FA('ES SENATE TEST:
$250million -ockheed
loan complromise win

WASHINGTON (At) - A $250
million loan guarantee for the fi-
nancially troubled Lockheed Air-
craft Corp. was approved yester-
day by the House.
The vote was 192 to 189.
The Lockheed-only loan legisla-
tion won strong bipartisan sup-
port as a compromise for a
broader proposal that would have
set up a $2 billion loan fund for
ailing corporations.

The bill now goes to the Senate
where supporters of a Lockheed
loan guarantee failed for the
third time earlier in the day to
end a filibuster against the pro-
posal. Another try may come
Monday.
Rep. Wright Patman, D-Texas,
manager of the House bill, pre-
dicted the Senate would end its
filibuster early next week and
take up the House measure.
Patman said the bill was "a
package deal" put together by
congressionaltleaders nof both
parties and the administration.
Although it authorizes only the
$250 million loan guarantee
sought by Lockheed, the bill sets
up the machinery for further
loan guarantees that is contained
in the broader $2 billion version.
No other loans could be made,
however, without further action
by Congress.
The bill also provides that the
commercial banks making the
loan will have to share profits
from the transaction with the gov-
ernment in return for guaranteed
repayment.
With Lockheed reportedly on
the verge of bankruptcy and
Congress heading out of town
next Friday for a month-long va-
cation, House leaders urged
swift approval of the bill with-
out changes and managed to de-
feat all proposed amendments ex-
cept one providing for a govern-
ment audit of Lockheed.
The outcome of the Senate clo-
ture vote apparently influenced
House Republican leaders to
abandon their previous support
of the $2-billion loan funds for
ailing corporations, which also
has administration backing.

However, senators who want
to help Lockheed get a govern-
ment loan guarantee so it can
continue development of its Tri-
star jet passenger plane, ducked
a chance Thursday to vote on the
$250-million proposal. After a
hasty head count they decided
they didn't have the votes to pass
it
