Report Predicts Massive Spending

WPPSS Costs May Reach $200 Billion
by Andy M cCormi ck
If Senator King Lysen is right about the
cost of the WPPSS' nuclear power plants,
Washington ratepayers are up the Satsop
river without a paddle.
Lysen (D-Seattle) thinks WPPSS is a
" mistake and should be shut down ." Specifi cally, he recommends that construction on plants #4 and #5 be di scontinued
immedi ate ly, thu s sav ing taxpayers as
much as $85 billion over the nex t forty
The Seattle Senator's dire forecast for
the future of nu clear power in W as hington is found in a report entit led "The'
To tal Cost of WPPSS." The report, prepared by Lysen Staffer Jim Lazar, w as released to littl e media attention earlier thi s
month .
At a time when the Legislature is bu sy
sli cing pennies from the state budget,
Lysen's report points to some staggering
projec ted spending on the part of WPPSS .
The big increase in spend ing by WPPSS,
in turn, drastically affects consumer rates.
Accordi ng to the report, the $17 bi II ion
construction budget is o n Iy a small part
of the total cost of WPPSS-$200 billion.
This means that in order to pay for
WPPSS' nuclear pJants, a family' of four in
Washington State will have to shell out
$100,000 over a 35 year period " By 1988,
when all five nu clear power plants are
expec ted to be operating, WPPSS will add
over $150 a m onth to eac h customer's
bi ll ," the report stat es.
Lysen's figure o f $200 billion in total
cos ts f or the five WPPSS' plants, contrasts
of $110 billi o n. I ysen's report began with
a base of $17 bi lli o n (constru ct ion costs)
dnd t hen ca lculat ed the int erest o n
WPPSS' debt , opprat ing cos ts and cos t of
oecommission in g the pl ant s (approx.
$R6 bi llio n)
Sea ttle P-I co lu mnist Shelby Scates
quoted a WPPSS spokeswoman, Mic helle
Sdranov ich, a, sayin g that the difference
between the two estimates is due to differences on cos t esca lation ( like inflation )
over the nex t 35 years Lysen fold the CPJ
that he is sure of his figures, that they are
actually " very conservativ e," and that he
arrived at hi s cost esca lat ion figures by
studying documents related to WPPSS's
bond sa les.

The stated purpose of Lysen ', report is
to obtain a rough esti mate of the total
costs faced by ratepayers a5 a result of
the construction and operat ion of the
WPPSS power plants Lysen's report also
suggests that WPPSS , because of its access to more compl ete lo ng- term cos t
data, rev ise hi s study
WPPSS spokesman Jim Hu ghes sa id that
sin ce the report has on ly recently been
ava ilabl e, it is too soon to tell whether
WPPSS wi ll conduct such a study If the
state Se nate formally reques ted a stuo y
like Lysen's to be conducted , then one
would be carri ed out, Hughes sa id . " I
do n' t know if one study by one person o n
a senator's staff const itutes a formal reques t by the Senate," he said .
Hughes al so critici zed some of the findi ngs of Lysen's report. First, the $100,000
impact on average family is erroneous,
the WPPSS spokesman states. Lysen derives that figure by look ing solely at the
number of ratepayers in Washington state,
Hughes sa id, whereas the cost of the
pl ants wil l be divided by WPPSS among
res idents of Montana and Idaho. This " dilutes" cos t impact per family by as many
as 6 million people.
The other criti c ism Hughes levelled at
Lysen's report IS that it does not take into
account the revenue to be generat ec oy
operation of the plants
But Lysen, a supporter of WPPS S until
1978 w hen he saw what he de'>ulbed as
" a disas ter ahead, " beli eves that if the
WPPSS's plants are 10 generate reven ue
upon their complE'lion , then rates wi II
haw' to in crease evpn hi~h e r them
planned WPPSS w ill be totally COITlmitted to nu clear power and will have to
encourage it s use as w idely as possi bl e,"
he sa id . The affec t of thi s poli cy wi ll drive
rates up beca use alternative energy
sources and conse rva tio n w ill no t have
been ex plored by WPPSS.
Hughes says that the whole issue of
WPPSS and nuclear power boil'> down to
how much elec tri c ity wi ll be required in
the future. As to cost , "A ll indicators are
'that nuclea r pow er wil l be more than
competitive in the years to come." Besides, Hughes sa id, who can predi c t what
sa lari es will be like in the yea r 2(XX), how


