He described his proposal as a way out for his members, who have an unem- ployment rate estimated at 12 percent because of the housing slump.

Evans, chairman of the na- tional conference last year, said the decision represented a new spirit of cooperation between the Nixon administration and has mot been embraced or ac-j cepted." Deputy Press Secretary Gerald Warren told reporters Tuesday that the view at the White House was that the house should not "shirk its responsi- bility" and pass the buck to the senate.
