' By CTlYDEHERRIXG When Bishop Floyd Begin arrives to assume his duties as bishop of the newly created Oakland diocese, he will probably be surprised to learn that the church designated as the diocese cathedral was equipped with a .bishop's throne some three decades ago. The Rt. Rev. Joseph M. Gleason, pastor of historical St. Francis de Sales Church from 1928 to 1942 installed the throne'-an honor usually accorded only the1 principal church" of a- diocese in the 1930's "for the convenience of visiting dignitaries." : -OFFERS SOLUTION Perhaps the priest foresaw the day that St. Francis de Sales would be a cathedral. Nevertheless, a decade di so later, after Msgr. Richard A. O'Donnell, the present pastor, succeeded to- the duties, the bishop decreed that there was to be only one cathedral in the San Francisco diocese, hence the throne must be re moved from the Oakland church. SanQuentin Rioters Put In Isolation Msgr. O'Donnell pleaded that it would be impossible to remove the throne without marring the beauty of. the sanctuary and suggested instead that the throne position be obscured by a statue 'of St. Francis de Sales, -. The suggestion met with the approval of the . bishop. .Now Msgr. O'Donnell is looking for a new spot forthe Saint, within the fine old brick structure that has been a landmark in Oakland for -n a r 1 y three quarters of a century. Theparish tf -St- Francis de Safes was created in 1886 by Archbishop Patrick William Riordan. The land chosen for the first church, was Oak land's early - day circus grounds. There.- were scattered homes in the surrounding fields and a fringe of dwell ings along San Pablo Ave. where h o r s e-drawn cars operated to Berkeley. BUSINESS SECTION Oakland's business section was centered along Seventh, Broadway and Washington Streets, with the growth ten-! dency toward 14th St. , j The first Mass of the new parish was celebrated in February 1886 in Hannifin's Hall on San Pablo Ave., at 19th bt. - In May ground was broken at Hobart and Grove Sts., for the church. A wooden building was put up to house a combination school and clergy residence. It was dedicated in 1887. The St. Francis School was opened in July under the guidance of the Sisters of the Holy Names of J e s u s and Mary, from the, COTfiate Merritt. The' first church at 21st and Grove Streets was a rambling structure with a short, pointed steeple.. It served for six years. . - COMPLETED IN 1893 Work on the new church began in 1890 and was completed in 1893. The cornerstone reads "St. Francis de Sales, September 13, 1891."

FAY WASHINGTON - UP) When Red China begins making her own atomic arms, perhaps in a few years, neighboring nations ' including Russia may have more initial cause for conce r n than the United States. Some military men believe it 1 ike 1 y the first nuclear weapons in the "Chinese arsenal might be for tactical use to boost firepower of her huge ground forces rather than for strategic strikes against distant targets. This is based, in part, on the assumption that Communist China initially at least would lack the delivery systems of ICBM rockets and long-range bombers needed for strategic attack on targets thousands of miles away,-. But shorter range, tactical missiles and fighter-bomber aircraft would be easier to come by. The growing coolness between Moscow and Petping resulted in the withdrawal about a year ago of mafiy if not most of the Soviet technicians who had been helping the Red axis partner develop industry and war - making capabilities. JFK VIEW At a recent news conference President Kennedy was asked what the prospects might be for bringing Communist China into a nuclear control agreement: Kennedy replied this obvi ously would be "difficult, then added "there is really no use in having an inspection (of DaklanbiS&&ributifc OAKLAND'S IOCAUY OWNIO IOCAIIY CONTKOUID DAILY Supreme on Continental Side of San Francisco Bay Established February Jl, 1174 Mtmbtr Amtrlean Newspaptr Publishers Association Charter Member Audit Bureau of Circulation Complete Associated Press Service Fof Metropolitan Oakland Fult United Press International Service MEMBER OF THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Associated Press Is entitled eclu- tiviy to the use for rtDubllcation of all tho local news printed In this newspaper well ell p dispatches.

