STATUE OF LATE POPE UNVEILED

VATICAN CITY.

'I he Pope was present at a ceremony in St. Peter's Basilica on Sunday last, when a marble statue to the late Pope Pius XI was unveiled, and made a brief improvised speech.

The unveiling of the monument in the beautiful Chapel of St. Sebastian in the Basilica was attended by 15 Cardinals, other prelates and diplomats accredited to the Holy See.

The ceremony was performed by Cardinal Nasalli-Rocca di Cornegliano, the first Cardinal appointed by Pope Pius XI in the Consistory of May, 1923.
