WASHINGTON (AP) — The

scuttled a $12 billion tax increase
and other parts of a Democratic def

Immediately after losing a 217-
203 vote, Speaker Jim Wright, D-
Texas, served notice that the House
will have to face the issue again —
but without an attached welfare-
overhaul provision. He acknowl
edged the welfare section, which has
nothing to do with reducing the def

sert on the vote.
But welfare was only part of the
problem, insisted R ep. nob Michel
of Illinois, the Republican leader.
“What the members have attempted
to express here is (to) give this bipar
tisan negotiating team (representing
Congress and the White House) a
chance to come up with a deficit
plan," Michel said.
By the vote. House members sim
ply refused to consider the Demo
cratic bill, since the procedures un
der which they were op
offered no realistic chance wi
the tax or welfare sections.
That forced the House
Committee, which the leaden;
controls, to reconvene and lap
new procedures under which tkl
would be considered.
Wright insisted the deficit:

WASHINGTON (AP) — The
Senate on Thursday approved a ban
on cigarette smoking on domestic
airline flights of 90 minutes or less, a
compromise that averted an attempt
to kill the language by tobacco-state
The restrictions, approved by
voice vote, would cover an estimated
70 percent of all U.S. flights, accord

The ban is part of an $ 1 1.1 billion
transportation appropriations bill
for this year that would also allow
states to raise speed limits to 65 mph
on about 7,000 miles of rural high
The overall legislation was ap
proved by a vote of 84-10. Before

Market draws 'second wii
making third-largest gain
NEW YORK (AP) — Wall Street
regained a measure of its lost vitality
Thursday, drawing a second wind
that blew the Dow Jones industrial
average up more than 90 points in
its third-largest gain ever.
The Dow average, which late in
the session was up more than 100
points, edged back to close up 91.5 1
points at 1,938.33. The 5-percent
gain — its third-largest one-day ad
vance — followed a 0.33-point gain
The broader market, which had
lagged behind the blue-chip issues
represented in the Dow, also im
proved with four stocks making
money for every one that lost.
The market moved steadily
higher despite a mixed showing by
the dollar and losses on stock ex
changes in the Far East.
The market value of <
stocks rose $106.57
trillion after. On Wednesday
fell $ 12 billion.
