Navy Bill Approved WASHINGTON, D. C, May 1 UP.— The House Armed Service committee, today approved without a dissenting vote a bill to let the Navy start work on a 35,000,000 modernization program, including construction of an atomic-powered submarine. The bill cleared the committee after Adm. Forrest P. Sherman, chief of Naval operations, told the lawmakers the Navy hopes to" complete its atomic submarine in three years. Sherman also testified, without elaboration, that the Navy has guided missiles — designed primarily for use against aircraft — good enough to be installed aboard ship right now.
