CAPE CANAVERAL,Fla. -Two
100-ton spaceships - the biggest ever A
to converge in space-flew in forma-
tion just 37 feet apart yesterday in the
first U.S.-Russian rendezvous in 20
It almost didn't happen. Russian
space officials gave in at the last minute,
allowing Discovery and its crew of six
to creep close despite fears that a leak-
ing jet would damage equipment on
Mir. Mir and Discovery
"We are bringing our spaceships closer together. We are bringing our nations
closer together," Discovery's commander, James Wetherbee, said at the moment
of closest approach in the mission, a dress rehearsal for the first shuttle-Mir
docking in June. The moment, he said, was "almost like a fairy tale ... almost too
good to be true."

House approves line-
item veto, 294-134
WASHINGTON - The House
last night approved Republican legis-
lation that greatly expands a
President's powers to cut congres-
The overwhelming vote of 294 to
134 allows a President to challenge
specific projects without vetoing an
entire spending bill.
President Clinton campaigned for
such authority in 1992 but abandoned
his effort early in his administration
in the face of opposition from his own
party. Republicans made it part of
their "Contract With America" dur-
ing last fall's congressional campaign.
The House timed its approval of
the line-item veto to coincide with the
84th birthday of President Reagan,
who supported similar powers when
he was in the White House. The Re-
publican-controlled Congress has
promised to give a Democrat what a
would not give Reagan.
