The Russians arrived at ; Woods Hole Monday aboard the '. 167-foot Soviet research vessel Albatros. She has a crew of 25. ".In announcing the cruise yesterday, Dr. Robert L. Edwards said this was the first example 1 of United States-Soviet co-opera-: tion in the study of fish conservation. ' Dr. Edwards, assistant di-' rector of the Bureau of Com- mercial Fisheries Biological Laboratory at Woods Hole, said ; the first cruise will start next week, probably Monday. ;. The Soviet Albatros and the American research ship Al- batross IV will spend 5 to 7 days r sampling plankton in the ocean ." off New England. Parkway To ReopenDisputed Access Road r D. LOUIS TONTI Paramus Garden State Parkway Interchange 166, non-operative for 6 months, will become functional again in the near future according to Parkway authorities. D. Louis Tonti, executive director of the Parkway, said the reopening of the interchange at the Washington Township-Paramus border is contemplated after extensive traffic and ensineering studies of the area. Tonti said yesterday that the reopening is supported by strong legal and scientific grounds, although municipal officials have threatened to take legal measures to halt the move. He said he would notify Mayor Charles E. Reid (R.) today of the opening date and the plans to be taken to insure the safety of the disputed exit onto Highland Avenue and the entrance from Pascack Road. The interchange has been closed since the middle of February, when the East I Ridge wood Avenue entrance and lexit was opened, a closing ! municipal officials thought was j permanent. Tonti, however, ! claims the move was tempora-jry. j He said there were no financial considerations to the decision to reopen the interchange. "The convenience of the motoring public is our only concern," Tonti said. Washington Township officials I have been outspoken in their i desire to have the interchange reopened. Tonti said he estimated the interchange would be of great convenience to approximately 200 motorists a day, from Washington Township to Park Ridge. The Parkway traffic consultants have recommended that no left turns be permitted from Pascack Road to the Parkway entrance and that other minor alterations be made to improve ' visibility at the intersection of j the entrance and exit with local ! sreets. Tonti says that in some cases adequate safety can be provided by trimming hedges and trees at the intersections. Tonti said he held up the decision to reopen the interchange earlier in the year after Reid and Councilman Cliflord G. Steele (D.), chairman of the police committee, protested vehemently. The Borough at that time threatened to put up its own barricades if the Parkway removed theirs. Try Again, Won't You?

U ' W f) ';: J 4 - - i 'T. i J : ... : I v s WAITING TO GO HOME Despite increases in population in suburban areas, the number of commuters using buses has remained constant since 1954. Lines seem longer to riders. Industry Can't Get Workers Due To Transportation Lag The high cost of real estate within cities and the need for keeping wages down has led many industries to relocate in the suburbs. New factory design in many instances calls for spread out, single-story plants and the only place industry can find the land is in the suburbs the farther out generally the cheaper. As a result, industry is moving greater distances from the central cities such as New York, Paterson, Newark, and Jersey City. But with this industrial breakout has come a problem the lack of a low-salaried labor market. Rockland County, northern Bergen County, and the outer reaches of Passaic offer ideal locations for these land-consuming new plants and warehouses. But the workers needed to staff them cannot afford to build near them, nor can they1 afford the high rents for existing houses and apartments. Workers Scarce In the southern part of Bergen County, for example, there has been an industrial expansion almost unparalleled in the area, yet industry there is finding it hard to get unskilled and semi-skilled workers. The reason lack of adequate public transportation to the area from the surrounding older cities which house these workers. A recent Bergen County Chamber of Commerce survey reported of the estimated 4,000 workers in South Bergen, more than half said they would prefer bus service to their jobs if it were available. These workers, according to a Chamber spokesman, now rely primarily on car pools, and if the driver is sick one day, five workers are absent. In the northern part of Bergen County and in Rockland, the same problem exists. Rockland Coaches Inc (Red and Tan Lines) for a numoer of years has been running special bus service to accommodate plants in Northvale, Montvalc. River Vale, and parts of Rockland County. These buses, which leave the George Wash-inton Bridge Bus terminal in the morning, travel over conventional routes, with the exception of making special detours to serve the factories. Federal Subsidies In yet another development springing from the shift of industry to the suburbs, the federal government has become involved in mass transportation as a means of combating poverty. In Nassau and Suffolk Counties, New York, a $2 million grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development is experimenting with a bus subsidy to get residents of poverty-stricken areas to jobs in these counties. It's an attempt to get suburban bus service to connect high-density populations in economically depressed areas with new jobs, says J. Douglas Carroll, executive director of the Tri-State Transportation Commission, which is aiding in the demonstration project, In addition, New York State, Nassau and Suffolk are putting up $222,000 of State and County money for the project. The aim of the project is to determine if sufficient mass transportation can solve the problems of economically depressed areas and satisfy industry's need for semi-and unskilled workers. Operating Costs Fares are at a going rate, according to Carroll, but subsidy is needed because present