China has granted permission for two American warships to dock in Hong Kong, a U.S. official said. The decision came just days before the International Olympic Committee votes on which city will host the 2008 Summer Games. Beijing is among the top contenders. The move reverses a stance taken after a U.S. spy plane collided with a Chinese fighter jet in April. In May, Beijing refused to allow a U.S. ship carrying 1,400 personnel to make a port call. But China notified the U.S.

The soon-to-be-published memoirs of Soviet President Andrei A. Gromyko charge that Mao tried to enroll Soviet help for the plan, the New York Times said last week. The newspaper said Gromyko, Soviet foreign minister from 1957 to 1985, wrote that he traveled to Beijing in August, 1958, to reject the plan.

Earlier this century, American sailors starting shore leave in Shanghai received a helpful booklet containing "prices of rickshaws and two pages of prophylactic advice," recalls one U.S. official. The sailors and Marines aboard the 7th Fleet's dock-landing ship Ft. McHenry, which docked along Shanghai's historic Huangpu River on Wednesday, were advised to play it safe too. But the concerns these days are a bit different, as much political as practical.

China today expelled two U.S. Air Force officers charged with spying on military installations--a move that may derail U.S.-Chinese relations just when they seemed to be getting back on track.
