Carter feels Begin
can negotiate peace

(Continued from Page 1)
United States administration has evern
insinuated that Prime Minister Begin is
not qualified to be prime minister or
that he should be replaced," Carter
"I think Prime Minister Begin and,
his government are able to negotiate in
an adequately flexible way to reach an
agreement with Egypt and later Jordan
and other countries," he said. "We
have not given up on the possibility of a
negotiated settlement."
IN BRASILIA, Carter told members
of Brazil's national congress their

nation and the United States can "dis-
agree, even vigorously on occasion,
without bitterness or distrust." Carter
and Ernesto Geisel, the president of
Brazil, differ on the importance the
American President attaches to human
rights and to curbing the spread of
atomic weapons.
Before leaving Brasilia, Carter also
met with officials of the Brazilian
supreme court. He plugged for human
rights, but balanced his call for justice
for the oppressed with an endorsement
of efforts to provide social stability.

In her speech, St. James argued that
prostitute rights is essentially a
feminist issue, and part of the ex-
ploitation that "keeps women working
for cheap." She said present laws
against prostitution encourage this ex-
ploitation because they encourage
prostitutes to seek protection from
male pimps - at high financial,


physical and mental cost.
ST. JAMES ALSO criticized methods
of curbing prostitution as leading to
harrassment and physical abuse of
prostitutes. Enforcement schemes such
as indiscriminate mass busts subtly
promote a treatment of women as "cat-
tie," she said.
Decriminalization of prostitution,
said St. James, is the only means by
which prostitutes' rights can be en-
sured. However, she pointed out, "This
is not a local or even a national
problem, but a universal one that exists
in Stockholm, Paris, Sydney . . edt."
Consequently, she revealed;
COYOTE is working with similar
European groups to organize a world
meeting that would put pressure on the
U.S. to decriminalize the world's oldest
profession. St. James said prostitute
rights is totally consistent with
President Carter's campaign for
human rights. Thus, she is seeking sup-
port from the American Civil Liberties
Union and Amnesty International and
threatens to take the issue to the United
Nations for resolution.

WEIZMAN FLEW to Cairo yester-
day. He was met by Egyptian War
Minister Mohammed Abdel Ghani
Gamassy and they went by helicopter
to Sadat's villa. Sadat, Weizman,
Gamassy, Egyptian Vice President
Hosny Mubarak and an Israeli aide at-
tended the meeting.
Weizman's meeting with Sadat was
the first direct contact between Egypt
and Israel since the defense minister's
last visit here Feb. 1. He was Israeli's
chief delegate in negotiations on Israeli
withdrawal from the Sinai Desert.
Weizman was preceded by a letter
from Begin to Sadat two days ago uring
him to come up with new responses to
Israeli peace proposals and calling on
him to reactivate the joint committees
created in December.
