Phone 242-0508 French officialdom are reporting privately that Presid e n t Charles de gaulle seems ever more removed from political reality as his dreams of a strong France fed by outdated nationalism crumble steadily. For a President Nixon patently eager to generate better re- i lations with Western Europe, this may be good, long- run news, though it has its grim aspect in the immediate future. Plainly, the French want to get back to the main course of European political and econo- ; mie life. Indeed, the first fruit: of such a return could be the I • long delayed admission of Great Britian to the European I Common Market — an entry! blocked, of course, by De 1 Gaulle.

SALE PRICES 3 DAYS ONLY French people, even Gaullists, as his recent embargo on arms and parts shipments to Israel, a move he made without even consulting either his prime minister or his foreign minister. The urge to let Britain into the Common Market stems not from a sudden flush of economic altruism in France, but from a growing fear — fueled by the crisis of the franc in late 196S — that West Germany surely will dominate the economic ecbmmunity unless offset by British presence. Whatever the spur, a dropping of the barriers to Britian would restore France to good estate with those leaders here and in Europe who see long- range promise for the Europeans only in steady moves toward unity. Ironically, France was the great instigator of that movement in the early postwar years. Nearly 11 years ago, De | Gaulle interrupted that trend ! Taking power in a country rip| ped by turmoil, he was widely 1 welcomed for the i - ocklike stability he brought. But the price to France's "friends" was incredibly high. ' , The developing economic amalgam of Europe was slowed. French participation in the once great nato alliance thinned to a shadow. De Gaulle sought his own diplomatic course as a kind I of lonely Third Force, meddling | i half blindly in the efforts to . end the struggles between East and West. His "allies" suffered and endured, because he held France together as no one else could. That, tolerance, sheer good luck and economic prosperity sustained De Gaulle in his fantasy that his country, hardly bigger than Texas, could be the key force in a world of giants. But 1968, the incredible year for many, sent his dreams crashing. Student revolts culminating in general strike exposed the nation's real fragility. Somehow he pulled domestic political victory from the jaws of defeat. Yet France was left quaking. Russia's August invasion of Czechslovakia doomed his fic- | tion that he was serving mirac- I ulously as a solitary Third I Force, taming Soviet intransi- i gence. De Gaulle as the East- j West bridge simply collapsed. ! Reeling from the blow he was j struck next with the monetary | crisis which put the franc in j jeopardy and forced him to seek rescue from, of all peoples, his • ancient German enemies and j his domineering "friends" in! , tiie United States. j Crippling cutbacks in' t h e i 'French nuclear and military| programs followed, and t he ] harsh awakening took hold, j , French military leaders pros-! j sed to get France fully back I ! into the NATO network. . The grim news, of course, is : that the French, their trust in De Gaulle largely gone, see no real substitue on the horizon. Before the good things can happen, they have to find one. i Meantime, their' strange master goes on, perversely breaking the eggs his countrymen walk upon in a precariously balanced Europe.
