Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - October 26, 1957, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for the 3N CITY GLOBEGAZETTE THE NEWSPAPER T H A T MAKES ALL NORTH 10 WANS N I G H B O ft Soviets to Unveil Secret Weapons By B J CUTLER New York HeraldTribun News Service MOSCOW The Soviet Union will put on public display on Nov 7 armed forces reequipped for atomic and missile warfare This conclusion is inescapable to anyone who has watched the nightly street rehearsal of troops with deadly new weapons which will rumble through Red Square to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution The Nov 7 parade is tradition ally a display of Communist mili tary power This time it promises to be such a show of force that it cannot be regarded as anything but a supplement to the Kremlins foreign policy Tough Policy Since Russia claimed two months ago that it had tested an intercontinental ballistic missile and then partly confirmed this claim by rocketing a satellite into space its policy toward the West has been tough and confident Stripped of diplomatic and propaganda euphemism the Kremlin in effect has been tell ing the free world We are now in a position of military superiority and the only reasonable course for you is to accept peace on our terms It had been expected that Rus sia would soon back up its con fident talk by demonstrating part of its missile arsenal in an at tempt to affect public opinion here and abroad This is appar ently just what is planned for Associated Press and United Press Full Lease Wlrei Seven Cents CoPy MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY OCTOBER 26 1957 This Paper Consists of Two No If SURPRISE MOVE BY KREMLIN elieve Zhuk As Armv Chi Nov 7 The most interesting of the new equipment seen on the streets in recent nights is a large tanklike vehicle mounting a huge weapon covered by a canvas tarpaulin which will not be stripped off be fore the parade Tactical Missile Most persons who have seen the vehicle believe its coverec weapon is a tactical missile thinks it might be very heavy gun In either case the vehicle is regarded as cap able of striking atomic blows on the battlefield Also to be shown is a 40foot long trailer also shrouded by canvas and pulled by a truck This is regarded as the carrier for a guided missile probably a ground to air anti aircraft weapon Another trailer 70feet long and pulled by a full track ve hicle is expected to carry a mis sile with a range of hundreds of miles or possibly a 1500mile intermediate range ballistic mis sile No trailer has been seen long or heavy enough to mount Rus sias continentspanning super longrange missiie This gigan tic and topsecret weapon is not likely to appear in the parade New Emphasis The vehicles in rehearsal make it clear that the emphasis will be on missiles this year In no previous parade did the Russians show such weapons with the ex ception of shortrange battlefield rockets of the type they used widely in World War II In recent years no tanks have been seen in Red Square At least 50 T54 medium tanks are now rehearsing They have never been shown in Moscow although having been in Budapest last year they are not unknown to the West Twentyfive new heavy tanks even longer and heavier than the formidable Stalin tanks are to make their debut These will be followed by tanklike amphibious assault vehicles mounting a heavy machine gun and designed for river crossing Change in Plans Another amphibious vehicle mounts a large tactical rocket There will also be an assortment of improved fulltrack carriers for conventional rockets which used to be mounted on ordinary trucks This massive display of new equipment is in contrast to pre vious displays when only one or two new pieces of equipment would be displayed The change in policy appeared to be a state ment that the missile age is here and Russia feels ready for it There have been no reliable re ports of completely new military aircraft practicing flyovers for
