U.S. Adding To Nation's Atom Might (Continued From Page One) ened firing silos, and the Navy's Poseidon successor to the Polariswhich can be launched by submarines beneath the sea. Sources have told The Associated Press the Minuteman III, A 6,300-mile-range missile, will carry three nuclear warheads, while the Poseidon will haul more than 10 warheads. SUBS CONVERTED The latest Air Force missile may eventually comprise 60 per cent of the land ICBM force. Thirty-one of the Navy's 41 Polaris subs are being converted to Poseidon, which requires a larger launch tube. These numbers make possible an adequate, if unofficial, projection of what the U.S. strategic missile force of the early 1970s will be. Sources say this is a fair picture: Air Force Minuteman III: 600 missiles, three warheads each, plus special packages of decoy warheads and penetration aids. Total 1,800 warheads. Air .Force Minuteman II: 400 missiles, one warhead each with decoys and "pen-aid' Total 400 warheads. Navy Poseidon: 31 submarines with 16 2,500-mile range Poseidons each, at least 10 warheads per missile. Total 4,960 warheads. Navy Polaris: 10 subs with 16 single-bomb missiles, Total 160 warheads. Grand total of land-based and submarine-launched warheads: 7,320. Sources regard this figure as conservative. According to this tabulation, more than 5,000 warheads' will be Navy weapons. This strategic shift to the oceans was forecast earlier this year by Paul H. Nitze, then secretary of the Navy, who informed Congress in January that "over half of the programmed U.S. ballistic missile re- entry vehicles will be sea-based." TITANS PHASED OUT The present U.S. missile force includes 1,000 Minuteman I and II, 656 Polaris missiles aboard 41 submarines and 54 aging, liq uid-fueled Titan lis which will be phased out in the next five years. McNamara's last official estimate of Soviet missiles listed 340 land-based ICBMs, plus 130 submarine-carried weapons. The Soviet subs must surface before 'launch, which makes them more susceptible to detec tion. An estimate issued recently by the British Institute for Stra tegic Studies gave the Soviet Union more than 400 land-based missiles at present. The private research group predicted this force will exceed 500 by next summer. No Break In College Deadlock (Continued From Page One) night at the IAM union hall in Benton Harbor, reportedly decided on some steps aimed at pressuring both the trustees and faculty to end the strike. A spokesman declined to outline the steps, but said the students felt they now must look out for themselves and aim what pressures they can bring to bear at both sides. A faculty spokesman this morning took particular exception to one statement in the so-called "white paper" issued Thursday by the trustees. He said the claim that the board's last salary proposal exceeds the recommendation of a fact finding report is not so. The board's offer on salary is clearly below the fact finder's recommendations, he asserted. The faculty spokesman also renewed the faculty's oft-repeated appeal for the board members to meet fact to face with the teachers negotiating team. Greg Longpre, a vice president of Pearson Construction Co., said his firm filed a charge of secondary boycott against the teachers union with the Detroit regional office of the NLRB Thursday, after the pickets appeared at the new campus. Construction remained at a halt today as union workmen there declined again to cross the picket line.
