The rotund, 63-year-old actor lost his long battle with cancer Saturday night. Actress Elsa Lanchester, his wife since 1929, was at his bedside when Laughton died in his sleep. The film and stage star's brother, Frank Laughton, said Sunday funeral arrangements were pending because Miss Lanchester, who had kept up a cheerful front during the long illness, was "taking the death quite hard." Laughton had been fighting Uie losing battle with cancer for nearly a year. He entered Cedars of Lebanon Hospital July 30 but on Nov. 30 was granted his last wisii—to die at home. A fa m i 1 y spokesman said Laughton was "feeling no pair toward tile end. He had been in .? coma for several hours and was resting quietly under sedation before that." Laughton was mourned by his friends as a great talent and a great friend: "Charles was a great grizzly bear and he vainly tried to hide his big, pink plush heart," said actress Agnes Moorehcad when she learned of his death.

"A director couldn't hope to direct a Laughton picture," said Lewis Milestone, director of Laughton in "Jamaica Inn" in 1938. "The best he could hope for was to referee."

The new satellite, dubbed Explorer XVI, sped aloft Sunday from the Wallops Island, Va., test station of the National Aeronautics and Space Ad- minislralion.

PALMER LONDON (AP) — Prime Minister Harold Macmillan left today for talks in the Bahamas with President Kennedy, expressing confidence that "we will find a way through our difficulties" over the Skybolt missile. "At this moment after Cuba," Macmillan told newsmen, "we have to try to make a reassessment of (he position between East and West. Can the position be turned to our advantage? Is there a chance of petting ahead with some of these questions-nuclear tests, disarmament and other matters?"

Macmillan said. Fresh from a Paris conference with French President Charles de Gaulle at which "close agreement" on defense views was announced, Macmillan is to meet with U.S. officials who plainly frown on the development of national nuclear deterrents. While Britain and France have riressrd forward vvilh their nuclear programs, the United Slates has .irged a multi-national type force under the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and a buildup in the non-nuclear side of the Euroi>can military forces. The controversy over the U.S.- developed Skybolt missile, which looms as (he major subject of the Bebamas talks, may bring this debate lo a peak.
