Agents hope to learn why the boat was near Alcatraz at such an early hour, and if any craft is unexplain-edly missing from its dock. Checchi's disclosure also points up a score of possibilities on the whereabouts of the escapees. With a boat of that size, they could still be on the high seas, or could have been transported to Mexico, Canada or other ports without being seen. The sighting also gives agents the first known clue on transportation of the convicts to a spot other than Angel Island, where land searches have so far been centered. 200 YARDS AWAY principal objective of the Strike Postponed In Washington, D.C., James espionage" inside the Soviet Reports reaching here stated that. crowds, principally women, gathered to beat on pots and pans while yelling, "We're hungry."
