reached agreement: Monday on a foreign aid authoriza-
tion bill that had been deadlocked in a dispute over an
amendment to control log exports. The conference ar-

board feet a year for the next three years on export of
logs cut from public lands in the west.
Agreement was reached before the congressional re-
cess last month on a $1.97-billion spending authorization,
more than $1 billion below the amount requested by
President Johnson. The conference bill will now be re-
turned to the house and then to the senate for final pas-
The log amendment was proposed by Sen. Wayne
Morse (D-Ore.), who argued that purchases by JaP«n

More Fortas Hearings Urged
WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Robert F. Griffin (R-
Mich.) asked the senale judiciary committee Monday to
reopen its hearings on President Johnson's nomination of
Abe Fortas to be chief justice. Griffin urged a thorough
investigation to determine "the full extent of Mr. tor-
las’ involvement in the operations of the executive
branch while sitting as a justice of the supreme court.
Griffin leader of the GOP opposition to Fortas con-
firmation. fired off his request a day in advance of an-
other scheduled meeting of the judiciary committee.
Earlier, Majority Leader Mike Mansfield (D-Mont.)
said that unless the committee acts soon on the nomina-
tion, he may try to take the matter directly to the senate
floor. "I think the senate ought to have to face up to the
president's request and I think the president is entitled
to the courtsy of an up-and-down vote," Mansfield said.
