By JOHN NOBLE W1LFOHD New York Times Service NEW YORK Not everyone who scales a lofty summit now- adays is looking for an esthetic experience or an escape from everyday cares. Some are there to collect garbage. It is the sad but seemingly in- evitable consequence of the in- creased popularity, of mountain climbing. Where tha climbers go, by the thousands now. park rangers and conservationists must follow to clean up the piles of paper and tin cans, bot- tles, discarded .equipment and other waste left by man. "Mount Trashmore" they call some of these once pristine peaks. At Ihe Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, rangers say they regularly return from the peaks with "rucksacks lull of junk." The Appalachian Moun- tain Club, which maintains campsites in the White Moun- tain National Forest in New Hampshire, is using helicop- ters lo fly out human wastes in 55-gallon drums. Last year a University of Ore- gon expedition climbed the up- per slope of Mount McKinley in Alaska not because it was there but because so many oth- ers had been there and had led "disgusting" monuments of litter. The clean-up crew burn- ed and threw into crevasses about 300 pounds of junk and came down with 100 pounds more, all they could carry. The problem of htiman wastes at the summit of Mount Rainier Quebec Tory leader may be ex-liberal in Washington Stale Is becom- ing so acute that National Park Service officials say it may soon be necessary to crown the foot snow capped peak with a privy. The hardiest climbers may take a dim view .of such, an "improvement" at that eleva- tion. 'But John A. Townsley, former superintendent of the Mount Hanier National Park, said that some kind of portable chemical toilels would be less offensive lhan the odors climb- ers now encounter. "We want to maintain the quality of the high mountain Townsley said "even though other people are there." This is be coming increasingly difficult. Mountaineering is no longer the lonely pursuit of the few. Estimates of the number of climbers in the United States range from to a million The number of people climb- ing the Grand Tetons has dou bled since 1E65, reaching last year.

Mr Sirois toli a news confer- ence the Quebec City meeting to choose the leader will in- clude candidates and delegates from Quebec's 74 federal rid- ings. "I don't know if it would premature to say that this leader will be Mr. Mr. Sirois said. "But it seems from what's being said by the candidates up to now that the MPs and candi- dates chosen so far are going to show their support, probably, for Mr. Wagner as leader of the Quebec campaign in '72." Mr. Wagner, a former judge and justice minister in the for- mer Quebec Liberal govern- ment of Jean Lcsagc, an- nounced Sept. 5 he would be a Conservative candidate in the current federal election cam- paign. The FP Publications in- Leth- bridge, Ottawa, Victoria raised Ins transportation and insur- nce charges, amounting to 155.01. Thus we have a surplus f on hand, anxiously from day. to day for the jreen light to sliip our last ixth carload. To our utter dismay the mail as just brought a message rom our completely trust- worthy partner agency the lamakrishna Mission that heir headquarters in Calcutta lave decided to close relief op- erations on December 31, 1972 Naturally, in a completely disorganized country, relief op- erations are about the most de- manding and difficult assign- ment I know and the RKRt un- fortunately does not have suffi- cient, and volunteers tr. continue their immense task They were being used as dis. iributing organization by many Because of their complete inte grity and competence.

But in tbe same letter th Swami stresses his plea fo more housing to provide shelte Calgary and all together for the TJSC, all ear- for the homeless refugees an the USC is being implored t send maximum amounts funds for immediate of living quarters. On r roof big costs about In previous letter the Swami .stimated that one million more ousuig units are needed at nee. At this moment, about ne thousand have been erected USC funds. In its new fiscal year budget larllng July 1, 1972, the USC ledged for housing and for basic cooking utensils or families. My query lo ou is whether Ihe funds we are now holding from you could pos- sibly be diverted into housing nd the purchase of cooking utensils, provided you can ex- plain this new development to 'our generous readers. I am o afraid of embarrassing you and your kind daily, but no doubt you will complelely understand that I am just as aken aback by the new situa ion as you will be, when you read my message. I so hope that in your under standing way you will decide o accept my plea for co-oper alion, and lhat you will no withdraw your promise of a 1972 Christmas appeal. May' briefly explain what I have il mind under these newly arise] circumstances? You will have read of Ih unprecedented floods in Kore last August 18 to 21. We re ceived a passionate appeal fo immediate assistance from, ou very reliable Korean Director Mr. Cho Ki Dong, pleading lo a emergency grant an two carloads of barley, at th cost of about transpo: charges included. At an emergency board mee ing two days ago it was d cided that all we could do wa to underwrite the costs of re- airing the extensive flood dam- ;e done to our own USC Head- uartcrs in Korea, amounting about We are facing a deficit bud- et at the moment and our money situation is extremely ght. A barley for Korea cam- aign during the 1972 Leth- ridge Herald Christmas ap- leal would be a benediction for many thousands of Korean flood victims. The following reply to the above letter was wired Tues- day. "Compassion of Leth- bridge Herald readers extends to all human suffering. They trust USC to put their money where it is most needed. You have their consent, gratitude and blessing." Alberta oil sands key to markets EDMONTON (CP) The opening session of the annual conference of Canadian re- source ministers was told here hat failure to develop Alber- ta's oil sands could cost Canada substantial oil export opportun- ities. Frank Spragins, president of Syncrude Canada Ltd., called for government taxation and environmental policies to en- courage development of the vast oil sands in northeastern Alberta. Sync rude proposed to start a extraction plant next year which would create permanent jobs. The com- pany has already spent mil- lion on reserve and develop- ment projects in Edmonton and Fort McMurray. Mr. Spragins said the Unitec States has reached the peak of its oil production while the de- mand for oil continues to grow He suid now is the time to cash 'As an indication of what is lappening, both Texas and xjuisiana, the two big names n U.S. oil production, several months ago increased allowable production to 100 per the cent. U.S. Shortly thereafter, government announced increas- jd import quotas, including one from Canada." "If we fail to bring the tar sands into large-scale produc- tion in the 1970s and 1980s there is a real chance that Canada might have lo relinguish signif- icant oil export opportunities." He said development of the sands is not a sure thing and the government must set up realistic regulations which will promote resource development consistent with the needs of in- dustry and the public. This would include tax laws related to industry's ability to pay and consideration of tha lu'gh risks Involved ,in addition to realistic pollution and re- .__ MftTIQIHH DEPARTMENT STORES CHARGEX cent every year for the las three years. Park rangers report tha while low land campers are be- coming more careful about no littering, the high-altitude prol lem is worsening. They attribute this partly t the "expedition psychology that prevails among mountain eers on the higher peaks.

McKinley, the highest peak North America. Three summers ago, a grou of climbers from Tacoma, Wash., had scarcely begun an ascent of the moun- tain when they came upon the campsite of an expedition lhat had left a few weeks earlier. A large tent was still stand- ing, surrounded by folding aluminum chairs, two gasoline lamps, dozens ol tins of food and what James Henriot, one of the Tacoma climbers, de- jcribcd as a "library of pornog- raphy." At such altitudes, where the air is Ihin and freezing, even normally biodegradable mater- ial will not decay. And heli- copters ave unable lo go to such heights for cleanup work. One action the National Park Service has taken is to re- strict the dropping of supplies from the air, which has con- tributed to the litter.
