Sews briefs
by The Associated Press
WHITE HOUSE AIDE Peter Flanigan agreed yesterday to
testify on specific matters before the Senate Judiciary Committee
in its investigation of acting Atty. Gen. Richard Kleindienst.
In a letter to the committee, Flanigan said he would disclose
to -the committee his knowledge about the selection of San Diego
as the site of the Republican National Convention as well as what
occurred during a meeting in the office of former Atty. Gen. John
Mitchell last April 29.
APOLLO 16 ASTRONAUTS John Young, Charles Duke, Jr., and
Thomas Mattingly rocketed into lunar orbit yesterday to begint
a six-day scientific exploration of the moon.
Both the spacecraft, lunar lander Orion and commandship Casper,
and the astronauts themselves were in good shape and ready for the
challenge, despite a series of problems that began almost from
the hour of launch last Sunday.
Today, after orbiting the moon once in the- lunar lander, Young
and Duke will ignite the powerful rocket engine on Orion and begin
a long-arching drop toward a, crater-scarred plateau high in the
moon's southern mountains.
THE FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION yesterday accused
the nation's top three manufacturers or painkillers of unfair and
misleading advertising.
The complaint challenges claims made by American Home
Products Corp., Bristol Myers, and Sterling Drug Inc., that its
products are superior to others.
Proposed orders by the commission would require the companies
to disclose the presence of aspirin or caffein in their products and
call on the manufacturers to run corrective advertisements for two
years to counter the alleged misrepresentations.

BRITAIN'S INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS COAJRT yesterday or-
dered a 14-day cooling-off period in the nationwide railroad 'go-
slow' strike, which has reduced rail traffic to a crawl and enraged
thousands of commuters. 1
The decision of the court was mate on a request from the
government for a 21-day cooling-off period.
The three unions involved in the wage dispute boycotted the
hearing, and whether they or individual railmen will comply was not
known.

THE NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER released 14 feminine
names for this season's storms, and a feminist has lodged a
protest.
Roxcy Bolton, a former national vice-president of the National
Organization of Women, says she has asked the National Weather
Service to change its policy and find some other method of naming
hurricanes, but has been ignored.
"They just won't change. They are too conditioned to this sort
of thing and don't realize they're casting a slur on waven," said
Bolton.

The Gross National Product,
(GNP), the output of the nation's
goods and services, increased by
11.8 per cent or $30.3 billion in
the January-March quarter. How-

crease, 6.2 per cent, resulted from
higher prices.
