The plan was offered by Rep. Sparkman (D.-Ala.) in an effort :o break the deadlock over the louse's repeated refusal to vote for a teen-age draft and the sen- ate's insistence that the teen- agers be inducted to relief men with long service records. Sparkman's plan would pro- hibit the armed forces from send- ing 18-year-olds overseas unless they volunteered but would al- low them to be drafted for serv- ice in the United States. It would not affect the status of 19-year- olds, who now may be sent over- seas if they were inducted prior to last May 15. Prior to last May 15, the serv- ices were permitted to draft teen-agers for service anywhere, but congress, in passing a resolu- tion extending the draft law until June 30, prohibited induction of any teen-agers, regardless of where they were to be used Sparkman, one of the seven house members of the conference committee, told reporters he be- lieved the house would accept the compromise, and there were in- dications that the senate also might take it as a last resort. The conferees hope to reach a final agreement this week and force. Kepner said he was "very gratified" but improvements must be made in the radio communica- tions system before A-day, early in July.