mu ch gas and oil will cost, and the leve l
to whICh hydro-electri city rates wi ll have
ri sen.
How mu ch elec tricity rates will rise dppends in p art on how long the WPPSS
nucl ear plants are fun cti onal. WPPSS ca lcul ates t ha t eac h plant w ill have a 31 yea r
life span , but Senator Lysen caution,
against thi s estimati o n. "No commercial

Evergreen State Coll ege's academi c calendar won't be different than that used by five of the six state four-year coll eges
and universities. It will remain on the quarter system .
" As far as I ca n see, the issue (of switching to the early
sem ester system) is dead ," Byron Youtz , Vi ce-Pres ident and
Provost, sa id following the faculty vote April 8 to no t conti nue
study of the se mester system proposal.
Youtz had proposed that the faculty take a preliminary look
at the DTF and deve lop program plans for both qu arter and
semester systems which could be further evaluated in an allca mpus meeting. The facu lty defeated that notion in its vote o f
27 to 16 with a dozen abstentions
" The doubl e curriculum planning would have been a very
heavy workload for the faculty to d~al with in suc h a short
amount of time," Walker Allen , Registrar, said to explain the
faculty rejection of Youtz' plan . " Resistance to change is very
strong, you know."
Allen and Ron Woodbury, faculty members, participated in
the statewide semester calendar committee which had representatives from each of Washington's four-year institutions. The
committee studied the feasibility of switching to the semester
system. " There's not much interest from the other colleges to
switch," said Woodbury .
Woodbury cited several reasons why the switch would not
appeal to faculty and students at TESC. " I can always haul out
the old 'students don't like it' argument, but it's hard to get a
true picture of what students think. Personally, the semester
system ci~sn.:t appeal to me because I would have to come on

campu s too early, certainly before Labor Day, to prepare for
·the semester. "
" There are two interesting things I learned in talking with
students about the switch:' sai d Walker Allen . " They sa id the
semes ter system would redu ce the options for study avai lable
and students are o bvi o u sly grateful for the second chance to
bailout honorably."
The latter statement points o ut o ne of the strong arguments
used to support the sem ester swi tch : retention . " The retention
problem is damaging the educational process," sa id Allen . " We
have to stack the deck heavil y in the filii and winter to absorb
the eas ing off in the spr·ing ."
"Som e of us got to wondering if we went on to ea rly semester
system, then there may be less reason to drop ou t Spring
quarter ," said Youtz.
Other arguments were that the semester system would allow
more time for actual t eac hing, reduce seminar sizes during the
fall , improve the year-long programs, redu ce the registrar's
worklQad by one-third and make for more coherent curriculum
·planning. Arguments against the switch included: student
resi stance, more difficulty in planning for a course, (especially
a coordinated studies) and obvious difficulties with course
" When we got right down to it, for every good reason for
shifting, others could come up with equally good reasons not
to, " Youtz stated.
Perhaps the most compelling argument is Woodbury's : " I
think that Evergreen has enough problems being different. if
we switched. we'd stick out like a sore thumb . It would almost
seem that Evergreen had a compulsion to be different. We
would be going out of our way to be different just when we're
getting accepted by the rest of the state."

