! if ! Two ' COURIER-POST, CAMDEN, N. J SATURDAY, MARCH 4, 1939 1 1 I Broun: , Naming of Cardinal Pa-celli as Pope Seen as Check v on Sweep of Fascism; Hope for '' Peace Indicated. seems distinctly possible that the sweep of Fascism 1 has been definitely checked, not. by some line of fortifications or airplane armada, but by the ballots cast in the Conclave of Cardinals. In its choice of a new Pope the Catholic Church has very definitely re-. . Jected the theory of isolation. Cardinal PacellL functioned ns a diplomat in his role as "Papal Secretary of State. As Pope Pius XII it is fair to assume that he, will be no ivory Tower leader of his vast congregation. In a strict sense, "isolation" is : not; within the Catholic philosophy, since the Church is international in its membership and has welcomed Into its fold men and women of all races and nationalities. But ' dispatches from abroad have Indicated that both Mussolini and Hitler desired the election of someone venerable and far removed from the world's actualities. It-would have pleased the dictators had the new Pope been a Cardinal temperamentally inclined to state spiritual doctrine without underJining the manner in' which it might-be implemented into immediate and concrete action by men and nations. Pope Pius XII has traveled widely in the service- of his Church. He has observed both the Americas at first hand and talked with our President. There may be a great significance in his choice of the name Pius, for here, at least, is a ( hint that he will follow in the footsteps of the late Pontiff in vigorously opposing the the ories of racial prejudice enun- ciated by Hitler. , Italian dispatches, before the decision of the Cardinals, indicated that Mussolini was opposed to the election of Pacelli, and already he. has been attacked by lhe controlled press of the Nazfs. Here are hopeful signs, andjt is encouraging to-remember that it was Cardinal Pacelli who was instrusted with carrying through -the peace pleas of Pope Benedict before the ending of the World War. I think that (he chance- for . peace in our own days has been improved by the fact that the spiritual leader, . of more than 300,000,000 men and women on the face of the' earth is vigorous in' mind and body. Both Catholics and non-. Catholics will pray that j his, talents and abilities will pro-. mote the kind of peace which l- can be made by curtailing the fantastic dreams and schemes of aggressor statesmen. Any other kind of peace will be written only in water which will soon change to blood. . Of course, it would be both reckless and presumptuous to j attempt any detailed predic-' tion as to the probable policies of the new Pope. But already there is palpable Indication that the Catholic Church is In ho mood to temporize or accept mandates, or""cven hints, ' from the bullies of our day, ' In its own tradition and structure the Catholic Church represents an eternal barrier to narrow . nationalism. It is committed to the great vision of universal fellowship and fraternity brought into the world by Jesus. Hitler has a plan but t wars at every point with the plan of Christ. Not even the most ar-dent. Catholic would say that "Whe Intentions of Jesus have been fulfilled to the hilt. But it is a way of life, which has endured for centuries. It will be with us when such a word as "Fascism" is forgotten. Quite recently I talked to a newspaper friend of mine who is now a priest. I said to him that I wanted to know if there was anything in Catholicism which stood in the way of any person who believed in politi-,cal and economic progressives. And my friend smiled and answered: "Don't you -realize that you're a little naive, Hey-wood? You like to call yourself a radical, but the doctrines of , the" Church to which I belong . imply so many deep changes in human relationship that when they are accomplished -- and they will be your notions will be nothing more than an outmoded pink liberalism." Whenever the Church militant begins to march there is no force in the armaments of, dictators which can stay . its progress. HEYWOOD BROUN. LOCAL WEATHER REPORT V. S. Weather Bureau. Philadelphia.

