encourage
"new nuke
plant ban
at hearing

By MITCH STUART
Special to The Daily
DETROIT - Support for a five-year moratorium
on new nuclear power plants was nearly unanimous
yesterday at.a public hearing on a state House bill
that would mandate a ban on construction of the plan-
ts.
Only two of the more than 15 people who testified in
Detroit's City-County Building before the House's
Committee on Public Health, voiced opposition to the
bill.
State Rep. Lynn Jondahl, sponsor of the bill, ex-
plained why he feels it is necessary. "There are many
questions about nuclear power that we haven't an-
9wered. Let's stop until we do have answers," he
said.
JONDAHL SAID he supports smaller community-
based power generation as opposed to centralized

systems. He cited the Fermi II plant now under con-
struction as a prime example of centralized plant
that is captial-intensive rather than labor-intensive in
its operation. There are five people needed to run
Fermi II, Jondahl said, three of whom are
secretaries.
House bill 4528 has the following major provisions:
* A five-year moratorium on the construction of
nuclear fission power plants in Michigan;
* A "certificate of reliability" would have to be ob-
tained from the Department of Public Health before
construction could be started or continued;
* Relatively harsh standards would have to be met
before a certificate could be obtained; and
* All certificates would have to be approved by the
state House and Senate.
LSA JUNIOR Beverly Johnson testified at the
hearing that she was concerned about the limited

liability of power companies.
The Price-Anderson act limits utilities' liability to
$560 million, but, she said, the old Atomic Energy
Commission estimated that damage from a nuclear
plant accident could go as high as $17 billion.
"Why can't the utility companies get full
coverage," she asked. "Do the insurance companies
know something the public doesn't?"
A spokesperson for Public Interest Research Group
in Michigan (PIRGIM) also read a statement of sup-
port for the bill.
Wayne Denz, a Detroit Edison vice-president,
spoke against the bill. "Safety is a very serious mat-
ter to both Detroit Edison and the NRC (Nuclear
Regulatory Commission)," he said.
Jim Murphy, President of the University's Public
Health Student Association read a resolution from the
Association "strongly supporting House bill 4528."

Williams Jr., (D-N.J.), and Reps. John
Murphy (D-N.Y.), Frank Thompson Jr.

Most of the eight members of
Congress have issued statements
denying any wrongdoing. The others
have not commented on their guilt. or
innocence.
The House ethics committee quickly
called a meeting to begin its probe after
disclosure that FBI agents posed as
aides to a wealthy Arab sheik who was
willing to pay bribes to congressmen
and other officials, in exchange for
political favors. Sources say some of-
ficials were photographed with video-
tape equipment in the act of taking
?money.
MEANWHILE, Justice Department
spokesman Robert Smith announced a
separate investigation into how the
story was leaked to the news media.
0 "The disclosures by the media are
regrettable because they may injure
the reputation of innocent people,"
Smith said. He said the Office of
Professiqnal Responsibility, which
polices the conduct of Justice Depar-
tment and FBI employees, "will
initiate an intensive investigation to see
whether deliberate disclosures have

been made by federal employees."
Sources said the probe began as an
FBI "sting" operation in which agents
posed as fences willing to purchase
stolen art, stocks and bonds.
Congressional leaders fear the scan-
dal may do more to harm Congress as
an institution than the Korean payoff
scandals or Watergate.

member of the National Guard body
detail, helped take 22 bodies to
Bernalillo County Medical Center in
Albuquerque on Sunday, night. He said
one of the dead prisoners had a rod
stuck through his head.
"THERE WAS A rod stuck into one of
the prisoner's ears, forced through his
head, and through the other side. He
still had it in when we took the body
out," Ortiz said.
Ortiz said many of the dead had been
tortured.
"One of them still had a rope around
his neck and then they smashed his
head in," Ortiz said. "It was horrible."
MARGARET BABCOK, a prison
secretary, said she was looking through
binoculars from a prison fence when
she saw one inmate being tortured with.
a blowtorch near a cellblock.
"Four or five men were holding one
man down and burning his head and
face with a torch," she said. "He was
screaming. I couldn't believe it. It was
like a nightmare."
Guard} Fred Herrera said, "Some of
the guys' (inmates') faces are totally
gone." State Sen. Ben Altamirano said
he saw the body of a black inmate who
had been decpaitated and his head
stuffed between his legs. Guards said
- another inmate had his arm cut off
before he was hurled from an upper
window.

REPORTERS PERMITTED to tour
part of the devastated prison followed
the warden past about 70 prisoners,
some of them barefoot, being held in a
15-foot-wide fence and barbed wire
outside corridor dubbed "no-man's
land."
The inmates, who had managed to
escape the carnage and surrendered to
authorities, slept on the ground
Saturday and Sunday nights with only
blankets for warmth in sub-freezing
temperatures.
At least 80 per cent of the prison's
structure was destroyed, according to
Adolph Saenz, newly appointed
secretary of the state's Criminal
Justice Department.
State officials said it might cost as
much as $50 million to replace the
state's only maximum security prison.
