S. Tuscaloosa for a cruise to un un-' designated destination Mr. Roosc-1 velt did not deny the possibility that he might make contact wilii British or French officials before he disembarked. In a senons mood he maintained the absolute secrecy with which he had surrounded his cruise plans and told reporters that he could not comment on a report that during tne cruise lie may -contact representatives of France, Great Britain or Italy. The president was reminded tint his "no comment" response would inevitably lead to varied interpretations and would intensify the mystery of his cruise. He replied that he could not offer any comment on that possibility. He cautioned reporters, however, not to go so far out on a" limb that they might lie sawed oft. His Intimations of diplomatic Implications in his trip was purely negative but his refusal to dismiss the reports of a possible conference developed despite persistent at- templs of reporters to draw from him a denial or a clear statement Intensifying the mystery Mr Roosevelt said that he would fish only sporadically during the cruise and said it would be fair to assume -that,, he might combine business with his vacation.