Europe Sees Even AIMS OF DICTATORS HELD DETE Increase in Democratic Arms Intensifies Pressure for i Future Negotiations j I Editor's Nqte: This is the sixth and concluding dispatch in the series on the design of peace since Munich. By JOE ALEX MORRIS j I'niled I'ress Foreign w Editor Europe has about an even chance of avoiding war in 1939. That is the off-the-rec'ord opinion of diplomats" who have given their views to correspondents abroad in numerous private conversations in the five months since the peace or Munich. A composite of those views, as contrasted to public declarations which necessarily are colored by political considerations, would be something like this: ! Fundamentally, the question or war or peace depends on whether the so-called dictatorial nations Germany, Italy and Japan--are seeking meerly equality with the democratic bloc or whether they expect to dominate the world by force. I There may be threats and coun ter-threats, international crises and economic wars, out in tne pattern of peace that issue is most likely to be the "fighting line ' on wnicn me great powers will stand in the coming months. Cause of Tension Increases At Munich five months ago,the struggle of the dictatorial or "have not" nations for a greater share in the world's wealth built up a war hysteria that came close to starting major conflict, bince Munich, the fundamental underlying causes of tension have continued and, In some ways, been intensified. Thus, the reason or basis of con flict remains as great or greater than before the four big European powers met at Munich.i But there s nhis difference the nations forming what .we call .the demo cratic front have armed to resist. British army, air and navy ex penditures are shooting up to marks unprecedented since the World War. France has speeded un the training of reserves for Europe's most formidable army Tower of Arms shifted Those and other developments have re-established the European balance of power, which had been top-heavy in favor of Britain and France for more than a decade after the World War, but which swung suddenly in favor of Ger many and Italy after 1935 because of the peculiar circumstances sur rounding creation or a great Nazi air force. " There has been a powerful re flection of this situation in the in creasingly stern statements made publicly by leaders of. the democratic bloc. There are three main dangers of war under the present circumstances. First, a "preventive war" by the powerful democratic nations on the grounds that it is necessary to crush the dictatorships now in order-to avoid being crushed later. This possibility is exceedingly remote. . ; Second, an accidental frontier clash that would Atouch off the highly developed preparation for war against the will of all concerned, j Third, an Internal explosion In one of the. dictatorial nations that would force that nation's leaders to attempt a risky military adventure in order to remain in power at home. i Fourth, a considered decision by the dictatorial bloc that the threat of a vastly destructive war agaiq would force the democracies to givl, way as they did at Munich. i ' LAND ARBITERS SEND MEXICAN CLAIMS FORMS El Paso, Tex: (UP) The Agra rian Claims commission has sent 200 questionaries to Americans involved in Mexican farm land expropriation as the first step in. determining payments the Mexican government shall make to American land holders whose property has been seized. When the questiannaires have been returned L. M. Lawson and Gustavo P. Serrano, American and Mexican commissioners respectively, will sit as a fact-finding board in Mexico City to fix the value of the land expropriated by Mexico. Lawson and Serrano returned recently from Mexico City. where they organized their respective sections of the claims commission. In the meantime, Lawson, boundary commissioner in El Paso, has returned to his job supervising projects being carried out by the Lboundary commission on the bor der notably the $4,000,000 canalization project of the Rio Grande river. The largest number of farms affected by agrarian seizures are on the West Mexican coast and near Vera Cruz. The work of the commission is scheduled to be completed by June 1, 1939. . The Mexican government has agreed to pay $1,000,000 a year until the amount set by the commission has been paid. j PAST AND PRESENT LINK TRIPS OLD-TIME COWBOY Butte, Mont.

