HONDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, »«J BLTnnCVILLB (ARK.y COURIER PAGE THREE CAA Is Planning Changes in Air Safety Procedures i WASHINGTON (AP) — The Civil Aeronautics Administration said today it may eliminate some of its air safety activities and transfer some other safety functions to the aviation industry.

The proposals, it said, "represent a basis for discussions' with industry rather than a firm CAA position." A committee of four CAA offi- Why Grow More Cotton Now?

Giles, director of the Delta Branch Experiment State for the State of Mississippi at Oreenville. talked before the 600 people attending the meeting. Some 2,500 had been expected to attend. Giles said farmers need to continue to learn how to produce more cotton per acre because of government controls on cotton acreage. He said the unit cost must be reduced by Increasing the yield. Tile all-day meetintr 'Was sponsored by Sikeston Chamber 01 Commerce, Missouri University College of Agriculture and Agriculture Extension Service. It was held at the experiment field one mile south of here. The first such program of its type in the Boolheel opened with a tour of research plots at the experiment station.

May Concern: in Manila Wednesday visiting A meeting of tile Board of pirec- friends. Rev. Cate is the former cials drafted the proposals as an outgrowth of President Eisenhower's budget message to Congress, in which the President siad: Won't Affect sniety "With the Increasing maturity of Civil aviation, the federal government soon should be able to reduce substantially its safety promotion and enforcement activities without affecting the present high level of safety. I have requested the early preparation of a plan, in cooperation with industry, to achieve this objective." Some of the proposed changes would require congressional action to amend the Civil Aeronautics Act, while others could be adopted by executive branch action. One proposal would make "manufacturers of proven capabilities" responsible for determining that new aircraft meet civil air regulations. CAA would grant a certificate for a new plane on this basis rather than by making its own Investigation as at present. Another proposal would elegate to "designated air carrier examiners" the responsibility for giving practical examinations to pilots and others applying for. certificates to fly commercial planes. The industry examiners also .would issue temporary certificates for applicants passing the tests. Annual relnspection of small aircraft would be eliminated, as would th° issuing of airman identification cars. MANILA NEWS BJ !
