Army Felt Landing Would Have Left U. S. With No Force By FRED S. HOFFMAN WASHINGTON (AP) The United States might have been left .with few readily maneuverable Army and Marine divisions to deal with other crisis if it had launched an invasion of Cuba. Perhaps for that reason, it was evident U.S. military chiefs counted on a swift, pulverizing stroke to knock out Fidel Castro's forces and Soviet-manned missiles bases. The Defense Department dis- closed Thursday that more than 100.000 troops in .the Strategic Army Corps had been alerted for possible use against Cuba in the recent crisis. Five Of Eight This represented five of the eight divisions in STRAC, the force maintained by the Army in. United States as a reserve to be rushed overseas in event of emergencies, Two of the five divisions ear- marked for the Cuban operation were the only paratroop outfits in the Army. The 82nd Airborne arid the 101st Airborne Divisions nor- mally would be the first to go in any hurry-up "fire brigade" oper- ation. Over-all, the Army has 16 di- visions. In addition to the eight In the United States, five are pinned down in West Germany facing the iron curtain, two are in South Korea confronting the Communists in North Korea and one division is split between Ha- waii and Okinawa.

It comes from funds .appropriated for the Accelerated Public Works Act. Everything now depends on whether Ada voters approve the bond issue in Tuesday's election. The bond issue includes matching construction. The CFA approval Thursday said that construction was ex- pected, to start "within 70 days."
