The cast of characters includes Jordan's King Hussein, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, and finally Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.
They've all accepted President Clinton's invitation for a summit aimed at defusing tensions between Israel and the Palestinians.
An invitation also went out to Egyptian President Mubarak. But officials say President Clinton wasn't able to persuade Mubarak to come... during a phone conversation today.
Mubarak is angry with Israel over the policies of the new Israeli government, and he's sending his foreign minister instead.
Officials say Egypt was behind Yasser Arafat's own hesitation to go to Washington.
Talks are scheduled for TWO days.

Between 60 to 65 employees in the Soil Pipe division were told Friday that was their last day on the job.

Vice president Wayne Holofchak (HALL-uff-chak) says the layoffs are not based on the quality of the workforce or its product.
Holofchak says about 500 people are employed at the Lynchburg facility.

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 women cannot.
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.

Women likely use over-the-counter antifungals inappropriately to treat gynecological conditions that are similar but potentially more severe.
