LONDON, (JTA) — On the
eve of the opening of the con-
troversial play "The Repre-
sentatives" — which is now be-
ing performed in other
countries under the title "The
Deputy" — in
which the late
Pope Pius XII
is presented
as having ab-
stained from
against the
Nazi annihila-
tion of Jews,
the Nobel
Peace Pr iz e
winner Dr. Al-
bert Schweit-
zer said in a
statement that k
not only the
Church b u t
also the Prot- L .
estant Church Schweitzer
"was guilty in her simple ac-
ceptance of the persecution of
the Jews."
Declaring that the play is "a
judgement on an historical fig-
ure who invited the greatest
responsibility upon himself,"
Schweitzer said in his statement
released by the Royal Shake-
speare Company, which is pre-
senting the play at the Aldwych
Theater, that it "is not only an
historical judgement but an
alarm call to our age which is
sinking' into inhumanity and un-
"We are all guilty today for
the reason that we were all
guilty then," he stressed. "The
Catholic Church bears the
greater guilt, because as a great
international organization, she
could have taken some action,
but the Protestant Church, too,
was guilty in her simple ac-
ceptance of the fearful, inhu-
manity of the persecution of
the Jews."

GENEVA, (JTA) — The first
performance in Switzerland of
"The Deputy," the German play
claiming that the late • Pope
Pius XII failed to take a stand
against the Nazi genocide of
Jews, took place at the Basle
Municipal Theater under the
protection of more than 100
The police were called in
after the theater management
received anonymous letters and
telephone calls threatening
bomb explosions in the theater,
a synagogue and a Masonic
lodge if the play was performed;
Written by Rolf Hochhut, the
play contends that' the late Pon-
tiff did not adequately oppose
the Nazi wartime slaughter of
European Jewry.

Augustin Cardinal Bea is about
to resign from his post as presi-

Cardinal Bea, who is 82, is
known to be a great friend of the
Jews and is one of the foremost
proponents for closer Christian-
Jewish relations.

Jewish relations submitted by
the World Jewish Congress to
the Ecumenical Council which
resumed its meeting Sunday at
Vatican City was discussed in
London by A. L. Eastherman, di-

Pope Paul Has Regard for Jewry;
Temple Memorializes Pope John

ROME, (JTA) — Non-Chris-
tian belivers in one God — such
as Jews and Moslems — were
assured' by ' Pope Paul VI • of
his esteem and of their inclu-
sion in the thoughts of the
Catholic Church, in the dis-
course which the Pontiff de-
livered at the opening of the
second Edumenical Council Vat-
ican II, Sunday. He declared:
"The Catholic Church looks
beyond her Own sphere and sees
those other religions which pre-
serve the sense and notion of
the one supreme, transcendent
God, creator and sustainer, and
which worship Him with acts
of sincere piety and base their
moral and social life on their
belief and religious practices.
"It is true that the Catholic
Church sees in such religious
omissions, insufficiencies and
errors which cause her sadness,
yet she cannot exclude them
from her thoughts and would
have them know that she es-
teems what they contain of
truth and goodness and human-
