    Background: THE HIGHEST VOLCANIC MOUNTAIN IN BALI "GUNUNG AGUNG" - DORMANT FOR CENTURIES - ERUPTS AND DARKENS THE ENTIRE CHINESE SKY. ITS ASHES FELL O EAST JAVA TOWNS NEARLY TWO HUNDRED MILES AWAY.

    EARTH TREMORS WERE FIRST FELT IN THE SOUTH EAST COAST OF BALI ON FEBRUARY 17. SMOKE TRICKLED OUT OF THE CRATER TWO DAYS LATER AND THE VOLCANIC ACTIVITY OF THE 10,000-FOOT MOUNTAIN INCREASED AS THE DAYS WENT BY.

    THE VILLAGERS ON THE SLOPE, AND NEARBY THE "MAJESTIC MOUNTAIN" WATCHED THE ERUPTION WITH SOME ANXIETY BUT MOVED OFF ONLY SLOWLY. NO MAJOR DAMAGED WAS REPORTED, AS THE ERUPTION WAS MOSTLY OF SMOKE AND ASHES.

    ANTI-CHOLERA AND OTHER VACCINES HAD BEEN ORDERED FOR THE 100,000 PEOPLE OF BALI AFTER FIRST REPORTS OF MASSIVE DESTRUCTION BY MOLTEN LAVA. BUT THE INDONESIAN HEALTH MINISTRY SAID YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) THAT THERE HAD BEEN NO LOSS OF LIFE REPORTED. THE FIRST REPORTS HAD SPOKEN OF AT LEAST TEN PEOPLE KILLED AND THOUSANDS MADE HOMELESS.

    (THE INDONESIAN ARCHIPELAGO OF NEARLY 3,000 ISLANDS HAS HUNDREDS OF VOLCANO AND HOT SPRINGS.)
