  • Description

    DEMOCRATIC SENATOR STUART SYMINGTON, A MEMBER OF THE SENATE ARMED SERVICES COMMITTEE, AND A "FRIEND" OF THE UNITED STATES AIR FORCE. IS LEADING A GROWING FIGHT TO SAVE THE "SKYBOLT" MISSILE PROGRAMME.

    THE U.S. DECISION TO SCRAP IT HAS CAUSED AN UROAR IN BRITAIN. "SKYBOLT" (AN AIR-TO-GROUND MISSILE) WAS TO HAVE BEEN THE MAINSTAY OF BRITAIN'S NUCLEAR ARSENAL. PRESIDENT KENNEDY HAS DEFENDED THE ELIMINATION OF THE PROGRAMME, STATING THAT HIS ADMINISTRATION DID NOT BELIEVE THE WEAPONS WAS WORTH THE TWO-AND-A-HALF-BILLION DOLLARS NEEDED TO FULLY DEVELOP IT.

    HOWEVER, SENATOR SYMINGTON FEELS DIFFERENTLY. (SOF)
