Soviet 'Pilot
tells secret
HAMBURG, W e s t Germany
(P)-A Soviet pilot who defected
to the United States has told of.
the Russians building phony air
bases to fool satellite surveil-
lance while they put the real
ones underground, Stern maga-
tine reported yesterday.
Lt. Viktor Belenko, who flew
his MIG25 to Japan last Sep-
tember, was also quoted as tell-
ing U.S. intelligence interroga-
tors that Soviet military author-
ities are plagued by severe
troop morale problems which
have led to numerous suicides.I
Stern said its information:
came from a U.S. Central Intel-
ligence Agency report on Belen
ko and qouted him as sayingf

tnat s-called "^old belts" are
buried in the ground above the
hidden bases to screen them
from infrared cameras which
can detect heat from troops and
equipment. The bases, housing
thousands of men are linked to
runways by tunnels as much as
30 miles long. Stern said.
Coupled with the underground
installations are fake air bases
above ground with empty build-
ings and mock planes, designed
to mislead Western intelligence,
Stern said. It added that since
Belenko revealed the existence
of the fake bases, 134 of them
have been identified in Siberia
by Pentagon experts, most of
them near the Chinese border.
The pilot reportedly told the
CIA that every two months 12
members of his unit were flown
to temporary duty at one of the
decoy air bases to move the air-
craft mockups around and sim-
ulate activity to fool Chinese air

Belenko defected to Japan last;
Sept. 6, providing Western in-
telligence officials with their
first close look at the advanced
supersonic MIG25.
In questioning by the CIA,
Belenko revealed 4,000 Soviet
military secrets that will re-
quire the North Atlantic Treaty
Organization to make major
changes in Western air defense
strategy. the magazine claimed.
"Details included sizes of
flight squadrons, positions of'
underground missiles, command
centers and atomic bomb de-
pots, sites of attack and alarm
aircraft and secret codes from
Belenko's squadron," the maga-1
zinc said.-

He said his ordeal included a

Amin's feared security service,
a late night ride to a deserted
alley in Kampala accompanied
by there plainclothesmen carry-
ing submachine guns and being
woken in his cell by "drunken
soldiers wanting to beat up
some prisoners."
Schwartz said t h e r e were
other tourists in detention with
him in Kampala. He said as far
as he knows they are not Amer-
icans, but refused to identify
them for fear of "jeopardizing

LANSING (UPI) - Althoug
the state Natural Resource
Commission already has move
to ban phosphates from laund
detergents, an effort to write
law accomplishing the same end
may face strong opposition.
Several members of the House
Conservation Committee, which
is considering phosphate ban
legislation, said yesterday the
believe such a bill will eventual
ly be approved by .that panel.
But one source familiar wit
the panel said there may be n
more than three firm "yes'
votes on the committee at thi
point. There reportedly is som
skepticism among some com
mittee members that non-phos
phate detergents will be accept
able to consumers.
Phosphates, which are adde
to detergent as a cleaning agent
tend to destroy lakes becaus
they promote the growth o
algae and other nuisance plant
which harm water quality and
detract from the lakes' genera
attractiveness for recreation.
Three states and several cities
have banned phosphates,- and
Michigan has a law limiting the
phosphate content of laundry
detergent to 8.7 per cent.
Using its power to write rules
implementing that law, the re-
sources commissionvoted last
month to eliminate phosphates
entirely. That aciton is likely to
be challenged in court, how-
ever.

Murder rate
drops
DETROIT (UPI)-The city's
declining homicide rate has
reached a nadir that threatens
to reinstate its "Motor City"
nickname instead of the more
recent "Murder City" title.
Police officials said yesterday
that 37 killings were reported
in February, the lowest monthly
total in seven years. The city
has 88 murders so far this year,
21 fewer than at this time i
1976.
Officers said they aren't sure
exactly what caused the de-
crease or if the totals show a
long range trend or a temparary
111. But they are encouraged
when they look at bloody 1974,
when monthly murder reports
often exceeded80 and made the
area more famous for killing
than cars.
Police officials said various
new programs instituted in the
Ast six months might have a
