Reactor- (Continued from Page 1.) use techniques developed by the department of defense and the space program in the last 10 years to assess weapons and spacecraft performance. Various Chains Called fault tree and event tree analysis, the "methods involve using computers to predict the probabilities that various chaims of events nec- essary to cause an accident could happen. For example, he found the chances of a re- actor accident killing people were the same as a me- teor hitting the earth and kill- ing The Union of Concerned Sci- entists and Sierra Club report didn't dispute the contention that major reactor accidents are less probably than other typical human activities. But they said the level of safety claimed in the Ras- mussen study is much less than actually exists. Kendall said the AEC claims it knows of everything that can go wrong with a power plant reactor, and this is "demonstrably 'Numbers of quite serious design errors are frequently discovered at the country's nuclear power Ken- dall said. Kendall said the Rasmussen analysis estimated that a cer- tain type of breakdown had a probability of one in a million, times a million, times a mil- lion. Yet, Kendall said, that breakdown has occurred once already and similar, though nol identical, incidents have occurred 18 times already. Reports Tanaka Will Quit Post TOKYO (UPI) Prime Minister Tanaka, taking re- sponsibility for the current political crisis, will announce his resignation Monday, a To- kyo newspaper reported today. Tanaka, who has been premier and party president since July, 1972, has been under heavy pressure to re- sign since a magazine wrote of his business connections and private finances. Transportation- (ContlmicMl from Pugo I.) Initial movement of, their products to market and trucks move 90 percent of those Hlleman said. "Reasonable" Rates Hlleman said "chaotic conditions now exist" in the regulation of the farm-to- market trucking industry and suggested a regulatory commission would result in "reasonable and Just" rates to the farmer. Two student groups asked the commission to put greater emphasis on the state's rail- road passenger transportation network. Skip Laitner of the Iowa Student Public Interest Research Group recommend- ed that greater funding priori- ty be given for mass transit and railroads. "A first rate railroad system could be subsidized by one-half of what is..spent'.on highways and the result would be an increase in employment and a 60 percent, drop in ener- gy Laitner said. He said the commission, should not be afraid of rail- road subsidies because "no transportation system can be expected to pay for itself." Two groups specifically asked the DOT place'a greater emphasis on the state's high- way network. The Iowa County Engineers Assn. reminded the commission not to forget the state's secondary roads, while the Iowa Good Roads Assn. called for adequate funding for all state and county roads and city streets. Fees, Taxes The key to such funding, C. W.- Sloan of the IGRA said, is preservation., of Iowa's con- stitutional requirement that motor vehicle fees and taxes be used only for road improve- ments and maintenance. Although the subject of long trucks was not discussed in great detail because the commission has scheduled a special hearing for the truck issue next Wednesday, one in- dividual came down hard on the controversial big trucks. George Kramer of Waukee, involved in management serv- ices and consulting, called 65- foot double bottom trucks "highway freight trains" and urged the commission to not make the big trucks legal. Under provisions of the leg- islation creating the DOT, it 'has the power to set regula- tions on truck lengths allowed in the state. Howard Gunnerson, acting director of the department, said the commission staff would study and review all testimony before making rec- ommendations on the propos- al's changes. "They will begin making their modifications very soon and I would 'hope that they stay with a relatively simple Gunncrson said. The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Sun., Nov. 24, 1971 3A Two Arrested For Possession Two Cedar Rapids men were arrested by Marion pol- ice Saturday and charged with possession of a controlled substance.

Demos Oust Bartel From Panel's Choir By Ford Clark DES MOINES Richard Bartel of Iowa City Saturday was removed from the office of chairman of the Democratic slate platform committee. Bartel, a controversial Democrat serving on the Johnson county board of su- pervisors, was previously censured by the Johnson county Democratic central committee for his alleged non- support of a fellow Democrat running for office. Bartel had advocated non- support of Robert Burns, an incumbent supervisor running for re-election. Bartel claimed both the Republican and Inde- pendent candidates held posi- tions more in keeping with the platform proposed by the Democratic state platform committee. The Johnson county ..central committee censured Bartel for his stand and endorsed Burns. Burns won re-election Nov. 5. Bartel Saturday confirmed he had heard rumors there was a move afoot to remove him as chairman of the state platform committee. "How- he said, "I personally .brought the matter to a head. 1 said I would be willing to slay on as chairman. I was aware that I was in conflict wilh some members of Ihe slate cenlral committee and threw the matter open by rais- ing Ihe question of' the chairmanship myself." A secret ballot of 18 members of the committee at a meeting at North high in DCS Moines Saturday morning saw Bartel defeated in his move to retain the chairman- ship. Elected was Joseph Domi- an, a teacher in Che Cedar Rapids school system. Also elected to posts on the executive committee were Mrs. Barbara Murray of West Branch, secretary; Jim Wickham of DCS Moines, par- liamentarian; and Mrs. Jon- ann Wild of Davenport, vice- chairman. Bartel did retain a seat on the executive committee after being removed as chairman. Bartel attributed his "ob- vious difficulties with mem- bers of the central commit- tee" to his "support of a grass-roots movement in the slate platform commillee rather than party machinery." Domian, of 1523 B avenue NE, garnered eight votes of 15 cast in the three-way contest. He commented Salurday nighl that "there was no ani- mosity" in the removal of BarteL Comforting, Warm, Dignified Feeling words, words lhat families served by the CEDAR MEMORIAL FUNERAL HOME have used to describe candlelit services In the Old English Chapel of Memories.
