Unveiled Beauty From Wasteland Br ALTON BLAKESLEE I overlying dirt and rock is UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. pushed up in piles known as Ugly, barren waste- lands created by strip-mining can apparently be induced to grow grasses and trees rather easily. It's done by spraying the rocky soil with waste water, or effluent, and sludge from treated municipal sewage. The treated waste fertilizes the soil. And water and sludge used this way are consequently not dumped into lakes or rivers, where their high content of phosphorus and nitrogen has- tens the death of water bodies. Many thousands of acres of landscape nuned by strip-min- ing in seven or eight Eastern United States might be restored to useful vegetation and beauty, says Dr. William Sopper, pro- fessor of forest hydrology at Pennsylvania State University. In strip-mining, earth is scraped off the expose minerals Jying close to the surface. The spoil banks. Last summer Sopper dumped 230 tons of spoil bank material into 10 large wooden planters and planted grasses and tree j seedlings in them all. Eight were sprayed regularly with effluent or sludge, in vary- ing proportions. In all of them, grasses and young trees were flourishing by summer's end. In the two boxes not sprayed, nothing survived no trees, no grasses, not even a Sop- per said in an interview. He thinks the costs of irrigat- ing large areas of spoil banks for a few years with treated se- wage would not be prohibitive. In earlier work, Sopper Yields of alfalfa, corn and oats all increased. The sewage water took the place of both commercial fertilizer and the usual irrigation water. treated sewage ordinary crops showed that sprayed over and forests brought several ben- efits. The land and plants acted as a filter so the sewage be- came drinkable water in the water table. Dief Promises To Fight Recognition Of Peking TAIPEI (Reuters) John, undoubtedly been appreciated Diefenbaker left Formosa today for Hong Kong after promising he will do his utmost to stop the Canadian government from rec- ognizing mainland China. The 75-year-old former Cana- dian prime minister told a news conference Wednesday night the move would be harmful to Can- ada. "More and more I am con- vinced that diplomatic recogni- tion of Peking constitutes incen- tive for those who advance com- he said. Diefenbaker's assurance has BO-WTOR SO'IM'TO by the Nationalist Chinese gov- ernment, although it has not commented with any enthusi- asm for fear of causing embar- rassment to Prime Minister Trudeau. Observers suggested that the sudden cancellation of a sched- uled meeting between Diefenba- ker and President Chiang Kai- shek Wednesday might have been due to the same reason. Diefenbaker arrived here last Saturday to gather -what he called first-hand information for a report to the House of Com- mons. The information he had gath ercd in Formosa about the situ ation in Communist China is useful because it is knowledge that could not be obtained any where else, he said. Diefenbaker was seen off a tho airport by several officials headed by Huang Lu, chairman of the Sino-Canadian Culture' and Economic Association. Nixon Asks Oil Leases Cancellation WASHINGTON (AP) Presi- dent Nixon asked Congress oday to cancel 20 federal oil eases along California's Santa Jarbara channel. In a special message, Nixon said that because of the disas- .rous January, 1969, pollution 'blowout" at one of the oil rigs in the channel, all 20 leases should be terminated and a marine sanctuary created in the "This proposal for Santa Baf- bara illustrates our strong com- mitment to use offshore lands in a balanced aiid responsible he said. Holders of the leases to be cancelled would be compen sated from a special fund draw ing on revenues from oil pro duction at California's Elk Hills Naval Petroleum Reserve.
