Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 29, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 TM irrHWOW HoWLO De Gaulle's Standing Rises Again In French Opinion Poll PARIS (Rculers) One year ago today Charles de Gaulle va- cated the presidency of France and warned of national chaos to come. It hasn't. The general, April 23, 1969' advised France of the end of his 11 years of near-monarchic rule. !n his last speech before a referendum defeat which prompted him to quit, de Gaulle warned darkly of a "return to the interplay of ambitions, illu- sions, schemes and treason" and of a national upheaval if he was forced to resign. But, France appears content to have traded the heroic leader of the Second War Free French for the more prosaic and businesslike Georges Pom pidou. Pompidou draws strongly on Gaullist tradition but interprets It in his own way. De Gaulle has remained silent at his countr> hxne in Cokanbey-les-deux Eglises in eastern France. POPULARITY RISES A public-opinion poll puh here this week showec the general's standing with the French public risug again, and 57 per cent of the people ques- tioned said they were satisfied with his performance as pres .dent. The poll by French Institul of Public Opinion showed tha 40 per cent were satisfied with his decision to resign a year ago, while 32 per cent were ui happy about it. In a similar po last November, the figures wer 49 per cent and 23 per cent spectively.'. The remainder each case expressed no opinion.
