Pearson sought today to prevent his Cabinet's rforced resipatlon wilh a vole of confidence to offset the defeat of a key tax bill in the House of Commons. • The Conservatives opposed the confidence vote, arguing 'that the only course open to the minority Liberal governmnnl 'after Its defeat Monday was to call a general election. Debate on the government's motion for fa vole was expected to continue into next week, a delay which could bring other opposition leaders around to Pearson's -view that most Canadians aren't ready for their third gen eral election in less years. Pearson, who cut short a vacation In Jamaica, contended "that the 84-82 defeat of the 5 per _ cent income tax surcharge was ".'accidental and "a hazard of ml- ".norlty government." The prime minister said such ^defeats would mean "a lot of Selections" if they were regarded '."as tests of confidence. Bui he ,''said if he loses the confidence ".vote, "then of course the gov- ^ernment resigns." The tax bill had been approved on Its earlier second Dreading, and approval on third 'reading is usually,,a routine ; matter. But Monday night some ."of the Liberal leaders were off ~ campaigning to succeed Poar- 'son, who Is retiring in the ^spring; 46 of the 130 Liberal * MPs were absent, and alert op' position members rushed (he bill to its final reading and defeat. With the Liberals divided by gthe seven-man fight to succeed |the 70-year-old prime minister, gConservative, leader Robert L. sStanfield apparently scented 5 prospective gains for his Con- Hservatives. 5 Stanfield said the defeat on sthe tax bill was "a matter of E fundamental importance" and 5 called on the government to re- 5 sign. i Sprlngdale to I Vote on Bonds 5 SPRINGDALE, Ark.

Associates and friends of all three arrested men are mom- bers of the new congress. There was speculation that they might quit because of the surprise arrests, In addition to the monk Tri Quang, the police arrested Truong Dinh Dzu, who ran a strong second as a peace candidate in last October's presidential election, and Au Truong Thanh, a former economy minister. Thanh also tried to run for president on a peace platform but his ticket was disqualified than five by the Constituent Assembly for "pro-Communist and pro-neutralist tendencies." Dzu got around that by keeping his peace platform quiet until after the assembly certified his candidacy. Informod American sources said further arrests of government opponents were "entirely possible." Tliey could not confirm reports that a small number of intellectuals had also been arrester!. Tri Quang commands a large following throughout South Vietnam. As recently as last September he was able to call thousands of Buddliist monks, nuns and laymen into the streets for protest marches against the government. In 1966 he led "struggle movements" against the government of Premier Nguyen Cao Ky, and virtual anarchy in Hue and Da Nang was put down only after government troops were flown In. The new anti-Communist front held Its first, meeting with newsmen today and announced it had united several different groups and personalities lo counter the Viet Cong offensive. The chairman of the standing committee, Sen. Tran Vau Don, said although the group has government's backing, it is not a government group. However, Vice President Ky's press aide helped organize the meeting, and soldiers set up the loudspeaker system for the news conference.

Most of those who spoke for tlie amendment actually opposed it, but said if the state hoped to have a convention, the House would have to approve it. Opponents said they believed the electorate would be too Involved in voting for candidates for various offices and would not be knowledgable about what the constitution contained. When a voter is confused and doesn't understand, he generally votes against, said Rep. G. W. "Buddy" Turner Jr. of Pine Bluff. Rep. Thomas Sparks of Fordyce said that it the House did not concur the convention bill would be dead and "the leglsla- ture will be the laughing stock of the state." "If you put this in the general election . ., you're not going to get the really true consideration of this thing that you get In a special election," said Rep, Chadd Durrett of El Dorado.

Does President John* son have to be in Vietnam to handle the situation in Vietnam?" Kirk said. Florida Atty. Gen, Earl Faircloth said Tuesday night the suits that school boards and (ax- payers haw Hted to try and force teachers back to work are academic.

The Board of Education met Tuesday and voted to give State School Supt. Floyd Christian emergency powers to cope with the crisis that closed schools from Pensacola to Miami and has kept about'half of the 1,3 million pupils out of class.

Kirk planner! a round of meetings with advisors, including his legal aide, Wade Hopping. Hopping said Tuesday he did not agree with Kirk's claim at a Los Angeles news conference that the walkout would be solved quickly. "I think he's being counterop- tlmlstic to Phil Constans (executive secretary of the Florida Education Association) who has been saying the walkout is a complete success when it's not," Hopping said.
