6A OGDEN, UTAH, WEDNESDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 6, 1971 ED 5 TO RIALS United Action Passes Utah Parks Bills Passage by the U.S. House of Representatives on Monday of bills expanding Canyonlands National Park and upgrading Arches and Capitol Reef national monuments to national park status proves the effectiveness of united action by the Utah congressional delegation. Similar bills had gone through the U.S. Senate earlier. All that remains before the measures go to President Nixon for his signature is agreement on details at a Senate-House conference committee meeting. Such an agreement should be easy to attain, if the present bi-partisan approach is maintained. And it should. The Utah parks bills were introduced in the House by Rep. K. Gunn McKay, D- Utah, with Rep. Sherman P. Lloyd, R- Utah, as co-sponsor. In the Senate, Democrat Frank E. Moss introduced the measures, with his Republican colleague, Wallace F. Bennett, as co-sponsor. It is important to note that Rep. Wayne N. Aspinall, D-Colo., chairman of the House Interior Committee, and Rep. Roy A. Taylor, D-N.C., chairman of the subcommittee on parks and recreation, served as floor managers on the legisla- -tion. Their endorsement was critical in obtaining unopposed House passage during a session that required only 16 minutes for approval of all three bills. Canyonlands National Park has been in existence since 1964. The expansion proposal adds nearly 80,000 acres to the park, taking in four fringe areas that are particularly attractive, and bringing its total size to 337,258 acres. Arches National Monument, set aside in 1929, was greatly expanded in a.-proc" lamation' issued by President Lyndon B. Johnson a few hours before he left the White House early in 1969. The new measure refines LBJ's boundaries in accordance with local requirements, as well as giving the monument its park status.. House-approved acreage is 73,140. Capitol Reef National Monument, established in 1937, was also enlarged by President Johnson but its new boundaries will be drawn in slightly to a final size— if the Senate agrees—of 241,671 acres. Provision is made in the legislation for studies of road and utility corridors that can be built only if they have no adverse effect on the environment. When President Nixon signs these bills, it will mean Utah will have five national parks—Zion, Bryce, Canyonlands, Arches and Capitol Reef. They'll all be on every map—including those that ignore national monuments. California also has five national parks —Kings Canyon, Lassen Volcanic, Redwood, Sequoia and Yosemite. So, technically, the two states tie for the national park championship. However, Utah in fact is in first place because two of California's national parks — Kings Canyon and Sequoia—are so close together and similar that they have a common superintendent and in practice count only as one attraction. There's a move to call Utah "The Park State." With the latest action in : Washington, we come close to earning that honor.

It has been known for years that most of the heroin—up to 80 per cent, according to semi-official figures — that comes into the United States is processed in "laboratories" in Marseilles. It is obvious that these French drug producers can thrive only if they enjoy protection, in one form or another, from prosecution. Speaking in Dallas at ceremonies marking issuance of new stamps aimed at drug abuse prevention, Postmaster General Blount declared: "We need to prod France vigorously. If the American people decided to boycott French goods until the cost of the boycott exceeded the benefits of the drug traffic out of Marseilles, then greater ef- forts might be taken to end that traffic." We applaud the bluntness of the Blount statement. It's time that U.S. officials put into words the frustrations of narcotics officers who see their work undercut by the way French police wink at the drug network's operations. When word of the postmaster general's boycott threat reached Paris, there were howls of anguish from both the U.S. embassy and French authorities. The embassy, charged with directing delicate trade arrangements with French exporters, promptly pointed out that Postmaster General Blount is no longer a member of the Nixon Cabinet. This has been true since the U.S. Postal Sen/ice which- he heads became a semi-private agency. We concede that Win ton'Blount, former president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, is no longer an official administration spokesman. But in this case of French protection of heroin processing and shipment he speaks for millions of Americans. WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND U.S. State Department Overlooks Red Spies before them.
