DAVIS Jacksonville, Fla. (AP) Tine W.

Starting with a Miami grocery store, Davis and three brothers built a grocery chain expected to gross $5.3 billion this year. SALOMEA NOW AK SCHMIDT Cleveland (AP) Salomea Nowak Schmidt, 81, a pioneer in working with the mentally retarded, is dead, it was reported yesterday.

Schmidt received the Catholic Pro-Ecclesia Medal, the church's highest honor for lay service, from Pope Pius XII. A past vice president of the National Council of Catholic Women, she was a founder of the Council for Retarded Children, a prototype for similar organizations across the United States. BE AN APPLE POLISHER "Finally a policeman rang my bell and that's when I left," she said. Police said the leak was caused by a pressure valve that had stuck in the open position beneath the cylindrical body of the truck. THEY SAID THAT Caulder had done "exactly the right thing" by leaving the truck and summoning help.

Ritter Transportation sent its safety coordinator, John Griffenback, to the scene yesterday afternoon. He joined with police- and fire officials in an attempt to off-load the truck by siphoning the remaining propane through a pair of plastic tubes into another gas truck parked alongside. A police spokesman explained that off-loading was a tedious procedure that had to be performed while firemen continued to hose down both trucks with the cherry picker. By late afternoon three attempts to cap the defective valve, which is necessary to complete the off-loading process, had failed, according to Fire Chief Frank Cruthers. At least two persons said they had become sick from the fumes and they were taken to the Columbia-Presbyte rian Medical Center.

Two elderly resi dents who were bedridden when police entered their apartments also were taken to the hospital. JOSEPHINE MURPHY, a receptionist who usually drives across the bridge to her job in Cresskill, N.J., was among the thousands of motorists virtually stranded in the monumental traffic jam. She said she called her boss to explain and he replied: "You'd better swim across the river." Julius Kahn, a 70-year-old retired manufacturing plant supervisor, was trying to return to his apartment at 700 W. 178th St when police began enforcing the evacuation order. "I couldn't figure out what was going on," he said.

"I just wanted to go eat lunch. I was hungry." He was not allowed back inside. (Continued from page 3) the Connecticut border, more than 15 miles away. Motorists who turned to the Lincoln and Holland tunnels as alternate routes did not fare much better. Both tunnels soon were jammed, and overheated vehicles compounded the problems.

POLICE SAID Caulder, 40, driver for the Ritter Transportation Co. in Rahway, N.J., noticed the fumes and heard a hissing noise as he was approaching the 178th St exit ramp. Caulder reportedly had picked up the gas which is used as a fuel for motor homes and factories and is a raw material in the production of petrochemicals in Linden and was delivering it to Trumbull, Conn. Realizing the danger, he immediately parked the truck, raced down the ramp and called police from a pay phone. Within moments, hundreds of safety officials were at the scene, and police and fire officials agreed that the area had to be evacuated.

One police official said the department-wanted to move in its giant Huey helicopter, lift the tank off the bridge and fly it away. The Fire Department reportedly rejected that proposal as too dangerous. COPS AND FIREMEN fanned out into the neighborhood and began ringing bells and knocking on doors, telling residents they had to leave immediately. Superintendents were told to open the doors of apartments where there was no answer. Many residents thought the police were kidding.

Many didn't want to leave. Police and firemen were patient, but they were firm: Everybody had to go. Grace Saiswaitz, 75, was one of the tenants forced to leave the building at 385 Fort Washington Ave. When she heard the banging and shouts in the hallway, she thought "a lunatic" was on the loose. handed out merchant-reponsibility booklets, in English and Chinese, and litterbags.

Chan said the 60 groups -in the CCBA, including the Chinese Chamber of Commerce and the Chinese Restaurant Association, had agreed to support the clean drive. The cleanup will be carried out in part by workers of the Summer Youth Employment Program with equipment supplied through grants from Xerox, Mobil and the City Investing of which O'Neil is vice chairman. "The Chinese youths assigned to this summer youth project have had the opportunity to improve the appearance of their own neighborhood while receiving a meaningful work experience," said Violet Mitchell, director of field operations for the summer job program."
