   Lord Baden Powell, the Chief Scout, was buried yesterday afternoon in the tiny cemetery at Nyeri, in Kenya.
   The funeral was carried out with full military honours befitting Lord Baden Powell's rank as Lieutenant General.
   Lady Baden Powell was not present as she had been obliged to go into the country to rest after the strain of nursing her husband during his illness.
   The British Government has made an offer of burial in Westminster Abbey but the question whether the offer will be accepted or the remains transferred to Gilwell (the Scout centre in Britain) will not be decided until after the war. - Reuter.
