Survey Sent to CAB for Study of Local Needs City Wants Direct Service to Chicago By CARL WRIGHT One of the most important decisions influencing the future of the Mason City municipal airport will come out of the test case, Docket 3261, which comes before the CAB in Washington, D. C., Monday. It i^ a request for CAB to set aside an order that Mason City and Waterloo cannot be served by Mid-Continent Airlines on the same route. If the restriction is removed, Mid-Continent Airlines has promised 2 additional flights daily at the local port, making one each way in the morning and the same in the afternoon, one of these flights going by way of Waterloo. H. C. Timber-lake, Minneapolis economic consultant, and B. A. Webster, of Mason City, will be representing Mason City at the hearing in Washington. The city of Mason City has prepared facts, figures and related data showing the need for additional air transport service beyond the north-south route for the North Central Iowa community at the Mason City Municipal airport. This exhibit was filed with CAB July 15. In it are taken up the proposed service, the need for service and the traffic potentiality. Studies Made All conceivable means were used to determine the air needs and included studies on mail, air travel, railroads, express, hotel registrations, firms and their branch relationships, salesmen and their supervising offices, telephone calls, telegrams, conventions and banks. This information was compiled into a book and is to be used at the hearing to show the need for additional airline service beyond the north-south route. The results of this work will be apparent in the near future and the real meaning will be reflected in all businesses and all forms of transportation, according to Jim Wagner, airport manager. Never before has a community of this size undertaken such a project and already Mason City has received requests for additional copies from interested parties. Max Hedrick of the Loring Supply company assembled the data into typed form for presentation, and Mrs. Glen H. Gilbert greatly assisted in gathering the material. Serves 167,400 People Services for T/Sgt.

Attend Services AIRPORT GARAGE ERECTED—A new prefabricated garage was erected at the Mason City Municipal airport during the past year to house all of the airport mainten- Lock Photo ance equipment. This building is 32 by 78 feet and has 6 overhead doors. A great savings is realized by the city by keeping all of the airport equipment inside. east and west and 24.6 north and south. East-West Favored A break-dowi) .of the survey showed that 84 per cent of air travel would be east and west if service were available. Mason City was shown to be a mail distribution center, with 5 railroads, which is as many as any city in the state. The proximity of Clear Lake, as a summer resort, and the large number of conventions held here, make up a large amount of potential air travel. Jim Wagner, airport manager, showed in his annual report to the city for the year 1947-48 that of every dollar in taxes paid to the county, 3 cents went to the airport. During the year $17,724 was used for maintenance of the port. Deducting the port's income, $5,605, from this amount and dividing by 30,000 the estimated population of Mason City, the per capita annual maintenance was 40 cents. Many Changes Made The year saw a number of changes and improvements at the airport. A new prefabricated metal garage was erected, which houses the airport maintenance equipment. The airport fire truck, added this year, is a modified version of a commercial jeep with 4 wheel drive. It is equipped with a 300 gallon tank trailer, a front end pump for 4 hoses, and several hand fire extinguishers. During the year Harold Stassen stopped on a flight to St. Louis. Mohawk Airways sponsored a Fly-iri-Breakfast and air show. More than 60 planes and approximately 400 persons were guests of Mohawk Airways and an estimated 2,000 saw the air show.

The exhibits show that the Mason City Municipal airport serves •an area -from Algona to Charles City and from Hampton to Northwood, with an estimated population of 167,400 people. The inclusion of Mason City in an east- west route would add 24 miles to a route already established between Sioux City and Chicago, according to the survey. Data gathered lor presentation showed marked reductions of fares as well as time saved, provided the new schedule would be put, into effect. It was sho^rn that outgoing airmail was large east and west and small north and south over a given period. First class mail for the same period was predominantly east and west. Express shipments were 66.7 per cent east and west compared to 33.3 per cent north and south. Although long distance telephone calls were 42.1 per cent east and west compared to 57.9 per cent north and south, telegrams indicating travel were 64.2 per cent east and west and 35.8 per cent north and south.
