X) T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N FRIDAY, MAY 12, 1967 Pilgrims Sleep Outside In Rain Awaiting Pope Paul's Arrival FATMA, Pc^rf yPI)-- Ttwr* to no room at any iun. But May by'the thousands pilgrims converged in rain, thirst and hunger oc this Roman CathoUc shrine village which Foot Paul VI will visit Saturday. Government and church officials ukl 50,000 persons already have arrived. They said as many as 3 million may be on the way; to wtoess the Pope observe flic 50th anniversary of the first miracle of Fatima. The authorities declared a virtual state of emergency to cope with the faithful. They asked pilgrims to bring their own food since local restaurants are able to handle only a few. They said water also will be a problem despite the many fountains. And .the housing situation appeared hopeless. Bad weather worsened it. The pouring ram continued along with thunderstorms that already. brought death to one little girl struck by lightning not far from the basilica of "Our Lady of the Rosary." Most of the pilgrims are sleeping outside in adjacent fields or under the pine and olive trees that dot the green, rolling hills. Two tunnels under the horseshoe-shaped basilica north of the shrine were oacked with tired and wet pilgrims. During the night they huddled under the shelter for protection from the elements giving the tunnels a refugee character reminiscent to London subway tunnels during the Nazi blitz. "At least we have a roof over our heads," said 25-year old Aldavira Mendes from Banca, Portugal. She arrived today with her two-year old son in her arms after having walked the 230 miles here from her village near Porto. "We had a horrifcle night Wednesday," the young woman said as she huddled in the dim light of the crowded. tunnel while her husband and child dozed next to her. "The rain was so heavy and we had to lay down in the wet grass beside the road with only a\ x small umbrella to cover the three of us." "This is a luxury now," she said. "We can stay here with our blankets without any fear of rain." · Thousands of others, however, fared less well and slept out in the open with nothing but umbrellas and sometimes plas- tic sheets to protect them. At nightfall small clusters of p i l g r i m s huddled together against the wet chill between periods of rain to exchange stories and dine on snacks of bread and chourizo, a Portu- guese sausage resembling sala- vast tent nearby. One said he thought the cantsjen resembled a field hospital and hence had been discouraged. "I prefer to mi. In a few spots families cooked soup on small primus stoves. Surprisingly enough most of the pilgrims steered clear of the Red Cross canteen mounted in a stay away," he said. "But maybe I will go there tomorrow. Appointment Of judges By '69 Forecast PHOENIX (AP) -- H. Karl Mangiim, Flagstaff, president elect of the Arizona Bar Association, says by 1969, he thinks Arizona's superior court judges will be appointed instead of elected. Addressing .members of the bar Thursday, Mangum said during his tenure as President of the state association, this would be one of his goals. He said another goal would be to have the salaries of judges over the state raised. Tucsonian To Preview New Village A preview of Kachina Village, a planned community in the Ponderosa pine forest near Flagstaff, will be held tomorrow and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The site is 10 minutes driving time south of the city on the Black Canyon Highway. Developer of the 950-acre site is Tucsonian John Bender, who developed Skyline Country Club Estates and Flecha Caida Estates in Tucson. Bender said there are 1,600 homesites planned and "there won't .be any artificial forest of television antennas." He reported a tower on Mt. Eldon beams signals to one central antenna in the village and they are conveyed to homes by underground cable. The development will have a private Water company, sewer system with central" treatment p l a n t and packed cinder streets, he said. There also is a private lake stocked with trout.
