Reflected Across Fronce De Gaulle Sees Change Of Mood In Hometown COLOMBEY -*LES - DEUX- EGLISES (AP) -- There was a little cheer, a weak "Vive De Gaulle." and the old man headed up the flight of stairs to the ballot box. lurching forward because he is 78 years old, blinking because his eyes are weak. He waved at the top of the stairs for a second. There was no color in his face, only deep brown circles under his eyes. Charles de Gaulle voted quickly Sunday, left the room and went home just before noon. Within a little more than six hours he knew things were going wrong. Cnlombey-les- Deux-Eglises was the first place :o tell him so. CHANGE OF MOOD It was not a betrayal in the village, where people remember when the general drove an old car and played in the garden with his children. It was * change of mood that reflected the change occurring all over the country. Paul Fontanil, De Gaulle's chauffeur, wrote down on a pad at 6:15 p.m. that the general's Defends Colleges Dr. S. I.

Those 21 nos startled some of the old people in the village hall, with its portraits of De Gaulle behind and in front of the ballot box. There had been only nine nos at the last referendum, and only two and one the times before that. The word went out quickly-something was wrong. Who was responsible? An old woman who wore her slippers to the vote counting said it was the people at the cheese factory on the far side of the village. "They're young and you can't tell about them," she said. TIDE AGAINST HIM Across the country the tide flowed stronger against De Gaulle. A direct line from the Elysee Palace in Paris brought the bad news to the president. In Janine's Cafe, the only one in town, there was quiet but nol stupefaction. Andre Bidault, farm laborer In rubber boot* and coveralls, said: "The damned French, they don't know how to vole. They've pinned him out the door because he was old. I know him. you know, I can tell you all about him." By 11 p.m., the lightt were out In the village of 350 persons. In their house just off the church square, De Gaulle's bodyguards stopped eating and watchec television. They waited for spe cial instructions that did not come. All was quiet at La Boisseric, the house behind the trees at the end of De Gaulle Street, where the old general lives. Sreel Worktr Dies PINE BLUFF, Ark. (AP) Roy S.
