"The Mountain Dedicated to Ike Cleveland Goes Right To The Top By DON GUY MOUNT EISENHOWER, .WHITE MOUNTAINS, N.H. (AP) President Nixon hasn't gotten Mount around to Eisenhower dedicating yet so group of hikers did it them- selves without bothering with champagne last weekend. Rep. James Cleveland, R- N.H., poured precious water from a canteen upon a rough stone cairn atop the summit and said, "I christen thee Mount Eisenhower." Any water is precious atop Mount Eisenhower. The nearest spring is a couple of miles away and hiking in crisp dry falljbrating the 150th anniversary ol weather is thirsty sport. Mount Eisenhower was Mount Pleasant in- the Presidential Range of the White Mountains until the New Hampshire Legis- lature decided to change the the Crawford Path .to the sum- mit of Mount Washington when it was decided to christen Mounl Eisenhower. Tavernkeeper Abel: Crawford hadn't bothered with a side trip name earlier this year to honor up lhe peak-when he pioneered the late president. Unofficial efforts have made to sound out the Adminis- tration on whether- President Niion could ever make a trip to the Granite State to officiate at a summit ceremony. So far as is cnown no word has been re- ceived one way or another. Cleveland was climbing with a group of mountain buffs cele- his trail in 1819. 'The' 8.4 mile Crawford Path is now the oldest continuously used hiking traii in the Uniled'Slates.' five miles of the path are above tree line on this range famed for its rugged weather.

The hikers took liberties with history by riding to the top of Mount Washington in stages of the summit road com- pany.

Cleveland sternly resisted po- litical temptation to make a speech at the brief ceremony above tree" line. Doherty, an authority on the nistory of the Crawford Path, pointed'out that Daniel Webster another son of the Granite State Had no such hesitation. Webster reached the summit of Mount Washington in June, 1831, but a summer snowstorm cut off view of the magnificent scenery. Webster .thereupon cussed the New deep England weather in the full throated voice that made'him famous'as the great- est orator of the day. :Ethan .Allan Crawford who. witnessed "or" ation remarked tartly years lat- er: "Old Dan never spoke from a higher rostrum or to a smaller audience." SST is going to be built." Nixon noted his decision oh the 300 pas- senger airliner came after a "spirited debate within the ad- ministration." Opponents of the project have argued it is impractical, too ex- pensive and too noisy. Bolsters Surplus Nixon asked JS6 million. this year in new funds from Con- gress in addition to J99 million in unused carryover appropria- tions for the SST program. This would rise to million in fiscal 1971, then progressively fall to J189 million in fiscal 1972, {48 million in fiscal 1971 and million in fiscal 1974. To meet a major objection from some opponents, Secretary of Transportation John A. Volpe said the SST would not be al i lowed to fly over population areas until the noise factor comes within acceptable limits Volpe said government invest ment to the SST would total million of the approximately billion needed to build two prototype aircraft by 1972.
