Fulbrighb on_51 votes vpted plus 31 times, minus 18 times and was absent • twice. « ihese compilations are upon votes cast during the last"' ; session of Congress. . In the foregoing analysis, the plus votes indicate votes favorable to our attitude and the minus votes unfavorable. . • .. »-.(.- • ' •'. . ^ .
