Official Vatican sources said that when Cardinal Bea approached during the initial homage by the cardinals in the Sistine Chapel Friday, Pope Paul expressed great pleasure with the secretariat's work and said he wanted it continued. Such an endorsement is known in the Vatican as a papal "pla- cet" fit is pleasing)—an official though unwritten stamp of ap proval. he said. i "He \vishes to see evolve, in the direction of a more cordial and beneficent collaboration, their relations with the Holy See." Pope Paul's words seemed to be directed beyond the nations represented by their ambassadors at the meeting. The United States and the Soviet Union are among the nations having no diplomatic relations with the Vatican. However, the Pope's first meeting with a chief of state from abroad will be with President Kennedy on July 2. He pledged that the Vatican under his reign would not interfere in "the affairs or in the interests deriving from temporal powers." But while Pope Paul promised no interference in temporal affair of the world's nations, he said that "one of the duties of the Pope—to which our unforgettable predecessor conferred a singular splendor—is to contribute to the affirmation of peace founded as Pope John XXIII proclaimed with authority on the four pillars of' truth, justice, love and freedom.' 1 "Following his example, we plan to undertake in this domain all that depends on us," he said. From Pope John The four pillars Pope Paul referred to were outlined in Pope John's encyclical "pacem in terns"—peace on earth. Pope Paul, speaking flawless French as he addressed the assembled diplomats, said the Roman Catholic church favors principles of humanity and civilization on which are "based the harmony of international rights and obligations." "On their observance depends for the great human family the establishment of a true peace, that incomparable but always threatened treasure of individuals and peoples," he said. Pope Paul seemed at ease among the diplomats. Many were old friends from the days when he was Giovanni Battista Montini, Vatican pro-secretary of state. After speaking from his throne, he walked among the diplomats and chatted with almost everyone. It was a busy morning for the new Pope, elected scarcely 72 hours earlier. Before receiving the diplomats, he held a special audience for the priests of Rome in the Gementine Hall. At the end of the audience, Found Hanged At Edivardsville EDWARDSVILLE—An inquest is pending into the death of Julius B. Werner, 49, a railroad engineer, who was found hanged with a clothes line about 12:30 p.m. Sunday in a wooded area near his home on Rte. 159, four miles south of here, police said. Werner, a World War II veteran, had been under treatment for a nervous condition and was to have reported today at a Belleville hospital for further treatment, the sheriffs office said. Members of his family became alarmed after Werner had been absent from his home and a search party of Glen Carbon police and firemen discovered the body. Sheriff's Deputies William Is Second Big Phase Of Program A preliminary report on bids on contractors on the near- million-dollar southsidc interceptor sewer is expected to provide the highlight for the meeting tonight of Alton city council's finance committee. Bids were to be publicily opened and the totals announced in the council chamber of city hall at 2 p.m. today. The southside interceptor is the second major phase of Alton's multi-million-dollar bond issue sewer improvement program to rear-h contract stage. Members of the Citizens Committee on engineering features of the sewer program were scheduled to si* in with city officials at the bid opening, and to assist city officials at the bid opening, and to assist in a subsequent analysis of the proposals. A full report on the proposals likely with comments of the city's engineers and the advisory committee will go to the city council for disposition at its regular meeting Wednesday night. To Be Present Public Works Director Paul A. Lenz said that Mayor P. W. Day, representatives of the aldermanic committee on sewers, and representatives of the consultant engineers who designed the interceptor were expected to be present at the opening this afternoon. i At that time, he said, it likely would be possible to announce only the bid totals without consideration of a number of alternates called for in the bidding forms. Full analysis to determine the lowest and best bids, he pointed out, will take considerable study which may or may not be possible in time for the finance session tonight. Immediately after the opening, he said, proposals will be checked in detail, and effect of NEW PARK GETS WORKOUT Park recently finished on Missouri side of the river at the end of 'the dam was full of cars and people Sunday, as all who could took advantage of the beau- tiful day for recreation.
