(Studio) Nixon Admin. acts as though Senator anti-ballistic missile battle won.
REPORTER: Harry Reasoner

(DC) President Nixon authorizes Senator Everett Dirksen to quash all talk of compromise. [DIRKSEN - says Nixon says no compromise.] Low Senator attendance. Opponent Senator Philip Hart says thought we had it, but don't know where we stand now. Nose count 50-50, but not sure who is committed. [Senator William FULBRIGHT - says more important to establish feeling in Senator that it's possible to challenge military]
