United Press vice- president for Europe, and J. Edward Murray, Rome manager of the United Press. .\ . Kide Jeep Through Rome ! We drove an AmcrVcan Jeep through the sunnv streets of Rome :up to the towcrlnt dome of Saint Peters Cathedal and thence turned left to trip entrance of the court yard of Saint Damusus and the Apostolic • palace. Tlie blue-clad Swiss guard with bavonetetl rifle came to attention, saluted and examined our credentials briefly, waving us on. , We entered the apostolic palace •nd ascended by elevator to thc second flood. We were escorted to the Papal Throne room where the Pop, receives ambassadors and talk- ring, set with n ed briefly with members of the stone. He smiled Noble Guards, wearing blue iirid gold uniforms and carrying ceremonial swords. The throne room is hung in scarlet and thc throne rests on a red carpeted dais. Thc [loor is covered with crimson carpet on which is inscribed around the edges the latin words for "Ftxlth, Hope. • Charity, Temperance, Justice and Prudence." After w e had talked with the -Noble Guards about 10 minutes, Harold MacMillan, former member of the Allied Comlssion for Italy «nd now a. conservative member <of the House of Commons, emerged irom the Pope's library. We were Bert on the audience list. The lioonslgnor in waiting to the Pontiff, robes, examinee ' «jnr ; credentials, and said, "Avantl liberals like Llie new editor, Suit I H:\varliio, ana the demo-ltb«ial ed- ilor, SciiHlor Alberto Bergamlnl, who owned the pupcr since It first appeared Immediately after the last *'nr. before Fascism took It over.

'Hie same newspaper only five yours ago front-oaged a story describing a "humble pilgrimage" of the KlnK of Italy to the birthplace Trilussa k allowed to say anything he desires." The,: Glumalc (TUalln'.f reporter who visited Mussolini's birthplace nt 1'rcdapplo says that he spoke lo an uncle of thc late dictator, who told him thnt ail Musollnl's relatives have decided to change their name to Mlslllnl or Maslllul. He also tells how Mussolini's castle. Rocca delle Caminate, overlooking the small town of Prcdap- pio near Forll, has been he.nded over to P.O.W.s who have just returned to Italy from Nazi concentration camps. He adds thai at thu entrance of Predapplo the sturdy farmers >>ive erected ;\ blatantly painted sign reading: "Very important warning. Muss«llnl was NOT born at Predapplo." Sic transit gloria mundl. Scientific Trend the United States in 1936 when he was the Papal secretary of Stale and he recalled having travelled across th c country by plnnc. He s|X>ke In terms of America as n Brent and generous country and expressed thc belief that thc United Stales would be among thu leaders in reconstructing the war- torn world. As happened so frequently during Ihe audience the conversation again turned to food and the Holy Father expressed Die urgency of get- tint' any food surpluses in the western hemisphere to areas of famine. I received the impression his expectation was that, the needy areas would receive grain from both North and South America, pnrtlculnrly the United States and Argentina. As the conversation proceeded the Pope frequently gestured with his long, artistic hands and the ight reflected against his Papul u deep sapphire frequently and in soft, even tones, often raciously soliciting our opinions n many subjects In most detuo- ratic fashion. Before him on the ucsk was a lock a brown portfolio filled with iapers and three ordinary pens vlth steel points standing upright n n box. At the end of the desk was a Jox filled with rosaries and sacred iicdnllions. Thc Palace library is .1 argc room, hung in red. Thc Pope's desk Is just to the right of the entrance door. A number of small gilt chairs are brought out and placed In front of the desk when the Pope grants an audience. No books were hi thc section of the library In which we were received. The books are kept in other-rooms and brought Inlo the Pontiff when he desires them. jvfv impression is that the Pope would be pleased If the peace treaties were formulated speedily, especially the one with Italy. The Pope seemed especially concerned wilii Italy's need for the .stabilizing Influence of a definite treaty as soon as possible. At the end of thc audience the Holy Father pressed a button bc- sitie his desk, siunmoning the Mon- slgnor In waiting. We rose and the Holy Father extended to us his personal blessing with a Kentlc movement of his right hand In the sign of the Cross. to lea'l the new Italians. On thc third pace, the new Qior- nale d'ltalla publishes a poem In Homan direct commemorating Mussolini's death about a year alto in Milan, referring to the former dictator as "Tho TJlack Cat who died poisoned after biting his tongue." The noet's name Is Trilussa. Released by Duee II is onlv fair lo mention that Trllussa, who is looked upon ns an Italian La Fontaine, published IKicms with Rntl-Fasclst hints in Fascist days. Once he was arrested and immediately released on Mus- .solinl's own orders. The Dictator Is said to have told thc police: *l' e C£it>JCs' for Hosiery I 1X3U1SVILLK, Ky. (U.P.l-Owen O.

Urges Flow of Ne~ws .The Holy Father emphasized the urgent need of a free flow of news and information to all parts of the world, especially at the present time, as a contribution in promoting better relations among nations which he regarded as essential to lasting peace. The Pontiff impressed upon us the great responsibility and op|»r- timity newspapers and radio have to disseminate truly democratic ideas and ideals through tlie distribution of impartial information. From discussion of our problems " as Journalists In reporting the news In various parts of the world 1 gained the impression the Holy Father has hoped that objective information will continue to circulate 'and. penetrate the areas which have been deprived by war of freedom of thought and expression.
