Eisenhower np- penrs to have thawed some more. Tom Gavin, who accompanied Truman to the funeral of President John F. Kennedy in Washington, tolls about a half-hour meeting between the two after services. Gavin, long-time friend of Truman, is n former city councilman in Kansas City. He now is a public rclntions counselor. Truman and Eisenhower rode together in the funeral procession. Gavin said Truman and his daughter, Mrs. Clifton Daniel, invited Eisenhower and his wife to Blair House for some refreshments. Also there wore Gens. Harry Vaughan, Neil Marra, Clement.

Truman Library in Independence, Mo., and was given a personally conducted tour by the Missourian. Gavin said after the talking began, Eisenhower "stood up and carried his chair down and sal next, to Mr. Truman." Gavin said they talked for about 30 minutes, after which (lie two shook hands — "You could see the warmth in their eyes when they did." Gavin said he didn't hear much of what Mrs. Eisenhower and Mrs. Daniel wore talking about "Because I was paying attention to the men." In New York City, Mrs. Daniel said that she and her father received a phone call on Sun day from the Eisenhower home at Gettysburg. The caller asked if President Truman and Mrs Daniel would care to ride with (be Eisenhowers to the funeral the next day. Word was sent back that they would. Mrs. Truman did not come to Washington because she was ro> covering from influenza and did not. feel up to the trip. NO COMPLAINTS. KOB A CHANGE FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Highway Department officials got a pleasant surprise when they notified Philip Frank they wanted some of his farm for a right of way.

I'm willing and anxious to do anything | to get them paved." Three More Setbacks For Conservatives LONDON (AP)—Three morn electoral setbacks dimmed Prime Minister Sir Alec Douglas-Home's political prestige today, dousing rumors that lie might risk n spring general election. Balloting to fill House of Commons vacancies in London, Manchester and Sudbury all showed a slump in Conservative support sharp enough to give the opposition Labor party a landslide vic­ tory in any national poll held anytime soon. In the London and Manchester districts, the Conservative share of the vote was down 10 per cent compared with the 19X1 general election. In Sudbury it dropped 4 per cent. However, the Conservatives retained the seats in London's St. Marylebonc district and Sudbury. Tho Laboritcs kept the seat in Manchester's Openshaw district. Tho results quickly disposed of talk that the new prime minister was planning to go to the electorate in March. Now the consensus was that his government must hold on perhaps until next fall, hoping its chances would revive. The election must bo held by Nov. 5. The voting brought back to the House of Commons the former I^ord Hailsham, now Quintin Hogg. But in winning the safe St. Mnrylobone district for the Conservatives, he shed more than 10,000 votes from the party's 1959 showing. NOT TOO HELPFUL WICHITA, Kan.

Negro author Louis Lomax, who spent a week last month in East Berlin with Robeson, said Friday night, "Robeson is coming home soon and I don't mean just physically." Lomax declined to elaborate. In 1917, Robeson, now 65, was accused by the House Commit­ tee on UnAmerican Activities of supporting Communist front organizations. The U.S. government withdrew the singer's passport in 1950 because ho declined to sign a non-Communist affidavit required by the State Department. The requirement was later knocked out by a Supreme Court decision. Eight years later, on July 11, 1058, Robeson went to London and made his home there until he went behind the Iron Curtain to seek medioal attention.
