Mr. Filla, who was an army army pilot instructor, was recently recently released from the Gulf Coast training command because training activities are being curtailed. Recently Filla has been looking looking over the situation here in Washington since this city has been mentioned as a place on the route for mail pickups. As things develop in the postwar period to come, he believes that an airport here will be used by passenger and commercial planes. Mr. Filla told the council that the most important thing about an airport is the selection of the proper spot. In his opinion there is no place on this side of the river suitable for an airport airport for Washington. The fdeal location, Filla said, is across the river in Warren County near the bridge and east of highway 47. He advised that 100 acres be acquired by rental first, with an option to purchase later with whatever additional ground is required He said that rumvays should be at least 3,000 ft. long with an additional 500 feet for clearance at each end." No con crete lunways would be required required at the beginning, as the land could be seeded to grass, clover or alfalfa. With the exception exception of removing a few trees little work would have to be done to get the land in shape. The fa.t that numbers of planes have been landing there, is proof that the flyers consider this location the best to be found here, Filla said. The council decided to give the airport matter further consideration consideration and may discuss the question again at its next regu-ar regu-ar regu-ar meeting.-Washington meeting.-Washington meeting.-Washington Citizen
