    Background: PRESIDENT DE GAULLE OF FRANCE TODAY (SUNDAY) AGAIN CRITICISED WHAT HE CALLED THE CRUELLY PROLONGED VIETNAM WAR WHICH HE SAID PREVENTED THE ACHIEVEMENT OF WORLD PEACE.

    THE GENERAL WAS ADDRESSING TOP REPRESENTATIVES OF THE FRENCH MAGISTRATURE, ADMINISTRATION, ARMY AND UNIVERSITIES AND THE DIPLOMATIC CORPS, WHO WENT TO THE ELYSEE PALACE TO PRESENT HIM TRADITIONAL NEW YEAR GOOD WISHES.

    PRESIDENT DE GAULLE SAID: "BARRING AN UPHEAVAL WHICH COULD DESTROY THE INSTITUTIONS EXEMPLARY FOR THEIR EFFICIENCY AND CONTINUITY WHICH OUR PEOPLE HAS BESTOWED UPON ITSELF FOR THE PAST EIGHT YEARS, ONE MAY FORECAST IN 1967 THE EXPANSION OF THE ECONOMY, SOCIAL REFORMS, NATIONAL EDUCATION... THE CONSTRUCTION OF EUROPE."
    HE SAID FRANCE'S MARCH TOWARDS PROGRESS WOULD IMPLY CONSIDERABLE EFFORT FROM PUBLIC POWERS.
