Mich. <UI>> — Here at the world's lurgest com- uercial airport, where not long ago letiry Ford was building bombers, he airlines arf Irylnif a radlcnt cooperative, experiment, a union strt- .lon o! tlie air tvfie. It Involve* swallowing a lot of pride and it is costing heavily ai ilrst; but it may pay well in tl\e ong run. A similar experiment also Is being tried at the CovingUm, Ky., airport, which serves Cincinnati. O, If It works in those places, it will be extended to other cities. A gigantic chunk of tlie former bomber nltuvt here is being turned into a terminal bordering on the fantastic. Inside, anil out on the two long ramps where 2D tour-engine transports can load at once, the sumo employes work for all the airlines serving near-by Detroit.

Kmerseney Committee Funclinn The committee met daily beginning Sept. 1 and became India's temporary government. It was responsible' only to the cabinet. Its objective was to pull the monkey wrenches out of Uic administrative machinery and put the Kovernmcnt back on a functioning basis. It had two seemingly Impossible coals. The first was establishment of lav.- and order. The second 'was the safe movement of Hie greatest migration of rclugces in modern history. The mechanics with which tlie committee operated were simple Nothing brought up in one ol the afternoon meetings could ever be shelved. II either was acted upon by the properly delegated authority or wa.s eliminated. There wa» no alibi, no buck-passing. The committee handled everything from feeding refugees to sotting up public address systems »l their camps. All matters were referred '0 a department head, and a complete report was expected in 34 hours. When the Delhi riots broke IM Sept. U. a similar committee was set up to deal with them on an Identical basis . The emergency committee, as late BS R lew days a&o. found il ncces- I sary to meet only twice a week. If the dominion pulls out of the chati- lic situation, it will be deeply indebted to tho committee, which pave it a breathing spell al a lime when it was gasping its last. .11 Idle except when their line's planes are In—all have been dls- -nacri with, Cost Sl.000,000 Tlie airport, leased from the Uni- •crslly of Michigan, which ncQuired t from the War Assets Adtn'mistra- lion. is run by the Airlines National Terminal Services Corp., an org:i- nlisalton set up by the presidents of the scheduled airlines. It cost »500.- in sloe* subscriptions, and another 000 in stock subscriptions, and an- olher »500.000 borrowed from a bank, to get underway. In an other 80 to 90 days the terminal will be complete, Hoy Callahan, corporation president, said in in interview, and then this Is what will greet passengers: The waiting room will dwarf any they ever saw. Arriving by express bus or l|mousin<^ they will enter through eithtr of two massive doors. Immediately'beyond the doors will be beauty parlors, barber shop, haberdashers, coffee shop and all manner 61 other concessions. On one side will be a ncwsrccl theater and ,a poslolfice. On the second floor will be a cocktail lounge, providing arrangements can be mane in a "dry" county. Alonj the wall facing the ramps, already functioning, is the tickc. counter. Here there arc no Ions lines before one airline's booth while another lino's employes remain idle.> All ticket agents work for all the airlines, except for Eastern Air Lints, which still maintains its own box. A huge board shows when arrivals and departures are scheduled. An attractive girl works the hoard and supplement its information with verbal announcements broadcast throughout the terminal. Tu-n Main Question* In one section will be the customs and immigration odicers. expediting International travelers through & separate door to Ihfi ramps. ' Two main nuestions arise: Will the co-operative work and will it pay? Callahan and Harold Parker, airport manager, think both answers will be yes. Ca'lahan says within a reasonable time savings to the airlines probably will amount to 33 per cent. He already begins to foresee reduction in the number of em- ployes, now 4GO.

Callahan said landing fees here ilrciuly are about, half what they are in Chicago and in 18 to 21 months the corporation will break even on them.
