Thomas T Handy, Jourth Army commander, yesterday c»ll«i upon America to back up 1U convictions "with realism anrl »trength" through immediate enactment of selective service and Universal Military Training laws. "By action on these measures nor," Handy (old Little Rock business me'n in an army week aci- dreis, "we have nothing to lose . . and everything to sain—in money, in time, possibly in lives and even in the very future of our country and our way of life." Handy pointed out that the United States cannot turn i^s back upon world leadership or foreign aggrcs- »ors by staying militarily weak. "A wealthy city with a weak police force L? an Invitation io thieves." he declared.

According to recruiting service records, the Army has 542.000 men In uniform and expects to lose 226,- OOD through separations during the next fiscal year. Handy estimated thnt Die Army »nd Air Force together would have to recruit 30.00D men a month to overcome this deficit in order to maintain the strength set by Congress last year.

"Universal Military Training, on the otherhand," he said, "is n long range program."

New Use Found For Submarines; Launching Platform for Missiles By Frank II. llartholnmcw (United Press Stuff Correspondent) PEARL, HARBOR, Apri! 10, <UPj —American submarines arc capable of development alone; entirely new Hues as weapons of warfare, Admiral D. C. riiimscy told the United I j re5s yesterday. The submarine may now be envisaged as n floating platform for guided missiles capable. Ramsey said, of effecting a silent nnder-scn approach to mi enemy coastline | under cover of night. It could then surface and bom- I bard Inland targets (and missile i ranges arc constantly Increasing) | with the buzz bomb or Its still more powerful supersonic successor, the V-2, directed in 'light by the night seeing eye of radar.

Alaska, nnd Hawaii. He refused to specify the arens in which they had been sighted. "We naturally investigate all such reports carefully," Ramsey sold, "nny nation hns a right to operate any vessels in any sea as far a.s we lire concci'uert, provided they stay oulslcle the limit of our terrl- i torial waters, keep out of restricted arcns and tnkc no belligerent ae• tion.

There Is nn indication that the submarines off pearl Harbor are operating on training cruises and other missions now in all parts of the Pacific, although the Admiral docs not sny so. Tlie radio-guided rocket and the submarine arc a lethal combination from every standpoint, Ramsey sale]. There Is no recoil to the ! firing of a guided missile, and a submarine could be a suitable Snaktt Go Astray PHILADELPHIA, April 10. (UP) — If »nyone finds 60 snakes lyln? around somewhere between here and New Orleans will they return them to the Philadelphia Zoo? Zoo Curator Roger Conant said he captured the snake* In the Louisiana Bayous recently and shipped tliem by train from New Orlean.-,. They should have reached here Tuesday. launching platform. Ramsey refused to (jive any data on navy rocket 'experiments. "However," he said, "the V-2 was being fired up to 275 miles by the time World War' II ended Last month at White Sands (N. M.) a rocket was fired 18 miles straight, up and uttained a speed of 3,000 miles per hour." Tells of K*perlmenfx Has the V-2 rocket been fired from submarines? The brown-eyed Naval boss smilingly conveys the impression that perhaps there Is already a more effective type of guided missile than the supersonic V-2. "We are doing certain experimentation with other types of guided missile*," he said. The question as to whether any submarine In the world could carrj and project an atomic bomb goes not only unanswered but unasked. The atomic bomb is on the sirici security list at I'carl Harbor, particularly while tests similar to those of Bikini are believed to be underway at Eniwctok, 3,356 miles to me East.
