In 1976 he launched a "Right Around Home" program in the region, designed to make people familiar with "the great national park units within a day's drive of their home." The program encouraged energy conservation and discourag visitation to those National Park units that were being "loved to death" while at the same time awakening in- terest in some little used parks in the system. In 1976 the editors of Public Relations News picked his program as one of the 10 best public relations programs in America, ranking it with General Motors, Corning Glass and seven other of the nation's best. In 1977 the "Right Around Home" program was recognized for its excellence by Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge.

Mentzer's federal career began 16 years ago as public affairs officer in the 16-state Northeast Region, headquar- tered in Philadelphia. Along with Regional Directo ton Garrison, Mentzer started an environmental program that grew into today's En. vironmen{:al Awareness program. The two men also opened an environmental study area at Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt National Historic Site, N.Y -- one of the first sueh areas of "natural" interpretation in an historic area.

" In a telegram to the president, Allan Grant, president of the American Farm Buread Federation, xecommended that no action be taken at this time to increase meat imports, saying his position "is supported by an analysis of the present and prospective beef situation." The telegram said that beef prices are currently at levels substantially above those an- ticipated by most, if not all, forecasters and may stabilize or even decline if nothing is done. Farm Bureau said that rising domestic beef prices, long overdue, area very small part of the government's inflation problem and charged that the basic cause of inflation is ex- cessive government spending "Renegotiation of the existing voluntary quotas on foreign beef or a complete suspension of the costly to the U.S. cattle producers and feeders who have sustained tremendous financial losses over the past several years due to inflation and the adverse effects of the cattle cycle, compounded by drought," the telegram said. Pointing out that hundreds of millions of dollars of debt have been incurred by cattlemen due to the loss position of the cattle industry for the past four years, Farm Bureau said the beef in- dustry, resp'onding to higher prices, is now beginning to rebuild cattle herds. Farm Bureau added that the beef industry has the ability to meet the needs of consumers "barring artificial interruptions to the production and marketing of livestock and meat." TWIN T ENG. Donald T.
