HERTER SWORN IN AS SECRETARY OF STATE AT WHITE HOUSE CEREMONY witnessed by practically every Cabinet member, leaders of both Parties, and members of Mr. Herter's family.

The man who led the revolt against the Batista regime arrives in New York's Penn Station and is greeted by some 20,000 cheering Spanish-speaking worshippers. He is very touched by the demonstration. Fidel gives New York's 'finest" a real work out. Real tough assignment for the New York policemen - guarding the controversial Castro - whose secret formula for charm seems to be maximum courtesy - minimum information. But everything's on the plus side so far.... QUEEN MOTHER OF ENGLAND AND PRINCESS MARGARET RECEIVED BY POPE JOHN IN PRIVATE AUDIENCE. It was a very affable visit. The conversation was spoken in French. This was Margaret's second audience with a Pope. She was received in private audience in 1949 by Pope Pius XII. Following the audience with Pope John XXIII, the Queen Mother dedicated a statue to the nineteenth-century English poet, Lord Byron, who spent much time in Italy. The statue, a joint gift by British and American nationals in Rome, was unveiled in the Villa Borghese, magnificent public park in the center of the city. The Princess visited five churches in two days in addition to visiting the Catacombs. In the evening she attended a party in Club Caballa atop an ancient three-story Inn over-looking the Tiber - where Dante, medieval Italian poet, once frequented.
