Nuclear foe knocks power plants


Citing such problems as ineffective
licensing regulations, spiraling con-
struction costs, and radioactive wastes,
long-time nuclear power opponent
Mary Sinclair described what she sees
as the present situation and proposed
alternatives to nuclear power in a
speech at the Ann Arbor Public Library
last night.
In the talk, sponsored by the
Women's International League for
Peace and Freedom, Sinclair told the
audience of about 80 that she is against
nuclear energy because "we, have
shown ourselves incapable of properly
handling it."
Bruce Harper of the New York Jets
led the National Football League in
total yardage in 1978 with 2,157, the
result of kickoff returns, punt returns,
pass receptions and rushing attempts.

CONSTANTLY being confronted by
one disruptive member in the audience,
Sinclair, co-founder of the Great Lakes
Energy Alliance - an educational
program on nuclear energy - cited the
Fermi power plants as examples of
ineffective licensing.
Referring to Fermi I, Sinclair said,
"There is a difference between what
the applicant stated (concerning the
amount of radiation) and what actually
comes out."
Sinclair, who is a prime supporter of
legal proceedings to halt nuclear plant
construction, said there is a safety fac-
tor in Fermi II with the pressure sup-
pression system, "which is supposed to
be there, but doesn't function as it
DESCRIBING defective piping
systems, Sinclair said, "all the redun-
dant safety systems within nuclear
power plants are wired through one
room. ,If there is a fire, all the safety

systems are knocked."
Sinclair pointed out the money to
operate Fermi II had to be raised by
selling portions of the reactors to
municipalities and rural cooperatives.
Discussing the Midland plant, Sin-
clair said a number of buildings are
sinking because the soil specifications
were not followed. She added the
cooling pond it uses would cause great
steaming and fogging on the nearby
POINTING OUT the operating inef-
ficiency of power plants, Sinclair said
"There is a 37 per cent excess capacity,

and this is where the taxpayers' money
As an alternative, Sinclair proposed
the use of industrial steam base on a
competitive basis.
"The large industrial complex can
generate steam for their own use and
they can aslso produce additional elec-
Other alternatives Sinclair proposed
included the use of hydroelectric power
plants, the use .of wood and grain
wastes, solar heating and cooling, wind,
and garbage such as the recycling of
glass and cans to produce power.

MILWAUKFE, Wisconsin
(Reuter) - A federal judge yester-
day extended an order temporarily
banning a magazine from publishing
an article the U.S. government says
is a recipe for a hydrogen bomb.
Judge Robert Warren postponed
until March 26 a hearing originally
scheduled today on a government
motion for an injunction to ban the
article indefinitely.
filed statements with the court from
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance and
Defense Secretary Harold Brown
that publication of the article would
help other nations develop thermo-
nuclear weapons.
The judge last Friday imposed a
10-day restraining order on the
Madison, Wisconsin-based monthly
magazine Progressive fromprinting
the article after the government
contended it would irreparably
harm national security, undermine
nuclear non-proliferation, and
threaten world peace.

Yesterday he extended the order
until the hearing on March 26. A
court spokesman said the hearing
has been postponed because lawyers
for both the magazine and the
government had asked for more
time to prepare submissions.
VANCE SAID it was of the gravest
importance to the U.S. that as few
nations as possible develop thermo-
nuclear weapons.
"Time is a critical factor," he
said. "With sufficient time,
measured in decades, it may be
possible to prevent the spread of
nuclear explosive technology
through universal adherence to in-
ternational arrangements.
"But if this time is lost through the
dissemination of thermonuclear
weapons know-how, large numbers
of nations may ultimately be able to
produce these weapons."
The Progressive, which has a cir-
culation of about 40,000, has denied
the article is a blueprint for a
nuclear bomb.

Hutton, who allows his tenants to
change to an eight-month lease as late
as April 15, said that in most cases such
a lease is a better dealfor the tenants.
"Subletting is usually happening
around finals time, when students
decide that they just don't want to be
bothered with subletting,''said Hutton.
With an eight-month lease, the tenant
usually pays about 25 per cent more per
month than a tenant with a 12-month
lease. Under such an agreement, the
tenant would pay half of the four-month
spring-summer lease, and in most
cases, that is the best the tenant could
hope for if he or she were able to sublet.
