The- • Socialist • premier now is expected to win his 34th vote o-E confidence from the National Assembly by a narrow margin in -a showdown on Mollet's highly-controversial tax increase measure. Informed sources said that whi lea majority of the deputies may not agree with MoUet's basic policies they are reluctant to vote against him and thus precipitate a crisis in these critical times in France's international affairs. Major factor weighing in Mollet's favor was Soviet Premier Nikolai. Bulganiri's note which may be inlerpreted as an attempt to frighten France with the bugaboo of hydrogen warfare. The note suggested bilateral -talks on international issues and carried a warning that a "few hydrogen bombs would be enough to 'turn a large area into a desert."
