a candidate for reelection Dec 5 The announcement by De Gaulle in a radiotelevision ad dress to the nation set at rest months of speculation on wheth er he would seek another year term De Gaulle is considered cer tain to be reelected although he will be opposed In his brief address De Gaulle said I believe I must hold my self ready to carry on my task He clearly indicated he ex pects to be approved fay the electors saying What a new impetus will be given our republic when the one who heads it will have been ap proved by you for his national mandate De Gaulle took less than eight minutes to end the suspense A special crew of television cam eramen and technicians went to Elysee Palace this afternoon to put the message on film and tape After he made the recording De Gaulle asked for a rerun so that he could approve his per formance The television crew then was kept inside the palace to make sure that no advance word of his decision leaked out Apparently no one with the possible exception of Premier Georges Pompidou had been let in on the secret Pompidou was received by De Gaulle for a lengthy conversation this aft ernoon The suspense element has been so carefully built up that De Gaulle was certain to have an almost saturation audience One of the reasons for the un certainty was a complete ab sence of recent information on the state of his health a key factor in his decision De Gaulles last serious ill ness was nearly 19 months ago when a prostate tumor was re moved Six months later he made a strenuous threeweek tour of Latin America and showed no outward ill effects Since then he has carried on as usual NORWEGIAN FATALITIES OSLO Norway AP A to tal of 347 Norwegians have been killed in road accidents this year the National Council for Safe Traffic says
