The plantation is in Trinidad British West Indies, and as soon as congress passes a bill recently in- w i i ? e t k b ^ Senat °l' David I.

The project, the navy says, will be self-supporting. Senator Walsh, chairman of the senate naval affairs committee said that the bill will not authorize the navy to purchase new land Only plantations and farms already acquired will be developed under its terms Specifically, the bill gives the secretary of the navy power to manage, operate, maintain and improve plantations and farms ?v' s V^, th , e =°" line » tal «»its of Distributed to Retdilers * -- ^^ *\.

The bill--which will put the navy into agriculture, apparently not in competition with domestic sources, but rather as a supplement to them--was introduced at navy request and has been cleared v the bureau of the budget alsh said. ' Main plantation concerned at present is that at Trinidad where it is included in the nava! operating base on that British-ownecl, U. S.-leased island possession.

Amleto Giovannis Cicognani, Thursday stated on behalf of the Vatican, that the papal villa at Castel Gandolfo, Italy, could not be considered a military target. The delegate issued this statement: "His eminence, Cardinal Ma- Ehone, secretary of state of his holiness, Pope Pius XII, has instructed me to state that the recent report appearing in the press and credited, to the allied high command, to the effect that the actual territory of the papal villa at Castel Gandolfo is 'saturated with Germans and therefore subject to bombing,' is not true. "His eminence declares that no German soldier has been admitted within the borders of the neutral pontifical villa and that no Ger- arc by man military whatsoever within it at present." A supplemental statement oy the information bureau of the national Catholic welfare conference added: '·In connection with the above statement, it may be recalled that according to recent information from Vatican City, they had opened the papal villa, including the official apartments, to those rendered homeless by the bombings of the surrounding area. '·The number o£ those to whom asylum was ottered .at the papal villa was estimated to have reached 15,000, mostly women and children. "Recent bombings of Castel Gandolfo resulted in the deaths of hundreds of these refugees and flic evacuation of many others. The Vatican radio on Feb, 15 stated that more than 10,000 refugees still remained at the papal villa, adding that it was not yet possible for them to go elsewhere Consequently, the broadcast said any warlike action against the papal villa not only would be a violation of its extra-territorial rights, but would imperil thousands o£ defenseless people."
