    THE PRESS AND RADIO OF THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA HAVE SO FAR IGNORED POPE PAUL'S STATEMENT THAT HE'S WILLING TO VISIT CHINA IN THE CAUSE OF PEACE.

    NO OFFICIAL COMMENT WAS IMMEDIATELY AVAILABLE TODAY FROM PEKING.

    POPE PAUL'S HISTORIC "PEACE PILGRIMAGE" TO NEW YORK ENDED YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) AND LATER, IN THE VATICAN, HE ADDRESSED THE WORLD'S 2,200 CATHOLIC BISHOPS, GATHERED FOR THE ECUMENICAL COUNCIL.

    AS CHEERING CROWDS GREETED POP E PAUL AT ROME AIRPORT COMMENTATORS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD CONSIDERED HIS "NO MORE WAR" CALL TO THE UNITED NATIONS - MOST APPLAUDING IT AS A VALUABLE AND URGENT INTERVENTION AND URGENT INTERVENTION IN WORLD AFFAIRS BY THE HEAD OF A GREAT CHURCH.

    IN CONTRAST TO THE TUMULTUOUS MASSES WHO WELCOMED THE POPE IN NEW YORK, ONLY A SMALL CROWD CAME TO ST, PETER'S SQUARE IN ROME TO SEE HIM RETURN.

    INSIDE ST. PETER'S HOWEVER, THE BISHOPS GAVE HIM A STANDING OVATION.

    POPE PAUL SPOKE IN LATIN OF, WHAT HE CALLED "STRIDENT INEQUALITIES STILL AFFLICTING MANKIND", AND ASKED: "IS THIS AWARENESS OF INEQUALITIES BETWEEN CLASSES, BETWEEN NATIONS, NOT THE GRAVEST THREAT FOR A RUPTURE OF PEACE?"
    HE SAID THAT CURRENT STUDIES BY THE BISHOP'S ON THE CHURCH'S RELATIONS WITH THE MODERN WORLD WERE ALREADY AN ACTIVE CONTRIBUTION TO PEACE.