Leader Asks Rejection of Hague (Continued from Tage One) precede creation for Hague, Jr., of a place upon our highest court has, I believe, awakened a sudden and resentful public consciousness of the degree, to which jwe are permitting some to trifle with our highest court. j ; "The Hague, Jr., appointment, in my opinion, is the quintessence of misuse of the machinery of our po litical system, it cannot fail m deadly way to be productive of popular distrust of our high judi ciary when confidence tin and re spect for our tribunals needs to be maintained at the highest pos sible level. ! Termed Final Straw "There always is a final straw which breaks the camel's back. If there exists public suspicion that it is possible to 'pack'! our courtsJ and subject them to political manipulation, - this appointment will serve to confirm that suspicion in a harsh, blunt and very unpleas ant way. - - ', "If there ever' was a judicial appointment which is against pub lie policy for very obvious reasons, this is such a one. "The people of New Jersey want very much to believe in their court system. It is important that they should. One very good way in which to reaffirm that their confidence in the New Jersey judiciary is not misplaced would be for .the benate to reject this appointment. Meanwhile, Governor Moore re fused a request by the New Jersey Civil Liberties Union to withdraw the nomination. In a reply to the organization, Moore. said: "I regret that I cannot subscribe to the doctrine that a-free - born American citizen should not have the right to work out his own : salvation and prove his mettle." Archey IX ' Ball, , chairman of the organization, wrote the Gov ernor, declaring appointment of the son of the Jersey City Mayor and Democratic state, leader "is no less than a most bra2en disregard of the rights and needs of the entire public." Discredit to Court Seen "We urge you to reconsider and withdraw this appointment," Ball continued. "We assure you that the seating of such a person in our court of errors and appeals 1 must necessarily discredit that pourt. the entire judicial system Under which it operates, ; not necessarily because of any act or deficiency of the appointee, but purely because of his affiliations." i. Ball ! identified young Hague as one who is not merely Hague- endorsed, but is actually a member of the immediate Hague family." He declared that "in view of the long and notorious Hague record of curtailment of civil liberties and anti-labor action and legislation, no Hague - endorsed candidate can possibly receive or retain public confidence." Confirmation Indicated The spokesman said his organization wished to remind the Gov ernor "that it is essential to the well-being of the State that our judicial system receive and retain the most Implicit confidence of the entire community." Opposition to the nomination has come largely from labor-supporting organizations. Senate leaders have considered a public hearing, but say objections to the younger Hague have not appeared sufficient to warrant such procedure. anere are indications the name will be reported favorably by the judiciary committee next week and confirmation will follow a week later.'- SIGHTLESS MAN SKATES AND SKIIS SUCCESSFULLY Brookville, Pa. tUP) Buxeess Harold W.

By REYNOLDS PACKARD - United Press Staff Correspondent Vatican City, March 4. Diplo mats throughout Europe awaited the appointment of a secretary of state by . Pope Pius XII today, in the belief that they might deduce the course 'of the hew Pontiff's world policy. There was considerable surprise when the Pope did not name his secretary of state yesterday. The delay was taken to mean he had not made up his mind regarding an appointment which was bound to be taken by the diplomatic world as of great significance. Three had been mentioned for the post. Luigi Cardinal Maglione, prefect of the Congregation of the Council, a former papal nuncio to Switzerland and then to France, was most prominently mentioned. He was regarded as second only to the new Pope in diplomatic skill. Francesco Cardinal Marmaggl, connected ;' foi? 16 years, with , the secretariat of state and later nuncio to Roumania, ' Czechoslovakia and Poland, and Federico Cardinal Tedeschini, under secretary i of state during ,the World War, and ntmcio to Madrid under the monarchy and during the early years of the republic, were the others. Vatican ' Routine Resumed - No public ceremonies were set for today and officials of the Vati can were able to get back to rou tine duties, interrupted when Pop nus xi died .Feb. 10. The new Pope held the usual set audiences. . He was understood to have received as his first visitor this morning Msgr. Dominic Tar dini, under secretary of state for extraordinary affairs. It was expected that the Pope would receive members of his fam ily today and, if he had time, take his usual hour's walk in. the Vatican gardens. Cardinals who are returning to their duties in other parts of Italy also were to bid him farewell until his corona tion, set for March 12. The Pope's first act after the conclave of cardinals at which he was elected Thursday was to tele phone his sister Giuseppinak wife of Prof. Ettore Mengarini. He was so overcome . with emotion after talking to her that he was com pelled to rest on a bed for a time Hears News on Radio The Pppe's other sister Miss Elis- abetta Pacelli, heard the. news, of the election over the' radio. She said she was not excited because she had felt he would be elected Professor Mengarini and his wife have a daughter, Maria, a widow. who has three sons including five year-old, twins. Her husband En rico Caprilli, an engineer, died on the island of Elba: last July. The Pope has also four nephews living in Rome. Three are sons of his brother Marquis Francesco Pa ceili, who died recently. One of them, Carlo, is a councillor of Vati can City. I The others, Marcantonio and Giuliio, are members of the Noble Guard of the papal gen darmene. The fourth, Arnaldo Mengarini is an engineer. It was disclosed today that Pope Pius XI had j left to his successor the chalice and gold plated platen, or shallow dish, with which he celebrated niass during the 17 years oi nis reign. It was believed that the new Pope would use them. It was said, in semi-official quar ters today that Pope Pius XII ob tained 35. votes on the first ballot in the; elective conclave. On the second, it was said he received 40 of the 42 votes necessary for a two thirds majority, and on the third he received 61 all but his own. He voted for Cardinal Granito Pigna telli di Belmbnte, dean of the Sa cred College CO-ED MATCHES MEN .

