WASHINGTON P - Senate Democratic leaders agreed
late yesterday to support a six-months' surtax extension and
moved for a floor vote on it today.;
Majority Leader Mike Mansfield (D-Mont.), put aside an-
tiballistic missing legislation and arranged for a debate start-
ing at 12 noon on the embattled tax measurq.
But Mansfield stressed that he believed an understand-
ing had been reached only to pass a six-months continuance
of the income surtax.
Republicans, however, said they would offer amendmentsj
in an attempt to obtain the full year's extension sought by
President Nixon and for repeal of the seven per cent invest-
ment credit, also sought by the President.
