Pope Pius Intensifies
His Peace Efforts; Bishops Plan Talks By the Associated Press. LONDON, October 26.—Pope Pius XII has intensified his efforts to bring about peace, the Vatican ra dio said yesterday, as other advices indicated Catholic bishops in Ger many and Northern Italy were pre paring conferences for reasons not announced. The last few days have brought reports that the Pope has talked with the American. British and French envoys to the Holy See, which is under German guard. Thpse reports have set off specula tion on the possibility of making Rome an -,open city.” Another Vatican report last night, also recorded by the Associated Press, said Cardinal Schuster of Milan had called the bishops of Lombardy, in Northern Italy, for a conference. Seizure Indicated. Indications from Cairo and Switzerland a few days ago were that the cardinal and a number of priests had been taken into cus tody by the Nazis as a result of sermons denouncing the antiracial measures of the German authorities! in Northern Italy. Earlier the German International ^ Information Bureau had reported that Catholic bishops in the Reich would hold a conference in Berlin early in December, their second this year. Just what the relations between the Pope and his Nazi "protectors” are were not clear in the numerous reports. Step lTp Propaganda. The Germans have stepped up their propaganda to the world that; the Pope was given a free hand after two Catholic archbishops— Francis J. Spellman of New York j and Richard Downey of Liverpool—: charged that the Germans were holding the Pope a virtual prisoner. The latest rumor out of Lisbon to the London Evening Standard: said there was a strong possibility j that, the Holy See would be vacated and that the Pope would remove himself to Toledo, seat of the Span ish primate. The Lisbon dispatch said that con versation along these lines has been going on for some time with Span ish authorities. Psychiatrist Defends Esquire's Varga Girls Esquire Magazine's emphasis on sex was defended yesterday by a Yale psychiatrict, who declared “'There is nothing indecent about sex'' Dr. Clements C. Fry acknowledged that such reading material offends some people but "there are some people who won’t talk about any thing." It is "unfortunate," he said, that sex is not regarded by most people as a normal topic for con versation. Questioned about features of the Varga girl drawings," Dr. Frye said he believes an artist "lias a right to use his imagination" and that in many respects the girls’ figures are entirely true to life. The professor, testifying for Es quire at a Post Office Department hearing to determine whether the magazines second-class mailing privileges shall be revoked, said he saw nothing lewd about the scanty costumes on the Varga girls. "Why, I can remember." he said, "as a boy at Asbury Park in. J.) how the crowds followed the first , girl to fake her stockings off at tha beach. These Varga girls might attract attention at a beach and they might not." Central California Jolted by Sharp Quake 'hp Associated Pres.?. SAN FRANCISCO.

NEW YORK, Oct. 26.—Admission by a German air attache in Stock holm that a Nazi plane had shot down a Swedish air transport last Friday, causing the deaths of 13 persons, including an American, brought sharp reaction from the Swedish press today, the Office of War Information said. Although the German official was quoted in broadcasts recorded here by the United States Foreign Broad cast Intelligence Service as express ing "deep regret” over what he said was "a mistake,” leading Swedish newspapers called for a re-examina tion of the agreement allowing Ger many to fly courier planes over Swedish territory. The air transport was shot down off the west coast of Sweden en route from England to Stockholm. The Swedish radio said Sweden “will take up the matter through diplomatic channels in Berlin.” The Stockholm Dagens Nvheter, according to OWI, said that "some thing else besides protests and apol ogies is required—something that will obviate similar disasters and cause the Germans to behave dif ferently toward neutral countries.” The Stockholm Social Demokraten said the incident “cannot fail to af ; feet Sweden’s attitude toward Ger man courier plane traffic.” The Swedish people are “deeply shocked.” the NYA Daglight Alle handa said, “and if no satisfaction: can be gained in any other way, Sweden must consider the advis-1 ability of putting an end to a cer tain kind of foreign air traffic over Swedish territory.” Mrs. Allen B.
