' &«r 6-aoath, globe-girdling tour of the Commonwealth ended in rtptures of welcome. Prom the deck of the royal yacht Britannia as it inched by tJhe Tower of London, the 26-year-old monarch caught sight of her mother aiQOBg *t* yelling crowds on the pier and waved A cheery greeting. Prince Charles and flaxen-haired Prmoess Anne, who joined the ship at Tobnrit, "leaned over the rail alongside the Queen and her husband, the Duke' of Edinburgh, and waved too as tug whistles tooted e welcome home. The Queen photographed the wel- camera trip in- pier. His father pulled ,him back. Prime Minister Churchill, who went aboard last night, joined the royal family on the saluting platform when the ship neared the Tower. He sat on a chair and rested his hands on a walking- stick. Later, he left the yacht at the pier and returned to 10 Downing St., still wearing a. white yachting cap. Queen Mother Elizabeth -and Princess Margaret went aboard the Britannia, stooped and kissed the two children, and then went out of view for a private reunion with com«. to wind up her r«cord of a 50.000-mile tended to strengthen the bonds of j the Queen and Duke, •mpire. Millions of Britons •warmed cliffs and banks along *« River Thames to watch the Britannia's 50-mile trip to London from the sea. ...

Hundreds jam- mi&g bridges along the route were •usable to see. But they joined in wild cheering. Children waved Union Jacks and shouted with their parents "aren't they lovely." Queen Elizabeth, who lost weight during ttie trip and had a work- worn look, stood on the saluting pl*%fc#m above the Britannia's bridge for 2 hours-and 20 minutes, wi*fe her husband at her side, during Hie royal yacht's 12-knot progress up the Thames.

Mundt said that while the subcommittee could issue subpoenas for those who attended the Justice Department conference, he thinks there is a legal question whether any of them can be compelled to tell what went.on. Wouldn't Ask What Ike Said He said that if any pf them were acting "in their capacity as advisers to the President" he doubts that a congressional committee could cross over into the executive field and extract information about their policy discussions. McClellan agreed to some extent with this, saying that he "wouldn't ask them to say what the President told them." With the conference issue set aside until Monday, John Adams underwent a grilling on the stand yesterday that led Mundt to a final conclusion that . neither he nor Stevens had proved any charges against Carr up to March 12. That was the date on which memoranda from the McCarthy investigating committee's files were released, bearing 1 charges against Adams and Stevens. Carr signed several of these and Adams said that made him "reevaluate" instances of the past in "which he said at the time he hadn't believed Carr was exerting undue pressure to get favors for Schine. Observing he had the feeling Carr was acting as an agent for Conn, Adams said: "It is wrong for an agent to transmit threats. Carr's memoranda are patently false, to my knowledge." Mundt said this indicated the Army was making "new charges" against Carr, since the memoranda weren't covered in its formal cmoplaint to the committee. While Mundt said it was permissible for either side to bring in new charges, he told Adams as to the old chargec: "I don't think the Army should take the position that Mr. Carr is a crook or that he did anything improper without our being told what he did tiiat was improper."
