The Michigan Daily-Tuesday, September 22, 1981 -Pag S
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate,
ending an all-male tradition nearly two
centuries old, unanimously confirmed
Sandra Day O'Connor as an associate
justice of the Supreme Court on yester-
O'Connor, a 51-year-old Arizona state
appeals judge, will be sworn in Friday
in time to join the court for the opening
of its 1981-82 term on Oct. 5.
"TODAY IS truly a historic oc-
casion," said Sen. Strom Thurmond,
(R-S.C.), chairman of the Senate
Judiciary Committee, leading off a
series of 22 speeches in warm praise of
President Reagan's first high court
As the vote neared, a small knot of
conservatives who had questioned
O'Connor's views on abortions fell into
line behind her nomination.. I
Jesse Helms, (R-N.C.), leader of the
most conservative bloc of Senate
Republicans, voted for O'Connor,
saying although she wouldn't say so,
publicly, he believes she opposes the
1973 high court decision legalizing most
HELMS SAID that on the day Reagan,
announced that O'Connor would be his
first Supreme Court nominee, he met
privately in the White House with the
president and was assured that O'Con-
nor shares Reagan's opposition to a
national policy of legalized abortions.
Sen. Joseph Biden of Delaware, the
senior Democrat on theJudiciary panel,
said however that it is fruitless and
risky to predict how any Supreme Court
nominee might vote once he or she is
"Once a justice dons those robes, en-
ters that inner sanctum across the road
in the Supreme Court building," Biden
said, "We have no control. All bets are
THE LATE President Dwight
Eisenhower nominated Earl Warren
believing he was a "mainstream
Republican," and he turned out to be
the most liberal chief justice 'ipn
Supreme Court history, Biden recalled.
Biden said O'Connor won such broad
support from conservatives and iberals
from both parties because she has
"superior intellect," strong moral
character and the right temperament
to be a judge.
"That's all I have a right to ask," said
Biden, criticizing conservatives who at-
tempted to make O'Connor's views on
abortion the sole criterion on whether
she should be confirmetl.
0'Connor will become the 102nd per-
son to don the black robes of a Supreme
Court member since the court was
created as one of three equal branches
of the federal government 191 years
A graduate of Stanford University
Law School, she worked as a state
prosecutor in Arizona before serving
terms in both houses of the state
A former majority leader of the
Arizona Senate, O'Connor served as a
state trial court judge and was later
named by . Gov. Bruce Babbitt to the
Arizona Court of Appeals.

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP)- Operators of the
Diablo Canyon atomic power plant got a federal go-
ahead to begin testing yesterday as protests aimed at
keeping workers from reaching the facility stretched
into a second week and arrests mounted to 1,328.

PG&E BEGAN checking its fuel and equipment
and said it might be days before loading could begin.
"We will start the process immediately," said PG&E
spokesman Dick Davin.
After the fuel is loaded, one of two units in the big
double-domed reactor will be switched on and the
nuclear chain reaction will begin for the first time at
the $2.3 billion seaside site. Initial tests will take the
reactor up to 5 percent of its capacity, Davin said.
Yesterday's' blockade got under way about 5:30
a.m. at the main gate, followed by a partial blockade
of Avila Road, which goes past the gate, as a mile-
long convoy of buses loaded with PG&E workers
rumbled in. Deputies used choke holds on demon-
strators to clear the path for the buses, but no injuries
LATER IN THE morning, 10 protesters who had
hiked in through the hills were arrested as they
blocked a dirt PG&E access road. The new arrests
brought the Diablo number near the 1,414 arrests that
occurred during a May Day 1977 demonstration at a
nuclear plant in Seabrook, N.H.
Among those arrested yesterday was a man
charged with carrying a loaded pistol and a 14-year-
old boy who had a note from his parents approving his
participation in the demonstration.
In granting the operating permit, the five NRC
commissioners said a more important decision on
allowing the plant to go to full power will not be made
until after further hearings are held over the next
THE COMMISSION'S action yesterday upheld a
recommendation by its Atomic Safety and Licensing
Board on July 17 that the plant should be given per-
mission to start low-power tests.
California Gov. Edmund Brown, a long time foe of
nuclear power, said the state will appeal to a federal
court to block licensing of the plant, built on a bluff
beside the Pacific midway between San Francisco
and Los Angeles.
Though he voted for the testing, Commissioner Vic-
tor Gilinsky said in a statement he believes there
were "serious flaws" in the licensing board's
COMMISSIONER Peter Bradford said he also wan-
ts answers to several questions-among them the
plant's ability to withstand a severe ear-
thquake-before voting on a full-power license.
