(/P)—Prime . ->™nlster Attlce's cabinet met tot»tv to discuss the slap Winston Church- Ill s Tories dealt last night by sneaking In a victory over the Labor government In the House of Commons. The vote was on a mere parlia- vnentary technicality as to whether to a'djourn—not Important enough an Issue to cause the government to resign—but It was a sign of what the Laborltoj can expect at every turn. Labor's maJA-ity in the Commons has been cut to only three seals. Under British liorliamentary system the government must resign If defeated on any major policy Issue. House Surprised The Tory needle struck the House by surprise, a lot of members were absent, some without explanation. As a drab debate on Labor's handling of gasoline and coal supplies droned to a close, Tory members and some of the Liberal allies began filtering into Commons in strength, some of them dressed in evening wear. They obviously had been tipped off." Then, without warning, they forced through the technical .motion to adjourn the night's session and won by a vote of 283 to 257. Atltee's party whips Immediately began to Investigate the reason for the heavy absenteeism among their Labor Party was 55 under In. Some members were at political meetings, others had private engagements. Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin was off to Strasbourg for a meeting of the Council of Europe.

To support his charges of Communism in Britain's churches, Van- sUtart cited three members of the Church of England clergy by name. Two denied his charges. The tlUrd ] Dr. Hewlett Johnson, known as the ] "Red Dean of Canterbury," said he would ignore the peer. The Lalx>r governmeill's Lord Chancellor Lord Jowett, said all possible steps were being taken to counter subversive activities. Government investigations of suspected Communists and Fascists, he continued, had uncovered only 74 persons to be "dealt with" in 30 months. Calling Cannon Gilbert Cope a "particularly murderous priest," Vsnstlttart said the clergyman in a pamphlet had adVocated killing off political opponents and "the distribution of the loot among the boys who did the job." Cannon Cope, in Birmingham, said the peer had "distorted" his writing!: and misrepresented the facts. He denied he was or had been a Communist.