Some estimates by experts in this country are that Communist China probably will begin making nuclear weapons within this decade. At present, China has little capacity for production of big aircraft or large missiles, although there is some limited manufacture of light liaison-type planes and small transports. On the other hand, China can assemble planes from parts bought abroad. She also has been buying some trans port-type aircraft from Brit ish manufacturers. But the belief is that for the next few years, at least, China's capa bility for building big bomb ers ana missiles will be lim ited. MODERN ARMS Red China has succeeded in modernizing her large tactical forces substantially in the last decade, in large part through Soviet aid. And her substantial air force now is equipped with modern and, in seme instances, first-line jet tactical aircraft. Chinese Communist facto ries have begun to turn out small arms and ammunition of their own-They even tiave been able to produce medium tanks and some trucks and other vehicles. Information indicates, how ever, that some of the more refined technological produc tion remains a problem, in eluding such things as elec txonics. SAN QUENTIN - Fourteen rebellious prisoners who rioted yesterday at San Quen-tin Prison have been placed in isolation cells pending an investigation of what touched off the screaming demonstration. Tear gas grenades were finally used to drive the prisoners back to their cells after they refused to leave an exercise yard and began screaming and cursing guards. Involved were inmates in the exercise yard of the adjustment center,, where troublemakers are confined. These are convicts considered to be a menace to the general prison population. Capt. Carl Hocker said the 14 prisoners were among 83 confined to solitary cells after a series of fatal stabbings of inmates last December. Hocker said the men refused to return to their cells after the exercise period and began shouting for other con victs to join the rebellion. Their defiance, he said, was "building up to something big." He ordered guards to throw the tear gas at the demonstrators. .

Uth StrMt, Oakland IL 71738 HUGE PLANE DOWN SAFE WITH JAMMED GEAR TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE An Air Force transport plane with a jammed front landing gear circled warily here for 30 minutes Saturday before making an emergency landing on a foam-covered runway. None of the six crewmen was injured. An Air Force spokesman said the four-engine C124 Globemaster was returning from a routine training flight over Northern California when crewmerj discovered that the nose, landing gear would lower only partially. - The base air control tower was notified and emergency crews spread a layer of fire-resistant foam over the runway. Emergency vehicles stood by while the transport was brought down. As the plane touched the runway, the jammed landing gear suddenly snapped into its normal position. 20,000 on Guard n Algiers Terror Continued from Page 1 inc through Bab-el Oued Bobby Sees Free Europe in Next Decade BONN, Germany-fUPD At torney General Robert F. Ken nedy, fresh from a-visit to Red-encircled Berlin- Satur day, predicted that Eastern Europe will be liberated from communism because the wave of the future is with us." "We are the new revolu tion," Kennedy told members of the German Foreign Policy Society, "we have the truth on our side. If we have the courage, we are going to win." He also told his audience he was far more optimistic about the situation in the new nations of Asia than he had been before making his visit there. The attorney general, 35, met privately for 90 minute: with Chancellor Konrad Adenauer, 85, shortly after his arrival. He told newsmen later that Adenauer was in complete agreement with the Kennedy administration on all matters, including the handling of Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev s bid for an in ternational summit meeting. their homes m nearby Moslem quarters, were shot down by pistol-firing Europeans. Shots came from the street, doorways and balconies. Women, some holding babies, watched the killings from win-dows and balconies. Helmeted troops welded themselves in rings around the quarter arid imposed a curfew that banned the 50,000 inhabitants from leaving "un til further orders." The quarter, one of Algiers most explosive for racial trouble, is inhabited by poor workers, many of Spanish and Italian origin. Ambulances screaming behind motorcycle escorts raced wounded and dead to hospitals and morgues. The police radio network, "Albatross," reported the attacks with professional monotony. : "Albatross 25 calling headquartershave been waiting for ambulance more than half hour," one appeal said. All ambulances in use-continue waiting," .came the reply. The Bab-el Oued violence began early in the afternoon when a European taxi driver was shot and killed by a Moslem. Quickly, any Moslem seen on the streets was a target. Later, long columns of trucks and armored cars moved into other points of Algiers, taking position at the limit between European and Moslem sections in an at tempt to forestall further out breaks. Troops holding guns at the readv sealed off the teeming Moslem quarters of Belcourt.

