Bandit Gets $2,000 From Ferndale Bank FERNDALE • (AP)—A bandit escaped with approximately $2,000 from a Detroit Bank & Trust Co.- branch in Ferndale Tuesday, the FBI said. By JACK LYNCH HARRISBURG. Pa. (AP) The year since the Republican National Convention at San Francisco appears to have made no outward change In the attitude of Oov. William W. Scranton toward the presidency. Almost as soon as the tremors of Ms hectic and futile 32-day bid to nead off Barry Goldwater had subsided, the Pennsylvania governor returned to his often- stated position that he has no Interest In becoming president. He has said repeatedly he ran only to give Republican delegates a choice and because no one else In the party seemed willing to prevent a takeover by the conservatives. He says he is interested only in finishing his term as governor of the third largest state. Th term, limited by state constitution to one four-year span, ends in January 1967 and that could be politically convenient for the 1968 presidential race. After all, Scranton Is 48, vigorous, handsome, and identified with the party's liberal wing. Scranton maintains contact with prominent Republicans across the land, erpecially with former President Dwight D. Eisenhower, whose Gettysburg farm is only 30 miles away. Wayne Gets Science Foundation Grant DETROIT (AP)—The National Science Foundation has granted Wayne State University's mathematics department $54,000 to support two years of research. Good Manners Make Friends Bridegrooms: B e honest about job and salary of face the consequences. Over 700 Fight Detroit Blaze DETROIT (AP) — More than 100 firemen fought a fire at a combination bowling alley and' bar in midtown Detroit Tuesday night before bringing it under control. No one was .injured. Fire Chief Glenn Thorn estimated damage at $175,000. Thorn said cause of the blaze was not immediately determined, adding that the building, whose interior was destroyed, had been closed for about two months. State Democrats, at"' least, don't believe Scrarton's disclaimers. They say everything Scranton does is done to further "presidential ambitions." Combined with this is Scranton's ability to get things done despite Democratic control of the State House ot Representatives. He recently outmanexl- vered Democrats when they tried to raise his spending proposals by more than $31 million. Pennsylvania, which has had financial problems for almost two decades, piled up a record $102.7-million surplus this year. That certainly doesn't hurt Scranton, whether the excess resulted from the general economic boom, as Democrats claim, or from a combination of good times and good administration, as Republicans aver. Legislatively, Scranton has developed considerable attention to urban areas, proposing'« department of urban affairs and sharply increasing state aid for mass transit. A hoped-for side effect 'of this is renewal of Republican strength in the Democratic- dominated big cities. Scranton continues to make himself available for speeches. He'speaks outside the state'Oh an average of better than twice monthly. At home, Scranton has lent considerable weight to party unity efforts through the Republican Coordinating Council. And although he campaigned lor Goldwater last fall,. he condemned efforts by Goldwater and others in setting' up separate party organizations. u*-' For himself, Scnnton professes no plans beyond the last 18 months ~of his governorship, but it is difficult to rule him out^a's a presidential prospect.
