result of injuries suffered in the wreck of the "Cannonball Express."
Webb, who is 83 today, leaped from the engine at Casey's orders

WASHINGTON, Uf) Early October has been selected for the long
reported visit to this country by Queen Elizabeth II and Prince .Philip.
-This was learned yesterday from persons familiar with the ne
gotiations that have been under way for months between Washinglori
and London. The British Queen and her husband are expected to
spend about 10 days in this country.
This will be the Queen's first visit to America since she ascended
the throne in 1952. She and her husband, then the Duke of Edinburgh,
were here in 1951 as the guests of former President Truman.
It is expected that the Queen's formal acceptance of an invitation
from President Eisenhower will be received here in two or three weeks.
This will be the signal that all the myriad details for a state visit
J have finally been worked out with
Elaborate secrecy has marked the negotiations ever since they be
gan, as is usual in such cases, but it is expected that the royal visit
will include other cities besides Washington.