(Editor's Note: Following Is the second of a series of biographical sketches on - Pipe Pius XII.) ' By ELEANOR PACKARD (Copyriitht, 1939, United Prs) Vatican City, March 4. Msgr Pietro Gasparri gazed thoughtfully at a tall young man striding through the Vatican gardens in the last days of the reign of Pope Leo XIII.- The young man-was almost six feet tall and he walked with his hands clasped behind his back, his long face bent iri meditation. But his step was firm and, behind sil ver-rimmed spectacles, his eyes burned with determination. r CJaspari, at the start of a career leading to the robes of a cardiria and the post of papal secretary of state, was wise in the ways of diplomacy and of men. He saw i promise of great things in youth ful Eugeriio Pacelli... As. secretary of the Congregation of Extraordinary Ecclesiastical Affairs, he need ed the sharp, clear mind of Eugenio -and In return the wise old states man guided his protege far on the road that ended this week with his election as Pope Pius XII. Ability Soon Noticed Always it seemed, the young Eu genio's ability attracted the atten tion of those with whom he came in contact. And always his natural inclination toward scholarly and ec clesiastical activities, was being diverted to problems of administra tion, of worldly affairs. It had been that way when he was in school and last Thursday evening when dusk closed down on St. -Peter's Square an old man who remembered the youth's conflicting desires knelt with tears in his eyes as the new Pope solemnly gave his first blessing to the Eter nal City and to the world. "I was his teacher," 81 -year-old Antonio Nevianl related after he heard the voice of Pius XII. "I remember him I can almost see him again sitting in the second seat of the second class, his head bent over his books. Looks Into Past He hesitated and' his old eyes looked back through the years. "Yes. I always felt it." he said. "I feel that a mysterious voice told me that Eugenio would Sit on the throne of St. Peter." So Cardinal Vannutelli may have felt about Eugenio when he sup- ported the youths father, Filippo Pacelli, in urging the young man not to became a Jesuit as he desired. V So Gasparri may have felt when, after careful tutelage and encouragement by Cardinal. Vannutelli, Eugenio's work at the congregation attracted his attention. - . Set to work as an ordinary clerk In what roughly corresponds to the foreign ministry of a lay govern ment, Eugenio surprised his friends and superiors with a tremendous energy that permitted him to get through an extraordinarily heavy schedule every day. His inner energy also caused him to take a professional post at. his alma mater, the pontifical seminary of Saint Ap-polinarius. Painstaking in Duties His work at the seminary widen ed his knowledge of canonical law but he was so painstaking in his duties that Gasparri prevailed upon him to give up the extra burden in order to devote all of his time to diplomatic affairs at the Vatican. Gasparri was rapidly coming into prominence in these early years of the Twentieth Century that were forerunners of. the fame he was to acquire later in such diplomatic missions as negotiation with Pre mier Mussolini of the Lateran ac cords which ended 59 years of strife, between Church and State In Italy. Under his direction, Eugenio rose in Influence and position. He became a member of the high com mission dealing with extraordinary church affairs. Several years later, Gasparri entrusted him with his first major task which was completing and scientifically reorganizing canon law. Eugenio's contribution to this task was of great importance and Vatican officials viewed it as essential to the drawing up of a new code of canon law, which was published in 1917. During the last ypars of the reign of Pope Leo Xm, Gasparri Father Persuaded Him Against Becoming Jesuit; Authority On Canon Law Radio Plea to All elevation, Pope Pius XII delivered ,1 ihadlbeen elevated to, the College of Cardinals and made undersecretary of state. Eugenio, in return, was