THE MENACE By Hank Ketchum ALL "An you sure that's * manicure set? It looks more like a TOOL KIT!" Missile ships on lakes urged as ABM stand-in PnO§Bre> Rftti, WpfV *t ImPJ Associated Press ; WASHINGTON - A paper ', is circulating among con; gressmen and lobbyists pro• posing deployment of mis- ', sile-launching ships on the ; Great Lakes as an alternative to the Safeguard antiballistic missile system proposed by the Nixon administration. Stationing ships toting ICBMs on other bodies of wa- •ler such as Utah's Great Salt take, Chesapeake Bay on the Atlantic seaboard, and waters adjacent to the Alaskan panhandle also is suggested in the paper. • The theory is that these waiters afford better cover from ^snooping satellites and other -tracking methods, and that '.ships could do a better job at less cost than the controversial Safeguard system. ." "These bodies of water .may look miniscule compared 4o the Atlantic Ocean," the Seeport notes, "but they are ,$lrge enough to make it impracticable for the Soviet Union to toss an ICBM at every area a ship could be in." I So far, the idea has not been introduced into the ABM ^hearings, and there has been gio comment from the Navy. 'Some retired naval officers have it in hand, however, and circulated it among Defense Department officials before going to Capitol Hill. It is not known whether the authors of the report, who have not been identified, have any organizational backing. Asked by a newsman what he thought of the idea, Rep. William R. Anderson, D-Tenn., a retired Navy captain, said he considers it "entirely practical." Anderson, who navigated the submarine Nautilus on its historic voyage beneath the North Pole 11 years ago, suggested the ships might cruise at high speeds on random courses. With frequent protection offered by cloud cover, darkness or camouflage, he said, they would be difficult to pinpoint by surveillance satellites. Intrigued by the idea, Anderson agrees that it might solve the problem of maintaining a second-strike capability that President Nixon and Secretary of Defense Melvin R. Laird seek to protect through a modified ABM system. Whom should you call to air condition your home? ED SMITH AIR CONDITIONING the company that hat a reputation for fair prices.
