NEW YORK - A memorial service will be held today for Stewart Large, 41, a Sea-Land Service Inc. executive killed last week in a car crash. In lieu of flowers, the family is asking that donations be made to a scholarship fund for Mr. Large's two children, Natalie, 5, and Daniel, 21 months.

The memorial service will be held at noon in St. Mark's Episcopal Church, 140 S. Finley Ave., Basking Ridge, N.J., for Mr. Large, New York sales manager for Sea-Land's Atlantic Division.

Scholarship-fund checks may be sent to Brian Lawson of "K" Line at 257 Jackson St., Matawan, N.J. 07747. They should be made payable to William Blair & Co.

Mr. Large was returning home from a birthday party early Saturday when his car went off the highway and hit a guardrail on I-78 in Bridgewater. He worked for Sea-Land for 12 years.

TYPHOON-HIT TANKER

STOPS SPILLING OIL

SEOUL, South Korea - A grounded tanker has virtually stopped spilling oil off South Korea but wind and waves lengthened an oil slick from the vessel to nearly 30 miles, maritime police said Wednesday.

"We estimate about 700 metric tons of fuel oil have leaked from the tanker," a police spokesman said. "But the leakage virtually stopped from fuel tanks and we believe there has been no crude oil spill so far."

The Cyprus-registered oil tanker Sea Prince was laden with about 83,000 metric tons of crude oil and about 1,400 metric tons of bunker-C fuel oil when it ran aground after being hit Sunday by Typhoon Faye.
