    KING FAISAL OF SAUDI ARABIA, ON THE SECOND DAY OF HIS STATE VISIT TO LONDON SAILED TONIGHT (WEDNESDAY) DOWN THE RIVER THAMES TO GREENWICH AND THE ROYAL NAVAL COLLEGE FOR DINNER AS GUEST OF THE BRITISH FOREIGN SECRETARY, MR. GEORGE BROWN.

    WELCOMING THE KING, MR. BROWN SAID HE HOPE THE TALKS THE KING WOULD HAVE IN LONDON WOULD CENTRE ON HOW THE COUNTRIES COULD WORK TOGETHER. BUT THE POMP AND CIRCUMSTANCE OF A ROYAL VISIT IN THE COLLEGE'S FAMOUS PAINTED HALL KEPT POLITICS GENERALLY IN THE BACKGROUND.
