Xew«, FrHierkk. M*., T««J*j% July 2*. M4» Thousands Pay Final Tribute To Pershing Washington. July 19 f--Jeo- eral John J. Pershing was laid to rest today oa tfa* summit of a tree- shrouded slope, surrouaded by the graves of men he commanded from the jungles of th* Philippines '-the borders of imperial Germany. A reverent hush fell over the generals, she cadets and the buck privates standing at attention io Arlington National Cemetery zs the Army's chief of chaplains. Maj. Gea. Luther D. Miller, intoned the last words: "The msrch o: another is ended, his battles are ail fought sad all won. and he lies down to rest while awanmg the bugle's call." It was the end cf the trail fur -Black Jack" Pershiag. i\ho died last Thursday at the age of 87, heavy with honors and alread something of a gray ieger.d to a vo'jnger generation whicn does not thrill to the names of BeJleau Wood and Chateau-Th:err. Truman Attends And President Truman joined with heads of the armed forces ::i a vast and impressive tribute to the old general, who led the first American Expeditionary Force to victory- in the First World War. Somewhere near half a million people lined the streets o: vVasn- ington to see Pcrshing's coffin drawn by six perfectly matched gray horses" through a dov. npour of raia from the Nation's Capitol to the peaceful cemetery across the Potomac. The funeral cortege 'AJ~ a mile long. To the throb of iiiuiTled drums and the strains of haunting marches, it marched the whole four and oae^third raiics while a flight of eight F-80 jet fighters roared overhead--a s i g h t undreamed of when John J. Pershing was born in 1860. The services were brief and simple. Then came the burial, \\ith the coSSn borne through a double row of honorary pallbearers, in the now-steaming heat, to its grassy resting place within sight of the glistening domes and the white Washington's-monu.nent shaft ;f the c?pital. ".. .Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust ..." Chaplain Miller prayed. In the -direction of the setting sun.' West Point cadets in gleaming summer white stood rigid at attention. To the east, enlisted men and more cadets stood equally straight. General Dwight D. Eisenhcwcr, Secretary of State George C. Marshall and others who followed Pershing in the highest ranks of the military were clustered near the grave. To the north, a mass of bouquets Amounted until they masked the trees and were backgrounded oniy by the bright blue sky. "Eternal rest grant to him. O Lord." the chaplain prayed. Then taps sounded--slowly and mournfully echoing amon^ the sunlit Virginia hills. And a last volley rang out from a firing squad stationed jus" south of the grave as the coffin began its sfx-foot descent.

Has Confidence In Count Bemadotte Lake Success July 19 3i-- Brjpite continued fighting in Paies- tine, the United Nations went ahead today with elaborate plans to super-visa a long-term truce.
