  • Description

    THE FORMER PRESIDENT OF BRAZIL, SENOR JANIO QUADROS, AND MEMBERS OF HIS FAMILY, ARRIVED IN THE LONDON DOCKS, SEPT. 15, ABOARD THE BRITISH LINER "URUGUAY STAR". SENOR QUADROS SPARKED A MAJOR CRISIS IN HIS COUNTRY WHEN HE RESIGNED AUGUST 25 AFTER ONLY SEVEN MONTHS IN OFFICE, AND CERTAIN FACTIONS REFUSED FOR A TIME TO ACCEPT THE THEN VICE-PRESIDENT JOAO GOULART AS HIS CONSTITUTIONAL SUCCESSOR.

    UNABLE TO BOARD THE SHIP, NEWSMEN WAITED ON THE QUAYSIDE IN THE HOPES THAT SENOR QUADROS WOULD CLEAR UP THE MYSTERY SURROUNDING HIS SUDDEN DECISION TO RESIGN. THEY WERE DISAPPOINTED. SENOR QUADROS REFUSED TO MAKE A STATEMENT, AND LEFT IN A CAR WITH POLICE ESCORT FOR AN UNKNOWN DESTINATION, FOR AN INDEFINITE STAY.
