PARIS (AP)-President de Gaulle apparently has been diverting some of his time from the cares of Berlin and Algeria to musings about re tirement The hint slipped out after the austere general talked privately Friday in Marseille to senators and deputies from the region of that Mediterranean port. What he said, and how he said it, was far from clear Several members of the small audience had different versions. The first startling account of what was said in the closed meeting was-distribut-ed by the semi-official French news agency. Finished Soon. Quoting one of the listen ers, the agency said that De Gaulle considered his task will be finished, once the Al gerian situation is settled According to this version, he was supposed to have said, "I am at the end of my road After (an Algerian settle ment) I will retire." BenedictioiTi Wnen tms nevvs ricocheted back to the presidential par ty, reporters started scurrying around to parliamentar ians who had been present. Conflicting versions fell as fast as autumn leaves. Most, however, seemed to agree that the president had expressed the hope that the Algerian war, now in its eighth year, could be stopped within 6 months. He also made vague references to the fact that he must die some day and that the time may come when he might no longer be able, or wish, to continue as chief of state 71 Nov. 22. De Gaulle will be 71 on Nov. 22 his 7yea"r term as president expires in 1966. , But hardly any of the sen ators or deputies could recall that the Algerian settlement and the ruminations about stepping aside had been linked. The ambiguity was not clarified by a statement from the president's office after he returned to Paris Friday night The communi que said: "The remarks attributed Saturday to Geri, de Gaulle by a press agency and re peated by certain news papers concerning his future intentions are contrary to the truth." Out of the welter of state ments, the president's determination to finish as quickly as possible with Al geria was almost lost He once hoped to end the fighting with the nationalist rebels by the end of this year. Now the timetable has been stretched a bit Expects Vote. After a self-determination vote in Algeria which De Gaulle firmly expects to re cord a wish for independence the details of the settlement would be submitted to the French people for ratifi cation. When those important con sultations are concluded, De Gaulle apparently is thinking about calling a new parlia mentary election, such an election might give some clue as to who could step in to the presidential palace De Gaulle has made no move to groom a successor. former Premier Pierre Mende-France professes to see the menace of civil war if De Gaulle should suddenly disappear. Many leftists claim that army officers sympathetic to the right-wing Algerian settlers might try a military putsch. Fraternity To .

"Everyone should carry a fair share of the tax load," Prentis said. "When we don't collect the sales' or income taxes due Iowa, someone usually the people that have been paying has to." Prentis credited the governor for giving the commission authority to proceed with revaluating property in 47 counties in Iowa "to see that everyone eventually will, pay a fair share of the tax burden." Prentis said his" "heart is still in the legislature, and these problems will be confronting it later. "If we don't justly collect the taxes due Iowa," Jie. added,, "the legislature will have to levy tax increaseson the people already -paying their fair Share."

"They've almost lost a loved one . . . this is their loss, not ours. We want them to properly evaluate it. Even to ask a person if he will rebuild is not a fair question right away Simkins estimates the amounts claimed will be for homes, nearly 70 for personal belongings. "You must remember that fine arts can build some of these personal claims up pretty fast, says Simkins. Much Art. Some homes in the area, he says, contained collections of original paintings and statuary.

Goldwater, who ended a leisurely vacation in Europe this week, told a news con ference Friday: "It's no advantage to the country to be employing Adlal Stevenson, Dean Acheson and Owen Lat- timore.
