HKRBKliT O. KING United I>rcss Staff Correspondent PARIS, June 3. (UP>—The moderate Popular Itobubllcnn party smashed the Communist bid for power in France today, replacing the Communists as the nation's strongest political party with substantial gains in Sunday's election. Foreign Minister Georges Bldiuilt, leader o f the victorious Popular Republicans, may become next president ot France at the head of a coalition government Including Communist and Socialist members.

The surprising Popular Republican victory strengthened tlw conservative tid e in French politics. Tli e swing toward the right began in the recent national referendum when the proposed constitution formulated by the Communist-Socialist bloc was rejected by more than 1,000,000 votes. Nevertheless, the combined strength of the Communists and Socialists was so great that both pnrtler'und6ubtcdly' : wlll-participate In the next government.

(U.P.)—Thc Arkansas Supreme Court today upheld action of the Chickasawba District, Mississippi Chancery court, in decreeing that Ancil Harris was entitled to only one -fourth or his rallier's estate instead or to one-half. Harris filed two suits against Frank Whilworth, administrator of the estate; and against his brother, Gordon Harris nnd two sisters,, sue Burks and Mattlc Bell Nation. He alleged that he and his father entered into a verbal agreement In 1921. Under the agreement, Haris said he was to receive half of all property plus a 120-acrc farm south or Blytheville on which he and Ills father had lived since 1934. The Court ruled that thc property should be divided ' equally among tli c four children. Listed in addition to thc 120-acrc farm were one 202-acre farm, renta: properties in Blytheville, 532,000 in cash, $5,000 i n bonds and livestock and farming equipment.

Any De- Gaull e comeback attempt at this time would encounter bitter Communist opposition. There was n possibility tVat the Communists, realizing the difficulty of their position in a new coalition. might refuse to join it and become an opposition party. The Socialists suffered the heaviest losses In returns for metropolitan France. In the weeks between Ihc constitutional referendum and yesterday's voting, they made a decided change in policy, sharply attacking the Communists with whom they teamed In drafting the rejected constitution. This election also saw thc consolidation or several minor parlies into two groupings, thc IjCft Republican union and the Republican Party of Liberty .a strongly right wing organization. The Left Republican union won 38 seats In Metropolitan France, the same total Its member par- tics held in thc last assembly. It comprises radical Socialists, the Democratic Socialist Union.
