Award New Sub Contracts; Cost Of Each Up $7 Million By BOB MORTON .marines in two contracts an- WASHINGTON (AP) — Thejnounccd simultaneously as the Navy has awarded identically priced contracts to two ship' yards for six new nuclear attack submarines, each costing about ; $7 million more than similar ;' subs built in recent years. While the prices of the con- ; tracts are the same-4107.4 million for three submarines from each company—the pacts have . significantly different terms. The Navy is at a loss to ex• plain exactly how the identical awards came about but said the different types of contracts would be "mutually beneficial" to both the government and the shipyards.

Although it wasn't specified ir the June 25 anouncement, p. spokesman said the contract to Ingals of Pascagoula. Miss., was a 'fixed price incentive' award while General Dynamics of Groton, Conn., received merely a letter contract. This meant, he said, that Tn- galls' margin of profit will be higher if it completes the three submarines for $107.4 milion or less, than if it exceeds that price. In the case of General Dynamics, however, the letter contract implies that the $107.4 million is not a fixed cost; rather, "the hope is that we can negotiate a lower price later," the spokesman said. 'Mutually Beneficial' The reason given for the difference was only that "in the course of negotiations it was found to be mutually beneficial to both the government and the companies," he said. The spokesman said he could not disclose the maximum margins of profits which might be possible under the awards. The question of whether defense companies are receiving more than adequate profits from Pentagon orders has become a rather heated item in Congress in recent months. The six subs under the total $214.833,000 program would cost slightly more than $35.8 million each.

The Navy did not advertise for bids on the latest contracts. One other company—the Now port News, Va., shipyard—was jonsidered for the work but lost out because its proposal was •ermed too costly. The 3,800-ton vessels are equipped with the SUBROC (submarine rocket) which can launch a nuclear warhead from underwater to fly through the air, dive underwater again and detonate against a hostile submarine. The 278-foot long craft also has four 21-inch torpedo tubes and glides along at 30 knots. N. Vietnam Food Shortage Eased Freeport (III.) Journal-Standard 'g. 2 Mon., July 1, 1968 By FRED S.
