As usual, the Nixon ad- ministration moved to block the initiative, specifically a provision that funds in the Senate be used only for the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Indochina. But, as the president, was foon to discover, he was not. dealing with the .same .situation as before. ft was amid anger and confusion over the U n i t ed Nations' China decision that, ihc administration condemned the proposed restriction on Indo- china spending. Taking the toughest possible line, tial supporters said v.ould rather have no aid bill lhaa one with restrictive provisions After the vole, the activists found thai yet another narrow defeat, had he-en added to the rebuff by the I'nited Nations. At that point., .some who liar! long .supported foreign aid. evi- dently determined thai they would have nothing lo do with an aid bill which did not con- lain the Indochina rrslrictiiais. Their del'irlion was an im- portant factor in the dramatic defeat of the hill. And they now find themselves with radically transformed p r o s p oc t s for pressing their case, ui I n d o- china. Overnight, a ha.s appeared i thi! comprehens icy sl.ruclure. uhich the presi- dent lias painslakiiigly devel- oped. As Mr. Nixon's cabinet associates are now feverishly 1 h e central premise of the Nixcn policy is Hint withdrawals of I'.S. forces from overseas military dul ics will be paralleled by increased aid lo help allies build up their own forces. In this context, do not simply add up to a demonsl.ralion of weak- ness a weakness which would, it is suggested, under- mine the U.S. capacity to ne- gotiate with the North Viet- namese in Paris, and with the Russians in relation to the Mid- dle -East and the limitation of strategic weapons. The administration thus must scramble to do what it can about the crack. Ideally, con- gress would authorize the con- iinuaUon of expenditures at last year's rate for a period of three months. This would allow time for the administration to mount a .strong campaign, pos- sibly in .support, of a remodelled bill. But quick interim tion would require the co-op- eration of key committee chair- men, a m o n g them J William I'Y.lbright, the president's chief congressional antagonist.
