Survivors found after
island volcano erupts

Milliken-
.. .pushing Proposal A

HONOLULU (AP)-Some 30 residen-
ts of a remote Northern Marianas
island were sighted at daybreak today
standing on the beach after a volcanic
eruption that sent lava streaming
toward their village, the Coast Guard
said,
The island's 54 villagers had not been
heard from since one of two volcanoes
on the tiny island of Pagan, 350 miles
north of Guam, erupted Thursday,
belching ash 40,000 feet into the air, in
its first eruption in 26 years.
There was no word on the rest of the
island's population.
THE SIGHTING of the villagers was
reported by a Japanese cargo ship, the
Hoyo Maru, which had detoured to the
island after the eruption, the Coast
Guard's search and rescue office on
Guam said. The ship reported it was
sending small boats to pick up the
islanders.
The volcano's activity was weaker
today with nq sign of a lava flow, the

HoyoMaru said.
A second ship, the Trust Territory
vessel Kaselehia, was expected to
arrive at Pagan today. It had been
enroute to Saipan, capital of the Nor-
thern Marianas.
Before the Hoyo Maru's arrival, the
island had been hidden beneath a
blanket of smoke.
"WE COULDN'T see much of
anything," said Lt. Sandy Stairs, a
Navy public affairs officer who flew
over the island before Hoyo Maru's
arrival. "It was like being fogbound."
Some authorities had believed the
residents-most of them farmers and
fisherman-may have fled to caves, as
they do during typhoons,. for refuge
from the heat and fiery molten rock.
A Coast Guard C-130 rescue plane
was sent from Guam, and the rescue
vessel Fentress was en route from
Saipan and expected to arrive later
today.
