After coming here, he often visit- ed the Mayo Clinic and gained there surgical knowledge which made possible his Fellowship in the American College of Surgeons. At one time, Drs.

The violent death ra.te set a new postwar record for the holiday. More than 14 persons died every two hours during the period. Motorists were killed on the high- ways at almost the exact rate es- timated in advance by the Na- tional Safety Council. The council had estimated 240 highway deaths. There were 241. But an unusually higher num- ber of 98 drownings was recorded A heat wave that sent millions to beaches, rivers and pools in the eastern half of the nation was a contributing factor in this.

Williamson is recov- to Sunday midnight. Ned H. Dearborn, commenting Jy JOSEPH and STEWART ALSOP WASHINGTON Probably the best way to begin this report is to explain who the July 20 Ger- mans are. In brief, they are the survivors of the group of German staff officers and other still-inde- pendent-minded patriots who shar- ed in the plot to kill Adolf Hitler oa July 20, 1944. Most of the men of July 20 were executed in the last great blood purge, after Col. Von Stauffen- berg's briefcase-bomb failed to achieve its purpose. Those who live on are among the very few Germans who never "for a moment lost their power to look the world in the eye as free men, without groveling, or whining, or bombast. One of these men of July 20, who is a friend of thesa reporters, came Washington the other day. He is a violent and intense man, pas- sionately German, passionately anti-totalitarian, passionately Eu- ropean too. He still bears the harsh marks of the wounds he sufferec on the Russian front; yet his con- stant pain seems to mean nothing to him. Building a free German future has been almost his only preoccupation since the war ended. In his task, he has lost himself and forgotten his own losses; and because of this curious quality of dedication, he commands a very special respect in the-small and somewhat ingrowing political com- munity of the West German capital Bonn.' Being magnificently, impatient of the progress that always seems to him .too slow, he is" a ruthless critic of Germany. Yet he has never fallen into thy common Euro- pean habit of'blaming his country's past-war ills on the unwisdom of Americans. It was all the more surprising, then, to find him sud- denly preoccupied with' American rather than German'problems. "What has happened in this he burst out, almost before greetings had been exchang- ed. "Have you gone Why did he ask such an extra- ordinary question, was the only possible reply. Thus checked, he explained himself in a calm tone that only mordant. made his words more Germans like had inevitably experienced mixed emotions when "you Americans set out to teach democracy to the people."

Rue diger and Dr. Henry E. Ruediger In Associations He was a member of the Wi nona County Medical Society and the Minnesota State and American Medical associations and of Ph Chi Medical fraternity. Born in Fountain City, Wis., Oct 1; 1874, Dr. Heise married Miss Adele von Rohr at St Martin's Lutheran Church Feb. 2, 1902. The bride's father, the late Rev. Philip von Rohr, performed the ceremony. They have lived all their married life here, and observed their gold- en wedding anniversary last year. Surviving are his wife; five sons, Drs. Herbert, William, Philip, Pau and Carl, Winona, all of whom have their mother's maiden name, von Rohr, as a middle name; three daughters, Mrs. John (Dorothy) Curtis, Winona, who has been the on the traffic deaths, said it is "bitterly ironic that once again America has seen fit to ho-nor the dead on Memorial Day by need- lessly killing the living."

The lake and slough are formed by waters from the nearby Chippewa Eiver. According to the surviving youths, Jerry said that he was go- ing to swim to a sandbar a short distance offshore. After wading in- to the water, he swam for a short distance and then began to thresh about in the water. His brother said that Jerry went under water once, came to the sur- face, shouted for help and disap- peared beneath the water. James and Allen notified -other members of the picnic party and authorities here were notified. Undersheriff Seline recruited a group that included Pepin County Traffic Officer Warren Holden, Game Warden Carl Robert Blair, James Gibson, Frank Car- penter, Robert Jeatran and Guy Mjller Jr. The lescue crew manned boats and began to drag the slough wa- ters, in an effort to locate the body. At about p.m. an hour and a half .after 'the drowning the youth's body was recovered by Holden and" Jeatran.

Standing Room Fight Begins On Parade Line Capital Takes Appearance of Outdoor Camp By PHILIP CLARKE LONDON (ft Thousands upon thousands of excited people began the great rush for standing room along London's glittering corona- tion route full 24 before Queen Elizabeth It's histor- ic crowning and procession. The capital took on the appear- ance of a great outdoor camp. Hundreds slept in parks and along streets in the chill of last night. As dawn broke, thousands more swelled the waiting throngs. Nearly half a million squatters were expected to spend tonight, coronation eve, in the open to await the start of the biggest show in a lifetime. They brought bedrolls, blankets, and even hammocks to swing be- tween trees. r Whole families slept on rugs. Some brought portable stoves to make tea. Most brought enough food to last out their long vigil. Trains Arriving And between this morning and the small hours of tomorrow, trains from the provinces will bring an estimated 2% million more people pouring into London to join the millions already last-minute rush of from all corners of the earth, wai under way. Planes stacked up to land at Lon- donls two big airports. Special trairis: and 'boats disgorged thous- ands of other's from abroad. Traffic along the teeming six- mile coronation route is virtually at a standstill. Solid swarms of pedestrians have all but taken over many main thoroughfares. The crowds are good natured and gay. For most Britons, the biggest loliday in over a decade of au- sterity has begun. The lucky in have seats in specially milt, bright-painted stands along the route will start taking their places early tomorrow., But perhaps four million mort will see the Queen on her way to and from her crowning ancient Westminster Abbey before distinguished and invited guests. An estimated 30 million other Britons will watch the spectacle on television. Joyful Occasion For some it was a particularly joyful occasion. In her last official action before the coronation, Eliz- abeth handed out ranks and honori to some Britons. Among those knighted were two of Britain's most popular sports Champion Jockey Gordon Richards "and Jack Hobbs; veteran cricket star. The' Queen's newest honors list marked her majesty's coronation and' also her official birthday on June 11. It rewarded Britons in all walks of life for service and seniority. A somber note was added, bow- ever, in the death yesterday of William Hepburn, 64, the Queen's gardener, while spe- cial-blooms he-had grown for the coronation in'.Hyde Park. He had been awarded the Royal Victorian Order, Fifth, in ths honors list. His aides said he may have died from the strain of his. cor- onation first recorded casualty _of the event.
