WASHINGTON (AP) - Threatened
U S. Sen ate with a filibuster, the Senate sidestepped
a politically explosive debate on
registering young men for the draft and
passed a bill yesterday authorizing
sides teps $40.1 billion for weapons and military
research.
Opponents of registration claimed p
victory in the Senate's action.
"It demonstrates that (Sen. Sam)
Nunn and proponents of the draft can-
not ram this down the throat of
Congress without a debate," said David

Landau, an attorney and leader of the
anti-registration movement. But the
issue will be back on the Senate floor
soon, after the House votes on whether
to bring back registration. The House
vote is expected next month.
OVERALL, the weapons bill calls for
spending $26.5 billion in the fiscal year
beginning Oct. 1 for aircraft, missiles,
ships, tanks, torpedoes and other
weapons, $13.5 billion for military
research and $107 million for civil
defense.

At the same time, it risks a-veto by
ordering President Carter to lift
economic sanctions against Zimbabwe
Rhodesia. Secretary of State Cyrus
Vance said a veto is "quite likely" if the
Senate provision is in the bill when it
reaches Carter's desk.
The legislation, adopted on an 89-7
vote, now goes to the House.
ZIMBABWE Rhodesia and draft
registration were the only major items
of discussion in three days of debate on
the bill.

Kennedy claims Carter probably was misquoted

Thomas Downey (D-N.Y.) and told
him, "Don't be surprised if you get
some calls."
Moore explained to Downey that the
White House had let reporters know
that the New York congressman was
one of those who had heard Carter's
remark about Kennedy.
REP. TOBY MOFFETT (D-Conn.)
said the Carter comment came during a
conversation that he and Downey were
having with the president.
Some 60 members of Congress were
at the White House Monday for a dinner
and briefing on legislation to im-
plement the Panama Canal treaties.
The guests were seated 10 to a table
and, at one point, Carter joined the
table that included Moffett, Downey,
and Brodhead.

domestic oil, said he told the president
that the administration's energy
policies were hurting him politically in
New England.
"I said I'd like nothing better than to
see you go into New England in pretty
good shape next year," said Moffett.
"He said something about, I feel
good, I'm ready for 1980,"' the
congressman recalled. Then Moffett
asked Carter how he felt about 1980 and
Kennedy.
THE PRESIDENT reportedly replied

president, I've been prepared to runa
THE PRESIDENT reportedly replied
that "ever since I started running for
president, I've been prepared to run
against Kennedy ...
"If Kennedy runs, I'll whip his ass."
Moffett said Brodhead, who was sit-
ting across the table, looked up and
said, "Excuse me, what did you say?"
"I DON'T THINK the president wan-
ts to repeat what he said," Moffett
responded.
"Yes, I do," the congressman quoted
Carter as saying. They said he then
repeated his comment, word for word.
"He looked very serious and very
determined," said Brodhead.
"Evidently he wanted that word to
get out."

BRODHEAD SAID he thought Carter-
would be the stronger candidate
nationwide in a general election, but
that Kennedy would win a Democratic
primary contest in Michigan.
As for Kennedy, in an interview

yesterday with the Associated Press, he
insisted that "I'm not a candidate and
don't expect to be."
Of course, if he were a candidate
"which I don't intend to be, I would
hope to win."

House rejects pay raise

for members
WASHINGTON (AP) - The House
yesterday reversed itself on the issue of
raising its pay, rejecting a bill con-
taining a provision that would have
given members of Congress a 5.5 per
cent cost of living increase in October.
The about-face came shortly after the
House had overwhelmingly approved
an amendment to the bill that would
have increased the salaries of members
of Congress to $60,662.
OPPONENTS OF the pay raise said
the earlier vote on pay was misleading,
however, because it came on an amen-
dment to reduce the cost of living ad-
justment to 5.5 per cent instead of the
seven per cent originally proposed.
Voting for the 5.5 per cent adjust-
ment, they said, was not necessarily a
vote for the 5.5 per cent increase, but
was a vote against the seven per cent
increase.
Rejection of the overall bill came on a
vote of 232-186 with several members
jumping on the winning side in the last
minute.
THE HOUSE had approved the
amendment containing the 5.5 per cent
increase only after first rejecting by
voice vote an attempt to freeze pay
levels for Congress and federal em-
ployees making more than $47,500 a
year.
The roll call vote on the 5.5 per cent

of Congress
hike was 396 to 15, with seven members
voting present.
The vote came after lengthy debate
on the merits of increasing
congressional salaries at a time when
President Carter is trying to hold down
wage and price increases in private in-
dustry.
The president annually recommends
a cost-of-living increase for gover-
nment workers in an effort to keep
federal salaries on a par with those of
private workers.
Last year, Congress exempted itself
and all officials making more than
$47,500 a year from the 5.5 per cent pay
increase approved by the president.
