The climax referred to was the visit to Canada later in 1967 by then President de Gaulle o France, cut short after his pub- lic as Vive le Quebec found "un acdeplable" by then prime min ister Lester Pearson. 1860, Gen. de Gaulle visitec his wartime friend, Gen. Van- ier, in Ottawa but then refused ot accept a return visit by the governor-general on the ground Gen. Vanier was not the head of state. There are scores of other rev- elations in UK biography by Mr. Speaight, a British lecturer and actor who was a close friend of Jie Vaniers for many years. FLAWED BY EDITING The biography is flawed by some atrocious editing. For instance, the prime min- ister who appointed Gen. Vanier s referred to in the. preface, text, picture cutlines and index as John F. Diefenbaker. Mr. Diefenbaker's middle name is ieorge. The name of Governor-Gen- eral is spelled incor- rectly. The New Brunswick leg- slature is referred to as Parlia- ment. Mr. Diefenbaker's defeat n book says down to a dispute between irovincial and federal Conserv- atives. However, the portrait of a nan who deliberately chose to ie French-speaking and who served the cause of national unity for more than half a cen- tury shines as clear as crystal. The Vaniers had been -mar- ried for 38 years and never had a home until the genera] was. appointed governcr-gen- sral. Gen. Vanier on returning rom his interview with Mr. )iefenbaker about the appoint- ment told his wife: "Well, Pau- ine, I think I've found you a louse." Mr. Speaight says President rohn F. Kennedy dreaded mcet- ng de Gaulle and during his of- icial visit to Canada picked ten. Vanier's brains about the 'rench leader.

SORRENTO, Italy (AP) Italian bureaucracy has foiled a gimmick to pass out some stuffed Snoopy dogs to film fans who watched A Boy Named Charlie Brown open the Sor- rento Film Festival. The stuffed snoopies were still in the hold of a ship docked in nearby Naples. Port authorities there were waiting for special permission from Uie minister of health before uncrating them.
