Debre's mood was described as.'serious and his report to the ambassadors'as "measured." According to informed sources, he did not at any time convey a hint, that France might con- sider leaving the Common Mar- ket a possibility that has been taken seriously by Allied diplo- mats here.. Debre spoke to the ambassa- dors a few hours after 'Herve Alphand, Secretary General of the French Foreign Ministry, had handed a formal .written protest to Christopher Soames, the Bri- tish Ambassador. Soames, who returned from .consultation with Prime Minister Harold A. Wilson and other lead- ers in London last night; had asked to see Debre. but was re- eeived by Alphand instead. The contents of the French pre- test, note were published imme- diately by Agence France-Presse, The News Agency. The note took issue particularly with the British government's ac- tion in conveying the gist of a confidential conversation between .De .Gaulle and Soames to the other members of the Common Market and the British Press. The French are more angry about these, "leaks" than about the fact that Soames's summary, in their view, distorted De Gaulle's views. Debre absolved Soames from any responsibility in the saying that those primarily re- sponsible for the crisis were "else- presumably in London, informed source said. Brandt Sees Soviet 'Deal' By EDWARD C. BURKS York Timii-Niwi (trviii NEW YORK The Soviet Un- ion apparently wants to make a "deal" to avoid any major erisii on the Berlin situation, West Ger- many's Foreign Minister Willy Brandt said here today. Speaking at a. news conference, the visiting German leader des- cribed the aims of the Bonn gov- ernment in current talks with the Russians as follows: of East German limitations on access to West Ber- lin, which is isolated 110 miles inside the Communist zone. for Berliners to make visits to either side of the divided city on a more than spo- radic basis. "The passes for Easter are not Brandt said. He referred to the latest Com- munist offer which would allow Easter visits across' the Berlin wall for the first time years. In return, however, Bonn would have to. cancel Us plan to stage its'. presidential election in West Berlin March 5. West Germany's Federal Assembly, an electoral college of state and national'dep- uties, has met in West "Berlin three times in postwar years. to select the West German Presi- dent, but this time East Germany and the Soviet Union objected strenuously. Paul J. Roussel whose resigna- tion Nov. 26 started it all. As it names a new alderman, however, Sie board will create a new vacancy by accepting the resignation of Aldennan-at-Large Arthur H. Jean. And should the. aldermen at some future meeting choose a ward alderman to succeed Jean, then another vacancy on the board would be created. There -are six candidates run- ning for Bouchard's old seat but two, James Lagios and Jay Cut- ler, are considered long shots. Other Candidates The four other candidates are Jrands H. McFarland Jr., 334 Princeton Road; Sherman D. Hor- ton Jr., 24 Swart Terrace; State Rep. Roland H. LaPlante, 70 Chandler St.; and Charles R. Fink. Horton, a sununa cum laude graduate of Dartmouth College, has received Bouchard's backing. is a member rf-.the Sullivan, Gregg Horton law firm and has been active in various GOP campaigns.

McFarland, a native of Portland, Me., is a graduate of St. Francis Xavier University, Antigonish, No- va where he majored in government and economics. He is employed as a coffee sales repre- sentative. Fink, a graduate of the Coast Guard Academy New London, Conn., moved to Nashua from Maryland three years ago. He is a nuclear engineer with the San- ders Nuclear Corp. In Maryland, he was Republican chairman for Baltimore County and played a prominent role in electing Vice President Spiro T. Agnew to the governorship. TONIGHT IN THE TELEGRAPH LaPlante, chairman of the city's1' delegation 'to the a Democrat as is Bouchard. is a licensed practical nurse and works at the Massachusetts General Hospital. Jean May Participate To enable Jean to participate in the election, it is expected his resignation will be made effec- tive only at the end'of tonight's meeting. Resignations are at the star1, of aldermanic meet- ings. It is probable a'date to name Jean's replacement will be set after his resignation is accepted. Former Alderman-at-Large Don- ald R. Hardy is considered tne leading candidate for Jean's seat. But there are reports-at least two ward aldermen, Robert A. Dion (ward 8) and Richard P. Joyce, (ward are eyeing this developing contest. And this could be a factor in tonight's election much as tlii controversial city clerk's election meshed with the alderman-at- large contest to name Roussel't successor.

(AP) Lugging two powerful television cameras, Mariner I sped on course toward Mars today. The unmanned Mariner cast I glow visible for miles Monday night as it rocketed from Cape Kennedy, Fla. Scientist! tracked; it for hours, then locked its navigation equipment on two guide points, the sun and Canopus, the brightest star in the southern hemisphere: Ahead lay a five-month, 226 J million mile journey. i Controllers at the Jet Propul- sion Laboratory in Pasadena plan to fine-tune 'Mariner'! course in about four days. "We don't expect to deter- mine whether life exists oh Mars...but we hiay be able to establish whether it could exist or 'possibly even whether it said Dr. Robert Leighton of the California Institute of Technology. He's chief scientist for the television experiments. "At the worst, we should be able to kill a lot of old as the ones that, say the dark lines seen by some astron- omers are really canals car- rying water from polar ice caps to. cases in the .desert, or ones that say the vast regions that chaiige color every, spring are vegetation." If all goes as planned, the Sfll-p o d, wndmill-shaped craft will sweep about miles over Mars, its cameras and infrared equipment seeking water vapor clouds, dust storms and vegetation. From that height the camera could pick- out an object 900 feet across. Man's closest look at Mars' surface came by way of Mari- ner 4 in a height of miles its: less powerful camera showed. a landscape pocked like earth's moon. On March 24, Mariner 7 will rocket toward Mars. The twin craft are designed to photo- graph 20 per cent of the planet'i surface.
