A-6-INDEPENDENT (AM) PRESS-TELEGRAM (PM) ·ith, cilll., Tliurt., Jin. 1), IMJ Zumwalt says U.S. ._ -- _ -j BAKERSFIELD (UPI) - Retired Adm. Elmo Zumwalt Jr. said Wednesday that the United States had negotiated away its naval superiority to the Soviet Union. "We have negotiated away our advantages of arms supremacy," he said. "No longer is Russia an inferior maritime power but superior in almost every way." Zumwalt, chief of naval operations prior to his retirement last July, spoke at the Kern County Business Outlook Conference. He said much Navy weaponry has been obsolete since 1969. "It's important that the United States maintain supremacy of the seas because we are dependent on imports for much of our basic security." he said. Zumwalt, who recently began teaching in the graduate s c h o o l of management at Vanderbilt University, also attacked critics of the defense . budget and said that in terms of real dollars the defense budget was lower than any year since 1950.

Schlesinger also said a ' continuation of p r e s e n t · military spending trends '. could lead to an upsetting · of the worldwide military ; balance. In a prelude to an expected record U.S. military budget of about $93 billion, Schlesinger denied t h a t U.S. outlays were bloated. But he did acknowledge the d e f e n s e budget was inflated along with the rest of the U.S. economy. H O W E V E R , Schlesinger said in a speech prepared for the Economic 'Club of New York, the Department of Defense "has almost been cut in half since the Vietnam high." The Army and the Navy have been cut in half, Schlesinger said. Meanwhile, he said the Russians have increased their expenditures steadi- Iv. "Today, according to t h e l a t e s t C I A d o l l a r projections, w h i c h I believe to be understated if anything, the Soviet Union is outspending the United States on defense by 20 per cent," he said, adding that the gap would be 25 per cent if the cost of U.S. military pensions w e r e dropped out of the figures. "A continuation of the present trend implies the upsetting of the military equilibrium," Schlesinger said. "We would then have little opportunity to ponder the advantages of 'come home America;' it would be a fait accompli. " U n l e s s we are prepared to defend portions of the world lying outside of N o r t h America, we shall soon find ourselves w i t h nothing else but North America to defend. "Under those c i r c u m stances ... the portion of national effort going to defense w o u l d increase dramatically rather than diminish. " C o n s e q u e n t l y , I believe t h a t we have no satisfactory alternatives but continue to maintain the forces necessary to sustain a world-wide military balance." VANDENBERG A F B ( U P I ) -- An e a r t h resources satellite, hailed as the prototype of the most useful spacecraft .yet dev i s e d , w a s l a u n c h e d Wednesday to join a sister ship scanning every Pjr- lion of the globe with cameras and sensors. The 1,165-pound LAND- SAT 2, was lifted on a Delta rocket into a 570- mile high orbit to report on the w o r l d ' s environment and its resources f r o m a g r i c u l t u r e t o minerals and marine life. A N A S A s p o k e s m a n said the launch "looked fine, just fine." The spokesman s a i d preliminary calculations showed the satellite had an apogee or high point of 568 miles and a perigee of 561 miles. The inclination of the vehicle was 99 degrees, he said, adding, "It looks very good." LANDSAT 2 took off over the South Pacific, crossed Antarctica and began a course over the Indian Ocean, Egypt, the Mediterannean, e a s t e r n Europe and the Arctic before swinging down again over the Pacific. Its permanent trajectories will bring its instruments to bear on all parts of t h e w o r l d every 18 days. NASA Director James C. F l e t c h e r said the spaceships would provide new insight into man's ef- f o r t s to m a n a g e his limited resources. ' LANDSAT. 2 joined a another resource satellite which has been in orbit for 2 1-2 years and has radioed back more than 100,000 pictures. Its images have been u s e f u l in agriculture, range resources, environment, forestry, geology; l a n d u s e , m a r i n e resources, w e a t h e r and water resources.

On Capitol H i l l , questions were immediately raised as to whether the administration w a s seeking to thwart a congres-' sional mandate cutting off - arms sales to Turkey on : Feb. 5. Such a m o t i v e was d e n i e d by department officials, but it was appar- . ent that the administration's move had reopened the controversial issue. A g r o u p of senators and representatives have been attempting to block military assistance to Turkey since t h a t nation's invasion of Cyprus last July. THE D E F E N S E Dep a r t m e n t n o t i f i c a t i o n ···· came in a letter Jan. 15 to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee stating t h a t the United States ' planned to sell ?230 million worth of kits to modernize 885 M-48 tanks in the Turkish forces. A copy of the letter was placed in Wednesday's Congressional Record by Sen. John J. ; Sparkman, D - A i a . , committee chairman. The Pentagon also gave ' notice that it planned to ; sell Israel $46 million in * missiles and launchers, '':· presumably the new TOW antitank missile. '' The notifications were i provided u n d e r a new * amendment to military* nlA I n r r i c I a f t A n cnrincfir^n ' by Sen. Gaylord Nelson, 1 D-Wis., requiring the DC- t fensc Department ( ,o in- J form Congress in advance I of all f o r e i g n military ·" sales exceeding $25 million. Under t h e amend- "~mcnJ, Congress then has 20 days in which it can veto the proposed sale. In the case of the proposed sale to Turkey, the deadline for a congressional veto would fall on Feb. 4. Thai is the day before the congressional cutoff on arms sales to Turkey. o o S P I C I O N was immediately aroused among congressional advocates of a ban on military aid to Turkey, therefore, t h a t t h e administration w a s trying to arrange a large arms sale to the Turks just before the deadline. Sen. Thomas 0. Eagleton. D - M o . , s e n t a l e t t e r Wednesday to Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger seeking clarification of w h e t h e r t h e administration would proceed with delivery of the tank parts after Feb. 5 on the ground that the sale had been approved before the cutoff date. Policy-making Defense Department o f f i c i a l s insisted that the notification was of "a preliminary nature" and that there was no intention of providing the tank parts to Turkey if the embargo on arms shipments was not lifted after Feb. 5, either by the President or by Congress. These officials also said it was doubtful that a contract for the sale of the military equipment could be entered i n t o before Feb. 5.
