Jerry Ford
Offers to Meet
With Arafat

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Former President Gerald
Ford has offered to meet
Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization chief Yasir
Arafat as a "private citizen"
to further PLO participa-
tion in the Middle East pro-
cess.
He said Arafat would
have "to recognize that any
such meeting would mean
an admission on his part
that Israel would be recog-
nized by him and his
people." Ford made it clear
that he was speaking for
himself and that he would
not be representing the U.S.
government.
In a related development,
Yossi Sarid, a Labor MK
and one of the leading doves
in Israel's parliament, reit-
erated here that he was pre-
pared to meet with Arafat if
Arafat showed any signs
that he was willing to par-
ticipate in a dialogue.

promised to attend this
week a United Nations

sponsored by the Palestine

set up an international as-

McBride; and Britain's
former Ambassador to the

A UNESCO spokesman
said his organization was
not involved in the meeting

they seem to Lucy to levi-

The first Puttermesser
story is a biographic sketch
of a woman of 36, raised by
typically Jewish parents
and encouraged to excel
with "an egomaniac ag-
grandizement." She is a top
student, makes the Law Re-
view at Yale, and is engaged
by an elite law firm. Kept in
the background by a refined
anti-Semitism, she resigns
and joins the legal depart-
ment of a city commis-
sioner. The banality and
crudity of her surroundings
disgusts her, and she de-
votes her free time to the
study of Hebrew and to as-
sist Russian Jewish re-
ed
fugees.
