Called A True Wilderness Area Devil's Den Almost Ready For Development By BILL SIMMONS Associated Press Writer LITTLE BOCK (AP) - After almost a year or piecemeal bartering, state and federal officials may be about to wrap up · swap that would let the state make extensive developments at Devil's Den State Park and provide federal protection for the Azalea Preserve. Bryan Stearns, state parks Peterson Heads Study of Role Of Foundations NEW YORK (AP) - Peter C. Peterson, chairman of the Bell and Howell Corp., has been named to bead a commission of private citizens that will make a major study of the role of foundations in American life. Pe'ierson was picked by a group of "concerned citizens", including John D. Rockefeller 3d, to make the study in the wake of congressional investigations and proposals to limit the scope and tax status of the foundations which control billions of dollars. Rockefeller's office said Peterson would select other me'n- bers of the commission and announce its membership shortly. Rockefeller urged the setting up of such a commission during a meeting of the Council on Foundations last week in New Orleans. At that time many foundation officials expressed opposition to any federal inroads on program freedom for the foundations, hut they generally agreed that "fair" financial reforms would be acceptable. Peterson reportedly has named to the commission the president of the University of Chicago. Chicago. Edward H. Levi: Sheldon S. Cohen, Washington attornoy a n d former commissioner of internal revenue, and Paul A. Frcund, Harvard law professor. The staff director reportedly will be Everett I..

But there's not much we an do to keep winter from bong winter." MOST POPULAR Devil's Den Slate Park, he aid, is one of the most popular nd most-used areas in the state ark system. The area is in south Washing- nn County south and west of "Mnslow, with paved connections T U.S. 71 from Winslow and 'cst Fork. "It's one of the truly wilder- ess areas loft in the state." lie lid. The area has been called a lass of caves, but Stearns said icy arc not caves in the real ensc. because they have no talactiles or stalagmites. "It is. though, a very interest- IB area." he said. Under the state-federal deal. IP state would receive about 70 acres of land held by the ederal government while fiiv- g up 220 acres the state holds. The state's contribution to ie trade includes 55 acres that beautiful area and one that should be preserved for all time," Stearns said. BOUGHT IN 1M5 The state's decision '.o trade the land, he said, was based in part on the fact that it lacks facilities and funds to properly maintain and protect the area, where the azaleas--actually rhododendrons -- bloom each year late in April or early in May. The slate bought the area of the preserve in 1%5 for $10.000 from Bryan Van Cleave of Rus scllville. 'We have been accused by Best Hunting Doys Central Park Is Haven For Bird Watchers NEW By JOE WING YOHK (AP) Not many New Yorkers realize it. but one of grounds on the the best hunting Eastern sea some mistaken people of not caring about the area," Stearns hundred said. "But actually we bought the liind in the first place to keep it from falling into private hands and being lost forever to the general public." While the state bought the land, he said, it still could not properly care for it, and decided that the trade was the best arrangement, not only for Devil's Don but also for the preserve. The preserve is about 19 miles north of Hector in Pope County near the junction of Arkansas Ifi and 27 in the Ozark National! Forest. I Federal officials may attempt j to develop the area as a touris'i attraction. The district ranger. Refus Lannius. said he already has requested a site plan, "but what we do depends on our bud gel." DEVELOPMENT "It could be developed as a National Forest Scenic Attraction, or as a recreation area with developments on it." he said. He said the developments could include roads, parking lots, trails, rest benches and picnic tables. Picking the flowers would, of Ixmrd lies right in the heart of Manhattan. Central Park, hedged in by skyscrapers and stores, mansions and slums, hotels and roaring traffic, has an irresista- ble attraction each spring for migrating birds. And there they are hunted clown inexorably by as eager a lot of bird men as you ever saw. 230 SPECIES Alxiut 250 species have been counted in the park at one time or another, and as many as a been observed there in a single day. The best hunting is on a cloudy May morning whim the warblers are in full flight and when good flying conditions existed the night before south of the city. Then it is that flocks winging in over the soa or over industrialized New Jersey find the park a sylvan haven. Twenty or thirty thousand birds may swarm in on such an occasion. That's in spite of the ardent bird Applications Accepted For Summer Program Applications hx positions with the Fayettevillc Summer Head Start program are being accepted at the office of t h e Washington County Economic Opportunity Agency, (EOA). watchers, the usual strollers, and certain odd ball types of humanity. Hundreds of bird people, binoculars al the ready and bird guides in pocket, trod the paths and crash through underbrush in the Ramble, a woodsy area near the American Museum of Natural History. By their very presence they drive out sleozy individuals who also find that grove attractive. Later in the summer, when the bird watchers have retired because nothing much is left but starlings, pigeons and English sparrows, the odd balls return. BIRD WATCHERS Many of the bird watchers just drop around during lunch hour or before work or on a day off. But some are led by proles- sionals like Farida Wiley of the American museum. Neophytes in tow. she has been prowling the park for 20 years or more. A frail looking teacher typo, she can walk the legs off many a strong man. A true blue bird watcher like Miss Wiley feels no need to explain this spring madness, hut she docs express her misgivings. Too many people and too much pesticide, she feels, arc threatening the park's bird life. The birds themselves seem harried by all this attention and noise. But for the most part they hang around until dusk before starting on another leg of their journey. Then the bird watchers leave also and the Ramble falls silent under its baleful electric lights, largely deserted except for a policeman on duty or an unidentifiable pedestrian. Few New Yorkers frequent the more remote areas of the park at night. · I Now Possible To Shrink Painful Hemorrhoids And Promptly StopThe Itching, Relieve Pain In Mok Cue*. N«w Yorfc N.Y.
