The 6 foot 4 general who led France back from Ihe of World War II defeat and then saved it again from the chaos of 1958, succumbed Monday night to a ruptured aneurism, a circu- latory ailment. His death did not becooic known until today, and France plunged into mourn- ing. Far removed from Ihe mili- tary and polilical battles that memorialized him, DC Gaulle died at hi.s country home in Col- cirbey-'cs-deux-Fglises. where the funeral will be held Thurs- day with a minimum of pomp in keeping with his w.sh. No offi- cial government representative will be prcsen'., but at the same time France will have a day of national mourning wuh simulta- neous services in Nclrc Dame Cathedral and a'l Ihe nation's churches. All the church bells, in France's magnificent cathe- drals and in liny chapels, will peal out Iheir message. A little before 7 p.m. De Gaulle stepped out of his office in country retreat, put both hands below his waist, and told his wife Yvonne, "Oh, how it hurts." He slipped to the floor, and a immediately called the doctor and the Rev. Claude Jaugey, the village priest. Fath- er Jaugey said that when he ar- rived he was hurried to the sec- ond-floor room where he saw De Gaulle stretched out on the floor, fully dressed in a dark suit. Father Jaugey said De Gaulle was not dead, but seemed to be unconscious. "He was suffering the priest said. "I gave him the last riles of the Church. He was a practicing Catholic and I had no hesitation about it." An earlier account reaching Paris had said Re Gaulle was sealed in an armchair wailing for the evening television news- cast when he died. The priest said that when he led Ihe De Gaulle home the for- mer president was dead. Father Jainov ws asked to promise to remain silent. Mrs. de Gaulle, he said, reacted to her his- band's death "with perfect dig- nity. even nubility." the nation's tribute to its longtime leader will ho in ac- cordance with his wishes.
