Reagan is expected to announce monday that he has approved an air Force recommendation that the 100 intercontinental weapons be clustered in underground shelters within a 14-Square-mile area White House and Pentagon officials say.

Reagan s my plan known variously As Quot closely spaced Basing Quot and Quot dense pack Quot comes in response to a dec 1 deadline set by Congress for proposing a Home for the missiles. Then Congress which begins a lame Duck session nov. 29, will have 30 legislative Days to veto the plan a vote that is expected to be close. Meantime it has forbidden the Pentagon to set aside Money for Basing the weapons.

Although the president could make some last minute change the version of Quot dense pack Quot he is most Likely to approve would put All 100 missiles into an area about 14 Miles Long and a mile wide. Quot dense pack Quot backers say the missiles would be saved by Quot fratricide Quot a theory which holds that incoming soviet missiles would Knock each out leaving some my weapons Able to retaliate. Another option is to build More than 100 silos for the missiles leaving some of the shelters empty. That would make it More difficult for the soviets to target the missiles say my advocates. Quot dense pack Quot has Many critics As have All the other Basing plans. One is Charles Townes a physicist and Nobel laureate who headed a defense science Board panel that studied the idea. Townes has reportedly questioned whether the missiles can be put into Quot super hardened Quot or blast proof silos quicker than the soviets can come up with better weapons.
