TOKYO, Sept.19, 1931 (UP) -- While silence shrouded the movements of Don Moyle and Cecil Allen, unsuccessful transpacific flyers, tonight, Col. and Mrs. Charles A. Lindbergh were in China and two other American aviators, Clyde Pangborn and Hugh Herdon jr., were contemplating a non-stop flight from Tokyo to Seattle.
Moyle and Allen apparently were still at Cape Navarin where they were taken by a Russian ship after being forced down on an uninhabited island. They landed while en route from Tokyo to Seattle when their fuel supply gave out.
Nothing has been heard from them in 36 hours. The last word received was that their plane had been refueled and that they were preparing to hop off for Nome and Seattle.
Colonel and Mrs. Lindbergh were in Nanking tonight after a quick flight from Fukuoka, Japan. They planned to remain there three or four days before continuing their vacation tour which may take them back to the United States by way of Europe.
Pangborn and Herdon, earlier today, were granted a permit by Japanese authorities to attempt a non-stop Seattle flight. The permit includes restrictions, however, principally that it will be revoked if they do not start by Oct. 15 and that in event of their failure a second permit will not be issued.
The permit was not forthcoming until government officials learned that Moyle and Allen were safe after being missing for 10 days.
Pangborn and Herdon have had trouble with Japanese officials since they landed here from Siberia several weeks ago after an unsuccessful attempt to fly around the world.
