Despite a last-minute stepup in opposition by labor union officials, the House acted without even demanding a roll call. About 50 members were on the floor. Although the Ways and Means Committee reshuffled the Nixon tax program, reducing benefits to business by about $5 billion and increasing individual tax cuts by about $3.5 billion, opponents contend it is still a bonanza to big business. Using this argument the AFL-CIO sent a letter to all House members Tuesday urging them to reject the bill. A SPEEDUP Benefits for individuals are concentrated largely in the lower-income brackets. All individual.- taxpayers would get at least a little relief—possibly as speedup in bigger personal exemptions. For example, a single person with $3,000 income would save $1B on this year's tax, $55 next year, $47 in 1973. For one earning $15,000, the savings would be $8 the first year, $14 the second, none the third. A married couple with two dependents and $4,000 income would save $17 this year and $28 — the entire tax liability — next year. The similar couple with $15,000 income would save $22 this year, $44 next year. For business, the big change would be revival of the investment credit. Seven per cent of the cost of new equipment could be charged off against income tax. But the . committee offset this advantage to some extent by tightening rast-depre- ciation rules the Treasury put into effect this year. The bill would repeal the excise tax on automobiles and See Page 2A, Column 1 N D EX (6 SECTIONS, 52 PAGES) D«ar Abby 8A Bridge -... 8A Business Page IE Classified 4E-8E Comics 10D-11D Editorial Page 6A Markets -.. 2E Movies 8D Obituaries 2E Sports Pages D-Section TelevisionrUog 11D Weather Map 2A Women's Pages 8A-11A Your Good Health .1TA FORECAST BALMY No Word on Injunction; Dock Strike Weakens Senate Rejects Bid To Quit Fighting If Elections Not Held WASHINGTON (UPI) —The forces would be withdrawn J Senate voted down today a proposal to cut off money for fighting the Vietnam war by next February in absence of a from ..Indochina next spring UiS.

SO per cent In another development four opponents of Thieu filed a petition with South Vietnam's Supreme Court asking that Sunday's election be nullified because of "irregularities." Earlier there was a controversy over whether the petition could be presented because Vietnam Press, said the period for filing complaints with the court expired Tuesday. The election law. however, sets the deadline at "three days following the election day," which is today. The complaint was filed by Trinh Quoc Khanh, chairman of the Committee Against Dictatorship, labor leader Nguyen Ngoc Loi, and two Saigon city councifaien, Duong Van Long and Ha The Ruyet. LEGALITY CHALLENGED It challenged the legality of the election's organization by the Interior Ministry, the voters lack of choice and the manner in which votes .were tabulated and the final results deter- the fact that his power rests on an American military presence," Montoya said. "My j amendment would make him face the loss of our military support very rapidly unless he alters his methods of governing and a free election is guaranteed the Vietnamese people." The vote on Montoya's amendment was set as the Senate rushed a $21 billion military procurement bill to completion. A vote on the measure —$1 billion less than President Nixon sought for new and improved weapons —was expected late today. The Senate already has attached a rider proposed by Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield that would establish a national policy of withdrawal from Indochina in six months unless North Vietnam refuses to release U.S. prisoners of war. Other than the Mansfield amendment, made little the Senate change in has the procurement bill as it emerged from the Armed Services Committee two months ago.

In Washington, a four-man inquiry board was at work trying to help President Nixon decide whether to take official steps to stop the strike on the West, East and Gulf coasts. The board, appointed Monday night by the President's executive order, was formally certifying contract deadlocks that have paralyzed most of the country's deep-water ports. • Appointed under terms of the Taft-Hartley Act governing labor relations, the board was directed to report to Nixon by today.

WASHINGTON (AP)—President Nixon ordered the Justice Department Wednesday to seek injunctions for an 80- day cooling-off period to end deadlocked labor disputes on the Pacific Coast and the porf of Chicago. He also ordered federal officials to go to New York City to try to seek a settlement without resort to Taft-Hartley injunctions for East and Gulf Coast disputes. AMONG RECRUITS Vaccine for Army Colds ','Iu a statement released by his press office, Ky said: "The results "of the Oct. 3 election, with • figures indicating percentages Hearing 100 per cent, revealed a brazen rigging beyond imagination." WASHINGTON (AP) — Army recruits will be immunized this year with a newly developed vaccine to prevent the • sniffling, sneezing and hacking-that is almost as much a part of basic training as push-ups and closeorder drills. The Army surgeon general's office says that during" tests.last .winter the vaccine proved effective against widespread respiratory infections which have all the symptoms of the common cold but are almost unique to basic trainees. Developed by the .Army's Walter Reed Medical Center, the vaccine protects against two types of adenoviruses which in some years have caused up to 100,000 respiratory cases among recruits. "We can't tell yo_u why it is, but the Army has adenovirus epidemics year in and year .out and nobody else does," said Lt. Col. Phillip Winter, an epidemologist with the .surgeon general's office. Winter said this type of cold-producing virus has never been known to show up in epidemic form outside. For this reason, he said, the.new vaccine offers no hope as a panacea for 1 colds in the civilian.communities. "But it ought-.to make a real dent in upper respiratory infection among recruits." • Colds are caused by a dozen types of virus of which the adenovirus is 'Only one type. Recruits at Ft: Dix, N.J., already are receiving the new vaccine, taken orally in tablet form.- The immunization campaign will be under way at all eight basic-training centers by December. 4 Winter said respiratoiy..infection, caused by the adenovirus accounts for about half tile illnesses among recruits.- Tests with the vaccine at the eight training centers in February and March cut the rate of acute respiratory illnesses in half. The Army estimates this saved about •. $1.5 million in training time. flatten program, has ordered a six-month postponement of a 6 Iper cent government pay raise , that was to take effect Jan. 1 lunder legislation passed last year. The Post Office and Civil Service Committee, by' a 5-3 vote, reported out a resolution j disapproving Nixon's order, butl it coupled this with approval of a bill tying federal pay raises to guidelines set for the private sector of the economy.
