II Airmen Die in B-50 Crash New Trial Granted Shetsky Statements Of Trial Judge 'Prejudicial' Decision of State Supreme Court Unanimous St. Paul A new trial for I Rubin' Shetsky of Minneapolis, 'serving a life term in Stlllwater prison, was ordered today by the Minnesota supreme court. In a unanimous decision the court ruled that Shetsky's constl-j tutional rights were violated by the "prejudicial" statements of Judge Paul S. Carroll in Hennepln county district court. Shetsky was convicted ol the shooting of Albert Schneider, Min- neapolis labor organizer, at the Casablanca cafe in Minneapolis the night of July 27, 1945. He fled during the trial. His trial was completed and he was sentenced in his absence. He was apprehend- ed 18 months later in Los Angeles and was taken directly to prison. As a result of the decision, Shet- sky will be transferred from the Stillwater institution back to the Hennepln county jail to await trial as soon as the necessary formalities are completed. Indications were, however, that those formalities will not be completed before Christmas. Chief Justice Lorlng, who wrote the decision, cited rulings of the United States Supreme court, the United States circuit court of ap- >eal3 and 'several state supreme courts, including Minnesota's, to back the findings In which the oth- er six Justices concurred.

BuyCHRISTMAS SeALS, The Pope, in his annual Christmas message, addressed to the whole world on the eve of the 1950 Holy year. There seemed little doubt that the address was an invitation to all those professing Protestant faiths to join with the church of P.ome. This coming Holy year, the Pontiff said, "must be deci- sive, especially for the longed- for religious renewal of the modern world." "Oh that this holy year could welcome also to the great return to the one true church, awaited over the cen- turies, of so many who, though believing in Jesus Christ, are for various reasons separated from he said. "If, on other occasions, an invitation to unity has been sent forth from this apostolic see, on this occasion we re- peat it more warmly and pa- ternally. "For all those who adore Christ not excluding those who sincerely but vainly await His coming and adore Him as the one promised by the pro- phets and still to come do we open the holy door and at the same time we extend a welcome from the heart of a father whose fatherhood in the inscrutable design of God has come to us from Jesus the Redeemer." The Pope also expressed hope that those who have been members of the Roman Cath- olic church and have strayed away would return to the fold like the prodigal son. The Pope expressed a hope for unity within the church and said, "the holy door, our arms and our heart" will be opened for all. "May this jubilee mark the return of all humanity to he declared. The Pope made a strong plea for social justice, asking both social systems of capitalism, and he did not mention them by to return to Christianity and legitimate liberties and rights. He criticized the negation of fundamental rights and the en- slavement of men to totalitar- ian states. The Pope expressed the hope that the 1950 holy year will be a year of peace and not ol war, a year of justice and not of national egoism. He encour- aged workers to defend their "just aspirations" but said the possession of material wealth without faith in God is of little use. The Pontiff declared the church had made advances in some parts of the world, par- ticularly in Africa. But he said Christians can- not ignore the grave dangers which religion faces in some countries of Europe and pros- trate China. Tomorrow the Pope will mount the steps of St. Peter's before an anticipated crowd of between and gathered to witness the opening of the 25th holy year in the church's 20 centuries of exist- ence.
