U.S. officials, without confir-
ming the report ' from the Ne,
4t China News Agency, referred tC
statements by Secretary of De-
fense Robert S. McNamara in
Paris last December saying Chi-
nese ability to attack is years
At that time, the Pehtagon chief
said the Chinese were making an
intensive effort to develop a me-
diun-range ballistic missile which
possibly could become operationa)
as early as 1967.
McNamara also estimated pub-
licly the Chinese might be able t
deploy intercontinental ballistic
" missiles as early as 1975.
U.S. officials said there will be
no immediate step-up in American
efforts to establish an antiballistic
missile defense against the type
of attack China might be able to
mount in the mid 1970s.
The United States has spent
about $2 billion in developing an
antiballistic missile defense sys-
tem known as Nike X.
U.S. officials said Thursday that
the Chinese report, which seems
to indicate they now have the
means to deliver an atomic war-
head for some unspecified dis-
tance, still does not necessitate
spending money on preproduction
of the controversial Nike X sys-
Buththese officials indicated
that the Chinese test, if it oc-
curred, will lead to complete as-
sessment of the antimissile de-
fense budget for fiscal 1968.
While Communist China has
been working on ICBM's, officials
said it is doubtful their warhead-
equipped missiles could be deploy-
ed in less than a decade.'
McNamara is said to believe this
provides the United States with
adequate time for determining ex-
actly what the Nike X system
should consist of.
Nike X Saved
Development work on the Nike
G, however, will continue.
Some members of Congress have
differed with McNamara on just
how fast the United States should
move toward defending against
the Chinese atomic threat, and
what components should go into
the Nike X system.
Sen. Richard B. Russell, D-Ga.,
chairman of the Senate Armed
Services Committee, said recently,
"We have too much to lose to rely
complacently on an assumption
that the Chinese Communists will'
not have a ballistic missile capa-
bility before he can deploy a bal-
4 listic missile defense."
