    Background: FORMER FRENCH PRIME MINISTER GEORGES BIDAULT, IN VOLUNTARY EXILE FROM FRANCE FOR SIX YEARS, HAS BEEN CAMPAIGNING HARD IN THE FORTHCOMING FRENCH GENERAL ELECTIONS. M. BIDAULT, AND ARCH ANTI-GAULLIST, IS WAGING HIS CAMPAIGN WITH THE SUPPORT OF HIS OWN RECENTLY FORMED FOUNDATION FOR LIBERTY AND JUSTICE.

    CAMPAIGNING IN THE ELECTION FOR A NEW NATIONAL ASSEMBLY ENDS AT MIDNIGHT TONIGHT, AND THE GAULLISTS ARE CONFIDENT THAT THEY WILL IMPROVE THEIR STANDING IN THE HOUSE. PUBLIC OPINION POLLS SUPPORT THEM.

    THE PRELIMINARIES SO FAR HAVE AROUSED RELATIVELY LITTLE ENTHUSIASM AMONG THE ELECTORATE, ALTHOUGH THERE HAVE BEEN SEVERAL REPORTED CASES OF VIOLENCE.

    M. BIDAULT RETURNED TO FRANCE A FORTNIGHT AGO, AFTER BEING CONVICTED OF PLOTTING AGAINST THE STATE.

    HE ADDRESSED A GATHERING IN THE PLACE DU CARDINALE AMETEE LAST NIGHT AND SPOKE IN FRENCH.
