Pope John XXIII •y WILLIAM F. SUNDER LAND United Press International VATICAN CITY (UP!) - Pope John XXFIt, one of the greatest popes in the history of the Roman Catholic Church, died today in the fifth year of his reign. Te 81-year-old pope went to his death slowly, in prayer and suffering, his stout peasant's hcnrt carrying him through more than three days of final agony that w*»s relieved only by lapses into comas. Vatican Radio said the Pontiff died at 7:49 p. m. (2:49 p. m. EOT). The spiritual leader of the ' World's half billion Roman Catholics died without seeing the end of his great project, the Ecumenical Council, which was suspended with his death. For nearly four days the heart of the Pontiff continued beating after doctors had given up hope of saving him from the stomach tumor that was believed to be cancerous. As his condition worsened, peritonitis an inflammation of the abdominal cavity, set in and his temperature rose dangerously while his blood pressure fell. Last Friday he sank so close to death that he asked for and received Extreme Unction, the last rites of the church. As he lingered in the v-allcy of the shadow of death in the days that followed, the Pope slipped in and out of a coma, rallying at. times to bless those at his bedside with a weak wave of the h-and, then drifting again into deep unconsciousness. Before the end came he was too weak to move. Pope John's illness first became evident last November, but he rallied and returned to his work in the Vatican offices until M-ay 21 when the tumor's lethal effects began forcing him into the final surrender. The public saw him for the last lime on May 23 when he blessed a checding crowd of 15,000 from the window over St. Peter's Square. The death of the Pope was announced by Giorgio Luigi Dernuc- ci, an editor of the Vatican City newspaper Osservatore Romano. Vatican Radio reported at 3:45 p.m. (10:45 a.m. EOT) that doctors could do nothing more for the 81-year-old pontiff than to help his labored breathing with oxygen. It said the Pope had been "unconscious for several hours." "Only his heart is still heating," the broadcast said. "No feature of his face is moving. He has gone into deep unconsciousness. Administration of oxygen is all that can be done." At 4:15 p.m. (11:15 a.m. EOT), Msgr. Andrea Cesarano. archbis- op of Manfredonia, Italy, left the papal apartment in tears. Vatican sources said the Pope repeatedly had mentioned his name while half conscious in recent days and that he had been hurriedly summoned to the Vatican from his archdiocese. The radio had said earlier that the pontiff, although conscious July 4 Rally Planned lo Promote Goldwater Dead enough to hear Mass this morning, was so weak he no longer needed sedatives or drugs to kill his pain. Tim afternoon's bulletin snid the internal hemorrhaging lhat had complicated his condition earlier hnd resumed Sunday night. Tod'.ny his blood pressure dropped from 115 to 95, and medical sources said this indicated his slant heart was failing. There was no "human" solution to the illness, the Vatican R-adio said earlier in the morning. As the Pope lay dying on his bed in the Vatican Palace, surrounded by his three peasant brothers and sister and his confessor, a group of high church officials charged with the task of (See POPE, Page 3) POPE JOHN XXIII Red Prince Offers To Meet Neutrals On Plain of Jars -WASHINGTON (UPO-The „.. !
