    THE OLD QUARTER IS THE RUE MOUFFETARD, NOTED FOR ITS SLUMS, STREET MARKET AND ANTIQUE AND BRIC-A-BRAC SHOPS. OFFICIAL CAMPAIGNING FOR NEXT MONTH'S ELECTION BEGAN LAST FRIDAY, BUT M. TIXIER-VIGNANCOUR, A PROMINENT LAWYER, HAS ALREADY SPENT EIGHTEEN MONTHS SEEKING VOTES.

    VOTING TAKES PLACE ON DECEMBER 5, AND THERE ARE SIX CANDIDATES. OPINION POLLS MAKE PRESIDENT DE GAULLE A FIRM FAVOURITE TO WIN A SECOND SEVEN-YEAR TERM.
