EDWARDS HONG KONG ffl--Typhoon Rose killed-more than 90 persons in Hong Kong and surrounding \yaters today when it hit the British colony head-on with 130-mile an hour winds and 12 inches of rain. The storm capsized a ferry, destroyed 40 fishing' boats, grounded a U.S. Navy supply ship and 25 other ocean vessels and caused floods and landslides. Crewmen Drown Between 75 and 80 crewmen d r o w n e d when the Hong Kong-Macao ferry Fatshan capsized. Four survivors said the rest of the crew was trapped inside the hull. A family of five drowned aboard a fishing junk, and nine others were crushed or swept to their death ashore by landslides or flood waters that destroyed their homes. More than 200 persons were injured and 2,500 made homeless. It was the worst typhoon to hit Hong Kong since 1962, when Typhoon Wanda took more thn 250 lives. The Fatshan had discharged its passengers after a run from Macao 24 hours before. Survivors said the ship broke from its moorings during the storm, and the captain tried to shelter in the lee of outlying Lantao Island, but. the 130 m.p.h. winds turned it over. Helicopter pilots who flew over the wreck said it was on its side in 30 feet of water. Ship Aground The 8,000-ton U.S. Navy ship Hegulus was driven aground on Kaui Chai, another outlying island, and the Navy said one of her 270 crewmen got some broken ribs and five others had minor injuries. A British navy minesweeper went to the ship and took off most of the crew, leaving behind a skeleton force to assess the damage and make emergency repairs. Two U.S. Navy tugs went out to start salvage operations. Navy officials said there appeared to be no danger of the Regulus breaking up, but they said it might be several days before they knew the extent of the damage. Ashore, f i r e m e n rescued about 40 Chinese after their five-story apartment building collapsed, but four children were buried under some 20 tons of earth and rocks in a landslide that crushed their home. The heavy rains washed down scores of squatters' huts from the steep 'hillsides, but most of their inhabitants heeded broadcasts warning of the storm 24 hours in advance and took refuge in schools and other public buildings. An explosion and fire in a power substation blacked put Kowloon, a city of two million people across the harbor from Hong Kong Island. Transportation and commu- n i c a t i o n s were disrupted throughout Hong Kong, with the downtown business and financial district hardest hit. The currency market and the gold and silver exchange were closed by the storm. Withdrawal Pace Is Called Too Fast SAIGON W -- Rep. G. V. Montgomery, D-Miss., said today that he will try to persuade President Nixon to halt the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Vietnam until Hanoi gives better assurances that it will free all American prisoners of war. He added that he doubts he can influence Nixon. Montgomery, an admitted "hawk," returned to Saigon after meeting with North Vietr nameese officials in Vientiane, the Laoti'an capital. He told newsmen: "I strongly feel that until the North Vietnamese give us more information on POWs and better assurances of getting all the Americans · back, we should consider stopping troop withdrawals. "I'm concerned that we have gone too far ... It could get to the point where we're going to be out of here and not get our prisoners back. "I'm going to talk to Nixon but I don't think there is any need for legislation. After all, Nixon is the commander in chief . . . "I doubt he'll go along with me on this, considering the current political climate and the upcoming elections next year." Montgomery said the troop withdrawal is "orderly, working very well." But he said the United States will have to maintain air support in South Vietnam -- "both Air Force and Air Cavalry" -- for at least another year to protect the withdrawing forces. "This would put us into late 1972 or early 1973," he said. PRESSURE ON DOLLAR Just Doing a .58 .2 .21 1.31 .03 .09 4,23 Steel Firms Not Sure Of Effects of Freeze PITTSBURGH ffl -- Some steel companies have praised President Nixon's efforts to revitalize the economy, but withheld comment on how the 90-day freeze on wages and prices would affect the industry. AIT major companies announced an average 8 per cent price hike on most products the first week of August, shortly after agreeing to a new three-year contract with tlie U n i t e d Steelworkers Union. Hikes on semifinished bar, rod and wire, s t r u c t u r a l , plate, railroad and tubular products went into effect Aug. 5, 'out the increases on others must wait until the price freeze ends. Both the board chairman of Bethlehem Steel and Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel said yesterday they were encouraged by the moves to revitalize the economy. The U n i t e d Steelworkers union, which won an immediate 50-cent-an-hour increase in its contract approved Aug. 1, said it was confused by the President's order. Union spokesmen said officials were trying to determine how the freeze would affect companies w i t h contracts which expire in August, September and October. "We can't have some steelworkers making more than others because of a wage freeze," a spokesman said. Thirty-five graduates are due to receive degrees from the U n i v e r s i t y of Corpus Christi during summer commencement exercises at 8 p.m. today in the Moody-Sustainers Field House on the campus. Greetings will be made to the class by Dr. Kenneth A. Maroney, UCC p r e s i d e n t ; Jack R. Blackmon, chairman of the UCC Board of Trustees; and Robert A. Gammage, s t a t e representative from Houston and president of the UCC Alumni Association. Music will be provided by Loyd Lott, organist, and Edgar L. Nolte, tenor. The invocation, dedication and benediction will be responsive readings. [_ Births J U.S. Naval Mr. ond Mrs. Gerald A. Jones Sr. 337 Pelican, a son, Aug. 5. .Mr. and Mrs. Donald A.

