Utility
officials
defend
nuclear
plants

LANSING (UPI) - Officials of the state's two largest
electric utilities yesterday defended on economic and safety
grounds their companies' on-going nuclear power plant con-
struction projects.
Representatives of Detroit Edison Co. and Consumers
Power Co., appearing before a legislative panel on nuclear
power, explained how their firms decided to build nuclear
plants near Monroe and at Midland.
THE SPECIAL Joint Committee on Nuclear Energy was
created to study nuclear power in Michigan in the aftermath
of the Three Mile Island incident earlier this year in Pen-
nsylvania.
Edison Vice-President Wayne Jens said his company
decided to build its Fermi II plant near Monroe in the 1960s at
a time when the general attitude toward nuclear power was
favorable.
A series of events, including inflation, new regulations
and court decisions, combined to delay the project's com-
pletion date from 1974 to 1982 and swell its projected cost
from $230 million to $1.3 billion, Jens said.

"COMPANY COMPARISONS of nuclear versus coal-
fired plants to be built in the future have consistently shown
an economic advantage for nuclear," Jens said.
Jens attributed the advantage to two factors - capital
costs of building both types of plants have escalated at the
same rate and all fuels have experienced a very rapid cost
increase.
When fuel prices rise, nuclear plants have an advantage
over conventional facilities since uranium supplies represent
only a small portion of their operating costs, he said.
"IF ESCALATION of fuel costs continues as in the past
or the escalation should be greater, the economic advantage
of existing or nearly completed nuclear plants will 'grow
larger and larger because such a large portion of the cost of
these plants is the investments which is not subject to further
escalation," he said.
"Therefore, Detroit Edison and its customers will benefit
in the operation of Fermi II since the inflationary impact on
the price of electricity delivered to the company's customers
in the future will be minimized."

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme
Court, in a case that could affect the
ownership of a million acres of far-
mland in 17 western states,, agreed
yesterday to resolve a stormy Califor-
nia dispute over land anl water.
The justices will deci'de whether farm
owners in the state's Imperial Valley
must sell huge portions of their land -
everything in excess of 160 acres for
each family member - to continue
receiving free government irrigation.
A FEDERAL appeals court has ruled
that a 77-year-old law prohibits free
water, vital for crop, success, to larger
farms. Of the almost 10 million acres in
17 states covered by the law, ownership
of about one million acres might have to
be redistributed if irrigation is to con-
tinue.
In other matters yesterday, the high
court took these actions:
" Rebuffed a request to shield fiction
from libel lawsuits by leaving intact a
$75,000 award against the author and
publisher of a 1971 novel. The court
refused to review a California court
ruling that a leader of nude group
therapy sessions, Paul Bindrum, was
libeled by his alleged portrayal in the
novel "Touching" by Gwen Davis Mit-

the hostages being held have been
singled out for intensive interrogation
in preparation for possible trials on
spying charges.
The eight include Malcolm Kalp and
William Daugherty, who militants
claim worked in Iran as agents of the
Central Intelligence Agency under the
covers of second and third secretaries,
the student said.
HE SAID the hostages were being
questioned separately by "non-student
experts" but were being confronted
with each other when their answers
conflicted.
The deposed Iranian leader, mean-
while, was reported secluded in com-
fortable, heavily guarded VIP
headquarters at Lackland Air Force
Base in San Antonio, Texas, yesterday
after being moved from a New York
hospital.
AN AIR BASE official said the shah,
his wife and entourage were staying at

apartments reserved for visiting of-
ficers and dignitaries. The surprise
move came after news leaked out that
the shah was staying on a private fourth
floor ward of the Willford Hall Air For-
ce Hospital on the base.
At the United Nations, four more
countries urged yesterday that the
hostages held in Iran be released, but
production of a resolution was delayed
at the Security Council's fourth meeting
on the crisis.
Swaziland, Austria, Belgium and
Mauritius lined up with 28 previous
speakers in protesting that the embassy
takeover violated universally
recognized principles of diplomatic
immunity.
A preliminary resolution text
privately circulated by Nigeria was un-
derstood to call on.Iran to release the
hostages, oni'Iran ancf the United'Sta'tes
to exercise restraint and try to recon-
cile their differences, and on both sides
to respect each other's independence.

Which means that if only 1 % more people-

Giving blood is easy. You hardly feel it (in fact,

And, of course, everybody feels better emotionally.
