PAPEETE, Tahiti (fcPl) The French government today finally confirmed last week* end's nuclear test in the Pacific and said the explosion brought satisfactory results. Aymar Achitie*Fould, secretary of state to the Ministry of Armies, said: "The test was carried out to the satisfaction of all." Achille-Fould, who flew to Tahiti from the Mururoa Atoll test site 720 miles away, warned newsmen about accepting the initial estimate of the size of Saturday's blast by the New Zealand protest frigate nell summer recreation program will be held next Saturday from 6-8 p.m. at the Buslh- ndl Swimming Pool. Last Saturday's party was canceled because of bad weather. explosion "It is not wise to accord too much faith to the reports given by the Otago concerning the energy and power of the bomb," the official said. Crewmen aboard the Otago, which steamed into the test area with a cabinet minister aboard to protest the blast, said the explosion appeared to be in the five kltoton range, approximating the force of 5,000 tons of TNT. Asked if there would be other explosions soon,, Achille-Fould said: "The position of the government is to be silent in such matters. The hypothesis of other tests is not excluded." Reports from Paris have said two other test explosions could quickly follow Saturday's blast and there could be three more at the end of August. In Wellington, New Zealand Prime Minister Norman Kirk said today the Otago's vigil off Mururoa Atoll could force France to either abandon or modify future nuclear He said the protest "has,around aroused enough attention in enough places around the world to have a continuing effect and may lead to some substantial reductions or abandonment of the project." The Otago moved back/into the 72-mile security zone Mururoa today after taking on fuel from the Australian oiler HMAS Supply. Heavy fain fell around the French Pacific test site today and officials said a nuclear blast during the day appeared unlikely. Kirk, however, said he expected the next explosion on Wednesday.

Libyans Stage Sihin Strikes | Against Colonel CAIRO (UPI) — Thousands of Libyans staged demonstrations and sit-in strikes in Tripoli and Benghazi today, demanding that Col. Moammar Khadafy withdraw his resignation as head of the ruling military government. The Libyan radio said Khada­ fy planned to reply today in Benghazi, saying if he would bow once more to popular pressure—as he did when he resigned earlier. The 31-year-old Khadafy, who has ruled as chairman of the Revolution Command Council since it seized power from the monarchy in September 1969, announced his resignation last Friday. In a cable to President Anwar Sadat of Egypt, Khadafy said he resigned July 11 to 'pave the way for the union of Egypt and Libya." The two countries planned to merge Sept. 1 but Egypt later cooled on the idea and postponed it for one year. The 10-man Revolution Coun* |cil, in a statement issued early j Saturday, rejected the resignation and urged Khadafy to remain in office.
