    AN IMPRESSIVE ROSTER OF WORLD LEADERS HAS ALREADY ARRIVED IN WASHINGTON, AND MORE ARE ARRIVING THIS MORNING, TO PAY THEIR FINAL RESPECTS TO JOHN FOSTER DULLES.

    AMONG THE FIRST ARRIVALS YESTERDAY WAS WEST GERMAN CHANCELLOR KONRAD ADENAUER. HE WAS GREETED BY A CROWD OF WELL WISHERS, AND PERSONALLY WELCOMED BY VICE PRESIDENT NIXON.

    THE AGING CHANCELLOR WILL VISIT PRESIDENT EISENHOWER AT THE WHITE HOUSE DURING HIS STAY, AS WILL SECRETARY OF STATE HERTER, WHO IS EXPECTED TO GIVE THE PRESIDENT A PROGRESS REPORT ON THE GENEVA CONFERENCE.

    ADENAUER SPOKE BRIEFLY AT THE AIRPORT AND SUMMED UP HIS REASON FOR MAKING THE LONG TRIP. "I AM HERE," HE SAID, "TO ACCOMPANY MY FRIEND, DULLES, ON HIS LAST JOURNEY."
    FROM THE FAR EAST, RUSSIA, LATIN AMERICA AND EUROPE DULLES' FRIENDS AND ADMIRERS ARE ARRIVING FOR THE FUNERAL SERVICE THIS AFTERNOON IN THE NATIONAL CATHEDRAL.

    AMONG THEM ARE MADAME CHIANG KAI_SHEK (CQ) TO REPRESENT NATIONALIST CHINA. FROM THE UNITED NATIONS, SECRETARY-GENERAL HAMMARSKJOLD. THE FOREIGN MINISTERS OF THE WESTERN ALLIES, AND RUSSIA'S ANDREI GROMYKO (CQ). KING BAUDOUIN (CQ) OF BELGIUM WILL BE THERE, AS WILL THOUSANDS OF ORDINARY CITIZENS. IT WILL BE A SIMPLE SERVICE AT THE CATHEDRAL, AND THEN THE FUNERAL PROCESSION WILL DRIVE TO ARLINGTON NATIONAL CEMETERY.

    THERE WILL BE GRAVESIDE RITES, A 19-GUN SALUTE, THREE VOLLEYS OF RIFLE FIRE. AND THEN, THE FINAL NOTES OF "TAPS".

    UNTIL NOON TODAY, THE BODY WILL LIE IN BETHLEHEM CHAPEL OF THE CATHEDRAL, AND THEN IT WILL BE MOVED TO THE MAIN CHAPEL FOR THE FUNERAL SERVICES.
