Rocky Sees No Conflict In Fortune NKW YORK (AP) Vice- president-designate Rockefel- ler said Tuesday he foresaw no conflict of interest between his multimillion-dollar business holdings and the nation's second highest office. "Your basic assumption will be proven wrong, that a great influence Rockefeller told newsmen. "My only con- stitutional duty would be to preside over the senate, and the conflict of interest there is rather limited." However, he added that should any conflict arise, "1 would have no problems in taking whatever steps are necessary."

Females are about 5 percent efficient and males are only :i percent efficient." The two physiologists think the female's greater amount of adipose or fatty tissues In the chest and legs make her more buoyant than the male. Rennie. says the lower amount uf adipose tissue gives males a water weight twice that of females. "We think men use a lot of their total energy just to slay he said. "But women are already floating and can use their energy to propel themselves." Less Energy The scientists .say this factor lets females expend 30 percent less energy while swimming the same distance at the same velocity as males in their studies. Rennie and Pendergasl say their experiments aren't aimed at water safety applications, but that some "common sense rules" became apparent from the studies. The most important of these rules, says Pendergasl, is for swimmers to maintain a cons- tan! pace and not lo hurry. "In land terms, 'Walk, don't should be the says Dr. Rennie. "You're not going to get there itiiickor by hurrying. Chances are you're mil going In get there at all." So lar. the scientists have limited their studies to one swimming stroke, the over- arm crawl. Now they are going lo begin studies of other strokes, as well as underwater They also want to lest some of this country's best young swimmers to see how their ef- ficiencies ary from the average person's. Defends Prior Clearance for Confessed Spy BONN. Germany (AI') The chief of West Germany's counterinlelligence service defended his agency V- decision lo give security clearance to Gucnler Guillaiime four years before Guillaume's arrest on spy charges precipitated the resignation of former Chan- cellor Willy Brandt. (luenler Nollau, president of the Federal Office for the Pro- tection of the told a special parliamentary inves- tigating committee the clearance was justified "in Hie light of information available at the time." Nollau conceded, however, that suspicion had been raised prior to the security check that had come to the Wesl from Kast Berlin in lo infiltrate Wesl German publishing houses. But this suspicion, Niillau said, was not substantiated by informal ion provided lo his agency. Gnillaiime, who rose lo become one of Brandl's three personal aides, was arrested last April and accused of being an Kasl German spy.
