Neither Side was predicting whether the Antiwar amendment would survive although both friends and foes conceded the House could Echo the Senate and vote Down the entire Bill.

Withdrawal from All parts of Indochina except Thailand within four months if Hanoi releases american prisoners and accounts for gis missing in action. The Senate passed the Milder amendment then killed the foreign Aid Bill to which it was attached. But in a Quick turn around the Senate passed the stronger end the War provision and also the Pentagon procurement Bill carrying it. Because the House version of that Bill contained no end the War language the package was sent to a House Senate conference where it May languish without action. The House then became the forum As both sides stepped up t. Air lobbying. The counter pressure drives were being conducted by republicans under gop Leader Gerald r. Ford and by a coalition of Antiwar congressmen and peace lobbyists. The War pullout mandate originally carried a deadline of oct. I but backers announced during opening debate tuesday that they will move to change it to dec. 31 to keep the Issue out of the presidential election.
