2,000 Cheer Gagarin in London Farewell um, BO*, e.iif, sunaw. July ». mi INDEPENDENT-PRESS-TELEGRAM--A-7 . MOSCOW (UPI) -- Soviet spaceman Yuri Gagarin returned to Moscow Saturday from London where he re-| ceived a tumultuous welcome five days ago and an even hiore tumultuous sendoff Saturday morning. ! Asked at the airport here ·what he liked most about his 'five-day visit to Britain, the 'nir force major replied: "The people." I For Gagarin, it was a re- Jturn to earth after a hectic nound of life in London which 'included a luncheon with Queen Elizabeth, a visit with Prime Minister Harold Mac millan, a televised press con ferenco and a daily battl with the massive crowds tha ; cheered him wherever hi went. t * * * mally reserved Britons to the short, smiling cosmonaut. · A screaming mob of 2,000 Londoners blocked the drive- vay of the Soviet Embassy nd broke through police bar iers to try to touch the firsl man into space. It took Gagarin nine min-] utes to cover the first six 'eel of his trip to the airport. He inched his way through the cheering mob to the official car for four minutes and the motorcycle escort worked [or five minutes more to reach the embassy gates two yards away. * * * * STREET TRAFFIC halted as enthusiastic men, women and children spotted the spaceman in his limousine Walker's White Sale and ran alongside for a better TODAY'S sendoff was typi diamonds YOUR DIAMOND RING /CHECKED /CLEANED ,, .:;i e diunons ms fine jewelry tiept street jloor I July Clearance All Models Neeelii-Eliia Super Automatic Machines savings up to Si 00 on many models examplei Elna Automatic Portable, rcg. 2i9.00..._.147.50 Nccchi Automatic, reg. 299.00 ----------- ..... 1RO.OO Nccchi Esperia, reg. 139.00 ..... _.. ........... -- 711.05 repairs -- rentals -- supplies your Neccbi-Elna Authorized Dealer . center third floor Walker's Special^ Discount Prices on Famous Make Matched Aeroplane Luggage xow · New Long Bound Staling teriors · All Plywood Frames O'Night Cases Weekend Cases -------- ............ .