Thousands of shoppers roamed the streets and side walk cafes were busy. In the barricaded adminis t rat ion building overlooking the city, officials feared the worst period in the history of "the 7 ' -y ear-old war is ap proaching. Moslem masses, tensely awaiting peace, also believes that murder will strike with-double intensity when a cease-fire is pro claimed. Senate Report May Dispel U2 Mystery WASHINGTON - W - Some of the mystery surrounding U2 pilot Francis Gary Powers may be cleared up "for senators next week. Sen. Richard B. Russell, D-Ga., told a reporter he expects a complete and detailed report within the next few days from director John A. McCone of the Central Intelligence Agency on the secret questioning of Powers. Russell said the Senate Armed Service Committee, which he heads, may decide Thursday whether Powers should be called to testify after it receives the report on him at a closed session. ture hose spire towers feet above the sidewalk. Michael O'Sullivan, who died July 10, 1956 at the age of 88, was the original painter of the church. He restored the church's art in 1941 for the Golden S u b i 1 e e celebration. His original paintings included 25 murals depicting the life of Christ They were executed from copies of old masters used by the church for hundreds of years. The interior of the church has been described as one of tbe.jmpst beautify sanctuaries of the Archdiocese of Sari Francisco. MARBLE ALTARS ; . The church altars are of Carrara marble, designed and built in Italy. Six marble statues in the interior of the church also came from Italy. The stained glass windows, said to be among the finest in the West, are the work of Mayer of Munich, Bavaria. The statue of the Blessed Virgin is a replica in white marble of the Sistine Madonna.

Study Expects Propaganda By Satellite WASHINGTON (UPD A Senate staff report said Saturday there is every reason to believe that Russia, seat of the world's most powerful propaganda mill, hopes to use space communications as a mighty weapon to influence men's minds. The report, by the staff of the Aeronautical and Space Sciences Committee, said Russian leaders have been silent for the most part about their propaganda ambitions for message-sending earth satellites. But the strategic value of controlling a communications system that Lenin and his Communist revolutionaries never dreamed of could not have escaped So viet planners, the 158-page document said. The staff assessment of So viet ambitions and an outline of decisions this country must make in organizing its space communications effort set the stage for committee hearings starting Tuesday. Chairman, Robert S. Kerr D.-Okla., has introduced legis-1 at ion to create a satellite communications corporation owned by U.S. common carriers such as American Telephone & Telegraph Co., and Radio corporation of America. The committee also will take testimony about White House-sponsored legislation to set up a government-regulated cor poration in which any American could buy $1,000 shares of stock. Sen. Russell B. Long, D.-La., said meantime that voting stock in any privately-owned satellite corporation should be limited to individuals he said the profit-making potential of space communications was fantastic. The senate report said world wide communications through earth satellites is swiftly em erging as among the first practical uses of outer space. .

Col. John Glenn. It burst beyond newspaper editorial praise. Americans were buttonholed in streets and congratulated. European television networks transmitted special casts showing Glenn's dramatic liftoff and millions listened to what they considered the spellbinding chatter betweeir the astronaut and ground control stations by radio. What impressed Europeans most was the complete lack of secrecy on news coverage of the flight from delayed take off to President Kennedy s spontaneous telephoned congratulations to Glenn. Newspapers in Spain, which have been bluntly critical of the United States in past weeks, went to the opposite extreme. Madrid's -ABC said that "For the West, Glenn's flight not only spells out the sue cess of a man and a tech nique, but the success of a nation which has mobilized all its genius and resources and dedicated them to science and progress. "Above all," it added, "the U.S. success signifies the na tion s search tor supremacy as champion of the Free World," Another Madrid newspaper, Arriba, said that "the fact that the United States wanted this fabulous trip to be carried out before the eyes of the people is the most eloquent testimony about a wav of life, a way of thinking and a humanistic talent three factors which the Western and - Christian worlds pro claim as inseparable." There was. much the same sentiment in other European editorials: La Metropole of Brussels: because of the lack of secre-; cy, "it could be said that this marvellous adventure has become an act of humanity as a whole." ; Le Monde of Paris: Amer ican prestige, down since the-Soviet Sputniks, has now fully j recovered. Glenn's "courages in the face of so many 'false -- starts' was as praiseworthy'- as actual fliolit ' "- Denmark's Aalborg Stiftsti-- dende: "The U.S. deserves all the homage given it these days." The London Daily Express: t "Youth in Britain sees in John. Glenn a magnificent specimen of American manhood. But it also sees in him a pioneer to emulate and surpass." The Tokyo newspaper Mai-nichi Shimbun said it was. "particularly impressed by the frank and open manner in which the United States carries outthe space flights." ' "This is because the American society is not secretive but democratic," it said. The Japan Times welcomed Khrushchev's suggestion to President Kennedy that space knowledge be pooled. This, it said, "would appear to show that the Soviet premier realizes that his country no longer can claim any significant lead over the United States." The newspaper said Glenn's achievement "may prompt the Kremlin to adopt a saner policy in international af-; fairs," but noted that "our hopes of this have been so often dashed that it would be unwise to be too optimistic." 2 U'tH 1 carat Vi carat M carat Don't buy diamonds by weight !
