WASHINGTON Her d i v e ended in tragedy She was de signed as the deepest diving submarine in all the United States fleet Yet the Thresher now a flattened hulk under 8 400 feet of water could perform mere belly flops compared to the diving capability the Navy is planning for its Theres a new breed of sub marines under construction in the shipyards and under design on the drawing boards of naval architects They carry names like the Aluminaut the Deep Star and the Dolphin Some of them will go down 15000 feet where they will be able to crawl about on the ocean floor and search for targets of interest with lobsterlike robot claws They will be the vanguard of the new breed Most subs today operate within 400 feet of the oceans surface just the top most layers of the water The Navy wants standard operation at depths down to 20000 feet But before they can they must learn something of life at those depths They must design ships that can withstand the terrific pressures At 20000 feet the water exerts a pressure of 8800 pounds on each square inch of surface Thats about 500 times more pressure than the atmosphere exerts on us at sea level i The research vessels soon to WASHINGTON be launched will provide much fense Secretary Robert S Mc of that data The bathyscophe Trieste piloted by Jacques Picard for the United States Navy has explored the ocean floor 35000 feet down in the Pacific Ocean but that craft is a diving balloon It cannot make any lateral movements on the ocean floor j The coming ships except for the Dolphin they will have a lateral range of only 10 to 20J miles The Dolphin will have a greater range but its maximum operating depth it is believed will be only about 6000 feet Alexandra of her bridegroom financier Angus Ogilvy leave the West Door of

for the military It would be easier for them to avoid detection by traveling close to the ocean floor or mak ing u n d e r w a ter maneuvers similar to those which dogfight ing airplanes use when under attack i But they would also open up use of the oceans for other pur poses For example ships could be built that could travel along transoceanic telephone cables and repair them thereby cut ting down greatly on the cost of the cables They could also be built to carry fuel or troops Namara Wednesday again cautioned Congress against drastic cutting of the defense budget McNamara said in Senate testimony that the billion in defense spending proposed by President Kennedy is the price the United States must be prepared to pay to protect its own and the free worlds virtual interests He told the opening round of hearings on the budgetbill by the Senate military appropria tions subcommittee that sharp cuts could not help but ad versely affect our military capabilities McNamara did not refer di rectly to a recent million cut by the Senate in weapons authorizations for fiscal 1964 but he obviously had this in mind in cautioning against economy moves at the ex pense of national security In reviewing the whole spec trum of US defense activi ties McNamara said the United States stilt is not on the brink of developing a work able system of intercepting enemy missiles But he said neither is

leader Charles A Hal leek has accused postal officials of trying to blackjack Congress out of more money with threats j to cut mail service j The officials he said should find some other way of saving money One way of doing this suggested Sen John 0 Pastore DRI would be for Postmaster General J Edward Day to buy fewer trucks and equipment and not to take on any new employes Pastore and Sen A Willis Rob ertson DVa said they saw little chance of the Senate restoring the more than million slashed from postal funds by the House The House whacked million from a budget the de partment proposed for the fiscal year beginning July 1 It also cut million from million in supplemental funds to operate the postal service between now and June 30 the end of the current year Faced with the economy drive the
