Some newspapers here also attrib ute the peace move of Pope Beneaict to Austrian influence, while others are refraining from passing any com ment until an official version is puo lished. Indications are that the terms are unacceptame to the En tente. The -imes, leading English news paper, expresses astonishment at the Vatican's ignorance of the opinions held by the Allies and the United btates.
