(Studio) Democrats in House For. Affairs Committee support legislation ordering end to American military involvement in S.E. Asia, withdrawal subject to release of POWs. Senate Democratic caucus endorses proposal to cut off funds for war, attacks President decision to mine North Vietnam ports.
REPORTER: Garrick Utley

(DC) [Senator Hugh SCOTT - says no one asks critics to remain silent, only that they make sense. Says it is Kennedy and Johnson war; Nixon ending it. Says President did not consult Congress as Congress would have leaked information to North Vietnam (via Stockholm Peace Mvt. to Madame Binh). [Senator Robert GRIFFIN - says those who disagree with President are free to do so, but should not make counter offers to enemy, undercutting President peace proposal.]

Utley, Garrick
