Vote Delayed By Leader In Africa Fight Showdown Averted Uiilil Next Week, Debate Is Shut Off By HARVEY HUDSON PARIS Wi-Faced by likely defeat in the National Assembly on Algerian policies, Premier Edgar Faure postponed the showdown early today by calling for %• vote of confidence in his government. The demand keeps him in office at least until Tuesday, when the vote will be held. In the meantime, the Premier will try to work out lifesaving maneuver such as spared his government lost Sunday on the question of Morocco. The call for a vote of confidence automatically shut off debate for 24 hours, and the deputies decided to extend the cooling-off period until Tuesday. If the' government loses on a question of confidence, it resigns. Has Lacked Majority Faure's seven-month-old government has been in difficulties since the Moroccan debate. Four Gaullist minsters, in open opposition to Faure's program of conciliation of Moroccan nationalists, were forced out by the Premier, and since then Faure has 1 lacked a dependable majority in the As- . sembly.

The deputies never got around to 'actually voting on the substance of any of the resolutions during the all-night session. The deputies refused to consider one resolution by Faure's Radical Socialist party, by a 305-274 vote. Four of the rejected resolutions said the Assembly had no confidence in'the government. Most of them called for immediate efforts to improve economic and political conditions for Algerians, but failed to agree on a formula. With priority refused for all resolutions, the rules called for a debate on the first one offered, by the Radical Socialists. It is upon this resolution that the vote of confidence will be held. Reforms Promised The resolution promises that the government will put down terrorism in Algeria, start projects to raise the standard of living, work out political reforms with the concurrence of Algerian residents and apply other political reforms which were voted in 1947 but never carried out.
