U.S. Press Corps Thank Pope for Improved Information

Representative members of the United States press corps covering the Vatican council have sent a letter to Pope Paul VI expressing appreciation of improved information services on council proceedings.

The letter was transmitted through Archbishop Martin J. O’Connor, president of the council press committee. The prelate, who is rector of the North American College in Rome, sent it on to the Pope.

“It was a beautifully composed letter,” Archbishop O’Connor said, “and it was signed by some of the best known names in the U.S. journals and wire services. We are all most gratified by it.”

Archbishop O’Connor said that he had noticed a marked increase in interest by his seminarians in the questions studied by the council. He said that increased news information corning out of the council bas stimulated the interest. At his college copies of the council press bulletins and N.C.W.C. News Service releases about the council are posted daily for the seminarians to read.
