Will it be Ford because its the no. 2 makers turn or maybe Industry giant general motors because of its Strong financial position and what about Chrysler always a possible candidate because its so vulnerable to a strike. The Law which has not tipped its hand thus far will provide the answer on tuesday when its International executive Board convenes to debate the Issue.

Page two column eight Raleigh county Airport a lesson for Mercer by Jim Terry officials involved in efforts to obtain Jet capabilities at the Mercer county Airport Are probably not overjoyed at the fact that neighbouring Raleigh county will begin receiving full Jet service by sometime next summer. The Raleigh county Airport at Beckley in fact is undergoing a major project that includes a new 7,500-feet runway for the Airport a new terminal Complex and additional improvements planned for the future. Presently the Raleigh county Airport authority is in the midst of an $8 4 million improvements project that when completed will bring Piedmont airline 737 Jet flights to the county on a permanent basis. In Mercer county the Airport authority is faced with the problem of either having to come up with a $15 million project to upgrade the Airport to Jet capabilities or starting a new Jetport project which would presumably Cost a great Deal More than that. Fil urfi id news analysts in response to a recent question concerning a Bluefield business establishment by the name of Kleiman a a Bluefield Reader writes that in the earlier Days of the City there was an office Supply firm on Princeton Avenue and later on Federal Street that was owned by Ira and Tulip Kleiman. One of the Brothers later married mrs. Rose Katz Mother of judge Jerome Katz and Bluefield attorney Leroy Katz. Mrs. Betty Mason of Bluefield has provided information concerning two questions which recently appeared in the Telephone the Telegraph column. She says there is a More sales company that Sells punch cards. The address of the firm is 30 1 West Adams St., Chicago Iii 60606. Mrs. Mason also notes that albums and tapes by Jimmy Swaggart can be obtained at the g. Murphy . In the Blue Prince Plaza. Sept. 28 target Date for debate if the league of women voters has its Way the first nationally televised debate Between president Ford and Democrat Jimmy Carter will be tuesday sept. 28, in St. Inns. Somehow so far these determined careful men and women have had their Way. They be been pressing for nationally televised debates Between the two major candidates Long before those candidates were chosen. The leagues Board of directors made the debates a target at the annual convention in May and league delegates met the proposal by their president Ruth Clusen of Green Bay wis., with a standing ovation. The league is currently circulating a petition with a target of four million signatures it says a we the people urge the major party candidates for president to meet in Public debate on the issues facing the Page two column five the authority has been told that Piedmont intends to phase out its ys-11 Prophet within the next five to seven years and will go to full Jet service by then. The ys-11 aircraft is presently in use at the Mercer facility which cannot presently accept jets due to its relatively Short runway. W Ork which would have to be done at the Mercer county Airport to bring it into the Jet age includes extending the 4,800-feet runway to a minimum of 7,000 feet widening the runway from too feet to 150 feet strengthening the weight capacity of the runway from its present 45,000 or 50,000 pounds to 100,000 pounds and improvements to the terminal building. Taken at face value the difference in Airport facilities Between Raleigh and Mercer counties might be Paul Neal manager of the Beckley facility. Neal became manager of the Raleigh Airport about five and one half years ago and immediately set out to convince the Airport authority and Raleigh county commission that full Jet service would be vital to the county a economic growth. A i got the Airport authority interested and then we started on the county commission a Neal told the Telegraph. A everybody was interested and we All went to after the appropriate county agencies decided which route would be Best for the Airport it became Clear that some sort of master plan would be needed before Federal and state agencies could be persuaded to allocate Grants for the improvements. Quot we got a master plan going a Neal said a which had plans for improvements on up to 1990. The runway work and the new terminal Complex we re doing now is part of that Neal said the plan required approval of the Federal aviation administration before funding of the work could in obtained. Of the total $8 4 million Cost of the present work the runway project is costing about $6 9 million. The new terminal is costing $15 million. On the runway project the major portion of funding was provided through Faa and appalachian regional commission Grants. The state aeronautics commission chipped in another five per cent and the county commission put in the remaining to per cent. On the terminal Complex project the county commission floated a $1.2 Bond Issue and the economic development administration came up with the remaining costs. Neal estimates that the major portion of the runway project should be completed by mid january depending on weather conditions. Quot we wont be Able to get Asphalt after nov. 15,&Quot Neal said a because that a when the Asphalt plants close Down. But depending on the weather we re going ahead with putting Down Stone and doing everything else we can. We done to expect to miss the completion Date by the new terminal Complex should be completed and opened by the first of november he said. Future plans for the facility include providing additional parking space to meet increased traffic generated by full Jet service a new firehouse and widening the taxiway at the facility. Neal said that work will probably Cost in the neighbourhood of $3 million adding that the authority plans to apply for Federal arid state Grants for the improvements by sept. 30. A the main thing when we went into the whole project was the master plan a Neal said. A i knew we had to have it and fortunately we got it done and got it approved. You can to get anywhere without a the master plan also was approved by the state aeronautics commission Neal said the Raleigh facility meanwhile presently accepts charter Jet aircraft but Piedmont s full service wont be underway until the runway and terminal improvements Are completed commuter service through the Aero Mech firm at Clarksburg offering daily flights to Pittsburgh pa., and Morgantown also is available at the Beckley facility. The same firm meanwhile plans to begin similar commuter flights at the Mercer Airport by oct. I. If the five and one half year period from getting a master plan started and work on the improvements Well underway at the Raleigh Airport can be used As a yardstick for similar improvements which May be done at the Merce facility the lot a1 Airport authority will have t work fast to obtain Jet capabilities by the Tim Piedmont phases out its ys-11 aircraft the Mercer Airport authority has scheduled a meeting in Washington on sept. 8 with u.
