The Defense Department con- firmed Saturday that the sub- marine -Daniel has sixteen rockets sailed from Guam, into wSterg off the Asian mainland. She is the first of an expected seven-ship, squadron for the far western Pacific sta- tion. The Boonq left file J'olpris servicing base at Wash., several .weeks ajjjo and recently has been alongside the lender ship Proteus in Guam harbor. Pentagon Questioned Saturday morning, the sub- marine had gone and a question at the Pentagon brought De- fense Department confirmation that she was deployed. A Defense Department spokesman said it is only coinci- dental that tlie first of the mis silo subs should take station only three months after Com munisl China detonated a nu- clear test device and began claiming status as an atomic power nation. However, the fact that China has taken a first step toward a nuclear arsenal means thai new and important strategic targets are emerging in the giant.Red nation. Unlil Ihe evidence ot her nuclear capability came, lar gets worthy for listing on Ihe joint strategic target list of the U.S. Air Force and Navy were of conventional nature and far fewer in numbers than those in the Soviet Union target com- plex. Target List Revised Targets in Red China, of course, have been on the strate- gic list for years. Air Force in- lercontinenlal ballistic missiles at West Coast and .-Northwest sites and manned bombers ol both-the Air Force and'Navy carriers have been .assigned targets. Bui the list now would have been revised to assign spe- cific targets to the Polaris sub- marines. The approximate range of the A2 series of mis- siles with which the Boone is armed brings more than half ol China reach. The Boone later will bo refilled for use of the A3 series missiles, with range of about miles. Firing' Tests The Boone was commissioned last spring at the Mare Island, Calif., Navy Yard where she was built. After sea trials and shakedown In the Pacific, ths submarine went to the Atlantic for; firing tests and training, Ihcn relumed late in the sum- mer to the West Coast. If the schedule of the Polaris submarines deployed in the Atlantic is followed, the Boone will steam in a secret area somewhere outside the 100-fa- Ihom curve on the continental shelf of Asia for about two months. By that time, the second Po- laris submarine is expected lo be ready for deployment, fol- lowed al increasing frequency by others of the squadron.
