This new carrier \voujd be of the 60,000-ton Forrestal class, a Washington dispatch to the News by Jerry Greene said. It would carry about one-third more planes than the largest present ships and—"with its little ball of Plutonium as fuel"—could remain Rt sea almost Indefinitely without refueling, the story said, adding: The Navy has asked Congress for one more big carrier per year for the next 10 years and. it was reported believes the atomic engine will be ready for the Job to be laid down In fiscal 1954. Regardless of what might happen hi tho way of appropriations and developments, the News was told, the carrier atomic engine will be ready for Installation not later than fiscal 1955. Present carriers admittedly can top 30 knots for a prolonged period and can go faster if they have to. But they require vast space tor fuel and have to be accompanied by fleet oilers. The atomic engine, with pluton- lum running a boiler to drive turbines, would save more than a third of the space in a conventional Bhip, eliminate the necessity for fleet oilers and furnish a vastly greater amount of power. possible enemy planes. This 2'1-hour vigil It necessary because "the Soviets have had the capability for some lime to attack us," MaJ. Oen. Frederic 11. Smith Jr., deputy directory of the Air Defense Command, told a Pent*, gon news conference. To which Ocn. Nathan P. Twining, acting chief of staff for the Air Force, added: "We can have no assurance of long-range forewarning of a decision by the Kremlin to attempt an assault on us. The lack of a thorough 2-1-hour watch Is a weakness we can no longer afford." Twining said intelllgenca estimates credit Russia with being capable of launching at any time more than 400 four-engine bombers loaded with enough bombs—atomic and otherwise—to blast all U.S. Metropolitan Industrial target areas. The start of "Operation Sky- walch" wnfi announced yesterday by the Defense Department after a conference of civil defense directors fionl nil states and territories. Smith estimated from 50 to 80 volunteers will be needed to man each of the thousands of posts. Their special job will be lo spot planes flying below 5,000 feet— those difficult to pick up on radar. The network of lookouts will be co-ordinated with the Canadian air defense program.
