Gas Rationing Ends
LONDON (AP Britain tonight ended gasoline rationing in a
swift f ollow.-up of its decision to use the Suez Canal again.
The MacMillan government's action appeared designed to moTlify
angry Tories who have bitterly denounced as a "capitulation" Britain's
acceptance of Egypt's terms for running Suez.
Prime Minister MacMillan's Suez! policies will face the test of an
opposition socialist censure motion in ,the House of Commons in a two
day debate beginning tomorrow. I

the invitation had been received from Hussein's cousin, King Faisal of
Iraq, and King Saud of Saudi Arabia.
The refusal waj announced in Amman shortly after Jordan sources

No reason was given for Hussein's decision. The wording of" the
palace statement hinted, however, Jhat still unsettled conditions in Jor
