United Press Correspondent. Rome, Sept. 3. Cardinal Gaicomo Delia Chiesa, archbishop of Bologne, and former assistant papal secretary of state, was today elected pope, suc ceeding the late pontiff, Pius X. The electiop was on the ninth ballot. With all of the ceremony prescribed by the century-old traditions of the Catho lic church, the new occupant of the fisherman's throne received the first adoration of the cardinals in the con clave who had balloted since Monday in the election. The new pontiff chose to be known as Benedictus XV and will later desig nate the date for his coronation. Washington, Sept. 3. Cardinal Delia Chiesa was born at Pedli near Genoa in Italy in 1854. He was or dained to the priesthood in 1878 and went to Madrid as secretary of the Nunciator in 1883, remaining there until 1887. H6 returned to Rome and acted as a minor official in the office of the papal secretary of state. In 1901 the late Cardinal Rampollo, tnen the sec retary of state, recognized his ability and promoted him to be substitute, or virtually first assistant secretary of state. Pope Pius X in 1907 appointed him archbishop of Bologne, Italy. There he remained as archbishop until he was created cardinal at the last con sistory held early this year. Cardinal Delia Chiesa is regarded here as being a man very similar to Cardinal Rampollo. It was to Card inal Rampollo that he owed the pro motion to the office of vice secretary of state, which brought him to the attention of Pope Pius and probably enabled him to get the Red Hat only seven years after he had been made an archbishop. , o o Mrs. Clara Frazier, Aurora, suicide.
