McGMNCY (Unilcil Press Staff Correspondent) PARIS, Oct. 24. (UP; — Supporters of Gen. Charles De Oaulle stepped up their campaign today to recruit an inter-parly organ!- I ziition of Deputies who would dissolve the National Assembly nnd open the wny for new elections that! might sweep De Gaulle Into the ''• Premiership. . • . Inasmuch as Do Gaulle's six- month-old rally of the French pco- ,ple rose to power In Sunday's municipal flections, it has no representation In the Assembly nnd under the constitution as ''it now stands no chnncc of getting any before next May's elections. . nut DC Gaulle has friends In other parties in the assembly. Their idea was to form an "Intergroup for,: defense, of Mrue Democracy" that would by twb : thlrds majority aintrirt the constitution to provide for immediate elections and dissolve the present session. Then, under their plan DC Gaulle's rally could run candidates and If enough were elected to the Assembly, Do Gaulle, the C o m in 11 n 1 s t s' bitterest foe In Prance, could get himself installed as Premier. Their accelerated recruiting campaign was particularly concentrated on Deputies of the Popular Republican movement, at whose expense largely De Onullc ran up his victory of about 40 per, cent of the popular vote Sunday.
