  • Description

    DR KONRAD ADENAUER HAD TALKS WITH PRESIDENT DE GAULLE AT THE ELYSEE PALACE IN PARIS TODAY (MONDAY). THEY DISCUSSED FRANCO-GERMAN DISAGREEMENTS ON COMMON MARKET GRAIN PRICES AND THE NATO MULTI-LATERAL NUCLEAR FORCE.

    THE TALKS WERE ENTIRELY UNOFFICIAL. DR ADENAUER WENT TO PARIS TO ACCEPT HONORARY MEMBERSHIP OF THE FRENCH ACADEMY OF MORAL AND POLITICAL SCIENCES, AN AWARD CURRENTLY HELD BY SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL AND EX-PRESIDENT DWIGHT EISENHOWER.

    BEFORE MEETING THE FRENCH LEADER, HE SAID: "I HAVE TAKEN IT UPON MYSELF TO TRY TO CLARIFY THE EXISTING DIFFICULTIES BETWEEN FRANCE AND GERMANY." HE ADDED THAT HE WAS GOING THIS AFTER CONSULTING DR ERHARD, HIS SUCCESSOR AS CHANCELLOR, AND OTHER CABINET MINISTERS.

    TODAY'S TALK LASTED AN HOUR. DR ADENAUER DESCRIBED IT AS "GOOD." TONIGHT, AT A DINNER, HE SAID OF PRESIDENT DE GAULLE: "THIS GREAT STATESMAN, THIS OUTSIZE MAN -- WE CAN ALL THANK GOD THAT HE WAS GIVEN TO US." HE COULD NOT IMAGINE WHAT WOULD HAVE BECOME OF THE WORLD TODAY WITHOUT PRESIDENT DE GAULLE.
