Parsons Ranks U. S.
Science and Industry
Tops in New Weapons
By John A. Giles
Rear Admiral W. 8. Parsons de
clared today this Nation’s ‘‘po
tent team” of science and industry
had ‘‘a margin over any other
team In the world from all that
we know” In the development of
new and devastating weapons.
‘‘But it’s dangerous to count on
that margin,” said the admiral,
who Is a member of the National
Military Establishment's highly
secret Weapons Evaluation Group.
“We must consider that we
have tremendous potentials in our
science and industry, particularly
in the fields of guided missiles
and aeroballastics. Even so, we
must count on a minimum five
year lag in peacetime between a
decision on a weapon needed to
meet a particular combat situa
tion and development of that
In an interview, following a
speech last night at a dinner of
the American Physical Society at
White Oak (Md.t Naval Ordnance
Laboratory, Admiral Parsons said
he was "semi-optimistic” about
the production of air-to-air and
ground-to-air guided missiles
"within the next few years.”
But he saw the development of
an Inter-continental guided mis
sile, which some day might re
place the long-range strategic
piloted bomber as a long-range
project "in several senses of the
He held out no hope for a pro
totype of the long-range guided
missile within the forseeable fu
ture, but he said “progress is be
ing made.”
The admiral, who formerly was
a member of the military liaison
committee to the Atomic Energy
Commission, commented that it
would be "very difficult to repro
duce in peacetime” the concen
tration of scientific and industrial
talent and huge expenditures that
made possible development of the
atomic bomb in a relatively short
time so that long-range guided
missiles could be quickly de
i veloped.
The admiral said guided mis
sile research "costs a lot, but when
you get into the hardware < pro
duction stage, it really becomes
astronomical.” He pointed out
that there is always a complete
loss with the firing of the weapon
making it a "thousand times as
expensive” as research where pro
totypes are not destroyed in tests.
