    PRESIDENT DE GAULLE RETURNED TO PARIS LAST NIGHT AFTER HIS TEN-NATION SOUTH AMERICAN TOUR. HE FLEW IN FROM RIO DE JANEIRO AND WAS MET AT ORLY AIRPORT BY THE PRIME MINSTER M. GEORGES POMPIDOU, AND OTHER MEMBERS OF THE CABINET, EACH OF WHOM HE GREETED WITH A FRIENDLY SMILE.

    THE PRESIDENT LOOKED WELL AND SEEMED UNDER NO STRAIN AFTER HIS LONG TOUR. HE MADE NO COMMENT ON HIS VISITS.

    AN OFFICIAL COMMUNIQUE AT THE END OF HIS STAY IN BRAZIL SAID HE AND PRESIDENT HUMBERTO CASTELLO BRANCO CONSIDERED THEIR TALKS HAD BEEN "FRIENDLY AND POSITIVE." PRESIDENT CASTELLO STRESSED BRAZIL'S GREAT INTEREST IN DEVELOPING LONG-TERM CREDIT FOR FINANCING ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT.

    REPORTS SAY PRESIDENT CASTELLO-BRANCO MADE IT CLEAR THROUGHOUT THE TALKS THAT BRAZIL WAS COMMITTED TO THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE UNDER AMERICAN LEADERSHIP.

    PRESIDENT DE GAULLE ALSO VISITED VENEZUELA, COLOMBIA, ECUADOR, PERU, BOLIVIA, CHILE, ARGENTINA, PARAGUAY AND URUGUAY.

    THE ONLY MAJOR INCIDENT WHICH MARRED HIS VISIT WAS IN CORDOBA, ARGENTINA, WHEN POLICE USED TEAR GAS AND CLUBS AGAINST SUPPORTERS OF FORMER DICTATOR JUAN PERON AS THEY ENTHUSIASTICALLY MOBBED PRESIDENT DE GAULLE'S CAR.
