bad case of the jitters Clinton and his senior advisers tried Wednesday to project calm caution after receiving a message from Pyongyang that North Korea wquld meet conditions for a freeze But there was no denying a sense of potential reconciliation with the hardline communist regime Former President Carter who went to the Korean peninsula to get the two sides to step back from a confrontation

lead to the spread of dangerous weapons to a raft of dictatorial regimes North Korean President Kim II Sung offered the freeze to Carter and the administration then asked Pyongyang in a message to con firm the promise and also to accept conditions for high level talks The response was pos itive We got everything we said an administration official before Clinton went on television to announce the results and to take reporters questions He said it was a very important step forward toward defusing the tense monthslong dispute with the communist regime In return Clinton said the Unit ed States

Haines an avid antique auto collector learned the vehicle existed and negotiated with another party who was involved with the car to purchase it The car was still in the circus barn 100 percent
