Pens in Impeachment Had Misprint

           January 11, 1999
           JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) -- The pens used by U.S.
           senators to pledge impartial justice in President
           Clinton's impeachment trial contained a misprint.
           Instead of ``United States Senator,'' the writing
           on the pens said ``Untied States Senator.''
           ``The Senate is like any good customer of ours,
           and we will reprint the order and make things
           right,'' said Michele Szynal, a spokeswoman for
           The Gillette Co.'s Stationery Products Group in
           Each of the 100 senators got to keep the black and
           silver Parker Vector pen used to sign the pledge
           in the Senate chamber Thursday.
