Soviets plan to
expand nuclear
energy capacity

NEW YORK (AP)- The Soviet Union
is planning a ten-fold increase in its
nuclear power capacity by the year
2000, using both heat and electricity
from the reactors in a way that will
double their efficiency, an American
physicist says.
The increase will make more Soviet
gas and oil available for export to
Western Europe, says William Davey
of the Los Alamos National Laboratory
in New Mexico.
AGREEMENT was reached in late
1981, over the objections of the United
States, to build a natural gas pipeline
from the Soviet Union to Western
Europe. Last month, President Reagan
refused to easea ban on U.S. sales of oil
and gas equipment to the Soviet Union
and he extended the sanctions to
foreign subsidiaries and licensees of

U.S. companies.
The Soviet war drive for more
nuclear power means that even if anti-
nuclear sentiment prevails in' Western
nations, nuclear power will remain an
important source of energy on a global
scale, Davey said.
Davey made his assessment of the
Soviet nuclear power program in a
recently released Los Alamos report,
"Nuclear Power in the Soviet Bloc."
The report is part of a larger study,
"Soviet Energy and Western Security,"
written under the direction of Robert
Pendley of Los Alamos.
DAVEY'S estimate of a ten-fold in-
crease in Soviet nuclear power during
the next 20 years is conservative, he
says, because it makes no allowance for
the use of fast-breeder reactors, which
could speed growth of the Soviet
nuclear program even more.

The weather
A portable sir conditioner would be a handy item today, Highs will be in
the upper 80s with humidity adding to the general discomfort. E
Back to work
A FTER A SHORT break to celebrate the end of spring term, the Fourth
of July, and the lunar eclipse, the Daily resumes publication today.
Throughout the long, hot Ann Arbor summer, the Daily will appear during
its regular Tuesday through Saturday schedule.
Lunar follies
N O WEREWOLVES were spotted, but yesterday morning's total eclipse
of the moon did provoke some strange doings on campus. The eclipse,
which started at 1:33 a.m., was celebrated in a variety of ways. The Low-
Brow, a group of amateur stargazers, observed the eclipse from the roof of
Angell Hall. The Ann Arbor police station even received some phone calls
from residents worried about the orb's temporary shutdown. And the eclipse
brought out the beast in one man, who was spotted running naked across
Greenwood St. at East University. For those of you who were otherwise oc-
cupied, another opportunity for moon gazing will come during a December
CFT- Rebecca, 4,7 & 9:15p.m., Michigan Theater.

Frye gives partial support
to MSA reallocation plan

(Continued from Page 1)
have another committee; we have the
Budget Priorities Committee (BPC)"
to perform the function of the MSA
group, Frye said. "The BPC serves that
role adequately."
"I'M VERY much in favor of this
proposal," hecontinued. "Now it's just
a matter of how to carry out what we
want to do."
Frye said he likes the idea of
discussion forums, but questioned
whether or not they will be attended by
enough people. He cited the forum held
in April for the Rackham School of
Graduate Studies, noting that atten-
dance was very low, even though it was
well publicized.
MSA president Amy Moore pointed
out, however, that there were reasons
for the low turnout at the Graduate
School forum. "That (the forum) con-
flicted with two other major events, the
militarism teach-in and the 'Take Back
the Night' march," she said.
"Also, they didn't have a great deal of
insight into how to run such a thing. It
was a tremendous effort, but we have
more power to make a thing like this
happen." '
disagreement with the third part of the
plan, Moeller said, "I get the im-
pression that he (Frye) didn't quite un-
derstand. What we had in mind was a
meeting with Vice President Frye's
staff, plus two students and two
faculty." The students and faculty
would be taken from the BPC,according
to the proposal.
Moeller said that a similar commit-
tee was already in existence for the
review selections, except that it had
only one student member, Moeller him-
"The most important thing we wan-
ted to stress is student involvement in
the reallocationprocess," Moore said.

She also said it was important to work
with the administration, not just
organize rallies and marches to show
"WE HAVE to be careful not to an-
tagonize, but we don't want to miss a
mass, visible demonstration," she said,
citing the April 15 Regents protest as an
example of the latter. "We have to be
reasonable and understand their
system, and get around it."
Moeller said that defining terms is
one of the crucial parts of the process.
"There is a pervasive fear that 'high
priority' and an 'improved research
environment' mean things like the
robotics institute," he said, "and until
defined, the door is left open for them to
do whatever they want."
A copy of the proposal was sent also
to Senate Advisory Committee on
University Affairs (SACUA) Chairman
Ronald Bishop, who said the proposal
"has merit," although he added it was
"not much different than what Vice
President Frye is trying to do." Bishop
also said that student involvement is
key, but that "I think he (Frye) gives a
little higher responsibility to faculty."
"We do want input from everybody,"
Bishop said.
BOTH MOELLER and Moore said
they think the timing of the proposed
plan is good. "For the first time, in-
stead of waiting for something to hap-
pen, we're acting now," Moeller said.
"This won't be like geography where
people only started doing things after
the deparmentwas cut. Then it was too
late," Moore added.
The two were pleased with the
response from Frye's office, and
Moeller was confident that the plan will
be adopted, at least in part. "Chances
are pretty good that it will be im-
plemented," he said. "The forum may
not go as I had planned it, but there will
bea forum."
