The Globe and Mail of Toronto called Vatican City one of tile world's great clearing houses for diplomatic news and said: "That Canada's foreigin service would be greatly strengthened by the ap- pointment of a Minister to the Vat- ican is not open to argument." The Examiner Qf Pelerborough, Ont., asserts that information rel- ative to world affairs often reaches the Itoly See before it is in the tiands of other chancellories. "No ilistorian or student of world af- fairs has ever permitted himself to under-value the political and eco- nomic acumen of the Vatican Sec- retariate . . . A Canadian Minis- ter cpuld join the diplomatic corps at the Vatican with great advan- tage to this country." L'Aetion Catholique, French lan- guage daily of Quebec, pointed out that the last two countries to name orificial representatives to the Holy See were lndia and Egypt, the first being made up mainly of Buddhists and the second of Mos- lems. Yet Canada, more than forty per cent Catholic, has no repre- sentative at the Vatican. The edi- torial concluded by showing that no one has done more for peace than the Holy Father. "Canada, Catholic and non-Catholic, thinks too much like the Pope on the gerat peril that menaces the world not to join with him and many oth- er nations." U. S. REPRESENTATION AT VATICAN URGED BY LANDON FORT WORTH, Texas.--(RNS Alfred Landon, 1936 Republican presidential nominee, declared here that the United States should have v, diplomatic representative at the Vatican because tile Catholic Church "is the only Christian body that is really organized on a world-wide scale." Landon said there are some things about tile Catholic Church he ds not like, "just as there are some things about my own Meth- odist Church that I don't like." But, he added, dislike of certain types of governments does not constitute a good reason for refus- ing to maintain diplomatic rela- tions with tl|em. BISHOP JULES JEANMARD of Lafayette has been made a Com- mander of the French Legion of ltonor, according to a notice re- ceived by the Bishop from Ilenrl Bonnet, French Ambassador in Washington. Lionel Vasse, French Consul General in New Orleans, will make tile presentation of the honor which expresses "the grtti- 'rude of the G.overmfient of France for inestimable services rendered for so many years for the promo- tion of French culture and Franc0- American friendship." .
