Reagan to speed weapon research

The Michigan Daily-Friday, March 25, 1983-Page 9
Three Mile Island

From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON - President Reagan
will order a speed up today in work on a
high-technology beam weapon to dest-
roy Soviet ballistic missiles before they
leave Soviet airspace, administration
officials and other sources said yester-
day.
The order, a directive to the Joint
Chiefs of Staff, will put into formal
language Reagan's decision announed
in a televised speech Wednesday to put
America on a course away from depen-
dence on nuclear retaliation toward a
seemingly more defensive posture with
a new generation of weapons.
SENIOR administration officials
acknowledged that President Reagan's
vision of a high-technology defense
against missile attack is an idea that

goes back 10 to 20 years, but they con-
tended he has made it a genuine
priority.
There was still no indication from the
administration on the ultimate cost of
the project - or the direction it might go
in a broad range of possible
technologies.
One senior official said it was "ab-
solutely impossible" to estimate the
eventual cost, at least until ad-
ministration officials had defined the
most promisingresearch approaches
designed to produce an impregnable
anti-missile defense by the end of the
century.
ACCORDING TO the officials,
Reagan probably would sign a directive
Friday setting that process in motion.
When asked whether the president's

plans could conflict with the 1972 treaty
strictly curbing ballistic missile defen-
ses, officials said the question probably
will not arise for another five to ten
years and there will be "ample time to
discuss this with the Soviets."
But the official Soviet news agency
Tass said "deployment of such systems
of anti-missile defense would be a
direct violation of the Soviet-American
treaty on anti-ballistic missiles and its
protocol."
It denounced Reagan's plans as "a
new attempt to achieve superiority in
strategic weapons over the Soviet
Union and to violate an approximate
balance of forces in the world."
Asked about the Soviet response,
Reagan replied, "I didn't expect them
to cheer."

Reagan
... pushes weapon build-up

engitneer si
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A
Bechtel Corp. engineer was suspended
yesterday after he complained to
federal officials that dangerous shor-
tcuts were being taken in the cleanup of
the crippled Three Mile Island nuclear
plant.
Richard Parks, a senior startup
engineer at the plant, said Bechtel and
the plant owner, General Public
Utilities Corp. wanted him "out of their
hair."
"THIS IS MORE proof they're con-
tinuing to harass and intimidate me,"
he said. "I don't want to be off the
island. They want me off . . ."
But chief startup engineer Richard
Wheeler said in the letter that the com-
pany wanted to "insulate" Parks from
any harassment and maintain the ef-
fectiveness of other employees.
"We . . . reject any notion of
retaliation in this," said Thomas Flynn,
a Bechtel spokesman at TMI. "It's
responsible and common sense under
the circumstances."
WHEELER SAID the company would
contact Parks 'within 30 days after
reviewing his charges. Although
Wheeler promised that Bechtel would
not take "any adverse personal action"
against Parks, the engineer said he ex-
pects he will be fired.
At a press conference yesterday in
Washington, Parks accused Bechtel

uspended0
and GPU of not properly testing a crane
that will be used to lift the top of tie
damaged reactor later this year.
Bechtel, a San Francisco-based
engineering and construction firm,
holds the prime contract for the1 $
billion cleanup of the nation's wor~t
nuclear power plant accident four
years ago. In that accident, a complex
chain of circumstances led to the
nuclear core being partially uncovered,
resulting in a release of some radioae-
tivity into the atmosphere.
AFTER RAISING his concerns with
superiors, Parks said, he was removed
from positions of responsibility. He said
he had been one of three operatig
engineers for the entire cleanup ad
alternate startup and test director fpr
Unit 2.
Parks also said Bechtel had in-
vestigated him for allegedly helping a
GPU employee with work for an outside
engineering company. Parks had
denied the allegation. He said the em-
ployee, Larry King, GPU director of
site operations, shared his safety con-
cerns and was fired Feb. 24. King's
secretary was also fired, Parks said.
"A lot of people are very afraid to ad-
dress issues against what management
wants to do," Parks said. "We're good
proof of why."

"I had my weapon, I know I did," he
said. "In those days, in those times, if
you had your pants on, you had your
weapon."
Rowe said he remembered driving
with Klansman Wilkins, Eugene
Thomas, and William Eaton. "I
remember us getting on a wide road,"
he said.
"THERE W A s a white woman
driving a car and a big black man sit-
ting next to her."
Rowe said Thomas began following
the car carring Liuzzo and the black
man, who was later identified by police
as LeRoy Moten. "Gene (Thomas)
said, 'Goddamn, they know we're after
them!" Rowe said, adding that
"Thomas got right up by her car and
turned his bright lights on."
"Wilkins said to me . . . take your
goddamned gun out," Rowe said. He
said Thomas then passed a gun and
some bullets back to him. But, Rowe
maintains that he only pretended to fire
the gun.
"WILKINS fired a shot," Rowe said.
"I don't care what the whole goddam-
ned world says, I saw it."
Rowe said Wilkins kept firing into the
car. "The second shot hit the woman in
the head," Rowe said.
"I didn't know what to do," he said.
"In my mind, I just wanted to tell them
to pull over."
ACCORDING to Rowe, however, the
man riding in the car with Liuzzo does
not fit Moten's description. "I saw a
male in his late 30's or early 40's,"
Rowe said, adding that the man was big
well-dressed and was wearing a black
hat with a red feather in it. Moten was
19 at the time of L'iuzzo's shooting.
"I've never said I saw LeRoy Moten in
that automobile," Rowe testified. "He
could've been in the vehicle, but not in

e tails killing
the front seat. LeRoy Moten was not the
man I saw in that automobile." Rowe
added that Thomas made an earlier
statement to the effect that he thought
he saw another head pop up in the Liuz-
zo car.
Rowe also denied informing former
FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover that Liuzzo
and the black man she was transporting
were "necking." "I never said that,"
Rowe said. He said he could not
remember telling anyone that Liuzzo
and the black man were having a
"necking party."
