a compro mise foreign aid mon ey bill giving the President au thority to guarantee credit for private commodity sales to Communist nations The action paving the way for the adjournment of Con gress came after Republican protests against President John sons insistence on interrupting the Senates brief Christmas hol iday to win final passage They argued the measure could have gone over to the new session opening Jan 7 Final passage came with the voice vote adoption of a com promise ly cleared by the House at its unprecedented early morning session Dec 24 allowing John son to grant credits for com modity sales to the Soviet bloc if he determines it is in the national interest and advises Congress within 30 days The Senate earlier had ap proved the Conference report which embraced the money items in the bill by a vote of 4614 All that remained after that was the formal acceptance of a minor amendment aimed at limiting the employment of thirdcountry nationals on US sponsored foreign aid projects abroads and the amendment dealing with credit sales to the Soviet bloc Both were accepted by voice votes The only roll call came on approval of the money items in the bill Voting to approve the money items were 40 Democrats and 16 Republicans Seven Demo crats and seven Republicans opposed Early birds see colorful lunar eclipse Only the early bird got to see the total eclipse of the moon
