earthquake shock was felt here at 8:38

Calexico is in a sorry plight. Its
adobe structures, housing- saloons and
gambling dens, were mostly demolished.
Wooden buildings in many instances
held together, but daylight showed
their blue, gray, pink and white "false

severe quake that occurred at 1 odock

Paris. France, June 24. The Italian
government has published a denial of
charges made by the pope in his recent
interview in La Liberie, in which the
pope said he had virtually been shut off
by Italy from intercourse with enemy
nations, notwithstanding that the holy
see is neutral. The pope also claimed
his mall had been censored by the
Italian government. The official reply,
as given by the Rome correspondent of
the Havas agency, reads:
"A French newspaper has published
an account of an interview attributed
to the pope, who is made to say that as
a result of the war the relations of the
holy see with nations enemies of Italy
are in reality suppressed.

"These dispositions were extended
also to the correspondence of the dif

"Inaccurate," Saya Vatican Organ.
The Usservatore Romano, the oinciai
organ of the Vatican, publishes tne
following concerning the interview at
tributed to pope Benedict by Louis La

"To put our readers and all discern

"To cut short these interpretations
and commentaries, we recall that there
is an essential difference between the
official public documents of the uoiy

Some of the cardinals favored the
