March 30 (UP) j—A Vatican City dispatch said today that the German government has begun func tioning at Eichstatt, a small town in the Bavarian Alps near Berchtesgaden, after evacuating Berlin. A carefully buried item in Osservatore Romano, official or gan of the Vatican, revealed that Msgr. Cesare Orsenigo, apostolic nuncio to the German government, held a special cele bration at Eichstatt Wednesday in observance of the anniver sary of the Pope’s coronation. Vatican household sources pointed out to the United Press in Rome that Orsenigo recently expressed his intention of leaving Berlin to follow the Hitler gov ernment to its new temporary •capital. The dispatch thus constituted the most authoritative indication yet that Adolf Hitler has written off Berlin as capital of Germany for a last stand in the Bavarian and Austrian Alps surrounding his mountain-top home at Berch tesgaden.
