Mr. Hyan, executive vice president of the company and youngest airline operator in the United States, continued by stating he believed establishment of a regular airline route through Mason City, carrying passengers and air mail, would be contingent only oil adequate local airline equipment--a site for an airport large enough to permit landing of the large planes and funds with which the federal government can be approached to provide proper development of the airport site. · An application of convenience and necessity has been placed on file with the Civil Aeronautics authority in Washington, the speaker went on, for a direct route between Kansas City, Des Moines, Mason City and St. Paul. He said the postoffice department is definitely interested in this route, which would take only 3V' hours Between Kansas City and the Twin Is Logical Place Mr. Ryan, who comes from a "amous family of successful promoters, said he spent the afternoon in Mason City viewing present airport facilities and surveying jusiness and industrial activities, rle said his observations con- ·inced him that Mason City was a ogical center for first class air- ine service. "We would like to serve Mason lity with this ilew form of rapid' transportation," Mr. Ryan as- . anfl Don TOeder, president of the Junior Chamber local Juni Today's Biggest Clothing Values Spring woolens noiv on display Tailored (a your individual measurements.

Mr. Ryan later conferred with .he aviation committee o£ the 'hainber of Commerce. It was rought out that the Civil Aero- autics Authority requires, for ap- rovai of a regular station, an irport with runways of 3,500 feet i four directions. In addition to he site, which would have to be n title of the city, funds for de- elopmfint are required, which r ould be matched with federal unds. "The Mid-Continent Airlines is main north and south line," Mr. yan said, "and it would be logi- al for the CAA to approve a route hrough Mason City in behalf of M-Continent, to provide devel- ?ment of air service without ompetition to any existing line." 90 at Meeting A crowd of 90 which attended le meeting also heard John E. r ynne, counsel for Mid-Continent i Washington, who added to Mr. yan r s comments the interest of is company in serving Mason ity. if adequate facilities can be rovided here. He stressed that he CAA does not permit the irge, last planes to use an air- ort until certain specifications re met. He believed the time was pe for Mason City to take ad- antage of opportunities and ob- ain the service. Mr. Wynne, who was a flyer for the army in the World war, was formerly with the department of commerce in the airport division. He was also in charge of the Washington airport for several years and consequently is well ac- committee, left, guamted with the standards required of airports.
