predicting Hugo SOURCE National Hurricane Center REGINALD MYERS DAN CLIFFORD Miami Herald Staff By STEPHEN KDOIG Herald Start Writer As if predicting Hugo’s path wasn’t difficult enough forecasters are facing the additional complication of Tropical Storm Iris which is trailing Hugo in lock step about 650 miles to the east Satellite photos indicate that the two storms are interacting but exactly how they ultimately will affect each other is guesswork — including the somewhat hopeful guess that each storm may inhibit the other from growing Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Coral Gables sent an instrument-laden tracking plane into the region around the storms Tuesday afternoon to get a better idea of what’s going on- They already know it isn’t coincidence that Iris is following Hugo’s track: Both are close enough to be moved PLEASESEE IRIS 12A mm HELP’S AT HAND Numbers you can call for information about hurricane preparedness where the storms are or how you can

Utterly ruined by Hurricane Hugo this island collapsed into lawlessness and fear Tuesday suffering the worst effects of a devastating storm With shopping centers in Chris-tiansted the island’s largest town jammed with looters and reports of gangs moving through the streets with rifles frightened tourists begged for help — fearful that they might be robbed or worse by the homeless mob “Please get us help There’s no food there’s no water there’s no electricity There are people walking through the streets with rifles looting We think we may be next” said Rick Green of New York a vacationing

edge of Bahamas By MARTIN MERZER Herald Senior Writer Turning its back on the islands it trampled so harshly Hurricane Hugo surged through the Atlantic today grazing the outer edge of the Bahamas as it mustered strength for an expected assault somewhere along the United States’ Eastern Seaboard Forecasters peered into notoriously unreliable long-range outlooks and gingerly predicted that South Florida would be spared from Hugo’s full fury But they warned that the storm was expected to turn toward the US coast by tonight and still could strike anywhere — including here Hugo’s progress late Tuesday and early today suggested that the shift toward the coast had begun but forecasters said it was too soon to tell A hurricane watch was expected to be posted this morning for some or all of the coastal area between Florida and North Carolina Jerry Jarrell deputy director of the National Hurricane Center in Coral Gables said Hugo’s most likely landfall would occur between Cape Canaveral and Cape Hatteras NC an admittedly wide area Pressed for a narrower guess he pointed to Central or North Florida possibly as early as Friday Forecasters said there was a 9 percent chance the PLEASESEE HUGO 12A Showdown looms between Bush Congress over policy on East bloc By james McCartney Herald Washington Bureau WASHINGTON — The first major challenge to President Bush on foreign policy is mounting in Congress over the president’s cautious “show me” posture toward revolutionary change in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union Top-level Democrats supported SOVIETS MAY SPEED REFORM 9A by many scholars are charging that Bush may be passing up historic opportunities to promote democracy with “timid” policies and a lack of imagination They are charging that Bush’s support from long-sought democratic change in Poland Hungary and the Soviet Union has been "puny” that he is dragging his feet on arms control1 and that he is failing to preserve a new relationship with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev painstakingly built by President Reagan The debate is now shaping up as the first major confrontation on for- PLEASESEE POLICY 4A It’s America’s Clip again Judge’s ruling overturned By ERIC SHARP Herald Sports Writer The soap-opera saga of the America’s Cup took another twist Tuesday when an appeals court ordered the 138-year-old yachting trophy returned to the San Diego Yacht Club which won the Cup last September only to lose it in a New York courtroom in March The appeals division of the New York State Supreme Court voted 4-1 that Justice Carmen Ci-parick was wrong when she ruled that the American club had to forfeit the trophy to New Zealand’s Mercury Bay Boat Club New Zealand’s lumbering 130-foot monohull PLEASESEE CUP 10A Vatican seeks relocation of Auschwitz convent would help fund move Los Angeles Times Service VATICAN CITY — The Vatican moved decisively Tuesday to improve strained relations between Roman Catholics and Jews saying that a convent of Carmelite nuns at the Auschwitz death camp in Poland should indeed be relocated and offering to help pay the cost Although there was no direct sign of it in a carefully worded statement issued by the Vatican press office the action was tantamount to papal intervention in a dispute that had become an international embarrassment to the Vatican Vatican sources said they thought Tuesday’s statement would encourage action by Polish prelates who had balked at carrying out a 1987 agreement with Jewish leaders to move the convent of 14 contemplative Polish and German nuns About 25 million Jews were among 4 million people PLEASESEE CONVENT 4A lATALE OFiTWO LISTS8T0PS FOR MOVIE US names 25 film ‘treasures’ ‘raii'Miin By RYAN MURPHY Herald Staff Writer The government confirmed

gems of the silver screen also made the first cut and were registered in the National Film Registry as treasures “The films named today are important to America’s culture and history” said Librarian
