Chinese mourn Chen Yi death By JAMES PRINGLE PEKING (Heuter) The Chinese people mourned today the death of Foreign Minister Chen Yi, a colorful veteran rev- olutionary who won fame during the Communist battle for power. Chinese leaders, including Chairman Mao Tae-tung and Madame Soong Ching-ling, the widow of Sun founder of modern now a deputy chairman of the People's Republic, attended a ceremony Monday in Pa Pao Shan Cemetery of Fallen revolu- tionaries in western Peking to pay their last respect. Chen Yi, who wasted dishes and loaded barges in France as a young man to pay for bis edu- cation, died last Thursday from cancer at the age of 70. Although Chen had rarely been seen In public since 1969, he was believed to have sur- vived politically despite strong attacks on his policies by the Red Guards during the Cultural revolution. Missing from the list of mour- ners was Defence Minister Lin Piao-Chairman Mao's desig- nated heir who dropped from sight last June apparently has fallen from power. There was no mention that he even sent a wreath, as did other officials who were absent. Several members of die Chinese politburo who have been linked to Lin also were not re- ported present.

INTERVIEWS ONE Miss Cornellier said last week that the only person she inter viewed in compiling the report was Hiss Parent, the bride-to- be. Mr. Goyer quoted a key par- agraph translated roughly by 0 fitials from Miss Gornellier recommendation that the mar riage be allowed: 'Mr. Geoffrey li the father of three children, whose ages are eight, six and the report said. "These children are beini cept by two of Mr: Geoffrey' >rothers. However, these show symptoms of a serious cardiac pathology and there- ore, in the event of death, the children would be unprovldei or. 'In the event of such an- eventuality, Miss Parent coulc assume the responsibility for subsistence of her depend- ents, the marriage having granted her the tutorship of the bildren. Miss Parent also ac- cepts to reunite the children Mr. Geoffrey is liberated and she appears to have the ualities of a good mother and educator."

The Montreal lawyer was len an executive assistant to a ederal cabinet minister. Denis and Geoffrey were In he 1958 law class at the Uffl'ver- ty of Montreal. Mr. Goyer said ie himself graduated in 1967. in aide said that a biography giving 1958 as the dale is wrong. He hadn't known Geoffrey and new Mr. Denis only at univer- fy. They hadn't been involved socially, professionally or DO- tdcally" later. "It be ttut someUiing li not Mr. Goyer admit- ted.
