WASHINGTON - Job Descrip-
tion: White House Egg Lady.
Official Duties: Wandering the
White House carrying a basket of
wooden eggs and a pen to thrust at
celebrities like Johnny Carson and
Janet Reno for autographs.
Favorite Accessories: A pastel
Swatch watch dripping with tiny eggs
and a silver bunny pin that was a
Christmas gift from Bill and Hillary
Robyn Dickey, a.k.a. the Egg
Lady, is director of special tours at the
White House Visitors Office. Her
duties include masterminding the tra-
ditional White House Easter Egg Roll
and Hunt to be held Monday.
She keeps tabs daily on who comes
through the executive mansion in case
she wants to add an autograph to the
stash of celebrity eggs that will be
hidden on the South Lawn.
Only bona-fide celebrities, say
Oksana Baiul or Tom Selleck, are
stalked by the brown-haired woman
with the lilting Arkansas accent.
She finds them all, be they astro-
nauts or Dallas Cowboys, the Grate-
ful Dead or Warren Christopher, as
they tour the Blue Room or wait to
meet with the president. She has even
been known to leave a basket of eggs
with a note in the Lincoln Bedroom
asking famous overnight visitors to
autograph them. (Barbra Streisand
"I tell the people that this tradition
is over 100 years old," said Dickey,
who planned the Clinton campaign's
Little Rock election-night events and
earlier served as administrator of t
Arkansas Governor's Mansion. "
one has ever turned me down."
Last year's egg hunt crowd of
40,000 inspired Dickey to go all out
this year. She has amassed 2,000 of
the coveted celebrity eggs, signed by
the likes of Ron Howard and Harrison
Ford. Bill and Hillary Clinton and Al
and Tipper Gore each have signed 10

likeness of the White House and the
Dickey also oversees the dyeing
of 7,200 real eggs by the White House
chef for an egg roll on the lawn. And
she organized an East Wing exhibit of
51 eggs decorated by artists from ea*
state and the District of Columbia.
The exhibit will be part of White
House public tours through April 11.
Don't expect to find a Peace Treaty
Egg. Dickey says she doesn't ap-
proach world leaders as a rule. "That
would be inappropriate. They don't
know the tradition."
Dickey says she received calls
from frenzied parents last year askin
her to identify illegible signatures 9
their kids' finds.
Fortunately, celebrity eggs are
numbered and there is a master list.

"We are going to be urging a reso-
lution there. One thing I would stress
is that we're consulting very closely
with all the parties, including the
Chinese, about the best way to en-
courage the North Koreans to take the
steps that the international commu-
nity wants them to take."
Han lined up his government with
the United States in trying to pry open
suspect North Korean nuclear sites.
He said there were "some differences
in emphasis" with China.
Reporting to Christopher on talks
in Japan and China, he said, "the
Chinese have been emphasizing the
importance of dialogue." The goal,
he said, should be adoption of an
"effective and realistic" resolution by
the Security Council.
President Clinton was briefed by
his national security assistant, An-
thony Lake, en route to a golf club
outside San Diego.

Lake said that could lead to "broad
talks" with North Korea about its fu-
ture and the nuclear issue. "Korea is a
very serious issue but it is very impo*

Korean rhetoric," he said.
In fact, he said, North Korean state-

tion is now more clearly stated in our
law than ever," Prosecutor John
O'Hair said yesterday.
Michigan briefly tested an 18-
year-old drinking age in the 1970s.
The age to buy or drink alcohol has
been 21 since 1978.
Despite that, drinking remains
widespread among teenagers and
young adults. And drinking-related
accidents remain common.
Of the 625 people who died in
alcohol-related crashes in Michigan
in 1991, state police say 79 were be-
tween the ages of 15 and 19.
As part of a broad crackdown on
underage drinking, the state Legisla-
ture stiffened the penalties for youn
drinkers and those who help them.
O'Hair said his office and Wayne
County police agencies plan to make
sure the laws are strictly enforced this
Adults who aid underage drinking
also may face prosecution under
Michigan's existing laws on contrib-
uting to the delinquency of minors.
"The goals of our legislators is a
noble one: to stop the perennial spring
time story of bright and hopeful young
graduates who die in car crashes,"
O'Hair said. "I fully expect local po-
lice agencies in Wayne county to be
very vigilant this prom and gradua-
