organi-
William Galston, a domestic-
policy adviser to the president, said
Clinton has a long, detailed record in
favor of moment-of-silence legisla-
tion. As governor of Arkansas, Clinton
helped write a bill authorizing schools
to "conduct brief periods of silent
meditation and reflection at the be-
ginning of the school day."
But Galston said Clinton has "con-
sistently drawn the line" against co-
Clinton, asked about the issue in
April, said he agreed with the original
1962 high-court decision outlawing
an official school prayer as a viola-
tion of the constitutional separation
of church and state. But the court, he
said, had gone too far in not allowing

Indeed, after his speech yester-
day, Clinton applauded contracts
signed this week in Indonesia worth
more than $40 billion, timed to coin-
cide with his visit. They included an
Exxon contract with Indonesia's na-
tional oil company to develop an off-
shore natural gas field as well as joint
ventures in telecommunications,
power transmission and environmen-
"We're grateful for the business,"
the president said. "The most impor-
tant thing for me is these contracts
will support jobs, thousands of them,
back home." The White House re-
leased a sheaf of papers listing the
value of the contracts and the number
of U.S. jobs each was expected to
generate in communities like Mes-
quite, Texas, and Plantation, Fla.
Earlier in the day, however,
Clinton looked grim and exhausted
when he emerged from his one-on-
one meeting with Suharto, the 73-
year-old autocrat whose record on
human rights has been mixed at best.
