Shorn. Both of the Algona papers are promoting the proposed airport and the publicity Is somewhat one-sided. Wo have heard quite a bit about "keeping in step with the times" and "the needs of the future", but the people who are promoting this project are very hazy about present needs. Does Algona really need an airport now? I have yet to hear a good argument for an airport as a present need. There are no planes owned by Algona people, and it is a pretty safe guess that there would not be many for some time even if we had a good landing field here. While there has been a great deal of technical improvement in aircraft during the past 20 years, there has been little basic change. No fool-proof plane has yet been devised, one that can be operated by the average person. In spite of all the ballyhoo by the air lines It must be admitted that airplane travel is still hazardous and very expensive. •There are about 4,500 people in Algona. All of these people will be taxed to pay for this $50,000 airport, but it Is evident that only a very small number of these people would use it or benefit in any way from it. , Air service is now available to any person who wishes to use it. Certainly any man who can afford to travel by air will have a good automobile, and with a good car one can drive to Des Moines, Rochester, or Minneapolis In only a few hours, and from any of those citlps ho can reach almost any point in the country by plane in 24 hours. For example, one can leave Des Moines at 5:43 p. m. and arrive in New York City at 2:09 ? m.; or one can leave Rochester at 8:55 a. m. and arrive at Seattle, Wash., at 6:40 p. in. the same day. That should be fast enough {Cor anyone. It is difficult for some of us to grasp the idea of the people of Algona providing airport facilities, and then trying to induce the officials of an nir line to slop planes here. If those officials .believe it would be profitable to make stops hero, why should .they not provide their own facilities? What would be the public reaction to a bond issue for the purpose of building a fine new station for the Milwaukee railroad? Or, perhaps, for the purpose of building a $50,000 home for the Northwestern Bell Telephone Co.? I would personally favor either of these proposals more than to provide an expensive landing field for an air line. Both of the corporations named are already doing business in our town, rendering good service, and paying taxes to keep up our schools. If we wish to make a present to a corporation with tax money, then why not give it to a company that is now doing something for us? Either of these companies is furnishing employment to more Algona people than an air line is likely to do for years to come. It may be true that future generations will need an airport at Algona. Well, then, let them build one when it is needed, I believe that we arc doing a lot of unnecessary worrying about "generations yet unborn." It Is hoped that they will be at least as intelligent as we are, and it is possible that they might appreciate it greatly if we would mind our own affairs and allow them the fun of solving their own problems. That is particularly true because of the fact that they will get the bills • for a lot of these grand things we are doing for them. In our own generation we have come to need good roads, and we have built them. We shall also have many of them paid for before they are worn out or obsolete. Why not do the same .with an airport? When we noert it it is certain the land will still be there. Certainly the land may cost more then, but if it does, that will only mean that the city will be better able to pay for it. (Let us hope that Iowa farm land is worth more in the future). One of the most attractive features of Algona is the low rate of taxation. We are certain to be faced with higher taxes •in the future, for there are improvements that are necessary, as, for example, a sewage disposal plant, better parks, and improved streets. These are Improvements that all our people will benefit from and enjoy. Algona, March 7.
