The return of Vladimir Horowitz to the Soviet Union last week after an absence of more than 60 years, and his brilliant performance in Moscow Sunday, were momentous events in several respects. Bravos were earned on every count. Regarding the concert itself, it was of course an artistic triumph. That was to be expected of perhaps the greatest pianist of this century. It also demonstrated the intrinsic value of U.S.-Soviet cultural exchange programs that were given new life by President Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev at their summit meeting in Geneva last November.

A scheduling conflict prevented Gov. Casey from attending the opening yesterday of a "summer summit" on the Chesapeake Bay, hosted by Virginia Gov. Gerald L. Baliles. In his place was Pennsylvania Environmental Resources Secretary Arthur S. Davis, who joined Maryland Gov. Donald Schaefer, Washington Mayor Marion Barry and federal environmental officials for the two- day meeting. It's unfortunate Gov. Casey couldn't attend because he would have been able to personally deliver some encouraging news.

"There was no connection between these two releases," said President Reagan about the swap of Nicholas Daniloff for Gennadi Zakharov. He added, regarding the Iceland summit, "This is not a summit. " Everyone was amused by these two obvious lies. Only conservatives were fuming that Reagan should agree to meet with a man who had challenged his "personal assurance" that Daniloff was not a spy. William Safire called this "the most far-reaching, calculated personal insult ever delivered to an American president by a Soviet leader . . . Mr. Gorbachev in effect called him a liar.

The most surprising outcome of the resolution of the Nicholas Daniloff affair is the scheduling of a meeting of President Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in Iceland on Oct. 11-12. Labeled as "preparations" for a full-scale summit conference in the United States, this tete-a-tete offers a lot of political benefits, and relatively fewer risks, for both men. But whether it holds the key to an arms accord that contributes to a safer world is a much tougher question. The Iceland meeting will get both leaders off some political hooks.

Still dressed in tights and ballet shoes, Soviet ballet star Aleksander Lunev dozed peacefully yesterday morning on a brick ledge outside the Glassboro State College auditorium, soaking up some rays just a few feet from where East-West history was made two decades ago. The stocky, blond dancer from the Kirov Ballet, oblivious to the international implications, had fled the rigor of rehearsal and the hubbub of the artistic summit taking place inside....

As Mikhail S. Gorbachev arrived in Washington yesterday for his meeting with President Reagan, working people here expressed optimism about the summit and hopes for better relations between the superpowers. The Soviets interviewed on the subfreezing streets of the capital were well-informed - reflecting the exhaustive media coverage the summit has received here - and apparently earnest. But most of them stayed carefully close to the party line, praising disarmament but rejecting Western interference in issues such as emigration and Afghanistan.

Two sets of parents were very concerned about their two young sons who had accidentally locked themselves in a garage. The boys were fascinated with matches and had taken a box of them into the garage. The garage happened to have a quantity of highly inflammable items - cans of gasoline, kerosene, paints, etc. The garage had a small broken window through which the parents could communicate with their boys. Which of the following procedures would people advise the parents to follow?

Ten years ago, as I stood atop Mount Shasta in Northern California, ice ax in hand, you could say I was a bit out of my element. I mean, yo, I grew up in Philly. I was a city kid. Adventure to me meant being robbed at knifepoint or, better yet, driving on Lombard Street in Center City. So why the mountain? Some friends asked me to go, and my smoggy new home (Los Angeles) was driving me nuts. Why not? So there I was, after a strenuous day of climbing, a few feet from the summit.

A Soviet citizen held up the current issue of the weekly newspaper Nedelya and pointed to the cover photograph of Mikhail S. Gorbachev, broadly smiling, in Washington. "Probably, he didn't know what happened in the streets here this week," said the Soviet. He was not himself a dissident or potential emigre, but he was well aware of the violent squelching of demonstrations in Moscow during the "Mikhail and Ron" summit. But Gorbachev did know what happened in Moscow. During his hypnotic news conference Thursday evening in Washington, he was even asked about it - specifically, about what happened last Sunday.

