Ex-Reaganauts carry foreign banners The Salina Journal Friday, January 10,1986 PageN7 Farmers has a 25% discount on non-smoker auto insurance. WASHINGTON (AP) - Since he left the inner sanctum at the White House last May, Michael K. Deaver has maintained his decades-old friendship with President Reagan while launching a lucrative private consulting business, with foreign countries among his clients. It is just that type of relationship that has drawn the ire of congressional critics, who say that former officials such as Deaver are capitalizing on their governmental connections for financial gain. "In essence, former high-level public servants are cashing in on knowledge and expertise obtained at taxpayer expense, 1 ' said Rep. Marcy Kaptur,D-Ohio. Sometimes, Kaptur said, the lobbyists' work may be at odds with the best interests of U.S. policy. That argument is "ludicrous," said Stanton Anderson, a former deputy assistant secretary of State between 1973-75 who represents Haiti, Japan .and Brazil. "American policymakers aren't going to change policy because someone calls them." STEVE GLENN Realtor Bus. 827-0331 Home 827-2200 Justice Department figures tabulated by U.S. News & World Report show that in 1984, U.S. lobbyists were paid $14.2 million by Japan, $7.5 million by Canada; $6.3 million by West Germany; $5.4 million each by the Soviet Union and Ireland. Michael K. Deaver & Associates receives an annual fee of $105,000 from the government of Canada, which wants the United States to crack down on the utilities believed to be the source of acid rain. Deaver, the president's former deputy chief of staff, also lists a Korean trading company and a Panama-based sugar group among his clients. Although Deaver is still close to the Reagans, he told The Washington Post he sees no conflict with his new job. "I would never talk to her (Nancy Reagan) about a client. The Reagans are friends of mine. I talk to them about other things all the time," he said. As for his clients, John Fieldhouse, a spokesman for the Canadian Embassy, said his government is pleased with Deaver's advice on acid rain questions. Deaver is not the only former Reagan administration official to turn to lobbying. The firm of Black, Manafort, Stone is paid $600,000 from Jonas Savimbi's rebel group in Angola. As part of his work for Savimbi, Christopher Lehman, a former National Security Council staffer and the brother of Navy Secretary John Lehman, attends congressional hearings and contacts people in the Make That Old Chair Like New!

C^ A short list of lobbyists WASHINGTON (AP) — Here are some of the people who were employed by the Reagan administration or President Reagan's 1980 or 1984 campaigns and are now working as lobbyists for foreign governments. • Christopher Lehman, former staffer on the National Security Council. He is associated with the firm o£ Black, Manafort, Stone and Kelly, which lists among its clients the Bahamas, Barbados, St. Lucia, Dominican Republic, Nigeria, and the UNITA rebels in Angola. Also associated with the firm is Lee Atwater, a former White House aide who works as a political consultant. • Richard V. Allen, a former national security adviser. His firm, Richard V. Allen Co., represents Japan and the Taiwan Footwear Manufacturers Association. • Robert Gray, inaugural chairman for President Reagan in 1980. His firm, Gray and Co., represents Morocco, Canada, Cayman Islands, Turkey, Haiti, Korea and Saudi Arabia. The firm also employs Daniel Murphy, former chief of staff for Vice President George Bush. • Pete Teeley, former press secretary to Vice President Bush. The Teeley-Macdonald Partnership represents the Seychelles. • Sheila Tate, former press secretary to First Lady Nancy Reagan, works for the public relations firm of Burson-Marsteller. She has represented a petroleum company in Venezuela. • Michael K. Deaver, former White House deputy chief of staff. His firm, Michael K. Deaver and Associates, represents Canada, a Korean trading company and a Panamanian sugar group. • Former White House aide Joseph Canzeri, who formed the Canzeri Co., has done fund-raising for the New National Party in Grenada. • Les Janka, former deputy press secretary to President Reagan, has worked for Jordan. • Langhorne Motley, a former assistant secretary of state has represented a Brazilian shoe manufacturing company through his firm, L.A.

Lehman's goal is to get money for UNITA, Savimbi's guerrilla group battling Angola's Marxist government. The socialist government in the Seychelles has retained Pete Teeley, Vice President George Bush's former spokesman, and his partner for $6,000 a month. Teeley said he serves as the point man between the Seychelles government and the State Department. "They have no ambassador here so I maintain regular contact with U.S. officials," he said. The Seychelles is an island nation in the Indian Ocean off the coast of East Africa. Others once affiliated with the administration and now employed by foreigners include Richard V. Allen, former national security adviser; Sheila Tate, Nancy Reagan's former press secretary; Langhorne Motley, former assistant secretary of State, and Les Janka, former White House deputy press secretary. Motley described his duties for the Brazilian shoe manufacturers trade association as analyzing and defining "the political climate and economic atmosphere" in the United States on shoe imports. Last Dec. 17, Reagan vetoed a bill that would have restricted U.S. imports of non-rubber footwear to 60 percent of the U.S. market for eight years. Republicans are not the only former government officials handling accounts for foreigners. Some big-name Democrats with clients abroad are former CIA director William Colby, former arms control negotiator Paul Warnke, and John West, former ambassador to Saudi Arabia. The Justice Department requires foreign agents to file, but agency officials acknowledge the 850 registered agents do not reflect their true numbers. Joseph Clarkson, head of the foreign agents' office, says there are perhaps 30 percent to 60 percent more unregistered agents than registered agents. His agency rarely prosecutes violators, however, because of it doesn't have the staff to pursue investigations. There also are also a variety of government ethics laws on the subject, including one stipulating that former senior government employees must not contact ex-colleagues. Rep. Howard Wolpe, D-Mjch., has introduced legislation thafwould bar top-level officials from representing or advising a foreign concern for at least 10 years after leaving government service. "What has happened is that the American government has become a finishing school for highly paid lobbyists for foreign interests," said Wolpe, chairman of the House Africa subcommittee. "People who have had the privilege to serve at the highest levels of government have chosen to use the status, insider's knowledge and special access they acquired in office on behalf of foreign interests," he said. Robert Strauss, the U.S. trade representative in the Carter administration and now a Washington law- ROOFING —Free Estimates— 827-0107 Hot Asphalt Specialist All types and sizes References 'Insured 'Guaranteed yer who has worked for Japan and China, said he is opposed to more laws regulating conduct. The government should be encouraging people to serve "not discouraging them," he said. "You've got to make judgment calls," said Wayne Herman, a spokesman for Black, Manafort, Stone. "We want to make money," Herman said, but he added the firm draws a line on who it represents. For instance, he said, it would never sign on with a country like Libya. Nancy Drabble, executive director of Congress Watch, a public interest group monitoring Congress, said she questions the value of paying so much for lobbyists. "The question really is whether some of these foreign countries are getting their money's worth. They're buying the name." Moose on the move THUNDER BAY, Ont. (AP) — Lake Superior blocks a natural migration of moose from Canada's Algonquin Park in Ontario to Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Now, U.S. and Canadian wildlife officials have arranged a trade that will repopulate the area with moose for the first time since post-Civil War timber operations drove them out. The trade involves 150 wild turkeys from Michigan for 30 adult moose from Canada. The moose should find their new habitat comfortable, wild life officials say, because it is devoid of two natural enemies: wolves and a parasite carried by deer that is deadly to moose.
