LONDON (AP) — Private
funeral services are planned for
T. S, Eliot, one of the 20th. century's greatest poets.
Eliot, 76, a native of the United States and a British subject
since 1927, died at his home in
London Monday night. The
cause of death was not announced.
A voice of the "Lost Generation" between the world wars,
Eliot revolutionized poetry nnd
also was a noted critic and successful playwright. He won the
Nobel - Prize for 1 iterature in
The same year he was awarded the Order of Merit, one of
Britain's highest honors, l a s t

thesis that Western man must

and a way of life guided by
Christian principles.
year he received the U.S. Med?l
of Freedom, highest civil honor
the president can bestow.
Eliot's best known poem was
"The Waste Land," published in
1922. Other major poems included "The Love Song of J. Albert
Prufrock" (1917), "The Hollow
Men" (1955), "Ash Wednesday"
(1930) and "The Cocktail Party," in 1950.
"The Waste Land" depicted
an age of uncertainty, despair,
squalor and decay through
which a wanderer struggled in
the hope of finding an% abiding
faith but met only disillusionment.
Eliot later was converted to
Anglo-Catholicism and came to
The son of a St. Louis brick
manufacturer, Eliot was educated at Harvard and the Sorbonne in Paris. After 1914 he

school, worked for'seven years
in a bank, and then settled down
at Faber & Faber. one of Britain's leading publishing houses,
as a full-time director. He did
his writing after hours.
Scout Officers Stay On Job
Seventeen leaders of Yonkers District of Boy Scouts,
elected to office over a year
ago, today reported they will
continue in office without new
nominations and elections, under a moratorium during
which the district's controversy with Washington Irving
Council is being investigated
and settled by National and
Regional Scout Councils.
The decision, made at the
first meeting in 1965, was unanimous, says Herbert K. Kanarek, the group's chairman,
"in keeping with the letter and
spirit of the mutual moratorium agreement between the
executive committee of the
National Council and the Yonkers District."
Till End Of Controversy
The committee agreed to
continue "until the end of the
S c o u t i n g controversy," he
The district officers were
"dissolved" by the parent
council early last year. Ambrose V. McCall Jr. was appointed reorganization committee head, and he was elected late in May at a special
election In the City Club, which
Mr. Kanarek and his slate had
repudiated as illegal. The controversy has : been under inquiry by a National Council
group since July 8.
Mr. Kanarek said he will
continue in office "as directed
by the committee, and continue negotiations unjil an honorable and democratic solution
is reached for the purpose of
bettering the Scouting program in the City of Yonkers."
He reported that seven monthly district meetings were
held during 1964, bringing together over 1,000 Scouters and
their wives. Fourteen district
officer meetings took place
during the year, he added,
with "100 per cent attendance
at each and with institutional
Says 300 Boys Suffer
Walter Tice, training chairman, reported four training
sessions were held, and Walter Kardash, organization and
extension chairman, said his
committee had reviewed charters and brought Scouting to
more boys in Yonkers during
the year than in the preceding three years. He expressed
dusappointment that those
charters reviewed by his committee were at first accepted
by Washington Irving Council
and then "not accepted" after

one leader remarked.
"He read the handwriting
on the wall," another commented. "When you don't
have the votes you have to
withdraw or be beaten in a

showdown. He didn't have the
votes any more."
"He did an awful lot for the
city way back when," a young
Democrat offered. "It's different now. He felt little groups
stirring against him. He couldn't fight anymore."
Mr. Brogan voiced his contempt for the current ouster
movement in his parting letter: "I would have pinned
their cars back 10 vears ago."
'He Can Hardly Sit*
But Mr. Brogan is 80 now.
"He has arthritis very bad on
one leg," a friend said. "I
know he feels the pain something fierce. Sometimes he can
haixily sit. Rut you never sea

"He knew politics better
than anyone else in the city,"

A group of Democratic leaders here who have been working for Brogan's ouster as
city leader had no comment
on his retirement.
Sol Friedman, Yonkers lawyer who also was working for
his retirement, said, "This action will remain for the immediate moment a matter for
conjecture. I believe I will
have more to reveal in the
coming month."
As Mr, Brogan announced
his retirement, Mr. Friedman

He urged that time be taken

into effect tonight, according
to Westchester Parks Commissioner Charles E. Pound.
The county, at the same
time, will close the St. Nicholas Ave. access entirely. It is

The 1,000 cars which make
the turns daily at Pondfield