LONDON ffl -- Only in movies and the imagination can you find back-street money changers with enough cash to m a n i p u l a t e currency exchanges and' undermine the tetrength of the U.S. dollar. In European financial centers you will find highly .paid financial executives for respected multinational corporations. They job is to protect their companies', financial reserves by keeping them in a strong currency. The buying and sellino; this requires is what President Nixon called "an 'all-out war on the American dollar," For the executives involved, it's not war or even speculation. It's making sure no one pulls the rug from under their company's bank accounts. Kurt Hansen, chairman of West Germany's giant Bayer Chemical Corp., said that if Bayer failed to play the money market, "my shareholders would hang me." Many other big companies -- trading firms, automobile manufacturers; oil "companies -- feel the same way. They hold enormous cash reserves and would be hard-put to explain to shareholders why the reserves didn't grow, or why they suddenly sank 10 per cent one night when some currency was devalued. So they trade legally. They buy and sell currencies in chunks of millions of dollars. "The corporations have a lot of high-priced talent whose only job is to put the company's money to the best possible earning use," said an American oil executive in London. Some $50 billion is constantly on the move among Europe's f i n a n c i a l capitals. About $40 billion is in Eurodollars, the name given to U.S. dollars held in European bank accounts. 13-Year- If a French cheese distributor sells $500,000 worth of Camembert to U.S. stores, for example, the dollars he is paid contribute another half a million to the Eurodollar market. It was the continued repetition of such sales -- and the consequent accumulation of dollars in Europe -- that led many money managers to feel a glut on the dollar market last spring. As the Supply grew, the demand fell. Soon some of the financial executives began selling their dollars to buy French francs or German marks. These shifts, counted in millions of dollars, raised the pressure on the United States to devalue its dollar -- to make it less valuable in relation to the other currencies and thus more in line with the demand and supply. Backstreet money changers cash in on the fluctuations, but they cause no crises. If they were the only ones selling dollars, no pressure would be felt. SAN ANTONIO JP) -- A 13- year-old boy was fatallly stabbed early yesterday when he sought to" protect his invalid mother as she was being beaten outside a tavern at nearby Von Ormy. Edward Charles Barrientes, of San Antonio, was dead on arrival at a hospital early yesterday of a single stab wound in the chest. Hospital spokesmen said the knife penetrated the boy's heart. Sheriff Lt. Alfred Carreon Said the boy and his mother, Mrs. Jan Barrientes, 35, were seated in an auto in the tavern parking lot with four other persons about 2:30 a.m. when Mrs. Barrientes called to a man. According to Carreon, Mrs. Barrientes was shot several years ago and has since been confined to a wheel chair, unable to walk. C a r r e o n said the man walked to the auto, talked briefly to Mrs. Barrientes then began Quarrelling with her. Witnesses in the auto said the man jerked open the car door and pulled Mrs. Barrientes to the ground, then began striking her. The woman's son was the first to reach her side, witnesses said, but was stabbed before others realize3 what wa : s happening. Carreon said the others in the car were unable to apprehend the suspect who fled the scene. Mrs. Barrientes was released from a hospital after treatment for facial lacerations. Review of Drug Offense Cases Slated by Army WASHINGTON (JPI -- Secretary of Defense Melvin R. Laird has "ordered review of applications for amnesty from servicemen discharged under less-than-honorable circumstances for drug abuse. Tlie action implements a plan announced to Congress last month by Deputy Secretary of Defense David M. Packard. The five services were told by Laird yesterday to review on a case-by-case basis the appeals from former servicemen that the less-than-honorable designation be lifted. The move would allow the men free medical treatment from the Veterans Administration, something which is denied without an honorable discharge. The Pentagon said 4,152 servicemen were issued undesirable discharges in 1!)69 and 1970 because of drug abuse. Applications, w h i c h are available at all personnel offices on military installations, must be filed within 15 years of the date of discharge.
