PARIS (P)--President Charles
de Gaulle yesterday ordered the
National Assembly dissolved as a
prelude to parliamentary elections,
thus carrying his fight for con-
stitutional reform to the people
in two separate ballotings.
He formally received the resig-
nation of Premier Georges Pom-
pidou and "took note" that Pom-
pidou's cabinet had been over-
thrown by the assembly on the re-
form issue-de Gaulle's demand
for popular election of French
presidents. Then he decided to dis-
solve the assembly and call elec-

First balloting for the assembly
thus might take place Nov. 4,
with runoff elections later.
Pompidou was toppled early
Friday when the national assem-
bly adopted a motion of censure
condemning de Gaulle's plan to
amend the constitution by refer-
endum so that future presidents
would be elected by popular vote.
The present system is for election
by a college of about 80,000 per-
sons, including members of Parlia-
ment, departmental and munici-
pal officials.
Specifically, the assembly con-
demned de Gaulle's plan to put
through such an amendment by
national referendum rather than
by parliamentary action. The op-
position, which mustered 280
votes, well above an absolute ma-
jority of 241, contended that the
constitution itself requires parlia-

Associated Press News Analyst
States pulled the last of its mili-
tary advisory group out of Laos
yesterday under a risky policy of
trying to save that southeast
Asian kingdom from Communism
by giving it a protective covering
of neutrality.
Both President John F. Ken-
nedy and Soviet Premier Nikita S.
Khrushchev are committed to up-
hold and indeed enforce this neu-
trality. But Washington officials
are uneasy about whether Khrush-
chev will be able to make his will
felt in the Laotian jungles, even
assuming his intentions are of the
The critical test issue in the
still . smoldering Laotian contro-
versy is whether the remaining
thousands of tough, well-trained
troops and technicians from Com-
munist North Viet Nam will be
pulled out of Laos in the immed-
iate future.
Escape Devise
Whether Khrushchev sees the
East-West deal on Laos mainly as
a device to permit the United
States to withdraw gracefully from
the country as an alternative to
putting its own forces in there
is an important question. If Khru-
shchev regards the neutrality
agreement as a cover for United
States retreat he could very well
believe that Kennedy would not
seriously expect him to hold Com-
munist forces in the area indef-
initely in check.
Kennedy administration offi
cals, however, say privately they
believe Khrushchev intends to
stick with the agreement because
it was in his interest to avoid a
war in Laos and now his reputa-
tion is involved in the agreement
to neutralize it.
A more serious question seen
here is whether Khrushchev really
has a controlling interest over
Communist military activities in
Southeast Asia or whether the
North Vietnamese leader, Ho Chi

Minh, makes decisions primarily
under the belligerent influence of
the Chinese Communists.
The final contingent of 25
United States officers and 53 en-
listed men, under command of
Maj. Gen. R. H. Tucker, flew out
of Vientiane, the administrative
capital of Laos, for Bangkok yes-
terday morning. The group had
once numbered 800 officers and
men. The Americans had played
a decisive role in keeping anti-
Communist forces fighting in Laos
when the Reds threatened to
conquer the whole country.
In recent years, however, Wash-
ington increasingly despaired of
generating any real military pow-
er on the anti-Communist side,
especially a force capable of deal-
ing with attacks by the thousands
of battle-hardened troops put in-
to the country from North Viet
Nam. It was evidently this hard-
ening military prospect which led
Kennedy and Assistant Secretary
of State W. Averell Harriman, di-
rector of Far Eastern foreign
policy, to push theneutrality deal.
Khrushchev presumably con-
sidered neutrality a bargain from
his point of view because he did
not want to take unnecessary risks
of becominginvolved in a major
war in Southeast Asia.
Strengthen Forces
The United States meanwhile
poured into South Viet Nam far
greater forces than it had ever
sent to Laos and thereby strength-
ened its military position in the
area and in a country which
Washington considered more de-
fensible than Laos.
The neutralization agreement

provided for withdrawal of all for-
eign forces from Laos by this
weekend. United States officials
believe some thousands of North
Vietnamese have been pulled out.
But they are convinced other
thousands remain in the country.
Nevertheless they decided to with-
draw United States military men
as proof of good faith. The Ameri-
cans remaining in the country are
diplomats and a civilian aid mis-
sion of a little more than 100
Even if all the Vietnamese
troops get out, many obstacles re-
main in the way of real neutral-
ity for Laos. The military forces
of the country are still divided
among Communist, anti-Commun-
ist and neutralist leaders. The ter-
ritory of the Communists still has
what State Department officials
call a "jungle curtain" around it.
The neutralist government of
Prince, Souvanna Phouma still has
no real authority and no real pow-
er to enforce its will.

About an hour after the shoot-

the British furnish an ambulance

British Chief
Defends Plan
To Join EEC
LONDON () - Prime Minister
Harold Macmillan yesterday called
his conservative government's de-
termination to join the European
Common Market "perhaps the
most fateful and forward-looking
policy decision in our peacetime
"The time is past for harping
on old disputes and nursing obso-
lete conceptions," Macmillan wrote
in a precedent-shaking party
pamphlet spelling out why he
thinks Britain must join the six-
nation European Economic Com-
munity. It already includes France,
West Germany, Italy, the Nether-
lands, Belgium and Luxembourg.
Recalling that he had explained
these reasons in the recent con-
ference of Commonwealth prime
ministers, Macmillan said, "I firm-
ly reject the view that Britain is
faced with a choice between the
Commonwealth and Europe...
The problem before us is how to
reconcile these two structures, not
to divide them."
Fears for the future of the Com-
monwealth and for British sover-
eignty havebeen the two most
potent weapons of antimarketeers
Macmillan gave political and
economic argument boiled down
to his belief that Britain would
suffer loss of political influence
and of economic opportunity if it
stayed aloof.

why do a majority of collegians feel that christianity is irrelevant? they may feel
"faith" is for the weak and unsophisticated. or the form of christianity they are
rejecting is irrelevant. but is it possible, as walter lippman has observed, that they
have rejected a caricature of the real thing?
