comply with the Starr subpoena.
The deposition is critical to Starr,
because if he can prove that Clinton's tes-
timony is false, the president could face a
charge of perjury. Clinton has not yet
reviewed and signed the transcript from
the six-hour deposition. Under court
rules, he has 30 days to amend his
answers but would have to explain any
During the deposition, Clinton was
questioned about five to seven women
who were identified as possibly having
a sexual encounter or receiving an
unsolicited sexual advance from the
president since he was first elected in
1992, sources familiar with his testimo-
ny said yesterday. Clinton denied sexu-
al relations or advances with regard to
each of them, according to the sources,
including Lewinsky and Kathleen
Willey, another former White House
aide who has said the president kissed
and groped her.
ihose women were in addition to an
undetermined number "e was asked
about from his days as governor of
Arkansas. Among those brought up at
the deposition was Gennifer Flowers,
and sources have said Clinton acknowl-
edged an affair with her in the 1970s.
During the deposition, sources said,
Judge Wright limited Jones' lawyers to
asking about women who stood to bene-
fit or suffer from Clinton's governmental
power. Jones charges that her career as a
low-level state clerk was stymied
because she rebuffed a Clinton proposi-
tion; Flowers said she won a state job
after her relationship with Clinton began.
The Clinton legal team was long
aware that Flowers' name would come
up in the Jones case and became certain
Lewinsky's would as well when her
name appeared on a witness list provid-
ed by Jones' lawyers late last year. One
source said yesterday that Lewinsky
first came to the attention of Jones'
lawyers through three anonymous tele-
phone calls from someone with a

Students should raise their concerns to
help educate one another, Ransom said.
"In raising awareness, it helps in let-
ting students know they're not alone in

Kevin Pimentel, president of the
Asian Pacific American Law Students
Association, said many members of the
organization chose the University
because of the diverse atmosphere.
"For a lot of students in my organi-
zation, it is important that there is an
atmosphere of diversity," said
Pimentel, a Law second-year student.
"If we lose affirmative action, we con-
sequently lose any programs targeted at
minority groups that help them adjust

have not expressed feelings that they
"The lawsuit is not a challenge to the
students who are already here,"
Pimentel said. "It makes people afraid
of the future environment."
Affirmative action has not
become a detriment to the
University, despite the pending law-
suits, Pimentel said.
"If affirmative action has created
opportunity for them, its something
they welcome and they don't feel stig-
matized at all," Pimentel said.
Korean Student Association
President Jeanah Hong, said no one has
brought concerns of inadequacy to her.
"For some reason people don't think
affirmative action is aimed toward
Asians," said Hong, an LSA senior.
"Everyone is affected by affirmative
action, even Caucasians."
"Affirmative action is totally
implemented into the admissions
process and it affects every person,"
Secretary and Vice President for
University Relations Walter Harrison
said he has heard a great deal of sup-
port from minority students for the
University's "unwavering commitment
to affirmative action."
Harrison said the attention given to
affirmative action may affect some stu-
dents in a negative way.
"That kind of discussion makes them
feel uncomfortable and self-con-
scious," Harrison said. "It's natural
when many people are raising issues
like this that the people affected are

Clinton prepares activist Union speech
WASHINGTON - Under a heavy cloud of suspicion, President Clinton goes
before the nation tomorrow with a State of the Union address offering the first bal-
anced budget in 30 years along with big spending increases for schools, child care,
medical research and the environment.
After years of austerity imposed by troubling deficits, Clinton will present
decidedly activist agenda for this midterm election year. 4
He wants to expand the Peace Corps, give consumers a "bill of rights" in health care
plans, protect children from smoking and make big investments in AIDS treatment,
food safety and medical research. He also wants to open Medicare to younger retirees,
encourage small businesses to establish pension plans, and fix the Social Security sys-
tem and Medicare before the baby boom generation starts collecting benefits.
Emboldened by Clinton's legal and political troubles, Republicans will counter
with their own plans for improving education, cutting taxes, overhauling the IRS
and expanding the war against drugs.
The big question, though, is how much of Clinton's message will penetrate the
fog of uncertainty about his presidency after allegations he had an affair with a
young intern and urged her to lie about it.
"He's going to have a heck of a hard time making himself heard on the State o
the Union," said Colgate University political scientist Michael Johnston.
Asian crisis boosts
NEW YORK - In Thailand, hotels
are quoting room rates in dollars and
foreign airlines want to do the same
with air fares. In Singapore, businesses
are turning local bank accounts into
dollars. In Russia, even maids and
mechanics hoard dollars as informal
The turbulence in Asia that has rocked
financial markets around the globe has
boosted the dollar, giving it more pres-
tige than it has had in many years and
making it the currency of choice.
"The dollar is king," said Allen
Sinai, chief global economist at
Primark Decision Economics.
That's a big change from the late
1980s and early 1990s when the
Japanese yen and German mark tow-
ered over the dollar. Americans travel-
ing overseas found their dollars bought
little, and imported goods were often
priced out of reach. It was less than
three years ago that the dollar fell to a
post-World War 11 low against the
Now, with the U.S. economy wind-
ing up its seventh year of expansion,
inflation running at a slow pace and
unemployment at a 24-year low, the
buck is riding high.
House panel presseD
CIA for raw reports
WASHINGTON - Republican
members of the House intelligence com-
mittee are demanding access to raw
human intelligence reports on a contro-
versial foreign-policy issue. It is the first
test for CIA Director George Tenet in the
decade-long struggle between the
Congress and an administration ova
access to sensitive intelligence.
The House members are seeking access
to the same reports being passed to the
president and other top national-security
policy-makers, according to sources on
Capitol Hill and in the administration. One
source, who asked not to be identified, said
the intelligence requested by the commit-
tee involves "an ongoing hot question-of
policy " which "has a volatile political
aspect" but declined to identify the issue

Pope s visit a risk for
HAVANA - Although he steadfast-
ly refuses to allow gambling in Cuba,
President Fidel Castro rolled the dice
when he invited Pope John Paul 11 to
visit this closed communist island -
with thousands of foreign journalists in
It is no secret that Cuba's economy
has been in a shambles since the col-
lapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, and
that political dissent is anathema with-
in Castro's realm. At the same time, the
pontiff is a staunch anti-Communist
and a promoter of democracy and
The risk for Castro was that as the

papal swing through this island's
biggest cities, the pope's presence

tem here would provide an opening
for people to protest, leading to a
public-relations disaster for the
Moreover, observers said that if
the pope's visit had been marred by
disturbances, dogmatists within the
