Thursday, MarcK 29, 1956 Army Wins Temporary Battle On Expansion Of Nike Missile System ^WASHINGTON — UP — The SAi'iny Wednesday appeared to have won at least a temporary ^victory in.Jts battle with the Air 'Force" for continues expansion of ::its, •multi-billion dollar Nike missile Viystem. Still unresolved, however, was the basic question of which—the Army or Air Force — ultimately will have the primary mission of anti-aircraft defense of the United States. In an attempt to get an answer to tiiis question, a Senate Armed Services subcommittee announced Wednesday it will call'Defense Department officials to explain why the Army is developing one type- of anti-aircraft missile system and the Air Force another. • .While the subcommittee aired the simmering iuterservice controversy, Defense Secretary Charier, E. Wilson moved to speed development of offensive ballistic missiles. : Wilson Tuesday announced ap- pointment of 'Egcr V. . Murphree, president of Esso Research Engineering 1 Co., to be riilssile 'czar," with the' particular assignment o£ pushing development of the intercontinental ballistic missile. Wilson told a news conference that as his special assistant Murphree "will be given whatever authority is necessary to- get the guided missiles job done." The Army Tuesday presented at a secret session of the subcommittee its case for the Nike missile system and the Air. Force Its case for the Talos missile system. Subcommittee members'were obviously impressed at the Army's presentation, .with its futuristic picture of anti-aircraft missiles armed with atomic warheads and "antimissile" missiles.
