We report on measurements of e(+)e(-) annihilation into hadrons and lepton
pairs. The data have been collected with the L3 detector at LEP at centre-o
f-mass energies between 130 and 189 GeV. Using a total integrated luminosit
y of 243.7 pb(-1) 25863 hadronic and 8573 lepton-pair events are selected f
or the measurement of cross sections and leptonic forward-backward asymmetr
ies. The results are in good agreement with Standard Model predictions. (C)
