Increase Was More Aspin contended that the cost increase was even higher. He said by adding Army figures not included in the Pentagon estimate the total overrun appeared to be $1.5 billion. "Some of the $1.5 billion in cost increases are probably legitimate and unavoidable "because they were caused by either restrictions imposed by the SALT (Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty) ... or specific orders from Congress," Aspin said. "But much of the increase is probably the result of Army mismanagement." The Army operates the ABM program. GAO Probe "In view of my suspicions concerning the extent of cost overruns, I am asking the GAO (Government Accounting Office) to investigate the cost increases on the Safeguard contract," Aspin said. By the time last year's SALT agreement limited Safeguard to a single site guarding a missile field in Grand Forks, and a second site at Washington— never approved by Congress- cost estimates for a two-site program were almost 100 per cent above the original. Rep. I In 1969,,a two-site program at,cited Grand Forks and Malmstrom Air Force Base,. Mont., was estimated to cost $4,185 billion. By the time of the SALT agreement, the Pentagon said Sunday, the estimate for finishing these two sites was $6.17 billion. Cost $8 Billion Should Congress approve construction of an ABM site guarding Washington, the Pen tagon said, the cost of completing Grand Forks and constructing the Washington site would be about $8 billion. A spokesman said the cost of completing the Grand Forks site alone is now estimated at $5.47 billion.

He said these additional amounts gave him the $1.5 billion increase figure. By DICK WEST WASHINGTON (tlPi) - The move In Congress to cut off flight pay for high-ranking officers assigned to desk jobs is a serious mistake. Anyone who knows anything at all about modern military strategy will tell you that desk power is America's first line of defense. , The Lighter Side As a deterrent, it has no equal. As long as we have desk superiority, no enemy will dare attack us. The United States presently has the biggest and best desk force in the world. But in recent years the Soviet Union has been gaining ground rapidly. Latest intelligence reports indicate the Soviets now have a as many as 10,000 desks with sophisticated multi-button telephones capable of putting as many as five callers on "hold" simultaneously. When their new dual-tray in- baskets become operational, doubling the capacity of interoffice memos, their desk corps will virtually be a match for) our own. It is true that negotiations are under way on a Soviet: American agreement that would freeze the military desk strength of both countries at present levels. Known by the code word SOFT (Strategic Office Furniture Treaty),:these talks.hold promise of halting the East- West paperwork buildup. But if the Soviets were showing suddenly to close the gap, America's bargaining position would be weakened and Henry Kissinger would be hard pressed to win any concessions from' the Kremlin as to limitations on paperclips, paperweights, - dictaphones and intercoms. Moreover, nothing in the SOFT agreement would prevent the Soviets from converting part of their desk, production to Capt. Eddie Rickenbacker Rickenbacker Dies Of Heart Attack I MIAMI (UPI) -.Eastern Air I Lines officials said they received word that aviation pioneer Capt. Eddie Rickenbacker had died in a hospital at Z u r i c b, Switzerland, - early today. Rickenbacker was 82 years old and an officer with Eastern. An Eastern spokesman said Rickenbacker died of a heart attack at the Neununster Hospital in Zurich early today. | He said the aviation pioneer and his wife had been in Zurich since July 11." Rickenbacker was hospitalized in Miami nearly a month this spring, but doctors said he had improved so much he was allowed to go home and later to make the trip to Zurich. . An Eastern spokesman said services for Rickenbacker would be held in Columbus, Ohio, but no specific arrange-, ments had yet been made. $ conference tables. Although too large for many offices, conference tables nevertheless could he used in emergencies to give the' Soviets' the edge, in over-all swivel chajaj capability. ; ' r Clearly, it would be, folly to weaken the U.S. desk force at this time. Yet that would surely be the result of cutting off flight pay for high-ranking officers manning the desks/ Rather than lose their Stipends, generals and admirals would start pulling strings to get transferred to assignments that require them to spend some time in the air/ Furthermore, there would be large scale avoidance of. desk jobs, making it difficult, to* get qualified personnel to fill the vacancies; '" Car of the Year: lime of the Year: Visit your Ford Dealer's "Last Chance" Sale.
