(Staff Photo by MacLeod) MOUNT I'OCONO ·- The conduct of Mount I'ocono Airport Aulhorily chairman, I/jRoy beugler, was criticised Times- day nighl by Kugene l/icke, fixed base operator who called an informal meeting of Ihe authority members. I-ocke accused Dengler of endangering Ills bid to become the fixed base operator al Ihe llazlctoii Airport. The accusalions were based on statements Dengler made in a taped telephone interview aired over radio .station WAX!,, in Ha/lolon al 7:30 a.m. Wednesday. Other authority members present at the informal meeting agreed, after listening to a portion of a transcript of Deng- Icr's taped interview obtained by the I'ocono liecord, that !.cke's bid lo become Ihe fixed base operator at Ha/.leton was endangered. Dengler said he was at first unaware he was being interviewed by a radio station and when lie realized that lie was, requested that his comments not bo used. "1 was led lo believe, by whomever I talked to, that my wishes (for not broadcasting his c o m m o n t s ) w o u 1 d b e r e s p e c t e d , " Dengler s a i d Thursday night. The taped interview, authority members said, was more favorable to Walter Hoffman, Jr., owner of Pocono Airlines, rather than lo Ixicke, president of Aviation Services International. Hoffman also bid lo become (he operator at the Ha'/.leton Airport. Dengler, after the more than two-hour meeting, which at times became very healed and turned into an exchange of personal allack, said he wanted to do nothing more than to paint a favorable picture of the airport's operation. Denglftr said he always had in mind to show that Locke was doing a good service at the local airport. He also said that the radio interview must have purposely been slanted in favor of Hoffman by the questions posed to Dengler. After listening to the taped transcript more than once, authority members wondered why Dengler was contacted in Ihe first place. Dam site appraisals due Monday S T R O U D S B U R G - T h e r e s u l t s of a r e c e n t land appraisal of sites for the Upper Brodbcads Creek Flood Control plan are e x p e c t e d to be released to the Monroe County Commissioners Monday il was revealed Thursday night by Elwood Hintzc, board chairman. S o m e i n f o r m e d persons believe the land appraisal figures may even by ready today but would not divulge what they may be although Mrs. Nancy Shukailis said she felt the lotal figure would be far above the $250,000 approved by area voters by referendum as the sum lo authorize the county to spend. B o t h H i n t z e a n d M r s . Shukaitis said the figures, for both a lolal and individual parcel appraisals, will be ready in lime for a still tentative May 7 meeting with Stale Soil C o n s e r v a t i o n o f f i c i a l s i n Harrisburg lo discuss the project. According to Walter Dreher. contracted by the county to conduct the land appraisal the figures, "will be ready in lime." Hint/e indicated, however, thai if the figure is revealed Monday it will not be made public so as nol lo interfere with negotiations with landowners involved. Mrs. Shukaitis said, "I think Ihey (the appraisers I may have the figure for us tomorrow (Friday) but added lhal in her belief no definite appointment has been made for a Harrisburg meeting May 7. Originally the session was planned lo discuss the possible deletion of Ihe controversial Grisconi Creek dam sile on Huck Hill Kails property. Mrs, Shukailis raised (he jxissibility Thursday nighl thai Ihe more powerful landowners, namely Mick Hill Falls Co., and Skytop, liv, may bring in (heir own fact finders to b e t t e r p r e s e n t a c a s e for their contentions in the dam-site p l a n s t h a t would r e q u i r e p o r t i o n s o f I h e r e s o r t s ' property. lliulw said Thursday night thill the May 7 dale is "still (dilative" and "won't be affirmed unlil Monday." He added lhal, '"We will he in a posilion to find mil whal we should and shouldn't do." Dengler, on Ihe taped interview, was asked by Ihe radio station's news director about n e g o t i a t i o n s f o r c o n t r a c t renewal currently underway b e t w e e n I - o c k e a n d Ihe authority. Dtnglcr, when asked whether the contract with Locke would be renewed, said, "We don't know if we'll renew the contract." Ixieke admonished him for speaking on bc-lialf of the authority when the authority hadn't yd officially decided as a body to renew Ihe contra' 1 !. Dengler also said in the i n t e r v i e w , t h a t b e f o r e Hie contract is renewed, several changes will have lo be made. He also added, in answer lo a q u e s t i o n , l h a l l . o c k r requested ;in increase in the commission percentage tor operating Ihe aii|xr(. lxcke was upset about Dcng- ler's disclosure of contract renewal clauses which had previously been discussed in executive session, during which a I'oronu Record r(-|xirter was pri'si'iil anil did upon his request, withhold the information unlil official action was lakc/i. A u t h o r i t y m e m b e r s wilh whom Donglur later agreed, said damage was definitely (lone to l/icke and ASI and thai officials in flav.lcton should he given Ihe true story. Tlie llazlclori city council on Monday will officially act on bids submitted by Ixickc and Hoffman lor tlic o|Mi'atinn of the airport, To counteract Hie damaging interview, Dcngler, Thursday night, drafted a letter clarifying the radio telecast and staling lliat Mount Pocono Airjxrl is one of Ihe few nirporls operating in UK; black, "which is due lo I ho o|jeralion carried out by Mr. Ixjcki;." Copies of Ihe letter will be sent to Ihe lla/leton city council, radio station VVAXL, the lla/lelon newspaper and Ihe I'ocono Record. The Pocono Record chr y sler confirms --7- building The Stroudsburqs, Pa. Fri., May 3, 1968 Dial 421-3000 Raymond Serfass, Stroudsburg High's senior class guidance counselor is surrounded by four pretty seniors, soon to be studying nursing in area schools. Left to right are Pat Albertson, Joanne Fleming, Susan Sharer, all who will attend Reading School of Nursing and Yvonne Klingel, Allentown General School of Nursing. 