New quake
may strike
in Peking

TOKYO (M--Chinese authori-
ties fear that an expected new
earthquake will strike closer to
Peking-and possibly with even
greater force-than the devas-
tating t r e m or s that rocked
northwest China last week, for-
eigners evacuated from the Chi-
nese capital said yesterday.
Hundreds of members of Pe-
king's diplomatic community
and other foreigners arrived in
Tokyo and Hong Kong yester-

day and told of the first frantic
minutes after last Wednesday's
quakes and of the continuing
apprehension of new earth-
quakes that would make re-
building efforts futile.
PAT CHORNYAK, wife of a
U.S. liaison mission official in
Peking, said here that Chinese
authorities had warned that the
epicenter of a possible new
quake "was moving closer to

Peking." The authorities also
believe the new quake "can be
stronger than those of July 28,"
said Francesca Miceli, wife of
an Italian embassy official, as
she arrived in Rome.
The first tremor last Wednes-
day struck with a force of 8.2
on the Richter scale and was
centered near Tangshan, an in-
dustrial city of one million peo-
ple about 100 miles east-south-
east of Peking. A second major

tremor hit in approximately the
same area and reached a mag-
nitude of 7.9.
'The Chinese government has
not issued any report on total
c a s u a l t i e s, but speculation
based on sketchy reports has
placed the number of dead and
injutred at anything from tens of
thousands to one million. For-
eigners who were in Tangshan
said most of the city was de-
stroyed.
