William Randolph Hearst, Ameri

the Basilica of St. John Lateran
in Rome. This is a simple medal
and not an award from Pope Pius

This clarification came In con

Vatican secretariat of state deny
ing a Moscow radio statement
that ihe "highest papal honor"
had been given the publisher.
The Vatican broadcast said:
"As is seen, radio Moscow
bases its accusations against the
Pope and the Apostolic see on lies
and pure invention."
A report of a papal award to
Hearst was made to reporters
Sept. 19 and 20 by the Rev.
George Yahn, representing Bish

been given the order of St. Syl

would be presented Nov. 10 in
St. John's cathedral, Fresno,
Father Yahn said the award
was made in recognition of
Hearst's aid in restoring old mis
