in the land Spreading over 10000 acres twice the area of the giant Idlewild New York In ternational Airport it will be dedicated Saturday by Presl dent Kennedy Dulles also is probably the most controversial airport any where Virtually everything about it has been criticized its design its plan of operation its location the delay in its con struction its cost indeed its very reason for being It had long been obvious that the nations capital needed an airport capable of handling big jet planes National Airport across the Potomac and south of the District probably could be used safely and not too noisily by small jets but as yet is not But Friendship Air port about 32 miles northeast of the District already handles big jets Instead of improving Friend ship Congress ordered construc

construction costs were relatively low and subsequently improved carries a price tag of only million As first planned in 1956 Dulles was to cost million When construc tion started in 1958cost esti mates had risen to million Now the figure is million Expansion by 1980 will bring the total to million Moreover commercial airlines already settled at Friendship were re luctant to put money into redundant facilities at Dulles Some Baltimoreans perhaps in ordinantly proud of nearby Friendship call Dulles Inter national an expensive joke Nevertheless and despite delays and planning defects that

terminal building and the service area The terminal and control tower designed by the late Eero Saarinen are ex tremely modern and hence also controversial But according to the architectural critic Wolf Von Eckardt Saarinens build ing should strike anyone with its beauty and dignity Perhaps the most controver sial feature is thc use of mobile lounges comfortable waiting rooms on wheels to take pas sengers from the terminal to and from planes These are frightfully expensive Develop ment of the first cost mil lion Twenty have been ordered at an average price of 000 each But if they work the
