A Hungarian priest who arrived in Vienna from Budapest last week brought a report that a Russian heart specialist is seeing Cardinal Mindszenty almost daily. •
The Cardinal is said to be in a critical condition.
Cardinal Mindszenty's new prison is a building in Koebanya, a Buda pest suburb. He was taken there after being brought back recently from the Tatra Mountains.
This building, said the priest, is surrounded by barbed wire, and a searchlight battery has been posted in order to foil any attempt to free the Cardinal.
