THURSDAY. MARCH 7, 1968 I May Float § And Fire *·- F. Could Be Fired r By Submarine 1~ WASHINGTON (AP) _ Navy ~ engineers arc studying a possi- ~ble new generation of long:, range missiles that would be T: fJred while floating upright on « the ocean's surface like partial- ~j ly submerged bowling pins. ^ Pentagon sources said such a ~. missile would be released from Z n submarine and then fired by r remote control as it bobbed on ~ the surface. A weighted bottom -- would keep the missile from tip~ ping over. 2; Target information would be ~ fed into the missile's guidance ~~ system before it was released ~ from its submarine, sources I. said. I' The proposed new system ^ would be cheaper and simpler ~ than the Polaris submarine with -; its complicated mechanisms for ·-_ launching and firing missiles. ;_ The new weapons would have ~ a range of about 6,000 miles-- -· roughly twice that of the most ~ advanced current submarine". fired missite, the Poseidon. " This new approach is one *f t, four being kept on the back ^ burner for possible development ~ in the event the Soviet Union ~ achieves significantly greater ·^ accuracy with its interconti- ~ nental missiles and thus threat- T, ens the survivability of land- t_ based American missiles. CT The other approaches involve: ^ --Placing Poseidon missiles ^ on surface ships. ~~ --Mounting land-based inter- 1. continental ballistic missiles on "Z. trucks so they might be movec ^ about to foil a knockout blow. ^ --Creation of an entirely new ;- long-range, land-based missile ··; fired from a revolutionary type ~ of silo which would be specially ·~ concealed and protected. »· These concepts emerged from .-- a study project ordered by Sec~ retary of Defense Robert S. ~ McNamara in late 1966. Z Called Strat-X, the study's ob" jective was to examine "future ~ ballistic missile basing concepts ~ and missile performance char- ·· acteristics required to counter ^ potential Soviet strategic offen- ^ sive f»rces" and proliferation of ^ antimissile systems. '~ Of tiie four approaches, the ~ new submarine-launched mis- r. sile system and the proposed ex- ·7. tra-protected and concealed silo ~ were given a higher standing ~" than the surface ship missile -- plan and the truck-mounted IT- missiles. - Secretary of the Navy Paul R. ~ Ignatius spoke recently in gen- Z. eral terms of the proposed sub~ marine-launched system. ~ "These submarines would ." operate from U.S. ports," he ~ said. "As elements of the na-- tion's secure strategic offensive - forces they could maneuver I over large ocean areas remain- I ing continuously in range of tar- gets." ~ The double range over ad- -· vanced Polaris and Poseidon - missiles would infuiitely compli- - cate the Soviet problem of locat- ~ ing and destroying the subma- I rines which would launch the ~ missiles. 5 Mayor Spurs \ Strike Talks = At Detroit ~ DETROIT (UPI) -- Mayor ;; Jerome P. Cavanagh called ; ; striking Teamsters and the ,1 city's two newspapers into .1 meeting with state and federal " mediators because of the "vola ·· tile nature" of the city in the ;_· wake of last summer's riot. ; Cavanagh met with the principals .in the 112-day-oJd strike for one hour and 10 minutes in a conference room near the mayor's office. He called it a "verj constructive" session. "Besides the obvious enonom- ic consequences," Cavanagh said, "I also stressed the vol atile nature of the city at the present time and the fact that we must have the publication of daily newspapers to restore sanity and make sense out of the situation at the present time." Cavanagh said the striking Teamsters Local 372 and representatives of the Detroit News and the Detroit Free Pres T/ould meet again Thursday with both state and federal mediators. An observer from tile mayor 1 ! office will be present.
