Expect even closer church-state cooperation in Poland over the next months. Archbishop Jozef Glemp met briefly with Communist Party chief Stanislaw Kania shortly after his recent appointment and agreed to continue the cooperation offered by the late Roman Catholic primate Stefan Cardinal Wyszynski. A more substantive meeting is likely once Glemp has consulted with Pope John Paul II. The bargain: greater latitude for the Roman Catholic press in exchange for full support for the party's "renewal" program.

The regime is likely to make concessions: recent protest make church cooperation more vital than ever.m
