The world's Roman Catholics welcome a new pope, Pius XII, the first time a  papal coronation was broadcast on radio.  The guests included Joseph P. Kennedy, U.S. ambassador to London, his wife and eight children, The Times says. Kennedy family correspondence on the coronation may be found at the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum.

A wedding in St. Louis is picketed because the canopy installed to protect guests from the rain was put in by non-union workers. And The Times begins a series by Winston Churchill, whom The Times identifies in the byline as "Noted British Statesman."
