unity Hell note his newspaper that mokes oil North lowons neighbors MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY NOVEMBER J3 W2 10c Paper Consists of Two No 544 81st birthday WILLIAM DICKINSON JR WASHINGTON A little over four yeacs after his cor onation a speck of time as measured in the life of the Roman Catholic Church Pope John XXIII has won the affectionate respect of all Christendom His belief that it is better to stress what unites rather than what divides strikes a responsive chord with in his church and outside it This is not to mask the dif ferences in dogma which divide Christianity into thelogically warring camps But in the per son of the present Pope Chris tians of all persuasions have noted traits of gentleness com passion ready acceptance of life and patience with mans frailty that have a universal appeal Amjelo Cardinal Roncalli was elected 262nd Ro man Catholic Pope on the lllh ballot taken by the Sacred Col lege of Cardinals Oct 28 1958 less than a month before hisi 77th birthday He took the name John XXIII reviving a papal title out of use since the death of John XXII in 1334 Some observers thought his advanced age would militate against a vigorous reign some even referred to the new Pope as a stopgap choice to suc ceed the late Pius XII It became apparent soon after his coronation Nov 4 1958 that age had not eroded his zeal for work Laboring within tradition he would not be bound by it First to fall was the unwritten rule that Popes should never leave the Vatican Just two months after he became Pontiff he visited Romes city jail At least a century had passed without a Papal visit to such an institu tion before Pope John revived the custom To mark his 80th birthday last year he made his 100th excursion outside the territory of Vatican City No one will be surprised if before long he becomes the first Pope to travel outside Italy since Pius VII went to Paris in 1804 for the coronation of Napoleon This years birthday observ ance on Sunday has special im portance because it comes as the first Roman Catholic ecu menical council in nearly a century nears the end of its first phase Vatican Council II as it is called opened Oct 11 and will go into recess on Dec 8 The second session will be gin next May 12 and continue for seven weeks ending on June 29 Many of the prelates were said to haye hoped for either an early resumption in January or at the latest on April 21 one week after Easter The unhur ried pace of the deliberations of the 70 schemata topics only the discussion on liturgy has been completed has given rise to talk that the ecumen ical council may require five years or more to finish its work Speaking of his ecumenical council Pope John has said a slow path is often the safest and surest As the Pope of Unity he is less interested in speed than in accomplishment But when the council bogged down on a liturgical question he exercised his own authority to decree that the text of the canon of the Roman Catholic mass be revised for the first time since the seventh cen tury i FATAL RAIL CRASH CHANDLER Tex Cotton Belt freight train hit a loaded fuel oil truck in down town Chandler Friday setting off an explosion and fire that en gulfed the

waited out the tense nine day period of a ceasefire before Red China begins its promised militarypullback The Chinese too were believed consolidating and reinforcing the startling gains they made in the rugged mountain border areas in 32 days of undeclared war before they proclaimed and put into ef fect a ceasefire at midnight Wednesday Tacitly accepting the ceasefire Indian troops were reported under secret orders to hold their fire unless fired upon But Prime Minister Nehru refrained from taking a stand on Pekings pro posals for ending the conflict Red China said she would begin pulling her troops back on Dec 1 But what would happen then was far from clear Pekings pro posal was widely regarded as an ultimatum which would force In dia to yield the high Ladakh Plateau on the western ehd of her border in return for regaining most of the lost border areas ir the northeast Adopting a waitandsee atti tude the Indian government went ahead in the lull with emergency measures to put its forces into a better military po sition after suffering smashing blOWS Nehru still talked of a long hard war In his first public speech since the ceasefire he took no notice of Pekings declarations He called on Indians for a sense of sacrifice to makCp the country great and to defend hard won freedom Word here that the Chinese may be consolidating their posi tions awaiting the outcome of the ceasefire may haye been based on aerial reconnaissance So far there has been no aerial fighting bombing or strafing by either side The Chinese said the ceasefire would be followed by withdrawal to approximately the
