Texas emergency preparedness workers were keeping a watchful eye on developments as the Gulf Coast’s latest storm of thc hurricane season churned some 400 miles south- southwest of Ncw Orleans. “We’ve had our Emergency Operation Center open since yesterday morning and we’ll keep it open through tonight,” Gary Stone, emergency spokesman for the City of Galveston, said Saturday. Workers and volunteers from the American Red Cross, die U.S. Coast Guard, the Galveston Police Department, the Galveston Fire Department and others manned phones and made arrangements for shelters in case they became necessary. Meanwhile, NWS meteorologists noted the storm had sustained winds of 60 mph — just IO mph shy of hurricane strength, but continued on its slow, north-northeasterly path with unfavorable conditions for strengthening. “We’ve been watching it, and it has S«e STORM, Peg* 2A East Germany agrees to allow 1,000 to migrate from Poland WARSAW, Poland (AP) — About 1,000 East Germans in Poland will be free to leave by plane or ship for West Germany or any other country, it was announced Saturday in the latest concession by East Berlin to the westward migration of its citizens.

Smiling young refugees being housed at a church seminary in Tar-chomin, just outside Warsaw, said they were told Saturday night by a West German diplomat that transport Sm REFUGEES, Pag* 2ARemember when we played with these?
