S. will have to shut down to determine if there are cracks in their cooling systems, the Atomic En- ergy Commission said Saturday. An AEC spokesman said no safety hazard is involved. In another development, a nu clear safely specialist working with the AEC lias resigned his job because he says the publi docs not know the truth about "potentially dangerous" atomic power plants. Carl Ilocevar, 34. who worked at the AEC's Idaho safely re- search center, said in a tele- phone interview Saturday he re- signed "because 1 don't think the AEC is putting enough em- phasis on safely as it should be. Keactor Safety "I just had this frustrated feeling and Iliink I can do more for reader safely by joining with the safety ho said. In a letter of resignation lo AEC Chairman Dixy Lee Ray, Ilocevar said that "in spile of Ihe soothing reassurances that the AEC gives to an uninformed, misled public, unresolved, ques- tions about nuclear power plant safely are so grave that Ihe U.S. should consider a complete halt in nuclear power planl con- struction. The agency issued its order after delecting small cracks in auxiliary piping units of three reactors thai use boiling water as a coolant. Although there are 21 boiling water rcaclors in only if) or 16 have similar units the AEC spokesman said. He said operators of all 21 re- actors have been notified, bill that those without the suspecl unils will not be required to shul down.

Bicentennial Bus -G.izetlp photo by Duano Crock A familiar sight around Cedar Rapids since late July has been the "Spirit of 76" bus, painted to commemorate the nation's 200th birthday two years from now and to get people thinking about the celebration. Robert M. L. Johnson, project director for the Mid-America Bicentennial commission; says the bus is so familiar to folks many think more than one is decked out in red, white and blue. Actually, the bus simply follows a different route every day. As far as Johnson knows, the bus is not only the sole one in Cedar Rapids, it is the only one in Iowa. One of its features, shared by three others in the RTC fleet, is a hydraulic system that lowers the entire front of the bus eight inches so that getting on and off is easier.
