PAGE SIXTEEN (AKK.) CUUKlfcK NfcWS FRIDAY, APRIL 24, 19M Eisenhower Works Hard On Congressional Harmony By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP) — President Eisenhower's dcteratraiton to get along with Congress has been one of the most consistent features in all his news conference since he took office last January. He really works at it. And he's making his Cabinet and the other men around him work at it. too. Vice President Nixon said as much last night in a speech in New York before a branch of the American Newspaper Publishers Association. Eisenhower's policy of being nice to Congress is conscious, deliberate and careful and, as Nixon indicated, rooted in the belief that a soft word turnetli away wrath and will win congressional support. The President gave a good example of his method at yesterday's news conference. On Wednesday the House voted down his administration's request to build 35,000 low-cost dwelling units, a program c inder former President i 1: Truman. begun under fori Elsenhower said, when asked, that he didn't agree with ll\e House action. But he quickly added he was sure the House members had voted according to their consciences and besides he had not asked them to support the housing program. He noted the Senate hasn't acted yet. If the Senate reverses the house action, the House members might be more willing to do an about-face than if Eisenhower had antagonized them by blasting them yesterday. Musi Gain Support Nixon said of Eisenhower: "He consistently reminds the members of his Cabinet that it is the responsibility of the admini tration to gain congressional sup port for their policies through pe suasion rather than through threa' and strong-arm tactics. "While those instances when controversy develops between th White House and the Congress wl be magnified and will make th news, there is one prediction I ca safely make. . . . It is that President Elsenhowe will have the overwhelming sup port of Congress for the prograi he presents to it." This may be an accurate fore cast. Eisenhower so far has ha congress' blessing on most of wha :ie wanted, although nothing of ma jor importance has been acted o: so far. There has been one notable ex ception. He asked Congress to np prove a resolution condemning th Russians for enslaving people. Bu Congress wouldn't approve unles they could include criticism dealings with the Russians by hi. predecessors, Presidents Roosevel and Trurnan, which Eisenhower left out. Ditched Idea When tne Kepubllcans who control Congress saw the democrats In the Senate wouldn't go along, they ditched the whole idea. This was a defeat for Eisenhow- PRETZEL-PULLING PET—It's a battle to the finish, as Charles Seawood, Jr., of New Hyde Park, N. Y., and his pel cat, "Tawny," have a pretzel pull.

Nixon, in his first major address since assuming office, said Communist leaders must Dear the sole responsibility for "blockading the road that leads to peace." "The responsibility, if they fail to act, rests squarely upon them and no one else." he told Borne 1,800 persons at the dinner. Sterling Hoyden Is Divorced SANTA MONICA, Calif.
