Keep it Grand

THE Grand Canyon is among the natural wonders of the world. To see it is to be awed at the power of the forces that carved such a creation from the flat Earth.

Administrators of the canyon park are considering asking for financial support from corporations and private citizens. The number of visitors to the park is growing, jeopardizing its natural integrity. Nearly 5 million people visited the Grand Canyon last year - more than twice as many as came just 10 years ago.

The National Park Service needs more money to improve mass transit and to build roads, parking areas, and commercial sites. Park Service officials may need to limit the number of visitors and vehicles. They fear that Congress may not allocate the money needed. It should. The Clinton administration and Congress should not be stingy on something this important.
