WASHINGTON (AP) - The Pen-
tagon said yesterday there is a 2 per-
cent chance that debris from a disabled
nuclear-powered Soviet spy satellite
will hit the United States after entering
the atmosphere some time between
early Sunday and Monday afternoon.
Spokesman Henry Catto told repor-
ters that experts have predicted the re-
entry of the satellite, which carried a
nuclear reactor into orbit, some time
between 1 a.m. EST Sunday and 3 p.m.
HOWEVER, SPACE experts said the
Cosmos 1402, which has been tumbling
toward earth at an ever-increasing
rate, may plunge into the atmosphere
late Sunday night.
"We can't predict where, with any
certainty, until just at the last before it
comes in," Catto said when asked to
forecastnwhere the satellite's debris
will reach the earth's surface. The
Federal Emergency Management
Agency said there likely would be no
more than a "45- to 50-minute warning
of where the affected area might be."
Catto said there is a 70 percent chan-
ce the Cosmos debris will come down
over water, 15 percent chance over the
Soviet Union, 3 percent chance over
Canada, and 2 percent chance over the
Defense officials acknowledged for
the first time later yesterday that they
are not certain the 8,000-pound bulk of
the satellite still contains the nuclear
core of about 100 pounds of uranium.
They noted that the Soviet Union has
claimed it ejected the fuel core by
remote control, and that the Soviets
have said that that core is traveling
separately and will fall into the at-
mosphere and burn up in February.
"We haven't determined if that is
so," said one official who discussed the
question only on condition he not be
identified. "We hope it is."

When asked how she differed from
her opponent, Morris pointed to her six
years of experience on City Council and
her dedication to citizen input into
"Authority is in the City Council, not
the mayor. "I want to lower the profile
of the mayor," Morris said.
If elected Morris would become the
first female mayor in Ann Arbor's
history. "I do want to make a little
history," she said.
BLESSING stressed his experience in
various levels of govenment, including
state and county positions. Although he
feels citizens input is important,
Blessing emphasized the need for long-
range planning. "I do believe I have an
overview of how city government fits

the audience, made up mostly of
Democrats, seemed pleased with the
outcome of the debate. "I was glad it
was run in a way that both the can-

were revealed," said Ann Arbor
resident Barbara Murphy.
The contest between Morris and
Blessing is the only race to be decided
in the Feb. 21 primary election. The
winner will face-off against Belcher,

Republican primary, in the April 4
