Paris Dispatch triumph brings troubles

Gorlell, Frank
December 1954
New Republic;12/6/54, Vol. 131 Issue 23, p5
This article discusses French statesman Pierre Mendes-France's trip to the United States. It has been considered successful for its own political good at home. It has been a moderate success. Although, success has too much a personal triumph for the man himself, but it was a moderate success overall. Inevitably this stirred up a turgid brew of envy and enmity among some of the men in the French assembly. It is not an advantage for a French statesman whose greatest strength has come from the liberals. Nor is it an advantage for the acclaim which the Premier won in the U.S. to find echoes in a quite different area of French public opinion.
