Senate cuts allfunds
for S.E. Asia bombing
Move will need House agreement
WASHINGTON (P) - The Senate yes-
terday took a definitive step towards end-
ing U. S. involvement in South East Asia
a N [ by cutting off all funds for continued
bombing in Cambodia and Laos.
The amendment to a House appropria-
tion bill was decisively approved by a 63-
19 tally. Sen.' Thomas Eagleton (D-Mo.)
:5r proposed the- measure.
Senate opposed the amendment, claim-
ing it "ties the hands" of President Nix-
on in current negotiations to solidify com-
pliance with the Jan. 27 Vietnam cease-
fire agreement.
The Senate tacked the amendment on
to a $3.6 billion supplemental appropria-
tion bill. But a Senate-House conference
committee most sit down and hammer
out a compromise between the Senate bill
and the weaker H vse version.
C Before the vote, the Pentagon said it
has already red'iced the B52 bombing
raids by one-third. One reason, a spokes-
* man said, has been the failure by Con-
gress to act on a re-uest to transfer mon-
ey from one military account to another.
A $315 million transfer is tied up in the
money bill.
THE AMENDMENT voted by the Senate
was viewed by its supporters and oppon-
ents alike 's -n vbsolite shutoff of all
present and past apoprpiations, design-
ed to force :- ed to b-vlobing raids car-
ried on for nerly three months in sup-
port of the Cmbodin government of
Lon Nol.

SEN. THOMAS EAGLETON (D-Mo.) talks with reporters after the Senate voted to cut off funds supporting U. S. bombing in ment, the Senate turned down two at-
Cambodia and Laos. Eagleton proposed adding the cut off in an amendment to a House appropriations bill. The measure passed tempts to weaken it.
