Dec accused of distorting nuclear Plant safety data Chicago a the National intervenes a coalition of 45 environmental groups asserted saturday that the atomic Energy commission is suppressing information coaching witnesses and tailoring testimony at hearings on nuclear Plant safety. In an Effort to Back up the tailored testimony and witness coaching accusations the inter Kennedy Democrat favorite tar Heel voters favor Nixon by Mary Junck and Maury Damien Klein Chapel Hill president Nixon will be a Tough candidate to beat in North Carolina in 1972. A recent state wide Survey conducted by the Institute for research in social science at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill shows Strong Nixon support across most population groups. The results discussed below Are based on a Small part of the Survey of North Carolina. The Survey also spanned a wide Range of nonpolitical topics including Southern ism patterns or residential history and use of television and newspapers. According to the Survey Nixon can win Over senators Edward Kennedy Edmund Muskie and Hubert Humphrey and gov. George Wallace of Alabama. A Cross Section of 1.091 adult North carolinians was asked who they wanted for president in three trial races Nixon Kennedy or Wallace Nixon Muskie or Wallace and Nixon. Humphrey or Wallace. Although Nixon leads in All races Kennedy edges to within 3 i re engage Points of him. Wallace attracts a sizable Core of supporters in North Carolina and comes in second in the race with Nixon and Humphrey. Wallace a strength has not lagged much since the 1968 presidential election in which he finished second to Nixon. 40 per cent to 31 per cent and Humphrey trailed with 29 per cent. In 1971 Wallace averages a solid 26 per cent of the vote in All three trial races. Muskie finishes second falling 12 percentage Points behind Nixon and a scant i percentage Point ahead of Wallace. Humphrey comes in third�?22 percentage Points behind Nixon and 4 Points Behms Wallace. The Survey shows that the Man Blacks want for president and the one Whites want is usually the same person. North carolinians of the two races Divide sharply on presidential preference. The significant trends Are a the Whites Strong backing of Nixon pushes him into first place in every trial race. Nixon a White support is two to five times greater than his Black support depending on the democratic candidate. A Whites prefer Kennedy and Muskie about equally b u t Kennedy a overwhelming Black support makes him the leading democratic contender. A although a majority of Blacks would vote for Muskie. His Mack support is surprisingly Low for a democrats even less than Humphreys. A Wallace a Appeal to Blacks is insignificant but his support among Whites is substantial. He finished second with Whites in All three trial races. Because race divides the political preferences of North carolinians so decisively various population sub groups see tar Heel on 7-a vendors released copies of what it said was a secret memorandum the dec issued to its prospective witnesses. The dec began a National hearing on the safety of nuclear Power plants last week in Bethesda. My. The National intervenes contend they can prove the emergency Core Cooling systems in the facilities arc unsafe. They assert safeguard research should be put ahead of operational research. The dec hearings directed More to the future involve a $40-billion Power Industry which has 23 nuclear Power generating units operational in the country. It has too More either under construction or on order and several Hundred More earmarked it is estimated that in the next two decades nearly half of the nations electrical Power will be generated by nuclear equipment. A the present criteria Are unsafe and they Are going to have to phase out the present reactors As a piece of bad technology a Myron m. Cherry a National intervenor attorney told a news conference saturday. Cherry said that the dec has a refused to let any witnesses appear from the advisory committee on reactor safeguards which has been pressing for several years for More tests on the emergency Core Cooling he added that this a is tantamount to suppressing important information and that a some of the old hard line bureaucracy of the dec still seems to be Able to undermine Federal housing operation to greatly alter patterns by Tom Seppy associated press writer Washington a the Federal housing department will put into operation monday its disputed new regulations intended to break up concentrations of federally subsidized Low income and minority housing in inner City areas.

Construction of Low and Moder income housing in Model cities and Urban renewal areas.

The changes Stem in part from a series of recent court decisions that Hud cannot be color Blind in the administration of its programs and must take positive Steps to decrease the effects of past housing discrimination. Hud Secretary George Romney said of the new regulations a it is our purpose to pursue the administration policy of not contributing to minority concentration of housing and to obey the orders of Federal courts which have ruled on these the new requirements set Forth eight criteria by which Hud will give priority for funding to proposed multifamily housing i ejects including Public housing and other subsidized developments. A major criterion is that the new project open up no segregated housing opportunities but others include need and improved location for All lower in come families and creation of Job or business opportunities for business. The chief complaints have been that the criteria favor suburban and Rural areas and will make it almost impossible to build new housing projects in the cite.

A help a said a voice in a barely audible whisper. Then the urgent warning that some intruders a have got Bobby and the Telephone went dead. Less than half an hour later Hall was standing in the Home of his wife a parents or. And mrs. Bryce Durham staring at their bodies and the body of their teen age son Bobby. All three had been savagely choked possibly with a rope authorities concluded. Then their three bodies had been Slung Over a Bathtub and the faces apparently shoved into the water. A Small army of police detectives have been scouring the Snow covered mountains around the Durham Home in Western North Carolina near Boone searching for the killers.
