Conservatives See No Chance Of Regaining Rule in Britain LONDON (UP)—Thci Conservative Party tras committed to a demand for an early general election by Its Brighton conference. Party leaders privately see little hope of returning to power for another five to seven years unless I he economic crisis gets a' lot worse. Only a Labor government can cali a general election before the present parlimcnt is scheduled lo expire Jn 1950. High government spokesmen repeatedly have said they have no intention of going to the people for a new mandate before then. Top Conservative leaders believe they stand a good chance of recovering in 1950—or before then if the government calls a general election —perhaps half the 170 seats they lost, in 1945. But they conceded privately they probably could not overcome the present Labor plurality of V06 until the following general election, presumably In 1955^ If then. Signs of Life Nevertheless, tlie Conservatives showed more signs of life and recovery at their Brighton conference than at any time since their IMS disaster. Tlie progressive and younger elements of the party showed for tlie first time decisively that they were in control. Overwhelming approval partly completed the project In I 1945, when tlie Russians arrived and took all but two generators. of Hie "industrial -I'nrler" drawn up by the party's industrial policy committee sent the Tory dlehards reeling. The charter would continue the nationalizition of the conl mines and the Dank of England, but the nationalized road transport would restore a "lot of freedom" to and civil aviation and would revive the Liverpool Cotton Market, abolished by the Labor government. It called for a nicnsiue of central planning. The dlehards announced the charier as "milk and water Social- Urn." The national executive recommended acceptance of the charter only as a basis for discussion, but progressives won Us endorsement as party policy with only three dissents. > Funds Offered Other signs at Brighton of the rejuvenation ot the party were the opening of a drive forLb. 1,000,000 os an election campaign fighting fund and the fact that more than 60 per cent of the speakers were under 40 years of age. The fighting fund will give more party members a personal Interest in tlie election campaigns and enable more candidates drawn from middle and even working classes without independent means to stand as Conservative candidates. Winston Churchill, leader of the party, resisted all efforts to commit it to a detailed program.
