WASHINGTON iAP)-Secretary of Defense Rof)eri S McNamara said Saturday U S. nuclear striking power is so immense the nation could absorb a surprise assault, then destroy Russia, and still Iiave enough left over to counter a blackmail threat from any third power.
This is a point which has long bothered many .strategists, particularly in view of the possibility that Red China will develop atomic weapons m the near future.
McNamara, in a wide-ranging interview', also said:
1. By the end of 1962 the United States will be able to meet nonnuclear war crises on two fronts^ simultaneously without resorting! immediately to partial mobiliza-! tion. That is something the coun-! try has not been able to do since World War II. j

FUMES KILL CHILD ASLEEP IN AUTO; 6 OTHERS OKAY
ROSCOE (RNS) — The seven children of a Fort Worth couple were asleep in the back seat of the family car driving between Sweetwater and Roscoe Saturday morning. Then one of them became ill and the parents discovered that their 9-year-old daughter had died, apparently of carbon monoxide fumes seeping into the car.
Patricia Ann Lee, 9, was pronounced dead on arrival at Roscoe Clinic about 7:30 a.m. Her four sisters and two brothers, all younger than Patricia Ann, were treated and released.
The parents, Mr. and Mrs. James Lee Jr. of Fort Worth, said they were en route from Fort Worth to Denver, Colo., and that there was no hint of danger until one child became ill.
Patricia Ann was born May 13, 1952.
Wells Funeral Home of Roscoe took the body to Fort Worth later Saturday. Baker Funeral Home there will announce arrangements.
