WASHINGTON. Jan. 8 —
Members of Congress took a second look at President Eisenhower’s legislative program today and let it be known that he will have to fight to get major parts of it through the House and Senate.
Public reaction to yesterday’s State of the Union mess,age, as measured by telegrams received at the White House, is "overwhelmingly in favor" ot the Eisenhower program. Press Secretary James C. Hagcrty reported.
He said that up to 4 p.m. today 300 telegrams had been received praising the President s message and 4 criticizing it.
Stiff Opposition Looms But storm signals were hoisted on Capitol Hill, where it was evident the President will face stiff opposition when he tries to raise the national debt limit, hold taxes generally at present levels, and put farm price supports on a more llexible basis.
Even Eisenhower's estimate of five billion dollar cut in expen-i ditures during the next fiscal year was received coolly in some congressional circles.
Chairman Taber (R-NV> of the House Appropriations Committee said he expected the administration to submit a "tight" budget, but he added:
"I never saw a budget that couldn't be cut. That applies to all of them. Republican and Democratic."
There was early support, how-
ever, for the President’s proposal to give the vote to 18 year olds, young citizens who. as Eisenhower put it, “have, in time of peril, been summoned to fight for America.”
Two resolutions have already been introduced in the House, and one in the Senate, for a constitutional amendment extending ^ the right of suffrage to citizens when they reach the age of 18.
The White House said public reaction to lowering the voting age has been particularly favorable, and that considerable support has been shown for Eisenhower's proposal to strip citizenship from con- | WASHINGTON, Jan. 8 Sec-victed Communist conspirators. . j-etary of Defense Wilson said to-The latter idea puzzled some (jgy ^lay be possible to cut a

There were signs that the Eisenhower tax program, as outlined in his State of the Union message yesterday, fell far short of what many members of Congress want in the way of tax reductions.

CHICAGA, Jan. 8 (/Pj—Stanley Colen is a salesman, no matter what happens.
He had just opened the Wentworth Department Store on the South Side today when a Negro came in, pulled a knife and demanded money.
Colen, 29, took a poke at the robber. The robber counterpunched, and hsts flew back and forth till the robber fled. Colen felt a throb of pain in his right arm but ran after him anyway.
In the middle of the street, his left shoe flew off. As he stooped to pick it up, he saw a customer enter the store. With that, he gave up the chase and returned to the store to wait on the patron.
Then he retrieved his shoe, went to a physician’s office —and had a splint put on his broken right arm.

1st Session Monday in Washington
By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER
WASHINGTON, Jan, 8 (.f'-The United States and Russia will open piTliminary atomic talks here Monday.
•At that time Secretary of State Dulles and Ambassador Georgi N. Zarubin will set down to discuss ways and means of holding discussions on President Eisenhower’s atom.s-for-peaee plan.
U.S. officials hope the talks will show the degree of seriousness with w^hich the Russians will negotiate on the Eisenhower plan and on their own demand for a ban on the use of atomic weapons.
Diplomatic authorities are concerned that these talks and subsequent more formal negotiations should be handled in such a way as to ID produce the most favorable conditions for some sort of atomic agreement with Russia and (2> win the understanding and support of America’s allies.
Some See Trouble Privately U.S. diplomats think the Soviet government may try to use the atomic issue to make trouble between the United States and Britain or France or Canada. The United States has special relations with these countries as with some others in this field. It does not want to appear to be getting chummy with Russia at their expense. On the other hand it does not want the next round of atomic talks to be held in such a manner as to foreclose whatever chance of progress there may be.
■fo date the United States has kept the British informed of its contacts with the Russians on the President’s plan. Both American ; and British diplomats said, however, there have not yet been anv The Indian view is: “If we ' gpeeitl talks ot the two Western opened fire, terrible casualUes j governments beyond those which

Thimayya under instructions from his g o V e r it m e n t , might even throw his vote to the Communist side of the Neutral Nations Repatriation Commission by deciding the prisoners should be held past the Jan. 22 date. The commission chairman thus would side with the Poles and Czechs and against the Swiss and Swedes.
If the Reds win such a ruling, plans already have been made for the anti-Red prisoners simply to break out of their 55 compounds in the neutral zone and start walking south, it can be said authoritatively.
It also can be disclosed that the I Indian troops would make no move I whatever to «top them or slow I them.
There is one unanswered question: Would Communist forces
move into the demilitarized zone and southward in an attempt to halt the piisoners?
The U.S. 8th Anuy has thought of this possibility. It has issued orders covering it. Those orders are in the hands of junior commanders. |
