Some officials and various newspapers said it spelled stability in policy at a time when the west is to con- sider talks at the summit with the communist east. West Germany's Chancellor Konrad Adenauer was report- ed pleased with the outcome, which gave Prime Minister Harold MacMillan the "over- whelming authority" he had asked to speak for Britain at the summit. Privately the Adenauer gov- ernment is known to be satis- fied with defeat of the labor- ites, who advocate neutraliza- tion of central Europe, includ- ing Germany. Berliners Happy Adenauer's press chief, Fe'lix von Eckardt, told a news conference in Bonn that, speaking for himself, "the conservative victory means a great advantage in conducting international conferences." In divided and communist- surrounded Berlin, the West Berliners appeared relieved. The right wing newspaper B-Z commented: "Let's say it right out. The labor people were to be ex- pected to try to make a deal with Moscow at our expense." In Paris, officials close to French Premier Michel Debre expressed great satisfaction. Maurice Schumann, head of the French national assem- bly's foreign affairs commit- tee, said 'in all the great democracies of western Eu- rope, continuity and stability are henceforth assured."

A land- slide vote oi: confidence gave the conservatives a third term and sent Lon- don stock prices soaring. Nearly complete returns this afternoon showed the con- servatives had taken 23 seats from the labor party in the 630-seat house of commons. The Macmillan party, the nearest approach in Britain to a free enterprise party, rode a wave of prosperity to vic- tory. Dealers were besieged at the opening of the stock exchange by brokers wanting to buy shares in British com- panies. Shares of steel con- cerns, safe for the time being at least from labor threats at nationalization, led the pa- rade. A short time later the tab- ulation of votes put the con- servatives' majority in the house of commons past the 100 mark. Margin Grows Macmillan's majority in the last house was 53 seats. This count from 616 of 630 districts gave the conserva- tives 359 seats, the laborites 252 and the liberals 5. Returns from 87 per cent of the districts gave the tories 49.7 per cent of the popular vote, about the same as in the 1955 election. Labor's popular vote was down to 43.8 per cent from 46.3 in 1955. The liberals' share of the vote in 1955, 2.7 per cent, was about doubled this time. The popular vote in itself, as in the United States, does not the election. The result is on the basis of how many of the nation's 630 districts a party can carry. The party winning the most seats forms the government.
