The amendment was attached o a bill (S. 3355) that was later passed and sent to the House.

They said the pro isions help police combat drugproposed agency. In rejecting he amendment, the Senate vot- d to retain language that givem blanket exemption to labor- lanagement disputes.

Lowell Weicker (R- Conn) said, "I have a feeling hat if labor is unhappy and usiness is unhappy, the consu-: mer is being well served.'

Jacob Javits (R-N.Y.) sailed the amendment a "vei'vv clever" strategy a i m e d at ireaking the back of the hill. ' McClellan voted "yea" and' Fulbright voled "nay." · ushers. Sen. J. W.
