This story, based on an Associated Press survey, details economic effects in many of the nation's industrial centers. By ELTON C. I AY ' WASHINGTON (API — The nation's military buildup for the war in Viet Nam is already having some economic effect in in-; creased production and pay roils, an Associated Press survey of industrial areas and defense buying policies showed today. | A Stratford, Conn., firm plans j to hire as maay as 500 additional workers to handle helicopter; contracts. Aerospace employ- j ment is up in the Los Angeles : area. A Rochester, N.Y., firm reports sales to government and 1 defense contractors "in strong vein." A Philadelphia firm re-, ports. "We already are feeling, this acceleration." These are aj few of the effects reported. | But. other areas report no step-up. The evidence still is too fragmentary to show what overall impact the war — already costing the United States S3 mil-, lion to $4 million a day — will i have on the American economy, i Certainly some of the production increase disclosed by checks around the country is the i result of the U.S. effort in Viet Nam, as well as a general military buildup. And Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara said Wednesday the Pentagon is. "preparing to gear up the production machine." * * * In Viet Nam, ammunition is being expended in increasing quantities. Aircraft, automotive equip m ent, communications ; sets, clothing and other items wear out from usage and must be replaced. But the Defense Department and many of the manufactures are unable or unwilling to say what portion of the daily spending rate is attributable to production needs for; Viet Nam. i One thing seemed certain: • Procurement of military goods ' is going to increase. McNamara, presenting the administration's request to Congress Wednesday for a $1.7-bil-; lion increase in the fiscal 1966 '• budget, gave that indication. He said his departfent hasn't had; sufficient time to prepare de-j tailed requirements and plans "for the additional materiel and facilities needed for the support of the expanding operations in Southeast Asia." A check shows the curious fact that while the war in Viet, i Nam grew more fierce in the j first six months of this year, i Pentagon expenditures for all types of procurement decreased from the same period a year ago. The January-June period this year saw expenditures totaling $5.6 billion, which com- i pared with $7.9 billion for the like period last year. : When asked why, spokesmen! suggested several factors in-; fluenced the trend, including the tapering off this year in pro-1 curement of Minuteman mis-i siles as that program neared completion and a slower rate of I spending for the Polaris missile i fleet, which also is beginning to | approach completion. It also seemed probable that McNamara's "cost effectiveness" campaign, in which he has been pressing for lower costs in production of items, may have held down the dollars spent for procurement. * * * There have, however, been indications of accelerated spend- i ing in recent weeks. These hints show up in batches of contracts announced daily. While the daily total of contracts announced is moderate or small — Wednesday's total! amounted to $62,677,092 — there j have been some outsize totals. ! On July 30. a long string of. contracts announced had a total! value of more than S245 million : — one of the largest in recent • times. ' What does industry say about the effects or non-effect of pro- i curement. in the first half of the year? The Associated Press survey brought a variety of responses from manufacturing centers, none of them showing dramatic, heavy impact, but a number showing moderate results of the military's buying. Among them were these: Philadelphia — Officials at; Boeing -Vertol recalled McNam- ] ara's announcement last, month that there would be a 100-per cent increase in helicopter pro-' duction and remarked. "We already are feeling this acceleration, requiring a 10 per cent increase in the number of em- ployes." On the other hand, a General Electric Co. spokesman in the area said there has been "nothing here at all which reflects the Viet Nam crisis" as far as this company is concerned. * * * Baltimore, Md., area —• The Bata Shoe Co. received a S2 million contract last week for 250.000 pairs of combat boots, possibly intended for use by forces in Viet Nam. 1 Detroit — The defense contract administration office for [the Detroit region reported it j ! has "noticed no step-up in the i i three months" since this office j was opened. Los Angeles ----- Aerospace employment, in the area increasedi 2,000 in May over the 274,0001 total for March. Douglas aircraft employment moved up to 55,000 from a 42,000 payroll eight months before. North American Aviation, Inc., has an $18-million contract for "counter-insurgency" aircraft, of the kind needed in Viet Nam. Pacific Airmotive, which overhauls cargo aircraft for fieight lines, said its business is up to $18 million from $12 million earlier in the year and that 95 per cent of this is due to requirements in Southeast Asia. Seattle, Wash. — Little impact is noted for the state of Washington. * * * ; Newport News, Va. — The! Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Co. is overhauling two of five ships which have been taken out of the James River| mothballed fleet of cargo typej vessels. But the work on the two! will be completed within the! next week or two. | Dallas, Tex. — Jake L. Ha- j mon, chairman of the National; Petroleum Council, said oil; companies will have to increase; the flow and attributed to a mil-' itary official a statement that; there has been a 300-per-cent j increase in oil use in the Asian' area within tour months. Ha- j mon said this meant that oil companies were being told they; should be ready to supply 300! per cent more oil in the next few months. ; Also in Dallas. Collins Radio Corp. reported, "We have noticed an increase in produc-, tion" on existing contracts for 1 aviation and ground communications equipment, "a moderate increase which we feel is connected with the Viet Nam buildup." * * * Fort Worth. Tex. — Bell Helicopter Co. reported two contracts in less than eight months for a total of 720 helicopters and "a production increase is obvious " Nashville. Tenn. -The Gene-! sco Co. reports large orders for jungle boots, an item popular with troops in Viet Nam's rice paddy fight ins:. Stratford. Conn. -- Lycomine Division of Avco Corp. at Stratford received a S45.2-million contract, mainly involving gas turbine engines for helicopters.' It has plans to hire as many as 500 more workers. Burlington. Vt. — The General Electric plant there reported i $16 million in defense contracts since Jan. 1 for manufacture of gun parts; employment since that i.iine has increased from 1, 100 to l.GOO workers — dollar totals and employment were described as well ahead of the pace for the first six months of last year. Rochester, N.Y. — Spokesmen for defense related firms said they have had no sudden calls for -.pcedups. Bui Eastman Kodak Co. reported sales to government and defense contractors "in strong vein," accounting for 12 per cent of total sales in the first half of 1965, compared with 9 per cent for the same period last year. Scott Aviation noted "increased activity in procurement channels of the Department of Defense." A spokesman remarked "t hey seem to be gearing themselves for increased procurement." New Yorker Leads in U.S. Chess Tourney SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico <AP) — Pai Benko, a grandmaster from New York, took the lead Wednesday in the U.S. Open Chess Championship Tournament with a total of eight points He defeated Bernard Zuckevman. another New Yorker, to take a half-point lead over Zuckerman and William Loinbardy. who defeated Duncan Suttles of Vancouver, B.C. Historical Objects Sought for Capitol LANSING i API—Historic objects are needed for display in the state capitol building in Lansing, says the Michigan Historical Society. George A. Osborn of Sault Ste. Marie, society president, announced the selection of a committee to serve as an advisory body to Gov. Goerge Romney on a project to acquire such objects.
