Fifty thousand persons attended the Catholic function to pray for peace. (UP Telephoto) Catholics in Philadelphia Parade PHILADELPHIA Roman Catholic men marched in solemn procession through downtown Philadelphia last night reciting aloud the rosary of tlje Virgin Mary in a public prayer for peace and conversion of the Communist world to Christianity. At the end of the line of march, a crowd estimated at gath- ered on the vast stretches of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway to as- TODAY sist at the first outdoor evening mass in the history of the arch- diocese and the second such serv- ice in the United States. The religious rally was dedicated to Our Lady of Fatima. According to Catholic teaching, the Virgin Mary appeared to a group of Por- j tugese children at Fatima on Oct. 113, 1917, and asked them to pray for peace and the conversion of Russia to Christianity. I The parkway had been converted into an amphitheater with a huge, glass-enclosed altar erected in the center of a traffic circle. Atop the flood-lighted altar stood a statue of Our Lady of Fatima, some 62 feet above street level. The Most Rev. John F, O'Hara, C. S. C., archbishop of Philadel- phia, who delivered the sermon, Big Army Chief Aim Of China By .JOSEPH ALSOP HONG KONG The news from China pours into this city in a tur- gid flood. Strength and weakness, famine and military buildup, bril- liant successes in construction and _........ failures in industry silly propa- {or prayers for local) state ganda gestures, ambitious plans, oppression, achievement, folly and these themes are tumbled together in this news from China in a pattern so strange that it sometimes seems meaningless.

Before the archbishop spoke, the Rt. Rev. John J.

Yugo- slavia also" sent a protest to the United Nations secretary general on the decision to withdraw Brit- ish and American occupation troops from Zone A of the Trieste territory and turn it over to Ital- ian administration. Yugoslavia's new demands and protest were made against a back- ground of increasing anti-American and anti-British feeling in Bel- grade. In the latest outburst an angry mob attacked a U. S. dip- lomatic official and smashed his nose. The crowd was apparently stirred by President Tito's speech in Skoplje Sunday in which he warned he would send troops marching into Trieste's Zone A "at the moment" Italian occupa- tion forces e n tered.

LOUIS Wi Ex-convict Carl Austin Hall and his girl friend signed confessions today that they took 6-ycar-old Bobby Greenlease across the state line into Kansas where Hall killed him shortly after his kidnaping in Kansas City, Mo. The government immediately moved back into the case, prepar- ing kidnaping charges at Kansas City against the 34-year-old Hall and 41-year-old Mrs. Bonnie Brown Heady. Their confessions were announced at Washington where FBI director J, Edgar Hoover said the two kidnapers had admitted digging the boy's grave behind Mrs. Heady's home in St. Joseph, Mo., before the kidnaping. Thus the couple plotted the little boy's death even before the kidnaping took place. The FBI disclosed the lime found over Bob- by's body was bought before the kidnaping.

But speaking seriously, this sometimes ludicrous and more of- ten grim news from China begins, after a while, to tell a rather clear story to anyone who studies it care- fully. It is a story that comes in ftmr parts, none of them pleasing. First, the present phase of the Chinese Communist regime is strictly transitional. The honey- moon, when the Communists were welcomed as a new force bringing order to a strife-weary land, is definitely over. This is the time of preliminary military buildup and iron consolidation of the new gov- ernment's power. Both efforts are proceeding with conspicuous suc- cess. Second, the familiar Communist process of grinding the masses to mincemeat in order to mold a new nation is utterly alienating the Chinese people.
