Told as Five Seamen Saved SAN DIEGO June 30 — A wife’s curious hunch that all was not well aboard a fishing boat three weeks before the receipt of news that it was wrecked was being told here today This developed as fragmentary radio messages to the U S Coast Guard station told how five shipwrecked fishermen lived for six weeks on bleak Clipperton Island off Mexico Mrs Walter Richards wife of the engineer aboard the Thistle the wrecked boat said she "had a feeling about three weeks ago that something was wrong”- even though the craft had not been reported missing The men all of San Pedro were reported uninjured and in condition They were picked up Satui by the fishing oat Normam which was instructed by Navy’s Panama Sea Frontier to take them to Galapagos Island off Ecuador The Navy will bring them home from tjiere They were crew members of the 45-foot fishing boat Thistle out of Terminal Island The craft reportedly smashed up on the rocky Clipperton coast on May 19 Radio messages to the Navy and Coast Guard gave no details of how the men lived while on the island but said only that they managed to keep “in good condition" Clipperton is a five-mile dot in the Pacific well off the regularly traveled shipping lines A settlement was established on the rocky reef-bordered island from 1914 to 1917 but Coast Guard officials believe it has been uninhabited for years Rain was believed to be its only source of fresh water The wrecked fishermen in addition to Richards were identified as Capt William Noble Charles E Warren Gilbert Stethe and Robert Marchele Mrs Richards said she thought none of the crewmen except her husband were married The Thistle was on a nine-week expedition fishing for shark livers for the California Marine Packing Co spokesman for the packing company said the ship must have been blown to Clipperton because its normal cruising range is only some 700 miles out of its home port People's Lobby Slates Author's Talk Tomorrow Mrs Stella Terrill
