Two climbing details equipped ttith first-aid facilities and stretcher.-; climbed the mountain when puards at the Fort Bliss training cantonment reported distress signals, and spotters professed to see t«'o figures near the summit Ifcugh field telescopes. Col. \Valtrr W. Burns, com- tiianner of the 260th, said today 'hree youths were encountered on • he heights, but that they ran sway \vlien searching parties approached.
