Carter calls for Mideast summit

WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Carter, apparently fearful of a collapse
in Mideast peace talks, invited Egyp-
tian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli
Prime Minister Menachem Begin to
Camp David for a face-to-face summit,
the White House announced yesterday.
Both Sadat and Begin accepted Car-
ter's invitation to attend the meeting at
the presidential retreat starting Sept. 5,
said press secretary Jody Powell. Last
February, Carter had escorted Sadat to
the secluded mountaintop retreat in
western Maryland, where the two held
private talks.
POWELL SAID Secretary of State
Cyrus Vance sent word from the Middle
East that both leaders "have welcomed

this meeting. The president is gratified
by their response." Powell added that
no specific time has been set for the
duration of the meeting.
Vance said later that the meeting will
be held with "no conditions" imposed
by either side. "The objective is to try
and establish a framework for a peace
settlement in the Middle East," he told
reporters before holding a news con-
ference with Sadat in Alexandria,
A White House official, decling to be
identified publicy, said Carter
arranged the session "not because the
chances of peace are right now so high,
but because the stakes in peace are
very high. Not because the prospects

for peace are so good, but because the
risks have in fact risen."
CONGRESSIONAL leaders, briefed
on the Camp David meeting, expressed
support for the administration's move
and voiced hope that it would give new
impetus to the stalled peace talks.
Sen. Dick Stone (D-Fla.) said he un-
derstood that Carter extended the in-
vitation in a handwritten letter
delivered to Sadat and Begin by Vance.
Quoting a White House source, Stone
said Begin accepted "warmly and on
the spot." He said he did not know the
circumstances of Sadat's acceptance.
Later, Begin expressed hope that his
forthcoming meeting at Camp David
would have positive results. "I am glad

President Sadat, agreed to hold the
meeting," he said ina statement issued
in Tel Aviv.
Hopes for progress toward a Middle
East peace settlement were riding high
when Sadat made his dramatic visit to
Jerusalem last November and then
hosted a meeting with Begin in
Ismailia, Egypt on Dec. 15. Since then,
however, relations between the two
leaders have cooled considerably, and
peace talks have bogged down.
Carter, Sadat and Begin will meet for
an indefinite period starting the day af-
ter Labor Day at the heavily guarded
presidential retreat 60 miles north of

"The results are so slow coming in. I
just can't believe it," Colburn said.

"Oh, hell, you can't tell how anything
is going," Trowbridge said. "They (the
results) are really coming in hot and
heavy," he added sarcastically.
THROUGHOUT the campaign, two
issues - tax reform and unemployment
- shared the spotlight.
The candidates campaign styles
varied greatly, from that of Democrat
Harold Moon, who accepted no cam-
paign contributions, to that of Pierce,
who ran a very quiet campaign, relying
on his name recognition and popularity.
The 18th District has been
monopolized by Bursley for 14 years.
The 65-year-old Republican, who an-
nounced his retirement late last
February, sponsored over 50 bills which
were later passed into law.

reporters Mitch Cantor and Eliza-
beth Slowik with files from Michael
Arkush and R.J. Smith.

The story of three desperate days in the life of a C.I.A. book-reader turned
desperado. CONDOR is on excellent companion piece for such films as NIGHT
MOVES and CHINATOWN, sharing with them its depiction of a virtuous loner
drawn into a guise of danger and confusion and finding the worst kind of
human corruption at the end of his investigation. Redford's searchingness
is mirrored with subtlety and depth by the exact performance of the film's
two virtusos, John Houseman and Max Von Sydow. With Faye Dunaway,

An incredibly underrated film! An adult detective mystery about a private
eye who can't separate his search for a missing girl from his painful hunt
for clues to his own identity. Penn faces the story's violence head on without
wallowing in it and Hackman turns in the performance of his career, miles
