REPORTER: Walter Cronkite
(Paris, France) Interim President Alain Poher loses poster battle. As President of Senator, he regularly followed DeGaulle. Trotskyist candidate Alain Krivine is ultraradical. Independent millionaire Louis Ducatel claims to be above ptys. Socialist Michel Rocard attracts students and intellectuals. Leftists back Communist Jacques Duclos. Mayor Marseille, Gaston Defferre is moderate-socialist. 40% back former DeGaulle P. Min., Georges Pompidou, who inherited Gaullist machine. Poher emphasizes change, lower taxes, Britain in Common Mkt., neutral Mideast policy, and strong united Europe.
