The Pope expressed pleasure at the prospect of returning to his homeland. In Valencia, Spain, a young Polish woman pushed through the crowd to tell him she was delighted at the news. "I too am glad, my daughter, I am glad," he said. In the Polish capital of Warsaw, PAP also reported the scheduled visit and said the June 18 date was fixed at a meeting Nov. 8 between Gen. Wojciech Jaruzelski, Poland's martial law leader, and Ar- chbishop Jozef Glemp of Warsaw and Gniezno, primate of Poland. Neither PAP nor Father Panciroli said how long the papal visit would be. The visit would be the second one to Poland by the Pope since he assumed the papacy in October, 1978. Pope John Paul originally planned to visit Poland for the second time last August for celebrations commemorating the 600th anniversary of the arrival in Poland of the icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa, the Polish patroness. But the Polish government asked that the visit be postponed because it feared the Pope's presence could become the focal point of demonstrations protesting martial law. The first papal trip to Poland took place June 2 to 10, 1979. In Warsaw, the an- nouncement of the new date was greeted with hope and skepticism. "It's wonderful.

Celebi, 30, denied com- plicity when he was in- terrogated for 10 hours by four Italian Justice Ministry officials, said a spokesman for the prosecutor's office. Italian authorities allege that he obtained money and arms for the May 31, 1981, assassination attempt on the Pope. Pope John Paul was seriously wounded by gun- shots in the attempt. West German police arrested Celebi at the request of Italian authorities. Italy has asked Celebi, a Turk, be extradited, but no date has been set for a hearing. order and also conscientious work." The Jaruzelski-Archbishop Glemp meeting took place two days before underground Solidarity leaders planned demonstrations in support of the union. Archbishop Glemp had publicly opposed such demonstrations, saying they could lead to more repressive measures. Archbishop Glemp urged Poles to be calm, saying that more can be obtained through Greater Little Rock obtain more on this road than through desperate acts.
