McDonald Group May Reject Offer By PETER STARRETT The Committee Against Ringing Tucson with Titans yesterday was offered an opportunity to explain its case to local Air Force officers--in lieu of a presentation to an expert team from Washington--but indicated today it . may turn the offer down. o o o Col. William C . Bacon, commanding officer of the 303rd Bomb Wing and senior officer at Davis- Monthan Air Force Base, yesterday made the offer in a letter to Dr. James McDonald, University of Arizona physicist and chairman of the anti-ringing committee. Inthe letter, Bacon offered 1o Cost Factor Determines Pad Sites The Air Force puts the launch- j listen to McDonald's case on the Ing pads for its missiles near ex-1 dangers of atomic fallout from feting bases because the cost of going out into the desert and building a new area would be prohibitive. And in the event of war, the Air Force assumes the Soviet Union will hit population centers directly with missiles. A letter from Sen. Carl Hayden (D-Ariz) brought these comments among others from a general in the Air Force on the selection of missile sites. THE ISSUE AROSE when a group in Tucson--the Committee Against Ringing Tucson With Titans--asked that the Titan sites to be built here be placed east of the city. The committee's argument is that prevailing winds over Tucson are from the west. Missile sites can be expected to attract enemy fire and the resulting radioactive fallout will be blown by the wind. The letter from the Air Force 1o Hayden--which was forwarded to the Tucson Chamber of Commerce --did not argue to this point. It did say: "The planned location of Indi vidual missile sites at substantial enemy attack. The committee believes that the scheduled 18 Titan missiles to be located here should be placed downwind (east) of the city to lessen the chance that radioactive j fallout would be swept over the i city following an atomic attack on the launching sites. High Air Force officials had- agreed last week to send a team of missile experts here to discuss the matter with local leaders. The offer was withdrawn later, how-.; ever, on the grounds that several local groups had sent messages saying they have confidence in the Air Force to consider fallout dangers before locating the missiles. The exact locations have not been announced but there are indications they will be placed in a ring around the city in the same manner as they have been located around several other U.S. cities. McDonald said today he feels Bacon's offer of a hearing is "a j poor second" and "not basically. j_ I satisfactory" to the committee. He has sent a plea to the Air distances from Davis-Monthan and Tucson would contribute relatively minor additional blast. Force to reconsider sending the expert team here and the committee will make no decision on thermal and prompt radiation ef-1 Bacon's offer until it gets a deflects on the base and the city." And it said .that the Tucson area, because of Davis-Monthan AFB, is now a primary target. IN ADDITION to the fact that the Davis-Monthan facilities might be transferred from aircraft to missile purposes, Tucson is an attractive missile site because the surrounding terrain is ideal geologically. Four basic policies behind the selection of missile sites are given: 1--The primary task of the Air Force is to persuade the Soviets mite answer. Mayor Don Hummel, who originally asked that the expert team be sent here, said today he feels a hearing and discussion with Bacon would suit the purpose. McDonald expressed the position of the committee in this way: "We want a hearing wherein technical experts, fallout specialists and weapons people as well as people with some authority in deciding i site locations can hear cut techni- i In making his offer.
