    Background: MR. ADLAI EWING STEVENSON, THE AMERICAN AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITED NATIONS, DIED SUDDENLY IN LONDON TODAY (WEDNESDAY). HE WAS 65 YEARS OLD.

    HE COLLAPSED ABOUT 50 YARDS FROM THE AMERICAN EMBASSY. A DOCTOR CALLED FROM THE NEARBY INTERNATIONAL SPORTING CLUB GAVE MR. STEVENSON AN INJECTION AND ADMINISTERED CARDIAC MASSAGE, AND MRS. MARIETTA TREE, A MEMBER OF MR. STEVENSON'S STAFF, TRIED THE "KISS OF LIFE" MOUTH TO MOUTH ARTIFICIAL RESPIRATION METHOD, BUT IT WAS TO NO AVAIL. WHEN MR. STEVENSON REACHED ST. GEORGE'S HOSPITAL, AT HYDE PARK CORNER, HE WAS DEAD. A DEATH CERTIFICATE WAS ISSUED AT 1635 G.M.T. NO CAUSE OF DEATH WAS RECORDED.

    MR. STEVENSON ARRIVED IN BRITAIN ON SATURDAY AFTER ATTENDING A U.N. ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL COUNCIL MEETING IN GENEVA. ALTHOUGH HIS VISIT WAS DESCRIBED AS PRIVATE, HE MET BOTH THE BRITISH PRIME MINISTER AND THE FOREIGN SECRETARY DURING HIS STAY. HE WAS DUE TO RETURN TO WASHINGTON ON FRIDAY.

    PRESIDENT JOHNSON SAID OF MR. STEVENSON'S DEATH, THAT THE UNITED STATES HAD LOST ITS MOTH ELOQUENT SPIRIT, ITS FINEST VOICE. HE IS SENDING A SPECIAL DELEGATION LED BY VICE PRESIDENT HUMPHREY TO ACCOMPANY THE BODY TO WASHINGTON.
