At least one Washington hotel manager likes the extra business flowing from the U.S.-Soviet summit so much that he is offering his guests "peace cookies," but for some city cab drivers, the summit is not such good news.

President Clinton was hustled out of a hotel ballroom Friday after a fire alarm sounded as he delivered a speech. The alarm went off just after Clinton began his speech at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel for the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Awards, awarded for corporate innovation. A fire had broken out in the hotel's laundry room. Apparently unaware of the fire, Clinton tried to continue his remarks after joking about the noise.
