    FRENCH CARDINALS AS WELL AS THOSE FROM SPAIN, ITALY, AND GERMANY WILL BE ATTENDING AND PRESIDENT DE GAULLE IS EXPECTED TO BE AT TOMORROW'S PONTIFICAL MASS. REPRESENTING POPE PAUL IS CARDINAL MARELLA.

    THE CEREMONIES WERE TO HAVE BEEN HELD LAST YEAR BUT THEY WERE DELAYED AS A SIGN OF MOURNING FOR POPE JOHN.
