Scoring 100% were three Republicans: Carl Curtis, Jesse Helms, William Scott. The amendment by Representative Gene Snyder to a foreign aid appropriations bill to ban the use of government funds for the negotiation of a new Panama Canal treaty was retained by the House in a close vote last week. According to political analyst Richard Scammon, Senator Nelson Rockefeller will be retained on the Republican ticket next year in the general elections. Vice president nelson A.
