Pope to Appeal for Cessation of Violence in Palestine

Download PDF for this date

POPE PIUS, IT WAS RELIABLY LEARNED TODAY, INTENDS TO APPEAL FOR THE HALTING OF VIOLENCE AND BLOODSHED AND SAFEGUARDING OF HOLY PLACES IN PALESTINE AT THE NEXT CONSISTORY OF THE COLLEGE OF CARDINALS. HIS PRONOUNCEMENT WILL NOT TOUCH ON THE CAUSES OF THE PALESTINE CRISIS.

THE FACT OF THE ANTICIPATED ELEVATION OF ARTHUR SHINSLEY, ARCHBISHOP OF WESTMINSTER, TO CARDINAL IS REGARDED AS INDICATING THAT THE VATICAN WILL AVOID MAKING ADDITIONAL DIFFICULTIES FOR GREAT BRITAIN AND WILL CONFINE ITSELF TO THE SAFEGUARDING OF THE HOLY PLACES.

THE SEMI-OFFICIAL OSSERVATORE ROMANO PUBLISHES TWO ARTICLES ON THE TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF THE BALFOUR DECLARATION. THEY GIVE THE HISTORY, AN ANALYSIS AND VARIOUS OPINIONS ON THE DECLARATION. THE ARTICLES ARE MODERATE IN TONE AND ENDEAVOR TO GIVE AN IMPARTIAL ACCOUNT OF THE ARAB AND JEWISH ATTITUDES TO THE DECLARATION.
