BONN, West Germany (AP) - Con-
servative opposition leaders decided
yesterday to go ahead with plans to un-
seat Chancellor Helmut Schmidt this
week, despite a setback in a state elec-
tion that was considered a measure of
their strength.
Helmet Kohl said after a meeting of
his Christian Democrat Party that he
was "optimistic" he had enough sup-
port to oust Schmidt through a vote of
confidence scheduled for Friday.
But Schmidt's former liberal allies
still were not fully committed to the ef-
fort and there were growing doubts
whether Kohl has suficient backing to
topple the leader of the Social
Democrats who have run West German
coalition governments for 13 years.
KOHL SAID he would file his no-
confidence motion, which must be
submitted by midnight tonight, only "if
I have the certain expectation that a
majority will vote for it."
Schmidt, whose coalition collapsed
Sept. 17 when the liberal Free Democ-
rats resigned from it, said yesterday
that he still wants to hold elections soon
to solve the country's political crisis.
Kohl's Christian Democrats and its
gister party, the Christian Social Union

of Bavaria, want to take over the
government before an election. They
also want to delay national voting until
next March, presumably to rally sup-
port against Schmidt's moderates.
In a parliamentary election Sunday
in the state of Hesse, Schmidt won an
unexpectedly high share of the vote and
the Free Democrats, whose help the
conservatives need to oust the chan-
cellor, suffered a major defeat and
were voted out of the state parliament.
Political analysts said the conser-
vatives and liberals had litle choice but
to push ahead despite the Hesse set-
KOHL'S PLAN to oust Schmidt this
week appeared further complicated by
a decision by the Bavarian Christian
Social Union, which has 52 deputies in
the Bonn Parliament, to make its sup-
port for the no-confidence vote con-
ditional on the amount of support
guaranteed by Free Democrat
After a five-hour meeting of Christian
Social Union deputies and party leader
Franz-Josef Strauss in Munich, the par-
ty said it would back Kohl's call for a
no-confidence vote if there was support
for the plan from at least 40 of the 53

City approves silent siren test

Protesters of the nuclear arms race
will no longer be able to hold die-ins to
the wail, of the siren atop the LSA
Building after the vote at last night's
City Council meeting.
The council unanimously approved
e expenditure of $5,000 for the pur-
chase of a system of silent test kits for
the city's civil defense sirens. The kits
according to Mayor Louis Belcher, will
enable the city to test the sirens once a
month without disturbing residents wh
live ner the loudspeakers.
THE VOTE ended more than a month

of controversy during which the bill
was introduced, passed, recnsidered,
and introduced again.
The last die-in, on April 8, saw ap-
proximatley 200 people collapse on
State St. in front of the LSA Building at
the sound of the 3 p.m. siren. Police
were called in to control the traffic and
prevent injuries.
The controversy over the silent test
kits began in late August when Coun-
cilmember Rafael Ezekial (D-2nd
Ward) moved to reconsider the
proposal which had been passed at an
earlier meeting.
EZEKIAL said he doubted whether

the kits were worth the $5,000 they
would cost the city.
He also questioned the reliability of
the lighting system that would indicate
whether a siren was functioning
Council overturned its previous
decision, but the vote prompted a flurry
of activity from the city's transpor-
tation department. Memos were writ-
ten containing estimates of the eventual
savings to the city if it used the kits.
William Folske, the city's radio
communications supervisor, claimed
the system would save over $4,000 an-
nually because maintenance teams
would no longer have to check each
siren at the site.
Maylor Louis Belcher reintroduced
the motion yesterday. Asking council
to vote for the resolution, he said, "I
really feel it will be, in the long run, in
the financial best interests of the city."
