Mexican developments. Representa
tives generally, including some admin
istration sponsors, would not be sur
prised If the week would be marked
by some decisive move by the admin
istration. Congress Is prepared for any war
emergency. Lying on Speaker Clark's
desk is a resolution from the military

which wouid make immediately avail
able the two hundred million dollars
