                        STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT

     Hillary and I were deeply saddened to learn of the death of
Congressman Herbert Bateman.

     For more than thirty years, Herb Bateman served the people of Virginia
with honor and distinction.  As a veteran of the Air Force and a member of
the U.S. House of Representatives, he worked to support our armed forces,
and was a strong advocate of fiscal discipline and a balanced budget.

     Herb Bateman was a fine man and dedicated public servant who will be
missed by many.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Laura, their
family and their friends.
