More than a dozen young- sters who ate the sugar- coated heart shaped pills became violently ill, vomit- ing and suffering diarrhea until Sunday. Police said a number of the children pointed out the home of an unidentified Centervjlle resident as the place, where the pills were put in their trick-or-treat bags. Denies'Trick' Patrolmen called on the man and reported he flatly denied. giving the kids any- thing but lollypops. There was no charge filed imme- diately and the man was not held. Dist. Atty. J. Frank Coak- ley said he had not receiv- ed a full report but1 "if a crime has been committed, most certainly we will pros- ecute." Police received a flood of calls from complaining par- ents. After the first few, they began a systematic canvass of 250 homes in one Centerville area, waking residents and telling them to check their childrens' bags for the pills. Officers had confiscated more than 450 pills by 3 a.m. Sunday, when their search ended. The pills were taken to an Oakland laboratory for an- alysis after several physi- cians tentatively said they appeared to be a bitter aloe, a strong purgative.

Peter's Cardinal Tedeschini Federicb Cardinal Tedeschini, 85, arch- priest of St. Peters basilicai died early to- day. First reports said death was due to intes- inal cancer, 'or which he recently u n- derwent surg- ery. He 'was one of the senior members of the College of Car- dinals, having been named a prince of the church by Pope Pius XI in 1933. His death reduces the Col- lege of Cardinals to 71 mem- bers. Pope John XXIII in- creased the college to 74 a year ago after its size had been limited to 70 members for nearly 400 years. Tall, handsome and of state- ly bearing, Cardinal Tedeschi- ni won recognition for his work as the Vatican's nuncio in Spain from 1921 until 1935, a period which saw the over- grow of .the monarchy and an anti-church campaign by the Republican government that followed. His. elevation to the College of Cardinals was con- sidered to be at least partly in recognition of his work in Spain. Cardinal Tedeschini wasj )orn at Antrodoco, a mountain lamlet in central Italy. He! was ordained a priest in 1896J and soon after was called to ;he Vatican, where he rose to he office of assistant secre- tary of state.
