#533 (Report of Primary Importance)
Last March work was begun on the reparation of the airplane base south of Darurakku [a] on the way to San Miguel. For a time, however, the work was stopped. Lately it seems that the undertaking has been resumed.
Eye witnesses say that they are using about 300 employees and are hurrying the work along. I understand that at present the gliding ground is being prepared.
