MONDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1976 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N *Good morning 9 ends long coma ELOIT, Wis. (AP) - After 52 days in a coma 22- yearold Judith Steuck broke her long silence with the simple greeting, "Good morning." "It just amazed us, that's all I can say," her father Eugene Steuck, 53, said of the experience. "It's a mira' cle." Miss Steuck had been in the intensive care unit at Beloit Memorial Hospital since Dec. 22, under treatment for what was described as a carbon monoxide-induced coma. Five days earlier, she had been found unconscious in her hotel room in Madrid, Spain. Her parents said Miss Steuck, who has a bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin, had been studying overseas at the time, working toward a master's degree in behavioral disabilities. Mrs. Steuck explained t h a t her daughter was staying at a youth hostel in Madrid and borrowed a portable heating unit for her room. She was found unconscious the next day. Doctors had also treated Miss Steuck for pneumonia and a high fever while she was in the coma, and members of her family visited regularly "just looking for the blink of an eyelid, the moving of a leg, anything like that" as a sign of recognition, Steuck said. "We never gave up," he said, "Not one day did we give up. We knew she was going to come back. We knew in our heart she would come back." Miss Steuck, who spoke Saturday, remains hospitalized in serious condition with "a long way to go yet" toward recovery, her parents said. Her mother said Miss Steuck was able to remember some things that had been spoken in her presence during her coma. Tucson man knifed at prison PHOENIX (AP) -- An Arizona State Prison inmate was in satisfactory condition at Maricopa County Hospital today after suffering stab wounds. George Sayre, 24, of Tucson, was admitted to the hospital Saturday night, said assistant warden Dwight Carey. Sayre was "injured at about 6 p.m. Saturday 'on the run,' (an area which runs alongside the cell area)," Carey said. "He was taken out of the cell area proper. He was bleeding and a guard took him over to the hospital. He was treated and taken up to (Maricopa) County." John Moran, state corrections director, said the stabbing occurred in Cellblock 2, part of the main prison complex at Florence. In June 1974, Sayre and another prisoner of the Pima County Jail escaped, but were captured 20 minutes later, sheriff's deputies said. At that time, Sayre was charged with theft after a prior conviction. Library is topic at Ore The Canyon del Oro Community School Council will sponsor a public forum Thursday on library facilities needed by residents living on the metropolitan area's Norths west Side. Panelists will include County Supervisors Joseph Castillo and Conrad Joyner and Tucson Public Library Director John F. Anderson. The meeting is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Canyon del Oro High School Multipurpose room. Charlotte M. Keating, chairman of the council's "Let's Talk" forum committee, says of specific concern is a branch library "supposedly included in Item 4 of the 1974 bond election proposals." "A branch library to expand service for Marana, Oro Valley, Catalina and other sections of northern Tucson is a subject of considerable interest," she said. "Residents thought they were voting for such a facility when they voted favorably on Item 4." Big Brothers meet Thursday The Big Brothers of Tucson organization will hold its annual meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday at Kennedy Auditorium, 3833 E. 2nd St. Thirty- six Big Brothers will be honored at the meeting for their participation in the program. The public is invited to attend the meeting, which will feature a magic act by Little Brother Mike Lanfor and his Big Brother, Vic Andrew. PAGE 19 Relief efforts under way Death toll 15,000 in Guatemala GUATEMALA CITY (AP) -- Helicopter relief teams took supplies to towns and villages isolated by the Guatemalan earthquake and returned with reports that today raised the official toll to more than 15,000 dead, an estimated 40,000 injured and 200,000 homeless. The death toll jumped repeatedly as the national emergency relief committee got more information from outlying areas cut off until the first relief helicopters reached them late yesterday. Engineers worked to open more roads blocked by landslides and to repair broken bridges. Relief officials put survivors to work, and promised them extra food according to the hours they worked clearing roads or burying the dead. Spot checks by reporters in several sections struck by the devastating q u a k e last Wednesday and also hit by more than 525 aftershocks showed aid .was g e t t i n g through. In some places it was only a trickle, but that was welcome for people who had had nothing but bits of stale bread and brackish water for five days.

"We need salt, sugar and lime for making corn meal." Lucas said 2,904 of the town's 3,760 people were killed when the earthquake dropped a large area about 20 feel in elevation. "There is immediate danger of an epidemic unless the bodies are buried or burned," he said. But he said orders to burn the bodies might cause a riot. In Chimaltenango, a city of 20,000, a bulldozer dug a trench 500 yards long and 10 yards wide, and about 400 bodies were buried in it. Ex-Adm. Zumwalt slates speech here Adm. Elmo R. Zumwalt (ret.), who once was the youngest -man ever to head the U.S. Navy, will be in Tucson Saturday for a dinner and speech sponsored by the Desert Ulpan.

"1 spent all day in a village burning bodies," said Lt. Armando Echeverria. "We used a bulldozer at the cemetery to open fresh graves along with the old.
