Rivers may give up pay if government shuts down tonight
WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. Rep.
Lynn Rivers said Friday that Congress
is not doing its job in the face of a
threatened government shutdown.
"It is scandalous that we have not
been able to come to some sort ofagree-
nent here, and I think people at home
are really disgusted," said a frustrated
Rivers (D-Ann Arbor).
Rivers said that ifcongressional lead-
ers and President Clinton cannot get
past their budget impasse, she would
give back her government pay until

tion tussle over the
October. The measure now returns to
the Senate because of a minor differ-
ence with a version adopted by that
chamber Thursday night.
The Senate is expected to approve
the House spending bill and forward it
to Clinton tonight,just hours before the
midnight expiration of a previous stop-
gap spending measure. The timing
would leave the President little choice
but to sign it or furlough 800,000 of 2
million federal workers tomorrow
Republicans are adamant about want-
ing a balanced budget in seven years.
Clinton has said the budget he is getting
from Congress is too severe on Medi-
care, the environment, education and
"I'm not in a position to move either
side in this debate," said Rivers, who is
serving her first term in the House.
"But I understand my obligations,
and I don't feel comfortable taking
money when Congress as a whole is not
meeting its responsibilities."

Atlantis heads toward Russian station
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -Atlantis and its crew dashed
after the Russian space station Mir yesterday, drawing closer
and closer for a tricky - and risky - docking.
When Atlantis catches up to Mir on Wednesday, it will be
the first time a shuttle is used in station assembly, providing
NASA with much-needed experience forbuilding an interna-
tional space station.
Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield's children, ages 9, 10
and 12, were excited for their dad, making his first space trip.
They had their own big plans, though. They were going to
Disney World. Hadfleld
Atlantis and the five astronauts began their voyage at 7:30
a.m., punching through low clouds on their way to orbit.
Until the last few minutes of the countdown, it seemed as though the clouds over
the launch pad and bad weather at the shuttle emergency landing strips overseas
would delay liftoff for the second day in a row. But NASA decided the clouds posed
no obstruction, and the sky cleared just in time at two touchdown sites in Spain.

White House had
WASHINGTON - Early in the
Whitewater affair, a White House lawyer
obtained confidential documents from a
key facet of the investigation, hastily re-
turningthem aftertheJustice Department
launched a probe to determine how presi-
dential aides used the material.
For five or six days in mid-Novem-
ber 1993, then-Associate White House
Counsel Neil Eggleston had a report
that detailed a series of defaulted feder-
ally backed loans by David Hale, a
Little Rock judge who was emerging as
a central figure in Whitewater.
The report by the Small Business
Administration triggered a criminal in-
vestigation of Hale, who was indicted
just two months before the White House
obtainedthe information from the SBA,
according to documents reviewed by
The Associated Press.
At the time, Hale was alleging pub-
licly that he had been pressured in 1986
by Clinton, then the Arkansas gover-
nor, to make an improper SBA-guaran-
teed loan of $300,000 to the Clintons'
The loan, which was never repaid, is
at the heart of Whitewater prosecutor
Kenneth Starr's criminal investigation.
Hale has since pleaded guilty to federal
charges, and is Starr's most important
Doctors would bar
care for some babies
WASHINGTON - Hundreds-of
doctors say they would recommend
withholding expensive medical care
from babies born to HIV-infected moth-
ers even when they didn't know if the
baby actually had the AIDS virus.
Most babies born to HIV-infected
mothers do not develop the virus.
The findings, reported in yesterday's
American Journal of Public Health, are
"shocking," said Arthur Ammann of
the Pediatric AIDS Foundation.
New York researchers studied 951
neonatologists nationwide to determine
how they would treat newborns who
had such expensive-to-treat conditions
as kidney or heart disease in addition to
being born to HIV-infected mothers.
