Stennis countered by reading
two letters on the Senate floor
from David Packard, deputy
secretary of defense, and from
the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Both
letters said the pay raise would
result in cutting back military
personnel, and possibly closing
bases.
Senators, evidently fearing
the latter, responded by voting
down the proposal 42 to 31.

The Senate also defeated a

(R-Colo.) introduced the bill.
One major amendment, the
McGovern-Hatfield, has yet to

reach the floor after the Sen-
ate's Memorial Day recess.
