King George
Laid to Rest
At Windsor
Tradition Marks
Somber Service
By The Associated Press
Britain committed the body of
King George VI to the dust of the
past yesterday with all the age-
gathered heraldry and traditions
of her enduring monarchy and the
older rites of Christian faith.
Queen Elizabeth II, center of
the hopes of a people who glory
in an earlier Elizabethan age,
sprinkled red earth on the flag-
draped coffin of her father as it
sank from sight through the stone
floor of storied St George's Cha-
pel in Windsor Castle.
SHE WAS tight lipped, but did
not weep. The Queen Mother
Elizabeth, Princess Margaret, the
younger daughter of the King,
and Princess Mary, the King's sis-
ter, also were dry-eyed but tense.
The Archbishop of Canterbury,
the Anglican primate of England,
intoned the prayer, of committal,
"Ashes to ashes, dust to dust," at
2:20 p.m. (9:20 a.m., yesterday,
Ann Arbor time) in the 26-minute
funeral service before the sover-
eigns of seven foreign nations, the
sorrowing relatives and a dis-
tinguished congregation of states-
men, soldiers and household ser-
A million and more silent and
reverent persons had watched
150 white-gaitered sailors haul
the.old grey and green funeral
gun carriage in a magnificent
procession through London's
streets from Westminister Hall,
where the body had lain in state
three days, to grimy Paddington
More thousands doffed their
hats and bowed in dutiful silence
as a second procession wound
from Windsor's railway station
through the crooked, cobbled
streets to the chalky hill sur-
mounted by Windsor's turrets.

ed the colorful procession from a
window of her Marlborough
House. As the coffin passed, she
stood and with one sad gesture
waved a farewell to her son.
Her two surviving sons Ed-
ward, Duke of Windsor, himself
king for 11 months, and the
Duke of Gloucester, turned and
gave her a salute. So did the
16-year-old Duke of Kent, her
grandson, and young Duke of
Edinburgh, husband of the new
Elfzabeth II and the Queen
Widow bowed from the shadows of
their carriage, immediately be-
hind the coffin bearing the glit-
tering crown of more than 3,000
jewels, the orb and the sceptre.
*~ * * .
A TWO-MINUTE silence spread
over Britain, the Commonwealth
and a colonial empire as the buri-
al service started inside St.
George's. The choir sang the
Easter hymn of triumph, "The
strife is o'er, the battle done, now
is the victor's triumph won."

McKinney Tells
Bank Connection
man Frank McKinney of the Dem-
ocratic National Committee said
last night his bank once had a
$120,000 mortgage on a midwest
brewing company which settled
a $636,000 government tax claim
for $4,500 and later won a $35,-
000 refund,
But McKinney denied published
reports that the bank he headed,
the Fidelity Trust Co., of Indian-
apolis, helped finance the pur-
chase of the beer firm, the In-
dianapolis Brewing Company.
THE CASE came to light Thurs-
day when Sen. John J. Williams
(R-Del.) said in a speech on the
Senate floor that the Indianapolis
brewer won a handsome settle-
ment of federal tax claims soon
after former U.S. Tax Commis-
sioner Joseph D. Nunan, Jr., got

brewery, told newsmen he never

Nunan has denied he ever repre-
sented the company and said he
has no recollection of ever seeking

statute bars certain former gov-

leave office, but provides for waiv-

To Far ouk
LONDON- ()-Diplomatic of-
ficials disclosed privately yester-
day that Britain is c6nsidering
recognizing Egypt's King Farouk
I as regent or king of the Anglo-
Egyptian Sudan.
Such status would last only un-
til the Sudanese people get a
chance to settle their own future,
they said.
The million-square mile Sudan,
adjoining Egypt on the south, and
the Suez Canal Zone in the north
are the great issues in the now
quiet dispute between Egypt and
clined to be identified by name,
emphasized that so far the plan
has not been submitted to either.
Egypt or to Sudanese leaders.
Both may be sounded out in the
next week or two if the British
decide \to gQ through with the
plan, the sources said.'
Observers were quick to point
out that the British-Egyptian
dispute over the Canal Zone re-
mains the big immediate prob-
lem dividing the two countries.
If the Sudanese should agree to
Farouk as king or regent, these
observers emphasized, Britain
would be giving away little and
yet would be pleasing most na-
tionalist-minded Egyptians.
Relations between Britain and
Egypt have apparently improved
since Farouk kicked out the ex-
treme Nationalist government of
Premier Mustapha Nahas Pasha
in the wake of the Jan. 26 riots
in Cairo and replaced it with the
government headed by Premier
Aly Maher Pasha.

WASHINGTON -' Rep. Robert
Lee Doughton, 88-year-old chair-

ALTHOUGH no official request
