More than $12 billion of that-has actually been' paid out and the rest is committed, And much more will be needed in the years ahead, By 1965, without any raising of present goals, the United States will have 834 intercontinental ballistic missiles, most of them in h a r d-to-krtock-out underground sites, and 464 Polaris missiles in 29 atomic-powered submarines—a total of 1,298 long-range missiles.

Today there are Atlases operational at Vandenberg Air" Force Base,'Calif., Warren AFB, Cheyenne, Wyo., Offutt AFB, Omaha, Neb,, Fairchild AFB, Spokane, Wash., and Forbes AFB, Topeka, Kans. Another squadron at Warren AFB and the first squadron of Titans'at'Lowry AFB, Denver, Colo.,' 'ar.e'due by year end. - While the missile force is building up,, the big punch continues to be carried by the 1,465 jet bombers of the Strategic Air Command.

Justice Department men say too many things will iilve. ttf be proved. The evidence wilt be shadowy more often than n6t. But officials running the new nationwide drive on organized crime have a plan. They believe: —All organized crime — n a r- colics, prostitution, racketeering, extortion — depends on organized gambling for funds. 4 ' —Organized gambling .depends on interstate communications — by telephone, U.S. mail, telegraph, airplane, bus, train, automobile. , , Kicking hard at communications will hit gambling itself, says Edwyn Silberling,' the to«gh'; -experienced head of the Organized reasttns thftt if ,J*su hit' gambling hard you strike a ! ,tough blow at all organized erirrts! In cities, towns and counties all over the U.S. . ' ' That. blow hits extortion, bribery of public oficials ahd labor racketeering. It cuts the protection- for murderers and burglars. The Justice men therefore will use a variety of techniques to harass gamblers. , When a gambler'has a phone and'uses'it interstate, they will try to perstidade the phone company to take it outi When an interstate news wire service operates primarily f o r gamblers or other, racketeers, the Justice men will try to persuade the company, from whom t h e lines are leased, to cut the serv Uuie m«rt. botne ciri be discouraged from continuing; some \,.,i talk about their bosses to save themselves. A light watch is being kept for minor racketeers «nd messengers, other hoods who hnvfe gotten raw deal from the b i g shots. These men sometimes talk, if they find themselves in a bad spot with the law. • The Justice Department men believe that they have in the new laws, one way or another, quite d bevy of possibilities. It is illegal under federal law for a racketeer lo cross a stale ne in pursuit of his profession, oan sharks or gamblers will be reaking the federal law If they ring in strongarm men from out f state to enforce payment from ieir debtors.

With this assessment and other 'facts of military power in mind, the administration now has proclaimed, flatly and with illustra- ,,tiv e detail's that the United: States ,;has overwhelming nuclear super, iority. ' ' "' " "' ' That is America's short answer to Russia's "campaign of blackmail, multi - megaton explosions ...and Pacifies missile shots. V( It was gfven in a remarkable speech last' Saturday by Deputy Defense Secretary, Rbswell L. Gil-, patric to- a group of '.more than 100 corporation moguls as- •sembled at the stately Homstead Hotel in Hot -Springs, Va. The speech, approved by President Kennedy and Secretary of State Dean Rusk, was more rem- B58s. In another six months there will be 60 more B52s and 40 more B58s. Many of the B52s carry, besides their nuclear bombs, hound dog jet propelled missiles which have atomic warheads and can fly 500 miles after rele-as'e from their mother pianes. At the nation's $1 billion mis- •sile "shooting gallery" at Cape " iniscent of' former President Dwight D,, Eisenhower's final , State of the Union message than of the I960 Pemocratic platform. Eisenhower said the "missile gap" showed every sign of being a fiction, like the "bomber gap" some years before it, The Democratic platform had contended ". . .Our military position today is measured 'in gaps — missile^ gap, space gap, limited war gap." Lumping missiles, bombers, artillery and other vehicles, Gilpatric said the; United States has '"tens of thousands" of nuclear delivery vehicles and more" than one :' warhead .for each vehicle. He said that even ' after receiving a surprise nuclear .attack "American forces could .retaliate with af least; as : heavy a blow as, the So vietsf first onslaught; 'perhaps t g r e;a' t e r one. Self-destruction would be an aggressor's reward for attacking America, .he . said. The American . ballistic missil Canaveral, the "testing program on, early missiles is largely -com- 'pleted^.and the swing is to the new generation. These include the Titan II, the. longer range, faster- firing version of ,the Titan; the underground-launched Minuteman, which goes into service next summer, and the Skybolt bomber- launched missile slated for serv- ce in the rnid-60's. The Skybolt, to be used by both J..S. and British air forces, will lave a 1,000 - mile range and will vastly complicate Russia's missile defense problem, A B52 or Jritish Vuloan can carry four "kybolts. Tests on the longer-range Po- aris missiles also have started. In a closely related field, Gilpatric. said in his Hot Springs speech that planners were at work on "military uses of space." That could herald 'a renewed effort on military man-in-space projects. What many experts consider the early forerunner , of future man-in-space vehicles, the X15 rocket ship* is slated in a day or so for its most gruelling speed run to date- Air Force Maj. Robert White is to aim for •"* 4,100 miles an hour, the fir.,! man has exceeded the fantastic The Air ' Force considers the X15, the successor called Dyna- Soar and other maneuvernble ships to be the main line of space flight development since, in contrast wilh Ihe : space;; administration's Mercury capsule, they can be controlled , by a pilot and brought home to a conventional landing field. While asserting military .superiority over the Soviet; Union, the administration views Soviet technology with extreme seriousness, as Gilpa'tric pointed out.; It has taken steps to expand the missile program, accelerate work on missile-defense measures and protect U.S. retaliatory forces through mobility, concealment and hardening of underground sites. While the Russian 30-50 megaton explosion is regarded as-a terror measure rather than a necessary military test, the Sovi et rocket shots in the Pacific are something else again- The seventh of the current se ries of 7,500-mile shots wa launched 'two;Delays ago. The three-stage rockets are said her to>be operational ..intercontinenta ballistic missiles, somewhat im proved over those used in earlie Pacific tests, As far as known, the Soviet have .not yet demonstrated a soli fuel mssile with the rapid-firing easier handling characteristics the Minuteman. There is no great puzzlement among experts that the Russians do not have the hundreds of intercontinental .missiles critics once.; predicted they would have by now. They have had their development troubles, just as America has.

I A messenger carrying numbers racket profits from one state to another is breaking the federal law. This has particular applica- lion because a surprising number of sizeable cities are right-on or near state borders. A considerable number of bookies have set up their headquarters in small order towns, to conduct their II- egal activities in ihe big city ight across the border. This has made U difficult for police to arrest them. They ap- larently have" Hot" been breaking jny law in the small town where hey've been 'heiifquartered.
