hower s recommendations still stacked up in front of it The first three months of the present session were devoted ly to foreign relatively tle progress has been made on Eisenhower's domestic program The President's only resounding victory on legislation to date was in winning a year's extension of corporate and excise tax rates and defeating a i cratic effort to cut income taxes i for taxpayers The President and Democratic congressional have been pretty much in step on foreign I affairs despite partisan wrangling over the administration's release of the Yalta papers Pacts Approved The Senate as urged by the President approved the Manila Pact establishing an nist alliance in Southeast Asia the Pans Pacts restoring West sovereignty and bringing her into the North Atlantic ance and a mutual defense treaty with the Chinese Nationalists Also adopted by the Senate and i House with only a few dissenting votes was a resolution authorising j the President to use American i forces as he finds necessary to I protect the Nationalist stronghold of Formosa the nearby dores and related areas Whether this progress is to be matched in the domestic field in the months ahead will depend on the extent to which compromises can be worked out on differences between the administration anl legislative leaders Differences Over Methods In many instances these ences are over methods rather than objectives Examples are the highway and school construction programs by the President He has keyed his proposals largely to huge bond issues in contrast to Democratic ideas that the govern- ment should finance them with rect federal grants I The President scored a narrow i victory in the House with passage i of a extending the trade agreements program for I three years and giving him ad- j authority to cut tariffs i But the on which i er has to rely heavily for cratic support has encountered i rough going in the Senate Finance i Committee and its fate is un- certain Faces Possible Velo j The Senate has passed in the j face of a threatened presidential j veto a measure to give postal and j other federal employes a 10 per j cent pay raise Eisenhower asked 1 for a smaller raise and a search is being made in the House for a compromise solution i No action has been taken on a i related presidential request for an increase in postal rates Other presidential tions awaiting action include an increase in the minimum wage i government support of private health insurance plans a tion in the voting age limited amendment of Labor Act and elimination of in- equities in the immigration law Congress has enacted tration legislation to provide an incentive pay raise for career members of the armed forces but still in committee is a measure asked by the President to establish a new reserve program A to extend the draft four years to July 1 1959 has been by the House but no action has been taken in the ate One thine did do promptly was to vote itself a 50 per cent
