2A THE PALM BEACH POST SUNDAY, DECEMBER 7. 1997 Albright's Euro-hops set up new summit Newsmakers She cites progress with Arafat and nudges Israel to specify troop deployments when they next meet.

Sotheby's auction house in London said a rare manuscript of the 19th-century German composer sold for $734,000 on Friday. It's the highest price ever paid for a Brahms manuscript. The document contains two sonatas that Brahms wrote for a friend. Someone misses George Bush Former President Bush is having fun as Citizen Bush, impersonating Dana Carvey impersonating George Bush. Answering questions at the New Jersey Summit on Volunteer-ism in Atlantic City on Friday, Bush confessed misgivings about his treatment at the hands of the White House press corps. "I don't miss the national on the side of those who would make peace." Saturday, Albright went out of her way to say how well the Arafat meeting had gone. "You all know me well enough to know that when I say that we have had some very serious and fruitful discussions, that I am telling it like it is," she said. "Because if we weren't having them, I would also be telling you that" Arafat praised Albright and President Clinton "from the bottom of my heart" for their "great efforts" to revive the peace process. He declared that Palestinians had made a strategic choice to proceed with the peace process. Albright indicated progress in one area, so-called "confidence-building measures" that include accords on opening a Palestinian airport and seaport in Gaza, and assured safe passage between Gaza and the West Bank. Whatever happened in substance in the three meetings of the past two days and it seems to have been relatively little Albright raised the stakes by calling for decisions and promising to point the finger at whichever party fails to make the necessary decisions. Netvsday PARIS Hoping to inject urgency into the moribund Middle East peace process, U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright Saturday shuttled between Israeli and Palestinian leaders in different European cities, then called for another round of talks in 10 days. After meeting with Israelis Friday in Paris, Albright traveled to Geneva for what she later said were "very serious and fruitful" discussions with Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat. Then, in a surprise move, she returned to Paris to brief Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Before leaving Geneva she declared that Arafat and Netanyahu had "some decisions to make." She publicly challenged Netanyahu to come up with a plan for redeploying Israeli forces involving far more than the tiny portion of West Bank territory at which Israeli politicians have been hinting. "We would like to see a credible further redeployment," she told a news conference in Geneva. "We want to make sure that there is a combination of quality and quantity." Albright said the peace process could be revived when the leaders next meet "We will be able at that stage, I think, to move forward," she told reporters. Albright seemed confident that Palestinians would keep their part of the bargain by blocking terrorist incidents against Israeli civilians. "Chairman Arafat understands the importance of doing everything, having a 100 percent effort on his part on the security situation," she said. The relative smoothness of the meeting with Arafat contrasted with what appeared to be a difficult encounter in Friday's first-round meeting with Netanyahu. The Israeli prime minister said afterward he had not brought any maps nor had he discussed the specifics of Israel's potential withdrawal from Arab lands it has occupied on the West Bank since 1967. He told reporters the talks had helped "clear the air." Albright said pointedly: 'Time is not ; V 1 ellem, and Walt I razier, former New York Knick.

Wouldn't be prudent,' " Bush said, slipping into Carvey's nasal-voiced imitation. Bush said the comedian who lampooned him regularly on Saturday Night Live must be having trouble these days with no market for his presi Israel, labor union renew talks to end huge strike Bush The Associated Press JERUSALEM -Under threat of a widening walkout, the government and national labor union resumed talks Saturday aimed at ending a crippling strike by public workers. Most strikers stayed off the job for a fourth day Saturday, but the impact was much less noticeable because it was the Jewish Sabbath, when many services are curtailed anyway. More than 600,000 workers have been idled by the walkout, which was prompted in part by a Finance Ministry proposal to roll back a pension agreement signed by the previous Labor government. The misery eased somewhat at Israel's Ben Gurion International Airport, where would-be passengers have been sleeping on mattresses and scrounging food while they waited for flights out of the country. On Saturday, several dozen flights by foreign carriers were permitted to land and take off as airport work ers briefly went back to their jobs. Telephone, electric and water services have been interrupted by the strike. Trash has gone uncollected, creating huge garbage piles in the streets of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. Elementary school teachers joined in the walkout, and gasoline stations said they would start running out of gas in a day or two. The labor union said if the renewed talks did not bring a quick settlement, the walkout would grow today, extending to bus workers. dential impersonation. "They may not miss me in Washington, but I know that little guy misses me," he said. Rev. Graham up and walking The Rev. Billy Graham, hospitalized with pneumonia in his right lung, was switched from intravenous antibiotics to pills Saturday and he was taken off intravenous fluids, indicating that he is much improved. Graham, 79, is in good condition and is up and walking around. He flew to Jacksonville Wednesday night from a vacation in the Caribbean for treatment of a respiratory infection, which he developed about a week ago. He was admitted to St. Luke's Hospital. Graham has Parkinson's disease, a progressive neurological disorder, but it was not related to his current illness. While Graham delegates a lot of responsibilities to his son, he still heads the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. And despite his health troubles, Graham is still scheduled to preach at several evangelistic crusades next year. from reporter to novelist to producer I Edna Buchanan, a Pulitzer Prize-winning 3 Today's forecast raWv iV 5534 TODAY Mostly sunny and cool.
