TTTO ILTTHEVTLTJE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, AUGUST 11, 194f General Says Russia Forced B36 Aims WASHINGTON. Aug. 11. M 1 )—All Air Force general said yesterday that Russia's sudden blockade of Berlin last summer had a strong Influence on decisions to carry out the B-36 bomber program. MaJ. Gen, Frederick H. Smith. Air Force i-equirments chief, returned to the witness stand [or his second day before the Armed Services Committee, it I* investigating the history of the giant slx-cngincd bomber. Smith told this story: In April, 1948. there wss "considerable difference ol opinion" In the air staff as to the virtue of the B-36. Gen. George C. Kenney, then chief of the strategic air command, preferred refueling medium bombers for long range mlsslo 1 and hart proposed using the B-36 as a tanker Instead of a bomber. During that month, however, an early model B-36 made n «900 mile flight carrying a simulated 10.000- pound bomb load. In May, It flew another hng mission with the heavy load, covering 8.062 miles In 36 hours. Smith said Hie majority of potential enemy target.* would have been within this range, "the performance was encouraging." he said In June, he continued. Air Secretary Symington railed a meeting of air Jorce commanders and technicians to review the entire B-36 program. Symington had seen B-3(!< flown a't (he consolidated Vnllee aircraft plant In Fort Worth. Texas, not long before, and had been impressed by performance records. As the June meeting started, the Berlin air)'" was being put into operation by the Air Force, Gen. Smith said, and Gen. Lucius D Clay. u. S. Commander In Berlin, "took a most serious view of the situation." "After Review, the decision >vas clearly In favor of carrying out Ihe full B-35 contract," Smith said. Those at the meeting, he said, decided It would not be wise to drop the program and lose the industrial potential of the covern- ment owned Fort Worth plant. "Just when new production miracles might be demanded, as (hey were after Pearl Harbor," Smith added. Threat of Spanking Ends Fatally for Young Girl TORT SMITH. Ark.. Aug. 11.
