Jan. 7 tJP^on-gressional reaction to President Ei.senhower’.s State of the Union message today ranged all the way from “inspired” and “dynamic” to "hodgepodge” and “platitudes.” Many members reserved judgment until moi^e details are supplied. Several Democratic .senators, particularly from the South, joined In Republican accolades and promised to cooperate in achieving the administration’s over-all goals. There was some Republican criticism. especially on specific issues such as the President’s request that present corporate and excise tax rates be continued and that postal rates be raised. Praise from Knowland Sen. Knowland of California, the Senate Republican leader, said Eisenhower had given a “forthright message on the state of the union and called upon all good citizens, regardless of part>' affiliations, to join in the building of a stronger ; .America and in heloing to maintain a free world of free men.” \ Calls for Democratic support also : WASHINGTON, Jan. 7 i' Secre- ; ^^ere sounded by several other Re- ! tary of State Dulles ^Id the .Senate p^bijpan leaders including Chair ROBERT MONTGOMERY'S IDEA Custom-Built Lectern Helps President Avoid Tongue Twists Reds' Troubles Worse, Dulles Tells Senators By ARTHNR EDSON W.ASHINGTON, Jan. 7    —    If President Eisenhower seemed to stumble over fewer words today than most speakers do in the course of a 54-minute talk, there may be a reason. For the first time in the history’ of speeches on the State of thp Union, a President had hi.s own individual lectern, of just the right height and right tilt.

Eisenhower adjusted it until it was exactly the height and angle he liked. Montgomery then had a gadget built to set on the regular hou.se lectern that would duplicate the height and tilt of the music rack. “Got the idea while going around the country giving talks.” Mont-gomer>’ said proudly. “I’m 6 feet 1. and I’m forever running Into lecterns down around your knees.
