Court dismisses North case
WASHINGTON A federal judge on Thursday dismissed a suit by Lt.
Col. Oliver North that sought to stop an independent counsel's investiga
tion of his central role in the Iran-Contra affair.
U.S. District Judge Barrington D. Parker said North's contention that
the office of independent counsel is unconstitutional was premature.
"The plaintiff has not suffered an injury of sufficient keenness to .
warrant the court's intercession," Parker said. "For that reason, the court
finds that plaintiffs challenge to the constitutionality of the independent
counsel machinery is not ripe for adjudication and that his complaints
should be dismissed."

Soviets stage second! Bucleartest
MOSCOW The Soviet Union deto
nated an underground nuclear explo
sion Thursday, the second test in the
two weeks since the Kremlin ended a
19-month halt in nuclear weapons
At the same time, a Kremlin spo
kesman rejected as "speculations and
outright lies" American charges of
Soviet cheating on arms accords.
But the spokesman, Boris D. Pyady
shev, expressed optimism that the
superpowers could soon agree to rid
Europe of their medium-range missiles.
He said Soviet envoys to the Geneva
arms talks had been told "to work for
agreement in the shortest time pos
sible." The underground nuclear explosion
in Soviet Kazakhstan was the second
since Feb. 26 when the Kremlin ended
the test moratorium that had been a
centerpiece of Soviet leader Mikhail S.
Gorbachev's foreign policy.
Soviet officials urged the United
States to half testing and have asserted
that the American refusal to make the
test freeze mutual forced the Kremlin
to resume testing.
The unilateral Soviet moratorium
was announced Aug. 6, 1945, the 40th
anniversary of the U.S. atomic hnmhinrt
of Hiroshima, Japan.
The Tass news agency said that at 5
a.m. Moscow time at the Semipalatinsk
test range, a nuclear device was deto
nated with a yield of "up to 20 kilot
ons," the force of the U.S. atomic bomb
dropped on Hiroshima.
Tass said the blast at the site 1,700
miles southeast of Moscow had been
conducted "with a view to upgrading
military technology," but the news
agency provided no further details.
Scientists discover largest known galaiiy
WASHINGTON Astronomers say they have discovered
the largest known galaxy, a giant spiral of stars 13 times as
big as the Milky Way.
The galaxy, located 300 million light-years from Earth in
the direction of the constellation Anoromeda, is an oddly
shaped mass of Stars and gases which puts out tremendous
amounts of energy, says a report to be published Friday in
the journal Science.
Researchers say the galaxy, called Markarian 348, is 1.3
million light-years in diameter. The Milky Way, in which the
earth's solar system is located, is about 100,000 light-years
A light-year is the distance light travels in a vacuum at
186,000 miles per second in a year's time, about 5.9 trillion
Dr. Susan M. Simkin, professor of astronomy at Michigan
State University, made the discovery with Dr. Hong-Jun Su
of Nanjing, China, formerly a visiting scientist at Michigan
state, and Drs. Jacqueline van Gorkom and John Hibbard of
the National Radio Astronomy Observatory at Socorro, N.M.
The galaxy appears to have at least one, and possible two,
long spiraling arms which are tightly wound near the center
and branch out at irregular angles.
Markarian 348 is the largest isolated galaxy seen outside
of collections of galaxies known as galactic clusters, and
one of the largest objects in the known universe, according
to a statement by the National Science Foundation, which
sponsored the work.
The giant mass of stars has been known to optical astron
omers for more than 20 years, but was thought to be about
the size of the Milky Way, an average-sized galaxy, said the
