But Eisenhower had made such an issue of wanting 1 the profits lax continued, it became a stern test of his leadership. He could then hardly sit idly by while Congress—or, rather, a small group of congressmen—ignored his plea and permitted the tax to die. Or so he may have reasoned. At any rate, apparently seeing himself facing sure defeat unless he did more than just ask for ex• tension of the tax, Eisenhower vised the full force of his party's leaders in the House to smash into congressional tradition, pride and prerogatives. Aside from any question of whether he was right or wrong, it was a steam-roller attempt to get what he wanted, and the roller crushed some toes. Daniel A. Reed at 78 is the oldest Republican In continuous service in the House, This New Yorker, chairman of the House Ways i\nd j Means Committee which considers tax problems, wanted the excess profits levy to die tomorrow night, as scheduled.

If Eisenhower acted because h thought Reed was too high-hamied with him, there are members of Congress who think Eisenhower was not only too high-handed with Reed and his committee but with the traditions and procedures of Congress itself.
