Pope Receives Visitors, Discusses Church Work VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Paul VI discussed church business today ior the first time since his operation Saturday and was visited by his two brothers. The Pope conferred for 45 minutes with Amleto Cardinal Cicognani, the Vatican secretary of state. He also was visited by his brothers. Sen. Ludovico Monlini and Dr. Francesco Moniini. a heart specialist. The Pope's progress since his operation aroused belief that he may be able to re. sume some of his usual acti- .vities sooner than expected. There is talk in Vatican circles that the 70-year-old pontiff, whose prostate gland was removed Saturday, might be allowed to appear at his window briefly next Sunday or the one after to bless the noonday crowd in St. Peter's Square. Immediately after the operation, Vatican sources said they did not expect the pontiff to give a Sunday blessing until Dec. 3, the first Sunday of Advent. The new prediction was an indication of the optimism and re- i lief over the outcome of the' Pope's operation. i "Thank God," the Christian Democratic party newspaper El ! Popolo wrote after a medical bulletin Sunday said the Pope's i condition was "truly satisfactory." ! The general tone of the com- munique as well as a television ; interview Saturday night by Dr i Pietro Valdoni, who headed the , surgical team, was considered an indication that laboratory analysis had shown the condition of the Pope's prostate gland i was not cancerous. ! However, it was felt that the j results of the laboratory tests may never be announced in line with Vatican custom since the death of Pope Pius XII. The pontiff resumed taking food by mouth Sunday morning I and was expected to be able to 1 leave his bed for a few steps soon. His temperature went down j two-tenths of a point to normal, and the area operated on was said to be healing according to "the best expectations." It was reported that his doctors may soon stop issuing daily communiques as a sign that everything was going well. The Pope wants to avoid excessive publicity of what he feels is a private matter. j The Red Cross said at least 26,000 families or close to 140,000 persons were left homeless by the typhoon in 21 central and northern provinces. Damage estimates ran upwards of $5 million. In southeast London this morning firemen cut through a tangle of wrecked passenger cars with acetylene torches, freeing trapped passengers and recovering bodies from the derailment Sunday night of the crack express train from Hastings, on the south coast. Many of the dead were believed to be children returning with their parents from the weekend in the country. Cars began jumping the track as the 10 Times Herald, Carroll, la.

Four cars careened along on their sides and jacknifed into a giant letter "W" while another turned upside down and skidded along on its roof.
