Residents of Sausalito, just north of San Francisco, re- ported two jolts, while a wide section of the Hollister area, 100 miles to the southeast, re- ported a sharp jolt. Dr. Carles F.

A smartly dressed woman, wearing a brown suit and pink hat, stepped from a plane, walked up to a man and kissed him. It happens hundreds of times a day at the airport. But this was a pre-arranged kiss, with two detectives watch- ing. The man believed it was a reconciliation with his wife. But the wife and the detectives knew it wasn't. The de- tectives arrested the husband on a charge of embezzling from his wife nine months ago. Mrs. Muriel Burkhalther of Tucson, Ariz., had ar- ranged the details. She had alerted police that her hus- band, Rudolph, 52, would meet her at the airport. She told police how she would be dressed and gave them his description. She told police she-would kiss her husband and then they should arrest him. She had sworn out a warrant against Burkhalther in Tucson charging him with em- bezzlement. She said he took the last Aug. 15, six months after they had been married, and disappeared. Mrs. Burkhalther learned her husband was in Chicago after he wrote and asked for a reconciliation: She agreed to come here, and then went ahead with plans for his arrest. The detectives took Burkhalther to jail. He was held awaiting action by Tucson authorities. "I just wanted a reconciliation with he told the detectives, "and this is what I get." His wife arranged to take the next flight to Tucson. WASHINGTON Foster Dulles' body was brought to lie in state today in a quiet vaulted chapel of imposing Washington National Cathedral.
