AM FA LA, Uganda (AP) Pope Paul has apparently failed so far to arrange peace talks between the two sides in the Nigerian civil war, but the head of the Biafran delegation said he hoped .to meet with the pontiff again today. Pope's aides did not immediately confirm plans for a meeting. The latest report was that he planned to devote the last day of his three-day visit here to Roman Catholic ceremonies. Augustine Okwu, Biafra's diplomatic representative in East Africa and one of three Biafran representatives who are here to help Pope Paul get peace talks going, said he had a "friendly, fruitful and understanding" meeting with the pontiff Friday. Okwu said he .thought the Pope's efforts had .been helpful, but added that "nothing has been excluded and nothing has been, decided yet" on the possibility of peace talks. j i.-, rPope'- Paul r'also met with a Nigerian delegation and with an Ugandan team led by President Hilton'.

Later he was lo leave for Rome. Oa the way to the martyrs' shrine, the Pope stopped and prayed in a small Protestant church erected to honor 18 Ugandans who died in .the same circumstances as the Roman Catholics. Official Purpose The dedication of the shrine was the official purpose of the, first trip by a pontiff to the Afri-' can continent, and the eighth trip abroad in. Pope Paul's six- year reign. But'in addition to church du- ties, the Pope devoted much of his (line in trying (o achieve peace in the bloody two-year-old civil war between Nigeria and the breakaway state of Biafra. At'the dedication, at which he also .baptized 22 Ugandans and celebrated-Mass, the Pope ap- pealed .for Christian unity. "In the martyrs' spirit of ecu- he said, "we cannot resolve our differences by mere reconsideration of the past or judgment upon it. Instead we must press on in confidence that new light will be given'us to lead us to our goal; we must trusl that new'strength will be granted us so that, in obedience lo our common Lord we may all be able lo receive the grace of unity." After meeting separately with the Nigerian and Biafran dele- gations Friday, the pontiff met again at night with the Nigerian delegation for 90 minutes. There were reports the Pope was trying to get the Biafrans to join them, but they did not ap- pear. The Biafrans, who have been fighting to win national inde- pendence from the rest of Nige- ria, might have been displeasec by .the Pope's frequent refer- ences to national "unity" in his speeches here. There also were indications Pope Paul tried to find a way to solve the .deadlock over the shipment of. relief supplies to Biafra.

Among those changes will be an alternative program for tax- ation of mining operations, spe- cifically Including the op indus- try. Undersecretary Charles E. Walker said. Walker expressed his opposi- tion (o one of the decisions made by' the committee .which would permit some oil Industry opera- tors to continue to escape all Federal income lax. The change was the one.that exempts cer- tain lax .preferences accorded the pQ industry from .the opera- tions of the "minimum which was specifically designed to make sure that no" person of wealth could escape all federal income tax. On this point. Walker indi- cated, the Treasury would like to see stricter treatment than the committee approved. Walker would not quite say, however, .whether the adminis- tration's whole new approach to taxation of the mining indus- tries might also involve heavier taxation than the committee ap- proved. He said that the administra- tion's approach would'me an either taxes for these industries than are paid now, but would make no comparisons with the committee's bill The changes for mining Industries "will cer- tainly'not decrease the national he said. A hint that some lighter tax treatment might be in the ad- ministration'] mind was voiced by Assistant Secretary Edwin S. Cohen, who said the aim was "lo make sure the na- tion gets its money's worth" from the incentives, In the form of preferred tax treatment, that are given the mining industries. Overall, however, Cohen de- scribed the bill as one that "goes a long way toward closing most of the glaring loopholes in the law or else minimizing their effects." Walker echoed this theme by calling the bill "a major pieca of highly constructive tax legis- lation" and emphasizing what he described as the nonparlisas manner in which the commutes worked it out. The present plan U to bring the bill (o the House floor for debate on Wednesday and a vota on Thursday. The bill extending the 10 per cent tax surcharge through end of the year will come up in the House on Monday, having passed the Senate Thursday.
