WASHINGTON (AP) - The House
rejected yesterday a Senate-proposed
compromise on guidelines governing

In an unusual move, the senators
used two separate roll call votes to
come up with a proposal they thought
the House would accept. The second
time, only one word was changed.
THE HOUSE rejected it, 193 to 172.
Earlier, House Speaker Thomas
O'Neill told reporters that should the
Senate proposal be rejected, the
leadership would offer a continuing
resolution which would insure funding
temporarily for the agencies.
Funding for the agencies covered by
the bill first ran out on Sept. 30, when
fiscal 1977 ended. Congress passed a
continuing resolution on Oct. 13, sup-
plying operating money until Oct. 31.

be endangered by a full-term pregnan-

THIS PROPOSAL would also permit
abortion payments for drugs or devices
used to prevent pregnancy and for
procedures used in ending an ectopic
pregnancy, one in which the fetus
grows outside the uterus.
It was adopted 59-29.
