Faure will decide whether to use this weapon as the debate develops and he forms an idea of the government's chances of winning approval of Its program without- a confidence vote. The discussion is believed to carry some danger lor the government. In the face of a series of reversals for French policy varied Ironts, deputies are restless and inclined to blame Faure and his ministers. Closely linked to the debate Is the Premier's proposal for an advanced date for parliamentary elections. Deputies who are opposed to this idea would like to remove Faure—but on another issue. The debate is on a question by Socialist Christian Pineau on what th« government plans to propose to th« Assembly to cover the ex- tions In North Africa.

ELECTION {Continued Irom Page 1) ipalities — Dell, Luxora and Kelser — jue unopposed. Hyatt said this morning that he bfheves political difference is healthy imcl that Osceola 1ms boon hurt by falling into a political indifference. "The reason I am running," he said, "is that I feel we have fallen nuo a rut in Osceola and that a change would be healthy, and is needed at this time to provide better government, .schools, civic and business advantages over what we've had in the past." Platform He listed three major items in his platform: commission form of operation of Osceola Light and Power Plant, more efficient police department, and government for all with the Council supervising the ci'.y's operation rather than "pretty much a one-man rule as it has been for ttie past number of years." Hyatt pointed out that the contest is "not a clash of personalities, but merely an effort t-o see if my philosophy of government will not pro- vine us with a better community." Mnyor Butler echoed this feeling. "I am not critical of Hyatt." he said, "but I am critical of his being influenced by some of the people who are supporting him." "I'm running strictly on what I' Ve been able lo do for Osceolu, on what contributions I've made to better the town and bring in industry and on how I've gotten along with the people," he said. On the Light and Power Plant issue, he said. "We have tried the commission form of operation and operation by the City Council and we actually think it can be handled better by the Council." The Council now supervises operation of the plant through its Light and Power committee. Confidence in Police He expressed confidence in the police department, though he said one change in personnel appears indicated for the near future. Butler said he favored continuation of the practice, in force for many years, of supplying free lights and power for all schools and churches in town. He pointed out that practically all street paving in Osceola has been accomplished during his administration, saying that the few remaining unpaved streets are due to be surfaced next year. Butler was on the City Council for several terms before becoming mayor. Hyatt served one term as alderman" (1950-1952) and was defeated in a bid for chancellor of the 12th Judicial District by Lee!