revenues are not meeting operating costs. The bus service, which began May 15, is over conventional routes, but has not been in operation long enough to decide whether it will get enough passengers to be self-supporting. "The real issue behind all of this," says Carroll, "is that if you have unemployment and jobs available, is there a government responsibility to get these people to work; whether the employer should supply wages adequate enough for transportation, or should the employer provide direct bus service? "Second, there is the question of assisting persons of uniquely low income. The question is, 'Can it be done best by giving them the money (carfare) or transportation?' " Inadequate mass transportation also is an important factor when considering some of the social and civic problems resulting from areas of high unemployment. According to a study, In the Watts area of Los Angeles, the unemployed find it hard to get jobs because of inadequate bus service. While more than half ol the unemployed do not have cars, they are forced to look outside the South Central area for employment, and In most cases must rely on upblic transportation for mobility. A 22-mile trip, for example, to Watts from the General Motors plant in Van Nuys in the afternoon, according to a survey, took 2 hours and 12 minutes, and an over-all round-trip took 4 hours and 45 minutes at a cost of $1.76. After a number of studies, the survey concluded, "If a man must pay $10 per week and spend nearly 4 hours daily commuting, this can react in such a way as to discourage those looking for employment "It is easy to understand how and why a frustrated worker could allow transportation difficulties to interfere with employment opportunities." E. J. F. Park-Aiid-Ride Soon To Be A Reality from Pqge!A1 ,'. Eugene Walsh and the alterna tive of asking the railroad to resume commuter service on the line will be considered. The park-and-ride idea is not a new one; it has been used successfully in other areas and was considered several years ago for Bergen County, only to be shelved. However, Republican Freehol der candidate William D. McDowell pulled the proposal from the shelf in February, citing Oradell and Park Ridge as good possible sites, and the idea was incorporated as a plank in his party's platform this year. This stirred renewed interest in the idea, and Freeholder Eugene Walsh (D.), the liaison to the Transportation Board, WiniliYop Hopes Rocky Will Run Asheville, N. C (UPI)-Gov- ernor Winthrop Rockefeller of Arkansas has made his strongest statement yet in support of his brother, Nelson, for the Republican Presidential nomination. At a news conference yesterday at the Southern Governors' Conference, the Arkansas Governor was asked whether he thinks Governor Nelson Rockefeller of New York is serious about staying out of the Presidential race. "Now that I've become a politician too, I remind you that women and politicians have the right to change their minds. I hope he decides to enter the race. Noting that he expects to he a favorite-son candidate himself, Winlhrop said, "If the Governor of Arkansas is not the nominee, I would without reservation support the Governor from New York." Previously, the Arkansas Governor had declined to name a favorite for the G. O. P. nomination because of his own favorite-son candidacy, hut he had taken every opportunity to mention his brother's experience and qualifications. has pushed it within the unit's work in recent months. Blasted by the unofficial Bergen County Transit Committee, the park-and-ride proposal was delayed through the summer by one major question, according to Tilley: would the Erie Lackawanna continue service on the rail line through Oradell? When the Erie signed a 5-ycar agreement with the Stale Department of Transportation which will bring it $80-million in aid in return for continued commuter service last month, the way was cleared for action on the park-and-ride lot, Tilley said. According to Walsh, plans and specifications for the project should be ready within a few months. He said, however, that the Freeholders will seek to gain some federal aid in financing the project and noted that federal specifications are stringent. The Freeholders appropriated $40,000 for the lot earlier this year, but Walsh indicated that more funds may be needed because of rising construction prices. These funds could be obtained from federal sources, he indicated. On the other rail linn under discussion the West Shore Tilley said that the Board has dropped as unsafe all consideration of the plan to pave the rail line and run express buses to New York along it, a proposal revived earlier this year by G. O. P. Freeholder candidate Benjamin Walcnczyk. The Board's planning commit tee will consider the two other proposals this month and offer a final recommendation to be passed on to the State at the Board's October meeting. These tvro possibilities are a request to the New York Central to resume commuter service on the line and the Democratic proposal first advanced by Walsh to equip certain buses with special flanged wheels which would permit them to run either on the railroad tracks or on ordinary pavement. The cost of the autorail program is estimated between $2.15 million and $4.85 million, depending on the distance traveled by buses along the rails. On the bus routes to Newark, Tilley said the Board will ask Public Service Co-ordinated Transport Company to increase the number of buses on its 104 route. He noted that the 104 buse which speed passengers between Newark and Bergen towns from Hackensack southward along the Route 21 expressway, are now available only at peak traffic hours. Shoppers heading for downtown Newark must ride the local 102 buses, which wend their slow way through back streets and add 20 minutes to the trip, Tilley said. He said the Board will ask the bus company to increase its 104 service, particularly during the midday hours when shoppers would be most inclined to ride. am f , t APPOINTED DIRECTOR Richard C.
