    Background: THICK BLACK SMOKE POURED FROM A CHIMNEY IN THE SISTINE CHAPEL TODAY (THURSDAY) TO TELL THE CROWD GATHERED IN ST.PETER'S SQUARE, ROME, THAT CARDINALS MEETING IN SECRET CONCLAVE HAD FAILED IN FOUR BALLOTS TO ELECT A SUCCESSOR TO POPE JOHN.

    THIS WAS THE FIRST DAY OF THE CONCLAVE OF EIGHTY CARDINALS.TWO INCONCLUSIVE BALLOTS WERE TAKEN IN THE MORNING AND TWO IN THE AFTERNOON.TWO SMOKE SIGNALS WERE MADE DURING THE DAY TO INDICATE THE BALLOTS.

    BLACK SMOKE, MADE BY MIXING DAMP STRAW WITH THE BURNING BALLOT PAPERS IS THE TRADITIONAL SIGN FOR INDICATING THAT THE BALLOTS HAVE BEEN INCONCLUSIVE.WHEN THE NEW POPE IS ELECTED ONLY THE BALLOT PAPERS ARE BURNED AND THE SMOKE IS WHITE.

    AFTER THE SECOND SMOKE SIGNAL TODAY, HUNDREDS OF PRESS PHOTOGRAPHERS WHO HAD WAITED ALL DAY IN ST.PETER'S SQUARE, PACKED UP THEIR EQUIPMENT UNTIL TOMORROW - THE SECOND DAY OF THE VOTING.

    THE CARDINALS WILL HOLD TWO BALLOTS EACH MORNING AND TWO EACH AFTERNOON UNTIL THEY ELECT A POPE BY A MAJORITY OF TWO-THIRDS PLUS ONE - IN THIS CASE, 54 VOTES.UNTIL THE ELECTION IS OVER, THE CARDINALS WILL REMAIN SEALED OFF FROM THE OUTSIDE WORLD.
