JONES' LAWYERS SUBPOENA FLOWERS

Paula Jones' attorneys in her sexual harassment lawsuit against President Clinton Tuesday subpoenaed Gennifer Flowers, the former cabaret singer who says she had a long affair with Clinton.

They also took the deposition of Dolly Kyle Browning, a former high school classmate of the president who charges that she too was his lover.

Ms. Flowers' attorney Rugger Burke said his client was subpoenaed Tuesday to give a deposition on Nov. 14. He said Ms. Jones' lawyers requested tape recordings of conversations between Ms. Flowers and Clinton and any correspondence between the two.

She almost derailed Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign by claiming she had a 12-year affair with him while he was governor of Arkansas.

Clinton says he never had any relationship with Ms. Flowers and denies Ms. Jones' allegations that he solicited sex from her in a Little Rock hotel room in 1991. Ms. Jones was a state employee at the time, and Clinton was governor.

Clinton's lawyers Monday asked a federal judge in Little Rock to block several depositions already planned in the lawsuit, which is scheduled to go to trial next May.

One of the depositions went ahead anyway Tuesday.

Ms. Browning was interviewed for more than three hours at the offices of Rader, Campbell, Fisher & Pyke, the Dallas law firm representing Ms. Jones.

She declined to discuss her deposition but said she was a high school classmate of Clinton in Arkansas and that they had at times been lovers during a 30-year relationship.

"At times it was platonic and at others it was more than that," she said in a telephone interview.

Clinton's attorney in the Jones lawsuit, Robert Bennett, has said he doubts Ms. Jones wants to reach an out-of-court settlement because, he alleged, she thinks she would be more marketable if the case goes to trial even if she loses.
