Washington—Gathering of in
telligence for national security
is an historic role of govern
ments. The news of the downed
plane over Russia dramatically
focused attention on this ac
tivity hy the United States.
Most Significant While the
cloak and-dagger aspects of the!
event grabbed the headlines, it
must not be forgotten that the!
most significant conclusion to be'
readied from the event is that:
manned aircraft can penetrate'
Soviet land mass despite the
contrary boasts by the Soviet;
regime. This being demonstra
bly so, it strengthens my view!
that manned aircraft such as the
B-70 should never have been
eliminated by the President and:
defense officials. I have stated'
my objection to this policy in I
previous columns. The B-70.
would be capable of long-dis
tance, high altitude attacks any
where on the face of the earth.
The Soviets know this. There
fore it would be a potent de-j
terrent weapon in our arsenal."
Simply stated, my position is
that the United States must
possess the ability to wage con
ventional warfare against any'
aggressor, for 1 am not willing to.
put all reliance into a sophisti
cated missile system at this time.
We need both.

was made of me as to whether

Just what Congress finally:

ever to be the subject of lively
debate extending through the
1960 political campaign.
There is no doubt that this

HEW Secretary Flemming as a

The bill, by Rep. Porand (D-

beneficiaries —and the social se

Major differences between the

As soon as the Administration
proposal was made public, the
House Ways and Means Commit

agree on a compromise plan. A
new bill, along the lines of the
Forand bill, was promptly in
troduced by Senator McNamara

important to permit hasty ap

Sharp differences of opinion
with respect to the Admindstra

on Capitol Hill and elsewhere.
The American Medical Associ

the Forand bill was a long step
toward Socialism, said the Ad
ministration plan—like the For

meet the real problem.
There was severe criticism al
