THE CAPITOL

showed the courage and resiliency of a young man. Before going into the operating room he wrote his weekly articles for the Temps, the Figaro and Paris-Midi. Within a week he was at work in his hospital bed. With him I followed the fluctuations of my chances and the strange manoeuvres of the last hour. There is a legend that the Academy is divided into Right and Left. In my case the dividing line in the voting was not at all political. On my side were the Permanent Secretary Goyau, the Marshal, many writers, the two scientists (the Due de Broglie and Monsieur Emile Picard); against me the Ecole Normale, which is very powerful in the Academy and which naturally supported its graduate Paul Hazard. `Oh, if only the dead could vote,' I thought in moments of anxiety, `without doubt I should have the support Lyautey, Cambon, Poincare; and Robert de Flers would campaign for me'. For the charming Robert de Flers had died in 1927 while still quite young.
Bergson, who kept me for more than two hours, said he would have liked to vote for me, but for several years had not been attending meetings of the Academy. He was in fact paralysed by arthritis deformans, and a meeting would have been torture. When I went to see him I knew he took no part in the elections and my visit was a pure matter of form. It turned out to be a delightful experience because of the importance of the subjects he discussed and the beauty of his language. Another memory left with me by that campaign was of the courage of Georges Lecomte, who was very ill and was supposed to enter a hospital but put off the day of the operation, against the advice of his doctors, in order to be able to vote. There is an academic heroism.
The day of the election, Thursday, the 23rd of June, 1938, I went for a walk in the Bois with my three children. Simone, who was passionately interested in my success, had asked a friend to telephone her the results of the balloting and waited anxiously beside the instrument. The sky was clear, the air mild and our walk was delightful. We talked gaily of a thousand things and almost forgot the hour. At the exact moment of our return the telephone rang. It was a reporter:
`Please get off the line, Monsieur,' Simone said in exasperation. `I am expecting an important communication.'
`Certainly, Madame,' he replied. `I simply wanted to tell you that your husband has been elected to the French Academy.'
My wife emitted a cry of joy and dropped the receiver. The noise
