"Pfizer agreed to sell to Northwestern products at whsle. price where products are not re-sold to Pay 'N Save affiliated outlets," a Pfizer representative told "The Pink Sheet." The mfr. and Northwestern settled the suit on Oct. 12. Pfizer is the fourth company to reach a long-term settlement with Northwestern.

The case is scheduled to go to trial on Feb. 25, 1985.
