PAG« TWO BLYTHEVILLE (ARK,) COURIER NEWS Senator Connally Opposes Clark's Nomination as Vatican Ambassador WASHINGTON, Oct. 23. (fl',-O|l- poiitlon by Senator Connally (D- TCMI) givt weight today to a Democratic move to avoid » vote on President Trumnn's nomination of Gen. Mark Clark as ambassador to the Vatican. Connally bused his light against the appointment on Clark's World War I! command of the 36lh Texas National Guard Division In the blcoity Hapido River crossing In Italy. But i Democratic senator who usually supports Mr. Truman's proposals told a reporter he and others hope for avoidance of the religious Issue raised by the President's move to give lull diplomatic recognition to the Vatican. This senator, who asked that his Hame not be usecT said he believes the President's action has put on « hot political spot every senator running for re-election next year in states where the result Is in doubt, between Democrats and Republicans. A vot« for confirmation of Clark would anger Protestant elements which have opposed giving diplomatic recognition to the FUinmn Catholic Church State, the senator said, while a vole against Clark might arouse Catholics who hold the balance of power in sonic areas. As a result, Ihe Democratic senator said he and others hope the President will decide to nnme Clark as his personal representative to the Vatican. Myron C. Taylor held that status frcm 1940 until last January. This would not require Senate action, on Clark's appointment, nor would It require action by both houses on a bill to waive the law agatnst a military officer's appointment to a civilian post. It also would not Involve official diplomatic recognition of the Vatican. Clark's nomination was submitted Saturday and Congress art- Jcuirned about three hours later without acting on it, Many prominent Protestants have objected to the action, arguing tlmt establishment of full diplomatic relations with the Vatican violates a! constitutional Injunction that! church and state affairs be kept separate. The Whit* House said "a Jew hundred" letters and telegrams had come In, most of them critical. The National Council of the Churches or Christ In America summoned a special meeting In Ne«- York on Oct. 31 to discuss the mntlor. The 125-membcr general Ixrarrt of the Council was called Into special session. Churches represented in the council have some 31.000,000 members. The St. loin's Bnptlst Ministers' Conference called the action by Mr. Truman, hlmselt a Haptist. a move "to secure the Roman Calliolic vote" and said it will oppose the President if he seeks rc-elcciion. C'onnalry's was the first opposition voiced by a senator U> Clark personally. In a statement yesterday, Connally said the nomination "Li dead" unless a recess appointment is made. White House sources indicated noJie would be nude because of doubt that Clark could serve and retain his military status. !Ic has said he will not give that up. Connally heads the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which ft'ould have to pass on any subsequent nomination, Connolly asserted Clark had "mistreated and discriminated against the Texas 3Gih Division and other Texas troops" in the Rapidio crossing. "He showed himself unfit V> fill any high position, either military or civil," Connnlly declared. Former Secretary of War Robert Patterson has defended Clark's conduct of the Italian campaign. Clark, a four-star general, now is serving as chief of the Army's Field Forces. Excess Beef Pool Moy Be Set Up To Help Provide Meat for Army WASHINGTON, Oct. 23.
