MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY FEBRUARY It 1HO 7 COPT CoDrtit Two On HOME EDITION lit Subs off our coasts for years Keeping track of them major job for Navy By WILLIAM CANT York Herald Tribune News Service not news to Navy Intelligence that foreign submarines presumably Rus sian are lurking in American waters The sub reported off Argen tina last week is only one of many unidentified undersea craft that have been detected off both coasts of the Americas in recent years Adm Jerauld Wright who is retiring as Commander of NATO Naval Forces in the Atlantic at the end of this month indicated recently an increasing level of Soviet submarineactivity in Al lied waters but said that h i s command was making import ant progress against the men ace WE HAVE conclusive evi dence that they the Russians are showing an increased inter est in the East Coast of North America a key area and an in dustrial complex of the first im portance not only to America but to our NATO Alliance he said Adm Wright added that Rus sian fishing craft operating in the North Atlantic probably are doing other things than fishing ocean bottoms and other tasks of Naval importance for example He no doubt was referring to trawlers supplyin submarines The same situation prevails in Pacific Adm Harry D Felt commander of the U S forces at Pearl Harbor has saic that the Soviet Union and Rec China haveat least 120 submar ines in the Pacific less than half the number the Russians are believed to have in Atlantic waters Rear Adm Howard A Yeager acting antisubmarine warfare readiness executive said WE NOW FACE about 450 Spvigl submarines To oppose these we have about 300 ocean escorts a ratio of less than one to and about 720 ASW Air craft a ratio of less than two to We do have one addi tional member of the marine team our own antisub marine submarines of which we have about 80 The Navy is placing great emphasis on anti submarine warfare for just as sea power conditions strategy so our ability to control the Sov iet submarine will condition sea power In the Atlantic the US Navy has two task anc Bravo alternating in contin uous watch against submarines Each unit has an aircraft car rier with 20 or so Grumman S2F Tracker Aircraft a dozen or more Sikorsky HSS1 Helicop ters and several Douglas AD5W Guppies the small radar equipped planes used for relay ing communications between the Grummans Sikorskys and the carrier There also are six to eight de stroyers or escort destroyers equipped with sonar radar and antisubmarine weapons accom panying the carrier To back up the sea force landbased Martin Marlin patrol planes are on duty at coast bases as part of the Hunter Killer Forces HUK for short THE TOUGHEST JOB of the task forces is detection Radar is not very effective because it doesnt penetrate the surface of water and sonar must be within a mile or so of the submarine to detect the craft The helicopters carry dunk ing sonars and the fixedwing planes have magnetic airborne detectors MADS which re cord the passage of the craft over metal objects in the water None of the detection devices are as efficient as the Navy would like but together they cov er a large area and often come up with good results As long as the foreign subs behave themselves and stay out of American waters the task forces are content to just keep track of them those nuclear powered have im proved tremendously since World War II and the chances are that only a small percent age of them including ours are elettctwi FLASHBACKS IN CHESSMAN STORY Here is Caryl Chessman in four stages of his
