  • Description

    THE YOUNG GAULLISTS, UNION DES JEUNES POUR LE PROGRES, GAVE FORMER FRENCH PRIME MINISTER AND POSSIBLE SUCCESSOR TO GENERAL DE GAULLE, MR. GEORGES POMPIDOU, A TUMULTUOUS RECEPTION WHEN HE SPOKE ON THE FIRST DAY OF THEIR CONGRESS IN STRASBOURG ON SATURDAY.

    THE YOUNG GAULLISTS ARE HOLDING THEIR CONGRESS ON THE TWO DAYS IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE OFFICIAL OPENING OF THE REFERENDUM CAMPAIGN, BUT THE GAULLIST PARTY IS USING IT TO GATHER SUPPORT IN THE EAST OF FRANCE, WHICH THOUGH TRADITIONALLY STRONGLY GAULLIST HAS NOT SHOWN GREAT ENTHUSIASM FOR REGIONALISATION AND THE REFORM OF THE ALTHOUGH FOURTEEN MINISTERS WILL BE ADDRESSING THE CONGRESS, BUT ON THE FIRST EVENING MR. POMPIDOU WAS THE ONLY LEADING POLITICIAN.

    HIS SPEECH WAS EXPECTED TO BE IMPORTANT, BUT THE RECEPTION FOR HIM DROWNED ALMOST ALL OF IT. THE AUDIENCE BROKE INTO FREQUENT BOUTS OF CHEERING, INTERRUPTING MR. POMPIDOU WHO WAS OFTEN UNABLE TO FINISH HIS SENTENCES. THE ENTHUSIASM WITH WHICH HE WAS GREETED IS THOUGHT TO BE PARTIALLY SIGNIFICANT IN THE LIGHT OF GENERAL DE GAULLE'S THREAT LAST WEEK TO RESIGN IF HE DID NOT GET A MAJORITY AT THE REFERENDUM.

    THERE IS NATSOF THROUGHOUT WITH TWO PASSAGES OF FRENCH SOF.

    THIS IS A TRANSLATION OF WHAT MR. POMPIDOU SAYS ON THE FILM:
