' " r - b P. afe a i I ' esALL EPlT IONS The Arizona Republic Sunday, October 28, 1979 Nuclear accident tied to childhood cancer T Uuited Press International r ; ; NEW YORK Childhood cancers around Three '''Mile Island nuclear plant will increase as much as !,'fiO percent in the next five years, a University of ; Pittsburgh professor of radiologic physics said Sat- urday. J ; Dr. Ernest J. Sternglass said the cancers, including leukemia, would be diagnosed in children five-I Jo-nine-years-old within a 200-mile radius of the "Mriken nuclear plant. jn a report at a symposium on "Survival in the New Age," the scientist blamed iodine 131 and Strontium 90 for polluting the atmosphere at the time of the accident. ;rlle said strontium 90 contaminated milk from 'area cows and was shipped as far as 200 miles "atyay. Fallout went that far, too, he estimated. . , . Government estimates predicting only a slight increase in cancer as a result of the Three Mile ilsland accident "are a deception," said Sternglass, a physicist for the U.S. Naval Ordnance Laboratories before joining the university in 1967. Three Mile Island families aren't alone, he said. Records show strontium 90 levels are up in milk near other nuclear plants and that children in those areas are endangered. "We are headed for biologic disaster," the scientist said, "and babies are the targets around the nuclear plants in densely populated area! from what we know about the high levels of strontium 90. "A society cannot survive if its children increasingly are born underweight or malformed or with subtle damage to their mental functions." Sternglass, who also teaches history and philosophy of science at Indiana University in Blooming-ton, said nuclear plants in densely populated areas should be run on gas or oil until coal gasification and coal liquification technology. is perfected. Eighty percent of the equipment in a nuclear plant would be used in such conversions, he said. As for Three Mile Island, Sternglass estimated the increase in malignancies would show in youngsters who were in the womb anytime from the start of the accident in March to June r- and in those drinking contaminated milk then and later. Sternglass and Dr. George Wald, a Nobel Prize winner in medicine from Harvard University, went to Harrisburg at the time of the accident and urged evacuation of pregnant women and toddlers. Sternglass said they were called in by concerned citizens. : Fuel costs grow in Neiv Hampshire iSchools opt for 3-day weekends J. United Press International ""-CONCORD, N.H. - A New Hampshire school district has decided the only way to cope with ; rising fuel-oil prices this winter is to give students a three-da v weekend. ', Backers of the plan think they are starting a ;tfind, now that heating-oil prices are near $1 a gallon. . Htichard Magnifico, business administrator for the Pittsfield School District, with 750 students, said Saturday that at least 2,310 gallons of fuel can Ik saved by canceling classes for 1 1 Mondays in the jftiddle of winter. The days will be made up by cutting the April vacation period and extending the school year in June. After the district's annual midwinter vacation Jan. 2-7, the district's high school and two grammar schools will close each of the next 10 Mondays, through early March. On those days, the temperature in the building can be cut from the normal 65 degrees to 50 degrees, Magnifico said. Magnifico said that when he drew up the district budget, he expected to spend 53 cents a gallon for oil this winter. Now, he said, he will pay 90 cents to 93 cents a gallon.
