This could be a coincidence. Maybe it wasn't. A little over a year and a nan ago— Oct. 6. 1953— Secretary o£ Defense Wilson made a prediction about the Russians: "It would be perhaps three years before they would have a reasonable number of bombs (H-bombs) and airplane* that could deliver them- I don't happen to think myself that this lunt factor is too important." He said he thought American developments were about three years ahead of the Russians. 'Capability Superior' A month ago the Russians displayed over Moscow iwarms of planes, fijrhtera and long-range bombers, some of new types. That touched off public warnings mat the Reds were pulling abreast, if not ahead, of American air power. Sen. Svmington (D-Mo). who was secretary of the Air Force under President Truman, said Wilson had underestimated Soviet air strength. The Defense Department issued a statement saying the Russians were cutting into this country lead in production of heavy, long- range and medium bombers. Three days ago Wilson said this country is maintaining a "military capability superior" to that of Russia. He listed the kinds of new planes seen over Moscow this month. Thursday the Air Force announced it is ordering a boost in the production of America's newest long-range jet bomber, the Bo2. What is the tally, between the United States and Russia, in planes and their development? Here's Box Score Here is a box score put together from the information provided by Wilson and information put into the Congressional Record by Symington : Long-range heavy bombeis— For years the Russians had no long-range bomber. The United States stayed ahead with its long-ranger, the B36. ot which n had plenty. But no more B36s aie being built. They will be succeeded by the B52. The B52, an eight-jet bomber, is not yet in operation in Air Force squadrons.

Over Moscow the Russians dis played 10 or more of their new long-range jet bombers, called Type 37, which Wilson himself said is comparable to the B52. It is said to have four jet engines and may be more powerful than the B52. Medium bombers — The American B47, with six jet engines, can go long-range with refueling. About 1.500 have been built. Type 39 Larger Its Russian counterpart was shown over Moscow. It is called Type 39.

ILLINOIS f«?r the B47, but is described mm larger and perhaps more powerful. Fifty Type 39s were flown over Moscow. The Ru5sians also showed a plane— called the 5X38— which is a turboprop swept-wlng bomber. Besides acting a* a bomber, it could be used for refueling other long-range planes for reconnaissance. Wilson said the Russians showed at least nine. The United States has no turboprop bombers- but has some in production. Fighteis- As a counterpart of this country's day fighters — the F86 Sabre and the supersonic F100— the Russians have the MIG15 and MIG17. This country has thousands of the F86. The Russians are believed to have thousands of the MIG15. The United States has turned out several FlOOs. It is not known how many MIGl's the Russians have. But better than the F86 Sabre and F100. the United States is building the F104. a supersonic jet with a speed of 1.000 miles an Is Your House Blistering or Peeling?
