By Howard Dobson Washington The House draft bill, already drastically revised headed into more trouble today. Opponents said they have "an outside chance" of beating it; sup- porters predicted it will be passed before the day is over, but the day may be a long one. In two tentative decisions yester- day the House voted to cut the term of draft service from two years to one and to jur.k plans for a spe- cial registration and draft of medi- cal men. Both actions may be sub- ject to later rollcall votes. The tallest remaining hurdle ap- peared to be a proposal by Repre- sentative Shafer (R.-Mlch.) to'pass; the bill but put off any actual drafting at least until after Janu- ary 31, pending a stepped up re- cruiting drive. Supported by Chairman This plan has the support of rules chairman Leo E. Allen (R.-I1O and Representative Harness both of -whom oppose the draft and tatSs quo waltinTior the next have been critical of Army recruit- ing activities. Shafer spent yesterday button- holing -House- membersrand-told're- porters Ills plan "has a very good chance" of being adopted. It prob- ably will come to a vote late In the day. Foes ol the two-year draft revival measure were jubilant after the House voted 156 to 88 to cut the per- iod of service from 24 months to 12. When the House bill is passed, it will go to a conference committee to work out differences between it and the bill passed by the Senate last week. The Senate bill calls for the munlcatlons law Mexican com- toward making Veterans lit To Enter State Political Races Brainerd. veterans should become political candidates themselves to gain legis- lation they feel Congress is by- passing.
