As ex peeled, members of the Electoral College overwhelmingly elected him the first president of the Fifth Republic. The wartime hero, 68, who stepped aside as premier in 1946 rather than play second fiddle to the National Assembly, now can assume the presidency for a seven-year term with greatly increased powers. He will take over the office from Rene Coty, 76, Jan. 8. New Constitution The "rule by Assembly" of the Fourth Republic collapsed just as de Gaulle had predicted. Under special powers granted him to re form the French state after the revolt last May, de Gaulle wrote • new constitution with a strong executive. His first victory came when the new constitution was approved by an 80 per cent vote in a Septem ber election. In November, a new Nationa Assembly was elected with a preponderance of de Gaulle followers In Sunday's presidential election de Gaulle got 78.5 per cent of the valid ballots of the grand elec tors, an Electoral College repre tenting the French mainland and overseas territories. De Gaulle did not vote or tafc part in the election. As premie he did not belong to any category of the grand electors, made up o mayors, municipal and count councillors, Parliament member and a few plain citizens. Of 79,468 valid ballots, complete returns gave de Gaulle 62,392. Foes Far Behind The two token opposition cand dates ran far behind. Communis Georges Marrange, 70, mayor the Paris suburb of Ivry, receive 10,854 votes. Albert Chatelet, 75 a University of Paris dean an candidate of the non-Communis opposition to de Gaulle, got 6,722 Until he takes over the pres dency, de Gaulle remains premie with bis broad special powers rule by decree. These special pow ers automatically expire when h becomes president. Many reorganization measure almost all affecting internal a fairs, still are in the Cabinet mil and must be approved in the next two weeks. One of these is the 1959 budget, which almost certainly will call for new taxes. ' When de Gaulle moves into the Elysee Palace as president, he will have power to: Appoint a premier without the necessity of his choice being approved by Parliament—ministers will be named by the president according to the proposals of the premier: Submit Bills Submit some bills passed by Parliament to a referendum: Demand reconsideration of bills he does not like; Dissolve the National Assembly after consultations with the pre-i* can scientists have conducted a;typewriter signals on the satel- mier and the president of the two lumDer of communications tests j lite.

Both indirectly involve civil rights and could effectively shatter for a long time tHe coalition of Republicans and Southern Democrats which for years has wielded the balance of power in the House. Change In Rules Unless a compromise is worked out, one battle will be over a proposed change in the House rules to offset the coalition's current control of the House Rules Committee. The other involves election ol Dr. Dale Alford to succeed Brooks Hays, Democrat, as representative of Arkansas' Little Rock district. Alford, a Democrat who ran as an-independent, won in a write-in campaign reportedly backed by Gov. Orval Faubus. Through Probe A special House Elections Com mittee recommended that Alford not be seated until a standing House committee has made more thorough probe of his elec tion. The special committee spli 3-2 in urging that Alford, a lead ing segregationist, be denied seat pending the probe. Two Re publicans and a Democrat, al Northerners, comprised the ma jority. Two Southern Democrat; were the minority. Hays, a moderate on the sub ject of integration, has not con tested the election. Want GOP Vote Southerners who share Alford' feelings about integration hope Republicans win vote .with them to seat him. They contend that i is not a civil rights issue but rlaying — in coded form — that message and another by radio teletypewriter, and (3) leaving the messages in the satellite's tape recorded for a while before trig- gring their transmission to ground stations. 7 Sent Returned Sunday afternoon, a station at Ft.

Miss Mildred Paperman his secretary for many years, was given 10 days in jail. Sentences will start Jan. 7. Both were released in personal recognizance of $1,000. Their convictions were handed down Friday by Judge Wyzanski. Judge Wyzanski told Goldfine: 'I have no wish that you spend this season in jail and I wish to jive you adequate opportunity to jresent this case to the court of appeals." % A look of dismay crossed the 67- year-old Goldfine's face. Miss Pa- perman sagged a bit as the judge gassed sentence. Judge Wyzanski said he based lis decision on the fact that Gold["me and Miss Paperman we^e "intimate with tribunal proceedings and were well aware of the penalties for flouting the authority *ol his court."

Strikes kept the giant fleets of American Airlines and Eastern Air Lines on the ground during the peak season of air travel. Tens of thousands of passengers continued to scramble for alternate accommodations mas approached. as Christ- Railroads and buses, already loaded with holiday travelers, reported a land office business. Long waiting lists formed at other airlines. Piles of Christmas mail were diverted to other carriers. A pilots' walkout at midnight Friday grounded American. Eastern had been idled since Nov. 24 mechanics and The pilots' strike at American drew criticism from two California officials. Rep. H.

He also announced an alloca- ion of 30,300,000,000 rubles — .7,575,000,000 — for the expansion of agriculture. Zverev said 27,300,000 rubles —' $6,825,000,000. — would be ap- ffopriated for scientific research, le compared this to 'a previous appropriation of 23,900,000,000. He said 232 billion rubles, or 58 billion dollars, would be spent in 1959 on education, health, social insurance and maternity benefits for prolific mothers, fin increase of nearly 20 billion rubles over 1958. This will include more than 94 billion rubles for education, 44 billion for the health program, over 88 billion for social insurance and 5',2 billion for mothers. 8 Per Cent Boost "As compared with 1958, the national income will increase by 8 per cejat^qnd will be 140 per>cent_ jreatet than in 1950," Zverev said. The finance minister called for increased labor productivity and lower production costs in industry, transport services and agriculture. The labor force is to increase by 1,300,000. workers, but the workers obviously are expected to produce still more than in past years in the campaign to overtake the American economy. Zverev said the Soviet government expects its budget revenues to rise to 722,900,000,000 rubles, an increase of 9.3*per cent over 1958,, and expenditures to go up 10.8 per cent to 707,200,000,000 rubles. Decrease in Defense By contrast with the big rise in expenditures for education and social benefits, a slight decrease was promised in the defense appropriation. This was put at 96,100,000,000 J $24,025,000,000 — as compared with a 1958 defense appropriation of 96,300,000,000 rubles. The finance minister said the defense budget "reflects the peace policy of the Soviet Union, a policy of preserving peac« in ^he whole world." (The actual figure for Soviet defense spending is far greater than that given for the defense appropriation but cannot be estimated. This is because much of the Kremlin's military expenditure is. concealed under other budget headings. Couple Killed in 2-Car Race on Highway MITCHELL, S.D.
