TOKYO (ff) — The undertaking business is dead in Thailand so seven Japanese technicians are going there to breathe a little life into it. The Japan New:, said today the seven will supervise the assembly of a Japanese-made crematorium which Thiland undertakers bought. But the Japanese are stumped by a request for a "mobile crematorium."

(A — A long-stemmed beauty from California, in the crown and robes of a queen, embarks today on a yearlong whirlwind tour as the 1955 Miss America. Nineteen-year-old Lee Ann Meriwether of San Francisco, who wants to be an actress and says there's no special boy friend in her life right now, is modest about her figure. But the pageant judges, who selected her from among 49 other charmers Saturday night, were more enthusiastic over Lee's rnea- urements — which shape up this way: Bust 34^, waist 22 and Former Nazi Official Said Near Death HAMBURG, Germany (£>) — Former Nazi Foreign Minister Konstantin von Neurath was reported Hear death today in West Berlin's Sandau Prison.

In her flrst interview with newsmen yesterday, Lee confided that she didn't think she'd give Marilyn. Monroe much competition and that the new "flat" look by Dior "came just in time to save me." As for romance, Lee said "there's no one special" and that she only had "some very good friends." Across the world, in Tokyo, one of her "good friends," Army Pvt. John R. Riveroll of San Jose, Calif., hooted with* excitement when he heard that Lee won the Miss America title. Riveroll said he was the "only guy she went steady with," that they weren't engaged, but that he was "working on it." Lee's mother, Mrs. Ethel Meriwether, said Riveroll was just "a very nice friend, but there's certainly no engagement." Lee, sunburned and stately, wept freely as she donned the Miss America robe and crown before a national television audience and a Convention Hall crowd of 15,000 Saturday night. One of her first thoughts was of her late father, Gregg Meriwether, who died last July. In a tearful speech of thanks, Lee glanced toward the high ceiling of the hall and said quietly: "Daddy, I hope you know and I hope you're proud." She said her father "wanted me to go to Stanford and be an actress." But there wasn't enough money for Stanford, so Lee went to the City College of San Francisco. Money now won't pose too much of a problem, for Lee will receive about $40,000 in public appearance fees, in addition to a new car, furs, jewelry and other prizes. All told, Lee's winnings total almost $60,000. Lee left last night for a two- week stay in New York, where she'll make a round of appearances. Then she'll be off to South America for 15 days.
