Senate OKs dilution
of antiwar amendment

WASHINGTON (M - Sen-
ate doves lost a key vote
yesterday on their end-the-
war amendment, and chief
supporters said they would
now vote against their own
measure.
"I accept the verdict of the
Senate," said Sen. J.W. Ful-
bright (D-Ark.), adding he was
willing to drop the whole issue
and move on to other bills.
Senators voted 47 to 43 to
require an internationally sup-
ervised cease - fire as a pre-
condition to cutting off appro-
priations for U.S. combat in-
volvement in Indochina.
The original end-the-war
amendment, as proposed by
Sens. Clifford Case (R-N.J.)
and Frank Church (D-Idaho)
would -have cut off funds four
months after agreement was
reached far release af U.S. pri-
soners of war.
Addition of the cease - fire
wording, said Church, "so emas-
culates Case - Church as to
rend it practically meaningless.'
He too would vote against his
measure, he said.
Senate Democratic Leader
Mike Mansfield of Montana in-
troduced another end-the-war
amendment but was persuaded
to withdraw his proposal.
Eight persons stood in the
Senate galleries yesterday and
shouted "End the war -Stop
the killing" minutes after the
Senate voted to dilute the end-
the-war amendment. All were
evicted by police and security
guards.
Capitol police arrested about
150 members of Concerned
Clergy Against the War as they
refused to leave the Capitol
Rotunda.
Among those arrested were
Dr. Benjamin Spock and Yale
Chaplain William Sloan Coffin.
Representing various churches
around the country, the group
said it was protesting, in part,
Senate passage of a measure
softening the end - the - war
amendment.

SESSION STALLED:
U.S. rejects Communist
demand to resume talhs
By The Associated Press
Communist efforts to resume the formal Paris Vietnam
peace talks were rejected yesterday by the U.S. and Saigon
side.
The North Vietnamese and Viet Cong delegations sent
notes to the U.S. and Saigon liaison officers early in the
day calling for the talks to resume tomorrow.
The condition set by the U.S. for resumption when it
suspended the conference May 4 was proof from the Com-
munists that they were willing to get down to negotia-
tion instead of the exchanges of prepared statements
which have been the fea-
ture of the more than three
years of meeting. TV & Stereo Rentals
U.S. delegation spokesman
Stephen Ledogar said the Com- $10.00 per month
