LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP)-Beaming at "I Trust Hillary"
signs and likening her critics to neighborhood bullies, Hillary
Rodham Clinton basked in hometown cheers yesterday. She
said she will testify to Congress if that's what it takes to put
Whitewater behind her.
As she began a 10-city tour to promote her new book, Mrs.
Clinton told an auditorium filled with hundreds of supporters
that "despite all the storm about
Whitewater" she hoped the American
people focus on important issues such I will t
as the well-being of the nation's chil-
dren. n hin
A few blocks from the downtown
hotel where she spoke, her indicted cooperat
Whitewater business partners and Ar-
kansas Gov. Jim Guy Tucker were in a this matt
pre-trial court hearing trying to fend off -r
charges that they looted a savings and closes"
loan before it collapsed. Tucker and - Hillary F
James and Susan McDougal face a
March 4 trial.
And in Washington the Senate Whitewater Committee
heard from three White House aides who on Nov. 5, 1993,
met with the Clintons' personal lawyers after spending
several months gathering information about the criminal
investigations of Whitewater.
Mrs. Clinton spent half an hour chatting and autographing
copies of her book on raising children for more than 100
friends who turned out in heavy fog to greet her at the airport.
Two dozen or so supporters carried signs bearing hand-
drawn messages of support. "Enemies come and go, Friends
are forever," read one.
Mary Jo Rogers of Hot Springs - who said she's known
Bill Clinton since he was 12 years old - waved a sign that
said, "1 Trust Hillary."
Rogers said the first lady has been subjected to "some
tough questions" and should be treated more kindly.
Questions in recent days have fo-
cused on the emergence of long-
ter to a

Clinton's work for the savings and
loan, and a memo asserting she was

During Mrs. Clinton's downtown
hotel appearance, the audience
cheered when she spoke ofhow she'c
been taught to stand up to neighbor-
hood children who were beating her
up because she was the new kid on the
"Don't give in to bullies," Mrs. Clinton said. "That's what
I have tried to do and will continue to do."
"Youjust never know when childhood experiences will be
relevant," she added, prompting laughter.
After her appearance in Little Rock, Mrs. Clinton told
supporters. at a Blytheville bookstore she is prepared t
testify before Congress about Whitewater.
"I will do anything to cooperate to bring this matter to a
close. I've said that, it seems, for 100 years," she said.
Yale strike ends; grades reported
The Yale Daily News
NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Succumb-
ing to the Yale administration's hard-
line stance, the Graduate Employees
and Students Organization voted Sun-
day night, 36 to 35, to end their five-
week-long grade strike.
Teaching assistants who planned on
withholding grades turned them in yes-
terday either directly to the Yale College
Registrar or to their professors and de-
partments, GESO representatives said.
GESO's decision to call off the strike
came after Yale officials issued a final
warning that teaching assistants who did
not turn in their grades by Monday would
not have teaching assignments this term.
"Forthepast month, what we've seen
from the university is a level of threats
and intimidation that is pretty unprec-
edented at any university, much less at
an prestigious institution like Yale,"
GESO Chair Robin Brown said.
Brown said the vote was a "very
difficult decision to make. But the uni-
versity has threatened people with ex-
pulsion, which in some cases meant
deportation," and professors have
threatened to blacklist striking TAs.
"The final threat being leveled was
that we would be locked out of our jobs
for the spring semester," Brown said.
Last month, GESO members voted
to withhold undergraduate grades until
Yale administrators agreed to recog-
nize and negotiate with the organiza-
tion as a labor union. University offi-
cials have made no concessions and
continue to insist they will not recog-
nize GESO as an official collective
bargaining unit for graduate students it
the humanities and social sciences.
Some GESO members said they de-
cided to end the strike because the ad-
ministration did not seem to be bending
to the union's demands.
"I think it has in a way outlived its
usefulness and that at this point it was
going to start hurting undergraduates,"
said graduate student Deborah Karush,
who voted to end the grade strike.
Administrators applauded GESO',
decision to call off the grade strike.
"I think it's very good news," Gradu-
ate School Dean Thomas Appelquist

Republican freshman senators start
rare joint 3-day road trip to show umty.
WASHINGTON (AP) - Nine Re-
publican freshmen senators began a
joint eight-city tour yesterday to un-
derscore before hometown audiences
their unity in pushing for a balanced
budget and other Republican priori-
"One of the things that I think our
Republican freshmen senators have
done in Washington is to dramatically
shift the debate in the United States
Senate," said Sen. Spencer Abraham
(R-Mich.), who came up with the idea
for the tour.
"Today in Washington we're de-
bating not how much more money
government will spend, but we're
starting to debate how much we can
reduce the growth of federal spend-
ing," he said.
The 1994 elections brought 11 new
senators to Washington, all of them

The tour will
highlight the legislation that has passed
the GOP-led Congress, such as welfare
reform and a reconciliation bill that
balances the budget, along with fresh-
men legislation such as Abraham'spro-
posal to expand enterprise zones in in-

To deliver their message, the sena-
tors are attending town hall meetings,
round table discussions, tours or news
conferences in Philadelphia, Knoxville,
Tenn.; Columbus, Ohio; Minneapolis,
Minn.; St. Louis, Mo.; Oklahoma City,
Okla.; and Cheyenne, Wyo.
Some of the senators mentioned the
publicity the 73 House freshmen have
received for putting Republicans in the
majority in that chamber. The senators
noted they also were majority make
