De Gaulle Seeks Power As Pinay Attempts Cabinet Leader of Powerful Par^y Would Meet President of France PARIS (AP>—The kinky figure of Gen. Charles etc Gaulle cast a lengthening shadow over French politics today as Independent Antoino Pinay tried to patch a new cabinet of experts from tho Ill-fitting Jig-saw pieces of France's non- Communljt parties. P«w observers gave Tinny—transport minister In the. lame duck government of Bclgnr l-'aure—any better chance of success than his predecessors. Wartime premier. Paul Reynuud already had failed to sllti:h together what pinay is seeking—a national union Eovcrnmcnt of technicians drawn from all parties except the Communists. Rene pjcvln, still snmrtlnf! from the defeat which threw him out of office In January, refused even lo make the try. The crisis was In Its fifth day. It ebgan because the Assembly voted 1,400 billion Irancs about four billion dollars tor arms—Including expanded defense of Western Europe —then refused « IS per cent tax boost to help pay the bill. Some French deputies already were talking about asking the United States for still more uirt to pay Franco's defense bill. But In Washington, chairman Tom Conally (D- Tex) of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, nngrity thundered that unless France docs "her utmost in her own, she cannot justify large iijmropriatlons from the.United States for both economic and military aid." Such plain talk with the Senate's most potent voice on foreign affairs indicated that the French failure to find the funds for her part of North Atlantic defense was building up fresh trouble for President Truman's request for $1,000,000,000 for foreign aid. Tho longer the crisis dragged on —with the bleeding of the nearly empty treasury unslouped by new taxes — the better DC Gaulle's chances seemed of getting into power. His party, the Rally of the Fro;;ch People, which Iras the largest membership In Parliament, has deckled It Is ready to Join in talks for a national union to meet the growing crisis. Should it gain a dominant voice in a new cabinet, it undoubtedly would cause a major upheaval In present, French foreign policy. De Gaulle already has called for sweeping changes In the major Western defense programs to which France has recently committed herself. The RPF vigorously opposed the Schuman Plan for pciollng Western Europe's coal and sleel industries. It also opposes the one-uniform European army, proposed by France as a method of bringing Germany TUESDAY, MARCH 4, BIG MOUTHFUL—A H-19 helicopter makes !ust a nice bile for Ihe huge C-124 Globe Master at Westover Air Force Base, Mass.
