MEARS WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate ended its Christmas recess today, its leaders still looking for a way out of its SST quandry so the 91st Congress can adjourn for good, perhaps by New Year's Eve. The House, with most of its . business finished, returns Tuesday to wait for the Senate to break the deadlock over the $210 million supersonic transport plane appropriation, the major barrier to a congressional windup. It Was considered possible the Senate would act today to overcome another impasse, the $66.6 billion defense appropriation bill. That measure had been snagged because of a provision, fought by Sen. .T. W. F u 1 b r i g h t, D-Ark., authorizing President Nixon to use U. S. troops in Southeast Asia as he deems necessary to insure orderly withdrawal of American forces from South Vietnam, of to gain the release of prisoners of war. In an effort to break the ,SST deadlock,, the Senate's leaders, Mike Mansfield, D- Mont., and Hugh Scott, R-Pa., have proposed a resolution seeking a compromise that would continue SST spending until March 30, with Congress to decide on a permanent settlement next year. Their plan would pry the SST loose from the $7 billion transportation appropriations bill, which must be passed before adjournment to keep the money coming for the agencies it covers. But SST promoters, chief among them Democratic Sens. Henry M. Jackson and Warren G. Magnuson of Washington, don't want the subsidy handled as a separate issue. For without the big transportation money bill as hostage, the odds are the Senate would vote, as it did before, to halt SST funding altogether. So far, opponents of the SST, lead by Sen. William Proxmire, D-Wis., have been waging a polite filibuster- three hours or so each day— against the compromise appropriation bill. The resolution Mansfield and Scott proposed would, in effect, reverse the situation: advocates of the SST spending would have to do the Igeislative blocking to prevent their suggested settlement. If that happens, the result could be a move sanctioned by the leaders to table—and thus kill—the compromise transportation appropriations bill. That would force a new round of negotiations with the House to draw up new terms for the measure. The House previously voted the $290 million in SST funds sought by President Nixon. A con- ference committee came up with the $210 million figure. As for the defense spending bill, Fulbright and his allies considered the presidential option provision, originally a House product, the undoing of Senate restrictions against the use of U.S. ground forces hi Southeast Asia outside South Vietnam. As a result, they sought Senate rejection of that compromise bill, and a new conference with the House on final terms ofr that bill. A third appropriations bill, providing $18 billion for the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, also is snagged in the Senate. The House has approved that one. Mapusofl, senior member of the appropriations panel that handled that bill, has delayed action on that measure in an apparent move to increase its leverage in dealing on the SST controversy. A $2.53 billion appropriation for foreign aid is bound for a new round of House-Senate negotiations. The Seriate rejected that one because it includes $200 million in foreign military sales funds not cleared by Congress in authorizing legislation. The Senate is expected to pass early this week a $1.8 billion supplemental appropriations bill including $255 million worth of aid for Cambodia, and $500 million to help bolster Israel's armed forces.
