Called fault tree and event tree analysis, the methods involve using computers to predict the probabilities that various ehaims of events necessary to cause an accident could happen For example. he found the chances of a reactor accident killing I,(MMI people were the same as a meteor hitting the earth and killing 1.000
The Union of Concerned Scientists 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 Rasmussen 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 untrue.”
^‘Numbers of quite serious design errors are frequently discovered at the country’s nuclear power plants,” Kendall said.
Kendall said the Rasmussen a/ialysis estimated that a certain type of breakdown had a probability of one in a million, times a million, times a million
Yet, Kendall said. that breakdown has occurred once already and similar, though not identical, incidents have occurred 18 times already.
Reports Tanaka Will Quit Post
TOKYO (UPI) - Prime Minister Tanaka, taking responsibility for the current political crisis, will announce his resignation Monday, a Tokyo newspaper reported today.

initial movement of their
products to market and trucks
move 90 percent of those
products,” lineman said
lineman said “chaotic conditions now exist” in the regulation of the farm-to-market trucking industry and suggested a regulatory commission would result in
“reasonable arid just” rates to the farmer.
Two student groups asked the commission to put greater emphasis on the state’s railroad passenger transportation network Skip l^aitner of the Iowa Student Public Interest Research Group recommend-t»d that greater funding priority 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 energy consumption,” Inaner said. He said the commission should not be afraid of railroad 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 highway 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
The key to such funding, C. W. Sloan of the IGRA said, is preservation^ of Iowa’s constitutional requirement that motor vehicle fees and taxes be used only for road improvements 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 individual came down hard on the controversial big trucks.
George Kramer of Waukee, involved in management services 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 legislation creating the DOT. it has the power to set regulations 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 recommendations on the proposal’s changes.
“They will begin making their modifications very soon and I would hope that they stay with a relatively simple policy,” Gunnerson said
Two Arrested For Possession
Two Cedar Rapids men were arrested by Marion police Saturday and charged with possession of a controlled substance.
Police arrested Clary Steger. 22, of 1800 Seventh avenue SE, and Scott Chadima. 20, of 401 Red Fox road SE. early Saturday morning on the south side of Marion. The pair possessed a substance believed to be marijuana, police said
Steger and Chadima were taken to the Linn county jail but were released later Saturday to the community court services

Demos Oust Bartel From Panel's Chair
By Fsrd Clark
DES MOINES - Richard Bartel of Iowa City Saturday was removed from the office of chairman of the Democratic state platform committee
Bartel, a controversial Democrat serving on the Johnson county board of supervisors, was previously censured by the Johnson county Democratic central committee for his alleged nonsupport of a fellow Democrat running for office.
Bartel had advocated nonsupport of Robert Burns, an incumbent supervisor running for reselection. Bartel claimed both the Republican and Independent candidates held positions 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 “However,” he said, “I personally brought the matter to a head.
I said I would be willing to stay on as chairman. I was aware that I was in conflict
with some members of the state central committee and threw the matter open by raising the question of the chairmanship myself. ”
A secret ballot of 18 members of the committee at a meeting at North high in Des Moines Saturday morning saw Bartel defeated in his move to retain the chairmanship.
Elected was Joseph Dorman, a teacher in flu* Cedar Rapids school system.
Also elected to posts on the executive committee were Mrs. Barbara Murray of West Branch, secretary; Jim Wickham of Des Moines, parliamentarian, 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 “obvious difficulties with members of the central committee’ to his “support of a grass-roots movement in the state platform committee rather than party machinery.”
Domian, of 1523 B avenue NE, garnered eight votes of 15 cast in the three-way contest.
He commented Saturday night that “there was no animosity” in the removal of Bartel.
