MASON 'CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MONDAY, MARCH 13, 1939 T was borne on a portable chair in solemn procession into the basilica. In the vast throng were princes and paupers, diplomats and laborers, aristocrats and scrub women, bound by common adoration as they knelt on the cobble- mile away, i stones of St. Peter's square to hail St. Peter's, the crowning of a new holy father. Places Crown on Head The cardinal deacon of the church, Camillo Caccia-Dominioni, placed the crown with the 146 precious stones upon the head of the new pope, slowiy pronouncing in Latin. "I bestow upon you the tiara adorned by three crowns; let it ..fce known by you that you are the father of princes and kings, rector of the entire world, vicar .of Our-Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to Whom all honor and glory forever and forever is due, amen." The throng below knelt as one person in silence broken only by the bells of St. Peter's pealing the tidings to the world as the crown was placed upon the head of Pius XII. Then, as though by signal, there was a tumult of cheering thai lasted nearly two minutes. Imparts Benediction The spiritual father of one-sixth o£ the world's people rose from his golden throne, leaned across the papal white and yellow draping of the balcony and with his left hand--the emerald-studded ring of his office glittering--made the sign of the cross. The crowd again dropped to its knees. Slowly the pope imparted the benediction of "urbi et orbi"--to the city and to the world. He remained standing for four minutes acknowledging the cheers of the faithful, then retired at 1:08 j p. m. 1o the Vatican apartments where he continued his 24-hour fast of humility which began at midnight Saturday. 40 Nations Represented Witnessing Sunday's ceremonies inside St Peter's and later in the square outside were the representatives of the presidents, kings and dictators of 40 nations, including U. S. Ambassador to London Joseph P. Kennedy and his family. The prince of Piedmont represented King Victor Emmanuel of Italy. Count Galeazzo Ciano, Italian, foreign minister, represented his father-in-]aw, Premier Benito Mussolini. Five of the 6i cardinals of the s,acred college, who unanimously chose Eugenio Cardinal Pacelli as 262nd pontiff, were unable to attend because of illness, but the three American Cardinals participated in the ritual which lackec seven minutes of five hours--from 8:15 a. m., when the pope left the Apostolic palace, until 1:08 when he disappeared from the balcony. Sunday's ceremony marked the first time that a papal coronation was broadcast to the world ty radio, bringing it to all of the 335,- r 000,000 devout who might wish t hear the blessing of their spiritua father. The broadcast was mad over the Vatican's own radio station and related by a world-wide hookup. First Aid Stations Busy The long and involved ceremony was conducted smoothly despiti the crush of thousands both inside and outside St. Peter's, the age o the officiating cardinals and th delicate questions of protocol in volved. Four hospital tents outside th Taasilica and one first-aid static: in a corner of the nave itself wer kept busy, however, attending t people who collapsed. More than score fainted during the ceremony Order inside the basilica w. maintained by the Vatican nobl guards, the Swiss guards and th Palantine guards. Outside, in th square and along the broad stree leading to the Tiber, 10,000 Ita ian troops in full war kit and 1,0( Carabinieri were on duty to kee the crowds in order. The crowd in St. Peter's circu ar square and along the piazza San Fietro and other avenues eading to it was the largest ever to gather before the mother church. Long before the ceremony started an enormous crowd gathered in Risorgimento Square a mile away, awaiting admittance to Peter's. Doors Opened by Guards The doors of St. Peter's were swung open at 6 a. m., (midnight Saturday EST) by Swiss guards to admit the 55,000 persons holding tickets t,o wooden stands erected within the cathedral for the solemn high mass leading up to the actual crowning. By 7:30 at least 40,000 of the ticket holders had entered. The first people were admitted to the square at 9 a. m., 15,000 of them flooding in during the first 10 minutes. Within an hour half-million devout were in the square. Extraordinary tickets to the square, although marked "gratis," sold for as much as 530. When the pontiff left the first floor of the Apostolic palace at 8:15 for the Vestment hall he was accompanied by a retinue o] priests, lay leaders, members o] the household and noble guards At the Vestment hall, beyond the view of the waiting throng, the pontiff was greeted by the mem- ers of the sacred college of Car- nals. Officials Pay Homage He immediately changed into s vestments, a stole, a short red- old mantle and the precious mitre hich later was exchanged for the rown. In the Vestment hall the offi- a!s of the church paid homage to im who was about to be crowned