Quot that s anything but peanuts to those who put a High priority on National defense Quot the Republican congressman now making a bid for re election said in a political swipe at democratic presidential candidate Jimmy Carter. Lott said the concern Over the dwindling of the United states Fleet is compounded by the buildup of the soviet Union s Navy. Quot ill be the first to recognize that apples and oranges cannot be compared and the . And soviet military strength should not be compared solely of the basis of numbers Quot Lott said. Quot while they have a larger number we have better Quot we must support shipyards like this Quot Lott continued about the Quality of the . Vessels. Quot we can build better ships for less Money in private he said Ingalls importance stemmed not Only from the fact that it produces Quality ships like the Hewitt but that it has boosted the Economy of South Mississippi a fact revealed by the Low unemployment rate of the area.

St. George commander of the naval surface Force Pacific countered with Quot Good men will disagree but it is an important problem and one we face not Only in this shipyard but in others around the he urged that a speedy settlement of the claims Ingalls has in overruns on the amphibious assault ship lha program and that Ingalls will continue to build these vessels and the destroyers. Quot we be got to have ships like this one Quot he said. Lott said an answer to the overrun claim problem May lie in the total package procurement contract system agreed upon by Ingalls and the Navy. Quot we not Only must Correct the system we must Correct the damage that was done under the old system Quot he said. Ingalls president Leonard Erb welcomed Lott and other dignitaries to Ingalls for the commissioning. Quot we thank you for your Strong support Quot he said Quot and we will continue to Back you up in that support by continuing to build Quality ships As the a biography of the life of Admiral h.

He said Kissinger in gotta rated settlement in Rhodesia Quot has forced the destruction of one it the greatest nation in the Quot the Whites will end up getting eaten unless they get out Quot he predicted with the Black majority Rule when you re outnumbered 17 to 1 by people whore just out of the Trees and still practising in Many cases and believing in Witch doctors they re Notias de with the same thing i litre faced with in mls Sia pop Anderson further said lamented the . Is fast coming to a socialist labor welfare state. And the party supports an offensive capacity and a defensive capability to handle Quot any conceivable array of enemies Quot he said.
