HOME EDITION VOL LXIII Associated Press and United Presi Full Lease Wires Seven Cents a Copy MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY APRIL 11 1957 This Paper Consists ol Four No 157 SenatePassed Tax Plan Ruled Valid Ike Still Following Persuasion Policy With Congressmen By ROBERT J DONOVAN New York Herald Tribune News Service WASHINGTON Although vital parts of his legislative pro gram arc in trouble President Eisenhower thus far in his second term continues to follow his accustomed policy of not taking a demanding attitude toward Congress The Presidents attitude was typified by an answer at his press conference last week when a reporter reminded him that Secretary of Labor James P Mitchell had praised a Democrat Rep John E Fogarty of Rhode Island for defense of the administrations budget I wonder the reporter asked the President If there is any way that the White House can bring to bear pressure on the Republicans in Congress to do kind of work that now a Demo crat seems to be doing I will tell you Eisen hower replied I tried to get all Congressmen and particularly Republican Congressmen to un derstand why these budgetary sums have to be presented to the Congress if we are to carry out the Good Results In sum this is persuasion through presentation of facts rather than strong insistence or cracking the whip or employing the immense political prestige which the President gained in his landslide victory on election day Sometimes notably in 1954 the President has had good results with this policy but sometimes especially in 1953 the results have been poor How it will work out this year is still very doubt ful The schoolconstruction bill is a major item in his program and one about which he appears to feel strongly It is facing a hard fight in Congress and some ob servers believe that it will fall by the wayside Aid to Education At least three times last week the President spoke out publicly on the need for federal aid to education but he never referred to the situation in Congress or in sisted that Congress pass his school bill He simply restated his views with theaim of per suading others The President may have felt that on the school bill it was too soon to attempt pressure Indeed the outlook for the measure brightened somewhat on Thurs day when a House subcommittee reported out a compromise S2 billion federal program for school construction The real test on how strong a line Eisenhower is prepared to take toward the new Democratic controlled Congress may yet come on this bill when it reaches a point of crisis on its way through Congress This test might have come soon on another Con gress had not finally passed the Middle East Resolution in a form acceptable to the President Al though the President waited pati ently through weeks of debate or the resolution it seems certain that he would have put up strong fight if its passage had ever been in serious doubt Special Appeal Members of Congress say that when the White House makes special appeal for their vole on some key issue or other the re quest comes by telephone from Sherman Adams the assistant to the President rather than from Eisenhower So far as meets the eye the Presidents direct person al contacts with Congress are fairly well limited to his weekly meetings with the Republican leaders and with his periodic bi partisan legislative conference on foreign and defense policy Since Eisenhower has been President there has never been anything like the steady stream of representatives and senators calling at the White House as there was in the Truman Admin istration But then in his later years Truman had poor luck getting major legislation through Con gress despite the loudest whipcracking And there is of no certainty that Eisenhower could do better than he has by leaning toward these tactics except per haps on a few particular issues carefully chosen MORE BLASTS BIRMINGHAM Ala Ex plosions believed to have been caused by dynamite damaged two houses in a

the intention of the personnel director amendment was to re move deadwood from state de partments by letting them dismiss employes not needed He suggest ed final authority on all personnel problems be
