ouse holds off attempts to
ill funding for space station
WASHINGTON (AP) — Space
Station Freedom has dodged another
bullet, with the House voting by a
wide margin to reject an attempt to
kill the project.
Wednesday’s 254-159 vote was
reminiscent of a similar attempt last
year to slash funding for the project,
largely underway at the Johnson
Space Center near Houston.
Reps. Tim Roemer, D-Ind., and
Richard Zimmer, R-N.J., had teamed
up to offer an amendment deleting
$2.2 billion in funding for fiscal
1993. Zimmer also unsuccessfully
tried last year to slash funding for the
project, which will cost up to $40 bil-
lion to build.
Opponents contend the orbiting
laboratory is draining money needed
to help cover increased costs for vet-
erans' medical benefits, environmen-
tal programs and housing. They also
say the space station is siphoning
funds from other NASA programs
and has limited scientific benefit.
Eliminating the program would
have a chilling effect on international
cooperation, space station advocates
say. Japan, Canada and the European
Space Agency are among thdse who
have committed billions on joint
development. Loss of the space sta-
tion also would be a setback for
American saence and technology
programs and would hamper future
space exploration, they contend.
“It may not be the space spectacu-
lar we’ve been advertising over sev-
eral years, but in this tough time, we
think it is affordable,” said Rep.

10% of budget controlled by lawsuits
AUSTIN (AP) — State legislators
who feel like judges have control
over their budget-writing are right.
The state comptroller’s office, in a
new report, says nearly 10 percent of
the state budget is spent compMr*
with court orders.
“For two decades, Texas
embroiled in litigation over
the most basic services provided by
state government,” said the report
“It’s no surprise that lawmakers
feel outside forces are moving the
budget-signing pen. ”
The comptroller’s office, in its lat-
est Fiscal Notes publication, studied
the budgetary effect of lawsuits filed
over prisons, treatment of the mental-
ly ill and the mentally retarded, public
schools and higher education.
“A generation of lawyers, judges
and litigants have been involved in
shaping these major segments of state
government,” Comptroller John

Sex object label OK for Sharon Stone
NEW YORK (AP) — Sharon Stone, who plays a
bisexual sefeil killer in “Basic Instinct,” says she
doesn’t mindaeing a sex object.
The 34-year-old actress said in the May^issue of
Vogue that as a child, her brains got all the attention
after she scored a genius-level 154 on an IQ test.
“I just find the whole sex-object thing funny, because
I’d been so objectified in another way when I was a
kid," Stone said.
“I understand that none of it means anything, only
that if you’re unusual, you create an impact that people
are uncomfortable with, so they don't know what to do
Stone worked as a model, posed nude for Playboy
and acted in a string of third-rate movies — with the
exception of “Total Recall,” opposite Arnold
Schwarzenegger — before hitting it big with “Basic
Poonesbuiy goes into summer renins
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — “Doonesbury” fans
won’t have to go cold turkey, even though artist Garry
Trudeau is taking the summer off.
The strip’s distributor, Universal Press Syndicate of
Kansas City, said Wednesday it will supply its 1,400
subscribers with reruns while Trudeau is away June 1
through Sept. 5.
Lee Salem, editorial director at Universal, didn’t say
what the cartoonist’s plans are, just that he “wants some
time away from the drawing board.”
Trudeau took a leave of absence in 1983 and 1984 to
update his characters and work on other projects.
“Doonesbury” began in 1970.
Topic of play not due any money_
NEW YORK (AP) — A judge ruled “Six Degrees of
Separation” playwright John Guare owes no money to
the scam artist who inspired the hit Broadway show. ,
In dismissing David Hampton’s $100 million lawsuit
Wednesday, state Supreme Court Justice Edward Lehner
said Hampton isn’t entitled to compensatory or punitive
damages just because the play was based on incidents
from his life.
In the play, a young black man pretending to be actor
Sidney Poitier’s son gets liberal white socialites to invite
him into their home and give him money.
Hampton served 21 months in prison for the 1983
His lawyer said he will appeal.

Reagans deny daughter’s allegations
NEW YORK (AP) — Nancy and Ronald Reagan
denied daughter Patti Davis’ allegations that Mrs. Rea-
gan was a pill-popping child beater.
In an interview to be broadcast tonight on ABC’s
“PrimeTime Live,” the 39-year-old Davis said her
mother took up to six tranquilizers a day and beat her —
sometimes daily — while she was growing up.
And she said her father, then California governor,
didn’t believe her when she told him.
The “charges of physical mistreatment and substance
abuse ... are absolutely false,” the Reagans said in a
statement Wednesday from Los Angeles.
Excerpts of the interview were published in Wednes-
day’s Daily News.
Davis, who has not spoken with her parents in several
years, is promoting her autobiography, “The Way I See
