Special Monitor correspondent Eric Bourne writes that the two men had not conferred since their joint talk with Solidarity leader Lech Walesa Nov. 4.

That he agreed to meet now could mean that Archbishop Glemp thought it essential to stress the view of the church that the crisis can never be settled without the free involvement of the Union.
