In this respect, the nuclear aircraft car* rier is an instrument of this policy.

Since the Enterprise has nuclear power, it has no smokestacks. a "gas-tight" envelope. When this has been done, and the crew has vanished to leave the flight deck looking as empty and strange as a big city on early Sunday morning, the ship can be washed down from top to .bottom by seawater. In effect, this would turn the carrier into an enormous fountain 1,123 feet long and 23 stories 'tall. Most of the fallout from the bomb would be washed overboard. Some, however, would remain, and before the Enterprise -could retaliate it would be carefully" inspected by crews carrying Geige'r counters who would mark out radioactive "hoi spots" on the flight deck. It wouldn't be long, however, before the carrier's planes would off. During the Caribbean drills, it took only 20 minutes from the time of the "attack" until the flight deck was declared sufficiently safe to begin launching preparations. If the Enterprise has nuclear capability, so does its top command. Each officer dealing with [lie nuclear plant was personally selected by Adm. Hyman L. Rick- over, the "father" of Navy nuclear power. This includes the Enterprise skipper, Capl. Vincent Paul De Poix, a trim, efficient man of 45 who served as a combat fighter jilot aboard the old Enterprise in :he South Pacific. He had to leal low nuclear propulsion operates before he took over. In charge of the reactor department is Cmdr. Daniel Brook who was skipper ot the Sargo, the third U. S. nuclear submarine.
