be interested to learn that General de Gaulle has accepted the invitation of the government to visit Ottawa- It is expected that he will be here in about a week's time, for a brief stay immediately following his visit to the United States. In view of the great interest which will be aroused here by the presence of this distinguished French leader, arrangements will be made, with his consent, for General de Gaulle to appear publicly on parliament hill before the proceedings of parliament open on the day he happens to be here. Details of the arrangements will be announced as soon as possible.
