Oswego Seminar Nuclear Plants Safe, Expert Asserts Nuclear power generating plants are totally safe, and badly needed to prevent a future power crisis, several speakers told members of the press Friday at a briefing on nuclear power. They're safe,\ Dr. Curtis G. Chezem, a nuclear engineer said, referring to nuclear plants. \I'll stand on that. I stand before God condemned if I'm wrong.\ Chezem was one of six speakers at the briefing, which was co-spohsored by the Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation, the Power Authority of the State of New York and the Atomic Industrial Forum. The session, held at Oswego, was at- tended by more than 100 members of the press from Northern and Central New York and members of the sponoSring organizations and environmental •groups. Chezem is head of the Department of Nuclear Engineering at Kansas State University and was formerly associated with the Atomic Energy Commission, having worked 15 years at the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory. \No other- industry,\ he declared, \has had such a long heritage of safety and moral conscience.\ He said that so many safety devices and 'fail-safe' systems had been built into nuclear plants, \that you wouldn't believe it.\ Discussing the contention by some that systems would fail, he continued, \I cannot conceive of that happening.\ Breeder Reactors Safe? . Are nuclear breeder reactors like the one which may be located in the Wad- dington area safe? \It's hard to give a technical answer,\ Dr. Morton I. Goldman, vice president and general manager of the Environ- mental Safeguards Division of NUS . Corporation said. There is no special breeder reactor of any one plant where comparisons could be made, he contended. But, he said, \If the same quality regulations are applied to breeder reactors as are applied to light water plants, then they will be as safe as any of the other plants.\ In a detailed report covering the environmental effects of nuclear plants as they are reflected by thermal discharges, land use and waste disposal, Dr. Morton Goldman said: \Operating experience has indicated that the radioactivity release from these plants has been and can be limited to a very small fraction of presently accepted standards.\ As for wastes, Dr. Goldman said \that in the nuclear industry \there was no such thing as disposal. You handle them.\ \It is,\ he pointed out, \the usual practice to design waste handling systems which are capable of managing quantities of radioactivity and volumes of gas and water which are much greater than those expected to be seen in the lifetime of the plant.\ \In view of the unfortunate way in which nuclear energy was introduced into the world,\ he said, \it is perhaps not surprising that the nuclear power industry is the only one in the history of the world in which the regulations for control and standards preceded the establishment of the industry and before the creation of an environmental problem.\ \For example,\ he added, \it is only now that the standards and criteria are being established for pollution resulting from the burning of fossil fuels in all applications, many years after the problem was recognized.\ \No Radiation Dangers\ Another speaker, Dr. Leonard A. Sagan, told the group miclear plants posed no radiation dangers to people living near them. He claimed all persons, regardless of their nearness to a nuclear plant, receive 150 times as much radiation from the natural environment as would a person standing next to a plant, Open House Set For Next Sunday At Mater Dei The Administration! at Mater Dei College is planning an open house for prospective students, their parents, and friends to be held Nov. 14 from 1-4 p.m. Tours of the college the library, and dormitories and ample opportunity to get acquainted with the administrative staff, the faculty, and students who will be on hand to answer any questions, will be provided. Refreshments will be served. Any student interested in taking ad- vantage of this opportunity to learn more about Mater Dei College should write to Director of Admissions, Mater Dei College, Ogdensburg, N.Y. 13669. In the Service FT. KNOWX, Ky. — Army Private Steven M. Kirby, 18, son of Mr. and Mrs. Spencer M. Kirby, Route 3, Ogdensburg, N.Y., recently was graduated from the Clerical School at the U.S. Army Armor Center, Ft. Knox, Ky. During the course, students receive instruction in typing, filing and how to perform administrative duties in a military office. without moving, for a full year. Referring to genetics, he said no radiation-induced mutations had been identified todate, and that alcohol and coffee affect the genes more than exposure the normal low amounts of radiation. Sagan is associate director of the Department of Environmental Medicine at the Palto Alto Medical Clinic, and a former medical chief for the Atomic Energy Commission. Abraham Gerber, vice-president of the National Economics Research Associates, Inc., said the nation faced an \energy crisis,\ and' that fossil fuel power plants could never produce enough energy to meet project needs. Nuclear power plants would offer a partial solution, he said, but en- vironmental problems with the plants, such as thermal pollution and radioactive gaseous emissions, would have to be overcome quickly. ' '' \Satisfactory resolution of the en- vironmental questions now impairing nuclear power growth are needed if nuclear power is to contribute to our energy resources as rapidly and as effectively as developments in the nation's fossil fuel supplies seem to require,\ he said. Other speakers included Paul Turner, Director of Public Affairs and Infor- mation for the Atomic Industrial Forum; and George L. Gleason, Legal Projects Manager of the Atomic Industrial Forum. Dr. Albert E. French, president of Canton ATC, and Dean Kenneth Baker, vice-president of i St. Lawrence University, attended the session. Local Authority To Help Refloat Chinese Vessel The Ogdensburg Bridge & Port Authority has contracted with the Murphy Pacific Marine Salvage Company to assist in refloating the Chinese vessel SINGAPORE TRADER which went hard aground near Clayton Oct. 15. Members of Local 217 A of the International Longshoremen's Association, under the direction of President Carroll Gushlaw, will discharge approximately 1100 tons of ship's cargo into barges in an attempt to refloat the ship. The barges will then be towed to the new Port Authority Ter- minal where the cargoes of artificial flowers, Christmas decorations and ping pong paddles will be placed in tem- porary storage. The operation is ex- pected to commence at Clayton on Tuesday. If this phase of the operation is successful and the vessel can safely be moved, the ship will be brought to Ogdensburg to complete discharging at the Port Authority pier. The Port Authority also announced that two ships are scheduled to arrive this, week to unload. The M. S. Cacique Yanquetruz will unload 1,000 tons of refrigerated chestnuts and garlic and the S. S. Sovereign Crystal will discharge 550 tons of baler twine. •Unloading operations at the Port Authority Terminal are expected to commence on Wednesday and extend through Saturday. The several activities will require the assistance and cooperation of area residents to ef^ ficiently and expeditiously handle the cargoes to he received. All union per- sonnel have been asked to be on hand. Area residents interested in working at the terminal have been asked to call the Port Authority for further information (393-4080), or stop at the Bridge Plaza Administration building to complete employment application forms prior to vessel arrival.
