    COPIED FROM NEW YORK TIMES: "CUSHING'S REACTION TO ELEVATION" BOSTON, NOV. 17 -- ARCHBISHOP RICHARD JAMES CUSHING'S FIRST REACTION TO HIS ELEVATION TO THE COLLEGE OF CARDINALS TODAY WAS THAT THE PEOPLE AROUND HERE PRAYED ME INTO IT."
    TRIBUTES FROM PERSONS OF ALL RELIGIOUS FAITHS INDICATED THAT HIS SELECTION WAS A POPULAR ONE.

    ARCHBISHOP CUSHING, 63 YEARS OLD, FIRST LEARNED OF HIS NOMINATION AT 11 P.M. YESTERDAY (11/16/58), HE TOLD NEWSMEN. ANOTHER NEW CARDINAL-DESIGNATE, AMLETO CICOGNANI (CQ), APOSTOLIC DELEGATE TO THE U.S., TELEPHONED THE NEWS FROM CHICAGO. "I DIDN'T CALL A BLESSED SOUL," THE ARCHBISHOP CONFIDED, "I JUST COMPLETED MY WORK AND WENT TO BED." HE PUT IN ONE OF HIS PHYSICALLY BUSY SUNDAYS YESTERDAY. AT COMMUNION BREAKFAST OF STATE EMPLOYEES HE DELIVERED AN ATTACK ON DETRACTORS OF J. EDGAR HOOVER, DIRECTOR OF F.B.I.. HE SAID THE F.B.I. WAS THE MAIN DEFENDER OF THE NATION AGAINST COMMUNISM.

    THE BOSTON PRELATE'S OFFICIAL RESPONSE TO HIS NEW HONOR WAS AS HUMBLE AS THAT TO HIS ELEVATION AS ARCHBISHOP OF BOSTON 14 YEARS AGO. HE CALLED ON 1,500,000 CATHOLICS IN GREATER BOSTON TO "PRAY FOR ME." CONGRATULATORY MESSAGES POURED IN FROM THROUGHOUT THE NEW ENGLAND AREA. IN SPRINGFIELD, THE MASSACHUSETTS COUNCIL OF CHURCHES UNANIMOUSLY ADOPTED A RESOLUTION AT ITS MEETING OFFERING "HEARTY FELICITATIONS" AND WISHING HIM "EVERY JOY AND HAPPINESS" IN HIS POST. THE COUNCIL REPRESENTS 1,800 PROTESTANT CHURCHES.

    THE RIGHT REV. ANSON PHELPS STOKES, JR. (CQ), BISHOP OF THE PROTESTANT EPISCOPAL DIOCESE OF MASSACHUSETTS, ISSUED A STATEMENT SAYING HE JOINED IN THE "GENERAL REJOICING" AT THE NEW HONOR THAT HAD COME TO THE CATHOLIC PRELATE. BISHOP STOKES ALSO SENT A PERSONAL TELEGRAM.
