POPE: PEACE FOR CASTELGANDOLFO, ITALY (REUTERS) - Pope Paul VI said here Sunday he would be seeking peace in Africa when he flies to I Uganda Thursday for a three I day visit. In a clear [ reference to the Nigerian civil war, he said "our jour- ne y has an aim W hich we must tf POPS PAUL describe as ardent and grievous - that of peace. "And peace is also suffering in Af rica because of the very painful conflicts which reap innocent victims — you know where and without number — and which still nobody has managed to settle," he said. The pope's remarks, made during a Sunday blessing to pilgrims at his summer residence here, fueled speculation that he would attempt some initiative to end the three year old Nigerian civil war during his stay in Africa. The pope's words were general enough to encompass wars In Portugal's African territories and In Sudan, as well as Nigeria, but they were taken as bearing primarily on the latter. Civilian suffering in the Nigerian war has been widely publicized , and Catholic agencies have been deeply involved in shipping food to the hungry onj — the Biafran side. Authoritative Vatican sources said Saturday the pontiff would take any opportunity offered there to mediate for peace between. Nigeria and Biafra. The Nigerian government announced Saturday night it was sending a delegation headed by two federal commissioners to Kampala during the pope's visit but it was no t immediately known whether any Biafran representatives would also be there. The pope is scheduled to meet seven African heads of state at a meeting in Kampala Friday. These include the presidents of Tanzania and Zambia, both of which have recognized Biafra.

(AP) The head of the National Association of Government Emptoy- es (N.A.G.E.) said Sunday that a threat of massive resigna- tionsof. air traffic controllers is a bluff and there will be no walkout. Kenneth T. Lyons, president ol N.A.G.E. which claims 8,5« members among air control personnel and is an organizing rival of the Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization, said in a statement: "It's time the public and the Congress were made aware that F. Lee Bailey and the Professional Air Traffic Controllers organization (P.A.T.C.O.) do no speak for a majority of the controllers, and that the controllers do not support his irresponsible threats of a mass walkout We're calling Mr. Bailey's bluff, and flatly predicting thai no walkout will occur."

An estimated 3,000 troops were killed before the O.A.S. imposed a ceasefire July 18 but El Salvador said it will hold on o a strip of Honduran territory until the safety of about 300,000 Salva'dorians in Honduras is guaranteed. The O.A.S. ministers are reluctant to apply diplomatic or economic unctions against El Salvador because they fear the permanent disruption of the Central American common market and the possibility of El Salvador's withdrawal from the 22-member O.A.S. One hopeful sign of an agree ment was the lack of oratory by the tvo disputants at the opening session of the meeting Saturday.

Thirteen states - 10 of them under Republican governors— were represented at the annual meeting of the Western Governors Conference. Vice-President Spiro T. Agnew, Robert H. Finch, secretary of health, education and welfare, and George Romney, secretary of housing and urban development, will offer administration views on domestic issues at the opening session today. Main Concerns Beforehand, the governors made it clear at a press confer- ience that the war and inflation [were among their main con- I cerns. Nine of the governors willing to comment on the war said they backed the' President's efforts to pull out American troops gradually and turn the fighting over to South Vietnam. "I support all feasible methods of honorable withdrawal of United States troops from Vietnam as quickly as possible," said Gov. Paul Laxalt of Nevada, a Republican. "I feel President Nixon is working diligently toward this end." "I certainly favor a policy of withdrawal from Vietnam as rapidly as it can be done without jeopardizing our forces there and without abandoning the effort we've made," said Democratic Gov. Calvin Rampton of Utah. Washington always refuged. URGES 111 MINISTRIES UNITED NATIONS. N.Y.

Others applauded while many pressed in toward the senator and reached out trying to touch him. Kennedy nodded only slightly n acknowledgement and appeared somber after a troubled week in which he pleaded guil- y to leaving the scene of a fatal automobile accident and then went on television to ask the voters of Massachusetts to tell ilm if they wanted him to remain in office. Thousands of Telegrams Following that appeal Friday night, thousands of telegrams lave poured into Western Union offices in Boston, Hyannis and Washington. A Kennedy spokesman said a pre liminary check "indicates they're running overwhelmingly in favor of his continuing in office." The aide described Kennedy as "gratified" by the response. Kennedy's appearance at church Sunday was one of the few times he has been seen in public since the death July 18 of Mary Jo Kopechne, 28, campaign worker for the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy.

Several hundred people were waiting outside to get a glimpse of the young senator. His car was directed into the church parking lot close to a rear entrance. The Kennedys, their two children, and Claude Hooten, of Houston, Tex., a friend and former Harvard classmate, walked swiftly into the church through a rear door.

Continued Inflation Some governors — both Republicans and Democrats — thought continued inflation could hurt incumbents in the 1970 congressional election. Gov. John Love of Colorado, a Republican, said G.O.P. congressmen could be victims. But he said they would be hurt even worse by "steep deflation that could cause large numbers of unemployed." Gov.
