(AP Wirephqto) Camille Claws Mississippi; Leaves Mass Of Wreckage GULFPORT, Miss. Hurricane Camille clawed inland across Mississippi's piney hills, today, leaving the resort coastal area stunned by a night of wind, rain and raging tides. First reports from the blacked- out area showd six per- sons had been killed. Two others were reported killed in Gulfport. 40 Hospitalized Mrs. Julia Guice, Biloxi Civil Defense director, also reported some 40 persons hospitalized and fires burning out of control because of debris blocking the streets to fire I rucks. There also were reports of heavy fire dam- age at Waveland and Bay St. Louis r.earby. Because of a commualcallons blackout which left most tele- phone and power lines down, there was little Information fil- tering out of the hard-hit area. State Sen.

Ray Decelle said. The U.S. Weather Bureau in New Orleans, tracking Camille as she moved inland, said she was dying but still with winds of IK m.p.h. around her eye as she headed north to- ward Jackson. She was moving north-north- west at a speed.of 15 to 20 m.pJi. Tornado warnings were up for most of the southern half of Mississippi until a.m. In Jackson, GOT. John Bell tVilliams said he would make an inspection tour of the disaster area later in the morning. Decelle said every street In Gulfport was blocked by fallen trees and wreckage, with some wildings demolished and nearly all damaged. Radio reports from the high- way patrol said fires burned out of control for hours in both Gulf- sort and Bilori after Camille passed, with fire fighting units unable to reach them. Biloxi police said flooding due to heavy rain or raging high tides was 10 feet deep or more in some sections of the city and the bridge between Bilori and Ocean Springs was knocked out. Keesler Air Force Base at Bi- lori reported that tides 20 feet feet above normal- were jammed ashore by the first of Camille's winds. Smashes Ashore The center of the tightly com- pressed circular storm, one ol the most violent in weather bu- reau annals, smashed ashore out of the Gulf of Mexico near Gulfport Sunday night. Camille's shrieking winds mounted to 200 m.p.h. as she swerved northwestward. Her worst fury was near her center but even on her outer edges Camille packed a wallop. On her way across Chandleur sound she lashed New Orleans, on her western edge, with winds ip to 100 m.p.h. Mobile, Ala., ca ber eastern rim, had winds up o 75 m.p.h. with tornadoes skip- iing through rural areas. Gale winds eitended another 20 miles or so on all sides of he storm. The U.S. Weather Bureau said ?amille would weaken rapidly as it moved across the inland rea, moving generally north- ward at about IS m.p.h.

It could move over into the former Hathaway Baking building area (next to the Maple Street. parking into the urban'renewal area, or in with the fire department.' Comments On Letters As for the letters, from the police commissioners and Guer- tin, Sullivan dismissed t he m with this statement: 'One judge calls another Soviets Upset By U.S. Wooing Peking By BERNARD GWERTZMAN Niw York Times Newt serrtca MOSCOW Soviet authori- ties are showing increasing con- cern with the Nixon administra- tion's publicly stated desire to improve relations with Commu- nist China. Although few Soviet officials are thought to expect a new cor- diality to develop soon from Washington's overtures to Pe- king, many Western diplomats here believe the Kremlin is dis- turbed by the Nixon adminis- tration's gestures of friendship lo Mao Tse-Tung at a time when the Soviet Union's relations with China are so poor. The Soviet concern is. being loudly voiced in the newspapers and on the radio, which charged Refuse Is Dumped Near City School 'Complaints about refuse dump; ing on a vacant lot near the Charlotte Avenue School have been registered with the health and police departments. Bat a resident, Mrs. Mary King, 63. Charlotte St., said the complaints hadn'l produced any- thing yet In the way of perrai- Ddit results. She said parents of young children are becoming concerned' because the refuse has attracted rats. A neighbor, she added, killed a large one there yester- day. Mrs. King said the lot is part of the school properly and cars pull up lo it and dump trash there. She said many of the viola- tore are residents of the area. Complaints to the police de- partment, she said, including the report of a violator's license number, did not seem to be fol- lowed up. Informed-of King's com- plaints, Chief Paul J.

Soviet authorities are also in- quiring about ihe recenl visil to Asia by Secretary of State Wil- iam P. Rogers. They are ask- ing such questions as: What is the long-range objec- tive of the American explora- tions? Does the United States con- lemplate negotiations with Chi- na on Asian hegemony? Is the probing a device to put political pressure on the Soviet Union lo extract concessions? .'Underlining the anxiety felt iere, Western diplomats believe, is Ihe tiller state'of-Soviel-Chi- nese relations- and the fact thai Moscow has had to deploy thou- sands of additional soldiers along the Far Eastern frontier this year. Because of ihe gravity of their relations with viet authorities are quile sensi- tive lo any change in (he status quo affecting China. Any change in China's relations; with the United States would markedly affect (his situation from Mos- cow's point of view. 'From Ihe polilical side, Soviet diplomats and ideologists might be hard put lo support their con- tention that Peking is ruled by Fanatics and represents a threat lo world peace. Any easing of relalionj with Washington might be nied by Chba's entry into Ihe United Nations and by a similar reduction of tensions with other count ries, diplom ats specul ate. Soviet policy toward Asia now based largely on ihe supposi- tion that China viH maintain a policy of revolutionary militan- cy, thereby allowing Soviet dip- lomats to gain influence on Ihe grounds China is a threat fo Asian security. Although Mos- cow says it's still undisclosed plan for collective security in Asia Is aimed at every diplomat here assumes it is anti- Chinese in character. On the military side, any un- derstanding between Washington and Peking could lead to. an ar- gument here that Russia's two most dangerous potential foes were now free to devote their lull energies against the Soviet Union, thereby making an in crease in military spending here obligatory. Western diplomats predict that any easing of American- Chinese relations could also lead lo an increase here in Ma, a characteristic that lies beneath the surface of Soviet policy. This increase could lead fo increased crackdowns and calls for vigilance against East and West.

It con- tinued: "They thereby show how ripe they have become for a direct collusion with Imperial his. This was proved by the armed sorties the Chinese pro- vocateurs staged in the area of Zhalanashkol on August II." The concern over possible Chi- nese-American relations has not seemed (o affect Russia's rela- tions with the United Slales. Moscow has nol Indicated any desire lo overwhelm Washing ton with friendship and thus embarrass it in pursuing its China policy, nor has Moscow threatened to worsen relations. There has been some dismay here on the delay in Moscow's response to starting talks with the United States on controlling strategic arms. Many Western diplomats be lieve now that expectations last month of a prompt start were over-optimistic. They say thai Moscow may have laken note of the delay in the American reply lo Ihe Kremlin's willingness and not wish to appear too eager to begin the talks.

"He and Perkins may remain on the bench until they're 70. Some political observers saw the more to make King a as Peterson's way of eliminating some of the competition in the 1970 gubernatorial election. The vole on the all-Republican five- man council was unanimous. To Realize Ambition When King assumes the post [n September, he will have real- ized a life's ambition lo be a judge. When he ran against Cotton, King said publicly he would rather fill the New Hampshire federal district court seat teft vacant by the death of Judge J. Aloysius Connor. But King ran against the veteran Republican at the call of his party. The federal judge- ship, meanwhile, went lo anoth- er Democrat, former Laconia .fayor and Superior Court 'udge Hugh Bownes. In olher action, the council Ipnfirtned the nomination of jquor Commissioner member Costas Tentas of Manchester as chairman of the agency which runs the state's f50-million-a- liquor monopoly.
