Marble Hill brings
controversy to Ky.

Kernel Reporter
Nuclear power is one of the least
understood and most controversial
energy problems to emerge in the
last two decades. Proponents of
nuclear energy claim reliability,
economy. arid lack of pollution as its
major assets. while the opposition
disagrees on every point.
The controversy has come to
Kentucky. centering over the


news analysis

proposed Marble Ilill Nuclear Plant,
to be built across the Ohio River in

Nuclear power is basically this: a
controlled reaction involving
uranium is set up inside the core of
the reactor, and the heat produced
by this reaction is usui to convert
water into steam, which, in turn,
drives the electrical turbines that
produce electricity.

The Marble Hill reactor is of the
pressurized-water category, not the
breedertype which President (‘arter
has opposed. However. this reactor
will produce some quantities of
plutonium. the element used in most
nuclear weapons.

Questions of safety, economics,
arid waste disposal are the three
main points of contention that
surround nuclear power and the
Marble Ilill project in particular.

The safety question revolves
around one specific aspect: should a
meltdown of the core of the reactor
occur.the containment vessel would
be breached.

II that happened. according to the
I957 llrookhaven Report. persons
could be killed up to a distanceot‘ l5
miles and injured up to a distance of
4.”) miles. The Marble Hill facility is
.ll units from Kentucky‘s largest
city, Louisville The report
estimated damages in property
could lit-$7 billion inan area as large
as 150,000 square miles.

According to the US. Nuclear
Regulatory Commission (NRC) an
accidentot thise proportions is not
considered "credible.“

'I‘hc Brookhaven Report estimated
the chancesat one in 100,000 to one in
il billion per reactor year. In other
words. with I .000 operative reactors.
the chances of this type of accident
would decrease to one in 1.000 toone
in a million per year for all the
reactors combined.

'I'he report has been criticized
because it (lid not take. into con-


sideration such problems as
sabotage. and it assumed thatallthe
backup safety systems would work

Nuclear proprmwrts argue that
safety backup systems and general
construction technology of I077 has
far surpassed that of I957. wficn the
llrookliawn Report was issued.

l‘ublic Service Indiana (PSI). the
utility that plans to build the Marble
Ilill reactor. is confident that Marble
Ilill's containment vessel willnot be
broken. resulting in the release of
deadly radioactive particles.

“’I‘hc coutainrnent vessel will
never be breached. even in the
unlikely event of a core break-
down." said Dr. James (‘oughlin
vice presideal-nuclear for PSI.
“those plants have backup systems.
Nothing would be released from the
facility. Nothing at all."

“fit Kentucky Asst. .\tty. (fen.
Itayid Short disagreed with that

"If we have nothing whatsoever to
w oriy about. that why does the NRC
icqiiirc the utility It) locate the plant
ina low population zone. and why do
they have to work out an evacuation
plan for the residents ofthat zone‘.’
the whole idea is absurd." said

Short also had doubts about the
proponents' assertion that the
chanccsol a major accident are next
to nothing.

“We're not dealing with statistics.
\\c're dealing with people's lives
and property. l’Sl is doing the least
it is required to do regarding
evacuation procedure." he said.

'l'cstimony at the recent NRC
hetu‘ings revealed that a plan for
Jefferson ('ounty had not been
dcvclorx-d. I’Sl is only required to
worry about evacuation in a two-
niile /.onc.

'I‘wo setsof hearings were held by
the Atomic Safety and Licensing
Roard. The first dealt with en-
vironmental problems. and the
second hearing last week was
concerned strictly with safety

The environmental hearings
board issued a Limited Work
Authorivation (LWA) permit. the
first in a set of permits necessary to
open the facility. The LWA per-
mitted PS] to engage in limited site
preparation, but no actual plant
construction The safety hearings
will determine whether a “con
struction rx‘rmit” is issued. which
will permit the plant to be built.

Bakke case protested

UK groups back Affirmative Action

Kernel Staff Writer

An orderly demonstration
followed by a press conference
supporting national Affirmative
Action programs was held in front of
the Federal Building in downtown
Lexington yesterday afternoon

Amroximately 25 people attended
the demonstration, sponsored by the
Women‘s Law Caucus, the UK
chapter ofthe Black American Law
Student Association (BALSA), the
UK Student Senate and four other
local and campis groups.

Thedemorstrationbegan at 1 pm.
with some 15 pickets marcll'ng in
from of the bu’lding, carrying signs
which read “support Affirmative
Action," and “overturn the Bakke
decision" A stnrt press conference
was held on the steps of thebu‘lding
attza), with statements being read
to the press try reposentatives of the
spomoring organizations.

