OVERRIDING CHINESE OBJECTIONS, the U.N. Conference
on the Human Environment adopted yesterday a declaration of
principles to guide the way to a cleaner, healthier world.
China objected that the principle on nuclear weapons was not
strong enough and wanted written in a call for the "elimination and
complete destruction of nuclear weapons," as well as condemnation
of chemical and biological weapons.
The conference called for "urgent action" this year on a con-
vention to prevent dumping harmful substances into the oceans. It
also adopted a kind of environmental manual with more than 100
recommendations to give the world a start on attacking the
problems of preserving the human environment.
THE FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION (FDA) dis-
closed yesterday that it will force a public hearing on the con-
troversial livestock drug diethylstilbesterol (DES) by proposing
a ban on the drug next week.
The hormone, fed to about 25 million steers annually to speed
weight gain with less feed, has been shown to cause cancer in
laboratory animals. It also has been linked to vaginal cancers in a
small number of young women whose mothers took the drug during
pregnancy to prevent miscarriages.
Sen. William Proxmire, (D-Wis.), who introduced a bill last
November to ban DES in animal feed, called the FDA's action feeble.
He described it as "another tardy step down a road that must lead
to a complete ban if the national interest is to be served."
SIRHAN SIRHAN'S murder conviction in the assassination
of Sen. Robert Kennedy was upheld yesterday by the California
Supreme Court. His sentence was changed from death to life
The modification of sentence complied with the court's ruling
earlier this year which abolished capital punishment in California.
Attorneys for Sirhan had asked for a new trial on grounds that
an illegal search led to his conviction and sentencing.
UNFAIR CAMPAIGN PRACTICE charges were leveled against
the forces of Sen. Hubert Humphrey (D-Minn.) by Sen. George
McGovern's California campaign manager.
He accused Humphrey of making a series of false statements
about McGovern's record. Among these the campaign manager point-
e4 to Humphrey statements that "McGovern. voted to condemn
American POW's to the communist imprisonment forever," and
"McGovern voted for repeal of the 1964 Civil Rights Act."
The accusation was made in a letter received by the Fair Cam-
paign Practices Committee, Inc., asking for an investigation. The
letter also said the issue was being referred to the Los Angeles County
