    Background: Nancy/Bourges....French President Charles De Gaulle left Paris the afternoon of May 14th for Nancey where he inspected a new ???telescope and Bourges where he was shown about the city's new cultural center by Culture Minister Andrew Malraux.

    The French President arrived in Nancey by helicopter. The radio telescope there is reported to be the largest of its kind in the world. With it French scientists plan to study radio signals from CTA 102-- a source of signals some scientists believe might come from a distant civilisation.

    From Nancey, the President drove to Bourges, De Gaulle's motorcade was stopped many times by swarms of enthusiastic villagers along the way. The brief provincial trip would seem to indicate that De Gaulle is still a favourite with the crowds. Typically disregarding security arrangements, he slowed down the motorcade to mingle with the crowd, shake hands and pat the heads of the children.

    Inspecting the cultural center of Bourges, De Gaulle pledged his government to maintain high standards of French culture. He said, "in our modern world culture is not only a refuge and a consolation in an essentially mechanical, materialist and hurried world, it is also the condition of our civilization." He added that no matter how fast modern civilization may push ahead, "it is the mind which will be in command."
    After inspecting the Bourges center-- the first of some 24 to be built in provincial towns-- De Gaulle left by helicopter for his Lorraine Province residence at Colombey le Deux Eglises, where he is to spend the weekend.
