PARIS - French police barred
Stokely Carmichael from France
last night, preventing him from
speaking at a rally called to de-
nounce the war in Vietnam, of-
ficial sources said.
The sources reported that Car-
micael, who was detained at Orly
Airport, would be put aboard a
plane today for any destination of
his choice. He had arrived from
Stockholm via Copehagen.
Though the reason for Carmi-
chael's detention was not explain-
ed, the sources said Carmichael
had been told by Swedish police
before his departure from Stock-
holm that he would be considered
"undesirable on French territory."
Carmichael was scheduled to
address the anti war rally tonight.
First word of his detention came
from one of the rally organizers.
Officials then conceded that he
