IMC act of Marcn_3. W7 _ By Leslie H.Gelb (C) New York Timet Service Les Aspin Still Number One Senator To Apologize To Balzano ', (c) WaMngton Star ; WASHINGTON-A Senate subcommittee head says he intends to formally apologize to ACTION Director Michael Balzano for a letter he sent to the acency demanding to know if Balzano "is going to Vienna, Austria, accompanied by several female employes ..." ! Harley M. Dirks, chief of the Labor and Health, Education and Welfare subcommittee of the Senate Appropriations Committee, said Friday the language in the letter from the subcommittee to Balzano last week was "unfortunate." I In a tersely worded handwritten note, Dirks had requested that ACTION tell him if;it,were true that Balzano was going to Eturope with the women and if so, "what offi'.Sal functions will each staff member be performing." ; Balzano, 40, has been director of AC- TIOW--the agency which runs the Peace Corp;? and several domestic self-help program;S-since former President Nixon appointed him to the post in 1972. i ;Whe.n he received the letter Thursday, Balzano shot off a blistering reply to Appropriations Committee Chairman Sen. John L. McClellan, D-Ark., accusing the committee of "denigrating the role of wprking: women" by raising "insinuations" about women on the proposed trip. · THE TRIP, Balzano said, has been contemplated for a year. Its purpose is to attend an 88-nation conference in Vienna on ·"Volunteer Service as an Instrument for Mobilizing Human Resources for Development." He said the 7 women and 10 men attending from ACTION are "all professional employes who are either bilingual or multilingual." !' Dirks said Saturday he signed the letter |tb Balzano about the women employes aft- 'er a staff member received a telephone !c'all posing the question of Balzano's ac- tompaniment on the trip by "female em- .ployes." WASHINGTON-The United States has built more nuclear-powered attack submarines than the Russians in the last 10 years, contrary to the impression that has been conveyed to Congress by the Pentagon. Rep. Les Aspin, D-Wis., using data provided to him by the Pentagon, released figures Saturday that show the United States out-produced the Russians 48 to 42 since 1966 and 20 to 17 between 1971 and 1975. In testimony before congressional committees, Pentagon witnesses have portrayed growing Soviet superiority in the production of the nuclear-powered attack submarines by answering questions in terms of all Soviet nuclear-powered submarines. Thus, they tended to lump figures of Soviet nuclear attack submarines--that fire torpedoes and cruise missiles at other submarines and ships--with Soviet nuclear powered stratevic submarines -- that launch ballistic missiles against land targets. Thus, when Malone told a House committee this year that the Russians outbuilt the United States in "nuclear submarines" in 1974 by 10 to three and in 1975 by nine to two, he failed to distinguish between the two different kinds of submarines, according to Administration officials. However, only three of the 10 and only two of the nine were nuclear-powered attack submarines. * + * ASPIN ALSO released information from the Pentagon which shows that intelligence estimates of Soviet attack submarine building in the last few years have exaggerated Soviet production by about 300 per cent each year. The issues of accurate information and reliable projections go to the heart of the current and complicated debate on whether the Soviets are gaining naval superiority over the United States. It has also become a presidential campaign issue with former Gov. Ronald Reagan charging that President Ford has allowed the United States to become second best and with former Gov. Jimmy Carter indicating he would increase naval ship-building. The Aspin information follows previously secret information released by Sen. Patrick J. Leahy, D.?Vt., that showed that in the last 15 years the United States has built twice as many large surface combat ships as the Soviet Union. The Leahy information also ran counter to the picture being provided by top Pentagon officials of "adverse trends." in naval ship construction. Defense Secretary Donal H. Rumsfeld presented in congressional testimony charts showing that between 1965 and 1975 the Soviet Union produced 205 "major combatant" surface ships as against 165 by the United States. He kept classified, however, that most of these ships were under 3,000 tons, a size ship that the U.S. Navy has shunned for itself. Only later did Leahy manage to have this information declassified. Comparable information distinguishing between nuclear-powered attack submarines and ballistic missile submarines was also not given by the Pentagon to Con- According to information from Pentagon officials, the United States now has 65 nuclear-powered attack submarines com- gress. Only after the herings conducted by ^ wjth ^ for the ^^ Union Tnis j s congressional committees were complet- r n a d d i t i o n to an ever-declining Soviet ed did the Navy provide a breakdown on a classified basis.

Pentagon sources predict that by 1980, Soviet nuclear attack submarines will total between 89 and 135 as compared with 87 for the United States.
