Hughes says By JAMES R OWENS HIP voar if By JAMES R OWENS Gov Harold Hughes camping in Mason City on the fourstate Hiawatha Pioneer Trail that he initiated said that recreational facilities on the trail and across Iowa need vast expansion We have no program for con servation of our natural re sources no plan for the fu ture the Governor said Meet ing the needs he said will call for great capital spending But he said millions of dollars worth of natural areas already have been lost through ignoring the problem Gov Hughes was interviewed at the AllIowa Campout at Margaret M MacNider Park at which he was a special guest Pointing to of the young sters among the thousands camping at the weekend event he asked Where are these children going to go to camp when they grow up The states population the Governor said will double by that time where would ihe year 2000 In spite of usstate Iowa is the only state not because of us with the nations two greatest What he asked will it takeovers on its borders the Gov to hold an AllIowa Campout at said rivers with vast po tential for recreation as well as transportation and industry The Governor placed respon sibility for the Hiawatha Pio neer Trails success now direct ly upon the cities and counties along it He personally began the lion that resulted in the four slate trails creation he said The trail has now had promo tion and is getting its sign mark ers If local communities do not mark their attractions and pro vide facilities for travelers at reasonable prices he said people will go home as some have from the New York World Fair saying the prices are too high and the people are rude And they wont take the trail again In his remarks at a press conference the Governor sev eral times praised the work of you put that many people to day Conservation p r o g r aming that began in the 1930s was al lowed to die out the Governor said There have been some re cent gains he said through such things as establishment of coun ty conservation commissions and authorizing taxes to support their work founded commission to study all the stales existing recreation areas and those that should be ac quired for recreation he said but he emphasized that he fore sees a major job in providing adequate areas One reason he has been eager to settle the boundary between Iowa and Nebraska he said is to make possible development of the many acres of riverside land that still is in a naturaljlhc Mason City community in the rapid creation of the camp site a beautiful spot I hope all major commu nities would follow through with this kind of thing the Gov ernor said Camping is one of the things that should be possible on the Hiawatha Pioneer Trail he in dicated It has been found that more than half the population takes no more than two days off at any time in a year he said People like this and those in the middle income category need somewhere to go for rec reation that does not require great time or expense he stat ed People will go he said But somebody scms to have to tell them where That is what this trail docs The Democratic Governor answered some questions on politics Barry Goldwater he said would be easy for the Demo cratic party to defeat for the presidency But he said both parties should put up their best men for the office of President and in my opinion Barry Gold water is not the best the Repub lican Parly has The scope of the preme Court decision calling for apportionment of both houses of state legislatures on a popula tion basis surprised him he said But he was pleased at the re suit and expects urban areas to assume the responsibility that goes with fair voting power ho said V The Governor repeated that he thinks the resignation of Benjamin Bacr as state director
