Peru Eyes Jungle For More By DEAN JOHNSOS LIMA, Peru (AP) - Peru's president sees the jungles of Peru's l,000,mile link in the|nected with the airstrip area, South America as one answer to finding more land to meet the hunger of exploding populations. It can be done, President Fernando Belaunde Terry says, by making the most of such things as a new highway skirting the western fringes of the Amazon basin. He considers this a top- priority project in what he calls the task of our time — development of the "South American heartland" on ttie east side of the Andes. He is bound to push this idea, whenever he gets the chance, at the summit meeting of hemispheric chiefs of state next week in Punta del Este, Uruguay. The new road, called the car- retera marginal or marginal highway because of its route, will connect with similar highways in Ecuador and Bolivia. The Andes Mountains, Borne of their peaks dwarfing anything in North America or Europe, run virtually all the way down South America's west coast. They extend inland about 300 miles, and have been a barrier to commerce and development in the tropical interiors of the countries. * * * Belaunde, in a statement to The Associated Press, said the highway will help create on the east side of the Andes "a new environment rejuvenated by modern medicine, energy and transportation." "Along the east side of the Andes," Belaunde said, "from Maracaibo to Venezuela to Santa Cruz in Bolivia, energy, fuel and oil for industrial purposes, refrigeration .and dehydration are assured by large water resources, natural gas deposits and oil fields. "This is the area which will be tapped by the marginal highway." lighway is scheduled for completion in 1979. The planned cost if $172 million is being put up by the U.S. Export-Import Bank and the Peruvian government. Peruvian officials say expenditures are constantly rising and the final cost Will exceed the original estimate. While emphasizing the highway, Belaunde finds that air transport should be promoted in underdeveloped areas initially: Under the philosophy "the airplane before the truck," the Peruvian leader observed: "First, we build an airstrip in the jungle. "Around the airstrip we the trucks will come and everyone will realize new riches." Belaunde said that tropical regions of the world ar "changing from unhealthy ai eas to places for mental an physical rest and relaxation." He singled out Miami, Fla where he once lived. As an example of a "swampy and uninhabitable area at tSie turn of the century" that was transformed into a garden spot. This was accomplished, said, in a climate "not superior !o our high South American jungle." With modem advances in technology and medicine, NEWS BRIEFS LANSING, Mich.

But what do most of them do after they land a steady job? Move out to a suburb. If a man works in the suburb where he lives, he can have a tine and happy life. He is probably a native there, and happy in its folkways. But if a man only uses a suburb as a bedroom and a weekend resort but still has to go to and from the city each day to earn his bread and butter, he is a pilgrim in eternal shuttle, a prisoner of bus or railroad timetables. He is thrice enslaved — to his job, to his transit system, and to the inordinate demands of his little green and wfiite castle cramped on a quarter acre plo in the suburbs.
