This jibes with the desires of

But in Paris, premier Charles
de Gaulle was said to be still
opposed to a summit level meet-
ing of I he Security Council. The
15 ambassadors to the NATO
Council met for two hours but
were unable, it was said, to
end the split between France
and her Allies.
For American officials the best
possible news was the election
of Maj. Gen. Faud Chehab as
president of Lebanon with gov-
ernment and rebel backing.
Presumably the Lebanese el-
ection was a subject of discuss-
