ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - The Rev. Billy Graham is in a North Carolina hospital, awaiting word from doctors on whether he has pneumonia.

Graham, who is 93, was admitted to Mission Hospitals in Asheville late Wednesday morning suffering from congestion, a cough and a slight fever.

Spokesman A. Larry Ross says Graham was in good spirits Wednesday night after a full afternoon of medical tests. Ross said Graham's daughter, Gigi, visited her father. While watching television in the hospital room, they found a channel showing Graham's 1973 crusade in St. Louis.

Dr. Lucian Rice, who is Graham's personal physician, said he was in stable condition.
