  • Description

    In a special seven-coach train - one coach equipped as a radio station - Marshal Tito of Yugoslavia arrived at the Gare Maritime, Cherbourg, France, Sept 15. After a greeting by M. Gorfe, Sub-Prefect of Calvados, the Yugoslavian leader boarded the 83,673-tons "Queen Elizabeth" on his way to attend the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

    As he walked up the gangway, bare-headed and smiling, his personal standard was broken on the mainmast. Until the World's largest liner sailed three hours later, the President's suite was guarded by Yugoslavian security men, re-enforced by the ship's senior Master-at-Arms.

    The "Queen Elizabeth" will be following closely in the wake of the 7,494 Russian liner 'Baltika', aboard which Soviet Premier Khrushchev and other Eastern European leaders are sailing. The "Baltika" is due in New York late Sept 19, and the "Queen Elizabeth" the following morning.
