Scott Poshes Liquor Chief To Quit Post CHICAGO (Wt) ~ lllifiois Attorney General William J. Scott has urged Goerge M. Burditt to either resign as acting head of the Illinois Liquor Control Commission or give up law clients holding liquor licenses. Burditt, 50, a former Republican leader in the General Assembly, earlier said there was "no Way" he would relinquish a legal client to serve on the commission. He Was not available for comment following Scott's Wednesday statement'. But a spokesman for Gov. Daniel Walker said the governor believes there is no conflict of interest because Burditt represents the food and chemical branch of the firm, not its beet- making division. Third in Year Burditt was named acting chairman of the commission last June by Walker. He is the third man to head the troubled liquor commission this year. Walker fired Chairman Donald Adams of Quincy earlier this year and then fired Lawrence Johnson of Champaign, the man he had named to replace Adams. Johnson and Adams charged they were fired because of plans to investigate charges that Anthony Angelos illegally helped finance Walker's campaign. In a letter to Burditt, Scott said he "would strongly urge you to either resign the client or resign from the Liquor Con trol Commission." Oolesbu^ 1II. Thursday, July .2&..-1973 & New Reactor Could Make Cheap Power CHICAGO (UPI) —The chair man of the Atomic Energy Commission and three princi pals signed "contracts Wednes day for the development of a $700 million liquid metal fast breeder reactor, the nation's first. Dr. Dixy Lee Ray, chairman of the AEC, said the reactor would be a demonstrator project at Oak Ridge, Term. She told newsmen at the signing ceremonies the project is designed to demonstrate the potential value and environmental desirability of the fast breeder reactor concept as a practical option for generating electrical power and to confirm tSie value of the concept for important non - renewable natural resources. Dr. Ray said a fast breeder reactor produces more nuclear fuel than it consumes while generating electricity. A successful demonstration of the concept could lead to abundant economical -energy for centuries, she said. Little Waste The breeder should not create an excessive amount of waste and therefore no environmental problem from the breeder is anticipated, Dr. Ray said. The AEC said the signing is a preliminary step to setting the power project in motion. The commission said there will be eight to 12 months' work on an environmental statement before construction along the Clinch River at Oak Ridge can begin. The project is expected to be ready for operaftion by 1980.
