PAPAL AUTHORITY Ending Fend With Italy I UnAfE .Tnmiarv S. In spite oi a succession of rumonrs and denials, some people interpret the Papal officials' tributes to the late Marquis Domenico Barone as an indication that the age-long quarrel between the Vatican end the Italian Government is either ending or has. been ended. ?
