Interior sources say the National Outdoor Recreation Plan, which also called for mori. effective use of federal land and existing programs, was eventu ally quashed by the Office o: Management and Budget.

The proposals "didn't reflec the new administration's thinl ing," said Edwin A.

Some of the earlie conclusions, he said, "were no supported by the analysis" an didn't reflect any citizen partic: pation. The Bureau of Outdoor Recre ation budgeted $800,000 durin fiscal 1972 and 1973 for outdooo planning, and the new nationa study is scheduled to be read next year. According to testimo ny of an Interior official befor Senate committee, the reports and planning that went into the initial study cost $6.8 million. PRICES EFFECTIVE SUNDAY ONLY! 1:00 P.M.
