Protest Rising Over Navy's Wisconsin 'Doomsday' Button By GEORGE C. WILSON ThÂ» Wtihinghm Pest CLAM LAKE, Wis. - It Navy in the wondrous Nor Woods just outside this cros roads of a town is wiring W. consin for doomsday. The idea -- named Proje Sanguine -- is to bury a bac up nuclear "button" in the fo est floor in case other comm nications are knocked out enemy H-bombs. If Sanguine goes all the way- it is in the test stage now--th button would be in the form a huge grid of undergroun wires covering up to one-thir of the state of Wisconsin. The longest radio waves evi produced by man would b sent out of the grid--a huge un derground sending antenna -and reach Polaris submarine hidden in the ocean depths. Th Sanguine signal could be th one ordering the subs to fir their missiles. Many conservationists, bioli gists and others view the who! project with utter horror. The fear timber will be slashed, trou streams silted and animals an plants hurt or killed by the elec trie currents which the Nav admits will leak out of the San guine system. Tile opposition is becoming in creasingly vocal. It is similar i tone, though not yet volume, t that which prompted Presiden Nixon to relocate the Safeguard anti-ballistic missile sys tern. urseres..^ No hocus pocus in planting crocuses.

Schiffert, chairman o the State Committee to Stop Sanguine, said of the Navy in surance scheme for war com munication. Sen. Gaylord Nelson (D-Wis.), opposing Sanguine from the Washington end, said Congress has never taken a good look ai Ihe project to see if it is needed He has been briefed by the Navy on Sanguine and estimates its eventual cost of $2 billion. "The Navy admits," Nelson said, "that the network wil give off electrical currents that .vill affect some 20 counties ir .he north country . . . thousands of miles of Wisconsin farm Forest will be dug up to instal some 6,000 miles of cable under .he ground over a 25,000- square-mile area . . . there has been no debate in. Congress to prove that, even if the system ivill work, it is a necessary or a ustifiable expense." The Navy, in explaining Sanguine to people in Wisconsin, tates that "the purpose of the est facility" at. Clam Lake "is not to demonstrate the feasibil- ty or the effectiveness of the communications techniques involved. That has already been lemonstrated. "But before such a facility s constructed," the Navy con- inues, "we.are going to show r ou, not tell you, that the fa- n'lity will not adversely affect he area." The Nvy has built vhat it calls an "interference litigation laboratory" t o ' keep lectricaf currents from San- uine from disrupting the area. After the Clam Lake demon- trations, the Navy intends to nove south to Park Falls, Wis., o conduct more experiments, "'his will mean more digging nd building--regarded as a oon by job hungry residents nd a bane by the concerned onservationists. So far, about 27 million of $50 million set side for Sanguine has been sent. Official Navy press releases teer clear of the doomsday na- ure of Sanguine. The "fact leet" on the project states that Sanquine calls for the devef- pment of a single transmitter omplex located in the United | tates that could provide com- post here in Ihe breaihtaklngly beautiful Chequamegon National Forest. W. R. Hayford, site manager for RCA, which got the contract to run the test, said in an interview that Sanguine "is a post- attack communications system." He added that the American forces could only receive the signal--not talk back to Sanguine. To the person standing on the ground over Sanguine's long electric cables, the setting seems all wrong for a Strange- love system. White birches lean over the 30-foot-wide rights-of way the Navy has cut through miles of forest. Spruce trees can De heard whispering in the quiet of the forest. And other tree tops are aflame with the reds, golds and oranges of autumn. A ruffed 'rouse stood a little way down ,he road pecking up gravel--his form of teeth. Why here? Why here of all )laces? It turns out that the nilitsry believes upper Wisconsin is the only place in the world where the Sanguine electronic rick can be performed well. The reason is the peculiar properties of the rock shield run L ning underneath the swampy ground of this forest and the rolling farm land outside it. Called the Laurentian Shield, .he rock is about two billion /ears old and extremely dry. I lies under the upper third of Visconsin. The dryness means hat electrical currents will not move through it easily. The rock acts like a huge insulator. Elec- rical current in the Sanguine sending antenna, because of this rock insulator, would not be drawn off deep into the earth at those places where the sys- em is grounded. The rock, as layford explained it, assures maximum sending power for he giant Sanguine antenna. To send out an extremely low- requency radio wave, which is housands of miles long, the ending antenna itself must also ie thousands of miles long- much too big to be put on a hip or plane. The required length of an- enna, the Navy believes, can ie achieved through criss-cross- ing wires over the thousands of square miles of the Laurenlian munications with forces de-|shield. The resulting signals loyed worldwide." would go from Wisconsin around The unmentioned fact that the world. Khrushchev Successors Find They Have Many of His Woes By ANTHONY C.

