White House to
find new nominee

from Anthony Lake's sudden withdrawal,
the White House considered a quick
move yesterday to name acting CIA
Director George Tenet as a substitute
nominee to head the nation's spy agency.
Senior White House officials,
Republican senators and even Lake him-
self advanced Tenet's name as a non-con-
troversial way to bring a new chief to a
CIA that has been without a confirmed
director since early December. Other
names were on President Clinton's short
list, but Tenet was the only candidate
undergoing a final White House review
and could be nominated as early as today.
"I have a lot of respect for him. We
believe he's capable," said Sen. Richard
Shelby (R-Ala.), chair of the Senate
Intelligence Committee and the man
who orchestrated much of the criticism
of Lake that led to his withdrawing his

name Monday night. Shelby indicated
the committee could move quickly on a
Tenet nomination - in sharp contrast
to the drawn-out consideration of
Lake's nomination.
White House Press Secretary Mike
McCurry said Clinton wanted to move
quickly but was not ready yesterday to
fill the vacancy left by the departure in
last year's post-election shuffle of John
Deutch. Senior White House officials
who spoke anonymously said Clinton's
staff was pushing Tenet's candidacy in
private meetings with the president.
In an unsolicited appraisal, McCurry
told reporters that the front-running
Tenet "does a spectacular job and has a
great reputation inside the agency. I
think he's very well liked on the Hill."
Without mentioning Tenet by name,
Clinton suggested his list was down to
one name.

Schwartz says donations aren't favors
WASHINGTON-When aerospace executive Bernard Schwartz got phone calls
from Democratic National Committee Co-Chair Donald Fowler, he usually opened
his checkbook, Schwartz said. The $600,000 that Schwartz gave various
Democratic fund-raising committees in 1995 and 1996 made him one of the party's
biggest donors.
Schwartz, chief executive of Loral Space & Communications Ltd., said he
never asked for a favor in return, or received one. The numerous Pentagon co -
tracts and favorable decisions he has received from the Clinton administration,
including its antitrust approval of Bethesda-based Lockheed Martin Corp.'s $9.bil-
lion purchase of his Loral Corp. last year, would have been rendered without the
donations, he said.
Schwartz said he would never ask President Clinton for favors. "It would be
inappropriate for me" he said, "and embarrassing for him."
Rather, he said he contributed to the Democrats because he agrees with their
ideas. He said he enjoys discussing his proposals for infrastructure investment with
Clinton, and derives "psychic income" from donating his money.
One aerospace industry official agreed, saying the Manhattan-based Schwa
"gives money the way Barbra Streisand does. It's the groupie syndrome. He's
in our (industry) club, but in their (New York liberal) club."

Anthony Lake is sworn in on Capitol Hill Monday before withdrawing.

1991, three-fourths of it from Jews and
one-fourth from Arabs, but successive
Likud and Labor governments deemed
it too provocative to begin construction
until now.
Netanyahu and his officials said the
project is meant to demonstrate Israel's
commitment, as senior aide Dore Gold
put it yesterday, to "protect Jerusalem
from being redivided." Palestinian
leaders, backed by the Clinton admin-
istration and other governments
around the world, regard it as an effort
to preempt negotiations that Israel is
committed to conducting on the city's

"permanent status."
The United States renewed its criti-
cism of the Israeli project yesterday, as
Secretary of State Madeleine Albright
urged both sides to resume talks, Reuter
reported. "I think that the Israelis under-
stand the difficulties that we see with
their going forward," Albright said.
Arafat, who has several times called
the project illegal, adopted a mild pub-
lic profile in an effort to counter Israeli
charges that he is fomenting violent
acts behind the scenes. He met in Gaza
City with Yuval Rabin, the son of slain
prime minister Yitzhak Rabin, and said
afterward, "We discussed ways and
means of how we together can protect
and save the peace process."

Herman headed for
Senate approval
. WASHINGTON - A day after the
Senate confirmation process claimed a
victim when Anthony Lake withdrew
his nomination to head the CIA, Labor
secretary-designee Alexis Herman
appeared headed for congressional
approval after a hearing yesterday that
tread lightly on allegations that she
mixed politics and policy as a White
House aide.
Still, the chair of the Senate
Education and Labor Committee
warned Herman that she "made mis-
takes" in a culture where confusion
between politics and policy may have
been inevitable.
"Fortunately for all of us, the stan-
dard for public office is not perfection,"
said Sen. Jim Jeffords (R-Vt.). "But
neither is it sufficient to say,
'Everybody does it.' They don't."
In a sign that Herman may have
overcome concerns previously raised
about her nomination, by the end of a
nearly four-hour hearing she won acco-
N. Korean defector
escapes to safety
BEIJING-Five weeks after he
walked into a South Korean consulate
here seeking political asylum from the
regime he helped create, a top-ranking
North Korean defector was in the
Philippines under heavy security yes-
terday, his first stop on a journey that is
expected to end eventually in Seoul.
Philippine officials confirmed that
Hwang Jang Yop, 74, author of the iso-
lationist code of self-reliance-or
"juche"-practiced in North Korea,
landed in a charter aircraft at former
U.S. Clark Air Force Base near Manila.
Military officials told Reuter news
agency that Hwang was then taken to
Baguio, 125 miles north of Manila.
The cloak-and-dagger exit by the
most senior official ever to defect from
North Korea ended a diplomatic paral-
ysis that caught the Chinese govern-
ment between its longtime Communist
ally, North Korea, and its important
new economic partner, South Korea.
And the breakthrough came only a

lades from lawmakers, incliding Sen.
John Warner (R-Va.) and Tim
Hutchison (R-Ark.), who earlier had
signaled they had doubts about her fit-
ness for the job.
The Senate labor panel is expectedjo
vote to send Herman's nominatio
the full Senate following a two-w
congressional recess that starts Friday.
Caifornia shaken by
5. earthquake
Century-old buildings and a modern
overpass were cracked and nerves rattled
yesterday by a magnitude-5.4 earth-
quake, an aftershock of a 1992 temblor.
No injuries were reported in the 7*
a.m. quake, which was centered 12
miles east-northeast of Barstow.
It was the latest of about 60,000
aftershocks to the magnitude-7.3
Landers quake. That temblor on June
28, 1992, was followed within hoursby
a 6.5 quake near Big Bear in the San
Bernardino Mountains. Together, they
killed one person, injured 400 and
caused nearly $100 million in dama
week before U.S. Vice President Al
Gore is scheduled to visit Beijing.
In the end, China's government,
which does not recognize the right of
asylum in diplomatic missions, si
with the South Koreans, accepting an
offer from Philippine authorities to
temporarily harbor the prized defector.
