ROME, Jan. 20. (By the Asso
ciated Press.) Pope .Benedict's life
hangs in the balance today and tears
were expressed at the Vatican at noon
that his holiness was in a dying con
dition. During the early hours of'
this morning, towards 4 a. m., there
! was a sudden change for the worse
and the bronchial affection, from
which his holiness had been suffer
ing for several days, spread to his
lungs.. . ,
The pope's physicians wera In con
sultation at the Vatican at an early
hour, and the morning bulletin- is
sued afterward, indicated an. ex
tremely serious condition. Dr. - Bat
tistini. stated then that while the
condition of his holiness was grave.
it was not hopeless. . - -
About ir o'clock in the forenoon, .
however, the pope's condition be-
came aggravated and the administra
tion of oxygen was begun. At 11:30
a. m. the eucbarlst was solmenly car
ried to him. ,
Meanwhile, prayers were being
said in all the churches and Catholic
Institutions of Rome, on behalf of
his holiness, and great crowds began
to assemble in St. Peter's.
Sudden Change for Worse
Today's sudden change for the
worse in the pontiff's condition seem
ed to have come as a great surprise,
even to those who had been observ
ing him most closely. Last evening
he received some strengthening in
jections, and the doctors then stated
they wera satisfied with his condi
tion, expressing hope that danger of
an extension of the Inflammation to
the lungs had passed and saying that,
the crisis seemed to be overcome.
One of the most disturbing condi
tions that developed early today
seemed to be passing away after 10
o'clock this morning as the pontlf:
was then able to expectorate slightly.
This aroused more hope among tho
watchers, but towards 11 o'clock he
became worse again and oxygen then
was administered.
Monslgnor Zamplnl, sacristan of
the apostolic palace; Monslgnor Car
lo Resplghl, the pontlficial prefect of
ceremonies, and Monsognor Mlgoue.
the private chamberlain, were at the
pope's bedside.
There was an air of anxiety and
apprehension about the Vatican,
where many of the cardinals were -waiting
in an antichamber, all the
cardinals In Italy having assembled
in Rome upon receiving word of the
pope's serious illness.
Later Cardinal Gasparri, the papal
secretaray of state telegraphed alt
the nunciatures, advising them of the
seriousness of the pope's condition.
LOS ANGELES, Jan. 20. With a
cold wave bearing minimum tem
peratures reported officially as vary

H. B. Hersey, director of the United

The Cold spell was generally re
