The funeral cortege is scheduled to proceed. through the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, hot far from Ebbets Field, the park where Robinson attracted an army of fans.

He will be laid to rest at Cypress Hills cemetery following services at Riverside Memorial Church. Robinson's body was placed on public view for eight hours Thursday before a long, unbroken line of mourners, mostly elderly persons. "He was the first black man to break the color line in major league baseball," said an elderly woman, "and we should be very proud of him." There were no flowers on the gray-blue metal coffin and none of the mourners was allowed to touch the bier. A middle-aged man tried to put a red carnation on the coffin, but was dissuaded by an attendant. Today, Robinson will be laid to rest before dozens of former teammates, old friends and public officials including Sargeant Shriyer, the Democratic Party candidate for Vice-President in the November Many of Robinson's teammates on those fine Dodger teams will be pallbearers, and honorary pallbearers.

Nearly blinded by diabetes, the legen- dadry player had trouble fulfilling an autograph request. When'a 10-year-old boy asked him to sign baseball, Robinson said "Are there other signatures on it? I don't want to write over somebody's name and I can't see." A sports writer took Robinson's hand and placed it over an open space on the baseball, but Robinson nevertheless scribbled over other names "Did I do it all risht" i inson asked, Rob- "Yes, fine, Jackie," he was Robinson 'i career was filled with, bitter-sweet memories as well.

One of Robinson's reasons for wanting out of New York was the cold, so a report early this week that the Midwest had snow was hardly welcome. "I'm used to playing in the cold." he says, "but I don't like it." As for Notre Dame, they were after him when he played that high school bail at lona Prep in bowl New York City.
