(/P}—To the Jea roll of drums ahd the If nbtes of bugles sounding "Aux .-ftijJS" (last post), the dead [66ti AstHa niflde her tragic home- tilt .-{&aay- to the country which jlfowh td love her. :6d With white flowers and --r-' by six large candles, the iple^ coffin was placed in the - - chapel (dhapelle Ardente). ~ial train that boi-e the Switzerland as it drew into the downtown Oare mi i Nora station at 8:40 a. m. (1:40 central standard time) found a city in deep mourning. • . Sorrowing crowds wept opsnly in the streets and behind them doors were draped with black crepe and shop windows were shuttered. A deathlike hush .fell over the crowd outside the station as the queen's body was lifted from the 'coach in which it made the overnight Journey from Lucerne. Sobs from the bareheaded crowd broke the deep silence as attendants placed the casket in the motor hearse outside the somberly drnpsd station and stepped back to await the start of the drive to the palace. Then drums, hurig with heavy black velvet, began the funeral roll, and the notes from the trumpets of fl band of army burglers rang out strangely and rh»: ; ly in the usually bustling square facing the station. The futiernl will be next Tuesday. TCing Leopold left the train at Gare Du Luxembourg, before it arrived at the downtown station, and drove to the palace in an, automobile to wait his queen's body. Governmental and city dignitaries lode in six automobiles which moved behind the hearse as the sad procession to the palace began. Troops lined each side of the street as the cortsgo wound its way slowly up Roule,;rde Du Jardin Bontanique ar-d tflnied tnte Htoe ftbyftle, whteH led straight to the gates of the 1 Chttdreft Unaware Church bells tolled throughout the city. Hundreds of persons who pack 1 ed the sidewalks, crossed themselves and whispered softly-worded pray-., ers as the body of the queen in & coffin ccvered with a wreath 'Of roses passed along. Tiny children clutched mothers' hands watching the mournful drama. Queen Astrid's three chil- dien played gaily in a garden in one of the royal villas, unaware that their mother never would return to them. King Leopold was sad-eyed and fatigued from a troubled day and a sleepless night. Before he left the train accompanied by his secretary, Baron Capelle, he bandaged his own injuries. In the palace as he waited the arrival cf the corteg3 he sat with bowed head, surrounded by his favorite court officials. The funeral paity halted briefly outside the palace, then the coffin Was carried up the'''gran* staircase to the flower-banked Orrapelle Ardente on the floor which only a few days before rang With the hftpfry laughter of the 29-year-old mother tmd her three children. Thousands crowded outside the ..alane <;->H>s. waitinp lor the hoped- for word that they soon would be allowed to make their slew way to the chapel to pay their last respects to their beloved queen. The grief of the huge crowd was doubt/ the gi'eater because the chapel where Queen Astrid's body was tenderlv placeqVwas where King Albert, victim of another accident, lay in state less than 18 months ago. Goes To Bier Black hangings covered the walls of the tiny chapel and white dahlias and roses, among Queen Astrid's favorite flowers, banked the coffin right and left. For a short time, while some court officials and a few others were admitted to the chapel, King Leopold waited in anothsr room of the palace. Then when the others had he entered the room alone and knelt beside, the Wet. . Premier Paul Van Zeelarid.-rjale and visibly moved, and other ministers accompanied the funeral train fiom Arlbn, France. Prince Charles, Leopold's brother, was absent from Brussels. Queen Mother Elisabeth, and the king's sister, MaHft Jose, crown princess of Italy, were, 6Sj5efcted from Naples today.

After the king had remained for several minutes praying and sobbing quietly beside the bier, he retired and cabinet members and per-. sens of the court were admitted. i At midday, the crowd outside the palace was permitted to file through the chapel.
