Paul May Buried with Orthodox Rites

Paul May, late Belgian Ambassador to the United States, who died in Washington last month, was buried here today. The orthodox Jewish ritual was followed strictly.

Eulogizing the deceased, Grand Rabbi Wiener described him as having been a faithful Jew, a faithful Belgian and a great personality. Rev. Weill chanted the El Moleh Rachmin, traditional Jewish prayer for the dead.

Among those who attended the services were numerous foreign diplomats, government officials, representatives of Jewish organizations and the presidents of the Brussels and Antwerp Jewish communities.

The body was transported to Belgium aboard the United States Cruiser Pensacola. Earlier, it had been kept in a vault at the Arlington National Cemetery.
