MILK PLAN ENDORSED

Reagan victorious

WASHINGTON (AP)-The Senate Agriculture Committee
handed President Reagan his first budget-cutting victory
yesterday by endorsing his call for eliminating the scheduled
April 1 increase in milk price supports.
Eliminating the semi-annual adjustment would save the
government an estimated $147 million this fiscal year. If the
increase were implemented, consumers likely would have
had to pay 7% cents more for a gallon of milk and a dime
more for a pound of butter or cheese.
THE COMMITTEE'S 14-2 vote sent the proposal to the full
Senate for action. The measure has been introduced in the
House but no hearings have yet been held.
After the vote, White House press secretary James Brady
said the president was "gratified our package moves for-
ward."
To maintain the support prices, the government buys but-
ter, cheese and powdered milk at rates which allow the
processor enough profit to pay the farmer at least the sup-

port-level price for the raw product.
RAISING THE PRICE supports would translate into an in-
crease at the retail level of 7% cents for regular milk, about a
dime more for a pound of butter and a pound of cheese, and
an extra 51/2 cents for a pound of non-fat dry milk, said Indulis
Kancitis, chief of the dairy branch of the Agriculture Depar-
tment.
Republicans on the Agriculture Committee urged approval
of the measure eliminating the price support increase as a
way to show the American people Congress intends to work to
solve the nation's economic ills.
But some senators expressed concern that farmers were
the target of the first budget-cutting proposal to come to- a
vote in Congress.
Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), who voted against the
measure, said he felt it "does break a promise to all dairy
farmers ... It shows we're going to change the rules in the
middle of the game."

son is Soviet First Deputy Minister of
Foreign Trade.
HE WAS NAMED A candiate, or npn-
voting member of the Central Commit-
tee, along with his brother-in-law Yuri.
Churbanov, who is married to the
Soviet president's daughter, Galina.
Churbanov is first deputy of the
Soviet Interior Ministry, which is
responsible for public order and con-
trols the regular police force.
Two of Brezhnev's closest aides, An-
drei Alexandrov-Agentov and A.I.
Blatov moved up as well. Alexandrov-
Agentov, a specialist in American af-
fairs and arms control, became a
full member of the committee.
BLATOV, WHO DEALS with Soviet
relations with non-communist coun-
tries, was elected to candidate mem-
bership.
Semen Tsvigun, 63, first deputy
chairman for State Security, better
known as the KGB, became a full com-
mittee member. He is known as a
Brezhnev protege and would be a
natural choice to succeed Yuri An-
dropov to head the secret police.

Foreign Ministrer Andrei Gromyko's
first deputy, Georgy Kornienko, also
moved up to full committee member-
ship.
Another rising star is believed to be
Vladimir Govorov, commander of the
Moscow military district and a possible
future defense minister. He was elected
a full committee member, while Gen.
Pyotr Lushev, commander of the Cen-
tral Asian military district and another
name to watch, became a candidate
member.
President William McKinley was shot
Sept. .6, 1901, by Leon Czolgosz, an
anarchist, and died eight days later;
Little is known about the assassin
because he was soon executed after a
speedy trial.

F 'division

WASHINGTON (AP-Just when Soviet bloc intelligence
agents are stepping up their efforts to learn about the new
Reagan administration, the FBI field office here has put 15
percent more men into counterintelligence work, a bureau
official said yesterday.
Theodore Gardner, special agent in charge of the FBI's
Washington field office, said the increase in manpower was
designed "to increase our long-range analytical capability
and training.",
GARDNER DECLINED to say exactly how many agents
the local office has tracking foreign spies, but he said the
number was increased by about 15 percent late last year.
The added manpower was the result of an assessment that
Gardner began when he vas transferred here at the begin-
ning of October 1980.

IN A RECENT interview, Edward O'Malley, assistant FBI
director in charge of the intelligence division, said that
analytical and training resources were being upgraded
throughout the bureau's intelligence division and par-
ticularly in Washington and New York, the most active
bureau offices in foreign counterintelligence.
O'Malley said the bureau was hiring more professional in-
telligence officer§ from other U.S. agencies than before. He
added that in the past some had been hired as agents, "but
now they are also being hired as professional analysts."
In training programs, O'Malley said, "We're making
greater use than ever before of experts from elsewhere in the
intelligence community and of academic experts on the
Soviet Union and Eastern Europe."

Power, said many people fear
nuclear reactors because of the
possible radiation exposure. Sin-
derman admitted there was a
danger of overexposure to radiation,
but said the chances of that occuring
were small.
On the average, Sinderman said,
most workers in nuclear power plan-
ts are exposed to one-half rem (a
measure of radiation) per year. An
individual can be exposed to five
rems per year without effect, he
said.
SPeople are exposed daily to
radiation from the sun, medical x-
rays, jet plane travel, and television
viewing.- Sinderman said the
average American is exposed to ap-
proximately 150 millirems annually.
Another issue the nuclear power
company officials explained was the
safety of transporting nuclear
waste. Most high-level radiation
waste is transported to waste areas
in 25 ton casks via trucks, Sinder-
man said. A film was shown demon-
strating tests of the durability of the
steel casks. In one such test, a flat-
bed truck containing a cask was sent
into a concrete wall at a speed of 80
~.mph. Although the truck was com-

pletely smashed, the cask remained
intact.
The Ford Nuclear Reactor,
located on the North Campus,
operates at a maximum power level
of two megawatts. This is small
compared to commercial reactors
which generate 3,000 megawatts.
The reactor is owned and run by the
University and has been in operation
since 1957.

The reactor is used for the in-
vestigation of radiation effects on
biological and physical systems, the
relation of nuclear energy with the
environment, and the use of radioac-
tive elements in medical areas.
Gary Cook, assistant reactor
manager, said the reactor is used
strictly for research and teaching
purposes and does not produce elec-
tricity.
