Background: President de Gaulle Oct 23 completed the last stage of his tour of south-eastern France, returning in the evening to Paris. Facing serous criticism over his Algerian self-determination policy and his plan for a nuclear striking force, he was given a very enthusiastic reception from the crowds along his route, which on the last day took him to Escarene, Monaco and Menton.
In Monaco, De Gaulle and Mme. De Gaulle launched with Prince Rainier and Princess Grace at the Royal Palace, and then went with their Royal hosts on a visit to the world famous Oceanographic Museum, now directed by Capt. jacques Costeau, the underwater explorer.
At Menton, he gave a warning against those who were "carving out a personal position for themselves" and trying to "weigh upon the control of France", while in other speeches he again looked forward to peace in Algeria, without adding anything significant to his former Algerian policy statements.
