Quick Selection Of Pope Predicted As Balloting Begins Continued from Page One nouncement will occur simultaneously with the centuries-old tradition of having the caidmal deacon give the mime of the newly elected Pope from St. Peter's Cathedral to thousands gathered below. It was the general opinion today that the new Pope would be announced by the cardinal dean from the balcony of St Peter's Friday or Saturday at the latest. Saturday morning is considered the latest date likely, but if two-thirds majority is not obtained by that time then the conclave will probably have reached such a deadlock that it may take at least a week to break ii, The majority of Vatican observers believe, however, that owing to political schisms in the world today, the Siicred College is determined to show a united spiritual front. For this reason more than any other, church quarters agree that the new Pope will be chosen swiftly. At least an hour is expected to elapse between the actual election m the sistine chapel and the public announcement. The new pontiff will be asked by the dean, in the name of the Sacred College, if he accepts. If his reply is in the affirmative, he will then say "acepto." Immediately all of the cardinals will rise and lower the canopies over all thrones except the one of the new Pope. Tne new pontiff will then inform the cardinals the name he will assume as Pope. The dean of the conclave wll submit to him the official account of the election which he will sign. He will then be conducted to a small room off the chapel. W. H. Leonhardt Goes To Builer Store W.
