    Background: The Rainbow Temple, here in Lausanne, is the headquarters of an extraordinary sect which believes that Queen Elizabeth of Great Britain, is destined to become the ruler of the world. They are so sure of this that they have designated a red leather armchair, suitably emblazoned with a coat of arms, as her world 'throne'. Frederick Bussy, who leads the sect, has informed President Eisenhower, and Mr. Kruschev of their views, adding that Queen Elizabeth will bring about the Millenium - as a direct descendant of King David. They have invited the Queen to visit the Temple - by helicopter. Brother Bussy argues that as the Aga Khan is regarded by the Ismailis as a direct descendant of Mahomet; "To us, the British Queen is a direct descendant of King David and therefore her world rule is prophesied in the Bible. A smaller 'throne', which stands alongside that which awaits the Queen, is intended for Prince Charles.
