Clinton To Delay News Conference

December 13, 1997

WASHINGTON (AP) _ President Clinton gave White House reporters an early Christmas gift: He moved his news conference from Monday to Tuesday so not to conflict with the annual holiday party for the media.

Announcing the switch, press spokesman Mike McCurry said Clinton preferred Tuesday, anyway, because it gave him an extra day to read briefing books. It will be held at 2 p.m. EST at the State Department; the White House East Room is filled with Christmas decorations.
