anonymity However the president was not expect ed to set timetables or a price tag at this time the official said The president in weighing the feasibil ity of revitalizing the muchweakened space

put Americans on the moon by the end of the 1960s Rather his endorsement of the costly moonMars project was to be very gen eral said the official Another official said Bush will ask Vice President Dan

ministrator and other astronauts also were to attend and join Bush for a barbe cue after the speech A return to the moon and flight to Mars would require congressional approval of billions of dollars The administration could encounter rough sledding given congressional obstacles already evident in a bid to get billion for current space station plans which would be basic to any program for Mars exploration Congress is expected to approve less than the billion Bush is seeking for NASA next year which is about 1 percent of the trillion federal budget for 1990 Bushs request would have to be more than doubled to pay for a moonMars pro ject NASA officials estimate Truly said last week that a moonMars project could not be carried out under todays NASA with its work force of 14000 down from 36000 in the heyday of the Apollo program that put 12 Ameri cans on the moon in the late 1960s and the early 1970s Please See BUSH Page 8A CRASH REMAINS A section of the United Airlines DC 10 stands

Report Reassurance Needed On Nuclear Safety By The Associated Press WASHINGTON The Energy Depart ment faces more criminal probes of its nuclear weapons plants and mounting public pressure to close them unless it controls their environmental and safety problems federal auditors say In a report highly critical of depart ment management the auditors said ur gent action is needed to ensure that envi ronmental laws are obeyed and the public is reassured that the government can reliably and safely run the weapons plants including the Savannah River Site near Aiken Rep Thomas Luken DOhio chairman of the subcommittee said he was shocked to learn that the department had no way of determining its own compli ance with environmental laws He harsh ly criticized John C Layton the inspec tor general for not finding this flaw earlier Youre not a watchdog youre a lap dog Luken said Iayton disputed the charge but later acknowledged that in hindsight it may have taken too long for his office to take a broad look at the environmental problems Layton told Luken he decided to take the unusual step of making public a flash preliminary version of the audit because of the urgency of the prob lems it identifies Among the key findings is that the En ergy Department is unable to solve envi ronmental problems at its weapons plants because managers and other em ployees are not properly trained and are not fully knowledgeable about environ mental law The report also said the department had failed to adequately oversee the work of the private companies that operate the weapons plants under federal contracts The report dated July 14 was made public Wednesday by a House panel as a senior Energy Department official dis closed that a special group of experts from outside the department had been dispatched to a weapons plant in Colorado Leo Duffy a special assistant to Ener gy Secretary James Watkins said in testimony prepared for a House Energy and Commerce subcommittee that the experts will attempt to verify the origin of a maninade radioactive element dis covered at the Rocky Flats plant near Denver The plant processes plutonium for weapons manufacturing Scientists of the Environmental Protec tion Agency have said it is possible the radioactive materials strontium and cesi um were produced by an accidental nu clear reaction even though Rocky Flats operations do not include the splitting of atoms Duffy said that while earlier Energy Department reviews of the radioactive material gave no evidence that a chain reaction had occurred Watkins wants an independent study to help alleviate pub lic concern regarding safety at this facility Please See RKASSliKANCK Page 8A ;