males . Of all the spec ies of whales currently exploited for commercial profit, the
sperm wha le comprises ove r forty per ce nt
of the total kill.
Whaling ships from Japan and the
U .S.S .R. account for more than eight-five
per cent of the annual wha le kill . AIthoug~ both nations belong to the I nternational Whaling Commission (IWC),
Japan and Ru ss ia seem to ignore the recommend ations of thi s regulatory organi zat ion. The Scientific Commit tee of t he
IWC has suggested a complete halt to the
killing o f sperm whales, but Japan and
Russ ia have continued the ir hunt.
Th e prospec t of monetary ga in has apparently d iss uaded w haling coun tri es from
yie ldin g to the pressures appli ed by
Greenpeace and other environmenta l protection groups. The Russian s had annou nced thei r intentions to stop whaling
in 1':181. A press release from the Tass
news agency claimed that th ree large
factory ships wou ld be converted to fish
processing plants, and that on ly aboriginal
whaling by the native people of the Far
North regions would remain .

However, the U.s.S .R. reneged on this
promise when a high level source in Moscow denied the initial statement pertain ing to the hunting ban. To compound this
frustrating situation, Greenpeace discovered that a large oceanic area, which the
Russian s had designated as mari ne
mammal refuge, has also turned out to be
prime naval and 11:1iss le testing zones.
In the time of Herman M elville's Mob y
Dick , the awesome, toothed maw of the
mi ghty sperm whal e inspired fear in the
hearts of the superstitious wha lers, and all
but the most fearless among them avoided t he sper m ~ hal e Today's whalers ,
equipped with rada r, so nar, and state-ofthe-art harpoon cannon s, need not fear

EYergreen may soon be faced with a
problem it is unaccustomed to: more persons may want to enroll here next fall
than the college budget can support.
"The deans are particularly sens itive to
matching the student population to the
resources of the faculty and to the design
of the programs," said Larry Stenberg, Enrollment Coordinator. "Because of the
complex and delicate funding base that
the college must function with , it's important that we protect 'against underenrollment and, for the first time in severa l
years, overenrollment."
College offic ials have developed a flexibl e enrollment policy to deal w ith the
problem of overenrollment. When 90-95%
of the total student population has been
admitted for fall quarter (expected before
mid-August), the remaining applicants will
be put on waiting lists. Priorities to fill the
final 5-10% will go to Third World individuals, older returning students and
direct entrants from southwest Washington high schools.
The priority policy follows the goals of
the co llege stated in its marketing plan:
"To establish, by 1985, an entering class
drawn from a variety of sources but balanced in such a way as to guarantee diversity in a student body ... " and "To
ach ieve proportionate or greater growth
of Third World and women students in
each of our marketing segments."
"We recognize that, with the kind of
educational programs at Evergreen, the
more diverse the representation of students, the better the prospect will be for
sp irited, exciting seminars and educational
dialogue, " Stenberg said to explain the
reasoni ng behind the priorities.
The demographic profile of the applicants admitted prior to the 90-95% cut- off will be revi ewed in mid-August to determine which targeted categories are

An initi ative currently in circul ation
wou ld require voter approval for the funding o f Washington Publi c Power Supply
Sys tem's (WPPSS) five nuclear plants.
The official ballot title reads "Shall

or acqu isition of major publi c energy
Accord ing to Kei th Eisner, Thurston
County co-ordinator for the signature
drive, " If Initiative-394 is passed, it will
give voters the opportunity to vote on the
financing of public power projects. " The
initiative only pertains to public energy
projects that would be capable of generating electricity in an amount greater than
250 megawatts.
"1-394 mainly applies to nuclear plants
or major coal facilities, " said lohno
Stocks, SW regional coordinator for the
drive. There are no damable rivers left in
the state capable of generating 250 megawatts of electricity
It's uncertain what effect the initiative
will have on the five nuclear plants now
under construction . Stocks said it may
stop construction on 4 and 5, but he
thinks 1, 2, and 3 will probably not be
WPPSS is a consortium of state publi c
utilities organized in 1857. It has the
authority to construct/purchase and operate facil iti es for the generation of electric
WPPSS rai ses money for its projects by
sellin g tax exempt bonds. In a me moran-

