Mrs. Clinton will testify for grand jury
WASHINGTON -First lady Hillary Rodham Clinton will testify under subphefl
Friday before a Washington grand jury investigating the mysterious discovery of her
law firm billing records in the White House residence.
Her testimony was requested by Whitewater prosecutor Kenneth Starr, the White
House said. The appearance will be her first before the Whitewater grand jury, though
it will be the fourth time she has answered questions under oath for the prosecutors.
Mrs. Clinton, put on the defensive by Whitewater disclosures, offered earl
yesterday to supply written answers to questions from the Senate Whitewa
Committee. The Republican chairman said the panel wanted more documents first.
The White House's statement on the grand jury said staff members and Mrs.
Clinton's personal lawyer also were subpoenaed and will testify. The statement did not
identify the officials by name.
"As the first lady has always said, she is as eager as anyone to resolve questions
regarding the billing records, and she will continue to provide whatever help she can,"°
the statement said. "Friday's testimony will offer the first lady the opportunity to tell
the independent counsel what she knows about these matters."
Reacting to the continuing questions about Mrs. Clinton's truthfulness regarding her
work for a failed Arkansas savings and loan, the Clintons' personal lawyer sent a letr
to the Whitewater Committee chairman, Sen. Alfonse D'Amato, earlier Monday*

Daily Staff Reporter
Students at The Minnesota Daily, the
University of Minnesota's student news-
paper, are anxiously waiting to find out
the fate of an undisclosed number of
photographs taken in 1993 at a campus
A key order is expected today from
Hennepin County District Court Judge
John Stanoch that will either instruct the
editor in chief of
the newspaper,
Michelle Ames, to
surrender the pho- The e

ment officials or this Cou

said Ames.
The Minnesota Minnes
Court of Appeals,
in a 2-1 decision,
ruled Friday that Judge Stanoch exceeded
his authority in December when he
quashed a subpoena for the unpublished
photos. The appellate court had previ-
ously approved the subpoena.
Friday's appellate court ruling man-
dates that a Hennepin County judge
review the photos to determine if they
are relevant and should be admitted in
the case.
The newspaper filed an appeal with
the Minnesota Supreme Court yester-
day afternoon. Ames said Hennepin
County prosecutors argued in court yes-
terday that the photographs should be
turned over as soon as possible, without
waiting for a decision from the state
Supreme Court.
The newspaper cites press freedom
laws in its refusal to surrender the pho-
tos. Ames said the Miinnesota Daily

SALT LAKE CITY -- If all goes
according to plan, on Jan.26 John Albert
Taylor will eat a pizza, smoke a ciga-
rette, then be strapped into a chair and
shot in the heart for the rape and murder
of I1-year-old Charla King in 1989. '
But ifabill to be introducedthis month
in the Utah Legislature becomes law,
Taylor may be the last person executed by
firing squad in the United States.
A warehouse at Utah State Prison is
being outfitted with one-way mirrors,
plywood partitions with gun ports and a
wooden armchair in preparation for
Friday's scheduledexecution in the only
state that allows condemned inmates to
choose between a firing squad and le-
thal injection.
At a time when only unusual execu-
tions receive much media scrutiny,
Taylor's case is attractingattention around
the world and is renewing a statewide
debate over capital punishment.

are pursuing the photos on the grounds
that they may resolve conflicting wit-
ness accounts of the alleged assault.
The newspaper published only one
photo ofthe event, showing individuals
falling down a flight of stairs together.
Ames said she could not disclose the
contents of the rest of the photographs,
but said she did not think they would be
ivaluable aids to the case. "Newspapers
run the most illustrative photo they have.
They don't hide all the juicy ones in

Ames claimed there are at least 100
eyewitnesses to the event in question.

said. "A free press is not co-opted by
government, law enforcement or the
