De Gaulle's reaction to these tidings Is not known. But the silence emanating from the Elysee could indicate a cations that he has had misgivings right along about the extremes to which De Gaulle has pushed his Quebec policy. Up to the time of Johnson's death nothing suggested Couv-e's views in this realm carried much weight. During his decade as one of De Gaulle's senior ministers, Couve has sometimes influenced his master's course of conduct. But this has generally happened only when their views were in close accord anyway. There have been indi Couve is believed to have reported back to De Gaulle both his favorable impression of Trudeau personally (they had met only once previously when the latter was Lester Pearson's parliamentary secretary and then only for a cou even greater gap In what might be described as their life styles, the two prime ministers were made for each other intellectually. Both have brisk, crystalline minds; they are incisive thinkers in a way that is not typically Latin.

Quebec Premier Johnson's death, the decision of President de Gaulle not to attend his funeral and the consequent Quebec meeting between Prime Ministers Trudeau and Couve de Murville have been followed in rapid succession by the sale of Canadian Plutonium to France, an agreement to cooperate in atomic research, external affairs minister Mitchell Sharp's submission to the French government of a proposition for joint undertakings in space, and the dispatch here of a team of federal scientists to seek French technical aid in constructing Canada's domestic telecommunications satellite. In addition, a representative of the Canadian Civil Service has set up shop here, recruiting French experts in a variety of fields to help instill a "French flavor" inside federal departments in Ottawa. The timing of some of this has been merely coincidental. The plutonium deal was a year in the making and the satellite scientists visit was planned months ago. Nonetheless, for the first time in several years, it is Franco-Canadian, rather than Franco-Quebecois, collaboration that is making the news. The conjunction of events has contributed to a feeling, that, if not detente, at any rate some sort of change has occurred in relations which seem bound on a collision course only a month ago. At the same time, the Ely-see Palace has suddenly turned mute. The previously steady drumbeat of anti-Canadian innuendo and comment has trailed away in the weeks following Johnson's death, although it had attained a new crescendo Just before that. In another development, almost certainly not unconnected, Canada's long-suffering ambassador, Jules Leger, who through no fault of his own had become a symbol of these last, sad years in Ottawa-Paris relations, is shortly to be replaced. Those hunting clues to explain the new situation tend going no farther than the Tru-deau-Couve talks. Knowledgeable informants here believe that Couve came away from the encounter not only strongly impressed by the Canadian prime minister's intellect and resolve but with an altogether new insight into Trudeau's plan to equalize the cultural and economic status of French Canadians with the confederation. Although the precise nature of their conversation has never been disclosed, it is reliably understood that most of it was devoted to Trudeau's exposition of the federal government's proposals to give French equality with English throughout Canada, protecting the cultural rights of French Canadians everywhere. Trudeau did most of the talking. Couve listened and, if this reporter's information is to be credited, emerged in--trigued byhjs jdeas. Odd as it "may seem, this was the first time that a top-flight figure in the De Gaulle government had had Trudeau's bicultural program explained straight from the horse's mouth a fact partially traced to Ambassador Leger's systematic exclusion from the uppermost rungs of thcGaullist regime. Like De Gaulle, Couve has been skeptical, If not downright contemptuous, of the old notion of bilingualism as unobtainable and a principle to which only lip service was paid. Talking to Trudeau, he appears to have realized for the first time that the present government's objective isn't bilingualism of this kind, but something very ditferent. Something, also, that could be of potentially much greater interest to the IV Gaulle regime in its self-proclaimed role as guardian of French culture abroad. Personal rapport entered the picture, as well. Couve reportedly found Trudeau "sympathetic."

Xlake worth NEW YORK (UPI) - The acting head of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) says America Isn't really racing Russia in space. It just happens that Americans are ahead, and they mean to stay that way. "We are not really engaged in a race with the Russians, (but) we have no intention of abdicating our position in space . . . "Thomas 0. Paine said at a Navy League dinner in the Waldorf Astoria. Former NASA head James E. Webb also was present. Paine said once a landing has been made on the moon and exploration is under way, the United States probably will turn its attention to space stations, earth resource satellites and other projects. Webb speculated that Soyuz 3, Russia's first manned spacecraft in months, demonstrated a growing ability by the Russians to achieve a choice to methods of reaching the moon. 955 PARK AVE.
