French Cabinet In New Crisis Ramadier Ready tor Showdown With Stsonq Communist Group PARIS, May 5. <UPi—The shak> French cabinet met toilny to whether il was si rout onouyti to survive a showdown with the coin- ! miinisl Parly. The cabinet from which Premier Paul Riunudicr had ousted live Communist, ministers lJcg;m an uncertain experiment in government against the opposition ot France's biggest, toughest and most militant at 11:315 a.m.. the cabi- ijpSftcd to take u brain! siirvey O f 'policy. It "was first time since the Tibcra'ion that a coalition government hud convened without Communist representation. After a two-hour session, an official statement said much of it was devoted to a discussion of n native revolt in Madagascar. It said the "rebellion already has been restricted, but full repression must now be completed." Al::o. Finance Minister Robert Schumann was authorized tp approach other countries in search of wheat imports to tide France over a critical period until August. The statement nn (he t-abinet meeting said nothing nf consideration of 'be political crisis. The Communist-control led General Confederation of Labor at a two-hour meeting decked to support workers' demands for increased wages. The government was coin- in it led lo oppose such demands. Confidence Voted The uncertain status nf the cabinet was broughl on by an assembly vote of conlidencc yc.sicrday. Ha- madicr won it handily, although the Communists voted solidly against him. His easiest way out would have been to resign with his cnlire cabinet. He the riskier alternative of firing the Communist ministers and trying, temporarily at least, to govern wit bout them. RnmncUcr's own Socialist party was split badly on the issue. The Left Wing solidly opposed trying to carry on the coalition-against Communist opposition. They feared that would throw the Socialist Party lar | to the right, and Iftst* it tens of : thousands of labor votes through Communist bucking of nation-wide workers' demands for higher wages. The Socialist Parly's steering committee voted by ft .smnii nv.ivgiu yesterday against staying in I he government without Ihe Communists. Tlie decisive meeting of tin: Socialist National council was scheduled Irj r tomorrow. If it decides against carrying on, Hnmadicr v>i!l be forced to resign, and .1 completely new government will have to be found. Ramadicr's move was interpreter! as motivated by a c.e.Mre not in break tlic continunity of government His argument was that France had loo many urgent economic and colonial problems to face a period without a government.
