which range nuclear missiles would be launched from large airplanes Existence of the study the for Missile System X was revealed in an inter- view with Lt Gen Otto J Glasser Air Force deputy chief of staff for research and development published in the current issue of the unofficial but authoritative Air Force Magazine SOURCES scribed by Edgar Ulsamer from a base in the United Mid thiB flying

a mobile missile system and development of a new ly of smart missiles that will be able to find their own way to targets with precise accuracy ly reflected a major change in Air Force policy WHILE THE IS de- for the year some of the major developments mentioned by Gen Glasser could come into the tory as early as 1985 In the Air Force studies two basic versions of the airborne missile system are under consideration cording to Glasser In one version the plane would carry true missiles probably similar to the range Minuteman missiles and would be able to launch its missiles within minutes after taking off At the opposite extreme would be a plane carrying missiles de- signed to be launched close to the target area but still outside the enemy's tion range WHILE THE FIRST sion has the advantage of instant response the ond version is more eco- because it is cheaper to fly a of missiles close to the get than to deliver each of them the whole distance by rocket power Move will kill measure they

make a trip to the United States sometime after king and Washington open liaison ices in each others capitals President Nixon's announcement of the appointment of Ambassador David K E Bruce 75 to head Washington's liaison office in Peking once again has stirred speculation that Chou would make such a journey NEITHER THE WHITE HOUSE nor the State Department would comment on the possibility however Several developments suggest that China and the United States have every intention of developing their relations more quickly than had been expected China agreed to release CIA agent John T Downey on a al appeal from Nixon NOW THE PRESIDENT has an- that he is calling out of ment one of America's most respected ambassadors to represent the United States in Peking Bruce headed the U.S delegation to the Vietnam peace talks from 1970 to 1972 and previously served as sador to Great Britain West Germany and France SOVIET DIPLOMATS said they were particularly curious as to whether Chou might visit the United States soon sibly this fall Their interest apparently related to the possibility of a visit here this year by Leonid I Brezhnev the general of the Soviet Communist Party CHOU SO FAR has publicly fended off questions about a visit to the United States Bantering with U.S newsmen in Shanghai at the end of President on's trip to China last February Chou claimed he was too old at 74 to visit the United States however much he might like to But he did not categorically rule out such a trip A visit by Chou in the absence of full diplomatic relations would obviously carry great symbolic significance It would seem to signal that Washington and Peking would soon establish full diplomatic ties David
