BOARD APPROVES AIRPORT PERMIT 1 Arlington Zoning Body Favors New Administration and Terminal Buildings. BY JOHN T. LIPSCOMB, Btalf Correspondent of The Star. CLARENDON, Va., December 24. Application of the owners of Washing ton Airport, Incorporated, an air ter minal concern, for a permit to erect a new administration and terminal build ing and two hangars on its property, which faces both the Alexandria-Rich rnond and Military roads at the south end of the Highway Bridge, was ap proved by the Arlington County Zoning Commission, meeting at the court house last night. Plans and specifications for improve ment of the property, which were submitted and explained by Thomas Phillips, attorney for the corporation; Albert G. Obcr, vice president and treasurer, and Paul J. Rabbitt, man ager, provide also for a new road to circle around in rear of the gasoline filling station on the comer and con necting the Richmond-Alexandria and the Military road, giving easier and safer access to traffic using these two highways. Will Face New Road. The administration and passenger building, according to the plans, wUI face the new road. It will have a set back of ample space to allow for land scaping, planned to be in conformity with treatment of land surrounding the Arlington Memorial Bridge approaches and the Mount Vernon Boulevard de velopment. It is to be of brick and concrete construction, two stories high and of the most modem design. The first floor plans call for a ticket office, waiting room, rest rooms and other conveniences. An open deck command ing a view of the flying field and the Potomac River is planned for the sec ond floor. Rising above this in the center of the structure will be a control tower and observatory. A semi-circle of concrete will be laid in rear of the building for use as a loading platform. The two hangars with shops in be tween will be erected on the south of the property and in view of the Rich mond-Alexandria road. Work has actually started on these buildings. The company having been assured in ad vance that there could be no objections to their establishment as they con formed in every way with the county’s zoning regulations. Formerly an Eyesore. The entire field owned by the com pany embraces aproximately 100 acres of what formerly was one of the greatest "eyesore” approaches to the National Capital. Most of the property until recently was swamp land, that not occupied by the old Arlington Race Track. Since coming into possession of the property the company has filled much of the swamp land, removed the decayed remnants of the old race track and graded the entire stretch, making a noticable improvement to that section of the Virginia side of the Potomac Announcement was made that the company does not at the present time contemplate doing anything with the Arlington Beach land w'hich it recently acquired, except to clear and beautify it to fit in with the Federal Govern ments park and boulevard develop ments which are now under way. Un der the tentative zoning ordinance this property has been zoned residential. Os particular interest to hundreds of Arlington County citizens who have been actively engaged in trying to elimi nate signboards from the county is the announcement of the owners that the large gasoline sign on the old beach property at the bridge end will be re moved within the next 60 days. The old aerial railway at the west end of the beach property is also to go within that time, it is said. The vote to approve the application was unanimous, all members of the Zoning Commission agreeing that it was a very acceptable improvement, one that will be a credit to this side of the Potomac. - - - -1 ll 1 ■' 1 Sears.

ONLY OnTbuTmADE FOR CITY UTILITIES New York Concern's Offer of $3,750,000 for Danville Plants to Be Kejected. Special Dispatch to The Stag. DANVILLE, Va., December 24.—The People’s Light Sc Power Co. of New York yesterday made a bid for the pur chase of the city electric plant and the gas works at $3,750,000. It was the only firm which tendered a proposal to the city council, which has deferred ac tion on it until Monday. The popular impression here is that the single bid will be rejected, as the council had made it clear when it called for bids that it would be governed largely by the ability of the bidder to assure Danville of new industrial en terprises. This the New York concern was unable to do, though It expressed readiness to work for new industries. The bid is of section-wide import ance, because E. C. Deal, president of the corporation, outlined, when filing the bid, a plan of bringing electricity to this entire rural section by the devel opment of a generating station in Pat rick County, 70 miles west of here. The failure of other concerns to bid was attributed to two causes. One of them was the stock market collapse and the other the fact that the franchise on which the bids were based was not satisfactory to some who proposed to tender proposals.

According to District Engineer E. O. Duncan, the State Roads Commission I believes the commissioners can make i their recommendations now just as well as two months hence, as has been the custom in previous years. Would Enable Early Start. The earlier recommendations, it is pointed out, will make it possible for the commissioners to handle prelimi nary work and award contracts in time to start the actual road building when the Spring construction season opens, j In many cases the preliminaries are said to involve survey and rights-of way negotiations. It is expected contracts awarded in 1 the early part of the year will be fln SUBURBAN NEWS. ished when the official construction sea son ends on November 15. During 1929, Engineer Duncan states, several contracts tor road building in Prince Georges and Montgomery Coun ties were awarded as late as July and August, with the result that there are now a number of roads Just partly com pleted. The new system is expected to prove more satisfactory to both the pub lic and the road commission. In addition to an effort to operate more efficiently, it Is said the large amount of road building now under the direction of the State commission makes necessary an earlier start. The number of miles of new roads built last Summer set a new record for the State. Prince Georres Parley. The Prince Georges County commis sioners have already conferred with the State Roads Commission is regard to the highways to be built in 1930, but as yet have not submitted a complete list of recommended projects. County Clerk Brice Bowie declares that inasmuch as the major portion of 7 the county’s $525,000 road bond issue Is already allotted to roads under contract; it is probable that the commissioners will not be able to recommend the build ing of many new roads next year.
