(SCRIPT)
(Spuer: Ramallah, West Bank)

As she visits Middle Eastern leaders, the good news for Secretary of State Albright is that Israelis and Palestinians are negotiating at the moment, instead of fighting. The bad news is, the talks are going nowhere. More than six years into the peace process Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat knows his people want independence, not more delays.

SOT/Madeleie Albright/Secretary of State: The moment of truth is fast

approaching in Israeli-Palestinian peace.
Israels Prime Minister Barak though is offering the Palestinians a state in name only, with the West Bank cut into three pieces. The reason for his foot-dragging - hardline opposition within Baraks own supposedly pro-peace government.
Schulman OC close: Albright wants to bring Barak and Arafat to Washington for a summit with President Clinton - but shell have to get the two sides a lot closer to a deal, before that.

Melanie Uczen is still a little dazed ...still finding it hard to believe.

(NAT: I'm shocked...basically.


Shocked because just a few hours earlier the 23-year-old cocktail waitress had served a customer who was very grateful.
it was the end of the night...guys ordered drinks....I got a good tip..c'mon now...well 10 thousand dollars.
That's right ten thousand big ones...the bill for the drinks came to nine dollars.....and there was no mistake reading the size of the tip....

SOT: he told me the thought I was a wonderful cocktail waitress and that

I deserved it...said he wanted me to go back to school and be a doctor.
Melanie said her customer said he was a doctor from England..and when he learned that she recently graduated college and wanted to go to graduate school he gave her the huge tip.

SOT: said he worked hard for his money...told him I wanted to pay my way

thru college...that's what I want to do.
Club manager Shawn Krutsinger said the incident shook up everybody in the club.

SOT: I kept telling here see if it goes thru...he looked like a nice

guy...hope he keeps his word.
So why does Melani think she got such a huge tip?

(smiling....14:35:40 good quality service...and have fun with your
