Dixon Evening Telegraph (Newspaper) - March 13, 1953, Dixon, Illinois Congress Friendly to Ike's Reorganization By JAM Kg MAR LOW WASHINGTON friendly icccption which Congress gave Eisenhower's latest pro- make a federal depart- ment of the Federal Security Ag- be an answer to those who have wondered when he would start getting tough with the law- makers. Judging fiom the reaction in Congress when Eisenhower's pro- posal reached there yesterday, the approval should be given fast. The change doesn't mean much now, as Eisenhower himself point- ed out, but should save money lat- er through more efficiency. The FSA would become the Depart- ment of Health. A few top officials would have their salaries raised. Cover Some Fields -The department would cover the same vital fields now handled by the FSA: social security, old age assistance, education, medicine. Theie have been some bobbles in the Eisenhower administration's relations with Congress. His own Republicans were all set to cut down his power to re-organize the to make FSA a department is an example of such reorganization. Oddly, the Democrats in general voted on his side. But the Republicans switched and gave him the reorganization powers he called fer. He wanted Congress to pass a resolution condemning Russian en- slavement of peoples and very carefully chose the words he hoped Congress would approve. The Democrats generally went along with him, but Republicans first made changes, then sidetracked the resolution in the face of Dem- ocratic opposition to changes. Budget Differences He wanted progress toward a i balanced budget before Congress cut taxes. But some of his Re- i publicans went ahead with plans for cutting taxes. Each of these episodes was in its way a frustrating experience for Eisenhower. He could have become belligerent and tfied to throw his weight around. Instead, he said not one word of criticism publicly. So far he has kept his reasons for his mildness to himself. It may be that he is taking a much longer view of his problems than some of those who miglit think he should have started being more i emphatic in dealing with Congress. I By long view is meant here just this: That he regards any setbacks he's suffered so far as of only minor far. There still won't be any tax cut until a majority of Congress approves. He did in the end get the reorganiza- tion powers he wanted. Questionable Value As for the enslavement resolu- tion, it's questionable that it would have had as much effect any- where, even on the enslaved peo- ples. He may feel it's poor strategy to antagonize anyone in Congress on minor issues when he may need all the help he can get on major ones.

Job of Moving German Bases Near Completion WIESBADEN, Germany two-year job of moving America's air might in Germany to better protected bases west of the Rhine River will be completed in the near future, the U. S. 12th Air Force announced today. Until two months ago, two U. S. jet fighter wings were stationed near Munich, in able to both air and ground at- tacks from Communist ruled Czechoslovakia. Now they will use part of the Air Force's new com- plex of jet bases nearing comple- tion in the French occupation zone west of the Rhine. The thinking behind the move was underlined unexpectedly on Tuesday when Czech fighter planes attacked two U. S. Thunderjets near the border of the U. S. zone of Germany, shooting down one of them, and when Soviet jets shot down a British Lincoln bomber on a training mission Thursday, kill- ing five of the seven crew mem- bers.
