Bui at least one of these two prime aclministralion objectives is expected to bob lo the surface as an issue in thc Nov. ,'i elec- tion. Although Ihc decision lo quit was taken, the formality of sine die adjournment was' put off until Saturday after the House had acted on Die final ap piopriations bill of the session. The delay was decided on so one last effort could be made to reach a compromise on a bill! increasing vclorans' pensions. This has passed both chambers, in different forms but contcices were unable to agree Fridaj on' a compromise.