Camden County Police Chief Scott Thomson boasted of his department's achievements in curtailing crime and repairing its relationship with the community at a Harvard University summit hours after a standout high school football player was gunned down and became Camden's eighth and youngest homicide victim this year. "This is a watershed moment for law enforcement organizations," Thomson told a Cambridge, Mass., audience just after 4:30 p.m. Saturday. He was alluding to the deaths of unarmed black men at the hands of police in Ferguson, Mo.; South Carolina, and elsewhere.

With an eye toward keeping African American interests at the forefront of the current mayoral campaign, a group of black civic leaders Wednesday outlined plans for a two-day "black political summit" April 11 and 12. The meeting, to be at Dobbins High School, will allow the group to draft an issues agenda for all mayoral and City Council candidates in the May 19 primary election. The candidates will be asked to sign off on positions presented. "We are sick and tired of politicians who come to our community and ask for our vote and disappear," said the Rev. William B. Moore, pastor of Tenth Memorial Baptist Church in North Philadelphia.

DES MOINES, Iowa - For months, the 2016 Republican presidential race has been dominated by the "invisible primary" scramble for the backing of the party's donor class. On Saturday, it goes grassroots. At least eight likely candidates will give their pitches to 1,500 conservative activists at the Iowa Freedom Summit in Des Moines, trying to seduce the people who pack a punch in the GOP caucuses, where the first votes of the party's nominating process are scheduled to be cast in a little over a year.

DES MOINES, Iowa - New Jersey Gov. Christie told an audience of more than 1,000 Iowa conservative activists at a conference here Saturday that he shares the same political values, deriding the "conventional wisdom" that says he's too moderate for the state that will cast the first votes in the 2016 Republican presidential race in a little more than a year. "Let me ask you this, if I was too blunt, too direct, too loud, and too New Jersey for Iowa, then why do you people keep inviting me back?"

Forbes has chosen Philadelphia as the permanent home of its 30 Under 30 Summit - a gathering of young entrepreneurs that organizers hope will become the nation's most elite networking event for the next generation of business and political leaders. The announcement Monday was timed to coincide with the release of the magazine's annual "Forbes 30 Under 30" list, a who's who tally of 600 entrepreneurs and leaders under age 30 that seeks to be as buzzy as its annual billionaires' list.

Unless Philadelphia builds a robust connection to Pennsylvania's gas fields, the region is at risk of being bypassed by the Marcellus Shale energy revolution, a gathering of business and public officials heard Friday. "Creating an energy hub for greater Philadelphia is really a very important opportunity to be seized," energy historian Daniel Yergin told the one-day conference, "Greater Philadelphia: The Next Energy Hub. " The summit at Drexel University, sponsored by the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce, was billed as a coming-out party for a campaign to attract energy-intensive businesses to fuel an industrial revival in the region.

ATLANTIC CITY - The full report from Gov. Christie's summit on the fate of Atlantic City calls for an emergency manager with "extraordinary supervisory powers" and deep cuts to the Police and Fire Departments. The report, posted Thursday on the NJCRDA.com website, offers more detail on plans outlined - but not endorsed - by Gov. Christie on Wednesday in Atlantic City. It includes a proposal to "rightsize" the Police and Fire Departments, reducing the Police Department from 330 uniformed employees to 285, and the Fire Department from 261 to 180. It also calls for tax, school, and pension reform and possible regionalization of the Police Department.

Malala Yousafzai held a ballroom full of people rapt Tuesday as she spoke about her remarkable life. But do not think for a moment that the 17-year-old Nobel Peace Prize winner can catch a break at her high school. True, the Pakistani teenager accepted the Liberty Medal and was a headliner at the Forbes Under 30 Summit, both in Philadelphia on Tuesday. And she would then jet up to Canada to meet with Prime Minister Stephen Harper on Wednesday and receive honorary citizenship - an honor bestowed only on a handful of global humanitarians, including Nelson Mandela.

ATLANTIC CITY - With Trump Taj Mahal now reportedly on the ropes after the closing of two major gambling halls last week, Gov. Christie will hold his much-anticipated summit here Monday. As the battered resort's future hangs in the balance and faces massive unemployment from four casino closures this year - and what will soon be four dark buildings along the Boardwalk - the summit seeks to address this critical question: Where does Atlantic City go from here? "There's no doubt things are tough," Atlantic City Mayor Don Guardian said late last week, "but I believe the decisions we are making today and will be making over the next few years will yield positive results in Atlantic City for years to come.
