A By The Associated Press ChriiSians thronged into church- es in many lands Sunday to wor- ship in traditional Easter services commemorating the Resurrection of Christ. Brisht sun and clear skies brou'-iht-higner than average lenx-- pezawrcs :r. much of the United States, swelling church congrega- tions and adding color to the East- er parade. But in Western Europe overcast skies brought rain and shivering temperatures. Only the French Riviera was favored by hot sun. In Washington. President Eisen- hower heard the ase-old story of the power of the Resurrection at the National Presbyterian Church. Thousands stood in spring sun- shine outside the church on fash- ionable Connecticut Avenue to catch a glimpse of the President. Mrs. Eisenhower was at the presi- dential home in Gettysburg, Pa. The church minister, the Rev. Edward L. R. Elson. told the con- gregation that "Easter is more than springtime and flowers. It is a demonstration of God's pow- er." Secretary of State Dulles and Mrs. Duiies sat in the peu in front of the President. Interior Serretary McKay also was in the congrega- tion. Blesses Throng: At Vatican City.

April 10 Democratic-controlled S4th Con- gress returns to work Wednesday after a 10-day Easter recess with the great bulk of President Eisen- hower s' recommendations still stacked up in front of it. The first three months of the present session were devoted main- ly to foreign affairs: relatively tit- tle progress has been made on Eisenhower's domestic program. The President's only resounding victory on home-front legislation to date was in winning a year's extension of corporate and excise tax rates and defeating a Demo- i cratic effort to cut income taxes i for low-bracket taxpayers. The President and Democratic congressional le'aders 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 anti-Commu- nist alliance in Southeast Asia, the Pans Pacts restoring West Ger- many's sovereignty and bringing her into the North Atlantic Alli- 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 Pesca- 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 differ- ences are over methods rather than objectives. Examples are the highway and school construction programs rec- ommended 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 di-: rect federal grants. I The President scored a narrow i victory in the House with passage i of a bill extending the reciprocal! trade agreements program for I three years and giving him ad- j ditional authority to cut tariffs, i But the bill, on which Eisenhow- i er has to rely heavily for Demo- 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 recommenda- tions awaiting action include an. increase in the minimum wage, i government support of private health insurance plans, a reduc- tion in the voting age. limited' amendment of Taft-Hartley' Labor Act. and elimination of "in- equities" in the immigration law. Congress has enacted adminis- 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 traininc program. A bill to extend the draft law- four years, to July 1. 1959. has been by the House but no action has been taken in the Sen- ate. One thine Consress did do promptly was to vote itself a 50 per cent par raise. It also boosted the salaries of federal judges. 229 WASHINGTON. April 10 A total of 229 alien subversives, in-' eluding 133 Russians, are listed by, the government as living in the United States because they can't be deported. In reporting this to a House Ap- propriations subcommittee, immi- gration officials said none of the i 229 is kept under lock and but. all are supposed to report their 1 doings periodically to federal of- ficers. The Immigration Service testi- mony, given to the Congressmen Feb. 25 and made public today, did j not specify why the subversives can't be forced out after having i been ordered deported. Presuma-' My most are still here because no other country will take them, while j others are ill or have had their, I cases reopened. By JACK BELL WASHINGTON. April 10 President Eisenhoxver is reported to have directed American forces to stand clear of fighting that might break out in the Formosa area until he can assess the extent and intent of any initial Chinese Corzrr.urJsi The President is represented by persons versed in the administra- tion's Far Eastern policies as hav- ing informed the Chinese National- ists they hold the primary respon- sibility for defending not only Quemoy and Matsu but Formosa itself. Eisenhower's present position was summed up this way: The Nationalists, who have been given the latest types of American fighting equipment short of nuclear weapons, wiU be expected to bear alone the initial thrusts of any at- or develops. There is a strong feeling within the administration that Chiane Kai-shek's men can handle anything short of an all-out in- vasion. Would Be In Readiness American forces would stand in readiness outside the range of bat- tle. They would not join unless deliberately attacked. If Eisenhower decides the Na- tionalists can't repel the Reds alone, his decision on American intervention will be based on the best U.S. evaluation of Communist intentions at the time.

McKeldin will operate power equipment to launch the S29.894.081 construction job. The public is being invited to at- tend the ceremonies and witness a program arranged to stress what the tunnel will mean not only as a way of expediting traffic through the city but also as a service to local traffic. Former U. S. Sen. George L. Radcliffe- has .been designated chairman of the proceedings at the Canton terminus of the proposed runnel. Over Mile In Length The tunnel, to be 1.7 miles in length, will run from Fairfield on the south to Canton on the north. The New York firm of Merritt- Chapman Scott will have its equipment in place in time for the ceremonies. It was their bid the State picked as the lowest. The entire project is scheduled for completion and opening to the public on Dec. 1. 1957. It will in- clude 13.5 miles of approach roads to carry through traffic uninter- ruptedly across the Baltimore met- ropolitan area. The approach roads will furnish high speed access to the tunnel from Elkridge on the west and from Erdman Avenue on the east. The tunnel will be a twin tube structure with four lanes of traffic. Each tube will have a roadway 22 feet wide between curbs.
