PAGE TWO BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURSER NEWS THURSDAY, JULY 29, 1954 Party Rift on Suez Pact Is Threat to Churchill s Status By HAL COOPER LONDON (AP) — A serious Conservative party rift over Britain's Suez Canal Zone pact with Egypt handed the Laborite opposition a tempting chance today to force the resignation of Prime Minister Churchill. It was doubtful the Socialists would seize the chance. The test comes in a House of Commons vote tonight on Churchill's motion demanding Parliament's approval of the agreement to pull Britain's 83,000 troops out of the strategic Canal Zone. A group of 40 rebellious Conservatives, angered at seeing another bit of Britain's dwindling empire crumble away, have served notice they will vote against the government. With only a nominal Conservative majority of 20 votes in the 625-member House. Churchill thus wag in the uncomfortable. position of having to depend on his Socialist opponents for the support necessary to put his policy across. The ticklish situation in Commons was one of several troubles currently plaguing the old warrior who. has yet shown no inclinatio: to heed the urging of his wife an< doctors that he retire. • In the House of Lords there wa an almost unprecedented seen last night as Lord Reading,, min ister of state for foreign, affairs set forth the government's position in support of the Suez agreement Angered peers, who normally sup port the government, complained they had no time to study the pact They became silent only after the house leader. Lord Salisbury, one of Churchill's closest advisers withdrew a "request, for immediat approval of the agreement. Churchill was harassed also by vote of confidence. But some Socialists were reported to feel that the Suez agreement could legitimately be opposed as failing to provide Israel with guarantees against rab aggression after British troops pull out. Speaking for the pact yesterday, Foreign Secretary Anthony. Eden told Commons that Britain, together with the United States and France, was determined to guard the peace between Israel and her Arab neighbors. a Cabinet shakeup following the resignation of two of his Cabine' ministers. A third also announced he had submitted his resignation, but there was no indication whether it would be accepted. Plans ,to Keep Cyprus Abroad, Greecie served notice she would bring her demand for Cyprus before the United Nations .despite Britain's decision to grant the colony a constitution that would advance it nearer to self-rule. The Churchill government served notice : yesterday Britain plans to hold on to the fortress island in the Mediterranean, to which she plans to shift troops from the Suez. Laborite members of Commons were thoroughly enjoying the Conservatives' dilemma but they kept their plans to themselves. Most observers thought the Socialists could not vote Churchill out on the Suez issue without compromising their own principles. The official policy of the Labor party has long been in favor of pulling British troops out of the Canal Zone. Themselves badly split between the moderate followers of former .Prime Minister Clement Attlee and the leftist rebels led by Aneurin Bevan, the Laborites also would run the risk of a sound trouncing in the general election which would follow a government fall. Attlee was reported to have advised his colleagues they could not conscientiously refuse Churchill a Livestock NATIONAL STOCKYARDS, HI.

Lehman (D-Lib-NY). Lehman told the Senate McCarthy has "tragically abused and perverted" his power as chairman of the Senate Investigations subcommittee.

Brewster said he had "heard rumors" to that effect and there were indications he might be named. He said the job would not be -the subcommittee chief counsel post resigned last week by Roy M. Conn.

State Bauxite Deposits Hold Vital Element WASHINGTON (&> — Titanium and bauxite deposit* in central Arkansas may add to this nation's production of columbium — an important element used in the manufacture of jet ehginei and stainless steel. The Bureau of Mines said yesterday the Arkansas mineral deposits can yield columbium, or niobium — an alloying element. The United States presently produces only one per cent of columbium it consumes. Last year, the U. S. used 750,000 pounds. Titanium deposits and bauxite* in Arkansas are estimated to contain more than 75 million pounds of the element, but the bureau said further research is necessary before it can be recovered commercially.
