The review is part of the agency's look at the entire patent medicine business. Miles released the testimony, given Monday, in response to a new attack on Alka-Seltzer made during the weekend by the Ralph Nader-backed Health Research Group. The group said Miles deliberately withheld evidence from a different PDA panel that reviewed antacids because the evidence showed that the aspirin in Alka-Seltzer produced excessive bleeding in test subjects. Adrien Ringuette, secretary and general counsel for the pharmaceutical firm, told the aspirin review panel Monday that the Health Research Group's charges were categorically untrue. He said the study cited in the group's complaint was conducted in Australia and involved an Alka-Seltzer with a slightly different formula than is sold in in - I Modern Metallur the United States. It was the difference in formulatlon-not the results of the test-that prompted Miles not to give the test results to the panel which was considering antacids, he said.

But the similarity is not all that simple. Money Clips Coins are commercial vehicles of expressed value which can be classified as: domestic or foreign; uncirculated or circulated; rare or common; expensive or inexpensive. Medals, on the other hand, are more or less free agents. They conform to no predetermined standards, leaving the composition, size and subject matter solely to the discretion of the producer's concept of what constitutes a salable collectors' item. MEDALS ARE almost always domestic in origin; un­ circulated; seldom rare and Lords Consider Caterpillar Case LONDON (UP!) - The House of Lords is to consider the case of the hawkmoth caterpillar found in a can of peas bought by Mrs. Winifred Voss at her local supermarket in Dorchester. Smedley Ltd. was fined $62 last year and the local appeals court dismissed its appeal. On Monday, the high court gave the company leave to appeal to the House of Lords that it had taken all reasonable care io avoid such incidents. S ALL OVER TV FANS!

A true medalist will concentrate his efforts on 1) logical Baseball Fan Strikes Out MILWAUKEE, Wis. (UPI) It took pneumonia to bring Diana Deis down from her 40- foot tower. The 18-year old baseball fan vowed she would stay atop the tower in front of a local car dealer until the Milwaukee Brewers won seven games in a row. That was June 23. Since then, Miss Deis has spent 18 hours a day in a tent on the tower, but it was announced Monday n she was forced to give up' her wait because of pneumonia. No one has volunteered to replace her.

He will limit his edition if it is a series and restrict his production if it is a single issue. To accomplish these three goals a medal producer must have on his payroll 1) a competent historical researcher, 2) a professional sculptor Known for something more than soap carving, and 3) the best die men money will buy. A majority of the so-called "investors ingots" being sold, today are nothing more than silver paperweights totally lacking in collectors' value. There is a noticeable absence of accurate historical detail and sculptural skill which leaves only the purity of the composition to justify their existence. Even this must be checked thoroughly from time to time because some ingots are known to exist with nothing more than a .900 silver content. REPUTABLE MEDALLIC art and private mint firms prefer to conduct their business on the premise that the hobby of medal collecting comes first and the more accurate the historical details, the more attractive the piece will be as a collectors' item, After four years of metallurgical research, the Letcher Mint developed a "Two Color" work of art consisting of five grains of 24 karat pure gold fused configuratively in the center of a 24.0 gram (370 grains) .999 pure silver medal. The 1.53" Parthenon medal is the third in a series of two- color pieces produced at the I/etcher Mint in Lancaster, Calif. It commemorates what historians regard as the most magnificent a r c h i tectural marvel of the ages. The building stands today at the summit of the Acropolis in Athens, Greece. THE OBVERSE features a sculptured bas relief of the Parthenon in brilliant pure gold against a background of pure silver. The reverse is engraved with the words from a poem by Lord Byron appropriately written about this Grecian structure. Interested readers may write The Letcher Mint, P. O. Box 107, Lancaster, Calif. 93534, for further details. Only 10,000 pieces will be struck and they sell for $25 each. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) conclude that Alka-Seltzer caused any significant blood loss; but tot. Sidney Wolfe, director of the Health Research Group, said he did his own statistical analysis of the study and found that Alka-Seltzer causes "significant bleeding in normal people." Ringuette said Miles believes Alka-Seltzer is safe and effective for upset stomach alone— not just in combination with a .headache; but he said "we are prepared to modify our label indications so that the product is not recommended for antacid use alone, pending the development of further clinical evidence."