hrist's vicar on earth. At 8:33 the pope seated himself the gestatorial chair and, anked by the prelates and Swiss uards, began the coronation pro- ession to the atrium of St. Peter's s the famous Sistine choir sang. On each side of the gestatorial lair secret chamberlains of the apal household carried flabellae, arge semi-circular fans with pea- ock and ostrich feathers. The hair was borne high by eight shers garbed in brilliant red damask uniforms. Fanfare Announces Arrival . The "pontiff was sheltered by a iiken canopy carried on poles by members of the Segnatura Tri- 'Unale. The procession entered St. Petr's at 8:55. The noise of the rowds outside penetrated the vast athedral as the sedia gestatoria vas borne to a small throne before he holy door of the atrium while a fanfare of silver trumpets announced the arrival of the pope. Svery detail of the rich ceremony vas carried to the crowds outside y loud speakers. The pope, stepping firmly and iolemnly, left the gestatorial chair md mounted the throne to receive he first act of adoration from the 150 canons of St. Peter's. They were led by the dean of the chap- :er who knelt and kissed the cross embroidered on the slipper of the jope's right foot and then kissed lis right hand. Members of the chapter pros- rated themselves on the marble 'loor in the order of their rank to kiss the slippered foot of the pope. The Sistine choir's hymn "Tu Es Pctrus" (Thou Art Peter) was almost drowned out by the loud cheers that greeted the pontiff as rode in splendor into the midst of the throngs. Viva il Papa!" the crowd roared. Is Carried to Altar "Viva Papa Romano!" added Romans in the throng, joyful over the coronation of a Homan-born pontiff. As he was carried slo\v]y toward the confessional altar of the hall of benediction the pontiff received a swelling, spontaneous ovation. The procession halted first just inside the door and a chamberlain holding out a small handful of burning flax at the end of a silver stick approached the pontiff, knelt and proclaimed "Pater Sancte, sic transit gloria mundi" ("Holy Father, thus passes the glory of Lhe world) as a reminder of the fleetness of earthly glory. Ritual Is Repeated The same ritual was repeated before the sacred bronze statue of St. Peter, first pope of the Holy Roman church. The big toe of the statue has been almost worn away by the reverent touches and kisses of millions of the faithful through the years. The last burning of the flax occurred before the altar itself. As he approached the altar for confession at 10:20 a. m., the pope raised his hand in blessing to the crowd, smiling benevolently. He appeared tired. Before the confession the pontiff sat for two minutes on the silk and velvet throne with its sashes of gold, receiving the adoration of the cardinals, bishops and abbots. Moves Toward Altar Then, removing the mitre from his head, he walked up the altar steps over a red carpet that was the gift of the Emperor Bonaparte and moved toward the altar with its 100 flickering tapers in candelabra made by Benvenutp Cellini. He began the mass with a confession of humility, admitting that he was a sinner and calling upon the devout to pray for him. The mitre was returned to his head by the sub-deacon and again he mounted the gcstatorial chair alongside the altar. Then, to the low Intoning of a hymn by a choir of Benedictine monks, ha returned to the altar for confession, after bathed his hands water presented to which he basin o: him by a Air lYa Listenin? COLUMBIA BROADCASTING SYSTEM NETWORK 1310 KILOCYCLES princely assistant to the throne. Serves Communion Solemn high mass followed, climaxed when the 262nd pope served himself communion in front of the throne, knelt, beat his hands on his chest humbly and recited "I am unworthy of you . . ." The mass ended at 12:25, followed by a benediction and the discharging of the vestments of the mass. The procession made its way slowly out of the hall, passing under the atrium and mounting the royal stars to the Vatican apartments where the pontiff waited until the faithful inside he basilica could move slowly into the square to witness the actual coronation. A French prelate, Pierre Cardinal Gerlier, Archbishop of Lyon, officiated at the coronation mass. The pope, surrounded by the Cardinals of the church, appeared on the central balcony of St. Peter's a few minutes after 1 o'clock. The cheers that went up were stilled only when several cardinals held up their hands for silence. After a brief prayer, the cardinal deacon approached the gold- draped throne, removed the mitre from Pius XII's head and placed the triple crown upon it. Shortly before the pontiffs appearance on the balcony the crowds in the square momentarily got out of control, rushed toward the cathedral and broke down several wooden barricades. The heavy units of Italian infantry quickly restored order, however. Chamber of Commerce quartet on KGLO Monday from 9:15 to 9:30 p. m. Left to right: Larry Reardon, Jim Archie, J. J.