The cavity formed between the earth and the ionsphere is known as the Schumann cavity after W. 0. Schumann, the German scientist who explored its possibilities for radio work. Extremely low-frequency signals going through this cavity, according to scientists, will remain strong as they go around the .world. They cannot be jammed. Also, the longer a radio wave is the deeper it penetrates water. Therefore, a long wave from Sanguine could get down to American Polaris submarines hiding in the ocean depths. They have to come near the surface to communicate now--a real danger in wartime where survival depends on stealth. Hayford said Sanguine will generate radio signals of 40 to 80 cycles per second--called Hert- zes. One unofficial calculation in that a signal of 100 hertz--a much longer radio wave than any in use today--would penetrate 400 feet into the water. If that calculation is correct, Sanguine could mean makin American Polaris submarine less vulnerable to detection an attacks the United States firs is to clobber any nation whic attack the United States firs Sanguine, then, could be linke by its supporters to the cred biljty of the American deterrer to anyone contemplating nucli ar war.

Face Hostile China Like the man they overthrew (: five years ago today, Communist party chief Leonid I. Brezh- lev and Premier Alexei N. Ko- sygin find themselves confronted with a hostile China. It has reen a major headache for hem from the start. Only two days after Khrushchev's ouster, led China tested its first atomic )6mb. One of the reported causes for (hrushchev's removal was charge that he had mishandled he dispute with China. The new Brezlinev-Kosygin team halted criticism and sent Kosygin to 'eking early in 1965, but this failed to prevent the split from widening. Press .attacks on the Chinese resumed here, trade dwindled, and starting last In another recent move reminiscent of five years ago, the Soviet government has dangled hope for Berlin talks before the West and shown interest in a treaty with Bonn to mutually renounce force. Just before his .ouster Khrush- a chev also was moving toward an attempt to improve relations with West Germany. He even sent his son-in-law, Alexei Ad- zhubei, to Bonn.

