you can for a visit to Offutt Air Force Base near Omaha Nebraska Thats the nerve center for the nations Strategic Air Command more commonly referred to by its initials SAC This experience came to me recently and what I saw heard and sensed had the effect of con firming my conviction that our national defense is at its alltime high In those things that really count as those which merely attract

figure import antly in the SAC picture But there is no assumption that over night they are going to do away with what was referred to as manned airplanes The day of pushbutton warfare may be just ahead but most assuredly isnt here for ours or any other coun try Ordinary prudence of course calls for a maximum utilization of guided missiles and a progres sive integration with transporta tion of warheads by planes with speeds undreamed of in World War I Thc progress in fire power if progress is the word in such a gory business is well illustrated by the fact that one plane today a B52 can carry in one flight a total explosive force greater than that released by all i that made our bomb runs in SEN JENNER Jenner Not io Run for Re Election BEDFORD Ind Wil liam E Jenner RInd went quail
