2.0 THE tAWTON CONSTITUTION-MORNING PRESS, Sunday, Aug. 25 1963 Solon Critical Of Rejection Of Refuge Plan State Rep. Don Beauchamp. Lawton, expressed criticism of the state wildlife commission Saturday lor its "hasty action" in turning down a proposal 'for the Wichita Mountains Wildlife .Refuge without making a full study of the facts. The proposal has been submitted by U. S. Sen. Mike Monroney (D-Okla.) to determine the feasibility ot having the refuse designated a "national recreation area." Beauchamp said members of the state wildlife commission apparently Celt the Monroney proposal was to designate the refuge as the site for a "prairie national park" ns proposed by the Interior department to be located in Kansas. : The state representative also criticiEed a metropolitan newspaper outside the Lawton area for a re! cent incident in which the. newspaper questioned ranchers in the retuge area.about plans Jor the reJ- uge; and injected the idea that farm and ranch land might be taken for · an expansion of · the refuse. ,. x · · · "There lias been noioEficial men| tion or implication that'"the 1 acquisition of land was contemplated," Beauchamp said, "and if the injection of this question by · the metropolitan newspaper influenced the wildlife commission's actions, the point 'should have been clari- i fied before a decision was made." Beauchamp commended civic leaders in this area for their assistance ot refuge officials in a program to bring badly needed improvements to the ·' refuge .. to make. it more attractive to tourists. V · . ' . . - · . · ' ' · "Since this Is our main tourist attraction," he said, "any attempts at . improvement should not be slapped ' down .by. a state agency without a MThearing of the facts:" · In a recent news story,: Sen. Monroney clarified the purpose of his proposal was to assure the refuge · more · funds for sanitary facilities, picnic and camp sites, better roads and other public'ac- commodations. He said-he'was seeking advice to determine if 1 the-refuge could be designated a recreational area and still preserve its basic purpose as the haven for wild game, Police Probing White Slave Act Violation Report City arid federal 'officers Saturday WGre conducting an investigation in a case In .which.a Missouri man reportedly transported a prostitute to Lawlon earlier this month.
