The 27-0 vote raised the possibility
that a bitter struggle between Carter
and Congress over U.S. foreign policy
could be averted. Carter has made
clear he would likely veto any

the House panel, Douglas Bennet,
assistant secretary of state for
congressional relations, said, "The
administration feels the committee has
accomplished an extremely important
constructive effort.
"This is one of the finest performan-
ces I've sen by any committee since
I've had this job," Bennet said. "These
people are a bunch of statesmen."
