DAWN OF RESSURECTION' Pope Paul told the Roman Catholic faithful behind the Iron Curtain and wherever the church is suppressed to "feel themselves near to us" and to look with hope to "the radiant dawn of resurrection." Then, the 65-year-old new pontiff went into the grotto below St. Peter's Basilica and knelt in prayer beside the tomb of his predecessor and friend who died June t after a pontificate of four years and seven months.

Tanks Faced Soviet Tanks Last Time Creation Of Dead At Wall Timed For BONN, Germany UP) East Germany's Communist regime purposely picked the eve of President Kennedy's visit to Germany to challenge the rights of the West at the Berlin Wall, a Western official said Saturday. The last such challenge brought a confrontation of U. S. and Soviet tanks. With Kennedy due here Sunday for the start of his 10-day European tour, the East German Communists created a dead zone 110 yards wide on their side of the wall. They forbade anyone from entering the zone, including Western military men who are allowed to circulate freely in the divided city. The decree also means that few East Germans, except for border guards, will be able to see Kennedy when he visits Berlin on Wednesday. Pontifical Ceremonies. (AP Wire-i In his first message to the selected by the College of Cardinals Friday. His message was filled with remembrances and praise of Pope John. "We love to rlrnemlber,, he said, "with mindful and moving piety, the figure of the late John XXIH, who in the brief but very intense period of his ministry, was able to bring near to him the hearts of men, even those distant." In what appeared to be a reference to the United States and the Soviet Union, Pope Paul touched on the space race. NOT AS COMPETITORS "The new epoch which the conquests of space have opened to mankind," he said, "will be singularly blessed by the Lord if men know truly how to recognize each other as brothers rather than competitors, and build a world order in saintly fear of God, in respect of his laws, in the light of sweet charity and mutual collaboration." He followed in the spirit of Pope John in suggesting more help for poor peoples of the world. "The certain order of love for others, a test of love for God, demands of all men a more equal solution of social problems; demands aid and care for underdeveloped countries in which the level of life is not often worthy of human dignity; requires a voluntary study of a universal scale for the improvement of the conditions of life," he said. The military commanders of the United States, Britain and France said in Berlin they would not respect the dead lone. They called it the "most brutal action" by the Communists since they built the Red wall on Aug. 13, 1961. The West German government press office said the timing of the measure showed that it was one of the disturbances planned by the East German regime for Kennedy's visit. Allied officials in Berlin also viewed as a potentially dangerous challenge to Western air access rights an East German-Austrian agreement whereby Austria was given permission to fly to Berlin without using the three designated air corridors. The West is concerned because the Austrians want to land at Templehof Field in the Germany Will Be 1st Stop Kennedy To Urge Unity Of Atlantic Alliance WASHINGTON (AP) President Kennedy flew to Europe Saturday night on a 10-day mission to promote good will and unity in the Atlantic community. After a final few hours of rest at his Camp David, Md., moun- tain retreat, the President took off from Andrews Air Force Base Md., and headed for Wahn Airport in West Germany and a four-day round of receptions and speech-making from Bonn to Berlin. He starts off by motoring from the airport to Cologne Sunday morning, where he will attend Mass with Chancellor Konrad Adenauer at the famous Cologne Cathedral. On Wednesday he will go to West Berlin, the first American president to visit the Communist encircled city since Harry S. Tru man attended the Potsdam con ference at the end of World War II. ine President win carry a personal message of friendship from the United States. Much of West ern Europe will see a seven-hour step-by-step telecast of his motor tour through the city as it is beamed within range of more than 25 million television receivers in 12 countries. Wash ington diplomats heard that the Reds might try to stage a coun- terattraction the same day, perhaps an East Berlin visit by Rus sia s two newest astronauts, Val entina Tereshkova and Valery Bykovsky. From Berlin Kennedy will fly to Dublin for a 24-day sentimen tal visit to the land of his Irish ancestors. Then he goes on to England for a day at the country home of Prime Minister Harold Macmillan near London. Arrangements for the final por tion of Kennedy's trip, a three- day visit to Italy, are still being worked out. The President ex pects to see the new Pope, Paul VI, as well as various Italian po litical leaders. He is due back in Washington July 3. Aides said Kennedy does not intend to undertake any particular negotiations with the Western leaders he will meet during his four-country journey. Rather, they stressed what they termed the symbolic importance of the presence of the President of the United States in Europe. During his wide public exposure and frequent speechmaking, Ken nedy is expected to stress his be lief in the growing interdependence of the United States and its West European allies. In Kennedy's view; America and Europe each need the other militarily and economically, and growing unity of the Atlantic com munity is the wave of the future, Today's Chuckle Balancing the budget isn't so hard as budgeting the balance. American zone instead of the Communist-controlled Schone-field Airport outside Berlin. To the displeasure of the allies, Informants reported, West Berlin Mayor Willy Brandt supports the Austrian request. However, the Western allies, who have the final say on the use of West Berlin airports, fear that granting Austria and possibly other neutral nations such landing rights would give the East Germans a pretext for abolishing the four-power Berlin Air Safety Center and for demanding the West deal with East German authorities. Aside from challenging the West in Berlin, the East German dqad zone appears aimed at reducing the number of escape routes into the West Zone.

