Congress was asked today to halt federal spending for no'.v airports and divert available funds to installation of modern safety aids at existing major terminals. J> The recommendation was made ! by the Senate Commerce Committee, if finally approved by Co.i- Krcss, it presumably would kill most of the civil Aeronautic Administration's plans for starting work this year on 800 airports on a 5050 fiiiiinclng |jnsi s with slate and local governments. Specifically, the committee urged re-allocation of the $45,000,000 appropriated by the last, congress for the airport construction and improvement program. The money, It said, should be used instead to buy radar, radio, lighting and fog dispersal equipment at bigger airports liRiidling heavy traffic, loads. The recommendations were based on a two week air safety inquiry by a subcommittee headed by > Sen. Owen Brewstcr, B., Me. The report recognized thc CAA's "moral commitments" in having allocated $34,701.028 of the funds for new or improved fields. But it, noted th.ii President Truman had directed thai no more than $4,000,000 actually be spent before June 30. "In the face of the current crisis," thc report said, "there is much to be said for adequately equipping existing airports to serve tile safety of the (.raveling public before adding to the hazards by building more nil-ports." Greater Safety Urged The report praised the "remarkably high safety record" of United states airlines but said Congress should seek to eliminate all craslics if humanly possible." It urged that as many of the new aids as possible be installed by next Winter and that a pro- completed within is months. With the new devices, it said, 90 per cent of commercial air traffic could move in all weather conditions if improved traffic controls also can be worked out. The committee said installation of safety aids at the 1C6 key fields would i-cost an estimated $54,540.000. it indicated that rcallocalion or the $45,000,000, together with other pending or past appropriations, would make it possible to carry out thc program without asking • Congress for additional money. Airports which would benefit most under air transport association proposals listed .by..the com- 'rtilUee include Atlanta. New Orleans, Jacksonville, pla., Memphis and Miami. All these and possibly others would be equipped with ground control approach radar, radio in- sciumcnt landing systems and high intensity approach and runway lights. •LTTHgVILLB (AM.)
