LEEDS CASTLE, England (AP) - A
two-day Egyptian and Israeli foreign
ministers' meeting ended. yesterday
without any apparent progress toward
peace in the Middle East, but with a
pledge from Secretary of State Cyrus
Vance to follow through with more
"I believe Egypt and Israel remain
fully committed to establishing a
genuine peace and we will continue to
help them in that efford," Vance said in
a statement issued at the 13th-century
moated castle where the meeting was
VANCE SAID he would begin his
diplomatic visits to Cairo and
Jerusalem in two weeks. No other
details of his travel plans were announ-
ced but he also is likely to visit Jordan
and Saudi Arabia, which the Carter-
administration is depending on for sup-
port of the U.S. mediation effort.
Vance said he could not guarantee his
trip would produce another foreign
ministers' meeting, let alone a
breakthrough toward settlement.
Vance mediated the talks here, which
focused on the future of the Israeli-
occupied West Bank of the Jordan
River and the Gaza Strip.
AS THE TALKS were ending here,
President Anwar Sadat of Egypt
declared in Khartoum, Sudan, that
Israel was "still dreaming of expan-
sion" and said it could be "the cause of
grave damage" to the Mideast. Sadat

meeting of the Organization of African
Israeli sources referred to the Leeds
parley, held in a sitting room once
favored by King Henry VIII, as "a
seminar" rather than' a negotiating
session. One delegate, however, said it
was the first time he had thoroughly
understood Egypt's position and felt
Egypt understood Israel.

A BUDDING PICASSO? It's probably too early to tell, but this tot appears to be on her way as she polishes her painting
skills at a special children's booth atthe Art Fair yesterday.
Of mmesmasks and Amassagess
By MITCH CANTOR
and ELISA ISAACSON
Along with the hundreds of traditional exhibits, this year's
Art Fair is not without its share of oddities and amusements.
For instance, anyone willing to submerge his or her face in
wet plaster for two minutes may walk away with a per-
sonalized mask. Plaster caster LarryOughton, whose booth
is located near the intersection of South Forest and South
University Streets, said face molds sell well because "people
like themselves - it shows they have a positive aspect about
THE 32-YEAR-OLD art teacher added that creating your
own face gives you a chance to "get to know yourself, to be
creative with yourself."
University graduate Kerry Sandford is the perpetrator of
another unique scheme. Heis offering rides on his "tricycle
cab" for 50 cents a customer. The canopied vehicle, which
Sandford built in three weeks, can carry two passengers as
Sandford peddles. Sandford runs back and forth from the in-
tersection of State Street and Liberty down toMain Street.
The coolie-clad biker, a rookie at his trade, will donate half
of his earnings to the Ann Arbor Alliance to Stop Nuclear
Power, of which he is a member.
FOR THOSE unable to afford the 50-cent rickshaw fare,
Wladyslaw Narowski is offering free foot massages on the
lawn along East University.
Narowski said he got the idea for his innovative endeavor
three years ago, while meandering through his fifth or sixth
Art Fair. "I noticed myself overloaded and overwhelmed by
so many pots and paintings - you get so you can't see
anything anymore," he explained. "I though, 'What would I
want more than anything else? - a foot rub' - and I thought
other people would, too.
"It was pretty scary at first, because it's never been done
before, but people have come back," Narowski said of the in-