dum to Washington State ratepayers, Senator KlIlg Lyse n (D-Sea ttl e) argued " Regard less o f whether the pl ants work part time or work poorl y, the debt w ill have to
be paid o ff through ratepayers' monthly
power bill s. The bond agreements state
th at ratepayers' monthly power bill s can
and wi 11 be ad ju sted to cover the cost of
the pl ants ."
" The five nuclear pl ants were expected
to cost $4. '1 b illi on," Lysen sa id, " but the
latest estimate is $19 billi on and still
ri sing."

Initi ative coordinator Johno Stocks sa id
'The thrust of 1-394 is not to shut the
11uclear plants down . If the public endorses all 5 nuclear plants , then they will
have to be built. But if the public decides
they don't need all five, they have the
option of keeping three, scraping two;
keeping two scraping three or w hatever."
The public relations office for WPPSS
declined to comment when asked what its
position is on 1-394.
Jim Boldt, lobbyist for The Washington
Public Utilities Department Association
(PUD) said, " PUD has no official position
on 1-394, but if we did take a stand we
would oppose it. " Boldt believes the
initiative is an attack on WPPSS. " If it
passes, I think it will close down all five
nuclear plants, " he said.
Supporters of 1-394 have periodically
been gathering signatures here at Evergreen . Emily Nelson,' TESC staff member,
has been helping on the signature drive.
" If anyone is interested in helping with
the campaign ," Nelson said, "get in touch
with me."

lacking in representation. Only the students in those under-represented categories will be accepted to meet the marketing goals.
I f SOrTie categories are sti II not adequately filled by the end of th.e summer,
the college will admit the students off of
the waiting li sts in a first-come; firstserved manner.
The forecast for enrollment for the fall
is unpredictable because both the increase in tuition and the possible cut-back
in federal grants and other assistance may
adversely affect Evergreen's application
pool. On the other hand, the fact that
three of the state's four-year colleges have
decided not to accept applications from
high sc hool students may mean more high
schoo l seniors will apply to Evergreen.
The forecast for Third World and older,
mid-career entrants is even more in question .
" We just don't know how the variab les
may inflate our applicant pool ," said Stenberg. "What's going to happen to the
BEOG program is in question . We're hopeful that the new administration will soften
its stand on cutbacks ." Less federal assistance to students would probably mean
that fewer Third World persons could
afford college education, though the cutbacks would also affect enrollment in
other categories.
"The institution looks like it may be
faced with a nice problem: more students
than programs," said Stenberg. What this
means to cu rrent students is that they
should review program offerings now and
register early to insure a place in the program of their choice. The coll ege expects
more applica nts than it can handle, meaning more competition for popular programs. Stenberg sug'gests that students see
the catalogl.le, talk with an advisor and
take advantage of ea rly enrollment. Otherwise, next fall , they may find that entering
students have beaten them to it.

Another alternative wou ld be to install
the whirlpool now kept in storage, into
the women's locker room . Combined with
the "switch" option, it is a possible, but
temporary answer to the problem. Insta lling the whirlpool would be considerably less expensive than renovating the
women's sauna, which is about half the
size of the men's .
Steilberg, who worked at the UW before coming to Evergreen, explained the
logic of the " 70-30" idea. " When the recreation center was first designed , we
cou ldn' t even get women to use the facilities [at the UWJ. The design was appropri ate then," he said.
The group which has the authority to
make the "switch" of locker rooms consists of Steilberg" David Wall bam, of fac il ities, Ri chard Schwartz, Vice Presid ent for

At present there are no plans to resolve the problem. But, as Stei lberg put

Dear Editor, .
Concerning the political power of the
indiVidual-Many of us seem concerned
about a lot of different political issues.
Some are local concerns, ie. bicycle safety, others are more removed, such as the .
EI Salvador crisis. I fear that though many
of us have such concerns, very few of us
act upon them.
In every issue we do have political
power as individuals. This power lies in
writing to our representatives,or in sup. pplting the organizations of our interests.
These are effective.

those who have the real power-.

