Rockefeller, Humphrey Are Prodded By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey among the Democrats and Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York among the Republicans are being prodded : to join the run for the White • House. 1 Humphrey lias made clear -he's ready to run apparently it's just a matter of timing the announcement— while Rockefeller has been less clear on Whether he will actually campaign against former Vice President Richard M. Nixon for the nomination. Rockefeller has left himself open to a draft. Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy, fighting .Sen. Robert F. Kennedy for the Democratic nomination; said in Bloomtngton, Ind., Humphrey should announce now if he plans to campaign in support of U.S. policy in Vietnam—a policy McCarthy opposes. Humphrey addressed a group at the State Department Thursday, on a nonpoiitical matter, saying with a smile he had wanted "an audience this large" to make a certain announcement. "Pd do it right here," Humphrey said— but he didn't. Across town, formation of United Democrats for Humphrey was announced, with former President Harry S. Truman as honorary chairman and Sens. Walter F, Mondale of Minnesota and Fred R. Harris of Oklahoma as national chairmen. Michigan Gov. George Romney met with top Rockefeller strategists in Washington and said that while he Is not committed to supporting Rockefeller, "I would not have been here if I had not been interested in what they had to say." One source said after the meeting that the consensus was Rockefeller "has got to comr out fairly soon and m?.ke a fairly simple statement of candidacy to the end." Rockefeller did not attend the meeting. But lw was in town, addressing the American Society of Newspaper Editors on urban problems— the first of several fitf jor speeches he plans to make around the country. Kennedy campaigned in California, meeting thousands of Mexlcan*Ameripan migra.it farmers in the Fresno area, He also planned visits in Los An. geies, San Francisco and San PJego in preparation for the June 4 primary fight against McCarthy, Polls show Kennedy today's Wkjor League L&idsfS Bv fMS ASSOCIATED PRESS AMtRlCAW LEAGUE BATTING (IS & bats) - Allt« sfl-i, Mini*, ,515; Potro-ielli, B'i:it,, ,440, RUNS - Sims, Cleve,, fl,- R. .talk-soft, Ca r <., 9, RUtfS BATTED IN-Maaien, Wash., 9; Klllebrew, Minn,, 8; W.

By WM. T. McKEOWN NJ-A Boafing Editor "What's (he most popular boatbuilding material'.'" Dave Smith asked. Your guess is probably wrong, too. "Which material makes the easiest boat to carry?" We'd both be right this time with aluminum.' It is also the most popular. More boats were built of the light metal last year than all other types combined, according to Smith, who's paid to keep track of such things. Weekends he's a pleasure boatman on Lake Erie and inland waters around Cleveland. Weekdays he is head ol the Aluminum Association's Marine Committee. So how about fiberglass? More different kinds of boats are made of plastic. Smith said. 170.000 of them last year. But there were 260.000 turned out in aluminum, plus 20,000 in wood and 5.000 of steel. At the recent National Boat Show in New York Citv. 75 per cent of the boats displayed were fiberglass or plastic. 8.7 per cent were aluminum. 8.6 per cent of canvas and rubber, and only 7 per cent of wood. But across the country, said Smith, when you look at the fishing boats and canoes, you start to see where all the aluminum production went. Runabouts of the metal, as fell as John boats, cartoppers. small cruisers, pontoon boats HOPE (ARK) STAR, and houseboats, are also joining the fleet. Aluminum got a bad name with boatmen after World War II and only recently has lived it down. Some postwar operators bought up a lot of surplus aircraft "aluminum and made it into boats. These new craft had a strange reaction to brackish water—they seemed to practically dissolve after a few months'afloat. The word got around fast—sailors who have to swim home tend to talk—and the builders either switched to corrosion-resistant marine aluminum alloy o: 1 got chased out of the business. Many boats now carry an approved sticker from the Aluminum Association. Maintenance usually amounts to little more than hosing a boat down after use. There are fewer aluminum boat manufacturers. Smith said, because you can't set yourself up to whack them but in your back yard like you can with other craft. But the fewer builders are engineered to make more boats. Yet single • copy custom craft are designed for the metal as well, Smith brags. Two of last year's hottest offshore power racers, Mona Lou II and III. were "tin" types. Both were built by Alliance. Ohio, sportsman driver Merrick Lewis who formed Maritime F'rodticts in his home town to turn out big aluminum craft. Both were driven by Odell Lewis of the Kiekhaefer Mercury racing team from Wisconsin. Mona Lou II. with turbine engines, took Long Beach4o-San Francisco and Long Beach-San Diego ocean marathons. Mona Lou IU, an identical 32-footer but with MerCrtiiser outdrives for power, finished first in the Bahamas 500-Miler.

In any event you would not have gone down more than one trick, but the chances are that South would not have stood for the double.