promised to be undersecretary of extraordinary affairs, a post in which he continued under Pope PiuS sX. Pius X, too, was impressed by the young undersecretary and he made him his personal prelate. . Student of History , In these years, Eugenio devoted almost all of ; his spare' time to studv of history and political geography. He asked Piux X for permission to resume his teaching and his request was granted. On Cardinal Gasparri's recommendation, he was given the chair of canon law I at the Pontifical Academy of Noble Ecclesiastics. These double duties, he continued until 1914 and at the same time managed to collaborate with .Cardinal GasDarri in writing books. One of these was a juridical work entitled "Person ality and Territoriality of Laws with Special Attention ,to Canon Law" It was published in 1912 and is considered an outstanding treatise on canon law. u r In1 1910, Eugenio made his first trip abroad in an official capacity -a jforerunner of his voyages to almost every part ot the world In later years as papal legate under Pope Piux XI. He was ia mernhpr of. the pontifical mission headed by cardinal Granito Pignatelli, pres ent dean of the sacred (College of uaroinais, wnicn . represented the Vatican at the coronation of Kins oeorge v and yueen Mary in London. ! Honored in 1914 When Benedict XV became Pone in 1914, he made Eugenio the sec retary general of the Holy Congregation, a post second in import ance . only to that of . papal secretary of state ! In the Vatican diplomatic branch. The fact that Benedict XV was essentially a ro- litical Pontiff made the post still more important and the Pope fre quently expressed his admiration of the 'lability and prudence of his secretary general. It ! has been a testament to the brilliance of Pius XII that every Pope entering the Vatican almost immediately gave him full confi dence and advanced him rapidly In nis career. . Benedict XV, one of four Popes under whom he served, was so gratified by Eugenio's work that he elevated him to the Arch- bishlopric of Sardi in April. 1917. and J personally consecrated him jn ceremony, at sistine Chanel where, this week 62 cardinals casd the ballot that made him Pope RUTHENIA PRESENTS OIL FIND PROMISE Chust, Ruthenia (UP). In seek ing! an explanation of the struggle now taking place between Berlin, Warsaw " and Budapest for the domination of Slovakia and Ruthe-hial the word "oil" is all important. It has been learned reliably that for years-the Dutch as well as the French have been busy investigat-irighe oil and ore deposits of Ruthenia. The results of these explo rations are not yet known except possibly 1 to an inner circle. , A rumor persists, however, that shallow boring at several points above suspected- veins and pools of oil have given promise of great wealth deeper in the ground. To the north lie the oilfields of Poland, and to the south those of Roumania. All are believed to be part of one huge geological reser-i voir which can be tapped from Ruthenia. Although the settlement of the Ruthenian question is a problem of prestige to Germany, Hungary, Poland and even Roumania, as' well as "being an ethnographic problem, below the surface of the diplomacy, just as it does .- beneath Ruthenia's mountains,. . lies the question of oil.

Washington, March 4 (UP) President Roosevelt was revealed today to- be planning a new and more vigorous appeal : for labor peace when six American Federation of Labor and Congress of In dustrial Organizations . representa tives begin another attempt to settle their three-year-old struggle. Roosevelt personally will talk to the delegates at a White House meeting, probably Tuesday, which also will be attended by Secretary Of Labor Frances Perkins. Miss Perkins said the outlook for the "peace with honor" asked by Roosevelt was "good." She would set no' date, however, for possible agreement. Roosevelt has said that the American people hope for a settlement in the "'early months" of 1939. Labor leaders generally were not as optimislic. Some of them, and at least one .
