THE BRANDON SUN, Thursday, February 5, W Supply Debate Begins Today Grits Caught In Own Trap, Says Churchill OTTAWA (CP)-The Liberal government will have to come crawling to Parliament nest week to ask for an interim money supply for an unprecedented nth month, Gordon Churchill (PC Winnipeg South Centre) said Tuesday. Mr. Churchill flogged the government as he noted that the Liberal opposition of 1363 had brought down the Diefenbaker government in a similar situation. "Here they are, caught in their own trap," Mr. Churchill said as the Commons supply debate began. "We could treat them as they treated us, but we're much too responsible." Detailed study of more than $7,000,000,000 in spending estimates by government departments for the 1965-66 fiscal year begins today. The supply debate, as it Is known, involves estimates left from last year. Mr. Churchill said the amount is too large for approval in a couple of days and sometime next week Finance Minister Sharp "hat in hand, on bended knee" would have to ask interim supply for February, Hth month of the fiscal year. Interim supply is a grant by Parliament pending approval cf government department spending estimates. Mr. Churchill described as "a great concession" opposition agreement to telescope the nor mal six supply motions into one. The opposition also had agreed to withhold votes of non-confidence. In January, 1963, the Liberal opposition had refused the same requests from the Conservative Support of the government in the three recent non-confidence motions was based on that pledge. The situation now was quite different from the 1963 crisis that preceded the fall of the Conservative government. The government then was in difficulty within itself. Mr, Thompson said he met with George Nowlan, the Conservative finance minister on Feb. 2, 1963, in an attempt to reach agreement for the stable operation of Parliament. A four-point Social Credit program was presented. It had asked for a government statement on defence policy, immediate introduction of estimates, a-budget by March 1 and a work timetable for Parliament to get on with the job. Mr. Nowlan agreed to try to sell the program to the Conservative caucus, Mr. Thompson said. No answer came from the government the following day. At a supper:hour . caucus', Social Credit decided oh a vote against-, the government. Conservative Leader Diefenbaker bad come up with the answer in the Commons the following day, Feb. 4, but then it; was too late. Mr. Thompson said the action of that day does not justify similar action now. Parliament must be made to work effectively. NDP and Liberal spokesmen had called the Conservative request then, for interim supply in the 10th month of the fiscal year unprecedented and dangerous. Social Credit Leader Thompson said it was not his choosing that gave his party the balance of power in the Commons in recent years. In the Nov. 3 election. Social Credit had pledged itself to work for a stable , Parliament STAR FROM START Rosemary Forsyth was a beautiful but unknown model when her picture caught the eye of a Hollywood easting director. She starred in her first role in Shenandoah and again (above) as the Norman peasant girl with Charlton Heston in The War Lord. A great future has been predicted for the Montreal-born girl who has been described as combining the beauty of Grace Kelly, the warmth of Ingrid Bergman and the detachment of Greta Garbo. Leggy Blonde Instant Star By CAROL KENNEDY LONDON (CP) Rosemary Forsyth is a long-legged blonde from Montreal who achieved the dream of millions of star-struck girls. Her photograph on a magazine cover caught the eye of a Hollywood casting director and she was summoned for a series of screen tests. Shortly afterwards, Universal Pictures gave the unknown model a seven-year contract, sent her for an extensive course in dramatic training and launched her into a full-blown star in Shenandoah, playing opposite James Stewart. In her second movie, The War Lord, the blue-eyed, 22-year-old actress plays an 11th-century peasant girl who captivates veteran epic hero Charlton Heston, playing a feudal Norman ruler. Her next movie, Texas Across the River, will be a comedy western with Dean Martin and the French heart-throb Alain Delon, . which she hopes will give her scope to blossom as a Movie men are predicting a great future for Rosemary and British newspaper men descended in hordes on her London hotel suite when she flew into this city recently after a continental tour promoting The War Lord. UNAWED BY FAME Relaxing in a chintz chair after the last cameraman had taken the last cheesecake shot, Rosemary appeared totally inlawed by her meteoric streak to success. "Sometimes I think I'd really be happier staying home cooking and washing dishes," she said with a grin. "I'm very much a home person." Acting ambitions? "I'd like to be as good an actress as I can. and to have good meaty parts I can get my teeth into. But my career would definitely come second when 1 get mar- ied. "Marriage is certainly the mosf important thing to me. I've seen enough of Hollywood to know that I could not be an actress and a wife at the same time," She has no, romantic ties at the moment, and her regular dates are mostly older men, several of them- in advertising. "I don't man is s mas until he is 30. With men ol my own age I feel much older than themI seem to have lived through more, experienced more." The daughter of a Scots-Canadian father and Irish-American mother, Kosemary was born in Montreal but left at the age of three for New York. She still lives in Manhattan, in a 14th-floor East Side apartment with panoramic views of which she is intensely houseproud. "If I hadn't gone into acting I would have become an interior j decorator, she said. If things go wrong witn acting i may soil become one." The girl whom American movie writers have described as combining the regal beauty of Grace Kelly with the naturalness and warmth of Ingrid Bergman has something of the cool detachment of Greta Garbo when it conies to the tinsel whirl of Hollywood ballyhoo. The anxious yearning to be accepted end cfiibfaeeu by the movie capital that has bruised so many stars most tragically, Marilyn Monroe could not be farther from Rosemary Forsyth's determination to lead a normal life. "I think I've only been to four Hollywood parties in the past two years," she said. "It is possible to avoid being sucked into the vortex, and most of my friends there are unknown anyway, so we manage to make our own entertainment and have our own parties. "I did once date a very famous Hollywood figure, but we were followed everywhere all the time by cameramen and columnists. That sort of thing is not for me, and if people are disappointed that I don't act more like a film star, well, that's just too bad." Lounging elegantly in a black sleeveless dress with no jewelry except an ornate gold ring, no makeup and her iong blonde hair falling carelessly about her shoulders, Rosemary said she found no difficulty in being herself despite the pressures of star publicity. "I guess I'm just too lazy to try keeping up an image all the tfme." Free Telephone Calls For MPs OTTAWA f CD-Starting Tuesday, members of Parliament will be able to make uiuimited free telephone calls to their home ridings. The long - awaited decision, last of the fringe benefits planned in a 1963 pay raise for MPs, came ,in the Commons this week.

MPs who make calls to places not yet on the direct dialing system may present their bills to the government. The rri?rrib?r csiit call in from their home ridings or receive free calls from constituents. MPs are supposed to make business calls only, but government house leader George Mc-Ilraith said there will be no effective way of determining what a conversation is about. However, the number and length of calls will be closely tabulated and any abuse might result in limits by the commissioners of internal economy. Speaker Lamoureux, Mr. Mc-Ilraith and three other cabinet members are the commission- KULLBERG'S FEBRUARY FURNITURE sate YES, you can buy 3 rooms or 1 room of tasteful furniture at Special February Furniture Sale Prices.
