ARBOGAST WASHINGTON IAP) — Foreseeing a steady rise in the popularity of national parks, the House Appropriations Committee today voted a sharp increase in funds to improve park facilities. Reporting its version of the annual Interior Department appropriation bill scheduled for a House vote next week, the committee recommended spending 15 million dollars for construction of physical facilities in national parks. Preaident Eisenhower had requested only $5,200,000 for this purpose in his original budget. He added another $8,350,000 to that in a special request Feb 2. Baying the money was needed to start a 10-year program of improvements More Visitors Tho committee, approving more oven than Eisenhower's enlarged request, cited an increase of about two million persons annually in the number of visitors to the parka, with 54 million people expected to visit them next year.    _    ,,. „    „    .    _ _    .    . , , ....    .
