Thursday, September 27, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Troop vote overturned WASHINGTON (AP) Overturning a vote taken earlier in the day, the Senate rejected Wednesday an amendment that would have forced a 40-per-cent cut in United States land-based troops stationed abroad Senators voted 49 to 46 in the morning for the withdrawal but a second vote was necessary to tie the amend- ment by Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana to a military procurement authorization bill. The second vote was 51 to 44 against the amendment. The amendment directs that of the troops stationed abroad be withdrawn by July 1, 1976, with at least being pull- ed back by next July 1 It would apply to U.S. troops in all foreign countries. The sea-based troops would be exempt from the cut. U.S forces are stationed on every continent, including An- tarctica. Mansfield had asked for a 50-per-cent withdrawal, but amended it at the last minute to 40 per cent. A second vote on the amendment is to come on tying the cut to a military procurement author- ization bill. Before the order can become effective, it will have to win approval of a Senate- House of Representatives conference and later of both houses, and be signed by President Nixon, who has veto powers. 50 Ways to Cut Food Costs Why is liver a good buy?
