Eisenhower has told Republican congressional leaders that while some compromises may be in or- der, he is prepared to turn on the heat to get major proposals en- acted in this session. A case in point apparently in- volves his recommendations for changes in the Taft-Hartley labor law. The President sent Congress a series of proposed amendments that set up a howl from two sides, with organized labor objecting to some and management to others. Associates said Eisenhower ex- pected just such a reaction. The administration aim, as dis- closed by one of those who has discussed it at the White House, is to get Congress to pass amend- ments which will be accepted in the public mind as "liberalizing" the Taft-Hartley Act. The prospect that union leaders will criticize the net result as be- ing too little and segments of man- agement will say the changes fa- vor the unions is calculated to give the whole business a middle-of-the- road look to the average voter. To get some amendments to the act, there are clear signs that the administration is prepared to throw overboard the strike vote proposal which union leaders have attacked and which the President appears to have included in his message with reluctance. On the health program sched- uled for submission to Congress to- day, some of the President's pro- posals are expected to draw fire 'rom the American Medical Assn. and, from the other side of the :ence, groups which want the gov- ernment to install a compulsory medical insurance system. 5 Private nsuranee With Central Europe still counting the casual- ties after the tragic series of avalanches buried many localities, the -town of Jaun, Switzerland, had one thing to smile about today.

The line is connected to a supporters still forecasting pas- series of emergency phones on sage, probably this week. Opponents of the 27-foot Eisenhower's social security rec- ommendations, which were warm- ly received by Congress, were ap- parently aimed in part at meeting complaints that his party has been reactionary.
