WAJ Still Huffin' NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - Two English journalists are appai- ently making some headway in their efforts to row across the Atlantic in a 15-foot rowboat. David Johnstonc, 34, and John Hoare, 29, were paid an unexpected visit Thursday and found out they had advanced 98 miles toward England since departing Virginia Beach May 21. The radar of the submarine Cutlass spotted the rowboat named Puffin at a distance of about nine miles, prompting Lt. Commander Lewis B. Sykes tq order his men to maneuver the sub to the rowboat's side. Asked if they needed assistance, Hoare and Johnstone replied they were doing fine and had every intention of continuing with their venture. Sykes told the pair they were 98 miles east-southeast of Cape [Henry — a progress of 64 miles since they were last seen Saturday night. ] At that time the freighter i American Tide reported the two jwere 32 miles east-northeast of ;Capt Charles. Sykes explained ithat a brisk northeast wind was responsible for pushing the Puffin southward from her last reported position. | Johnstone indicated he. was ! undisturbed by the southward (drift. • i The two had hoped to make the journey to St. Ives, England •in 50 days by averaging 60 miles ^per day. Adverse winds during | the early part of the trip has ikept their, average down to eight Imiles a day. Over the past jdays, however, Hoare and John- istone had upped their average ;to better than 14 miles per day.

Negroes Need More Skilled Employment WASHINGTON (AP) - The Labor Department says Negroes gained substantial ground in employment the past 10 years, but stand to lose most of it by 1975 unless they win a bigger share of white collar and skilled jobs. Employment of Negroes and other nonwhites increased from 6.4 million to 7.7 million since 1955 — a much faster rate of growth than for white workers, said a report in the Monthly Labor Review. This brought the ratio of nonwhite workers to total employment from 10.2 per cent in 1955 to 10.7 per cent in 1965, it said. "Nevertheless nonwhite work- Reluctant Dragon Turns Shy Again By JAMES MARLOW AP News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) - Pennsylvania's Gov. William W. Scranton gives no reason for his decision never to run for public office again—including the presidency—but perhaps it is because he is not "stirred up.!' This was the reason he gave in 1964 for not seeking the Republican presidential nomination, which he later tried for after changing his mind. But he sounds more positive now than when moderate Republicans teamed up behind him in an attempt to keep Barry Goldwater from the nomination. It's doubtful his chances in 1968 would be better than in 1964. He was the reluctant dragon of Republican politics that year when New York's Gov. Nelson A Rockefeller was the only Republican who really put up a fight to try to stop Goldwater. *" * * When Rockefeller failed, Scranton had to be practically pushed into opposing Goldwater, and then he got massacred. :he presidency, the Senate, or Congress in "1968 or ever." This was a lot more emphetic than in 1964 when his dilly-dallying used up time and in the end made it impossible for him to be a real contender against Goldwater. He was never more than a shadow contender. was saying a candidate for president to be effective must be "real stirred up about the issues." He said he wasn't stirred up enough to be a good candidate although he would accept a draft. By early June he dropped Scranton, a millionaire, says I men ti on of the draft, said he he doesn't know what he will do j wou i(} b e available for the nomi- and enforcing standards. Gov.

Hansen of Wyoming, head of the delegation, said the purpose of the meeting was "ta «e how the states can most effectively cooperate with the federal government in cutting fatalities on the naion's highways. "Regardless of what legislation is enacted," Hansen said in an interview, "the states are going to be called upon to play a major role in enforcement. You can legislate what might go into • new car, but state inspectors are necessary to see that standard* are maintained." Hansen also said "the states have had a good deal of experience that ought to be useful" in establishment of safety standards. . The delegation meets in separate .sessions with Commerce department officials in the morning and four congressional committee chairmen in the afternoon. Between the two meetings, the governors are expected to the natinoal picture came 11 days behind a similar one by Rockefeller who said he was out of the presidential riming "for ver." In the past Rockefeller, Goldwater and others at one time or another disclaimed any presi- denial desires, only to switch around. This time its sounds final with both Rockefeller and Scranton. The latter said he would not again.run for public office—he can't run to succeed himself as governor—under "any circumstances" and would not run for when he finishes his term as governor. Would he back any other Republican for the presidential nomination two years from now? * * * Again he was typically cautious, saying that if Michigan's Gov. George Romney wants to run "I would give him very thorough consideration." This was a lot less firm than Rockefeller who, in taking himself out of any future presidential consideration, suggested Romney for the nomination. Romney, like Rockefeller this year, is seeking a third term as governor and declined to talk about the presidency, at least 'or the time being. After President Johnson defeated Goldwater in 1964 the latter blamed Rockefeller and Romney for not backing the Goldwater ticket. Scranton, who had denounced Goldwater before the convention, campaigned for him. Some examples of Scranton's reluctance and indecision the last time: In 1963 he said he would accept the nomination if he was drafted. In February, 1964, he have lunch with President Johnson. Hansen heads the delegation as chairmen of the governors conference subcommittee on highway safety. The Senate Commerce Committee already has started closed sessions to draft auto safety legislation, and the House Commerce Committee hopes to begin its sessions in about 10 days.
