  • Description

    CARDINAL FRANZ KOENIG, ARCHBISHOP OF VIENNA, WHO, ACCORDING TO AUTHORITIVE CATHOLIC SOURCES, WILL VISIT HUNGARY SOON, ARRIVED IN VIENNA YESTERDAY (SATURDAY).

    THE CARDINAL, WHO CAME FROM ROME VIA ZURICH, AVOIDED JOURNALISTS WAITING FOR HIM AT THE AIRPORT AND HURRIED AWAY IN A CAR. DR KOENIG IS EXPECTED TO SEE CARDINAL JOSEF MINDSZENTY, THE PRIMATE OF HUNGARY, WHO HAS BEEN LIVING IN REFUGE IN THE UNITED STATES LEGATION IN BUDAPEST SINCE NOVEMBER, 1956, WHEN RUSSIAN TROOPS CRUSHED THE UPRISING.

    CATHOLIC SOURCES SAY HE WILL GO AT THE INVITATION OF BISHOP ENDRE HAMVAS, AS CSANAD. HE WILL TRY AND PERSUADE CARDINAL MINDSZENTY TO LEAVE BUDAPEST FOR ROME.

    IT IS BELIEVED THAT HUNGARIAN AUTHORITIES HAVE SEVERAL TIMES GRANTED THE CARDINAL A SAFE CONDUCT IN PAST YEARS, BUT HE HAS SO FAR REFUSED TO LEAVE THE COUNTRY UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.