289 high school seniors planning college careers ByPETEGRADY Pocono Record Reporter STROUDSBURG - If you have it, your lifetime income will average V!52,000. If you don't have it, your lifetime income will average $272,000 -and then you've got to have a high school education. Jt isn't always whal separates the haves from the have nots or the men from Ihe boys, but it certainly helps when looking for that first job with good pay. What is it? A college education. Pocono Catholic Missions High School leads the four area district schools in numbers of the senior class going on to some form of higher education. Forty out of 4G students in Ihe P.C..W. senior class will attend higher education institutions Ihis fall. That's a whopping 87 per cent. Fifty per cent of these students will go to four- year colleges. It is estimated that out of 54-1 area high school graduates, 28!) or 53 per cent will continue (heir higher education Ihis fall. Estimates include 45 seniors or l!ti per cent out of 12!) members of Pocono Mountain senior class will attend some form of college; Slroudsburg Area High, 203 graduates, 111 lo continue their education or -IS per ccnl; East Slroudsburg Area High School, 120 graduates, (;) to '·onlinue or f2 per cenl. and Pleasant Valley, 52 graduates, 30 to conlinuc or T7 per cenl. A total 28!1 area high school s e n i o r s will f u r t h e r t h e i r educational careers in Monroe County Ibis fall, a :!() per cent increase from 1!X3. The difference between sending your boy to Vale and Moravian i.s $1,200 a year; Yale's lotal costs, including tuition, personal expenses and travel, runs $Ii,HCKI a year; Moravian i.s $2,000 a year, according to Raymond Serfass, Stroudsburg High's senior class guidance counselor. Increased luilion costs and mounting pressures on college students, especially in their freshman year, account for Ihe bigge.'il changes in colleges in the last 10 years, said Serfass. In litt'J some Wall St. brokers jumped out of windows and in l!Xi!l some college freshmen, under Ihe strain and stress of sluilirK, jumped mil o( window. 1 ., Serfass noled. prospective college students aim way over their mark and try to get into a college "beyond their ability." He said that high school seniors should not accept "backdoor admission policies" to colleges. That rich uncle or having pull with a member of Ihe board of trustees might get you "in" to some colleges but if you find you can't make the grade you'll wind up oj) the outside looking in. Most scholarships are given on a basis of financial need. A .student might be average or above average but lie must have a legitimate financial need to qualify for a scholarship, Serfass noted. Whal do some of the Slrouds- burg students say to Serfass take when they come back from thai freshman year' in college'.' "It's lough." "It's tough and I love it." "It's tough and I can't it." No matter how you slice that first year, it's still tough. One college booklet. "Facing Facts About Your College Career," points out the two biggest problems which face students in Iheir first few mouths as freshmen. They are. loneliness learning to deal with independently. In high school the teacher focuses on the pupil but in college he aims for the subject matter. One of Serfass's strongest maxims i.s Dial "students .should make the final decision!' and time CI.KVKI.AN!), Ohio -- The !·'.! ii'-l.ackawanna Railway Co. will establish what was officially termed as a "public facility" on a .ID-acre site near Mt. Pocono which is expected lo lie used by Chrysler Motors Corp., railway officials announced lo The Pocono Record Thursday. In a news release approved by b o t h the r a i l w a y and Chrysler. The Record was (old thai the public facility will be . used "for unloading new automobiles and trucks shipped in by rail for tli.slribnlion lo consumer markets in the New Jersey and Pennsylvania area." Neither (he r a i l w a y nor Chrysler officially announced what land is being purchased for Hie facility. Railway officials in mid- March, however, inspected 222 acres owned by Melvin Kox of Philadelphia. Fox was wilh Ihe representatives during the inspection. When asked earlier this week whether negotiations have been made with Fox for the purchase of property, officials from the railway's New York Cily office slated "thai is what has been transpiring." "The railroad is exercising its option lo acquire Ihe necessary laud and will be spending approximately S850,0»0 in building the facility to improve tracks, ramps, loading equipment, fencing and lighting along with required flat cars equipped with t r i - l e v e l and bi-level aulo racks," the railroad official said in the official release. "The t e r m i n a l w i l l be available for use by any automobile manufacturer," the official continued, "but il is expected (hat Ihe first (o use the new facility will be Chrysler Motors Coi'p. The railway spokesman said thai "the principle origin of the automobiles will he in the Delroit area and Ihey will move- to Buffalo over the Norfolk and Western Railway, where Ihey will be turned over to the Erie- Lackawanna for movement to Ml. Pocono," The Norfolk and Western and Krje-l.ackawatiua Railways recently merged. Earlier this week, a railway official said that Erie-l.acka- watina had budgeted about $1 million for Ihe project. The official also staled at that lime thai announcement of the p r o j e c t w a s d e l a y e d lo ascertain whether Chrysler had acted on i t ' s options.
