Early today, astronauts Winston Scott and Takao Doi were to embark on a five-hour spacewalk during which they planned to assemble and operate a 17.5-foot equipment crane destined for the U.S.-led international space station. At the end of the excursion, Scott was to join with chnttle nilnt Sfpve I jndsev in the test of Sorint a celebrations. The Austrian -.

PETERSBURG Nurse Kim DeCesare tends to 'Baby Nicholas', who was found in a trash bin Monday at Northeast High School. A school surveillance camera led police to a lOth-grader, who Tuesday admitted to having given birth to the boy in a school restroom. The baby, who was ice cold and barely breathing when found, was stable Tuesday. remote-control, free-flying robot equipped with cameras. The $3 million device is a prototype for a machine that could conduct maintenance inspections of the orbital laboratory in lieu of spacewalking astronauts. ? The spacewalk was to be the second for Scott and Doi on the lengthy Columbia flight, which is scheduled to end early Friday. 4 . Their work with the crane is viewed as especially critical by space station program officials. During their spacewalk a week ago, Scott and Doi found the span of the crane more flexible than they anticipak ed, creating difficulty as the spacewalkers tried to fasten a 5()5pound test load. ' X "What we will do is expand our experience base from the first time," said Scott, who has been primed on several different ways to fasten and move S lighter test load. H. . NASA said it plans the installation of a similar but less flexible crane on the space station soon after orbital assembly begins in mid-1998. During a news conference Tuesday, shuttle commander Kevin Kregel praised his crew and the dozens of ground-based researchers and flight controllers for what he characterized as a "highly successful" mission. Though disappointed by the difficulties that kept the shuttle's Spartan solar observatory from conducting studies of the sun, Kregel noted the $10 million spacecraft had been successfully retrieved by Scott and Doi on their first spacewalk. The satellite can be reflown on another mission, he noted.1 Gorbachev goes capitalist with Pizza Hut ad The New York Times MOSCOW The last leader of the Soviet Union was unable to prevent the collapse of communism. So now he has conspicuously taken his place on the winning side. Mikhail Gorbachev, 66, has shot a commercial endorsement for Pizza Hut. Gorbachev agreed to sit down at a table with his granddaughter in the Moscow outlet of Pizza Hut and pay tribute to capitalism and its greasiest offshoot: American fast food. Gorbachev said he was not exactly sure how much he was being paid, but some reports indicate his fee is close to $1 million. Explaining that he badly needed the money to finance his foundation, a research institute that bears his name, Gorbachev said in an interview Tuesday that he had declined many other offers to endorse products but made an exception for Pizza Hut. "I thought that it is a people's matter food," he said. "This is why if my name works for the benefit of consumers, to hell with it I can risk it." ' ' ' Children: Strom Jr., 25; Julie, " and Paul, 21. Thurmond will spend his actual birthday in Columbia, S.C., and will present law ' ,' enforcement awards and plant a tree at the ' sHatehouse.

The fund was estab- -lfied to accept donations in memory of the . princess. The money, now more than $50.4 mil-; - jion, is to be used for charities the princess sup--. parted.
