TWENTY MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 18 1936 TWIN CITIES AREA IDEALLY LOCATED FOR STRATO FLIGHT AKERMAN TELLS OF ADVANTAGES Piccard Proposes Ascension to Be Made From Some Midwest Point. MINNEAPOLIS, 5)--The Twin Cities area is ideally located for Pean Piccard's proposed midwestern stratosphere flight this year, Prof. John D. Akerman, University of Minnesota aeronautical authority, said Wednesday. "The area is level and provides for a steady ascension without sudden air currents such as are found in hilly country," Professor Akerman declared. "Secondly, there are BO large bodies of water near to provide hazards in case of accident. The rolling or level country also adds to safety." Area Well Suited. Professor Akerman asserted that the Twin Cities area is as well suited for such a flight as the Black Hills region where the national geographic-army stratosphere flight took place. "While there is no natural bowl to protect the balloon while it is being filled, the hazards of the actual ascension probably are less, professor Piccard demonstrated in Detroit several years ago to his own satisfaction that level country is ideal for such a flight." Goal 20 Mile Height. According to information available at the university, Piccard has pledges of material to cover two- thirds of the total cost of his proposed stratosphere flight. He still is making efforts to obtain backing for the remainder of the cost. If preparations are begun in April for the flight, it probably will not take place before midsummer, according to Professor Akerman. In a recent interview Professor and Madame Piccard stated they hope to rise to a height of 20 miles in their flight. Capt. Albert K. Stevens and Orville W. Anderson rose more than 14 miles in their, flight last year which originated in the Black Hills. :-: H E R E AND T H E R E : - : Miscellaneous Items From 125 Globe-Gazette Correspondents in North Iowa and Minnesota Rockford Concert Will Be Presented Thursday ROCKFORD--Lyall Smith, music director of the local high school, arranged a concert to be presented at the high school auditoiitim Thursday evening.
