around and said:
“Don’t get excited. Everything
is all right.”
But right after that another
steward came around and com
manded:
“Go to your cabins Get ready
to man the lifeboats.”
We went down three decks to
our cabin, but we couldn’t get
anything from it except our life
preservers because smoke began
filling the corridors. Just then
the loudspeaker told us to go to
our number stations the ones
we had been assigned in lifeboat
drill right after we left Genoa.
Our station was the large cab
in on the promenade deck.
There were several hundred
passengers including women and
children in the first class passen
gers’ promenade cabin.
Suddenly the lights went out
and all we could see were shad
ow shapes around us.
Another priest, a Father I-am
ber! from Philadelphia (later
identified as Father A. Paul lam

Church, l^andsdoune, Pa, near
Philadelphia) began reciting the
Rosary out loud, and Falher V oj

I gave general absolution to the
group. I could hear Father lam
bert doing the same, and anoth
er priest named Father Markham
(later identified as Father Daniel
Markham of Troy, N.Y., who was
injured) and Father Wojcik.
The people appeared to have
been strengthened by the Rosary
and the confessions. There seem
ed to he less crying.
Wf looked outside through the
windows and portholes and saw
that the dense fog appeared to be
lifting a little.
After what seemed to be hours
we suddenly saw lights—many
light*--and someone shouted: “A
ship? A ship!”
People began talking, just to
keep in touch with each other.
Some even tried to joke a little.

The order finally came over
the loud speaker: “Abandon ship,
tighten your life belts, women
and children first.”
By now the deck was tilted
steeply, so we all slid down in a
sitting position down to the
evacuation doors and windows
that had been opened by crew
members. We waited for some
time at our stations beside some
lifeboats. Then crew members
first helped women and children
down Jacob's ladders over the
side to a lifeboat
And, thank God, the water was
calm.
We looked around and saw that
we were almost surrounded by
the lights of a number of ships.
We were only in the lifeboats 15
or 20 minutes then we pulled
alongside a huge liner. It was the
He de France.
Again we used Jacob’s ladders,
but this time only for a few feet.
For the holds of the lie de
France had been opened to take
us aboard, and people were giv
ing us warm soup and sandwich
es and hot coffee and blankets
and deck chairs to sit in.
When the sun came up, we
could see the Andrea Doria slip

A loss in the sinking of the Italian liner Andrea

by artist Lino Schenal. A triptych over the altar shows
the Madonna of the Rosary, with St. John the Baptist at
left, and St. Goorge at right, the latter two both patrons
of Genoa, Italy, where the 29,000 ton liner was built.

Church Could Remain Aloof
In his address to 4.000 mayors
and heads of provincial admin
istrations of the Democratic
Christian party meeting in Rome,
the Pope obviously referred to
the several political battles of
(he past years in Italy and other
European countries where the
elections have been in great Tart
contests between Christian and
non-Chnstian forces. Although
the Church has not taken any of
ficial stand, it has exerted indi

ests of Christianity were threat

"If all exerted themselves,"
th* Pontiff said, "so that the
Gospel* were th* highest fer

If in their dissension* and re

leave out of their discussion*
th* rights which God ha* over
men and the world end would
limit themselves rather to th*
different way* of building with
in the human structure a soci
ety which would be essentially
Christian, then th* Church
could remain outside ef
strife and avoid siding
one or th* other party.
The Holy Father seemed to re
fer to the problem of coopera
tion between Christian political
forces with communists and their
socialist allies—a problem exist
ing in many parts of the world
where the absence of a clear ma
jority seems to demand compro
mise for exercising successful
government.
“There are not lacking,” the
Pontiff continued, “those who
seek impossible approaches, de
luding themselves about the va
riety of changeable, expedient
tactics, and forgetting at the
same time the inacceptability of
the unchangeable final aims.”
The Pontiff then developed the
requirements of a politician who
openly declares himself to be

Finally the Holy Father stated
that men and things, structures

“To be a Christian,” the Pope
said, “means to know the truths
of th* Faith deeply and organ

firmly because they have been
