He was the fifth Marylander whose death in the war has been reported in the last four days. Corporal Hulings was a tank commander in a 4th Marine Regiment lank battalion. He was killed at Quang Tri when an enemy shell exploded inside his tank, according to a Defense Department telegram sent to his mother, Mrs. Mary C. Hulings, of 5503 Belle Vista avenue, in the city's Hamilton section. Letter Recalled Corporal Hulings served in the war zone for nearly a year. He arrived in Vietnam March 11, 1966, his mother said last night. Corporal Hulings was considering making a career as a marine, his mother said, but also spoke of becoming a State policeman.
