Vatican: Nixon Resignation Wa: Freedom's Gain VATICAN CITY (AP) The Vatican's weekly newspaper said Thursday the Watergate affair marked a victory for freedom when Richard Nixon resigned the presidency. In an editorial signed by Federico Alessandrini, the paper's director, who also serves as the Vatican's spokesman, Osservatore Delia Domenica said: "To conceal or mask limits, weaknesses and evils of domestic nature for fear of negative external repercus- sions is a typical feature of the systems which ignore or are afraid of liberty "From the Watergate case there stemmed a question of constitutional character which left no choice open to any American political force, not even to the Republican party. The resignation has been the conclusion of a story which ends with one victor: liberty." ON THIS DATE in 1943, Danish warships were scuttled at Copenhagen in an uprising against the Nazis during World war II.
