The General Dynamics Corp., saying it did not want to further damage relations with the Navy, has paid a $676,283 fine--10 times the value of the gifts--to satisfy a finding that it gave improper presents to retired Adm. Hyman G. Rickover between 1961 and 1977, officials disclosed. The payment satisfies one of the demands Navy Secretary John F. Lehman Jr. made May 21 when he announced the results of several Pentagon investigations into the giant contractor’s business practices.
