Pope Pius's Health Weakens

-The condition of Pope Pius XII
grew worse last night.
The 82-year-old head of the
Roman Catholic Church, had
rallied earlier from a coma and
partial paralysis that attended a
stroke Monday, but other symp-
toms recurred.
Then late last night a Vatican
official said flatly the Pontiff's
condition had taken -a turn for
the worse. Pressed to elaborate on
the degree of worsening, he replied
only: "I stick by what I said."
Worse Condition
A doctor close to. the situation
said the Pope was in worse condi-

tion than a medical bulletin issued
at 6 p.m. had indicated. This
source said the Pontiff actually
was still afflicted with partial
paralysis that affected his upper
body, face and speech.
There also were signs that the
Pope possibly was delirious.
Monsignor Angelo Dell 'Acqua,
Substitute Secretary of State,
visited the bedside and isaid the
Pope had asked "why the audi-
ences had been suspended."
No Audiences
The secretary indicated that he
had to insist to the Pope that
audiences were for the time being

Another indication that the
Pontiff's condition had become
more grave was the announcement
that the Vatican press office
planned to remain open through-
out the night.
A slight deterioration had been
reported in the Pope's condition
earlier in the evening.
Urinary Difficulty
Vatican sources said members
of the Papal household disclosed
the return of a urinary difficulty.

Other indications of deteriora-

Says Truce
Will Cause
Commander of Allied Forces in
South Europe said yesterday he
expects renewed Communist pres-
sure in the Middle East if the
cease-fire continues in Formosa
Vice Adm. Charles R. Brown,
Commander of the United States
6th Fleet in the Mediterranean the
past 26 months, made the predic-
tion at a National Press Club
He said United States military
leaders were not surprised at the
eruption of Communist violence
in the Far East last Aug. 23 after
tension began to ease in the Mid-
^dle East.
"When trouble quiets down in
the Far East," .Adr. Brown said,
"it is very liable to break out again
in the Middle East."
The Admiral said he does not
think an atomic war ever will
come except as some "last wild
act of despair by a desperate, tot-
tering dictatorship." But, he add-
ed, the free world must be ready
to strike back.
Meanwhile, Adm. Brown said,
the Communists will stir up
trouble which could lead to limited
non-nuclear warfare.
Adm. Brown said the 6th Fleet
is being maintained'in a state of
constant readiness to meet what-
ever threat may develop. He pre-
dicted it would remain in Medi-
terranean waters for a long time
to "encourage our friends and
dissuade our enemies."
Adm. Brown said the fast-mov-
ing 6th Fleet would be no sitting
duck in the face of an- atomic
attack. He said it is probably one
of the least vulnerable targets in
the world today.
Warn U.S.
TOKYO (da) - Red China said
today an absence of American
intrusions into its 12-mile ter-
ritorial waters and air space yes-
terday was worthy of notice.
Radio Peiping, however, broad-
cast a 24th so-called serious warn-
ing to the United States, charging
that seven American warships in-
vaded China's territorial waters
in the Amoy area, and United
States planes flew 26 sorties be-
tween 6 p.m. Oct. .6-first day of
the ceasefire-and 6 a.m. Oct. 7.
The warning with the worthy
of notice broadcast came more
than four hours later than usual.
Any enemy aircraft seeking out
the fleet for an atomic attack "is
going to have to run a terrible
gauntlet to find and get at the
particular ship he really wants,"
Adm. Brown said.

ALGERIAN QUESTION-Prof. Henry Bretton of the political

Algeria was viewed as the major threat to the success of the
recently approved French Constitution at a meeting of the Political
Issues Club last night.
"As.long as the Algerian problem is not solved, the French political
scene will continue to be unstable," Jean Carduner of the French
department emphasized.
'Wait and See'
Carduner, a French citizen urged a policy of "wait and see" in

munist planes swooped over Que-
moy and touched off a hail of
Nationalist antiaircraft fire yes-
terday, straining the Red-pro-
claimed cease-fire in Formosa
The Nationalist firing was the
first since Red China proclaimed a
week-long halt in its artillery
pounding of the offshore island
effective early Monday. No further
clashes were reported, and the
Nationalists took advantage of the
truce to push in more supplies by
air and sea.
Eight planes in'three formations
approached Quemoy at 4:25 p.m.,
the Nationalist Defense Ministry
said. They streaked over the island,
then raced for the mainland with
antiaircraft shells bursting around
them and machine gun tracers
probing the sky.
The Red planes made two passes
through a high overcast but did
not open fire.
Maj. Gen. I Fu-En, Nationalist
Air Force Intelligemce Chief, said
both jets and propeller planes may
have been involved. This raised
speculation the slower propelled
craft may have taken photographs
while MIG fighters provided cover,
The Red flights did not neces-
sarily violate the truce pledge.
Peiping's original announcement
said only that artillery shelling
of Quemoy would be suspended for
seven days. One condition, how-
ever, was that the United States
cease convoying Nationalist sup-
ply ships -to Quemoy.
Air drops were carried 'out at
Quemoy Monday night and twice
yesterday: Six Nationalist cargo
planes landed in quick succession
yesterday evening. Part: of -the
United States escorted sea convoy
that appeared three miles off Que-
moy on Monday unloaded the rest
of its equipment. Kramer reported
from Quemoy that no supplies
came :in from the sea yesterday,.

ported busy.
