            "Calcium Channel Blockers May Raise [breast] Cancer Risk
            Washington Post, 16 October 97, A8.
                 A study conducted by Annette Fitzpatrick of the University
                 of Washington in Seattle, Janet Daling of the Fred
                 Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, and others
                 suggests that women 65 and older who took calcium channel
                 blockers may be twice as likely to develop breast cancer.
                 The study appears in the Oct. 15 issue of _Cancer_ [which
                 the OPPT Library does not receive].
            "Scientists Want to Keep Academy Process Intact [Science
            Briefs]."  USA Today, 14 October 97, 4D.
                 Eighty four scientists are asking the Supreme Court to
                 reverse the ruling of the U.S. Court of Appeals that
                 National Academy of Sciences (NAS) committee deliberations
                 fall under the Federal Advisory Committee Act and must be
                 open to the public.  The academy and the scientists contend
                 that the law does not apply to the NAS because it was
                 established by a congressional charter in 1863 and is not
                 part of the government.
