They clutched soft drinks and blankets as they inched closer to the coffin of their who died of a heart attack Mon- day at the age of 78 after 30 years in power and in exile At first the mourners weie allowed to kiss Peron's forehead and touch his cheeks with flowers and handkerchiefs Then police began roughly pushing away hands reaching to touch the body So many people lined up outside the Congress building that Isabel the general's widow and his successor as ordered that the body re- main lying in state until Thursday Funeral ser- vices originally had been scheduled for today After lying in the body will be taken to a chapel in the suburb of Olivos to await the refur- bishing of Peron's family tombs at Chacarita Cemetery In keeping with Peron's last the body will not be embalmed or preserved Mrs a former dancer with little formal kept her husband's cabinet un- changed as she prepared to grapple with huge political and economic problems The huge Peronist move- ment is badly and Mrs Peron is expected to have trouble reconciling the radical left with the more conservative mainline leaders to whom she is close But the political impact of Peron's death was forgotten for the moment at least in the massive wave of public mourning Long columns of carrying banners identify- ing them as urban mixed peacefully with right-wing militants A group of cripples in wheelchairs waiting to view Peron's body was shoved about to allow a vehicle to pass There were no and about police and troops tried to keep the crowds organized outside the Congress building Aside from the crowds already standing in lines snaking through the centre of Buenos Aires for many others were being brought from the provinces in chartered buses Most were not allowed to unload in the centre of the city due to security and had to walk miles to get near the domed Congress building Mrs accom- panied the body downtown from the president's sub- urban residence earlier in the day Near the mam it was put on a gun carriage and escorted by mounted grenadiers through mobs She helped the guard of honor lift the coffin into Buenos Aires' columned cathedral in black with no she ap- peared to fight back tears during a Roman Catholic funeral mass the with Peron's general's hat and sword atop was taken to and the public was allowed to approach the clothed in a dress uniform All along the hundreds of thousands sobbed and chanted and Companero Peron Laskin assumes powers of convalescing Leger OTTAWA Chief Jus- tice Bora Laskin of the Su- preme Court of Canada was sworn in as administrator of the government of Canada assuming all powers of Gov -Gen Jules who is convalescing from a stroke on June 8 A Government House spokesman said Gov -Gen decided to hand over his authority temporarily to Mr Justice Laskin on ad- vice of doctors who urged con- tinued rest The Governor-General's condition continues to im- prove following his release from hospital June 19. the spokesman said But con- valescence would continue for several more weeks As Mr Justice Laskin holds all the powers of the Queen's representative in including authority to summon and dissolve Parlia- ment The little-used post of administrator is normally fill- ed when a Governor-General dies or is out of the country for more than a month It was last invoked when the late Gov -Gen Georges Vanier died in early 1967 Government House said that when Gov -Gen Leger is able to resume his the administrator will cease his function But it appears likely that Mr Justice Laskin will preside over the formation of a new government after the July 8 and might read the subsequent speech from the throne that will open the next Parliament Gov -Gen Leger suffered the stroke at a dinner in Sher- brooke Que shortly after re- ceiving an honorary degree from the University of Sher- brooke After release from hospital he returned to where aides say he frequently strolls through the gardens of his residence Rideau Hall DAVIDS BISCUITS Social Tea 14 oz. net wt. pkg.
