Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Pompidou introduces new style Curtain comes down on dramatic era By CY FOX Canadian Press Staff Writer The death of Charles de Gaulle formally rings down the curtain on a dramatic era :n French foreign policy, even though his political heirs have repeatedly pledged fidelity to his principles in mapping their approach to world problems. Gaullist Georges Pompidou, the general's successor as presi- dent, introduced a new style to the conduct of French foreign relations when lie assumed off- ice last year. But he has made a point of adhering to the broad outline of policy established by de Gaulle. True to the former president's example, Pompidou continues to reject the division of the world into opposing power blocs and he also reiterates F r a n c e's claim to independence in tlio formulation of foreign policy. Moreover, after the murder of Quebec Labor Minister Pierre Laportc, the current French chief of state mixed his condem- nation of the act with an .expres- sion of continuing concern about serious events affecting the French-speaking community in Canada. TONE MODERATE The Gaullist element in such statements is obvious, but Pom- pidou has not indulged in the kind of flamboyant gestures about Quebec that were typical of the general, especially during the last stages of his 11 years in power. The war-of-nerves atmosphere prevailing in Franco-Canadia relations following tlie the president's visit to Quebec i July, 1967, began to ease afte Pompidou assumed power. The new president promise "gjcd understanding and har mony" in welcoming the recen ly-appointed Leo Cadieux as Ca nadlan ambassador to Frani last month. And, in similar fashion, Pon> pidou has seen to it that tli process of French reconciliatio with the United States is carric on, despite the suspicions ofte voiced in Paris during the d Gaulle era about American fluence.

Least of all us. Because 5 years ago, we thought.the Beetle was virtually perfect. But, because we've never been able to leave well enough alone, over 1000 improvements have been made to it since. Like: a whole new front suspension system. A bigger, more powerful engine. A new heating system that now has heaters and a total of 7 different outlets. And a new ventilation system. There's now a rear window defogger. A trunk that carries twice as much as ever. A wider track for an even belter ride. And bigger brakes for quicker stops. The end product of all this ing? The 1971 Super Beetle. There's never been another car like it. And that includes Volkswagens, J ;
