New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 9, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas HerakJZettunaO Sunday July 0 3 A considers better relations with Vietnam WASHINGTON AP The Clinton administration is praising Vietnams cooperation in identifying the whereabouts of missing Ameri can servicemen rejecting claims by MIA advocates that Hanoi is holding back The debate over Vietnams coop eration is intensifying as President Clinton nears a decision on whether to reestablish full diplomatic rela tions with the former communist adversary after a 20year lapse State Department spokesman Nicholas Burns appeared on Friday to foreshadow a decision by Clin ton to take that step 1 think a lot of people in our gov ernment believe that we have reached a new level of cooperation with the Vietnamese on the issue of POWs and Burns told reporters He also stressed Vietnams polit ical and economic importance in Southeast Asia Vietnam is a country of emerging importance in Southeast Asia cer tainly an important country eco nomically for the United States and other he said He also said Vietnam plays a key role in regional security and will soon join the sixnation Association of Southeast Asian Nations a group that long has had close ties to the United States But veterans and family groups are arguing against diplomatic recog nition on grounds that Vietnam has not lived up to the demands for an accounting that Clinton had set as a condition for normal relations These groups have been increas ingly active since word spread last month that Secretary of State Warren Christopher had recommended to Clinton that after 20 years the time for normal relations had arrived The National Alliance of Fami lies based in Washington state admonished its members last week to Call telegraph or write the president now We must stop normalization If you already have called and writ ten do it again and The National League of Families of American Prisoners and Missing in Southeast Asia based in Wash ington also is active in the cam paign Asked about her plans Ann Mills Griffith the leagues executive direc tor said Friday Truth Weve got the She said group members will be taking their case to Congress John Sommer executive director of the Washington office of the American Legion said his group plans a simi lar strategy More than Americans remain unaccounted for from the Indochina war Griffith said only eight Americans have been account ed for in the past 17 months If Clinton decided to establish nor mal ties with Vietnam Republicans likely will make it a campaign issue House Speaker Newt Gingrich told CNN on Friday This is not the time to be cozying up to dic Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole said at a news con ference in St Paul I dont share President Clintons views on normalizing relations with However Sen John McCain R a former Vietnam war pris oner favors normal ties as do business groups And not all veterans groups are opposed The Veterans of Foreign Wars for instance said in a resolu tion approved last month that it would go along with normalization if it furthers the fullest possible accounting of the missing service men The administration lifted a trade embargo against Vietnam in Febru ary 1994 contending at the time that the step would enhance Hanois cooperation The two countries also established lowlevel diplomatic liai son offices Study finds Texas law firms are reaping bigger profits Gingrich must answer ethics charges WASHINGTON AP Called to appear before the House ethics com mittee Speaker Newt Gingrich and publisher Rupert Murdoch say they welcome the chance to set the record straight on a controversial book con tract In a statement released Friday Gin grich the subject of a series of ethics complaints filed by Democrats said he had gone out of my way to comply with the letter and spirit of all House And Murdoch stressed he was appearing voluntarily after earlier pro viding other information to the panel In an unusual development both men announced their own appearances leaving it to the committee to respond The members of the house ethics committee look forward to hearing Mr Gingrichs testimony before the com said Rep Nancy Johnson R the panels chairwoman The planned testimony marks a new phase in the politically charged inves tigation The panel has been split along partisan lines on appointment of an outside counsel to investigate Gingrich RGa Democrats have recently accused Republicans of dragging their heels in investigating the first GOP speaker in 40 years The ethics committee has been investigating a series of complaints against Gingrich filed by Democrats alleging violations of House rules in connection with the contract for the book as well as a college course the speaker taught last winter Gingrich announced his own planned appearance on a day in which he signed copies of his newly pub lished book To Renew at a bookstore a few blocks from the Capitol The book deal has been con troversial for months in part because Gingrich initially agreed to a deal under which he would receive a mil lion advance on royalties from Harper Collins publishers for writing the vol ume In the resulting furor he back tracked saying he would take a advance supplemented by a percentage of the sales There was further controversy when it was disclosed last winter that Gin grich and Murdoch owner of Harper Collins had met briefly in the Capitol and as the speaker belatedly acknowledged had talked about pending legislation Murdoch owns numerous media properties and has an interest in telecommunications leg islation pending in Congress While Gingrich submitted the con tract for the committees approval he signed the deal before receiving a response back from the panel Classes

and belttightening have appar ently paid off for a oncebloated Texas legal industry The states 25 largest firms saw profits jump percent in 1994 according to a survey by Texas Lawyer magazine Of those 19 reported increased rev enue Efficiency is apparently up too as the report indicated the amount of revenue per lawyer is up percent After quite a few years of down sizing getting the corporate reli gion the cuts started showing up at the bottom said Joseph Calve editor of the Dallasbased publication He said it was the best year for Texas law firms since 1990 The oil boom and subsequent bust that loaded dockets with bankruptcy cases were the glory years for the Texas legal profession Many firms became oversized and slothlike mak ing cutbacks inevitable Another boost of efficiency has been improved technology Firms such as Houstons Fulbright Jaworski the largest in Texas have boosted their reliance on the PC Six years ago very few lawyers in our firm used adminis trative partner Jack Vaughan told the Houston Chronicle Now almost all of our lawyers use He said only two of the firms 620 lawyers use computers regularly Prior to the electronic revolution lawyers relied on another staffer who took dictation typed the document and handdelivered it Attorneys now type their own material into computers and transmit it to their clients over the phone lines The downsizing trend has been great for lawyers but tough on young attor neys entering the profession Law schools are full churning out graduates and its harder and harder for those graduates to find Calve said Monfhly for
