  • Short Summary

    74 year old Paul Doumer is made President of France.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Paris. France's New President. Monsieur Paul Doumer - takes over official duties of the Republic."

    Paris, France.

    Paul Doumer reads (mute) from statement.

    Ext - President Doumer emerges from building. He climbs into a car with Pierre Laval.

    French soldiers on horse back ride in parade. The President's car is in their midst.

    Doumer, Laval and other politicians stand at memorial.

    Paperwork informs us that Doumer was "Speaker of the Senate, and a Navvy's son, elected head of state at 74 years of age." This item may actually be the story that went out in 31/49 and 31/40 may be missing.
