Presidential friend Webster L. Hubbell says Kenneth W. Starr's prosecutors asked him for details about the Clintons' sex lives and his own. In an interview with the New Yorker magazine that was made public Sunday, Hubbell said prosecutors seemed especially interested in speculation about First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton and former Deputy White House Counsel Vincent Foster. He said the inquiries were connected with Starr's investigation of Foster's death in 1993. Three earlier investigations had found that Foster killed himself with a shot to the head, and Starr's office eventually agreed with that conclusion.

Former Clinton aide Webster L. Hubbell and the Rose Law Firm have settled a lawsuit filed by a couple who alleged that he mishandled a problem involving a business loan. The settlement avoided a jury trial that was set to begin Tuesday.

The Rose Law Firm did the legal work on a 1985 land deal for Madison Guaranty Savings & Loan that involved "fictitious" transactions and led to losses large enough to bankrupt the S&L, the inspector general of the Resolution Trust Corp. reported Friday. The deal, which involved a number of prominent Arkansans, including the current governor, was criticized as early as 1986 by bank examiners who said Madison relied on a straw buyer to purchase the land.

As even his critics concede, Webster Hubbell is a likable man. Standing well over 6 feet tall, with sleepy eyes and drooping lips, the former Arkansas football star is invariably described as a gentle bear of a man more apt to voice concern about others than himself. Said a Washington lawyer who has tried, with scant success, to pry information from Hubbell under oath: "You spend several hours with the guy--you like him. He's a nice guy."
