WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate
yesterday approved a $36 billion
military authorization bill including $2
billion for a nuclear aircraft carrier
that could be the last in a long line of
these giant ships.
The bill, authorizing funds for
weapons spending and research in the
budget year beginning Oct. 1, was ap-
proved on an 87-2 vote with only Sens.
Mark Hatfield (R-Ore.), and William
Proxmire (D-Wis.), in dissent.
A HOUSE-APPROVED version of the
bill would authorize $38 billion. Dif-
ferences between them will have to be
ironed out by Senate and House
Earlier, by a voice vote, the Senate
adopted a policy statement asserting
that future aircraft carriers must be
substantially smaller and less costly
than the current line of 1,000-foot-long

fume over trademark
WASHINGTON (AP) - Two anti-
smoking groups, presumably united in
their hatred of burning tobacco, may
become locked in court battle over the
similarity of their names. Get ready for
ASH vs. NASH.
The aggrieved group is Action on
Smoking and Health, a 10-year-old out-
fit claiming to be "the only national
nonprofit organization devoted solely to
the problems of smoking and health and
ASH FILED SUIT in U.S. District
Court against NASH - the National
Association for Smoking and Health,
Inc. - claiming trademark in-
fringement, unfair competition and
common law deceit.
The suit says NASH is peddling an
"anti-smoking spray can" and anti-
smoker sentiments. ASH is especially
disturbed on the latter, pointing out that
it is against the noxious habit, not the
smoker behind the cigarette.
THE 11-PAGE complaint is full of
complications. It seems that ASH lear-
ned that NASH was to be sold but it ap-
parently can't find the group. The com-
plaint says NASH's last known address
was on East Jewell Avenue in Denver.
ASH is concerned that its reputation
"as a source of expert advice and
reliable information in the field of
smoking and health and nonsmokers'
rights" might vanish like a puff of
smoke through confusion with the more
According to the suit, NASH's anti-
smoker spray "in essence directed the
user to spray a smoker and-or the
smoker's smoking material with the
contents of the can." The spray sells for
$4.95 a can with discounts for bulk pur-
THE INTEREST of ASH in NASH
was aroused when people started sen-
ding in a nationally-syndicated column
praising Paul Wright as "a genuine
American hero." Wright is identified as
the founder, executive director and
principal incorporator of NASH.
The columnist, Bob Greene, quotes
Wright as saying, "when you see
someone smoking in a public place, ask
him politely to put his cigarette out. If
he refuses spray the hell out of him."
ASH says people were confused and
uncertain on whether NASar really was
ASH. And, ASH claims, NASH inten-
tionally used marks designed to look as
if they originated with ASH.
The federal court-is asked to put a
stop to all these actions and to assess
damages for injury.
It also is asked to seize "all profits
received from the sale of goods or ser-
vices" identified as coming from
National Association for Smoking
and Health or NASH."
Neither Wright nor anyone else with
NASH could be reached for comment.
