Plans Test While Gov. Wallace, 43, made plans to test the no-interference injunction aimed at him by U.S. Dist Court Judge Seybourn H. Lynne, a spokesman for the Kennedy administration in Washington indicated federal troops would be used if it became necessary to gain admission at Tuscaloosa for the two Negroes, Vivian J.

O'Connor, the rector. "Like cv- pryoi.e else, they have their favorites. You can't stop people from speculating about so extraordinary a subject." "Actually, there is no house favorite," said fourth-year theology student John Louis of Scranton, Pa. "The Italians are lalking a great deal about Cardinal Monti ni, but we here haven't settled on anyone. Whoever it is, I think, will be obliged to carry on Hie tremendous work for unity that Pope John began." The college, which draws its students from 42 states and 98 dioceses, is the main seminary in ^ome for American candidates 'or the secular clergy. It sits on Janiculum Hill, the hill of the old Roman god of war and peace, and commands a magnificent view of the Vatican.

"Later many of us hurried back to the square to pray with the crowds." There is a great buzz of excitement also over having two cardinals, James Francis Mcln- tyrc of Los Angeles and Joseph Elmer Ritler of St. Louis, living right in the house.
