(f)— Brit- Min's labor government ta«t nigh ^«at a third ConaervaUve attemp 1 In parliament to upset the SoctalU regime. The torles unsuccessfully attacked Laborite spending policies The motion ot censure by oppo sit Ion leader Winston Churchill wai defeated 308 to 28», giving the Lab orites a winning margin of 19. The Conservative attack *«s In directly aimed at Laborite handl Ing of the nation's vast healt scheme, leaders of which had aslce< fo? extra appropriations over th amounts of their 194S-1MO budge Bndret To Be Kept But before the vote was taken S Stafford Crlpps, chancellor of th exchequer, told the House of Commons a halt would be called to expansion of the . national health service. He also warned otVer departments to adhere to their budgets. Various government departments had asked for an extra ($415.526,622) for the year ending March 31. Of this amount more than half was demanded by the National Health Service headed by the "fiery left-wing in the rabor Party, Minister of Health Aneurln Bevln. Cin»i» Defends Labor Sir Stafford, defending the government, hinted that the health service might even be cut In the future. He said: "We must bring expenditure on health into Its proper proportion with food subsidies iikiucatlon and all the other matters ^fiat vitally concern the safety and •happiness of our people." The Socllists approached this third test of power with a greater show of confidence, having weathered two other parliamentary attacks within six days. Defeat on any one of the three challenges would have forced the government, with its bare lead of six seats in Commons, to resign and make way for new British national elections.

An odd fact about the chateau: Its refrigerators could hold 25 tons of meat, but Schwab in his last years ale only a boiled egg for dinner. "Steel started going up for Ihe building last week, and It'll be finished by Nov. 1," said Fischbach. "But already It is 10 per cent rented." The apartments have about everything the wife of a city slicker might ask: automatic waste-disposal units, electric dishwashers, fireproof paint, big closets with built-in drawer space, and maid, valet, catering and shopping services. "A woman could live here forever and never even have to leave the building," .^aid Fischbach, who has learned considerable about feminine psychology. Most apartments have either two or three television ftut- (s. "Many families today ilnrt one elevlslon set Isn't enough for their eerts," he explained.

Young Fischbach and the syndicate he operates with, won by a si tuple gesture. . "We put up »1,»50,000 cash—and nobody could ,top It," he recalled. "That convinced the life Insurance company we were Investors—not s|j ecu I a tors—and they financed the mortgage for us." During the planning of the project Fischbnch learned that the cornerstone for the old Schwab chateau had been laid with a silver trowel. He located and bought It. Then he found out that in the oV days special silver trowels were fashioned for the cornerstone lay of famous buildings, a custom .hat now has pretty much died out. He has about 20 of these fancy old trowels—they .cost from $25 to HOD—but he has to keep them In his office. "I do that to keep them away from my wife," he grinned.
