(AP) -- Michigan's Upper Peninsula Peninsula would be a major link in the nation's nuclear defense network -- and probably a prime nuclear target -- if "the U.S. Xavy goes ahead with plans to install a massive communications system. Known as Project Sanguine, the system involves some 1.400 miles of antenna cable that would be buried in a grid the Western UP. The Navy says Project Sanguine is designed to sur- vi\e a nuclear attack so it could send out a single radio signal to Polaris submarines traveling deep below the surface surface of the ocean. The message, in effect, would order a nuclear attack of our own. Turned away from proposed is the subject of a continuing contro\ersy o\er its technical feasibility, emironmental impact impact and safety. Environmentalists object to the project because it would involve digging a grid of trenches through the, forested areas of Baraga, Iron. Dickinson Dickinson and Marquelte counties to lay the cable. The Xavy says some flexibility rights-of-wav will be used where available, and that reforestation reforestation would occur after the cable is laid. Environmentalists say they also fear possible biological effects from the extremely low frequency waves created by the grid- Early testing at Hazelton Laboratories Inc. of Falls Church, Ya.. under a Xavy in Upper Peninsula of dogs, cause mutations in fruit flies, and retard the growth of sunflowers. Reports on later studies sax- there is little evidence of biological problems relating to the field, however, and the Xavy insists it would be about the same as a buried utility system. Further study of the problem is going on now under under Xavy contracts. Virginia and Xorth Carolina came as the system created electrified fences, disrupted communications and rang telephone bells at random. The Xavy says these problems problems have been overcome. Meanwhile, there is an ongoing ongoing debate over the effectiveness effectiveness of the system. Critics say it would take Sanguine nearly two hours to a simple matter for an enemy to jam the transmission. An ad-hoc panel of government government scientists recently reported, reported, however, that there was no ''significant reason to disagree'* with Xavy predictions predictions of the system's effectiveness. effectiveness. The Xavy concedes - Sanguine Sanguine would be a key target in a nuclear war, but said the
