MIT Prof Dies in Fall From Hotel Naval Cites Soviets on Red Rockets Fired Beneath Surface Believed Probable WASHINGTON Arleigh Burke, chief of naval operations, said today Russia probably has submarines able to launch ballistic missiles. The United States still is only building the first of its submarines which will be able lo launch Polaris mis- siles. At a news conference, Burke was asked if Russian submarines now are able to fire only the slow, air-breath- ing missiles or the swift, high protectory ballistic missiles. He replied: "I think they probably have both." He added that the Russians have been doing a great deal of work in the submarine and missile field. Burke did not say how many ballistic-mis- sile submarines he thought Russia might have. A UNTIL NOW, U.S. Navy officials had suggested that Soviet submarines probably were capable of handling only the air-breathing missiles Relatively slow, there are essentially unmanned, robot- controlled bombers which can be intercepted by some anti- aircraft missiles.
