Air show a financial failure By NICK LAMBBRTO The air show at the Ottumwa Industrial Airport last weekend was an artistic success but a | financial flop. "As a financial venture it I was not a great success," said Bob Curtin, general manager of the sponsoring organization, Antique Airmen, Inc., of Skokie, 111. "If we break even I we'll be lucky." Curtin estimated that about I $40,000 was paid by about 8,000 customers Saturday and 12,000 I Sunday. The show featured the Navy I Blue Angels precision flying team, and the U.S. Army's Golden Knights parachute team and Silver Eagles helicopter I team. Curtin said he had received I "nothing but good reports" I about the show. "It was a good thing for Ot- Itumwa and the whole commu- |nity,"hesaid. "I think a program like this I is important for central Iowa. I hope we sponsor another next | year." ietaicd to Pay Curtin said he had received a of a person who refused Ito'pay admission to the airport mds for the show Sunday, person protested that view- rs of an air show in which tax- supported " Navy and Army [aviators participated could not charged admission. The ticket prices for the Ishoim ranged from $1 to IS. Spokesmen for the Blue Angels and the Defense Depart- ...,nt said that demonstrations Ijy the Navy and Army flight earns are free to the public if from an Army, Navy or MrTorce installation. "You couldn't charge tax- lay e r s admission to enter) places that they as taxpayers Already own," one spokesman aid. ?an Charge If a civic organization spon- i the appearance of the Blue els at an air show staged land not federally owned ,»uch as a municipal airport, then the sponsoring organization can charge admission, the spokesmen said. The profits, if any, must go to a worthy cause. T In turn, the sponsoring organization must pay the Blue Angels $1,500 a day for their living costs at the site. The Silver Eagles were paid $750 and the Golden Eagles $1,050 for their living expenses at Ottumwa. In addition, Curtin said, the sponsoring organization must pay the difference in fuel costs from the contract price paid by the Navy, for instance, and what must be paid local suppliers at the Ottumwa airport. "I don't know how much it will be," Curtin said, "probably several thousand dollars."Antique Show Curtin said the organization is sponsoring an antique,plane show Saturday and Sunday at the Ottumwa Airport. Admission is $2 for adults, children -free;— "We hope to attract about 200 antiques and classics," Curtin said. N The Antique Airplane Association is holding its twenty- i second annual fly-in at Antique ffprA-lrport near Blakesburg ^through Sept. 1, with the gene- ;t$ral public invited, on Sept. 1. :; |f Admission is $1. ;*| The Association has about v|$«,000 members. The Airmen isSp' group, founded two years ago, * has about 400 members.

Benign nodule removed from astronaut's lung HOUSTON, TEX. (AP) Surgeons removed a small, benign nodule from the. left lung o f astronaut Donald K. Slayton on Tuesday and said the s paceman should recover fully. Dr. Charles Berry, Slay- on's longtime physician, said a three- to four- c e n t i m e ter DONALD K. "SLAYTON wedge was removed from Slayton's lung and that studies showed that a nodule within the specimen was not malignant. "Frozen sections of the nodule revealed no evidence of malignancy," Berry said at a news' conference following the 2tt-houf operation. He said there is no way to determine^what caused the nodule and there was no evidence of other lesions. After Flight Slayton, 51, one of the nation's original seven Mercury astronauts, was discovered to have the lesion — about the size of a pencil eraser —. during detailed X-ray examinations following the Apollo-Soyuz spaceflight. Slayton and his crewmates; Thomas P. Stafford and Vance Brand, inhaled poison gas during the final minutes of their mission last month. They were confined to a Hawaiian hospital and doctors conducting detailed X-rays found the nodule in Slayton's lung. Berry called Slayton "an extremely lucky man." The odds are about 50-50 in persons of this age range, slightly more toward malignancy with a history of previous smoking such as Mr. Slayton has," Berry said. Slayton was a moderate to heavy smoker for about 30 years but quit the habit 2V4 years ago. Berry said Slayton was recovering well with normal and stable vital signs and awakened shortly after leaving the surgical ward. The physician said when he told the astronaut the tumor was benign Slayton responded: "That's good." Return to Flying "I fully expect to see him qualified to return to flying status," said Berry, former chief flight surgeon for the space agency. Slayton's wife, Marjory, waited near the surgical ward "Johnny W •Urrlnf —ftUS— "lit WALT DISNIr I •AMII nu«MOUN»WM0TMOU«HTMC WAI A IACCOON 7 »M CONTINUOUS THiATli ISM, 1336 E.

Slayton is expected to be hospitalized another 10-12 days. Berry said it is "a reasonable expectation" that Slayton will be able to make a Sept. 22 tour of the Soviet Union with his Apollo crewmates and with the two cosmonauts of the Soyuz. rate in Iowa The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate* in Iowa during July was estimated Tuesday at 5.9 per cent of the state's labor force, the same rate that had been projected earlier this month by the Iowa Employment Security Commission. The July rate for Iowa was two-tenths per cent below the 6.1 per cent June level and 2.5 per cent below the nationally seasonally adjusted unemployment rate of 8.4 per cent. The unadjusted unemployment rate for July also remained unchanged from the 6 per cent forecast on Aug. 1. The unadjusted rate compares to 6.2 per cent in June and 3.1 per cent during July of last year.
