on Macmillan By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGaiette Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTON The govern ment of Prime Minister Harold Macmillan has a majority of more than 100 seats in the House of Commons and party dis cipline in Great Britain is the stern rule rather than the excep tion Macmillians Tories are under no obligation to call a general election until the autumn of 1964 So the latest Labor move calling for a nation of no confidence must be viewed as essentially pro forma even if embarrassing to the man whose public nickname has suddenly switched from Mac wonder to Mac the Knife Macmillans present lack of popularity stems of course from his mass overhauling of the cabi net Macmillan has been called undoubtedly the cleverest poli tician to have emerged at West minster in a of 4century or cabinet1 revisions his answer to the increasing dis affection for the Tories the British public has registered in the past dozen parliamentary byelections Hugh Gaitskell the Labor party leader and five of his key as sociates on July 17 put down a motion of no confidence and de manded a general election The motion read This house declares that Her Majestys Government no longer enjoys the confidence of the country and accordingly calls upon the Prime Minister to advise Her Majesty to dissolve Parliament so that a general elec tion can be held This Is the most extreme ver sion of a no confidence motion that is possible in British politics It calls for early debate But in the present circumstance the storm is mostly thunder For al the real darkness of Macmillans outlook he stillhas the votes As a matter of fact the Labor motion is serving to reunite the badly split Conservative parlia mentary delegation This was as sured on July 19 when Selwyn Lloyd exChancellor of the Ex chequer the chief among the pilots Macmillan has dropped told a meeting in his Cheshire constituency that he would sup port the government and would never play any part which wi weaken our party Votes of no confidence for the most part are more tactical than strategic and more harrassing than destructive The weapon L small compensation to the op position for the power given to parliamentary governments to dis solve the lawmaking body and hold general elections at will In France the system is rigged even more in favor of the govern ment than in Great Britain A mo tion of censure in the National Assembly on July 17 won only 206 votes 35 short of the 241 ma jority required to defeat the gov ernment Only the deputies sup porting the motion cast votes The silence of the rest is interpreted as acquiescence in the govern ments policy Under the constitution of the Fifth Republic Do Gaulle as President has the final authority in any event to dismiss a parlia ment which adopts a motion of censure And he can chose the suc cessor to the premier who has been censured The parliamentary system and our own are almost exactly un like in one regard The Congress has no power to overthrow the government by censure Further although the recent legislative defeats of the Kennedy adminis tration might be viewed as in effect votes of no confidence the President himself remains quite popular Macmillans popu larity on the olher hand is per haps at an alllime low ng by Hoffa Wrong Address Dept Lawn on missing fist CHICAGO UPI Butcher Georgt Smith cuts meat all day and now and

allegedly passed along to Corallo by Bernard Stein an other New York Hoffa aide who had just conferred in Washington with Hoffa This subcommittee the report to the Senate said by force of the overwhelming evidence must conclude that Hoffa in callous dis regard of the welfare of the Teamsters membership in fact does not care whether officials of Local 239 or for that matter offi cials of any other segment of the Teamsters Union are robbing stealing dealing under the table or indulging in any other improper or criminal activities In 40 printed pages the subcom mittee spelled out findings based on hearings it conducted in Janu ary 1961 on Hoffa Corallo and other Teamsters figures It charged that the 1961 hearings showed Corallo after ostensibly resigning as vice president and boss of Local 239 ran it from be hind the scenes through dummy officials who did no work and who turned over to Corallo their pay checks totaling a year The subcommittee said Hoffa was well aware of this and called its evidence indisputable Its probe the subcommittee said thwarted a scheme between Hoffa and Corallo to restore to the presidency of Local 239 the con victed extortionist and