The demnstration was held to
call attention to the upcomiig
Supreme Gout hearing on the Alan
Bakke case, and is part of a
“Natimal Day of Student Protest"

I‘Iconomic aspects are also a point
of contention between the
proponents and the opposition.
According to Dr. (‘oughlin of PSI,
the cheapness of nuclear power was
one reason for the utility opting to
construct Marble Hill.

“'I‘he cost ()I generation of elec-
tricity from the nucleiu‘ plant will be
._'ti to per cent less than from coal,"
t oiiglilin said.

However. construction costs alone
for Marble “ill will total more than
:1 i' billion which is $300 million
more than the current value ofthe
company‘s entire existing system of
coal fired plants, trand‘ormers and
transmission lines combined.

I‘SI public relations officer John
Ilardcsty admitted that instead of

the original 31.? billion figure, costs '

Nader is a crusader for (oh, no) sports

Once upon a time consumer advocate Ralph
Nader incurred the wrath of General Motors. He
was a big man then, getting the cigar smoking
execs to take the air-cooled Corvair off the
automobile market.

But Nader must be hurting for new worlds to
conquer. He‘s now fighting sports’ evils of all

Nader has launched a new lobby
unimaginitively named FANS (Fight to Advance
the Nation's Sports) to denounce what he calls
“the rising cresendo of fraud and fast buck ar-
tistry" allegedly occurring in professional
sports. (Nader always could turn a phrase.)

FANS '5 against practices like charging $3.50
for a red stratosphere seat at Cincinnati’s
Riverfront Stadium or demanding $5 for unsafe
parking outside Chicago’s Wrigley Field or
asking $10 for a ticket to an Atlanta Hawks’
tzzzzzzzz) game.

But mostof the38.5million schmucks who paid
the ridiculous prices to attend major league
baseball games this season could care less if
crusader Nader fights for them or not.Some of
them probably don‘t know who the guy is

Besides, we doubt they’ll want to shell out the
$9 fee to join FANS. A waste of money, they’ll

And Ralph will have to come up with a better
line than ‘Think of the fan,” if he’s going to

convince the owners to roll back prices.Because
sports is a business and so many of the athletes
earn higher salaries than Jimmy Carter, the one-
time regular $1.50 ticket is nonexistent (except
for promotional dates) and will likely stay that

To show you how seriously the advocates take
their new cause, they’ve issued a FANS Con-
stitution, complete with a Bill of Rights and Ten

Some of the legislation includes:

~-Citing the arrogance of the owners and their
lack of sensitivity toward their fans.

~ lnstre that the fans are listened to about the
three-point shot in basketball.

—~ Educate the public in seeing that the proper
role of sports in America does not become
exaggerated or distorted.

Make sure the fans have the right “to be in-
formed about the operations” of teams, to
“participate in the formation of the rules,” to
have their interests “represented" in contract
disputes between players and owners and to be
“treated with courtesy and respect" at sports

in case Nader doesn‘t know, fans un-
fortunately don’t want to be flooded with in-
formation about the operation of their teams.
With terms like “reserve clause” and “free
agent“ and people like Marvin Miller, Charlie
Finley, Ted Turner and Bowie Kuhn floating

[is not often when UK men‘s athletic director
(‘liff Hagan is praised on this page. That’s
because he has done little in his two years as AD
to merit a pat on the back--until now.

Hagan has decided that Commonwealth

.he football fans‘ clamour to enlarge the $12

million facility.

The stadium ranks seventh in size in the 10-
member Southeastern Conference, though its
only five years old.

“We're interested in investigating the
possibilities," Hagan said. “We need to have
more solid experience of a sold-out situation. We
think we‘re for real, but I’d like to have more

Hagan‘s wait‘n see, let’s test the market at-

several million dollars for about 15,000 more

seats, when you‘re not absolutely sure those
seats would be filled?

Of course, with more victories like the one at
Penn State Saturday, expansion may take place
sooner than we think...

While Hagan is being commended, UK coach
Fran Curci deserves a condemnation.

ltwas Curci who became upset (off the record,
naturally ) when he learned that Joe Hall had
solicited funds to build a dormitory for the
basketball team.

Curci stressed then he didn’t want a football
dorm because the costs would be prohibitive
(about $2 million) and because he thought it
wrong for his players to be separated from the
student body.

But Fran has done an about face and has
received permission from UK President Otis
Singletary to ask outsiders (coal barons again?)
for funds.

