The Roman Catholics of the Irish Republican Army proclaimed a three-day cease­ fire, and Protestant extremists also were quiet. Pope Paul VI, giving his blessing to a crowd of 15,000 in St. Peter's Square, used 16 lan- g u a g e s— including Vietnamese— to wish the world "a blessed Christmas in the joy and peace of Christ." The Roman Catholic primate of Poland, Stefan Cardinal Wyszynski, speaking at War­ saw's St. John's Cathedral, called on America's Catholic bishops to make "utmost efforts to stop the bloodshed of innocent children and people" in Vietnam. In a traditional Christmas broadcast, Queen Elizabeth II called on her subjects to pray for the people of Northern Ireland. "May tolerance and understanding release the people from terror and put gladness in the place of fear," she said.

President Nixon and his wife celebrated Christmas at their Key Biscayne, Fla., home and dined with their neighbor, C.G. "Bebe" Rebozo.

Some 15,000 Christmas pilgrims streamed out of Bethlehem where Jesus was born. They attended midnight services on Christmas Eve in the Church of the Nativity, in Manger Square and in Shepherds' Field. There were no terrorist attacks, and Israel's borders with her Arab neighbors were quiet. For the first time since 1965, hundreds of thousands of West Berliners were going through the Berlin Wall for Christmas visits with relatives and friends in East Germany. But the traffic this year seemed somewhat smaller than in other years, probably because visiting rules were liberalized this year. Since June West Berliners have been allowed 30 visiting days a year in the East. Dr. K. L. Johnson Dr. J. J.
