The decline could prompt the central bank to further ease its grip on credit, pushing interest rates lower.

Continued from Page I The state learned of possible hidden treasures in the park after archaeologist Dr. Herman Smith walked through the area with local resident Margaret Pan and found several significant spots. The Texas Antiquities Commission <a branch of the Texas Historical Commission i is calling for a survey of Banda Park to determine exactly where the artifacts may be. That survey would produce a map to pinpoint where the city could safely dig and build new structures. Because the state has learned of the possible artifacts underground here, the city must obtain a permit each time it wants to excavate and build something, such as a tennis court, volleyball court, or hike and bike trail. Smith said he would do the survey for $800. He also said he would watch the crews dig up the sewer line before he goes to Mexico Sunday because the contamination situation is so urgent. He will be paid on a daily basis for watching the sewer line work, which is expected to take about two days. Michie asked archaeology departments at Texas A&M and University of Texas at San Antonio if they could do a survey for free A&M referred him to UTSA, Michie said, and members of the UTSA archaeology department said they could do the work at their actual cost. • It was essential that we check out to see if this work could be done by a university for free,” said Mayor Barbara Tieken. “Obviously, our hands are tied.” -DANA STELL ★ Rivers Continued from Page I riean anything, we’ll wait to get the ive.” The city wants a recommendation rom the state to remove signs along jarts of the Comal River and luanda .ake warning of high bacteria counts n the water “Safe” bacteria levels set out by he state were used in August when he city decided to put up the signs Michie last night told Council that ie would like tile city sanitarian to •ontinue sampling and testing the ^mples in the New Braunfels Jtilities laboratory at least three imes a week. “I am still proposing, at least five lines a month, to have the state lea I th department come in,” Michie aid.

Among that group’s priorities is establishing a seven-member river commission to oversee a river management plan.

The river committee also called for chemical testing of the waterways. Committee chairman Betty Kyle told Council that her group s goal was “foremost to protect our community’s quality of water as well as the quantity .” She also called for coordination among the various committees studying the area’s water. “You can committee it to death,” she said “Get the committees together and figure out who’s pulling this wagon.” Council accepted the River committee’s report and will take action on its recommendations at the January meeting. Continued from Page I Union Carbide Corp. State and city officials said today they will file suits against Union Carbide, alleging that negligence by the corporation caused the disaster. The government of Madhya Pradesh state rejected a Union Carbide offer to contribute more than $1.8 million to a relief fund. The United News of India quoted Arjun Singh, the state’s chief minister, as saying that since the state plans to sue Union Carbide, there is "no question of accepting the token gesture.” Officials of India’s Central Bureau of Investigation said they had made a preliminary determination that poor safety measures at the Union Carbide plant were responsible for the chemical catastrophe.

About one-third of them previously had sought medical help, but returned because of complications, reports said. At least ll more people died Monday and officials said the death toll was at least 2,000. The United News of India said 2.500 people had died. “Most of the doctors believe the symptoms have entered the semiacute stage but the worst is far from over yet. The difference is merely one between fast, immediate death and slow death.” the Times of India reported. Mother Teresa, a 74-year-old Roman Catholic nun who heads the Calcutta-based Missionaries of Charity, said the victims should be provided "love, tenderness and care Let us forgive and try to love each other.... God forgives all.” She visited three hospitals, touching the foreheads of stricken children, praying, and giving each a medallion which she tailed “the miraculous medal of our I -ady Mary.” “We must do everything possible for the children,” she said “It is really sad to see them this way.” Her sisters already are providing relief and Mother Teresa lias been asked by Union Carbide to adopt children left without parents by the chemical holocaust. More than 500 children were reported to be orphaned or separated from their mothers and fathers. Central Bul eau of Investigation officials, w ho spoke on condition they not be named, said the plant violated India’s industrial and environmental safety requirements, as well as the company’s own safety manual.

Council changed the limit on dogs to four. Apparently, the date in the ordinance books still showed Nov. 12. But Perkins did not rule on that issue. He said the testimony at the Dec. 6 Municipal Court trial and the evidence did not match. "At the time the citation was issued i Nov. 16), I was told that there were six adult dogs,” said Boyer. But the testimony only indicated there were five dogs. "The evidence showed more than four, but under the law we have to show evidence that conforms to the complaint.” Two animal wardens testified that on Nov. 16 they saw five adult pit bulls in the yard. New Braunfels patrolman David Wilson had testified that when he responded to a complaint about barking dogs on Od 29, he saw six adult dogs and two puppies, i Boyer said he is pleased that Gonzales is now comply mg w ith the city ordinance. “Well, I can't say I was entirely satisfied when there is evidence of a violation.'' Boyer said. "But the main thing here is compliance with the ordinance, both ordinances. “And my understanding is that she is now in compliance with the ordinance about having no more than four dogs. That's my chief objective."
