( IOSEDMJNDAY THE ARIZONA REPUBLIC Thursday, June 18, 1970 Page 51 Laird visits 6th Fleet carrier New York times Service ABOARD THE FRANKLItf D. ROOSEVELT—Defense Secfetary Melvin R. Laird said yesterday it was "most important that we maintain military, strategic balance" in the Middle! East. Speaking to American newsmen aboard this 63,000-ton carrier in the Mediterranean, the secretary stressed that the United States had a responsibility in that area and was fulflflingr it "folly." VI do not think this is the time or the place to discuss operational orders and deployments that may be assigned or not assigned," Laird remarked, in what sounded like a cautious hint of U.S. military preparedness with regard to the Middle East. Earlier Rear Adm. Lester E. Hubbell, commander of a cruiseMestroyer flotilla of the U.S. 6th Fleet in the Mediterranean, said in a briefing aboard the Roosevelt: "We can go anywhere and can go pretty rapidly." In his news conference, Laird said that President Nixon and the national security organs were reviewing the problems of military equilibrium in the Middle East. The secretary visited the 25-year-old Roosevelt and other units of the 6th Fleet yesterday in the course of a tour of armed forces installations and units in Europe. Laird had originally been scheduled to watch exercises of carrier-based aircraft and meet the American press aboard the TJSS Forrestal, which is larger and newer than the Roosevelt. Plans were changed during the last few days for undisclosed reasons. American Navy officers declared themselves unable to state the Whereabouts of the Forrestal in the Mediterranean. The Roosevelt and other warships were cruising in the Tyrrhenian Sea 60 miles off the Italian harbor of Civitavecchia during the defense secretary's visit. Earlier in his tour, Laird had talked with leaders of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in meetings in Venice and Brussels. Asked about NATO commitments in the Middle East, the secretary said, "It seems that in this particular area the United States finds itself without a great deal of support" at present. ennetff ALWAYS FIRST QUALITY^ OUTDOOR FURNITURE by SAMSdNITE®!
