William I. Spencer, president of the First National City Bank of New York City, called for a more rational and less costly way of leasing mineral rights over public lands and public waters. Spencer also said the import program should be built along economic, rather than political, SAFEWAY lines, eliminating the need for liance on foreign sources of ering of the old optimism on day-to-day adjustments and energy, the exhaustion of old prices." providing a firm foundation for oil and gas fields, Ihe high "Strange as it may seem," the development of domestic cosls of producing synthetic Spencer said in a speech to the energy resources. materials, as well as Ihe "with- American Petroleum Institute "A truce must be negotiated between the environmentalists and the expansionists as soon as possible," he added, resulting in a "reasonable and responsible compromise on such issues as pipeline building and offshore drilling."

Capital close-up By GORDON G. GAUSS Associated Press Writer The stale commission which would be created under Ihe bipartisan land use bill introduced into the Colorado Legislature would become one of the most powerful agencies of slate government. Us five members would be appoinled by the governor. In its present form, Ihe bill provides thai none of Ihem shall be an elected official or an employe of a local govern- ment-^cbunty, municipal or special districl. Commissioners could be paid as much as $150 a day when Ihey work, with a limit of $35,000 a year. Such a sum would represent virtually full-lime work. A requirement thai commissioners be appoinled from dif- · ferenl planning regions is intended to assure represenlalion of all purls of Ihe slale. The scope of Ihe commission's powers are oul lined in a four-page analysis of Ihe bill developed by Ihe Colorado Open Space Council, Inc. The council is made up of a score of organizations and is supporting Ihe bill. Here, in essence, arc some of Ihe commission's powers as outlined in the Open Space Council brochure.' II would have aulhorily In review most subdivision plans and zoning changes proposed in Ihe Front Range area, wilh power (o deny Ihom. II would issue conslruclion permits--at Icasl i n i l i a l l y - i n other parts of I ho slale where hazards exist. These would include flood plains, avalanche areas, slide areas, fire chute areas, high wind areas and lands wilh unstable soils. When local governments develop acceptable slandards, Ihey could lake over issuance or denial of permils in Ihese hazard areas. The commission also could regulate activities of slalewide concern. These include exlen- sion of waler systems, diversions of waler from one basin to another, development of oil shole, major projects for clear culling of timber, slrip mining, nuclear detonations, and locations of highways, airporls, ski developments, power plants^ and transmission lines. The commission also would have power "to -approve or disapprove plans for any housing devcloprnenl of 100 or more units, for location of industries employing upward of 100 persons, for industrial parks larger than nine acres and any development using 200,000 gallons of water or more daily. The commission would pass upon annexations and incorporations of municipalities. The slate commission also could go into district court to force local or regional govern- menls to enforce its rulings. The present Land Use Corn- mission would continue separately from the slale commission as a planning agency and advisor to the governor and legislature. The 12 regions oslablished by executive order lasl November would be given more formal legal stalus and would be directed to come up wilh detailed land use plans by Sept. 1, 1974. Predicting heavy lobbying against Ihe measure, Ihe Open Space Council said it still believes the bill has "a reasonable chance of passing." Mansfield opposes merger of Forest Service offices AP Regional Service WASHINGTON /AP) -- Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield said Tuesday he has protestor! to President Nixon Ihe possibility of merging regional Forest Service offices in the West as an economy move. The Montanan said he discussed with Nixon at breakfast Monday reports t h a t Ihe Forest Service was considering Ihe consolidalion in Denver of regional offices al Missoula, Mont., Ogden, Utah, and Albuquerque, N.M. "I pointed out that Denver is a long way from the forest areas of Ihe Northwest," Mansfield said. "II would lie a mistake, 1 told him, to move Ihe Missoula region to Denver because it would be counterproductive, il would increase costs, il would reduce efficiency, il would create job problems and Ihe Forest Service would lose some dedicated people," Mansfield said. "The President asked for pnrliculurs and said he would look into the. matter," he added. Mansfield predicted Ihe possible merger would be opposed by members of Congress from the three stales which would lose regional offices. Forest Service Chief John R Mc(!uire confirmed in letters In Mansfield and Sen. Lee Melcalf, D-Monl., lhat Ihe move from Missoula was being considered. McGuirc wrote: "Although wo arc reviewing the possibility (of moving Ihe Missoula regional headquarters), we have made no firm decision. "...federal budgets and manpower constraints have been lightened. Rising costs of doing business have added to Ihe need to accelerate studies to find ways to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of na- lional forest management while reducing crisis. "Therefore, in order In main- lain our present level of man- ngcmcnl on milinnnl foresls, il is cssonllnl Ihnl wo lake n posi- National Brands at live approach to insure lhat Ihe maximum amount of available dollars and people are released to on-the-ground resource management. "So far our evaluations are preliminary, 'bill they do indicate lhal substantial savings can be made by reducing the number of Forest Service Headquarters offices, including our regional office in Missoula," he said. "If this were lo occur, Ihe Forest Service would continue lo mainlain a work force in Missoula of about 370 people to support Forest Service programs." Daring helicopter maneuver saves man's life Y O S E M I T E N A T I O N A L i PARK, Calif. ( A P ) - A daring | helicopter maneuver is credited \ with saving a young Glendale, Calif., man stranded on a sheer face of 101 Capilan. A park spokesman said Chris Reverly, 21, apparently lost his way Saturday afternoon on Ihe descent a f t e r successfully climbing Ihe 3,000-fool monolith and collapsed from hunger and exhaustion. He was spotted from a helicopter Monday, and copter pilot James Anderson began the treacherous rescue attempt. ; Anderson, a pilot from Ft. i Orel, hovered within six feel of Kl Capilan and awaited Iwo j rangers who had leaped lo Re- i vcrly's side from Ihe helicop- ; ler. The rangers lifled Hcvcrly lo the hovering crafl .and jumped aboard themselves, Ihe spokesman said. Kcvorly's companion, Larry Bruce of Boulder, Colo., said they had become separalcd nfler beginning Ihe descent Saturday afternoon. Bruce made it down safely and later became worried when Reverly failed lo appear. Reverly wns listed In good condition in ri Yosomilo Valley ,'iospilnl. Crunch 'N Munch Franklin, Cereal.
