    "President Giscard's arrival in the U.S.... fitting tribute to his country's reputation for pride. He came in ... Concorde. The flight from paris ... took 3 hours 20 minutes...."



    "The two leaders... went through the conventional state visit ceremony which includes a review of the troops. They praised the close relationship between the two countries, President Giscard reciting his speech in French and then in English.



    During a 2 hour Oval Office meeting, they discussed among other things black nationalism in Africa. Tonight President Ford hosts a state dinner at the White House.



    Tomorrow night President Giscard is the host at a dinner at the french Embassy when much attention will be riveted on returns from the Michigan primary. President Ford has called his home state primary a "must win" situation. Around the White House today there was public confidence but private nervousness. Ford camp strategists had hoped to boost the Michigan effort over the weekend by persuading a number of uncommitted delegates from other states to publicly declare for the President but those delegates had decided to wait until after the Michigan primary to make their move.
