The President, who has staked his personal prestige on achieving a voluntary agreement, was reportedly maintaining “absolute insistence’’ that the parties use a 15-day strike postponement to come to terms. While exchanging comments with newsmen from a White House balcony Friday, Johnson said “there is not a word of truth’’ in a broadcast report he had engineered the truce to get time for Congress to pass emergency antistrike legislation. Reliable sources reported administration officials are highly optimistic of a voluntary agreement. But, the sources said, this does not mean the administra- MacArthur Gets Final AccoladeVehicle Strikes Philo Mail Box New Philadelphia police received a report al 1:50 Friday afternoon that an auto driven by Agnes R, Seizer of RD I, Mineral City, struck a mail box on N.

(AP)- With measured cannon fire and the sad notes of Taps, the nation sent its old soldier. Douglas MacArthur, to his earthly peace today. It was a moving ceremony-one of massed flags dipping in waves, of stirring band music, and of quiet prayers and the sadness of the 84-year-old general of the Army’s widow, Jean, and son, Arthur, 26. The Stars and Stripes were removed from MacArthur* steel casket before he was to be lowered into his tomb in a crypt in the MacArthur Memorial in this old Navy town where his mother was born. And thus, the five-star general and hero of three wars who died Sunday—fading away as he once eloquently predicted—was laid to rest. There were dignitaries and old comrades on hand, their heads bowed as the benediction was read at the crypt after church services at St. Paul Episcopal Church two blocks away. Representing President Johnson, who paid his respects to MacArthur in earlier ceremonies in Washington, was Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy, who less than five months ago saw his brother, President John F. Kennedy, buried with similar honors. Before the entombment, MacArthur^ body was carried to the church for Episcopal funeral services. As the horse-drawn caisson slowly rolled past, ranks of troops lowered the bright colorful flags of all the states and territories and of the 26 Army units MacArthur had been asso- Sce FINAL, Page 14 tion would let the 15 days slip by without preparing emergency legislation as a last resort if necessary. Johnson Friday dropped in four times on talks the mediators were holding with the unions and with management. He asked the mediators for a progress report Wednesday.

Until Johnson stepped in, a strike at 12:01 a m. Friday had seemed a certainty. At that hour nearly 200 railroads were to post revised work rules governing wages and See RAILROADS.
