LANSING (UPI)- Recent reports by
two state agencies of reduced PCB con-

The commission, embroiling itself in
yet another dispute with the state agen-

TO PROPERLY draw their con-
clusions, the state departments really
needed samples from six times as
many fish as were tested, the com-

director said during a news conference.
They also called for the adoption of

greater sample of fish from all over the

taken before those conclusions were

Study says military costs

WASHINGTON (AP) - More than $1
million a minute is being spent world-
wide on the. military, with nuclear
stockpiles exceeding 50,000 weapons,
according to a study by a coalition of
arms control groups.
The study, "World Military and
Social Expenditures, 1982," charges
that nuclear and conventional arms
races have wasted resources without
enhancing international security.
International nuclear stockpiles have
mushroomed to represent the
equivalent of 3.5 tons of TNT for every

more than 1 million times the explosive
power of the Hiroshima bomb, the

Record bids anticipated from Alaskan oil lease sale


WASHINGTON (AP)- An icy stretch of water
above Alaska named Diapir Field may hold the
biggest reserves of oil and gas found in the
United States in 14 years.
The oil industry is gearing up for the 1.8
million-acre lease sale this week, which could
bring in a record $3 billion in bids.
MANY OIL company officials believe the lease
sale tomorrow in Anchorage, Alaska, may be the
most lucrative of the 41 sales to be offered in In-
terior Secretary James Watt's leasing program.
Watt, who has been attacked for the ambitious
program offering virtually the entire U.S.
,coastline for drilling over the next five years, is
hoping the success of the sale will silence critics.
"What we need is a big one-something that
will show that the oil industry wants this land,"

Watt has said.
THE DIAPIR Field, named for the type of
geological formation, lies at the top of Alaska
just offshore from the Prudhoe Bay field, the
1968 discovery that accounts for 18 percent of
domestic oil production.
Diapir's proximity to the Prudhoe field and its
transportation system-the Alaska oil
pipeline-is the reason the oil industry is excited.
The Interior Department puts the chance of
finding commercial quantities of oil and gas at
99.3 percent. It estimates that Diapir holds 2.4
billion barrels of oil and 1.8 trillion cubic feet of
"This is the crown jewel of the leasing
program. Right now it is the most promising
area we want to get into," said Charles Mat-

thews, president of the National Ocean In-
dustries Association, which represents almost
500 companies involved in offshore exploration
and drilling.
MATTHEWS said the bids could reach "bet-
ween $2 billion and $3 billion." That could make
Diapir the most successful lease sale in the 28-
year history of the federal program, surpassing
a 1980 Gulf of Mexico sale which brought the
government $2.7 billion.
Interior Department officials are not that op-
timistic. Watt has said that if the sale exceeds $1
billion it will be a tremendous success. Officials
point to the harsh Arctic drilling conditions as
one reason the bids could be held down.
The sale has been challenged in court by native
Alaskans living on the North Slope. Previously,

"accidents" nearly sent American
missiles on an unretrievable path
toward the Soviet Union, he said. "A
faulty computer chip held creation
hostage," he said.
In spite of President Reagan's asser-
tion that the United States has fallen
behind the Soviets in nuclear weaponry,
Hatfield insisted there is a "rough
equivalency among arsenals."
"Somehow we get into these number
games," he said. "I think we have
found a certain eroticism and
fascination with nuclear weapons. We
have reached the point of mutual
overkill. How much is enough?"
HATFIELD compared the nuclear
arms race with two men standing waist
high in gasoline, holding matches.
"One guy has eight matches and the
other has nine and someone is trying to
tell them that they need 15 or 16," he
Hatfield also said he had sponsored a
bill in the Senate that would allow tax-
payers to stipulate that their tax money
could not go to the Pentagon.
