Eisenhower worked a fairly short day yesterday, his first in Washington after 12 days of sun and exercise at Key West, Fla., recuperating from his Sept. 24 heart attack. He checked into his office at 8 a.m. and out at 4 p.m., but broke the day with a luncheon and rest period lasting 2 hours and 20 minutes as his doctors have recommended. .
