It was estimated that at least 20
to 40 of these women would have
become pregnant without t h e
treatment. Since then, Dr. J. R.
.Udrey of the University of North
Carolina, in reviewing the study,
has suggested that the figure
should be as high as 100 pregnan-
cies.
But follow-ups on the subjects
have shown no pregnancies at all.
More than 30 per cent of the
women noticed no side effects
from taking the pill, and the most
common complaint, coming from
13 per cent of the patients, was
intermittent nausea and vomiting.I
Many of the other reactions were
milder symptoms, such as head-
ache and weight gain.
"As far as we know, there is no
lasting side-effect," Kuchera said.
"The girls who have received this
pill say that they would rather
have a little nausea and vomiting
than the risk of an unwanted preg-
nancy."
One senior agreed with Kuchera,
although she says she had been
so sick she "just wanted to die."
"I was very sick for three orj
four days, and I spent the whole
first day vomiting. But I still think
it's a good thing - I didn't get
pregnant."

Moore said, according to Stennis,
"They expected hostile reaction,.
but the intelligence officers said
if they did not meet hostile reaction
'you would not release your
bombs'."
Stennis said, regarding the fresh
testimony on the Navy, and the
Air Force portion of the probe,
"I'm concerned about several
things, this is very serious," but
he did not elaborate.
Two other senators, Stuart Sy-
mington (D-Mo.) and Richard
Schweiker (R-Pa.) expressed con-
cern after hearing Groepper's tes-
timony.
"If this fellow's testimony was
right, more than one service was
involved in preplanned bombing
raids regardless of reaction," said
Symington.
