Top News             Castro Backs Clinton on Scandal

                 HAVANA (AP) -- Fidel Castro wished President
                       Clinton luck today in overcoming problems
                       linked to allegations he had an affair with
                       A White House intern, blaming Sen. Jesse
                       Helms for fomenting the  scandal.

                     ``I think the actions of (Clinton's) adversaries
                       are really dirty,'' Castro said. ``It's a real
                       example of the things that occur in that country,
                       of the lack of ethics.''

                       The Cuban leader accused right-wing U.S.poticians
                       led by Helms, R-N.C., a longtime Castro foe, of
                       waging a campaign against Clinton with the

                       ``I sincerely hope that he can overcome'' the
                       problems, Castro said. His comments came during a
                       four-hour talk last night and today on Pope John
                       Paul II's visit to Cuba last month.

  In summary, Bill has a valuable new ally. Being of outstanding
character, Fidel should easily fit on his team.
