Advocate (Newspaper) - January 28, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 118th. 263 TELEPHONE HI J-1451 VICTORIA, TEXAS, TUESDAY, JANUARY 28, 1964 Established U.S. Missile Reliability Underscored More Certain Than B52s, MeNamara Tells Congress WASHINGTON (AP) Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara said Monday that U.S. missiles can be counted on to reach their targets more con- sistently than manned bombers can. Without any direct reference to recent criticism by Sen. Barry Goldwater. R-Ara., McNamara told that he has no hesi- T 1 lancy whatever about (he de- Launching Of Saturn Postponed CAPE KENNEDY, Fla (AP) The scheduled launching Monday of a Saturn I super- rocket intended to orbit the world's heaviest satellite was postponed 48 hours until Wed- nesday because some one had forgot to remove a test device from a fuel line. The failure, a space agency human error, described by official as a left a metal plate blocking a line, preventing liquid oxygen lox from flowing Into the fiisc stage. Project official Rocco A. Pe- place the to one or two in- trone declined blame on any dividuals. Fault Of All "It was carelessness on the whole (200-man) team, a human Petrone told a news con- ference. "It was a routine pro- cedure that we've done many pendabilily of America's new solid-fuel, quick-firing Minute- man missiles. "There is greater uncertainty about [he systems dependability of the B52, although it is an old and experienced aircraft, than about the Minutcman, a brand new missile McNa. mara said. Diminishing Hole Goldwater, who is campaign- ing for the Republican presi- dential nomination, said in New Hampshire on Jan. 9 thai the nation's intercontinental bal- listic missiles are undependable. Goldwaler also expressed con- cern about the diminishing role of manned bombers. He is a pilot and an Air Force Reserve major general. McNamara appeared at a Congo Guerrillas Push Attacks on Christians closed session of Armed Services the House Committee, times before. This time didn't do it. We make i takes." Petrone described the ob- structing device as a "blind a plate of aluminum about seven inches in diameter and three-thirty-seconds of an inch thick. It was inserted in a section of 300-foot line two or three days ago during a pres- sure check of the line. To Clieck Line The launch crew wanted to check the line for any leaks, up to Ihe Jlage insertion point, un- der 300 pounds of pressure per square inch. The section of line above the plate is designed for only about 50 pounds of pressure per square inch, and the alumi- num disc prevented the heavier pressure from entering that area and rupturing the line. Petrone said that after such a test, a two man crew usually needs about an hour lo remove Ihe plate from an area where two sections of pipe join to- gether. Wouldn't Say Petrone declined to say whether the same tsvo men arc assigned to the job each lime. But be said the removal of the plate was not on the routine checklist and thus could be overlooked. He said the check- list would be changed. The trouble was detected af- ter the countdown had pro- gressed with some earlier tcch- which is starting hearings on the Defense Department's an- nual authorization bill. His latemenl, a 171-page review, vas given out by the Pentagon. Other Points He made these other points: this coming June, the number of Minuleman missiles n place will reach 600, or al- nost equal to the total of 030 ong-range B52 jet bombers. By June 1965, there will be 800 mis- siles in place. The ultimate goal )e solved before the Pentagon can decide whether the Nike X missile killer can be moved rom the testing stage to the assembly lines. Once again Mc- Namara raised Ihe question of cost. He said it would run to about billion, plus substan- tial annual operating costs. Submarine Problems only to the problem >f defending against intercon- inenlal ballistic missile attack s the problem of Soviet missile- aunching submarines. "We do lot now have any significant de- "ense against missiles once they lave been launched by enemy McNamara said. AIcNamara also replied in ef- 'ect to critics of has been called the "overkill" capability of ICBM and Polaris weapons system.

T a x Assessor-Collector H. Campbell Dpdscn said poll tax receipts and ex- emption certificates had been is- sued by his office at the close of business Monday, about of these having been given out during the day. Near Potential The same ratio of increase, If maintained during the four days, would result n a total not far from the coun- ty's estimated vote potential of about for 19G4. Dodson was hopeful that the effects of poll tax campaigns sponsored by the League of Women Voters, the Victoria Junior Chamber of Commerce and other groups were begin- ning to be felt among the great number of voters who have yet i qualify. The assessor-collector said his office.will remain open until 9 p.m. Friday, the last day. Track Repaired Al Bloon.iiigtoii Rail traffic began moving early Monday over the repaired section of track three miles west of Bloomington that was t h e scene of an eight car derail- ment Sunday morning.
