Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - February 5, 1965, Mason City, Iowa 1 1 De Gaulle gets the treatment Retaliation for JFK trick By JAMES MAR LOW AP News Analyst WASHINGTON AP Presi dent Johnson has done to French President Charles de Gaulle almost exactly what De Gaulle did to President Kenne dy And now Johnson and De Gaullelook as far apart as Ken nedy and the Frenchman did Johnson suddenly called a news conference within a few minutes after De Gaulle had finished a news conference If it hadnt been for this the French man would have had world headlines to himself But De Gaulle had to share them because Johnson and his administration repudiated what the French president said a few minutes before Until this happened Johnson for months had said nothing to irritate the Frenchman In turn DC Gaulle had been quiet But as Thursday showed this didnt mean Johnson had hypnotized DC Gaulle into being agreeable This is what De Gaulle did to Kennedy In early 1963 it was known for some time Kennedy would de liver his State of the Union mes sage to Congress on Jan 14 Under ordinary circumstances this would have given him the world stage for one day The world was waiting De Gaulle jumped into the act He suddenly decided to meet the press not only on Jan 14 but a few hours before Ken nedy could begin to talk DC Gaulle undercut what Ken nedy was to say later There wasnt much Kennedy could do about it His message had al ready been prepared mimeo graphed and distributed Kennedys message spoke glowingly of a Europe moving toward unity The Frenchman contradicted this idea before Kennedy could mention it He made a mess of Kennedy for eign policy This is what Johnson did to DC Gaulle Forweeks it was known De Gaulle would meet the press Feb 4 Johnson hadnt held a preannounced news conference since last July 24 Reporters protested newspapers criticized him As late as Wednesday John sons press secretary George Rccdy told impatient reporters that for the time being John son
