To Enter Election
PARIS (P)-President Charles
de Gaulle conferred with Pre-
mier Georges Pompidou last
night and decided to enter the
runoff election Dec. 19, inform-
ed sources reported.
Gilbert Perol, spokesman for
de Gaulle's personal staff, said
there would be no official
statement, and Information
Minister Alain Peyrefitte re-
portedly would take up the
subject today after a regular
cabinet meeting.
The official time for an-
nouncing a .candidacy for the
second round is between the
election commission's report on
Sunday's voting and midnight

But it blinded him to the signifi-
cance of what his indispensabil-
ity meant.
It was this: In seven years he
had failed to provide the French
people with, or guide them to-
ward, a more mature political sys-
tem which could save the coun-
try from the kind of instability
which had almost destroyed it be-
fore he arrived.
Last Sunday the French showed
they didn't think he was totally
indispensable.hHe got about 44.5
per cent of the vote and now must
face his leading opponent, leftist
Francois Mitterrand, supported by
Socialists and Communists, in a
run-off December 19.
Why did the French fail to give
him the majority he needed for
election Sunday? The reasons are
not clear but perhaps they fin-

China; seemed well on his way to

talked of France leading a third
world-between the West and
Communism-made up of the na-
tions of Africa, Asia, and Latin
But while he was undermining
the Western alliance, he was pro-
viding nothing in its place. Ray-
mond Aron, one of France's most
influential political commentators,
said Europe could "not afford two
