Andrews* dramatic vote radioed from a ship far out in the Pacific appeared today to have broken the senate-house committee deadlock over the teen age draft. The New York republican’s revised proxy—declaring in favor of a conditional moratorium on the induction of 18 year olds— was sent from the USS Panammt. carrying Andrews and other observers to the Bikini atom bomb tests. Andrews thus swung over to the senate compromise offer to make 18 year olds subject to the draft only as a late resort. Hi* previous proxy called for no restrictions on inducting teen ager? with the result that the house group first rejected the compromise. 4 to 3.
