But it Is -- again like money -- pretty far ahead of what is in second place, we hope. SAC contends that U is far out In front in the arms race, the ''balance of terror," or whatever you prefer to call the weapons production dual between Ihe United States and Russia. The huge missile - l»mber command uses weapons ranging from the gleaming revolv ers issued to its spil-and-polisl security guards to the huge B 62 Bombers. A NUMBER OF these lumbers are constantly on airborne alert, an innovation of 1361 which was thoroughly proven during the 19G2 "Cuban crisis." The SAC people keep their orces dispersed, too. This dis^officer related. "He decided persal can be increased during'wanled to sec how well the bom- eriods of tension.

SAC feels it can get its alert bombers off Urn ground ,ime to avoid an ICBM attack, irom a submarine a hundred miles off shore -- or from Cuba -- would probably get a portion of the bombers.

They must come from he president, as commander - in chief of the Armed Forces of the United States. There are, (lie Air Force ·nys, several separate actions vhich separate crew members of a bomber must perform be- jre the nuclear weapons aboard can be armed. It is not possible for one man In fire a missile or drop a bomb. The Air Force says that a crew could. Iheorctically, muti ny and conspire to drop a bomb. But stiff psychological testing and constant scrutiny up and down the line make ihis an infinitely small risk, the Air Force says. * * * TO maintain command during i attack, SAC has several ad- itional command posts dotted round the United States, in ad- ilion to the main one at Offutt. "here Is also a airborne com- nand post, fully capable of run ning SAC's part of World War III. "It has been airborne'artnini (he clock since February of 1961," a spokesman said proud ly. There are several planes, and each nf them, with n gene ral officer and a full "battle s t a f f " aboard, flics an eight hour tour. Before one is permi ted to land, the replacement must be in the air. This bomber is, in the words of one Air Force man, the "newest and sexiest" in the Strategic Air Command's aircraft inventory. It is the B-58 Hustler, some of which are based at Little Rock, Ark. The Hustler will, the Air Force says, exceed 1,300 miles per hour in level flight. This is more than twice the speed of sound. II carries a three-man crew and an atomic payload. The Hustler above was photographed during u night takeoff.
