PA6EZ2 T U C S O N D A I L Y CITIZEN Delayed Reports Cited 1 - Pill Peril Probe WASHINGTON --UPI-- Federal investigators today sought the reasons for delayed reporting of the harmful qualities of a birth control pill that caused cancer in tests with laboratory animals. The pill, under development by Merck, Sharp Dohme, also was used in tests involving 340 women, none of ·whom developed the cancer found in two test dogs. Human testing was stopped in January, a month after cancer was found in the dogs. A House government operations subcommittee was told by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) yesterday that the company's vacation period delayed the reports on the results of the animal testing for MK655. The company said this was "absurd." It said in a statement that it had acted "responsibly and as promptly as warranted." Any delay was needed for scientific assessment of the tests, the statement said. FDA Commissioner James L. Goddard said he did not believe the delays "are acceptable, nor do I believe that any scientist believes these kind of delays are acceptable." FDA counsel William Goodrich said reporting delays were a "violation" of FDA regulations. Goddard said he would recommend criminal action if the FDA investigation warrants it. FDA officials said the dogs were killed last July after they were subjected to massive doses of MK655, but they were not analyzed until last November or December because of a company "vacation period." The results of the tests were sent in January to FDA and showed cancer in two dogs. The company then halted all testing of the drug. The subcommittee chairman, Rep. L. H. Fountain, D-N.C., was critical of the FDA for not having policed' the use of the drug more carefully. He suggested stricter rules so the results of animal tests are known before any human testing is begun.

UME.lthSt. -- JM-U71 CAPE KENNEDY -- UPI -America's Gemini 8 spaceship has cleared the last big hurdle in a long series of tests leading up to Tuesday's start of a new space spectacle calling for the first two-satellite hookup and a r e c o r d "walk" around the world. The craft that will take astronauts Neil Armstrong and David Scott on the three-day orbital voyage wound up an 11- hour simulated flight test late last night with no apparent difficulty. This cleared the way for the start of final launch preparations. The pilots spent about five hours at their ship's controls during the exercise to make sure that everything was set for one of the nation's most ambitious manned spaceflights. ,T^ **J x ^ Gemini's launch doubleheader is scheduled to get under way at 10 a.m. EST Tuesday with the launch of Gemini's Atlas- Agena rendezvous rocket. If the Agena avoids the problems of its predecessor and reaches orbit, Armstrong and Scott will be rocketed in pursuit at 9:41 a.m. Tucson tune. The spacecraft is scheduled to rendezvous with the orbiting Agena 5y 2 hours later and fly formation with it for 45 minutes. Then Armstrong will attempt to hook Gemini 8 up with the Agena to give the United Slates another space "first" Early Wednesday, if all goes according to plan, Scott will climb out of the capsule and s t a r t a record-breaking two hours and 10 minute spacewalk. While floating free of his cap- If/ ff BfODi/VO sule, the 33-year-old Air Force major will use a special power tool to loosen and tighten four bolts, open a meteoroid detection device on the Agena and retrieve a radiation experiment from Gemini's rear equipment section.
