The vote was not on a motion of confidence and Wilson is not bound to resign. Under the Brit- ish system the prime minister is free to call elections at any time, but if he loses on a motion of confidence he is expected to call a ballot promptly. Several members of Wilson's cabinet reportedly are urging him to call general elections this summer to seek a clear ma- jorily for Labor.

Addressing the Third distric Democratic central committee Rapp said the present infla tionary level makes it "abso lulcly imperative" that congress not only balance the budget bu also provide for a budgetary surplus. He said billion could be cut from the defense budget by trimming troop levels in Europe, slowing development of somej weapons and tightening pro-j curemenl practices; billion] on foreign aid and billion oni the space and public works pro-j ;rcaty and the opposition Chris-, tian Democrats voted against.

It declares the Munich agree- ment "null and void" with resp- ect the Czech-West German re- lations.
