LOANS
Continued from Page 1
dies from the government to offset some
of their losses, some are still not satisfied
with the profits they will receive under
the proposed deal, Butts said.
"They'll still receive a reduction in
the amount of income guaranteed from
the government," Butts said.
Butts said the lack of a marketplace to
decide loan rates has caused the political
disputes over loan rates. Student loan
rates, unlike other loans, have their rates
set by Congress rather than a market.
"This is a political negotiating game
about what the rate should be, and it has
a long way to go," Butts said.
Some lenders say they may drop out of

the market due to decreased profits from
guaranteed loans. But Butts said students
still will be able to find loans they need.
"There will be enough players left in
the game to cover demand (for guaran-
teed loans)," Butts said; "It won't be
much of a problem, but it depends on
what lenders in Michigan decide to do."
Both Mansour and Butts said the
major obstacle facing the funding pro-
posal at this point is whether the House
Budget Committee will agree to pro-
viding tax money to lenders.
"That is the question now," Mansour
said. "There will be dollar questions on
the floor" of the House.
Butts said the interest rate debate is
far from over, but he said he is pleased
with the current proposal.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Stunned
by Kathleen Willey's dramatic TV
appearance, the White House
launched an all-out campaign yes-
terday to discredit her allegation of
a crude sexual advance by President
Clinton. Aides released a friendly
exchange of letters between Clinton
and Willey in which she calls her-
self his "No. 1 fan."
Clinton said he was "mystified
and disappointed" by her description
of his behavior during their 1993
White House meeting. "Nothing
improper happened," Clinton told
reporters.
In Sunday night's CBS-TV "60
Minutes" show watched by nearly 20
million Americans, the soft-spoken for-
mer Democratic fund-raiser and ex-
White House aide said of her encounter
with Clinton, she " just felt overpow-
ered."
The president's advisers said a
series of letters from Willey to
Clinton and his Oval Office admin-
istrator, Nancy Hernreich, cast
doubt on her statement that she was
left angry and feeling betrayed by
Clinton. Yet they privately conceded
that those same documents could
raise questions about why Clinton
was so eager to help Willey find bet-
ter employment after the encounter.
Robert Bennett, the president's
lawyer, said last night, "I felt badly

for the president" about the inter-
view with Willey.
"I felt that not all of the facts that
could have been presented were pre-
sented," Bennett said on CNN's
"Larry King Live."
In chatty letters signed "Fondly,
Kathleen," which she wrote after the
incident, Willey requested high-
powered jobs, sought a position on
his 1996 re-election campaign and
complained about having "slipped
through the cracks" when it came
time to issue White House
Christmas party invitations. In addi-
tion to the nine letters she wrote to
Clinton after the incident, Willey
sent him an invitation to a family
engagement party.
As she was seeking employment
opportunities from Clinton, includ-
ing an ambassadorship, and main-
taining the lively letter-writing rela-
tionship, White House memos also
show that she left 1 I telephone mes-
sages for Clinton.
Six of those calls came in the
three months after the disputed
meeting. "Kathleen Willey is com-
ing in Friday and wants to see you,"
read a typical memo.
The White House arranged for her to
go to two international conferences and
in a note scrawled to an aide about
Willey, the president asked, "Can we do
this for her?"

A UDTHE ATIO
Cohen suggests separation of sexes
WASHINGTON - Defense Secretary William Cohen, moving to fight sexus
harassment in the armed forces, directed the military services yesterday to begi
housing men and women recruits in separate areas but to continue integrating ther
in basic training.
Acting on the recommendations of an advisory commission that searched foi
causes of sexual harassment in the military and inequality of opportunities fe
women, Cohen also said the services need more female recruiters and female train
ers, and should improve screening procedures for all trainers.
Those steps stem directly from sexual misconduct cases at the Army's Aberdee
Proving Ground, a Maryland facility where male drill instructors preyed on wome
subordinates.
Cohen's directive addressed a number of the advisory commission's con
cerns but stopped short of adopting one major recommendation: that male an
female troops train separately in the Army, Navy and Air Force, as they now d
in the Marines.
He said Pentagon officials believe recruits in those branches must go thro0
basic training together if they are to fight together.
Cohen's directives are the latest steps in what has proved to be a difficult strug
gle to integrate women into the male-dominated military world.

Child care expert
Dr. Spock dies at 94
Dr. Benjamin Spock, the pediatri-
cian whose practical "Book of Baby
and Child Care" became the bible of
American parents for two genera-
tions and whose opposition to the
Vietnam War made him one of the
most controversial figures of the six-
ties and seventies, has died, it was
reported yesterday.
Spock was 94 when he died Sunday
in his San Diego home, said Dr.
Stephen Pauker, his physician. There
was no specific cause of death reported,
but in recent years, Spock had suffered
a heart attack, stroke and several bouts
of pneumonia. Just last month, his wife
was publicly asking for money from
friends and family to help pay his
$10,000-per-month medical bills.
Spock won fame and fortune with
his book, first published in 1946, which
sold nearly 50 million copies in 30 lan-
guages and became America's second-
best seller - with only the Bible out-
pacing it. It told parents to "trust your-

self ... you know more than you thin
you do."
"He was really the first person to tal
about listening to children, which i
such a catch phrase now," British psy
chologist Penelope Leach, author o
best-selling "Baby and Child," sai
from her London office.
McKinney gets rank
reduction, reprimand
FORT BELVOIR, Va. - Sgt. Ma
Gene McKinney was spared a priso
sentence yesterday and busted dow
one rank for obstruction of justic
after pleading with a military jur
let him retire "with some form
honor."
The Army had asked for a six-mont
prison sentence and a demotion to th
lowest rank, private.
The same jury that acquitte
McKinney, once the Army's highes
ranking enlisted man, on Friday c
crudely pressuring six military wome
for sex, imposed the sentence after tw
hours of deliberations.

Vatican apologizes
for lack of action
BERLIN - The Roman Catholic
Church formally apologized yesterday
for failing to take more decisive action in
challenging the Nazi regime during
World War 11 to stop the extermination of
more than 6 million Jews.
But in a long-awaited document on the
church's role in the Holocaust, the
Vatican defended Pope Pius XII, who
headed the church during the war, from
accusations that he turned a blind eye to
the systematic killing of Jews. Some crit-
ics say Pius was motivated by church
religious prejudices dating from the
death of Jesus Christ.
Pope John Paul II, in a preface to the
landmark publication titled "We
Remember: A Reflection on the Shoah,"
expressed hope that the historic declara-
tion of repentance by the Vatican about
Catholic shortcomings in dealing with
the Holocaust "will indeed help to heal
the wounds of past misunderstandings
and injustices."
First reactions from Jewish leaders in
Israel and the United States were mixed.

More than any of his predecessor
John Paul has made reconciliation wit
the Jewish people a priority of hisp
cy. During his 20-year tenure as lea
the world's I billion Catholics, he h
become the first pope to visit concentr
tion camp sites and to preach in a syn
gogue. He pushed the Vatican to op
diplomatic relations with Israel in 199
Suharto unmoved by
global fimance officers
JAKARTA, Indonesia - 9
finance officials from Europe, tF
United States and Asia descended c
this capital city yesterday in an attem]
to get President Suharto to accept ec<
nomic reforms demanded by ti
International Monetary Fund.
Suharto smiled and nodded and sa'
he would be flexible. But t
Indonesian leader, who apparently sti
favors the much-criticized idea of cr
ating a currency board to peg theO
ah at a fixed exchange rate to thee
dollar, remained noncommittal.
