Spain (AP)Spain today began 30 days of national mourning for Generalissimo Francisco Franco, Western Europe's last surviving dictator, who died early today after a month-long battle for life. Heads of other West European governments expressed the hope that the death of the man who had ruled Spain with an iron hand for :«! years would mean the rebirth of democracy in his country. But his reactionary supporters were already gearing up for a determined fight against the advocates of a new and liberal Spain The government announced that Franco would be given a state funeral on Sunday and that the successor he designated, Prince Juan Carlos de Borbon. would be installed on Saturday as Spain's first king in 44 years. The 37-year old prince, who has been acting chief of state since Oct 30. is <i grandson of King Alfonso XI11 and was educated und trained under Franco's supervision from the age of 11. The dictator cteignaled him his successor in t%», but many Spaniards expect him to try' to move the political system toward democracy Juan Carlos will take the name King Juan Carlos I since his father, Don Juan, the Count of Barcelona, has refused to renounce his own prior claim to the throoe. Franco's 2 6 • m a n medical team m a final bulletin said the generalissimo's condition deteriorated throughout the night until he suffered "irreversible heart arrest" at 5:23 am Informed sources said his only child, his daughter Carmen, was at his side with four of his grand children Franco's wife of 52 years had returned homo, exhausted by her long death watch. Although the doctors' bulletin gave the caus-e of death as heart failure, they listed nine ailments from which Franco was suffering in his final illness. They were Parkinson's disease, which he had for several years, coronary disease, acute digestive ulcers with massive repeated hemorrhaging. bacterial peritonitis, acute renal kidney failure, thrombophlebitis, bilateral bronchial pneumonia, endotoxic shock and heart arrest. The 5-foot-3-inch generalissimo died just two weeks before his 83rd birthday. He had been ill since Oct. 17 and had suffered repeated heart attacks, had undergone three major abdominal operations and for days had been kept alive by massive blood transfusions, a respirator, an artificial kidney machine and other mechanical devices as well as his own indomitable will to live. The government said Franco's body would be taken today from La Paz Hospital where he died to the chapel of the Pardo Palace, his residence north of Madrid. It will be Drought to the National Palace in downtown Madrid Friday morning to lie in state from 8 a.rn. Friday to 7 a.m. Sunday ' 'so all who want to can pay their final homage before the body," the government said. A requiem mass will be celebrated en Sunday in the Plaza de Oriente, in front of the National Palace, and then the body will be taken for burial in the Valley of the Fallen, the vast underground cathedral which Franco had built into a mountainside 35 miles north of Madrid as a monument to the dead of the Spanish Civil War. The funeral Is certain to bring out a massive demonstration by the political right, a show of strength to warn Juan Carlos against (lie liberal reforms which many expect him to initiate. The right's drive against political change has already begun Conservative lenders are making speeches demanding that the authoritarian system established by Franco remain unchanged The police are arresting scores of opponents of the regime, leftist leaders claim the civilians of the right have be«n armed Ultra-rightist Bias Pinar tells hi» audiences to Ix 1 ready to battle the Communists in the strwls.
