The body will remain in a vault at Arlington until it is taken to Belgium on the U.S.S. Pensacola, a heavy cruiser. The exact time has not yet been decided upon, but it will be during the next two weeks. Admiral William H. Standley, chief of naval operations, announced the selection of the Pensacola late this afternoon.

The Pensacola, now at Province-town, Mass., was directed to proceed to Annapolis to receive the body.

A huge wreath bearing the Belgian national colors served as a tribute from the King and Queen of the Belgians. Another wreath came from Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt.
