MOKPAT. APKIL la, »4i CAB Rejects Low Cost Airline Plan Applicant Blamee .Refusal on Board'* ' Ignorance ef Proposal By Chirk* CwtHry 1 , tfnlted Pro* Aviation Writer WASHINTON, April 12. (UP) - «*rnue. U. Solomon w«nt« to run an airline whose stewardesses ar€ more than "glorified entertainers." But the civil Aeronautics Board SHJ-B no Out of Ignorance. Earn contends H« aerial busline, now a paper wutnt, I* called Atlantic All-lints. Solomon claim* he can charge a cent, a mile l ess u )!(n th< . hlgn . fainting carrier, which are patron- Iwd by well-to-do [oik. He also says he want.s no mall lubsidy and that's one of the main reasons he ha.s just filed a very agitated complaint with the board for refusing him routes In the recent Middle Atlantic and Boston- New Orleans cases, "In almost ruthless fashion" Sam alleges, the board questions his cost estimates, refusing him routes because it fears he would go broke. When the treasury, through ninil subsidy, pays the difference between ' estimated and actual costs, this,Is kfceplable, Solomon says. But the •Ttinard "refuses to permit private citizens io risk their money." says the petition for reconsideration of the two route cases. Explains Operations Solomon says the board shows '» complete lack of knowledge of Atlantic's proposal." which is to make air transportation available to people who can't afford to ride on present airlines. He says it would be done this way: The operation would be compact, embracing the Middle Atlantic area and a Washington-New Orleans route. There would be more • acats per plane, short hauls vvo-l eliminate luxury features. There j would be no free meals. Customers would carry their own baggage! aboard. I "The third member of the crew . is not to be a glorified entertainer j but is to perform positive functions." he said, Reservations would be held to * ' minimum. Th e price of a ticket would include ground transport to airports as well as flying. All this would bring air transportation within reach of 9,000.000 per- I sons to whom it now is denied. Solon .asserts. The present airlines ire shown a "studied unwilling«" to offer low-cost area service, he says. 'Solomon says his company spent- flSO.OOO on the route cases and the ' board .brushed him off with an allegedly ' unsupported finding that! his cost estimates were wrong and ; that.he would divert business" from ' other airlines. unK.r OOUKICT Home Fires Burn T5B Years Since 1790. 3 fire has burned steadily in this fireplace.

Air Force Unable To Carry On Long Distance Bombing , BELOIT, Wis., April 12. (UP) — pen. Carl Spanlz told newsmen here Saturday that despite Increased approbations, the United , states Ajr Force would be unable to undertake mass bomb'inc of enemy cities trom American bases. Spaalz who directed the devastation "saturation" .bombing of Germany and Japan, said a 5,000 mile non-stop flight of an Army bomber had "no great significance in establishing the feat as of strategic importance." "We have not yet reached the point where we can carry out. sustained bombing at great .distances, and I don't know when we will," Spaatz said. People who think they will be able to sit back in the'next war and let military aircraft do the Job are oil wet," he added. "They had better square up their thlng- ing with facts." Eniwetok Tests to Show How Much Atom Bomb Has Improved MOB XWB Sffffti U MyUr T WASHINGTON, April 11. <UP)_ The prim* nurpoM -of the atomic test* gain* on at Eniwelok in' to find out just how much better th* bomb has became ntnce Nmutkt, a scientific source ha» uld, "You don't have to go t» Eni- wetok to check »n alrplana bom* sight." he added, "und n lot rock- rig >nd guided mltuilM, they a««m to be dolnf a lot nf work with them right her* in 1h* united Staten."

In many other respects, the Bl- klnl tests turned out to be, "a scientific tele." "There hasn't been a genuinely scientific test of the bomb »tnce the first atomic explosion at Ala- mogorcto (N.
