Ferguson (RMich) called today for a speedup in action on President Elsenhower's legislative program in what he said Will be the make or-break month of April. Democrats, meanwhile, gibed at the Republican leadership for what they called failure to push through the President's proposals. Ferguson said in an interview he will ask the Senate Republican Policy Committee, which he heads, to consider next Tuesday a schcd ule aimed at bringing to the Sen ate calendar in the next five weeks all of the bills covering the Presi dent's major recommendations. .'Unless we get (i these measures out of committee by May 1 and on the calendar where they are ready, for Senate action, .1 am afraid some of them just aren't going to get passed : before" our scheduled July '31 adjournment," he said. • ' The Michigan senator said he thinks the"present uproar over the controversy between Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis) . and Army .officials is obscuring the Eisenhower, program. Eisenhower has predicted that what 'he calls his "dynamic, pro gressive" program will be the principal issue in the Nofember elections. He -said that if Congress dpesn!t enact most of the program the Republicans v/on't deserve- to retain control of the legislative branch. Thusfa r . the Senate has passed only the St. Lawrence Seaway bill and a ncxcise tax measure not wholly pleasing to administration leaders, who had to accept more reductions in such levies than they would have liked.

While Ferguon said he remains confident committees will txpe dite their work so the Senate can jet some of the major proposals )cforc it soon, Sen. Mansfield (D-Mont) said he can see few signs of progress. But of the. 196 or more proposals the President has made in one form' or 'another, the Republicans will be lucky to get a dozen through Congress," he said. Democratic. National, Chairman Stephen A.

"It is now 78 days since that socallcd'dynamic ' program was unveiled—and so far we see not .a single piece of it enacted," Mitchell said in a speech.

Nowak dropped by his office in 1935 asking his advice on "the best way to cooperate" with the Communists. He said he 'persuaded them not to join the party, but that they took his advice and joined two Communist front groups — the American League Against War and Fascism and the Ethiopian Defense Committee. Reno said Mrs. Himoff was present at the conference. Nowak, who testified later, confirmed Reno's statements and said Hutchison did not tell the truth when he denied ever meeting Reno, denied being in Reno's office, and denied taking part in Communist activities. Leonard Patterson, one-time Young Communist leader who also was active in the Ethiopia Corn* mittee, backed up the story told by Reno and Nowak. He said they came to his own office later a.nd volunteered to work for ' him, saying they were "well-schooled in Marxism."
