INFACT URGES NESTLE PROTEST

Dorms to vote on boycott

(Continued from Page 1)
of the formula to consumers and have
tightened control over free samples.
Shirley Powell of the Interfaith Council
for Peace which is the local base for the
INFACT movement, said these claims
have not been carried out completely.
The University Housing Division will
recognize student support of the boycott
if a majority of "yes" votes are cast.
Food Service will then eliminate Nestle
items from menus and purchase alter-
native brands.
THE UNIVERSITY currently uses
few Nestle products and a boycott
would have only minimal effects on
food service. A boycott "wouldn't be
noticed" by students eating in the dor-
ms according to Larry Pederson,
member of the local INFACT chapter.
If dormitory residents approve the
boycott, the University will join a
growing number of colleges and
universities supporting INFACT in-
cluding Harvard, Berkeley and Notre
Dame.
Pederson and dormitory represen-
tatives are optimistic that the referen-
dum will pass. "I think most people who
know what the issue is will vote for us,"
said Stacy Stephanopolis, a Mosher-
Jordan resident working on the cam-
paign.
Pederson met with each dormitory
house council and Norm Snustad,
associate director of housing, to coor-
dinate the effort in the residence halls.
Each dorm council independently ap-
,proved the referendum and represen-
tatives met to design the ballot for the
campuswide vote.
EACH OF THE 10 dorms that have
University food service decided in-
dependently which day or days between
April 9-11 to hold the referendum in
their cafeteria supper lines.
The local INFACT chapter has been
working with dormitory represen-

tatives to provide information on the
boycott for residents. Information
-tables have been set up at cafeteria
exits and stuffers have been put in
dorm mailboxes to inform residents of
the boycott and referendum.
The main impact of a boycott by the
University will be on public awareness
since the economic effect on Nestle
would be negligible, said Pederson. He
said he hopes that the word will spread

and more people will personally boycott
Nestle products.
The INFACT boycott has already
been endorsed by the Michigan Student
Assembly, Literary College Student
Government and the Intercooperative
Council on campus.
INFACT is urging the boycott of all
Nestle products which include Libby's
and Stouffer foods.

ABOUT 200 anti-nuclear demonstrators rally at Kennedy Square in Detroit yesterday.

A'ntE-nu.ke forces rallty in Detroit

By TIMOTHY YAGLE
Special to the Daily
DETROIT-"Stop nuclear power!"
was the battle cry of several speakers
who preached the hazards of atomic
energy at an hour-long rally at Detroit's
Kennedy Square yesterday.
The speakers told approximately 200
anti-nuclear demonstrators who braved
chilling temperatures and biting winds
that utility companies are monopolizing
control of energy sources and con-
tinuing to build dangerous nuclear

reactors.
UNITED STATES Senator Carl
Levin, who was scheduled to speak at
the rally, organized by the Detroit Safe
.Energy Coalition (SECO), did not at-
tend because he was in Washington,
D.C.
"Today we are joining the ranks of
the millions of people in this nation and
the world who know that nuclear power
is an iminent threat to the survival of
man and to all life on earth," said Mary
Sinclair, a member of the Great Lakes
Energy Alliancean area anti-nuclear
group.
Sinclair claimed that Michigan
nuclear power plants are not
economically feasible. "We know from
their escalating costs that the two
Midland plants and the Fermi II plants
are the most expensive power plants
ever built and . . will be a terrible
financial burden on the rate payers,"
she said.
SHE ALSO referred to an Atomic
Energy Commission (AEC) report con-
cerning cracked pipes at the Big Rock,
Michigan nuclear power plant in 1973,
explaining that "we have a pattern of
repeated and flagrant violations of a
non-routine character."
In addition to the problems of current
plant operations, Sinclair claimed the
growing number of nuclear plants have
caused added health risks to state
residents.
"Our legislature has banned the
dumping of nuclear wastes in the state,
but we must halt further production of
nuclear plants," she proclaimed. We

must continue these demonstrations
until our legislature and Congress
declare a moratorium on nuclear power
and begin to phase out existing
dangerous plants."
" THESE KINDS of acts (rallies)
have to be translated into pressure on
legislators," said State Senator
Douglas Ross. "We want a halt now to
any nuclear development in Michigan.
This, despite the cold and the wind, is
the easiest part of our job." Ross also
stressed, as did other speakers, the im-
portance of disseminating anti-nuclear
information.
"It's not a scientific and
technological issue," Ross said. "It's a
political and moral issue."
SECO's Dan Marshall protested what
he called prematuresrate hikes by
Detroit Edison. Marshall said the
utility was basing current rates on an
anticipated heavy demand for elec-
tricity this summer.
IE ADDED that the major portion of
plant construction is being based on air
conditioning loads. "That's not
necessary," Marshall claimed. "We
have to get people to stop wasting
energy."
Ron Wilson of the Public Interest
Research Group In Michigan (PIRGIM)
said, "Three Mile Island has opened up
a Pandora's Box for finding nuclear
disasters. Who's going to pay for these
accidents. You and I are. The future
must be made safe for our children. We
hve to spend massive funds on alter-
native forms of energy like we did for
the moon shot." But, he said, "conser-
vation is the cheapest way out."
