M t................ to humor a drunk, repeat his name several times for an un- impressed secretary and watch out for other "mashed potato" dancers on (he floor of a disco- theque. It won't happen this time. Nor will Nixon, as he did when he was here June 19, 1967, hold up a piece of lobster for a photographer at a restaurant on the Left Bank, pass unnoticed at an "in" night club or grab a quick cocktail at the Rifz Bar. It's all changed now, but Mi- chael Pochna, the American wh o helped serve as Nixon's guide the last time he came lo Paris, recalls how quiet things were then. The commercial director of Raymond Lowey's industrial de- sign firm here, Pochna is tha son of John Pochna, an interna- tional lawyer, oil man and Wend of Nixon. Pochna senior had the President as a guest once in St. Tropez and Paris during Nixon's years out of public office. Pochna said, "The last time he came secretary in my office couldn't get (he name right. She had to ask for it a couple of or Nix- on? Anyway, she was terribly embarrassed when she found out." The Pochnas and Nixon, after drinks at the Rilz Bar, went to La Mediterranee, a well-known fish restaurant. Pochna recalls: "An American guy, a sort of friendly-type drunk, came to- ward the (able and kept saying lo Mr. Nixon, 'I know you from somewhere. We were in college together, weren't we? No, it was the Navy, wasn't "Then it apparently dawned on the man and he became ter- ribly apologetic. Mr, Nixon took It as a joke and we even asked the fellow if he'd sit with us for a drink. He didn't." After dinner the group went on to New Jimmy's, a club in Monlparnasse run by a woman called Regine. If you mean any. thing to anyone in France, He- gine comes in and says hello. She said nothing to Nixon. Dancing at New Jimmy's is Nixon Appeals For Just Peace strictly "jerk" and "mashed po- tatoes." Nixon took a turn on the floor wilh Pochna's wife, Marie-France. During another trip Nixon went to a party where he was grilled about his own politics and American policy by a group of "sharp, French young peo- ple." Pochna said Nixon "seemed to love it." Pochna believes that from his trips here Nixon goi the impres- tion that France was somewhat misunderstood by public opinion overseas and that "France is realiy a country of considerable industrial power with Iho ooli- te-la aspect only about one per cent." He said Nixon spoke of Presi- dent Charles de Gaulle with great respect and recognized France's strong ties in the Mid. die East and in some areas ol Asia. WELCOME Presidents Richard Nixon and Charles De Gaulle exchanged greetings at the Paris airport after Nixon arrived in the city from Rome.

FOR ITALY'S ANGRY YOUNG MEN PARIS (AP) _ President Nix- on came to Paris today to a cor- dial French welcome, and soon was closeted with President Charles de Gaulle for the cli- mactic talks of his five-nation European tour. Nixon said that he came to France seeking De Gaulle's help in efforts "to build a new sense of Western aM to seek a "just and lasting peace." There was little sign of hostili- ty among the crowds who wel- comed the U.S. chief executive to this "City of Light." The out- pouring was not massive, but it was markedly warm to the American fisitor. The commu TTVU-UIHC dUUicob HI nist party had called for anti- port with the words, Nixon demonstrations when he the United States." arrived in the city.

Gaulle's U.S. policymakers have long been at odds. In return, De Gaulle recalled traditional French-American friendship and said he attached Nixon Only One Target ROME tf) President Nixon is only one of several targets on which the angry young men ol Italy havt been venting their frustra- tions. Two years ago Italy's students were considered among the most docile in Western Europe. But since student last spring erupted into bloodshed, they have become the most mili- tant. A week has not gone by without police putting down a riot or students occupy- ing a university. For many, the 1968 scholastic year was a loss. The University of Rome, with students, closed Saturday because of student occupations. This left most of the students free to riot Thursday in protest against Nixon's visit. Not that President Nixon made any move to antagon- ize the students. "He is just one more pre- text to fight for reform of the social system, the edu- cation system which is full of explained An- tonio Taddei, a mathematics student. Other targets have ranged from the Venice Film Festi- val, which students broke up last autumn, to an expensive world championship boxing bout in San Remo. The pro- test is against "bourgeois" society, display of riches, the greatest importance to the exchanges he will have with his guest. De Gaulle ended his brief western the U.S. President said in an address prepared for his arrival from Rome. "We will respect your convictions. We will strive to find areas of common under- standing. We will talk, but we will also listen. For without France there is no Europe Both your continent and our and authority imposed by "a Med- wisdom
