    Background: THE BRITISH COMMUNIST PARTY BEGAN ITS 28TH NATIONAL CONGRESS TODAY (FRIDAY), AT ST. PANCRAS TOWN HALL, LONDON. MR. WILLIAM GALLACHER, A FORMER MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT AND PRESIDENT OF THE PARTY'S EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE ADDRESSED THE MEETING. DURING HIS SPEECH, HE PRAISED THE POPE AND SHARPLY CRITICISED MR. MACMILLAN, THE BRITISH PRIME MINISTER, PRESIDENT KENNEDY OF AMERICA, AND OTHER WESTERN LEADERS.

    THEY HAD, HE SAID, FORMED AN UNHOLY ALLIANCE TO EXPLOIT THAT PART OF THE WORLD STILL LEFT TO THEM. "UNHOLY", HE WENT ON "IS CORRECT, FOR TO HIS CREDIT POPE JOHN HAS REFUSED TO JOIN THIS UNPRINCIPLED BAND OF ROBBERS."
    MR. JOHN GOLLAN, THE PARTY'S GENERAL-SECRETARY, SAID IN HIS POLITICAL REPORT TO THE CONGRESS, THAT THE BRITISH COMMUNIST PARTY PLANS TO PUT UP ABOUT 40 CANDIDATES AT THE NEXT GENERAL ELECTION.

    SINCE 1961 PARTY MEMBERSHIP HAD INCREASED BY 5,467 TO 34,362, BUT THE CIRCULATION OF ITS NEWSPAPER, THE DAILY WORKER, HAD ONLY RISEN 100 IN THE SAME TIME, MR. GOLLAN SAID.

    THE CONGRESS IS SCHEDULED TO FINISH ON MONDAY (APRIL 15) AFTERNOON.
