Give Prod To T-Y Translator Application Washington, D. C. —Congressman Wiley Maye today revealed he has been assured by the Federal Communications Commission that it will act on an application for a new TV translator tower near Algona within the next ten days. Mayne pressed the FCC for immediate action after receiving inquiries from several Algonans. He found no action had been taken although the application had been gathering dust in the Commission's files since August 11. The applicant station, KGLO (Channel 3) at Mason City, plans to carry its programs by wire to the Algona tower, from which its transmitter signal is expected to reach sets wjthin a radius of 15 or 20 miles. "I am happy my contact with the FCC has produced a promise to expedite action on this tower," Mayne commented. "The situation is urgent in that approval must arrive in time to permit sinking tower footings before the ground freezes. Otherwise, viewers will have to wait until spring for improved reception." Mayne said the broadcast facilities divison of the FCC had already cleared the tower height with the Federal Aviation Agency, the government bureau having jurisdiction over any possible hindrance to air traffic.
