S. Says Skybolt Is Still Dead Successful Test Doesn't Change Missile's Fate CAPE (AP) The controversial Skybolt air-launched missile registered its first success in six tests Saturday, but the White House and Pentagon said the .flight would not alter U.S. plans to cancel the .weapon. Acting -Secretary of Defense Roswell F. Gilpatric strongly indi- cated in Washington that this launching was the last for Skybolt The Air Force has several mis- siles remaining which it hoped to fire in case the program was re- vived at a future date. Heats Issue The successful test almost cer- tainly will "intensify the -seething Skybolt issue In Great Britain where Prime Minister Harold Macmillan is being assailed, from all political sides for his Nassau agreement with President Ken- nedy to. accept U.S. Polaris sub- marine missiles in place of Sky- bolts. British defense officials earlier had .staked the nation's nuclear deterrence on Skybolt, abandoning several of their own missile proj- ects. The sleek Skybolt was launched Saturday from a B52 Strato- fortress bomber streaking more than seven miles above the At- lantic Ocean, about 15 miles south- east of Cape Canaveral. With almost fantastic accuracy, the wcket drilled its nose cone to a target 850 miles down range, landing just one mile off the cen- ter of the bullseye. A Bonus Accuracy was not a major goa] of .the target was: a broad section of an official called 'of target center an "unexpected bonus." The Air Force originally sched- uled the launching during the Kennedy-Macmjllan talks this week, in hopes a success would have some bearing on the discus- sions. But sources reported the shot was delayed until the Western leaders parted "because of politi- cal' reasons." When the success was -an- nounced, Jubilant project officials iprodaimed it "a wonderful Christ-' mas present" and said they hoped perhaps the Western leaders would change their minds about swapping Polarises for Skybolts. Best Defense But within hours, word came from Palm Beach, Fla., where Kennedy is vacationing, that the Bahamas agreement "gives -the 'best possible defense for the West only for the 60s but the 70s." Gilpatric drove another nail in Skybolfs coffin later in the day he said there would be no change in the decision of .the Pentagon to halt the program. "The Skybplt flight test that took place this morning, the only successful test out of the six con- ducted to date, had been, sched- uled for sometime prior to the un- derstandings reached yesterday at Nassau by President Kennedy and Prime Minister Macmillan. "Today's 'did not conclusively demonstrate the ca- pacity, of the missile to achieve the target accuracy for which the Skybolt system was designed. This flight test was one of an ex- tensive series planned for the re- search phase of the 'project- Some Succeed "It is always expected that some tests of this sort should succeed and that others will fail. Many additional tests-had been planned and would be required during the research phase to prove out and perfect this com- plex weapons system. "Program decisions -cannot be based simply upon the success or failure of early tests. Doubts -as to the prospects of success -of the Skybolt system in its entirety and reliability when operational were among the factors .responsible for the recommendation of the secre- tary of defense 'against further funding .the program. The result's of today's test have not caused any change in that position." Kennedy decided to- scrap the Skybolt because of. rising costs expected to reach de- lays caused by five te'stxfailures and questionable performance. (Continutd on Running into debt isn't so bad.

The International Longshore- men's Association is threatening to call its members off docks from Searsport, Maine, to Browns- ville, -Tex., unless agreement, on a new contract is reached by 5 p.m. Sunday. A new offer by the union would submit the size of work crews to an impartial -study committee and allow a two-year contract to be negotiated on other'issues.. How Many? The size of the work gangs has been the main stumbling block in the talks. Secretary of Labor W. Willard Wirtz earlier this week proposed a one-year contract with the work issue submitted-'to a study-com- mittee. Both sides rejected 'the move. Saturday, however, the ship- owners said they would agree-to. Wirtz's.proposal, but are opposed to-a'.two-year contract.
