    Background: POPE PAUL SAID IN THE VATICAN TODAY (SUNDAY) THAT HE COULD NOT APPROVE OF THE WAVE OF PROTEST SUICIDE ATTEMPTS IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA. HE TOLD PILGRIMS IN SAINT PETER'S SQUARE, HOWEVER, THAT HE COULD ADMIRE THEIR VALUE, IN GIVING THE HIGHEST PRIORITY TO SELF-SACRIFICE AND LOVE FOR OTHERS. THE POPE WAS SPEAKING FROM A WINDOW IN THE VATICAN.

    THE POPE SAID HE WAS ALSO CONSOLED BY THE EFFECT OF THE SUICIDES ON THE CZECHOSLOVAK PEOPLE, "RENDERED SILENT, UNANIMOUS, COMPOSED, ALMOST READY TO EXPRESS A NEW FORM OF PEACEFUL AND BROTHERLY CO-EXISTENCE."
    "THIS TOO WE CAN CONTEMPLATE WITH ADMIRATION AND HOPE," HE SAID.

    LATER, THE POPE PRAYED FOR THE CZECHOSLOVAK PEOPLE AND GAVE HIS BLESSING TO THE PEOPLE GATHERED IN THE SQUARE BELOW.
