While Pentagon officials were slung by the Senate's rejection of 5266 million in additional military aid for South Vietnam, they are even mere f e a r f u l the Congress will make dcper cuts in t h e same aid request for t h e coming fiscal year. In a surprising, successful fight led by Sen. E d w a r d M. Kennedy. D-Mass.. the Senate voted 43 to 38 Monday to limit U.S. aid to Vietnam to a previously established $1.126 billion ceiling. The vote caused Secretary of Defense James R. Schlesingor to order a series of emergency meetings to decide how to re- acl. M A V BE DELAYED Pentagon sources indicated American shipments to Saigon probably would be held up through the end of the fiscal year to remain in compliance with the Senate cutoff. · At the White House. Deputy Press Secretary Gerald L. Warren said top Nixon administration officials were "deeply disappointed" in the Senate vote. He predicted the congressional cutoff would result in a mili- t a r y imbalance in Vietnam as a result of continued heavy infiltration of troops and equipment by the North Vietnamese into South Vietnam. Though Warren indicated attempts may be made again to raise the aid ceiling. Pentagon sources said no attempt would be made to influence a conference committee of House and Senate members who might consider it again. Instead, said Pentagon officials, the chief worry is salvaging a $1.6 billion Vietnam aid ceiling for the new fiscal year starting July 1. The House Armed Services Committee already has lopped off ?200,000 of thai figure, indicating that any attempts for a substantial mll- tary support program for the Saigon government will have trouble in the Congress. Between now and July I, Pentagon sources said, all categories of military aid to South Vietnam, particularly artillery rounds, would come under scrutiny. Some arms or ammunition purchases might be diverted in other aid programs to countries such as Korea or Israel MORE F R U G A L USE The rejection of the $266 million, sought not as an outright increase, hut defended as a paper transfer credited to earlier years, was not expected to result in any sharp reduction of South Vietnamese military operations. It was expected (o result in a much more frugal use No One Wanted Seniority Plan Bumpers States JON'ESBORO, A r k . (AP) -Gov. Dale Bumpers said Tuesday night t h a t the nation's founding fathers never envisioned the seniority system, the people never wanted it and he would never use it to t r v to b elected to the U.S. Senate. Bumpers, who is opposing the re-election bid of Sen. J W Fulbright. D-Ark.. made the remarks at a dinner here. The governor said he knew when he decided to oppose Fulbright that the senator, who has served for 30 years, would m a k e seniority an issue. "I feel that' the people of Ark a n s a s did not intend to say -and 1 believe that my opponent did not at t h a t time' intend to say -- that nobody should ever challenge him for a seat in the U.S. Senate simply because he is building seniority," Bumpers said. One of the country's needs is for young people to enter the political arena, he said. Bumpers said t h a t end is not served by arguments t h a t a senator's seniority should be preserved. Bumpers pledged never to argue for re-election on thai basis. The governor reiterated campaign theme that public confidence in government is at an all time low. If faith in government is to be rekindled, Bumpers said, "you and I are going to have to change the faces in Washington. The problems can't be solved here in Arkansas: thev can only be solved there in Washington." Bumpers cited the energy situation as an example of Congress' lack of action in solvine problems.

Fashion Design NEW YORK (AP) - Designers are dipping by degrees into the long, loose look, depending on their amount ol nerve. Among the long-lovers, John A n t h o n y asks for a slim dress under a full coat; Giorgio di Sant'Angelo calls Jor careful detailing; Victor Joris' call for Cuddlecoat suggests a lush looseness. Joris takes the plunge and makes it work. Hisi skirts start at four inches below the knee and go down. They are saved by their fullness and interesting tweeds. He's topped them with full coats and capes. It's a lot of 2rsTryLong,Loc fabric, but It looks great. The only time Joris goes askew Is the tent top and tent together. From any angle it makes a woman look like a moving tank. One tent is plenty. John Anthony's collection is a little too close for comfort.- His coats are sensuous and soft. But the narrow A-line skirt still looks wrong long, whether it's a brown jersey dress or a black suit. His best skirts are full, bias or pleated. Some of them »re topped with his tailored blazer. That look made him successful several years ago, but It doesn't make it' with the long Betook lengths. His colors are dark solids, black and brown, except for a light, rose-brown series, which drew applause. Leo Narducci eschewed the long skirt for the most part, ending day clothes just below the knee. He showed some of the best chiffons in town for the money. His line for Ambiance is priced at $75 to H85. G i o r g i o d i Sant'Argclo's styles have a mood and a drama all their own. Some dresses had the forbidding mystery of high necks and dark lace detailing. Others were inviting siren numbers, body-squeezing, Grapefruit Demand WASHINGTON ( A P } - 1 n- creased demand for smaller seedless pink grapclruit has prompted the Agriculture Department to reduce, effective this week, the si/.c requirements for that f r u i t grown in Florida or imported. The minimum diameter now is three and 5-lGths inches, down from three and 9-lSths. No change was made in the minimum quality grades or in the minimum size requirements for white seedless or s e e d e d grapefruit, a spokesman said. speckled with rhinestones. Models wore loose boots, sometimes under long skirts, or pants tucked in, for a fat-an- kled feeling. Captive Released BEIRUT.
