MONDAY, DECEMBER u, 1953 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWT PAGE STYB Success of Eisenhower Administration Depends on '54 Leadership in Congress By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP) — This next year may be the most critical one of President Eisenhower's tenure in the While House. He has just bid for constructive world leadership with his proposal for international pooling of atomic materials. It was his response to (he challenge of finding a new door to peace. The next test challenges him to assert strong leadership with Congress nnd so shepherd through the kind of program he thinks the country needs at home nnd abroad. The success of his administration and even history's judRtnent of his presidency may depend on the kind of program he offers Congress next year and what happens to it. He will go over his 1954 program this week with the Republican lenders of Congress. It covers a big field, including social security, taxes, changes in the Taft-Hartley Act, foreign aid. foreign trade, and whether tariffs should be raised or lowered.. For most of the. 1953 congressional session Eisenhower's leadership with Congress was exercised more by proxy than directly. The proxy was the late Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio. Political Novice Perhaps because Eisenhower, as he himself said, was a political novice or because he has a natural aversion to brawls or because he didn't want to get rough unless he had to, he maintained the ap- r pearance of avoiding pressure. He repeatedly spoke of the right ^ of the White House and Congress to a difference of views, but he soon found out that while he was being mild some of his pet plans could be strangled by Congress. His first full realization of that possibility was provided by Sen. McCarthy of Wisconsin and other members of his own party when they stood in the way of his appointment of Charles E. Bohlen as ' HAVING A HIGH OLD TIME—Nope, it's not Coney Island. It's a full-scale rooftop playground atop the Emporium, one of San Francisco's oldest department stores.

With Taft doing the in-fighting, Eisenhower' could afford to be mild. But when Taft had to withdraw 'rom Congress in the closing days of this year's session because of his fatal illness, Eisenhower found out in at least one crucial situation that he himself had to get in and punch. Strong Support This was when Rep Daniel A. Reed (R-NY), chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, tried to block Eisenhower's desire to keep the excess profits tax, due to end June 30, until Dec. (31. Reed had plenty ol Kepublicsn support. Eisenhower's administration needed the money from the tax. The White House used pressure to defeat Reed. Taft before'his death picked Sen. Knowland of California to be his successor as Senate Republican leader. But Knowland 1$ not Taft. He's a hard worker. But he's younger and less experienced nnd doesn't carry Taft's weight in the Senate or among Republicans around the country. In addition to dealing more directly with Republican senators, Eisenhower has another problem: (THE Democratic senators. They may be a lot rougher on him in 1954, which is an election year, than they were in 1953, which wasn't, particularly il tile Republicans rake over the past with investigations intended to make Communists-in-government uner the issue in the 1954 election.
