*Buddhist nuns say Gore received illegal donations

WASHINGTON (AP) - Buddhist nuns
acknowledged yesterday that their temple ille-
gally reimbursed donors after a fund-raiser
attended by Vice President Al Gore and later
destroyed or altered records to avoid embarrass-
- The testimony by a trio of nuns, opening a
new round of Senate hearings, intensified the
focus on Gore, whose own 2000 presidential
ambitions could be hindered by questions over
his 1996 role. President Clinton defended Gore
anew, saying the vice president had followed the
law in raising money last year.
The nuns, from the Hsi Lai Temple outside Los
Angeles, told senators how temple leaders went to
the White House in March 1996 for a meeting
with Gore and invited him to visit their temple.
Afterwards, the temple and two fund-raisers

who had facilitated the meeting with Gore
planned the event as a fund-raiser.
The White House said yesterday the vice pres-
ident had no idea the event was going to be a
fund-raiser, although his staff should have
The records were destroyed last fall once the
controversy over Gore's attendance at the event
had erupted during the final weeks of the presi-
dential campaign, one nun told the Senate panel
investigating campaign fund-raising abuses.
Man Ho said she destroyed a list of people
who had donated $42,500 to attend the luncheon
that she had prepared for Democratic fund-rais-
er John Huang. Once the fund-raiser became an
issue, "I was afraid the document might cause
embarrassment to the temple," she told senators.
Man Ho also testified that she destroyed lists of

document might cause
embarrassment to the
temple ."

names of people who attended the luncheon that
bore their telephone numbers and Social Security
numbers - information the Secret Service need-
ed to clear the guests into the temple.
Wearing nut-brown robes, the three nuns,
their hair cropped close, testified under grants of

immunity from prosecution conferred by the
Senate Governmental Atairs Committee. They
were the first witnesses after the panel's hearings
resumed following a month long recess.
The nuns testified a day after Attorney
General Janet Reno announced she was consid-
ering opening a preliminary investigation to
determine whether an independent counsel
should investigate calls Gore made to donors
from the White House. Federal law bars political
fund raising on government property.
Clinton, vacationing on Martha's Vineyard,
Mass., stood by Gore, saying, "I believe what he
did was legal" Clinton said he was confident
Reno would make a determination based on the
The Senate hearings turned to the temple
fund-raiser as Republicans sought to undercut

Gore's assertion that he did not know whon he
attended the April 29, 1996, lunch that it Nas
organized to raise political donations.
Man Ho said the temple began laying pjns
for the fund-raiser soon after its leaders met uWith
Gore on March 13, 1996, in the White Hous .
The White House says Gore did not discuss
fund-raising during the meeting when he accept-
ed an invitation to visit the temple from the
group's Venerable Master Hsing Yan.- Th1
Buddhist leader was accompanied by Huang aid
Democratic fund-raiser Maria Hsia, as a wlas
the temple's abbess.
Man Ho testified that Hsia and Huang were
involved at every stage of the planning and-beth"
attended the luncheon. Huang was the master of
ceremonies and Hsia, a devotee of the teT le,-
sat at the head table, she said.

LONDON - Stung by accusations
that the royal family has been indiffer-
ent to Britain's searing pain over the
death of Princess Diana, Queen
Elizabeth I yesterday scheduled an
extraordinary national broadcast and
Buckingham Palace loosened its proto-

Prince Charles and Diana's sons,
Princes William and Harry, appeared
at the gates of their Scottish castle to
quietly inspect flowers left by mourn-
ers there.
Queen Elizabeth's youngest sons,
Princes Andrew and Edward, appeared
in London at St. James's Palace, where
Diana's coffin lies in a chapel. The two
mingled with crowds waiting in hours-

appeared to have been counseled by
Prime Minister Tony Blair's govern-
ment. As criticism grew, the prime
minister had come out swinging for
the family Wednesday night. "They
are trying to make all the practical
arrangements of the funeral at the
same time as comforting the two
boys. They share our grief very
much and we should respect that,"
Blair said.
Yesterday morning, though,
Britain's four populist tabloids all pub-
lished blistering attacks on the royal
silence in what one observer called
"some of the strongest criticisms of
the monarch voiced during her (44-
year) reign."
"Where is Our Queen? Where is Her
Flag?" demanded The Sun. "Show Us
You Care," said The Express. "Your
People Are Suffering. Speak to Us
Ma'am' said The Mirror..
It was a blustery comeback from sen-
sationalist tabloids that had been an insa-
tiable market for paparazzi pictures of
Diana but had not seriously addressed the
issue of privacy since her death.
The queen's spokesperson, Geoffrey
Crawford, made a rare television state-
ment yesterday, after Blair had con-
ferred with Prince Charles.
"The queen has asked me to say
that the royal family has been hurt by
suggestions that they are indifferent
to the country's sorrows at the tragic
death of the princess of Wales,"
Crawford said. "The princess was a
much loved national figure, but she
was also a mother whose sons miss
her deeply. Prince William and Prince
Harry themselves want to be with the
father and grandparents at this time in
the quiet haven of Balmoral.
"As their grandmother, the queen is
