Cost of Arms
To the Editors: After reading the cover story "How to Spend a Trillion" [July 27], one can hardly avoid a feeling of disquiet considering the accounts of manpower shortages, equipment failures, indecision about future weapons and industry's inability to fulfill military needs. At least we now have an Administration ready to address the problem realistically.
