    Background: DISCUSSIONS IN THE PEACE TALKS BETWEEN PRESIDENT TSHOMBE OF KATANGA AND UNITED NATIONS OFFICIALS AT NDOLA, NORTHERN RHODESIA, WERE ADJOURNED THROUGH SEPT 20 FOR A CEREMONY IN TRIBUTE TO MR. DAG HAMMARSKJOELD, THE LATE U.N. SECRETARY-GENERAL, WHOSE BODY WAS LYING IN STATE IN THE NEARBY MODERN NON-CONFORMIST CHURCH.

    DELEGATES TO THE TALKS, INCLUDING THE PRINCIPALS, JOINED SIR EVELYN HONE, GOVERNOR OF NORTHERN RHODESIA; LORD ALPORT, BRITISH HIGH COMMISSIONER IN THE RHODESIAN FEDERATION; AND OTHER PERSONALITIES AT THE CHURCH CEREMONY. THERE WAS NO COFFIN ON ITS BLACK CATAFALQUE. A RHODESIAN MILITARY GUARD OF HONOUR WAS CHANGED EVERY FIVE MINUTES.

    MR. HAMMARSKJOELD'S BODY WILL BE FLOWN HOME TO SWEDEN, WHERE IT WILL BE GIVEN A STATE FUNERAL SEPT 29 AT UPPSALA CATHEDRAL.
