CARTER URGED TO CURB INVESTMENTS:

Senate
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Carter
ministration should forcefully dis-
urage U.S. investment in South
rica because of that country's official
licy of apartheid, a Senate subcom-
ittee said yesterday.
"We're saying that if the South
rican government wants to continue
wn the road of legalized repression,
is country is not going to support it,"
id Sen. Dick Clark (D-Iowa), chair-
an of the Senate foreign relations
bcommittee on Africa.
THE UNITED STATES has publicly
ndemned South Africa's racial
icies and'refused to sell arms to the
vernment of Prime Minister John
)rster.
The present policy is to neither en-
'urage nor discourage trade with
uth Africa.
There was no immediate reaction
om the White House on the subcom-
ittee's suggestion that the Carter ad-
inistration apply more stringent
onomic pressures to show its disap-
oval of South Africa's policy of apar-
eid, or separation of the races.

EW YORK (AP) - "Am I
gnant or not?" is a question that
erican women can now answer
themselves in the privacy of their
homes.
kit distributed by Warner-Chil-
- E.P.T. (Early Pregnancy
t) - is said to be capable of de-
ing pregnancy as early as nine
s after a woman has missed an
ected menstrual period.
'HE KIT WAS introduced to the
dia here yesterday.
he kit has a test tube, which
tains chemicals that should de-
t a pregnancy hormone in a
man's urine; a dropper; a vial
h purified water; and a test tube
der with mirror.
o use the kit, a woman must wait
east nine days after her period
due, then place the purified
er and three drops of urine in the
*, shake the test tube for 10
onds, and let the tube stand in the
der for two hours.

IF A BROWN ring forms in the
bottom of the tube, as seen in the
mirror, she can be 97 per cent sure
she is pregnant.
"As soon as possible, we strongly
advise that she consult her doctor,
who is best able to advise her
further," Flanagan said. The brown
ring is caused by mixture with an
anti-hormone serum and a coloring
agent.
"If the pregnancy hormone is not
detected," Flanagan added, "only a
yellow-red deposit will be seen."
DR. ARTHUR Flanagan, vice
president of medical affairs for the
pharmaceutical company, said early
detection is important because "the
first 60 days are crucial in healthy
fetal development."
He said that during this time the
expectant mother who knows she's
pregnant can take steps to avoid such
things as heavy cigarette smoking,
excessive alcohol and even common

household drugs which could cause
birth defects and intrauterine death.
Gloria Painter, a nurse who super-
vised clinical research on the kit,
said other women may want to find
out whether they were pregnant
because of "marital involvement."
She said that "there's an awful lot of
cloak-and-dagger work" involved in
extra-marital affairs.
SHE SAID some women take the
attitude that "I'll kill myself if my
husband finds out I'm pregnant."
Early private detection also "lends
objectivity" to the decision of some
women considering abortion, said
Dr. Howard McQuarrie, an obstetri-
cian who participated in the clinical
research.
Duane Miller, president of Warner-
Chilcott, said the kit is distributed to
pharmacies for about $6 each and is
expected to retail for less than $10. It
was introduced in New England in
April 1976, and has now been distrib-
uted nationwide.

differences. The newspaper also said
Tito has urged President Carter to

Liberation Organization.
Sadat, speaking with reporters

Marston on the warpath
Marston calls for
probe ohis firin
WASHINGTON (AP)-Former U.S. attorney David Marston of Phila-
delphia said the FBI and a federal grand jury should investigate whether
any obstruction of justice occurred in his removal from office by the Carter
administration.
Addressing a National Press Club luncheon, Marston elaborated on
earlier statements that the Justice Department had taken a "shortcut
procedure" in investigating a possible obstructionof justice.
DEPARTMENT OFFICIALS said Tuesday, after taking affidavits from
Attorney General Griffin Bell and other department officials along with an
unsworn statement from President Carter, that neither Bell nor Carter
knew Marston's office was investigating Rep. Joshua Eilberg (D-Pa.) when
they decided to fire Marston.
Eilberg called Carter on Nov. 4 to press for Marston's ouster and the
president responded by urging Bell to speed the attorney general's earlier
decision to remove Marston.
The former Philadelphia prosecutor was removed last Friday, declining
an administration offer to remain on for a brief period until a permanent
replacement could be found.
MARSTON SAID yesterday that a "double standard" was being
applied in investigating what administration officials knew or didn't
know.
"We have a double standard for important public officials. I think it's
wrong," Marston said. He said any investigation of obstruction of justice
should be handled by the FBI with witnesses called before a grand jury.
The department has said the case is still open and its Criminal Division
will seek to determine if Eilberg knew, he was under investigation by
Marston's office when he asked Carter to fire the former prosecutor.
ONE OF THE CHIEF unanswered questions is whether Assistant
Attorney General Benjamin Civiletti knew in November that Eilberg was
under investigation.
; . Marston said he told= one of Civiletti's deputies, Russell Baker Jr. on
Nov. 16 "in great detail, as much detail as I had" about his probe of
Hahnemann Hospital in Philadelphia. The investigatio of Eilberg is said
to focus on what role he played in securing federal funds for a $65-million
addition to the hospital.
"I UNDERSTAND FROM public reports that Mr. Civiletti doesn't
recall that," Marston said. Civiletti has said he doesn't remember Baker
ever telling him about the hospital probe back in Nvember.
Marston also said he believes his removal has encouraged "the fixers
and the middlemen to believe the fix is in."He sail it would take at least a
couple of months for the U.S. attorney's office in Philadelphia to regain its
former credibility.
In response to another question, Marston also denied any plans now
to seek statewide office in Pennsylvania. "The only thing I'm going to run
for at this point is cover," he said.
MEANWHILE, PRESIDENT Carter's spokesmax said yesterday Car-
ter had been told that Eilberg was considered "of investigative interest"
when he reported he was unaware of any probe of a member of Congress in
connection with the removal of Marston.
But Press Secretary Jody Powell said no inconsistency was involved.
He drew a distinction between the phrase "of investigaive interest" and a
member of Congress being the target of an investigation.
Powell, posing a question at his daily White House sews briefing and
then answering it himself, said: "Did the president know his congressman
was under investigation at the time the congressman caled in and at the
time he (Carter) called the attorney general? The answer isno."

SADAT said there might be "some
news" in a few days but would not
elaborate, saying matters were "in a
quiet period in which all parties con-
cerned re-evaluate their position."
Senior Egyptian sources said they
believe that the political talk,
broken off by Egypt last week, coufd
resume within 10 days.
"We are looking for a demonstra-
tion of 'flexibility from Israel," said
one Egyptian source.
The political talks were suspended
against a background of hardening
public positions and Israeli objec-
tions to Egyptian press remarks it,
considered anti-Semitic. Sadat ac-
cused Israel of not negotiating in
good faith.
The military talks center on with-
drawal of Israeli troops from the
Sinai Peninsula, which Israel seized
from Egypt in the 1967 Mideast War.
In an average year, the world can
expect at least one "great" earth-
quake (one which registers a magni-
tude of eight or more in the Richter
scale); 18 "major" quakes (7 to 7.9
on the scale); and about 120 "strong"
tremors of 6 to 6.9, say scientists at
the U.S. Geological Survey's Nation-
al Earthquake Information Service.
