LONDON - Britain smnr
ity Labor government survived
a no-confidence vote last night
in the House of Commons after
forging a pact of political co-
operation with the small Liber-

The vote was 322 forthe gov-

The Liberals, with 13 seats in
the 635-member Commons, held
the balance of power and Prime]
Minister James Callaghan need-
ed their votes to stay in power
and forestall a general election.
Liberal leader David Steel
called the deal "a rather excit-
ing political experiment." It
was denounced by the opposi-
tion Conservatives' floor leader,
Francis Pym, as "some kind of
political shotgun wedding - a
one-night stand if ever there1
was one."
ANOTHER Conservative MP,I
Ronald Bell, called it the "most

athletic abilities.
"Everyone thinks they're good
in high school," he explains,
"but until you compete with the
best all over the country, you
(can't) really find out how to
rate yourself.]
"MAYBE I'M not good
enough," Brown suggests. But1
he quickly adds, "If I didn't'1
think I was good enough, I
would say that. That isn't my
attitude. I'll always think I was
good enough to the day I gradu-
ate from here even if I never
play a minute."1
But Brown says he'd rather
'demonstrate his abilities on the
field than talk about them: l
"I just kind of keep it to my-..
self," he says, his voice trailing
off. "It's something that I have
to keep in. But I always know
I'm good enough. I really do."

sities, could probably have

schools' football squads. How-I
ever, he opted for Michigan be-
cause football was just as im-
portant to him as academics.
"I just thought I'd never be
satisfied (elsewhere)," he says.
"It's just the competitive nature
that's born in you, or it's not
born in you. If you don't want
to go with the best, then I just
don't think it's worth settling
for second."
Despite his non-starter status
Brown insists that he always;
puts out a 100 per cent effort in
practice sessions. But he's found
it difficult to watch classmates
with whom he played as a fresh-
man on the varsity reserve
squad pass him by.
"YOU JUST figure that (in)
time you'll be up there playing,
but it doesn't always work out
that way," he says. "L've com-

The vote followed angry
scenes in the House of Com-

the Liberals' decision, scuffled

them from taking their seats.

due to the high price of oil. A
substantial share of these debts
are owed to U. S. banks.
U. S. banking leaders such as
David Rockefeller of New.
York's Chase Manhattan Bank
have been saying that banks
cannot maintain the brisk pace,
of lending to underdeveloped na-'
tions of the past few years.
Outstanding loans to poor na-
tions by U. S. and other banks
have climbed from $39 billion toi
$77 billion in little more than
three vears, Rockefeller said.
While there have not been
any major defaults on these
loans, there is concern by some
economists that if one nationi
defaults, it could start a chaini
reaction that could imperil the

Nixon talks
Nixon sat down yesterday with
British talk show host David
Frost to start the first of 12
taped interviews about his life,
his career of almost 30 years
and the Watergate scandal that
drove him from office.
Frost calls the interviews -
Nixon's first since resigning -
the most challenging of his ca-
reer, "particularly since Rich-
ard Nixon is renowned to be an
incredibly private person, and
we want to see the real Richard
Nixon, find out the answer to
that enigma."
The two-hour interview ses-
sions, the last set for April 20,
will be edited down to four 90-
minute programs to be aired in
May on television and radio in
the U. S. and at least 10 for-

This Year You Can Have a

(Roman Polanski, 1966) 7:00 ONLY-AUD A
A tale of a middle-aged, whimpering asexual whose gorgeous wife
loves him enough to dress him in her nighties. Interrupting this
strange form of bliss is a gangster needing a hideout. Mean and
sadistic or slapstick comedy, depending on how you look at it.
The jury at the Berlin Film Festival liked it well enough to award
it their Best Film Award and Polanski' still thinks it's his best
film. Donald Pleasence, Francoise Dorleac, Jack MacGowron, Jaque-
line Bisset.
Fearless Vampire Killers
(Roman Polanski, 1967) 9:00 ONLY-AUD A
To call the FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS a parody of horror
films or even a loving homage is to underrate it to an absurd
degree. A far more funny and sophisticated film than YOUNG
sheer Gothic horror, and it's obvious if Polanski had taken out
his tongue from his cheek completely, this would have been one
of the scariest films ever made. Polanski not only shades the film
with his usual dark themes, he turns in a fine performance as
the professor's "gofer." Jack MacGowran; Sharon Tate.
