(Studio) House scheduled to vote on bill providing $327 million in Vietnam aid, but President requests delay in final congress action.
REPORTER: Dan Rather

(Capitol Hill) Congress comment on withdrawal day generally muted, but there was some criticism of South Vietnam ambassador Graham Martin for last minute pull-out. [Senator Dick CLARK - thinks evacuation could have occurred sooner.] [Senator John TOWER - doesn't think Congress should place entire blame for situation on administration] [Senator Alan CRANSTON - says California residents concerned about Vietnam refugees settling there.] [Senator Barry GOLDWATER - says there's sense of relief and shame today; United States could have won war.] Goldwater's view not prevalent on Capitol Hill.
