AN VO UKC TO &UV THI5 LITTLE-. «£jf X^eCAT^^^ Ml Air Force Hopes To Have 600 B-52 Bombers by 1959 WASHINGTON, UP—Increasing its goal by 100, the Air Force now hopes to have 600 long-range B-52 jet bombers by 1959. * Lt. Gen. C. S. Irvine, deputy chief of staff in charge of Air Force production, gave the figures in secret testimony released in heavily censored form Wednesday by a special armed services sub committee. In his testimony, Irvine also ex pressed the “personal feeling” th^s country still holds an over-all lead over Russian air power. But un less positive action is taken, he added, “they are going to be ahead of us in all areas.” The subcommittee, headed by Sen. Symington, meantime sum moned Trevor Gardner, former research and development official for the Air Force, to testify pub licly on relative Soviet and U.S. air strength. Gardner quit as an assistant secretary of the Air Force in Feb ruary, protesting what he termed a lack of emphasis on develop ment of missiles and other new air power weapons. Irvine told the Senate subcom mittee the old goal of 500 of the B-52 bombers was increased re cently when production goals were boosted from 17 to 20 a month. The planes, costing about $8Vz million each, now are being produced at the rate of about six a month. He disclosed also plans for an eventual 400-plane fleet of KC-15 jet tankers to refuel the bombers.
