PAGE EIGHT 350 Pilgrims Die on. Trek to Seat Of Sacred God in Fierce Storm NEW DELHI, India IB—Newspapers reported today at least 350 pilgrims perished and many others are missing in u fierce storm that caught them on a trek toward the sacred seat of (he Hindu gods on the high, glacial slopes of tlie Himalayas. A spokesman for the Indian government said he doubted if an accurate count of the dead was possible, however, because the pilgrims were scattered over many miles of mountain trails when the post-monsoon snows overtook them. They were struggling toward tlie headwater region of tlie holy flanges River for tlie annual Mimt Mahesh festival, which draws thousands of pilgrims. The storm whipped across the highest passes— 18,000 feet above sea level — at Sliangnrajot, 05 miles from Ciiam- ba In HImachal Pradesh Stale. Caves Provide Refuge Survivors were quoted by Now Delhi's papers ns saying many sought refuge In caves. Their fate was unknown. Others died of exhaustion on the return Journey to tlie plains. Indian officials necking confirmation of the reported death toll were handicapped by the fact that the surviving pilgrims were scattered in many small bands. The only sources for news were (lie survivors or rescue workers since the remote highlands are beyond the reaches of motor highways and telegraph service. One rescuer, n Junior government official, was credited with saving 150 suffering pilgrims before he himself collapsed and died from cold mill exhaustion. It was reported that many of the pilgrims taking shelter in caves paid guides 10 rupees ($2.10) per head for supplying tiny fires. As reports of pilgrim dcallis from the Himalayan storm poured from foolhlll towns into district coalers officials acknowledged that there had been a major disaster. Little Relief 1'roflded But India has little organised relief on a national scale, and the report* of moss deaths caused slight stir In the national capital Officials of the central government said they had received no appea for help f rom iji nilt clml Pradesh State and had only newspaper reports of the disaster. One reason for tho high death list was that most of tliose making the difficult Journey are aged and Inform persons seeking a dip in (he Ganges or other holy waters before dying. For the. Manl Mahesh festival, Hindus must make their way on foot over more than 200 miles of trails. They carry scant food supplies or buy simple foods from mountain herdsmen. The faithful believe there Is no surer way to heaven than to die there where the gods live . Yankee Jets Pirate Show In England FARNSBOROUGH, England (!}•> —Ten mysterious American-matte Eabro jets gate-crashed Britain's exclusive annual air show here yesterday and stole the show with a 20-minute flying exhibition.
