    Background: Western Foreign Ministers Herter, Couve de Murville and Selwyn Lloyd are shown leaving Geneva's Palais de Nations May 26 after the last public session of the four-power Foreign Ministers conference. A two day recess had been called to enable Ministers to attend the Washington funeral of John Foster Dulles May 27.

    On their return they will meet in private sessions.

    A four engined 'Constellation' of the US Air Force was waiting for them at Cointrin airport.

    French Foreign Minister Couve de Murville was greeted by American Secretary of State Herter on arrival on the tarmac.

    Last to arrive was Britain's Selwyn Lloyd. the three Ministers stood talking for a while then boarded the aircraft and took off. Russia's Andrei Gromyko had already left by commercial airliner. His last minute decision to attend the funeral found the 'Constellation' already full-up.
