In a lobby outside the world's most powerful laser here sits a waist-high statue of Shiva, a Hindu god capable both of world destruction and creation. The laser, like Shiva, has two very different sides: It may be used to help create new forms of hydrogen bombs, or new sources of energy for the 21st Century. Physicist John Nuckolls might well appreciate that paradox.

An angry John Nuckolls, director of Lawrence Livermore nuclear weapons laboratory, announced a "zero-tolerance" policy regarding illicit drugs after small amounts of cocaine and other drugs were stolen from a locked safe. The drugs were used to train the lab's drug-sniffing dog. Members of the security force are thought to be among the few people at the laboratory who had the safe's combination. Nuckolls vowed to institute random drug testing for the security force.

University of California President David P. Gardner has selected physicist John Nuckolls, an advocate of President Reagan's Strategic Defense Initiative, to head the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, one of the nation's two nuclear weapons design centers, sources close to the selection process said Tuesday. Nuckolls heads the laboratory's physics department, which oversaw development of some of the major concepts behind the controversial SDI program, informally known as "Star Wars."

The University of California will increase tuition for out-of-state residents by 10% to ease the effects of a state budget that UC President David P. Gardner on Thursday called "a formula for disaster." Tuition for out-of-state students will rise to $1,502 a quarter beginning this winter at eight UC campuses and to $2,553 a semester at UC Berkeley, which is on a two-term calendar. The increase is in addition to a 5% rise approved last year, which goes into effect this fall.

Energy Department officials acknowledged Wednesday that several types of nuclear warheads in the U.S. arsenal have been plagued by safety problems that could cause them to burst open and scatter radioactive cancer-causing debris over a wide area. The officials told the Senate Armed Services Committee that all the weapons are now safe, but that conclusion was undercut by testimony from the directors of the three national U.S. laboratories.

A list of five finalists to become director of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, one of the nation's two major nuclear weapons research facilities, has been submitted to University of California President David Gardner. The new director will replace Roger Batzel, 66, who is retiring after holding the post since 1971, nearly half the time that the facility has existed. An announcement of the choice could be made as early as March.
