(Studio) Democrat major gears for clash with Nixon over Vietnam.
REPORTER: Howard K. Smith

(Capitol Hill) House Democrats vote 154 to 75 for resolution calling for cutting off of funds for Vietnam war immediately. Senate Foreign Relations Committee in closed session gives Nixon ultimatum to stop war by inauguration or face Congress action to cut off military funds. [Senator William FULBRIGHT - says Senator doesn't want to interfere with peace talks scheduled for January 8, but if settlement not reached by inauguration time, Congress will act to end war.] Senate leader Mike Mansfield talks with Nixon in White House Mansfield preparing end the war resolution. George McGovern calls for Nixon to appear before closed meeting of Senator to explain bombing North Vietnam. Unlikely Nixon will do this.
