The ' big training base is already on an inactive statua with one military and 59 civilian caretakers whose jobs will be eliminated. The Army will keep about 1,000 acres for Army Reserve and National Guard training, lease 14,000 acres to the state and turn the remainder over to the General Services Administration by next July for sale. State officials, who already operate a youth training center on part of the base, have long wanted to acquire the entire reservation and regard the.clos­ ing as an opportunity to do so. Director Jacques LeRo'y of the Indiana . Youth Council said Thursday he and other agency heads -will meet-soon -to- consider steps- to be taken to obtain the property.

Hundreds Die From Typhoon MANILA (UPI) — A dying typhoon Louise left a heavy toTI of death and property damage as it blew itself out today in the central Philippines. Hundreds were feared killed by the storm. • National Police Headquarters announced that the death toll in .the province^ of Surigao del Norte alone had been placed at "100 to 200 people." .News sources reported that a compilation of casualties from other sections of the country showed another 62 fatalities. These included 39 killed in land slides and 17 in floods. , Surigao del Norte was the hardest hit area.- An estimated 100,000 persons were reported homeless there, and the police announcement said crop and property damages was expected to be extensive. .Typhoon Louise was downgraded by the^Manila Weather Bureau to the status of a tropi- caloatorm late, today: It hit peak winds- of 184 miles an hour Thursday.

The move reflects growing dependence on the solid - fuel Minuteman missile, the shrinking bomber fleet and diminishing concern about enemy bomber attacks on the United States. These shifts combined with modernized • business practices to make possible a reduction in tne Air Force's big system of depots for overall repair and supply.. . Air Force Cut The Air Force will:' —Eliminate 150 ballistic, missiles—all-of its -Atlas and half its Titan types —by next June 30. Annual savings — $116.9 million. : Close six major Strategic Air Command bases. Saving—$73.5 million. Shut down 16 Air Defense tegic Air Command bases and 13 installations in California alone. The 15 bases McNamara did not name are overseas and will be announcrd later. In making the list public. McNamara told a news conference his decisions are "absolutely, unequivocably, without qualification, irrevocable unless some new evidence is brought to our attention—and the chances of that are damned small." Anguished Reaction As SIcNamara predicted, reaction to the. base closing order was immediate and, in most last year, is operated for .the Command radar stations in 13 Army by the Tumpane Co. It has 253 employes but 47 of them already have been since September. ^ An Air Force Radar Station at Rockville also is to be closed by July, 1966, with that property also to be sold. The station.has 12 civilian employes and 121 military personnel on duty. The new jobs will result from an expansion of Bunker Hill Air Force Base near Peru. The expansion will result from phasing out of Schilling AFB, Salina, Kan., and Truax AFB, Madison, Wis. - states and also close some training and air transport facilities. Saving—$72.4 million. Close out three depot operations. Saving—$86 million.' These actions total $348.8 million in estimated annual savings. The Air Force also is expected to account for a goodly share of the $37.9 in savings from closing overseas bases which will be announced later. The ballistic missiles to be taken down arc at 14 bases which McNamara estimated cost almost $1 million per year per. missile to operate compared with $100,000 a year-for Five KC135 jet tankers now stationed at Schijling are to be'the Minuteman missile, moved to Bunker Hill by next I Hold Same Number July and ia fighter-interceptor As a result oMhe missile ac- squadron will be transferred tion, the United' States by the from Truax by July, 1968.

J;;Mivlhg wte'mr The (Spring *v j'»?.'rtfpm «dJfc4 >M.:jKfr*tOpp^ years, i cases, anguished from congressmen in the 33 states where the defense chief's ax fell. "The President emphasized, j as had President Kennedy, that we wouldn't tolerate waste and he would accept whatever political criticism or pressure was associated with eliminating waste." McNamara s->id. As for President Johnson, he said it was "not just a coincidence" that he was getting out of Washington. He made the remark in jest shortly before leaving for his Texas ranch. The two schools of reaction to 'McNamara's action could be .„. jseen in a statement by Sen. million j Ricl!art[ B . Ru s S ell, D-Ga., chairman of the powerful Senate Armed Services Committee. Russell said he would "gladly support any action" by McNamara that "would reduce the staggering cost of the Department of Defense" — about $50 billion a year. "Totally Unjustified" But Russell said the closing of an air base in his state "is totally unjustified and I shall challenge the decision vigorously." McNamara needs the Russell committee's approval annually to operate the Pentagon. Eut the U. S. Chamber of Commerce was quick to point out that the reductions would.benefit the nation's economy. Chamber President Walter F. Carey told members in cities affected that he agreed with McNamara that private industry will take over work done by eliminated bases. He said: "Many communities have found greater prosperity by putting unneeded military installations to productive use under private enterprise, turning apparent misfortune into advantage." Congressional charges against McNamara's action included political manipulation, inability to judge the relative merits of the bases and keeping secret the reports on which the closings were based. . "Absolute baloney," said 'McNamara in replying to' one charge that the base closings were "cheap politics." He said it would have been impossible to announce the actions before the Nov. 3 election. Most Protest Of $477 million McNamara expects to save from the cuts, reductions in the Air Force program will. account for $348.8 million. But, the closing of the mammoth Brooklyn Navy Yard — expected to save $18.1 million a year —stirred the most controversy. McNamara said he would talk; to Sen.-elect. Robert F. Kennedy,;,;D-N.Yv, .arid other members- of the state delegation about .when the shipyard would be closed. \
