By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Reports WASHINGTON The Soviet Union has reserved areas in the Barents and Kara seas presum ably for nuclear testing extending through Oct 20 The resumption of nuclear test ing by the Soviet Union just as the United States series of tests is being completed marks anothei round in the kind of awesome After you my dear Alphonse game the East and West are play ing Short of a test ban agree ment the nuclear spiral obviously will continue to wind ever up ward Secretary of State Dean Rusk admitted as much when informec of the Soviet Unions planned re sumption of tests he said We have expected it And either side can argue with equal logic as the Russians did in their an nouncement that each renewal i a forced measure The emphasis innuclear testing has shifted from offense to de fense Until the Russian tests last September broke a threeyear moratorium in the spiral the theory behind the US nuclear deterrent oversimplified was that a good offense was better than a good defense The theory became extremely dubious when it began to look as if the Other Side was beginning to develop a good defense If the Soviet Union was able to make its own territory immune to US missiles it would be in a position to at tack the Unijted States without fear of retaliation The Times of London reported after the Soviet round had been thoroughly analyzed It was agreed that the Soviet Union had achieved invaluable results that promise the early developmenl of an tinental ballistic missile war head It is known that the Soviets ex ploded one weapon 100 miles above the earth presumably in an attempt to create a missile de fense system High altitude ex plosions are considered necessary to obtain information for design o an antimissile warhead and data on its probable kill radius Moreover such explosions might jam enemy radar communications and missile guidance systems The emphasis in the US testing in the Pacific has been on high altitude blasts These drew from Soviet Premier Khrushchev the boast July 16 that our rocket hits a fly in outer space Talking to a group of American editors Khrushchev went on to say that the USSR had a global rocket that cannot be destroyed by any antirocket means and I know if anybody knows what anti rocket means are because we do have them Khrushchevs claims were slightly deflated by the US Nike Zeus test of three days later when an ICBM actually was inter cepted at 100000 feet over Kwajalein Island This afforded Defense Secretary Robert S Mc Namara an appropriate opportun ity to observe that US programs give us confidence that our mis siles would be able to penetrate any such antimissile system which has been developed by any one Report another Red nuclear blast WASHINGTON
