Background: Mr. John Diefenbaker, the Canadian Premier, was received November 12th at the gates of the Vatican by Monsignor Tardini, who then conducted his guest around the treasures adorning the walls before introducing him to the Pope's private apartments.
Mr. Diefenbaker, accompanied by his wife, had an audience of fifteen minutes, after which he toured St. Peter's.
After a visit of several European countries including Britain and Western Germany, the Canadian Premier is on his way to the Far Eastern Commonwealth countries for political and trade discussions.
