WASHINGTON (UP) Congress returned from its : pulse-taking Easter recess ' today with battle lines hard-J ening for the coming battles I over anti-recession and de-j fense reorganization meas ures. But, except for some committee work, neither House nor Senate tackled any issues today. The weather was fine and it was the opening day of the baseball season. So both houses adjourned after perfunrtory meetings, and members took off for the ball park. The House met for 32 minutes and the Senate for 24. Former President Harry S. Truman opened the post-Easter recession debate In testimony before the House Banking Committee. He urged Congress to give low and middle income groups a five-hillion dollar tax cut, and to increase spending on defense, public works and health and welfare measures. He also urged Increased social security benefits as "one of the most desirable methods of expanding purchasing power." The Senate will turn back to anti recession legislation Tuesday when it resumes debate on a Democratic sponsored bill to provide a billion dollars in loans to communities for public works proj. ects. Republican members, acting on a go-slow signal from President Eisenhower, forced a delay on this measure before the Easter recess. The House Wpys and Means Committee goes to work Wednesday on d ffering administration and Democratic proposals to provide extra unemployment pay t3 persons who have exhausted their benefits. President Eisenhower prodded Congress Sunday to act as "swiftly as possible" on the issue. Other congressional news: Reoreanization: Senate Democratic Leader Lvndon B. Johnson told newsmen he favored reorganization of the Defense Department but did not know whether he would "buy everything" in the plan put forward by Eisenhower.

Me-Clellan (D Ark.) said the U.S. attorney in charge of the Hnffq case had agreed to delay bringing it to trial so the committee's hearings could proceed as scheduled. Congress faces party - splitting contests on a number of other issues besides anti-recession legisla-t:nn and defense reorganization. Two of the biggest battles are ex-m-t-d over the President's four-billion-dollar foreign aid program and his request for a five-year renewal of the reciprocal tradj program.
