The amendment differs slightly
from one passed 72-0 by the Sen-
ate last February. Unless the Sen-
ate accepts the House changes a
compromise version will have to be
worked out.
When Congress completes ac-
tion, three-fourths of the states
must ratify the proposal before
it can become the 25th Amend-

The legislation has two main
purposes: to keep the office of
Vice-President filled at all times,
and to provide the means for hav-

the Vice -President.
On the first point, the amend-
ment proposes that the President
nominate a person to fill a Vice-
Presidential vacancy, subject to
the approval by majority vote of
both houses of Congress.
There were complaints from
some members that the President
should not be allowed to choose
his successor. But the chief alter-
nate proposed - that Congress
make the selection-would pro-

Written Declaration
On the second point, when the
President makes a written decla-
ration to Congress that he is un-
able to discharge his duties, the
Vice-President takes them over
until the President declares his
ability to resume them.
If the President does not make
such a declaration, the Vice-
President and a majority of the
Cabinet may declare the Presi-
dent unable to carry on, where-
upon the Vice-President imme-
