TROY, N. Y., TUESDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 19, 1946. Published V Kxcept Su PRICE FOUR CENTS 32 New Cardinals Created, Including Four From U. S. Pope Says Real Peace Not Yet Won Vatican City Roman Catholic Church yesterday created 32 new Cardinals, the largest and most, cosmopolitan group ever raised lo tho purple in years of church history. The new Cardinals, representing 19 nations and six contintents were created at a history-malting secret consistory, the first to be con- vnued since. 19-10 and the ilrst to create new princes of the church in the seven-year reign of Pope Pius XII. Yesterday's action, which the Pontiff said }tc had "meditated for a long time" hut had not been able to carry out because of the war, brought the membership of the Cardinal Minthzcnty Coat to Rome Today lliultilWKt U.

Stresses Universality of Church. The world-wide character of tho list lent sharp point to the words of the Pope, who told old members of the Siicrcd College, behind guarded door, that by the creation of the new Cardinals "the univers- ality of the church is brought un- der a new light, since the church does not belong t.o one race, to one people, to one nation, but to all peoples of the human family." Although the Pontiff's action placed Italians in the Sacred Col- lege in the minority for the first time since the 1-Hh century, Italy will still have nearly five times as jiumy Cardinals as any other nation as against six for France. The Pontiff, in n live-minute al- locution, told the Sacred College Unit "the cessation of the conllict" liad made it possible to proceed with the crealion of new Cardinals, Imt he indicated he still was troubled over the state; of Die world. "Real he said, "is not yet chining on mankind, which is anxious and overwrought." Similar concern was reflected in (he words of some of the newly created Cardinals.
