Vigilance Asked An order of the day passed by th« auembly expressed confidence th*t t*M Pleven government would "puraut a general policy of vigilance, domestic and foreign." Th« assembly also "gave homage *o the courage and integrity" of Defense Minister Jules - Moch, who h» been under heavy parliamentary fire all week. ^ A vote was made necessary by a Communist attempt to Impeach Moch on the complaint that he had tried to cover up an army scandal Involving the leak of a secret report on Indochina, where the French are fighting a Commimlst- k>d rebellion. Many -non-Communists took atl- Yantage of an unusual secret bnllot earlier this week to censure Moch. The vote for impeachment^235 to SOS—was only 51 short of the ab- •oltlte'majority required.

To give last flight's vote more stature, Pleven linked it with the acceptance of 190.000,000,000 francs (about 4540,000,000) in new taxes needed for rearmament. Obituaries B. W.

The entireties can only be as strong as there is strength and Intensity °f conviction and experience," declared the Rt. Rev. Henry Sheirill of Greenwich, Conn., presiding bishop of tue Protestant Episcopal Church. The first president of the council, he spoke at the convention's closing session last night. "Tlie real problem which confronts the churches," he told several hundred delegates, ''is not the strength of the enemy without, but the quality of the spiritual life within." Bishop siierrill also called for church "extended and applied to every aspect of life." "There can be no artificial division between the sacred and the secular. The gospel has to do with international relations, with peace or war, with the atom bomb, with economic conditions, with family life, for nothing human can be alien to the love 'of God In Christ. "The churches, if they are expressions of the purpose and will of God, cannot be limited , , . to. special fields 'of worship. "For if worship Is real, then action must follow—for all of life belongs to God. Once we have tlie conviction that there is a saving gospel, then that gospel must be ctended and applied (o every aspect of life." The greatest tragedy oi the world, he said, "Is that God is forgotten."
