Mayflower's Sailing Dafre Ignored by U.S. Tourists SCIiOOIlY, England (AP) This village, populalion 315, was moaning loday that after spend- ing lo atlract American tourists here this summer, only 40 have shown up. Pilgrim William Brcwslcr formed his band of Mayflower separatists in Sironby, and claborale plans were made lo welcome Americans on the aVllh anniversary of Inc May- flower's tailing lo America.

Leslie Nicholson, chair- man of (he village's Mayflower commillec said: "I guess Ihe Americans think il rains loo much in England in spring and early summer. They may be coming lalcr, bill seems out of the question." All through the winter, Scroo- by villagers held church hall functions lo raise I heir May- flower fund. The money went to scl np a souvenir shop, an exhi- bition of relics of Brewslcr's era and for open air allraclions.
