Kemp accuses Soviets
of cheating on treaty

The Michigan Daily-Wednesday, January 6, 1988- Page 7
Officials plan to restart
Fermi II nuclear plant

lican presidential aspirant Jack Kemp
accused the Soviet Union yesterday
of cheating on the treaty to ban in-
termediate-range nuclear missiles
"even before the ink is dry."
In a letter to Secretary of State
George Shultz, the New York rep-
resentative said the Soviets had sent
a forged photograph of the SS-20
missile to be outlawed under the
He also accused the Soviets of
providing inaccurate information
about the size and location of their
nuclear forces. A congressional
source, who demanded anonymity,
said the Soviets "during the last
month of negotiations gave us four
different numbers for the SS-20s
they had deployed."
Kemp said "these reported Soviet
actions are a direct affront and a
challenge to the declared arms con-
trol policy of President Reagan."
He urged Shultz to respond to the
" serious concerns" raised in the two-

page letter.
Kemp said the photograph turned
over to U.S. Ambassador Jack Mat-
lock in Moscow on Dec. 22
"indicated apparent major discrepan-
cies" with the SS-20 missile.
Kemp did not elaborate. But the
congressional source told the Asso-
ciated Press the Soviets either had
photographed a mockup of the mis-
sile or substituted a part from the
SS-16 or some other missile for the
third stage of the SS-20.
That is the stage that carries the
nuclear warhead.
He said the third stage depicted in
the photograph was too narrow to
carry three warheads of the size the
United States knows the SS-20 war-
heads are.
"The intelligence community is
in enormous consternation right
now," he said.
Reaganand General Secretary
Mikhail Gorbachev signed the treaty
last month at their Washington
summit. It was not clear whether

MONROE, Mich. (AP) - De-
troit Edison officials continued pre-
parations yesterday to restart the
Fermi II nuclear power plant as fed-
eral inspectors considered a request to
step up operations at the plant. De-
troit Edison officials said they
hoped to restart the idle plant later in
the week.
A decision by the Nuclear Regu-
latory Commission on a request by
Edison to test the plant at more than
75 per cent capacity also could come
this week, said Jan Strasma, an
NRC spokesperson in Chicago
Strasma said that in addition to
the agency's two resident inspectors
at the plant, two NRC inspectors
would tour the plant yesterday and
today to evaluate the request.

He said they would check the
condition of the plant, which was
shut down automatically last Thurs-
day when a power supply failed dur-
ing computer maintenance.
They were also checking other
items, including plant maintenance
programs and whether maintenance
backlogs exist.
The shutdown came after the
utility said it had completed testing
at less than 75 percent of capacity
and requested approval for testing at
higher power.
Power will gradually be raised to
90 percent. The Michigan Public
Service Commission requires 100
hours of operation at that level be-
fore the plant is considered to be in
commercial operation.
Until then, Detroit Edison, which

is paying about $46 million a
month in financing costs for the.
$4,575 project, cannot begin charg-
ing customers for it.
The plant received an operating
license in 1985, pending testing, but
has been plagued by equipment
problems and operating errors.
In 1987, an employee was fired
and four were disciplined after an
unexpected rise in reactor water tem-
perature during a June 26 shutdown.
The NRC fined the utility $75,000
for that incident.
A July 31 valve leak caused an
automatic shutdown. On Aug 2, the
reactor's cooling water level was ac-
cidentally lowered, and the -NRC
again raised questions about plant

Kemp's charges would affect pros-
pects for Senate approval.
The Foreign Relations Commit-
tee is scheduled to open hearings on
ratification in two weeks. Other
hearings will be held by the Senate
