TUKSDAT, JUNE 2, 1958 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS British Climbers Scale To Mt. Everest's Top As 'Coronation Gift' LONDON (AP) — Queen Elizabeth II took time out on her Core nation Day today to Bend congratulations to the British expedition tha planted the Union Jack atop 29,002-foot Mt. Everest. The feat — man's first successful attempt to scale the world's highest peak—was announced last night by Buckingham Palace. The news that two climbers In » party headed by Col. John Hunt had successfully battled their way to the icy summit In the Himalayas on May 29 was relayed to the Vfc Queen first. A palace spokesman '" ' described the dramatic news as a "coronation gift." In her message, cabled to the British minister at Katmandu, the capital of the Himalayan kingdom of Nepal, the Queen said: "Please convey to Col. Hunt and all members of the British expedition my warmest congratulations on their great achievement In reaching the summit of Mt. Everest, (signed) Elizabeth B." The Queen's husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, also sent his congratulations. A message from Hunt relayed to Buckingham Palace said, "All Is well.". The final assault on the Centra! Asian peak on the Nepal-Tibet border—reportedly the third attempt by Hunt's 15-man expedition within the last few weeks—was made by a New Zealand beekeeper, Edward P. Hillary, 34, and a veteran guide of Nepal's Sherpa tribe, 39-year-old Bhutia Tensing. London newspapers hailed the achievement as the beginning of a new Elizabethan era of British daring. They compared the deed with the triumphs of Captain Cook, Sir Francis Drake and Antarctic explorer Robert Scott. That a New Zealander and a tribesman from Britain's longtime ally Nepal won the final victory was looked upon here as another symbol—like the coronation—of Commonwealth unity. Reportedly they carried Nepal's flag to the top. along.with the British colors. The climbers rnrprt atrrtinei ^ e winds and lack of oxygen that pro duces extreme weariness and play mental tricks with climbers at thi extreme Himalayan heights. EIgh of the previous attempts to scali Mt. Everest had been by Britons The victory over Everest was. especially sweet for the Nepalese Tensing, who Himalayan experts say has climbed more peaks in the range than anyone else. Last year with famed Alpinist Raymond Lam bert, he climbed to within 800 feet of Everett's top but they were driven back by wind blasts hurl ing stones and chunks of Ice and by lack of oxygen. The Hunt expedition carried new lightweight oxygen apparatus, va- dios to pick up weather reports from India and newly designed mortars to blast away dangerou overhanging ice. More than 400 Nepalese bearers packed the gear over trails from Namche Bazar, he village nearest the base of the mountain. 8 Camps Spotted Eight advance camps were spotted up the mountain slopes. The last shelter, from which the inal attacks were launched, Was at about 28,000 feet. It was planned that the final sprint to the top and back to the advance camp would be made in one day because it was believed nobody could live through a night in the bitter cold and rarified atmosphere at the summit. Two British climbers, George Mallory and Andrew Irvine, disappeared into the mists near the top of Everest in 1924 and were approaching storms of the summer monsoons. It had been reported previously from Katmandu Nepal that they had failed to reach their goal during the brief spell of good weather and had given up hope. Ten other Everest ezpeditions in the past 32 years had been "beaten back by the numbing cold, fierce never seen again. Hunt's party hoped to find their bodies in the ice and solve the mystery of whether the pair ever reached the peak. In another Himalayan region, an American mountain expedition is seeking today to conquer 28,250-foot IK2, the world's second highest mountain. The latest report from Karachi, Pakistan, said an advance party had arrived at a village near the base of the peak and set up a wiil stretch 170 miles.

The White House says, however, ,hat the ad agency, Batten, Barton, Durstine and Osborne, will provide only technical assistance—that Is, vill lend a hand with lighting, ex- ilbits and such but won't have anything to do with the program's content. BBDO, as the agency Is known in the trade, had a considerable role in Eisenhower's campaign for the presidency last year. It contributed, among other things, a number of ideas aimed at dramatizing Eisenhower's candidacy and his appearances before crowds. White House Press Secretary James C. Hagerty told reporters yesterday the agency will contribute its technical services without charge, "as a public service," for the Wednesday night TV production, a sort of panel show with four Cabinet members joining the President before the cameras. Eisenhower will share the screen with Atty. Gen. BrowneH, Secretary of the Treasury Humphrey, Secretary of Agriculture Benson and Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare Hobby. This lineup indicated the President might skip foreign affairs and perhaps his controversial Air Force budget cuts as well, since neither Secretary of State Dul!e_ nor Secretary of Defense Wilson was chosen for the panel. : :ow ever, Eisenhower might well decide to talk about foreign affairs and defense matters himself. Hagerty said the President will discuss "the accomplishments made by the administration" and tlso will chat with the Cabinet members about the work of their departments. Eisnhower and his aides will go on all four major television ne works at 8:30 p.m. ,EST, Wedne Jay. The program also will b broadcast simultaneously on Eon- radio outlets and from recording ater on others. row. Saying the proposed cut was "too drastic." Yorty predicted, "probably they will increase the Air Force by about as many planes as originally planned in the Truman budget for next year by making sacrifices in other departments." Former President Truman's budget set a mid-1955 goal of 143 combat wings of 30 to 75 planes each. The later fund cuts envisaged 120 wings.
