Keeping Peaceful Atoms From Being Bombs WASHINGTON (AP) -- As it shcs to embrace nuclear povv- tlie world must trust a (rag- system of international eaty, forbidden technology id on-site inspection to avert read ot nuclear arms. The aim is to keep peaceful oms from becoming atomic rmbs, built perhaps by terror- is or a country nervous about neighbor. But there is no certainty the 'stem will succeed. Some nuclear weapons con- ol experts are pessimistic, as- erting that mankind is fighting rear-guard action against in- vitable nuclear arms prolifera- 'an. Others are hopeful that hold- ut nations eventually will re- ounce development of nuclear :senals. But government sources warn lat within the next decade -a ozen or more nations could uild nuclear weapons it they esire. They will need only r eapon-grade nuclear material nd the determination to with- tand probable international riticism. As nations turn to nuclear ower to solve energy prob- ems, the possibility grows that ne might use its peaceful pow- r reactor as a stepping-stone o nuclear weapons. . POWER REACTORS IN USE More than 100 American-type lower reactors are operating, jeihg built or planned abroad. Other nuclear nations also are exporting reactors. The total number will rise into the hundreds in coming years. As a result, the volume of nuclear materials available will grow rapidly. Some will be uranium now used in nuclear power reactors but unsuitable for atomic weapons. Some will be plutonium, to be used in nuclear power reactors of the future. Plutonium, an excellent bomb material, will be stored in many places and widely transported. It is relatively scarce now, its possession confined to the countries that possess nuclear weapons. But by 1980, reactors throughout the world are expected to produce more than 130,000 pounds a year. "If a country is determined to obtain weapons-grade nuclear materials, there are many ways they can proceed," said Dr. Fred Ikle, director of the U.S. Aims Control and Disarmament Agency. "There is nothing, absolutely nothing, not even in this country, that gives absolute protection against diversion," Ikle told a congressional committee In July. NON-PROLIFERATION What protection there against diversion of in 1968, the Non Treaty has beei is nuclear materials comes from'the Non- Proliferation Treaty and the In tcrnational Atomic Encrgs Agency's system of inspections inventories of nuclear mate rials, tamper-proof seals anc surveillance cameras in 50 countries. Negotiated Proliferation signed and ratified by 82 coun tries. They have pledged not t develop nuclear weapons or, i they already possess them, no to aid other countries in acqui sition. But 62 countries either have not signed or have not ratifiec the treaty. France and China, which both possess nuclear weapons including the hydrogen bomb haven't signed. They may e\ port any nuclear technolog: they choose. India, which exploded he first nuclear device in June, i not a treaty signatory. She he came the sixth nation to pos sess nuclear explosives. Tli others .are the United States Russia, China, France and Bri Government sources sa some 20 countries, among them Japan, West Germany, Argen m, Brazil, South Korea and nkistan -- all not parties to tie treaty -- probably could roduce nuclear explosives if icy do so.

R-Ariz., says he believes the defense judget should be cut by §5 bit- ion and that all federal em- ployes should have their sala- ·ies trimmed by 10 per cent in an effort to fight inflation. Goldwater told a Republican imd-raising dinner on Wednesday night that time has come for this country to cut fedcra ; salaries and some federal pro grams."

Uraniimi ore must be treated i separate a rare isotope, U235, using large, closely guarded plants that cost hundreds of. millions of dollars to build. There are several dozen of these enrichment plants in the United States, the AEC reports, but won't give the exact number. Plutonium of the grade used atomic weapons is found ic spent fuel of nuclear reac- ors, including those using ura- ium to generate electricity 5ut the spent fuel is so radio ctive that large, remotely op rated and expensive plants are icedcd to extract it.
