months but it has a rather respectable history For quite some time it has been a U S government policy to accumulate strategic and crit ical materials against nationa emergency Maybe weve had too mucli of a good thing A Senate investigating sub committee started hearings on the subject five months ago Its members sought answers to these two questions 1 Why did we stockpile so much more than

items still critically short and on which we have spent less than million The billion cited by the President represented the cur rent market value of materials in government stockpiles Their cost value was billion The difference of billion accord ing to Sen Symington repre sented a loss far greater than any I have seen in the Billie Sol Estes case The major objective of the has been to
