FWIMT, Vf, (AM.) COOTHHl Faure Asks New Confidence Vote On Election Issue By IUKVKV HUDSON PARIS (AP) — Premier Edgar Faure, fighting against delays in his program for quick elections, asked today for a vote of confidence on the question of starting debate next week for an electoral reform law. The vote will be on a procedural question. The agenda committee of the Assembly this morning decided that a debate should start Tuesday on a question submitted by Francois Milterand, former minister of the interior. His question denounces indecision on the Commodity And Stock Markets— New York Cotton (12:30 quotations) Dec 3437 3438 3434 3438 Mar 3344 3349 3338 3343 May 3289 3296 3282 3289 July 3188 3197 3181 3191 Hew Orleans Cotton Dec 3435 3435 3435 3435 Mar 3349 3349 3339 3348 May 3289 3297 3285 3285 July 3185 3199 3179 3191 Chicago Wheat Dec .... 203 203% 203 203V- May ... 203 203'/a 202 203ft Chicago Corn Dec .... 124% 1251/4 123VB 134 May .... 133><2 133% 132% 132% Chicago Soybeans Jan .... 232 = 2 233>/. 222& 233"/ 4 Mar .... 234 3 /4 236 234% 235>/ 2 May.... 235!A 236'/ 2 335& 236ft July .... 233 234 233 233% New York Stocks A T and T 180 3-4 Amer Tobacco 76 7-8 Anaconda Copper 73 1-2 Beth Steel 15. 7-8 Chrysler 98 Coca-Cola 128 7-8 Gen Electric 52 3-8 Gen Motors 50 Montgomery Ward 103 5-8 N Y Central 44 5-8 Int Harvester 36 1-4 Republic Steel 51 Radio 46 7-8 Socony Vacuum 58 1-8 Studebaker 10 1-$ Standard of N J 147 1-4 Texas Corp 118 Sears 117 U S Steel 5i part of the government and implies that the Faure regime is no longer capable of carrying on.

May Not Get Backing Until he brought up the idea o! voting in December, instead of next June as regularly scheduled, the Premier had been able to patch up Assembly majorities to'approve major policies. Now it seems doubtful he can get backing for anything. The election issue gave former Premier Pierre Mendcs-France find other lea'Mnff Radical Socialist deputies the chanre to move into open opposition. Fmn'o i-s also a Radical Socialist, but many in embers, of his party for a lonp; time 1 .ve supported "lim only to make a show ot party unity, On the last two votes of confidence on Faure's demand for December elections under 0 system of proportional representation, the Cabinet survived only through the backing of the Communists. Faure's troubles started Oct. 6 when he ousted four Social Republican (Gaullist) ministers who openly opposed hir policies in Morocco. Since then, he has had no assured working majority of the Assembly. December elections now are out of the question. There is still a sl'm hope for a January vote, but few deputies believe that even this is possible. There seems almost r rhance for a: y vigorous action in any field by the government during: the present state of uncertainty over elections.

SEGREGATION (Continued from Page 1) race. 1 ; is usually interpreted as noting the inferiority of the Negro race.; The commission recalled that race discrimination complaints have been coming before it since two months after its organization in 1887. | In thai year, the ICC ruled that solutions ".should aim at a result most likely to conduce (sic) to peace and order, and to preserve tlr st*U respect and dignity of citizenship of a common country." Circumstances Different However, the commission said that present circumstances are far different from those of 1887, adding: "It is hardly open to question, race relations has been made since then and that .more can be expected." Through the years, the ICC sanctioned "the separate-but-equal" accommodations in the transportation fit-Id. About 10 years ago, it gave its approval to an arrangement worked out by the Southern Railway for serving Negro travelers in its dining cars behind a curtain, The Supreme Court in 1950 condemned this, striking 1 down segregation in railroad dining cars. Under orders from the court, the ICC issued the appropriate orders relating to diners. Desegregation orders were entered against a group of other railroads and the Carolina Coach, Co.
