Approval came with some Kepublicans voting no because the Democratic majority tacked onto the bill a provision expected to give their party's presidential candidate a tax fund of $20.4 million in his race against President Nixon next year. THE SENATE MEASURE differs from an earlier House- ; passed bill and will require a conference of the two houses. The House bill provided tax cuts totaling $15.4 billion over 1971, 1972 and future years. " The campaign funds would come through a provision tacked on to the bill by a' 52-47 vote which permits every taxpayer to earmark $1 of his taxes to the election campaign of the presidential nominee of the party of his choice. Republicans said Nixon would spurn the public money and finance his campaign from private contributions. State Agencies equests $1.8 From Tribune Wires TALLAHASSEE - Gov.

Robert Shevin, one of them, said Askew was concerned attention focused on the secret sessions might serve "as an irritant" to participants.

India denied that it has invaded the country. The Radio Pakistan broadcast from Karachi in West Pakistan said Indian ' planes, tanks .and infantry attacked across both the eastern and western borders of East Pakistan. The main thrust, it said, was into Jessore on the western border with two other fronts opened in the Chitta-gong and Sylhet sectors on the eastern border of the province already embroiled in a civil war.

Connally delivered his stinging attack on the 77-year-old union leader at a nationally televised and broadcast news conference at which he also expressed dismay that the Pay Board had approved a soft coal contract 'agreement more than three times higher than its own guidelines. It was the sharpest administration attack yet on Meany who has been the most vocal labor opponent of President Nixon's wage-price freeze and the subsequent Phase II of long term economic controls.

Charles Bennett, D-Jacksonville, who also has resigned its chairmanship. Other members were Rep. Claude Pepper, D-Miami, and Rep. J. Herbert Burke, R-Hollywood. There are a number of reasons why Florida's congressmen are maintaining an exceptionally low profile on the shape of things to come in the districts back home. The state is gaining three seats, under the 1970 census, for a total House complement of 15. This offers more latitude, some lawmakers here feel, in "devising districts so as not to pit any incumbents against each other for reelection, contrasting with bitter instances of this in the past. Florida's congressional districts will have to average about 445,000 persons each. BENNETT SAID there would be only isolated problems facing incumbents in the realignment of their districts.
