Vice-Chancellor Joe Eagles said
Tuesday the primary reason for the
paving of the runway is because of the
"great growth in the use of planes by the
University medical service.
"I think it is an essential service for
the University," Eagles commented,
adding that the airport had been unsafe
for plane traffic.
A committee of the University's
Faculty Council recommended last July
paving the 3,500-foot runway while
gradually eliminating public use of the

One group which has been opposed to
the paving of the airport is the Citizens
for Airport Planning.
Ray Green, former chairman of the
citizens group, says the group hopes that
a new site can be found for the airport.
"We feel that the airport is
inappropriately located," Green
explained. "When first established about
30 years ago, the airport was in a rural
area. Now the area has become
extensively developed and there are
schools and homes near the airport.
"If paved, it will probably remain an
airport indefinitely," Green said Monday.

"will begin a militant long-term campaign

Wheeler continued, "It has been clear

on this campus. But most of us have been
unwilling to examine the role of local
institutions in the war effort.

concerning noise and low-flying planes.
"Every complaint has been
