PA'CM TWVLTS Mollet Wins Confirmation From Assembly Becomes France'f First Socialist Premier Since 1947 PARIS I*—France's first Socialist Premier since 1«M toofc over the governmental reins today, heading a non-Communist leftist coalition pledged to prompt nego- toitions to end the costly Algerian conflict. The Socialist party secretary general who once taught high school English was confirmed as the nation's 22nd postwar Premier by an unusually large majority of the National Assembly early today. The vote was 420-71 with 83 abstentions. The chamber's 15.1 Communists gave their votes to Mollet to pressure him for the "popular front" tieup they seek with the Socialists. To counter this, the Catholic MRP (Popular Republican Movement) and other moderate groups voted with Mollet's Republican Front of Socialists and Radicals, and most rightists abstained. This gave the new Premier a majority o those voting without the Reds. The Republican Front, which Mollet leads Jointly with Radica party leader Pierre Mendes-France actually has only about 180 votes in the 596-mernber Assembly. Be cause of this the government is generally conceded a life expec tancy of only three or four months. The Premier's streamlined 13 man Cabinet includes seven Social ists, three Radicals, one nonparty man. and two others from splinter groups. Mendes-France is deputy premier without control of any ministry. In outlining his policy, before the vote, Mollet called for a new freely elected Algerian assembly whose leaders could negotiate a new "unbreakable" relationship with France.. In line with his promise to work urgently and personally to halt the fighting in the North African territory, he is expected to fly to Algiers soon. Continued fighting across the mediterranean underlined the urgency of new negotiations. Seventysix rebels were killed in scattered battles yesterday, including 20 in a clash in the Aures Mountains. French casualties were not announced. The Premier's policy statement also promised to strengthen the six-nation Western European Union and the North Atlantic Alliance as keys to peace and liberty. Mollet said his government intends before summer to sign a treaty with France's five WED partners — West Germany, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg—setting up a pool of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. A pioneer in the European unity movement, Mollet now is serving his second term as president of the council of Europe's Consultative Assembly. Foreign Minister Christian Pineau, also a Socialist, supported the ill-fated European army plan before the National Assembly killed it in 1954 during Mendes-France's term as premier.

Atty. Gen. Gentry, as legal representative for the Commission, filed a general demurrer. This said, in layman's language, that all the allegations of Southland were true, but they were of no effect—that the Commission had the discretionary power to act as it did. Judge Smith disagreed. He said Act 339 did not establish the legality of greyhound racing, that such was not unlawful. The act did provide a tax on racing and established rules for pari-mu- tual betting. The act said that aff- er the plant was built "the commission may grant the license, provided the officers and directors are reputable citizens of the State ol Arkansas and have filed the necessary bond as required by the act." The Word, 'May' Much emphasis was placed on the word "may," Judge Smith pointed out, at a hearing Jan. 10 on the demurrer. Defendants said the word clothed the Commission with discretionary powers. Judge Smith, in his opinion, said the discretion was granted the Commission so that it could be exercised "in such a manner as to enable it to carry out the purpose of the act, not to defeat it." The discretion, he said, was limited to determination as to whether the plant was completed sufficiently to justify tile beginning of its operation, whether the plant was in good condition and not a hazard to the public, and whether the officers were reputable citizens of the state. There, Judge Smith's opinion indicated, the discreation ended. If the Commission found that the requirements were fulfilled, Judge Smith said, Then it, was without power to withhold the issuance of the certificate of permit." He went further to point out language In Act 339 which said that after the application has been approved by Die Commission "the CommUekm shall grant to the applicant ... the certificate of permit." The Commission noted, not oy ren*on of any failure of Southland to comply with Uie law, Judge Smltli snld, but for an entirely different reason not contemplated by (he «t«tut«.

The dispatch of American troops to the Middle East, as things now stand, could have far- reaching repercussions in an election year. The two-power talks, which began Monday, are scheduled to end with a White House session late this afternoon. Officials said a final summary statement would be issued promptly. In two days of discussion the British and American governmnt chiefs and their foreign ministers have aired problems and disagreements rangnig from Europe to the Far East. They have touched also on such matters as general cold war strategy and plans for further disarmament efforts through the U.N. Indications are that basic policy differences between Britain and the United States on Red China and on some other issues have not been resolved. But ,there are'also signs of determination on both sides not to permit them to interfere with British-American cooper- auon, Eisenhower is understood t have urged Eden to stand firm ir support of present political an economic sanctions against Com munist China, In particular, he ha sought British agreement to kee the issue of seating Red China ir the U. N. in suspense for anothe year. Recognizes Red Chine Britain recognizes Red China the United States does not. Fo several years the British hav agreed to help stall Russian pro posals to displace Nationalist Chim in the U. N.. This has kept Britaii and the United States from pulling apart openly. The British, on the, other, hand are* understood to have pressei for a relaxation of restrictions or trade with Red China. The meeting of the two head; of government and their adviser at the White House yesterday afternoon was one of a series whicl included a session between Dulle and British Foreign Secretar; Sehvyn Lloyd earlier in the day Last night there was a dinner ses sion. at Dulles' home, Lloyd aru Eden attended, but Eisenhower dii not. Among specific Middle Eastern problems discussed was the bitte' political conflict between Britain and SautU Arabia. This grows ou of a dispute, between the two ove; possession of the Buraimi oasi; in the southeastern corner of the Arabian peninsula. Buraimi, the center of the potential oil-produc ing area, is claimed by the British backed Sultan of Muscat. Eden came here seeking sup port for Britain's position and use of American influence with th< Saudi Arabian government t* make a settlement.
