  • Description

    SECURITY MEASURES WERE INTENSIFIED THROUGHOUT PARIS MARCH 10. POLICE GUARDS WERE POSTED ROUND THE ARC D'TRIOMPHE AND OTHER STRATEGIC POINTS; TANKS AND ARMOURED CARS REINFORCED THE GUARDS AROUND PRESIDENT DE GAULLE'S RESIDENCE, THE ELYSEE PALACE; THE MINISTRY OF THE INTERIOR, RAILWAY STATIONS, POST OFFICES, THE FRENCH RADIO AND TELEVISION STATION, AND OUTSIDE THE HOUSED OF MANY PROMINENT OFFICIALS.

    THE REASON FOR THESE ADDED PRECAUTIONS, WHICH CAME ON THE DAY OF AN O.A.S. BOMB OUTRAGE THAT KILLED THREE PEOPLE AND INJURED 50, WAS SAID TO BE THE STATE NOT SO MUCH OF RISING TENSION AS OF RISING EXCITEMENT.

    THIS WAS BECAUSE IT WAS REALIZED THAT THE FRENCH-ALGERIAN PEACE TALKS AT EVIAN WERE PROGRESSING "SWIFTLY AND DECISIVELY" AND THAT A CEASEFIRE COULD BE EXPECTED BY MARCH 13 OR 14.
