The Bishop of Berlin was graciousness itself. After making it clear that he did not wish to discuss any matters that had political connotations, he spoke freely and fluently in English. Al- ways, though, the conversation came back to three things--food, clothing, especially shoes, and bicycle tires. Yes, the Cardinal has numerous problems in post-war Berlin, where many churches are destroyed or badly damaged, and where an in- flux of refugees has greatly in- creased the Catholic population, even while the total population has decreased. But it is about food, clothing and the bicycle tir that His Eminence talks feelingly.

Yes, the Cardinal has numerous problems in post-war Berlin, where many churches are destroyed or badly damaged, and where an in- flux of refugees has greatly in- creased the Catholic population, even while the total population has decreased. But it is about food, clothing and the bicycle tir that His Eminence talks feelingly.

(By R adio)--Notable recent progress in relations between the Vatican and the people of China was emphasized by His Holines Pope Plus XI as he received the ere- dentiais of Dr. John C. H.

The Holy Father referred to the naming of the first Chinese Cardi- nal, the establishrhent of the Chi- nese Hierarchy, the canonization of the Boxer Rebellion Martyrs, the sendingto China of an Apostol- is Internuncio, and the'action of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek in sending for the" first time a Chi- nese Catholic as h;s country's re- presentative at the Vatican as concrete examples of this pro- grass. "As the colonnade of the Vati- can opens its large arms toward the Est," the ]Pontiff stated, o we now lift our hands tow- rd the Orient and invoke the protection of the Almighty over the rugged and ardous journey the Chinese people from the twilight to a dawn which we hope I11 soon shine forth in a cure internal and external peace."

Editorial. Implied Dslerimination "The editorial implies that the majority of the court has upheld a discriminatory Sbate law," Archbishop Ryan wrote. "This simply is not true. The facts in the case clearly show that the only parents requesting bus serv- ice for their children were the parents of public school and Cath- olic school children. The record in i the case gives no indication that the parents of children attending Lutheran or Episcopalian schools or other private, non-denomina- tional, non-profit schools were de- nied transportation service." "Furthermore, no school board could deny transportation funds to the parents of these children because the New Jersey Act reads: " 'Whenever in any district there are children living remote from any schoolhouse, tl board of ed- ucation of the district may make rules and contracts for the trans- portation of school children to and from school other than a public school, except such schools as is operated for profit in whole or in part.'

Cardinal van Preysing, who ar- rived here Thursday by airplane for a month-long visit to thank Americans for their generous as- sistance to his war-stricken peo- ple, received me yesterday at the residence of his host during his shay in this city, His Eminence Francis Cardinal Spellman, Arch- bishop of New York. The Bishop of Berlin was graciousness itself. After making it clear that he did not wish to discuss any matters that had political connotations, he spoke freely and fluently in English. Al- ways, though, the conversation came back to three things--food, clothing, especially shoes, and bicycle tires. Yes, the Cardinal has numerous problems in post-war Berlin, where many churches are destroyed or badly damaged, and where an in- flux of refugees has greatly in- creased the Catholic population, even while the total population has decreased. But it is about food, clothing and the bicycle tir that His Eminence talks feelingly.
