We feel it is a tremendously dynamic project. We think it has to stay in business. It is a third dimension of urban transportation. It is going to be tremendously vital to the Los Angles region.

We want to participate. I think the scheduled airlines have to participate and help out. I also think that it would be a nice thing to follow the Civil Aeronautics Board's recommendation declining subsides for a period of years so that some definitive planning can be done by the carriers.

Thank you, Senator.

Senator MONRONEY. Thank you very much. 

Do you have anything further, Mr. Erickson?

Mr. ERICKSON. No, sir.

Senator MONRONEY. Senator Hart?

Senator HART. I have no questions. Thank you.

Senator MONRONEY. We apologize for the lateness of the lateness of the hour. These days get somewhat hectic and you cant always plan as well as you can plan an airline schedule. Even those days kind of get fouled up sometimes.

Mr. ERICKSON. I want to thank the chairman for taking us on this evening.

Senator MONRONEY. The committee will stand in adjournment until 10 o'clock tomorrow morning.

(Whereupon, at 6:00 p.m., the subcommittee was recessed, to reconvene at 10 a.m. the following day.)
