There, they hiked to the bottom a n d back up, a jaunt of some 18 miles. "At the bottom," Storms said, "the temperature was 120 degrees."

U.S. OFFICERS Say Planes Won't Go Out Of Date SAN DIEGO, Calif. (API-Officers of the three armed services have assured the aircraft industry that rackets and automatically guided craft cannot nuke piloted planes obsolete. New kinds of low-flyini. tow- speed planes with men at the controls are among the need* for future defense, they said. Addressing the Institute of Aeronautical Sciences, Vice Adm. R.B. Pirie said Monday the Navy is counting upon manned planes to help it move quickly during small crises. This, he said, is a good method of preventing little crises from becoming big ones calling for nuclear war. Maj. Gen. Bruce K. Holloway, director of Air Force operational requirements, said he envisioned a piloted plane with the ability to take off and land on a runway 2,000 to 3,000 feet long which could carry a nuclear warhead. Lt. Gen. Arthur G. Trudeau, chief of research and development for the Army, told the group the Soviet Union has a missile that can be moved on trucks or railroad cars and has a range of about 1,500 miles. Such a missile setup could be brought secretly into Cuba and, if used against this country, could blast cities such as Houston and New Orleans with great effectiveness, Trudeau said.
