POPE JOHN'S new encyclical has been brought before the world disarmament conference at Geneva in an attempt to "bring a new spirit" into the discussions.

The head of the Brazilian delegation, Senor Alfonso Arinos, told delegates that Pope John had "put simple truths before the consciences of the great.

"He says what everyone thinks", Senor Arinos added. "except certain governments. certain military circles, certain political assemblies or certain laboratories carefully preparing the destruction of the peace of the world."

Quoting the Holy Father's appeal for peace, Senor Arinos added that "the basic ideological contradiction which divides the world today cannot be •overcome except by an international institution . . . functioning on the principles of righteousness and the rules of justice".
