LeMay Says1
Reds Ahead
In Bombers
Predicts RussiaCan
Beat U.S. by 1959
WASHINGTON (;') - General
Curtis LeMay estimates that by
1959 Russia will have enough long-
range bombers and nuclear weap-
ons to destroy the United States-
if Soviet airmen should get every
conceivable break in a surprise
This reluctant "guess" by the
commander of the Strategic Air
Command was made public yester-
day by the special Senate sub-
committee investigating relative
United States-Soviet airpower.
Estimate Made
The estimate was made against
the background of a situation in
which all the armed forces are
bidding for funds, and competing
with each other for what they
consider their rightful place in
the defense picture.
It was *included in nearly 200
pages of closed-door testimony,
from which 111 deletions were
made by Defense Department cen-
sors prior to release.
Gen. LeMay's opinion, based on
jet bomber programs of this coun-
try and intelligence estimates of
the Soviet, was produced in a
series of questions by Senator
Stuart A. Symington (D-Mo.),
chairman of the air power inquiry.
Russia Ahead
The general said that if data
supplied by the Central Intelli-
gence Agency are correct, the Rus-
sians will have nearly twice as
many long-range jet bombers as
this country by 1960 "so the ad-
vantage will be with the Russians."
Gen. LeMay said he could not
guess what the Kremlin leaders
will do then but added:
"From 1958, he is stronger in
long-range airpower than we are,
and it naturally follows that if he
is stronger, he may feel that he
should attack."