At eight seconds past 8: 16 the Little Boy exploded. Fifty-one seconds
previously it had been dropped from the bomb bay of the Enola Gay at a
height of almost six miles . The three B-29s-the bomb carrier itself and the
two observation planes-had turned sharply, as their pilots had been trained
to do, and had fled the scene of imminent disaster .
The explosion occurred at a height of 1,850 feet and less than 200 yards
from t~e target point, the T-shaped Aioi Bridge that spanned the widest of the
seven streams.
The huge fireball that. formed afterwards possessed, for a fraction of a
second, a temperature of a million degrees . To many of the people who saw
it, the fireball looked like a tremendous bluish white flash that blazed for about three seconds . The Little Boy had relea sed the equivalent of 13,500 tons
of TNT over the center of the City.

WPPSS Costs May
Reach $200 Billion

by Bi II Montague
The Reagan administration's decision to
increase U.s. military involvement in EI
Salvador is a direct result of former President Carter's policy towards the leftist
opposition in that country, according"to a
dissent paPer prepared by officials of the
CiA, the State and Defense Departments
and the National Security Council.
The paper, which was drawn up in the
last days of President Carters term in
office, presents a startling picture of an
administration deeply divided on the question of how to deal with the struggle between the US backed Duarte regime and
the leftist revolutionary movement seeking
to overthrow it.
Dissent memos are com mon in Washington . They function as minority reportspresenting alternatives to official policy.
They were particularly common during
the early days of the Vietnam War, a fact
New York Times co luminist Anthony
Lewi s was qui ck to take note of . The EI
Salvador memo, he wrote on December
10, " might be a dissenting document from
the early days of Ameri can involvement
in Vietnarn - something written by a CIA
analyst in . say, 1%4."
The document, which is being reprinted
and distributed by the Committee in Soli darity with the People of EI Salvador
(Ci SPES), states that ' our act ions and our
words have narrowed down our policy
options to a si ngle path of gradual escalation of direct military involvement .. .
within a political contex t that gives the
use o f for ce few chances to ac hi eve a
satis f actory outcome."
Ac cording to the pap, 'r, prf'pilfat ions
for some sort of militar\ action in ~I Sa lvador begJn even before Pre~ id('nt Ca rt er

') llliIlOl.s ly, prepard tion s for artd cks upon
" ,uppl y lin es of ",uerri ll a forces in Cubil
and Nicaragua."
The paper also outlines steps takpn by
thE' Carter admini st ration to " in crt'ase
communildtions and coo peration among
thE' d[med for( ('s and paramilit ary organi Lat, on s in ... EI Salvador." Such lllE'asurE'S

The dissent paper notes that press
COV('rLlge of the situation in EI Salvador

their rdorm and counter-insurgency program, I he land di stribution effort has

TIl(' memo also states th at a sizea bl e

" Ipporh th ... opposition Democrati c Rev(l·
lulilll'dry Front [rOR), that U.S. econom,.

fulu,, ' " Neither the government or the
lllilil ," Y. " it charg<'\ " have been able to

demonstrate their w ill or abi lity to avoid
indi scriminate repression ..
US claims that the FOR is receiving
sizable support from Soviet bloc countries
have been overblown, the memo warns "Cuban and Soviet bloc domestic , political and economi c difficulties . severely
limit their ability to make new and potentially co stly economic and political commitment . Neither Cuba nor its Soviet bloc
back<'rs are capable .. of displacing the
as the region's major aid donor and
trade partner." Signifi cant military intervention by the U.S, states the memo,
" would open more opportunities for Cuba
in CE'ntral America and the Caribbean ."


