    THE STRENGTH OF PEASANT FEELING IN FRANCE ON THE PROBLEM OF ABSENTEE LANDLORDISM WAS VOICED TODAY (MONDAY), IN AN EFFECTIVE BUT ENTIRELY ORDERLY FASHION AT ALENCON, NORMANDY, WHEN OVER 1,700 FARMERS TURNED UP AT A PROTEST MEETING. IT WAS HELD NOT FAR FROM THE COURTHOUSE WHERE 12 NORMANDY FARMERS WERE ON TRIAL FOR TRESPASSING ON LAND OWNED BY FAMOUS FRENCH FILM STAR JEAN GABIN. ALTHOUGH JEAN GABIN - THE TOUGH MAN OF THE FRENCH SCREEN - WITHDREW HIS SUIT TODAY, THE TRIAL CONTINUED AT THE DIRECTION OF THE PUBLIC PROSECUTOR.
