A missile transport vehicle that looked like a long olive irab moving van and two cement-mixer-shaped parade of soldiers, 650 vehicles and 161 planes and helicopters. The equipment serves the French middle-range strategic nuclear missiles. The missiles were not shown to the thousands who came to watch in hazy, cool weather. This is the 181st anniversary of the storming of the Bastille, the _ event most closely associated with the start of the French Revolution. The army also showed off its American-made Hawk ground-to-air missile and the 20 flying missile, a French device launched like an aircraft to operate in poor weather or tactical conditions. The Foreign Legion, wearing white kepis and marching at its traditional three-quarter-speed step, was back in the ranks for the first time since 1966 after a period of banishment because of its association with political controversy. During the de Gaulle era, the legion was de-emphasized and liumiliated after some of its elements rebelled against the general in the Algiers colonels putsch. It now is fighting again b Chad against rebels trying to sreak away from the government of the former French African colony.

Mayor ents suffered some matter up with Soviet authorities during his expected visit to Moscow later this year was reported Monday to be under informal consideration. The latest reported incident occurred Sunday night, when a Russian factory ship nearly struck three Canadian fishing ships off the west coast of Vancouver Island. Last week, two episodes were reported. In one, the trawl line of a Russian boat hooked into the anchor of the Canadian vessel Seabeam and dragged the Seabeam a considerable distance before becoming disentangled. The Canadian fishing vesse; lost its anchor and chain. The other episode was similar in nature. Fisheries Minister Jack Davis was reported "disturbed" by the growing number of incidents involving the Soviet fleet, which takes up station off Vancouver island each summer In Mr. Davis' view tie present situation'poses the danger of a serious accident. He has taken the matter up with External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp, who was understood to have passed along to the Soviet embassy his criticism of the conduct of Russian trawlers. SOVIETS AT FAULT According to Canadian officials, the Russians were clearly at fault in the events of las week, since international law requires that vessels under way steer clear of other vessels lying at anchor.

It has decided to establish French-speaking divisions within some government departments, but on an experimental nasis only. Trade Minister Jean-Luc Pepin and Justice Minister John Turner, both bilingual, publicly opposed the establishment of such units, though they already exist in the armed Set Quebecers who until recently, they say, had never stood up for their own French-language rights in Quebec, let alone Ontario. They concede improvements in French-English relations in the capital are slow. But the commission was making the situation worse, not better, with open threats against the capital's livelihood. Prominent Frenchspeaking citizens of the capital say the commission never asked the views of the French-language community in Ottawa but made its report fit its own preconceived views.

The compromise is an experiment of 12 to 18 months. If it doesn't work out, say Prime Minister Trudeau and Mr. Pelletier, the units will be but not those in the navy, army and air force. The recommendation for the FrencB-speaking and English-speaking divisions in largely French-language advanced by the royal commission on bilingualism and biculturalism. Generally speaking, it is believed French-speaking people of Ontario and of Ottawa in particular are more opposed than Anglophones to the recommendation. French-speaking Ottawans have seen slow gains in bilingualism and bilingual education in the last 20 years. They are nearly all bilingual themselves. Many of them say the establishment o f French-speaking units in departments will put back bilingualism a quarter of a century. There would be French units, English units and it would be left to the truly bilingual persons, mainly Ottawans, to act merely as translators. In the meantime, the B and B commission has issued another report saying that unless Ottawa City Hall makes some concessions to French-speaking citizens, the federal government will start moving some of its agencies out of the capital. Lloyd Francis, Liberal MP for Ottawa West, described the report as "malicious." But comments of many French-speaking Ottawans were unprintable. They accuse the commission as acting as a tool for 4 jrt Handle Sea Festival Disturbance VANCOUVER (CP) A group of about 100 threw rocks at police and buildings in the city's west end early today before a fcwo-hsur demonstration was broken up. Police said the youths, m the area for a street dance in conjunction with the Vancouver Sea Festival, began rocking a car which moved down a closed-off street shortly before midnight. When police told them to disperse and then made a clean sweep of the street, the crowd began throwing rocks and other objects at police and nearby buildings. About a dozen youths werre taken into custody although information about charges was not (Reuters) Foreign Minister Maurice Schumann has warned that Britain will have to give up its attempt to enter the Common Market if it widens the exchange margin within which sterling is fixed. Schumann issued the warning, aimed against moves to let world currencies fluctuate more widely, in an unpublicized talk to an invited audience of 400 French businessmen here. His speech was published for the first time in the French business magazine L'Entre-prise. Foreign Secretary Sir Alec Douglas-Home of Britain will arrive here Wednesday to discuss the Common Market and other issues with French leaders. "L'Entreprise said Schumann spoke late, in June, shortly before Britain and the other applicants for market membership held a first formal meeting with the Common Market six in Luxembourg. Stressing the need for European concentration on monetary issues, Schumann said: "If, as a hypothesis, the International Monetary Fund tomorrow should advise enlarging (currency) margins, England could not at the same time go along with this and maintain its candidature for the Common bilingualism in the provinces. Two provinces have agreed to a federal-proposed formula t< get grants from this fund an! Mr. Pelletier says it is expectet that all the other provinces wil agree as well. The two are no identified.

Only six months ago the same establishments were blacked out each night in fear of sudden attack by Ibo aircraft. The civil war, the war that shook Africa's confidence and the world's conscience, is over, and the wounds are beginning to heal. If babies in pockets of what was once Biafra are still whimpering and crying, at least the threat of death by starvation no longer hangs over refugees. Arid if the instant brotherhood promised by the federal leaders in the first flush of victory has not come to pass, neither have the arrests dnd sweeping reprisals predicted by the Biafrans in despair of defeat. A half-year after the 31-month war ended, 800 Ibos are back working for the federal government. Little is known for sure of the circumstances of the author J-Biafran secession, Odemegwu Ojukwu, beyond the fact that he is abroad. He fled to the Ivory Coast shortly before Oie surrender, and is keeping quiet. Helped by about 100 foreigners, the newly-named state government in former Biafra has taken over from the Red Cross the care and feeding of war refugees. Relief experts are openly concerned at what they call a lack of planning and resources. There have been reports of a recent relapse in severe malnutrition, and some figures suggest that serious cases and deaths are back to about 200 a week after dropping well below that figure months ago. But a new program is under way with the emphasis on agriculture, and the program director says he can wipe out general malnutrition In a year. Already corn crops planted at war's end are offering some hope. The massive job of repairing war damage goes on. In Onitsha alone it may take to clean up the mess. That's not the end the The country is maintaining an army of nearly men who cannot quickly be denioli-bized. On the political front, things seem stable under Gen. Yakubu Gowon. He has vowed his military government will carry on until Nigeria can be sure of a smooth return to civilian rule.
