WASHINGTON (AP)--Defend-
ing his ethics and those of his wife,
House Speaker Newt Gingrich com-
plained yesterday he's been "investi-
gated, scrutinized, smeared and at-
tacked" by liberals who detest his
conservative ideas.
"They hate the idea that we're
winning," Gingrich said.
Responding to questions from re-
porters, Gingrich was poised to strike
back at his critics. He identified them
as "tax-and-spend liberals" who were
trying to put him through "Chinese
water torture."
"Every other day somebody on
the left launches a new attack,"
Gingrich said, contending he's been
"sensitive to ethics issues for my en-
tire career."
His comments came as the House
ethics committee prepared to meet -
possibly this week - to decide how
to proceed on complaints against him.

Gingrich defended his wife's job
with a company seeking a free trade
zone in Israel; his book deals; his
assistance to a company in his district
and his featured ap-.
pearance last night
at a $50,000 per ?
couple dinner to
benefit National '
Em p o w e r m e n t
Television -
which carries his
lectures.a
Gingrich's
broadside had no
apparent effect on Gingrich
liberal Democrats, who have been
making floor speeches every day at-
tacking his ethics and conservative
beliefs.
"This lavish dinner speaks volumes
about who Republicans represent," said
Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.), one of
several lawmakers who make daily de-

mands for an outside ethics counsel to
investigate the speaker.
"They are dining with the elite at
the same time Republicans are oppos-
ing a minimum wage increase for
American workers. A full-time mini-
mum wage worker would have to
work five and three-quarter years to
buy a seat at Mr. Gingrich's table."
Rep. Patricia Schroeder (D-Colo.),
another persistent critic, said, "I don't
think Newt's views qualify as news
and I don't think that's what the tax
code was meant to back."
Democrats said $19,000 of the
contribution to the non-profit cable
network was tax-deductible.
Gingrich seemed angriest yester-
day when discussing news stories
questioning the job his wife,
Marianne, has with a marketing com-
pany seeking U.S. business for a free
trade zone in Israel.
Mrs. Gingrich was hired for a

$2,500 monthly salary, but she also
earned commissions for recruiting
firms for an industrial park, which
would operate free of most taxes in
the zone.
"Why are wives being brought
into this?" Gingrich pointedly asked.
"She works for a private company.
She does no lobbying for the U.S.
government or the U.S. Congress of
any kind. She is a professional plan-
ner by background.
"It seems to me since no taxpayer
funds are involved and it's an entirely
private business she ought to be let
alone," he added.
Gingrich acknowledged he pro-
moted the free trade idea to Israeli
officials, but also said he's been ad-
vocating the concept to world leaders
for years.
He did not recommend any par-
ticular company to the Israelis, he
said.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP)
- With their primary job accom-
plished, Discovery's astronauts set
an ultraviolet telescope free yester-
day and, after four tense days, finally
relaxed in space.
The satellite release was almost
an afterthought to Monday's historic
rendezvous between Discovery and
Russia's Mir station.
"I sent a message down to my wife
... and said it's the most beautiful
thing I've ever done with the excep-
tion of getting married and having
two children," said commanderJames
Wetherbee, who steered Discovery to
37 feet from Mir.
Wetherbee said during aTV inter-
view that the encounter was made
more emotional by Russian cosmo-
naut Vladimir Titov's presence aboard
Discovery.
"He spent over a year on that ve-
hicle and it was his home and when
we saw it, it was amazing," the com-
mander said.
Titov released the shiny, copper-
colored telescope from the end of the
shuttle robot arm 240 miles above Bra-
zil. The satellite began focusing on in-
terstellar gas and dust, the material from
which new stars and planets form.

Tomorrow, the crew will retrieve
the telescope with the robot arm and
two spacewalking astronauts will
practice lifting the 2,800-pound
bundle before stowing it for the trip
home.
Monday's rendezvous was a test
flight for at least seven Atlantis-Mir
dockings through 1997 beginning this
June. Atlantis will be the only one of
NASA's four shuttles with a docking
mechanism.
The six astronauts, uncertain about
details of the rendezvous until practi-
cally the last minute because of a
shuttle jet leak, continued to savor the
close encounter.
The steering jet, which began
spewing fuel shortly after Friday's
lift-off, was turned off so as not to
damage Mir.
Wetherbee said there was a lot of
seriousness in the cockpit as he closed
in on Mir "because we didn't want to
make any mistakes."
"But I've got to tell you in the
back of our minds we were thinking
this is a pretty great world we're liv-
ing in here, when we can have the
space programs of two of the largest
nations in the world getting together
and performing an event like this."

The Washington Post
WASHINGTON - The Clinton
administration, attempting to get rid
of one of the nation's most enduring
symbols of government failure, has
proposed giving local housing offi-
cials the power to tear down some of
the country's most decrepit public
housing projects.
Under the budget plan announced
Monday, local officials for the first
time would have access to billions of
dollars that until now have been
cloaked in regulatory restrictions that
made demolition all but impossible.
The Department of Housing and
Urban Development Monday also
listed 10 developments to be destroyed
in the next two years, including 771
units ofBaltimore's Lafayette Courts,
and the 134-unit Ellen Wilson Dwell-
ings here.
HUD said the Ellen Wilson project,
5.3 acres in southeast Washington, is
now vacant, and would be torn down
in the summer of 1996 and replaced
with 161 homes for low- and middle-

income people. Lafayette Courts is
scheduled for partial demolition at
the end of this year.
"This is a good news announce-
ment," D.C. Mayor Marion Barry said
yesterday at a news conference hail-
ing the Ellen Wilson demolition. "We
are still doing a lot of things in our city
for our citizens."
Other projects slated to be destroyed
included 500 units of the 2,200-unit
Cabrini-Green complex in Chicago, a
part of the Desire project in New Or-
leans, and Walsh Homes in Newark.
HUD and local housing authori-
ties had planned the 10 demolitions
for some time, but the HUD "Rein-
vention Blueprint," presented as part
of the budget, would give local hous-
ing officials broad authority to de-
stroy any project as long as local
needs would continue to be:served.
"I don't envision wholesale demo-
lition, and I'm not looking for it,"
Joseph Shuldiner, HUD assistant sec-
retary for public and Indian housing,
said yesterday.
