Neither Side Has Operational 1CBM, McElroy Insists WASHINGTON secretary of Defense Neil McElroy told- senators to- day that if Soviet Russia starts a war tomorrow, or in the near future, the'put- come will be decided -by long-range bombers'in which the United States is superior. Neither the Soviet nor' tfiis country now has an operational inter-continental ballistic mis- sile, McElroy-insisted. And he questioned that' Russia's vast submarine fleet could now in- flict heavy damage on this country by attacks with short-range, missiles. McElroy's estimate of the relative U.S.-Soviet strength came during two hours of sharp questioning at public hearings. In the course of his testi- mony, McElroy said: 1. This-country's first ICRtt operational base will be irt.ijse at Camp Cooke, Calif., next June. (Presumably the spcre- :ary was referring to Vanden- serg Air Force Base, formerly Camp Cooke.) Later, Edwin Weisl, counsel for the Senate investigators, spoke of McElroy's testimony as to the effect that "the first operational squadron of ICBMs will be ready in July (sic) of this year at Camp Cooke." Mc- Elroy did not take exception to this summation, Asked by :Welsl whether it would be a "soft" base, McEN roy saici it would. Missilemen speak of a base where the launchers are above ground as soft base as contrasted to n underground hard base. 2. It IB true that tome range las been sacrificed for the.Po- aris missile.

Symington, a former Air Force secretary of the Truman administration and frequent critic of Eisenhower's defense program, said he had been briefed on Soviet ICBM nu- merous times in recent months by the Central Intelligence Agency, headed by Director Allen Dulles.

Four blocks from where an elderly woman was struck and killed by a hit-run car Wednesday ntght, Thorn35 G. Jacobson, 39, sat watching out of his front-room window. His wife, Lois, said he had seemed distracted when he came home, but ate dinner and visited with her and their 12-year-old son, Rich- ard. Nothing was said in their conversations about the acci- dent a short distance away in which Mrs. Sarah Ncstoi, 78, was fatally injured. MRS. JACOBSON said that after eating, her husband went into the bedroom and "rummaged around" as if he were looking for something. Then'he sat in a chair in front of the living-room win- dow and waited. About two hours later, State Patrol Sgt. Cliff Gowlei and State Patrolman Paul Greene drove up. They matched glass fragments from the death car with the shattered head- lights on Jacobson's small foreign-built auto. AS THEY turned toward the house they saw Jacobson arise from his chair as if to come to the front door.- The officers knocked, and at that moment they heard a shot. In (he bedroom they found Jacobson lying on the floor, a bullet wound in his left temple. Beneath him was a 25-caliber automatic. He died a short time later at Everett General Hospital. Snohomish county coroner Ken Baker listed it as a suicide. ;
