Herald Tribune News FT BLISS Tex Said the sergeant Compared to this one Id say that William Tell had a pushover assignment He was referring to the shoot which is scheduled to take place west of Johnston Island in the Pacific sometime in February From there several weeks hence a Chryslermade Jupiter ballistic missile will blast off to westward aimed at boomerang shaped Kwajalein Island Other Jupiters will follow The number available is an official secret They will ride the Pacific sky anywhere from 100 to 600 miles up and the to target over the 1500 mile distance will be roughly 10 minutes From Kwajalein Island the NikeZeus missile a lighter slower weapon will fire as the Jupiters come in The object of the shoot Is to see if Zeus can intercept Jupiter and destroy it during the descent to target How far out Well 90 or so miles SHOULD ZEUS fail to do its stuff in this shoot leaving Jupi ter unscathed the result could be the jettisoning of a program which has already cost the US billion and may cost as much more fay the time the Johnston Island shoot is through But if Zeus should perform fantastical ly and make a spectacular kill in the Pacific sky on its first pay run the explosion will echo from Pennsylvania Avenue to Capitol Hill the White HouseZeusis an interesting experiment worth supporting through the re search and development stage on the outside chance that it

the William Meyer haunted Friday night number of ICBMs American security undermine Congress provided million in the current budget to rush Zeus ahead Of that mil lion was votedto set up an in dustry for lowcost production of the miniature transistors needed in quantity when Zeus begins to roll Now made by hand these transistors used in the missiles brain are terribly costly and slow to produce Without this specially created transistor industry mass pro duction of the Zei delayed for years THE ADMINISTRATION has simply set aside the transistor part of the appropriation It wants more concrete proof be fore waving full speed to a pro gram which finally might cost billion Zeus has been treated as a crash item by the Army since the idea was born It has been given just enough budgetary support to establish the feasibi lity of the idea Should the evi dence from the Pacific test prove positive another national decision will have to be just how far to plunge on a wea pon which by nature is another deterrent ratherthan a true pro tective shield Zeus cant make America invulnerable to attack by intercontinental rockets car rying Hbomb warheads It might be supplied in such num bers as to guard the perimeters of 40 or 50 chief target areas Three Zeuses have been fired in recent weeks to test their aerodynamic qualities only The first try was a success The others were failures Going
