to Pugct Sound i Plan to Pick Vatican Envoy Is Shelved Little Chance for Clarks Confirmation resident Trumans plan to establish formal diplomatic relations with the Vati can appeared Wednesday to have been shelved indefinitely The white house announced Tuesday that Mr Truman will not try to send Gen Mark WClark the holy see under any temporary arrange ment but will leave the whole matter up to the senate to decide next year Approval Dim Several senators have indicated that there is little chance of Clarksnomination as Americas first ambassador to the Vatican being approved in the next ses sion of congress Other congress men predicted that the controver sial nomination may not even be brought to a vpte Most members were unwilling to comment pub licly because the issue is so touchy Mr Truman could have as signed Clark as his personal rep resentative tothe Vatican fol lowing the late President Roose velts example in naming Myron C Taylor as his personal envoy to the holy see Or he could have set up an interim embassy manned by a subordinate diplo mat pending arrival of a full fledged ambassador Mr Truman apparently decided against any of these actions in view of the stormy controversy which resulted from his nomination of Clark in the heat of the congres sional adjournment rush last Sat One administration democrat in the senate who represents a pre dominantly Protestant state shook his head and said If he had named apersonal representative we might have stood the heat but Not Required The senator obviously referred to Taylor who as Mr Roose velts personal representative did not have the status of ambas sador and thus did not require senate confirmation The white house said Tuesday night that it could find no loop hole in an 80yearold law pro hibiting

close to the Vatican Wednesday described as a prudent action President Trumans decision against giving Gen Mark Clark a recess appointment as ambassa dor to the holy see These sources said the Vatican would prefer that the appoint ment be clear cut when and if t is made A recess appointment these sources Said would tend to as sume the status of a personal representative of President Tru man or even less definite pend ng the approving or disapprov ng action of congress The sources made it clear that the decision not to name a recess or interim representative liad for the Vatican removed a possible source of embarrassment The Vatican these sources said would lave accepted sucli a nomination with reluctance Will Start Cease Fire Talk Again By ROBERT TUCKMAN Munsan Korea and communist
