AnnouncePlcm For ICBM Base In Wyoming WASHINGTON (UP) — The Defense Department announced i Thursday that it planned to build a huge missile base in Wyoming, apparently to fire the new Atlas intercontinental missile in case of war. It said construction of the 65- mi'lion dollar site would begin at Francis E. Warren Air Force Base, Cheyenne. Wyq., "during the middle part" of 1958. The Pentagon did not announce the purpose of the new missile site. But observers gathered from the wording of the announcement that it was intended as a launching base for the 5,500-mile range Atlas missile. The announcement said that 4,000 to 5.000 men would be needed "to operate the missile facility." It added that Air Training Command schools now located at the base would be transferred to other training command installations as construction on the base proceeded. The Pentagon said the Air Force Air Research and Development (ARDC) would take over the Warren base. It was expected to come under command jurisdiction of Maj. Gen. B.A, Schriever, commander of the ABDC's ballistic missil edviiison.
