FDIC CHIEF HURT IN RIDING MISHAP

The chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. was in satisfactory condition at a Santa Fe hospital today after being injured in a horse-riding accident at his ranch near the capital city.

William Seidman's Washington, D.C., office said he underwent surgery late Wednesday to repair a separated pelvis and that his doctors reported the surgery was successful.

A nursing supervisor at St. Vincent Hospital would not release any information other than Seidman's condition.

Seidman has said he plans to retire after June 30 from his twin jobs as head of the FDIC and chairman of the Resolution Trust Corp., the agency created by Congress to rescue the savings and loan industry.
