use file from P-Hager, 597-34; E-Hager, 97-35
In 1972, Hager was working for American Tobacco and he wrote about ways to raise the nicotine levels in cigarettes.
The memo came up again during Hager's pretrial testimony this summer in a Pennsylvania lawsuit against cigarette makers.
Hager says the memo answered a theoretical question.
He also says that American Tobacco didn't control nicotine levels in its products.

In an article about the memo in the Richmond-Times Dispatch, Hager responded through his spokesman by saying -- quote "I feel like I've been raped."

((It was a full state funeral the same sort of service accorded to the two founders of India, Gandhi and Nehru, when they died.
Her coffin was borne on a gun carriage, the same one used for Gandhi and Nehru, and flanked by soldiers from the Indian Army.
Thousands of people lined the streets along which the funeral cortege travelled, some with homemade signs of goodbye, and flowers in her memory.
On the back streets of Calcutta, they watched it on TV, in those few homes lucky enough to have a TV. The kids were doing their lessons, and the subject was Mother Teresa.
William Rosario couldn't see the cortege in person because he's got a bad leg.

Two thousand people, among them First Lady Hillary Clinton, attended the three-hour funeral mass for Mother Teresa inside an athletic stadium.
A message from Pope John Paul the Second celebrated her love and passion for the poor of the world, and noted the poor are still with us, and called on others to continue her work.
The crowds were still there despite the monsoon rains, when the funeral cortege returned down Calcutta's boulevards to the Mother House of her Missionaries of Charity for a simple, private burial service.
It's expected that one day, the grave of Mother Teresa will become a shrine.
As the Pope noted, the poor are still with us, and with the death of Mother Teresa, the poor of the world are infinitely poorer.))
