Page A-2--INDEPENDENT L «TM "«"· «'"·' TM m " Flb ' * »" -L.A.C. S A Y Sr Airport Expansion Once again expansion of airport activities exploded in the City Council. Announcement that the Air Force was moving its training program to March Field near Riverside was the spark that started Tuesday's explosion. It was used as an argument to support widespread expansion of airport activities. The first move would be to get greater passenger service-which is not greatly opposed. But extension of freight service involving hundreds more daily landings and take-offs is the real issue. * * # One point made by Councilman Dooley is deserving of careful consideration. It is the argument used by supporters of extension of the runway to get the geople to vote for that project. Mr. Dooley says "the people voted these bonds for just one purpose--to help Douglas Aircraft." He demands that the people be permitted to vote again on the issue of greatly expanding the activities at the airport. Dooley can support his position by quoting "Bud" Ridings, who headed the committee supporting the bond issue. Ridings says "Long Beach has highly developed residential districts surrounding the airport and these people have been promised by many of us that the runway lengthening was done to insure a continued payroll at the Douglas plant and would not cause increased annoyance to them from other uses." * * * On August 25th of last year John Biby of the Douglas company reminded the City Council that his company had stated in a letter to the Council--before the bond issue vote--that the Douglas activities would not increase more than three flights a day due to the longer runway. He said this had been lived up to by the company. Those opposing the bond issue were vigorous in pointing out the extended runway would mean greater noise and danger. The people voted the bonds because they wanted to safeguard the Douglas payroll and believed those who promised there would be no extensive increase in airport activities. The record of these promises is clear. To ignore them now means breaking faith with the people who in good faith accepted them. * * * This writer has not opposed extension of passenger services. But he is opposed to the extension of freight service because it will ultimately mean hundreds of large cargo planes making this their terminus. It can mean an endless stream of these planes day and night over the city. It may be the people would approve of such activity. But they are entitled to the right to vote on such a vital issue. This is especially true when it was an issue when the people voted for the airport bonds. If the representation made them during the campaign is to be disregarded, how can they be expected to trust any future promises made them? It is their city and their homes that are involved. They have the right to clear up any misunderstanding over this issue. Anyone who supported the bond issue with any reservation concerning these statements was duty bound to make his position clear. We know of none of those now advocating wide expansion of the airport activities who did so.--L.A.C. (L.A.C.'i column, by L. A.
