social features March 4, except pos

other members -of his family..
Mr. Harding said he did not expect
to celebrate his accession to .the

forms. He has made no plans to
have Mrs. Wilson return to the White

The inaugural plans have not been
worked out In detail, but he declared
they "were certain to be much more

Prevailing Opinion in Vatican Cir
cles- Is That United States'
Quota May Be Raised.
ROME, Feb. 10. (By the Associated
Press.) Archbishop Dougherty of
Philadelphia will succeed to the next
American cardinalate, according to
the view held in Vatican circles.
Tho appointment will be made
early in March.
From 177 5 to 1911 America had
only one cardinal. Pope Pius X in
the consistory of 1911, increased the
number to three.
Pope Benedict has preserved the
tradition of Plus X, by keeping the
number at three, but as the United
States is the third Catholic power in
the world, following after Italy and
France, the prevailing opinion has
been that the cardinalates in the
United States would be increased.
-Italy has 21 cardinals out of 57;
Spain with 20,000,000 Catholics has
four and will have six, while tne
United States with the Philippines,
Porto Rico, Guam and Hawaii, total
ing more than 24,000,000 Catholics,
will have but half of Spain's repre
sentation. The sacred college after the March
consistory will number 63, of which
30 cardinals will be Italian. Seven
red hats will be unassigned, the full
quota of the sacred college being 70,
though this Is never attained, each
pope desiring to leave some vacancies
for his successor to fill.
