    POPE PAUL TODAY (MONDAY) RECEIVED THE SOVIET PRESIDENT, NIKOLAI PODGORNY, IN AN HISTORIC AUDIENCE LASTING AN HOUR.

    DURING THEIR MEETING THE POPE AND PRESIDENT PODGORNY ARE REPORTED TO HAVE DISCUSSED WORLD PEACE AND THE PROBLEMS OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH IN THE SOVIET UNION.

    THE SOVIET LEADER'S AUDIENCE WITH POPE PAUL WAS THE CLIMAX OF A WEEK LONG VISIT TO ITALY, THE FIRST EVER MADE BY A SOVIET PRESIDENT.

    IT WAS THE FIRST MEETING BETWEEN A POPE AND A COMMUNIST HEAD OF STATE. THE TWO LEADERS MET IN THE POPE'S LIBRARY AT THE VATICAN PALACE. AS WELL AS DISCUSSIONS ON THE POSITION OF ROMAN CATHOLICS IN THE SOVIET UNION, POPE PAUL AND PRESIDENT PODGORNY ALSO TALKED ABOUT THE CONFLICT IN VIETNAM.

    THE POPE GAVE PRESIDENT PODGORNY A LARGE VOLUME OF PAINTINGS AND DRAWINGS OF LEONARDO DA VINCI.