The existing command and :ontrof centers for launching American ICMBs are considered prime targets. Weapon leaders long have feared that nuclear effects in a war would black out those systems. , Sanguine fight at the moment is focused not on such longer-range strategic questions, but on what a vast communication system would do to Wisconsin's countryside. The Sanguine antenna now in existence consists of two 14-mile long stretches of wires which intersect at the middle to form a cross. There is a transmitter at the intersection. If Sanguine went all the way, such crosses would be repeated over and over again until there was a gigantic grid over the Laurentian Shield in upper Wisconsin. The present lest site has the antenpa wires strung above the ground on telephone poles. In the next construction phase at Park Falls and thereafter, the Sanguine wires will be buried in the ground. The Navy asserts that the wires will be buried with surgical precision so the land above them can be restored to ils former use, including farming. Only "scattered two-acre sites," the Naval Electronic Systems Command states, would be needed for the transmitters. There will be no need to denude large areas of forest land or cut wide swaths through the forest," the Navy contends. As for how the electrical currents going out from Sanguine will affect animal life and plants, the Navy has awarded a contract to Hazelton Laboratories of Falls Church, Va., to assess such dangers. Schiffert said "the whole Hazelton contract is a smokescreen to quiet the conservationists." He said Hazelton is too heavily dependent on military work to do an objective analysis and that the study contemplated will not cover enough of the animals and plants in the range of Sanguine's currents. March border clashes broke out. Lately there have been moves reminiscent of the regime's early efforts to patch things up. Press attacks have nearly dis- Last month'Kosygin went to Peking again, and this month China announced agreement to resume border talks broken off in 1964. While facing many of Khrushchev's same problems and even continuing some of his policies, the new team has avoided his earthy, unpredictable, style. Gone are the quips and shoe- pounding at the United Nations. Kosygin is the picture of sobriety- Pallid Style The colorless style is linked with a caution in foreign policy which has been reflected in the regime's pace in moving toward U.S.-Soviet talks on arms limitation. The Brezhnev-Kosygin caution has also .carried over into d o m e s t i c affairs. Where Khrushchev tried and discarded one economic experiment after another, the new team has moved slowly toward carrying put its one reform^a profit-oriented scheme designed to free Factory managers to improve ef- 'iciency and make better products. Whether it will win against the dead hand of bureaucracy in the state-run economy remains to be seen. His successors have been at .east as tough as Khrushchev, if not tougher, in cracking down on free-thinking artists and wri- .ers. Brezhnev is the top man, but is careful to bill himself as [he first among equals on the 11-man party Politburo which runs the country. Khrushchev, an officially anonymous "unperson," his name banned from the press lives quietly in a suburban-Moscow country home.

AUCTIONEERS, Jim Odle and Sam Scheller Supreme Court Denies Appeal By Tijerina WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court turned down today an appeal by Reles Lopez Tijerina from his conviction and said a two-year prison sentence in the assault of two U.S. forest um. rangers. Tijerina Is the leader of All- anza Federal de Mercedes, a Spanish - American group that claims title to a large tract of land in New Mexico. He contended there was no evidence that lie was responsible in any way for the attack on the two rangers in Garson 1966. National Forest The court rejected his plea for a hearing Last week without Tijerina comment, was sentenced in Alburquerque to a three-year prison term in connection with a sign-burning protest in another national forest. The Alianza represents the descendants of 39 Spanish-American families who have tried for more than a century to establish title to the land tract under the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo between Mexico and tie United States. Carson National Forest is located on the tract. On Oct. 22, 1966, about 400 members of the group occupied a recreation area called Echo atorium Carnp and Rangers Walter Taylor and Philip Smith were seized amid shouts in Spanish of "kill him" and "hang him." The Rangers were "tried" for "trespassing," and told to leave the camp grounds. The entrance to the camp ground was guarded by armed men and a f jag and sign were put up proclaiming jie spot to be a Spanish republic.

Moratorium DENVER (AP) -- Denver City Councilman Irving Hook said today he supports the Wednesday Vietnam moratorium. Although Hook spoke for himself he cited a City Council resolution calling for withdrawal of U.S. troops from Vietnam. Hook was one of eight speakers at a press conference held here by the Colorado chapter of the Business Executives Move for Vietnam Peace a national organization of more than 2,600 members. Hook said, "it is my hope that it (the moratorium) will lead toward a more immediate end of bloodshed and of hardship, an immediate approach of a cease- fire, and armistice and, ultimately, a peace that includes total withdrawal of American troops." A leader of the Colorado chapter of the. organization, Eugene president of Frankel Carbon and Ribbon Co., cautioned that while the BEM supports the Vietnam moratorium, it will take no active part in the student-oriented protest. He said that if the moratorium ".backfires, we will Icny any relationship with the adieals responsible." Dave Martin, Boulder, a former member of the national iresidential campaign staff of ien. Eugene J. McCarthy, said 'the time has come for cocktail arty chitchat about war's bru- ality to be transformed into a oud and clear denunciation of his government's war policy.
