vMt UNITED NATIONS AP Palestinians took their case against Israeli settlement in east Jerusalem to the General Assembly today asking it to speak out against a planned Jewish neighborhood in the predominantly Arab quarter The move came despite Israeli warnings that any attempt to bring international pressure would only harm Middle East peacemaking Arab ambassadors to the United Nations asked for the General Assembly debate scheduled for this morning after the United States vetoed a Europeansponsored resolution in the Security Council criticizing Israel for the planned Har Homa project Ambassador Bill Richardson cast Fridays veto only Americas third in the council since the end of the Cold War because Washington prefers to keep Arab Israeli issues out of the United Nations Palestinians see Jewish construction in east Jerusalem as a threat to their hope to make the district the capital of a Palestinian state a hope which Israel insists will never be realized Chubais back Into told MOSCOW AP Barely a year ago President Boris Yeltsin tossed Anatoly Chubais out of the government and millions of Russians said good riddance to the man many blamed for the countrys economic misery But now Yeltsin has again tapped the young ambitious Chubais to help form a new government and carry out reforms meant to boost Russias sagging economy Chubais 41 will hold the post of first deputy prime minister as part of a Cabinet overhaul Yeltsin ordered Tuesday But his actual power is likely to go beyond his title Its widely assumed he will have a say in choosing the new government to replace the one Yeltsin to pjajr role in government economic policy The redhaired Chubais the only Cabinet member besides Prime Minister Viktor Chernomyrdin to have his job guaranteed by Yeltsin in the overhaul remains a figure of controversy Many Russians remember him as the man who sold off state enterprises to a few wellplaced insiders while most everyone else struggled to make ends meet But he has strong support among some businessmen as well as Western governments and bankers who consider him a tough skilled manager whos willing to push ahead with economic reforms even if they are

WMtowator prosscutors oys WASHINGTON AP During the time his old friend Webster Hubbell was under criminal investigation by Whitewater prosecutors President Clinton knew that two longtime political supporters had hired the former associate attorney general the White House acknowledges Whitewater prosecutors are investigating whether Hubbells hiring by Clinton allies in 1994 was part of an effort to keep Hubbell from cooperating with prosecutors in the Whitewater investigation of the president and the first lady The White House said Tuesday the president never asked or suggested that anyone hire Webb But Clinton thinks that at some point he may have heard from Bernard Rapoport or Truman Arnold or both who are old friends of the president that they had hired or intended to hire said White House spokesman Lanny Davis Rapoport an insurance magnate from Waco told reporters last week that he had told people at the White possibly including Clinton that he was hiring Hubbell in 1994 Rapoport made payments to Hubbell he said at the behest of Truman Arnold a Texarkana Texas oilman Rapoport said he understood that Arnold was hiring Hubbell too Hubbell ended up agreeing to cooperate with prosecutors but his memory lapses have frustrated investigators efforts to get to the bottom of Whitewater Dramatic tax ovorhaul still a long way off WASHINGTON AP A dramatic overhaul of the tax code isntiri the cards this year House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Bill Archer says and one reason is Republican disagreements over competing tax plans The first hurdle that we need to get over is unifying the Republican party behind one Archer RTexas said in an interview Tuesday And that means House Majority Leader Dick Armey and I basically are going to have to get together and resolve our differences Thats a major piece thats got to be put in Armey RTexas favors a 17 percent flat tax on all income but Archer advocates a plan that goes much further eliminating the income tax in favor of a consumption tax on goods and services Armey and Sen planned to reintroduce the flat tax proposal today The lack of agreement means Archer will seek to build support for his plan this year with an eye to possibly considering legislation in 1999 I think its going to be very difficult to do that in this he said Lako confirmation f ocusos on flow of socrots WASHINGTON AP Surprisingly for a nominee to head the nations spy service the dominant theme in Anthony Lakes confirmation hearing is why secrets dont flow more freely Senators at Tuesdays opening round hearing wanted to know why Lake and President Clinton failed to learn about an FBI briefing for two National Security Council aides that dealt with alleged attempts by China to influence congressional elections Earlier Lake acknowledged that as Clintons national security adviser he should have informed lawmakers in 1994 about a secret policy change that allowed Iranian arms to flow to Bosnia And Lake who rarely appeared before Congress as Clintons top national security aide and developed a reputation for secretiveness promised repeatedly to keep lawmakers informed of important developments if he is confirmed to headtheCIA If you look back at some recent controversies involving the intelligence community while various mistakes were made too often the core of the problems was overzealous secrecy not sharing enough information among ourselves not sharing enough information with Lake said That is Because of a production problem Archives Anonymous will not appear in todays edition of the HeraldZeitung see the
