The White House announced the Washington Summit will begin on
tuesday with President Clinton meeting individually with Israeli Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and then Palestinian Leader Yassar Arafat. After
that, with the peace process in a state of crisis, there are no promises.
SECRETARY OF STATE WARREN CHRISTOPHER:
I THINK WE OUGHT TO RECOGNIZE THE LIMITATIONS. THAT THE PARTIES
ARE QUITE ESTRANGED AND THERE IS A WAR OF VIOLENCE AND KILLINGS.
Despite the President's personal appeals, Egypt's Hosni
Mubarak, a moderate voice in the Arab world refused to attend.
Mubarak is unable to accept Netanyahu's decision to keep open a new
entrance to the controversial Jerusalem tunnel, the opening of which sparked
the latest violence.
The President will begin negotiations with Jordan's King
Hussein, who did agree to play a role in the process.
The White House maintains there are no pre-set conditions for the meetings,
but the purpose is straightforward.
MIKE MCCURRY/WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY:RESTORING CALM, BRINGING AN END TO THE
VIOLENCE, SEEING THE
PARTIES RE-ENGAGE IN THE PEACE PROCESS. THOSE ARE THE OBJECTIVES IN THIS
The White House admits the President is taking a huge political
risk in intervening in the process. In a statement Bob Dole said the U.S.
must demand an unconditional end to the violence. He left it up to his
foreign policy advisors to lash out at the President overall foreign policy
JEANNE KIRKPATRICK/DOLE FOREIGN POLICY ADVISOR: EVERYONE SHARES THE VIEW THAT
AMERICAN FOREIGN POLICY IS IN A
SERIOUS STATE OF DISARRAY WITH ONE FAILURE AFTER ANOTHER.
But administration officials say the violence and the crumbling
peace process was untenable, and privately argue, even if a deal isn't
reached, the President comes out looking and acting Presidential.
PROF. JIM THURBER/AMERICAN UNIVERSITY:
THE ONE THING ABOUT THIS ISSUE IS THAT IT'S FOREIGN POLICY AND MOST AMERICAN'S
DON'T CARE ABOUT FOREIGN POLICY.
The White House admits it is rare for a President to take part in
a process at this level with no idea as to the outcome, but this is a
difference case, with the President only bringing to the table a direct
appeal for peace. RB, CBS News, at the White House.))

The workforce at Lynchburg's "Griffin Pipe Company" is shrinking, following
dozens of layoffs.
Up to 65 employees in the Soil Pipe division were told Friday that was their

employed at the Lynchburg facility.
Some workers affected by the shutdown will be given special consideration

In South Florida, on a popular Haitian radio station-- listeners are
getting the wrong message about AIDS.
Daily, they're told that AIDS is a myth concocted by the health-care
industry to boost business.
A Miami Beach psychologist tells his audience that those who are diagnosed
with AIDS are actually suffering from everyday illnesses.
He says condom use is promoted to curb the Haitian population.
AIDS counselors say many Haitian patients have stopped seeing doctors
because they believe what they're hearing on the radio show.
Nearly 75-percent of American women will develop a yeast infection
sometimes before menopause.
That's why since they became over-the-counter, yeast infection treatments
have doubled in sales...with newer versions constantly hitting the market.
But are most women able to tell the difference between a yeast infection
and sexually transmitted diseases or bladder infections?
A new study published in the Journal of Family Practice suggests that most
In fact, only eleven percent of the women were able to accurately pick out
the symptoms of a yeast infection when described in a questionnaire.
And only 34-percent who had yeast infections before got it right.

gynecological conditions that are similar but potentially more severe.