Space Woman Gefs Bear Hug, Kiss From Nik MOSCOW (AP) Valentina Tereshkova got a big bear hug and a kiss from Premier Khrushchev Saturday as thousands of Russians turned out to honor their first woman of space and her male partner, Lt. Col. Valery Bykovsky. Khrushchev also used the occa sion to challenge the United States to match Soviet feats in space and to point out to the world the military potential packed by such feats. Thousands of Russians packed into Red Square, eager to catch a first glimpse of the pair since their return to earth on Wednesday. The bear hug came M Valentina walked out of the plane at Vnukova Airport directly into Khrushchev's waiting arms. The kiss was bestowed atop the tomb of Lenin. The crowd applauded only brief ly the several speeches, even that of Valentina.

Zone JFK forbidden zone 545 yards wide along the 76 miles of border that makes West Berlin an island inside East Germany. The United States, Britain and France have 12,500 men in their Berlin garrisons. The three Western powers maintain that their soldiers have a right to circulate freely in the divided city. The Allies viewed the dead zones as a challenge to this right. - Last time the Red authorities made a big challenge to free movement through the wall, the result was a confrontation of Soviet and American tanks at Check-point Charlie. That was in October 1961. Since then, Western civilians have been allowed to go into East Berlin only if they show their passports to police of the East German regime. Men in uniform, however, have been able to move freely. i J vr,, L - Jubilation in space last Wednesday, making more than 48 orbits of the earth, a total Khrushchev pointed out as greater than the combined flying of all the United States astronauts. MADE SOVIET HEROES He announced that both she and Valery had been made heroes of the Soviet Union, the highest award in the land, which had been given also to the four earlier cosmonauts and a recent visitor from Cuba, Fidel Castro. She also was given, along with Bykovsky, the title of pilot cosmonaut. On earth, she has never piloted a plane. Saturday night the two new cosmonauts were guests at a big Kremlin reception where they received the Order of Lenin and other honors. In his speech Khrushchev ap pealed to the world to let the flight of the cosmonauts "bring friendship and peace and happi ness to all. "Outer space must be a zone of peace, a zone ot international cooperation. We welcomed the space flights of the American cosmo nauts. This is a noble and worthy partnership in the competition for a peaceful conquest of outer space." But he had this to say also about the Soviet Union's rocket might: CITES ROCKET POWER "All people, of course, realize full well that if the Soviet Union has rockets which make with amazing accuracy such flights around the earth, it also has rockets for other purposes. Even an air of romance was injected into the joyous proceedings when Andrian Nikolayev, the cosmonaut whose record last Au gust of 64 orbits was broken by Bykovsky's total of 81, made a point of standing close to Valentina. There are rumors that Nikolayev and Valentina plan to mar ry. .... iMcnvjikv. after reoortlng brief ly on his flight, condemned the American nuclear tests and the belt of copper needles sent aloft for experimental purposes. "Th nennles of the world con demn these acts," Bykovsky said, "And we Soviet cosmonauts join our voices to this." Valentina called for world peace, saying "my father perished defending our country and my mother brought up her three children." "We know the bitterness of that war," she said. "We don't need war."

Powell, speaking Friday night in Long Beach, Calif., at a banquet sponsored by the "Committee for Powell" and the Long Beach Community Baptist Church, said that Kennedy's message was "the greatest civil rights statement since the Emancipation Proclamation."
