Giscard d'Estaing was reportedly upset by a French poll that indicated barely one-third of the American people regard France as a good ally. And he appeared to be making a pe r . sonal effort to overcome that impression during his Bicentennial visit, saying the two countries "should know each other better in order to understand each other better " It was the fifth time in 18 months that Ford and the French president met and their •uvjiv vumuiueu 10 lanseni mat despite the best diplomatic re* Schools Continued from page 1 cast.

Ford, who picked up 98 delegates Tuesday to 29 for Reagan, stdl trails in the delegate count, but he narrowed the gap significantly. Reagan now has 514 and Ford 432, with another M3 uncommitted, many thought to be Ford backers who would be encouraged by the President's showing on Tuesday. A total of 1,130 is needed for nomination. Carter built on his lead in Democratic delegates. He now has 712 of the 1,505 needed for nomination to 274.5 for Udall, who moved into second place. Jaclcson, who has stopped active campaigning, is third with 222 and Wallace is fourth with 145. Ford, returning from a dinner for French President Valery Giscard d'Estaing, said of his showing: "This is really going to put us on the road to that victorj- in Kansas City," He added: "And boy, that nice victor}'. But Reagan, his voice hoarse after sbt months of campaigning, pointed to the fact that Michigan is the President's home state, said a first ballot victory was possible at the convention and added: "['m not going to lose any sleep over this." Brown, who says he expects the backing cf : uncommitted slates in New Jersey and Rhode Island and hopes to do well in the western primaries, said his Maryland win'was the beginning of a drive to the nomination. "Maryland is a microcosm of the country," he said. "It's a real representative sample of what this country is all about. If in three weeks" I can get my message across here, I can get my message across in the rest of the country." Carter claimed success because of his gains in the delegate race. He says his own count now snows him with more than 900 and he predicted he will win another 100 in the six primaries that take place nent week. WEDNESDAY SPECIAL Going on ow!

A Paris decorator had constructed a huge pink and burgundy tent over the garden, recreating an 18th century room complete with tapestries from Versailles and paintings from the Ixrnvre Museum in Paris as the setting for the 200 dinner guests. French chefs from Giscard d'Estaing's Elysee Palace came to Washington to help cook the elaborate menu that included pate de fois gras per- ieord with truffles, lobster with spring vegetables, and quail with grapes - all served with four of the best French wines. A special Limoges china service with a red, white and blue Bicentennial motif created by Christian Dior had been produced for the occasion. Among the guests were Mrs. Joseph P.