U.S. policy towards EI Salvador is isolating us 'from other Latin American countries which support the FOR, the memo
concludes . It cautions that any attempt to
petsuade neighboring countries, such as
Honduras or Guatemala, to intervene in
EI Salvador, could lead to a resurgence of
guerrilla activity in those countries . Even
democratic governments like Venezuela'S,
the memo warns, who are sympathetic to
the Christian Democratic element in the
Salvadorian jun.ta, are faced with strong
domestic opposition to their support for
US policy.
The dissent paper proposes several alternatives to current policy in Central
America . The primary suggestion is for the
United States to initiate, either by itself or
through interested third parties such as
Mexico, negotiations with the FOR aimed
at achieving a "Zimbabwe type transitional arrangement."
The term "Zimbabwe arrangement" refers to the seltlemeot of the Rhodesian
civil war negotiated between the white
supremacist regime of Ian Smith and
black nationalists led by Robert Mugabe.
\Jnder the terms of the settlement, control
of the government and the armed forces
was transfered from Smith to Mugabe
over a two year period, with the Smith
faction retaining a guaranteed number of
seats in the national parliament. Such a
solution to the Salvadorian struggle, the
memo states, is gaining creden ce with
both the FOR and the military-civilian
Short of immediate negotiations, the
memo advocates: recognition of the FOR
as a legitimate force in Salvadorian politi cs, the sepa ration of US. interests from
those elements within the junta and the
armed forces responsible for terrorist activities, restraining neighboring countr ies
from in terven ing in EI Salvador, and encou rag ing "appropriate, objec tive and
pluralistic media coverage" of Central
Ame ri can affairs.

Senator King Lysen's report on the astronomical cost of nuclear power probably
won't raise many eyebrows down at the
Legislature. Nor, says Lysen, is Governor
John Spellman likely to look askance at
the $200 billion total cost of WPPSS.

The Politics
of Energy

All you students who have been drifting
aimlessly, waiting for the summer catalog,
trying to decide whether to spend your
summer on the Riviera or in calculus
class, unsure whether there would even be
a summer quarter this year .. take hope
There will indeed be a summer quarter.
" We will have a summer school," said
Dean John Perkins. " It will be a small and
very spartanly funded . But we will have a
su mmer school and I think it will be a
good one."
A list of 35 summer programs has been
drafted which features a variety of course
offerings from literature studies and envirrmmental history , to a visual anthropology course focusing on Mt St. Helens .
A portion of the graduate MPA program
wi ll also be offered.
According to Perkins, there has been
some question as to whether Evergreen
would be able to offer a summer program
this year. The college has been waiting to
see if the state legislature would allocate
enough money to finance a summer curriculum.
" We have a severe budgetar.y problem
which is giving us fits because we don't
know what they're going to give us ," said
Perkin s. " Spellman's budgPt gave us $177, 231. .That purchases somewhere between
22-23 faculty members (FTEs) ."
The Senate has cut that figure to $157,844-a cut that will force the college to
drop several of the proposed summer
course offerings if that version of the
budget is approved. in the legislature.
"That's $20,000 less . That hurts ," sa id
Perkins . "We're delighted to have $157,000
- it's better than zero; but we'd like to
have the $177,000."
"The other problem in the budget, "
cont inued Perkins, " is that last year we
had support cost of around $14,000. This
year we expect $3,665 if the Senate version is approved. The Spellman budget
gave us $4,116."
The cuts will force the coll eg~ to make
summer quarter a tight one. The support
funds proposed by the Senate allocates
appraximately $6.88 per student.
" The programs will be stringently
funded ," said Perkins. "Essentially they'll
get enough to xerox the syllabus ... not
even xerox . It's enough to mimeograph
the syllabus."
'The college doesn't want to release the
summer catalog until the budget is finally
approved. According to Perkins, the catalog will come out sometime during the
first week in May.
