But Lodge, who sat in us guest of the Senate armed com- mittee, noted in sharp questioning of tho military chiefs that ori- ginal blueprint for this postwar air force contemplated 70 groups. Lodge drew from rctary of Air Symington and from General Carl Spaatz. Air Force of staff, that they still regard larger figure as necessary. Tills brought Secretary of Defense Forrcstal back to the witness irtand with tho rejoinder that to add 15 groups would boost the cost of tho expansion program to for air power alone. And both Uie Navy and Ground Forces then would have to be increased In pro- portion, he insisted. Subs Off Shore Aside from tile clash over power, tlie testimony of top military officials yesterday afternoon highlighted by Secretary of the Navy Sullivan's dramatic announce- ment that foreign submarines re- cently "have been sighted off our shores." He said these did not be- long to any nation west of Iron Curtain." Sullivan flatly refused to say pub- licly Just where the underwater boats were spotted. But at the navy department a. high official said there were three instances in which for- eign submarines were reported sight- ed in the California-Aleutian Is- lands-Hawaii triangle. One was seen at night by a merchant vessel 200 miles off San Francisco, the official said. He added that identification or tlie object as a. submarine was not positive. Other Navy men said there la nothing to stop submarines any country from plying the high seas. They added that the United States would have no formal grounds for objections unless a foreign submar- ine penetrated within the three- mile limit. Bomb Rusi, Return Symington told the committee that America's B-29 bombers "can take off in limited operations from such points as Alaska or Labrador, bomb any part of Russia, and return to American bases such as the Phil- ippines, Okinawa, Alaska or Labra- dor." The air secretary added that the Air Force will have whole bomb- ing units capable of doing this by tlie start of next year. On tlie other hand. Secretary of the Army Royall said: case of any reasonably possi- ble war, no part of tlie central Eura- sian land mass could be effectively reached by strategic bombing from bases on or near the North Amer- ican continent or from bases In tho Philippines. Even from any of the Atlantic island nations or from Ja- pan or Alaska, frequent and Inten- sive strategic bombing could touch only fragmentary parts of central Eurasia."