But why did the coach change his mind,
especially when he put down Hall's efforts only

three months ago?

Education: The great
American trivia game


Trivia is a noun meaning trifles or
insignificant things. Trivia is a
game played by folks whose minds
aren't as burdened with thewoes of
the world as some.

Excellence at the game requires a
stbstantial trash index and an
ability to spew forth meaningless
items at will. It's fun to play with
sportswriters and boring people at
parties. it‘s no fun at all to play in
the classroom.

In Trivia, you might be asked:
what are the names of the Phan-
tom‘s two porpoises? What is the
nameof Little Orphan Annie‘s dog?
In what movie does Mae West sing,
“I‘m an Occidental Lady in an
Oriental Mood for Love?” If you
answer (respectively) Solomon and
Nefertiti, Sandy and Klondike An-


nie, you’ll be correct and
cmgratulated If you don’t, nothing
much willhappen. Chances are the
questioner doesn’tknow either.


ln classroom Trivia, you might be
asked: who discovered America and
in what year? Who is Kingfish Long?
Who said, “i only regret tha l have
but one life to give for my country?"
If you answer Columbus in 1492, a
former governor of Louisiana and
Pat Herry, you'll be correct and
congratulated. If you don’t, you‘ll be
flunked out of class, possibly out of
school. Chancesare the questioner
won’t know these answers either.

What's the difference between
questims about MGM Studios and
Wily Lormn? Comic strim and
Great Classics? Wrigley Fun Facts
to Tell Your Frienis and the World
Book Encyclopedia? Why will no one
offer an “A" for knowing famous
pairs like Batman and Robin or
Yancy Derringer and Paho, bu be
all too eager to bestow an “F” for
failingto know the Monitor and the
Merrimack or Custer and Sitting
Bull? Why sinuld one need to know

the real names of lewis Carroll and
Mark Twain and not thereal names
of Superman and Spider-Man?

Putsimply, it's because somebody
said so.
“Sombody"is an educator, who,


arbitrarily and with malice, chose to
assign significance to some facts
and not others. Probably he chose
the categories he knew best.

Someone should beasking, “Why
is your fact more importantthan my
fact?" and then “Is your fact irn-
portant to me at all?"

Will anyone ever be requizzed on
the names of Columbus‘ three ships
(the Larry, the Moe and the Curly
Joe)? More likely, someone will
dare you to tell them it was
Broderick Crawford on Highway
Patrol, that Sky King‘s niece was
Penny and that Lamont Cranston


Why should
one need

to know the
real name of
Lewis Carroll
and not



wasn‘t the Shadow‘s real name.

Regardless of which version of
Trivia is played. the rewards are
about the same: om wins a beer,the
other wins a seat on the GE Colege
Bowl (BZZZT! Five points, can you
take it, USC?).

The poblem is,whether the game
is recreational or educational, me
retains only items, with no usable
knowledge beiind them. The student
who excels academically B the one
who ha the best rotation for the
most unoomected facts. And that
smdentwtllcontlme to memorize,


continue to regurgitate, never
asking why something is this way or
that,until allthat‘s left is input and


That the character of education
and Trivia are so similar is a sad
thing. That the only separating
factor is that elusive, arbitrary
quality of “significance” is ap

There are those who refute the
accusation. They defend rote
memory on the grounrb that a
factual basis isthe only basis for in-
depth study of a subject, that a
suidcntcannot work with a subject
and understand it until he knows
something about it.

This would be valid if there were
not so few educational programs
that pass the stage of rote memory.
College entrance exams, GREs and
SATs all depend on fact retention,
andthe ability to reissue. those facts
in 30 minutes or less. Nothing in
those tests, those measures of iri-
telligence, ability and readiness.
require astudent to place things in
evena cohesive. much less original.

Sturhnts learn about science, the
humanities, literature and
mathematics. That is, they learn
“about," not ”why." John Dewey
wrote, “Education is what is left
after the facts are forgotten.“ if,
these days.one forgets thefacts, one
is left with precious little 'ndeed.

Seriously, wherein the real world
are people faced with prepared
questions, the arswers to whicharc
already known?

That sums up the Trivia game:
asking questiors that already have
answers. And what better describes
current education?

Education needs to be something
more than recall.Whenit becomes
thought, reason, realizations,
discovery, we will learn something.
And learn something worth
knowing, not by standards that
prove om from column A matches
one from column B, but lasting
throtgh tests and time and serving
as somethirg more than a game.
