Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - January 5, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Blistering Tass Attack On Solzhenitsyn Book MOSCOW Soviet Union has responded for the first time to Alexander Solzlien- itsyn's new book, unleashing blistering attack against the Nobct prize-winning author anil his indictment of Soviet prison camps. the official Tass news agency said in an article Wednesday night the book, "The Gulag Ar- was a "gross defa- mation of the entire Soviet peo- ple." The book, a (iOli-p.age expose of Soviet prison camps and po- lice methods, was published in Russian in Paris last week with translations in oilier major lan- guages to follow shortly. Trial Possible Western diplomats said they would not be surprised if auth- orities bring Solzhenilsyn to trial for publishing the hook abroad. Tass said the interest aroused by the book in the West was "certainly not" due to its liter- ary merits, which the agency said Western reviewers were forced lo ignore. The agency said "the new an- ti-Soviet political lampoon was sent by Mr. Solzhenitsyn to the West as a New Year's present to the enemies of his mother land." The Tass attack was carried in Russian, but there was no in- dication it would be published by the general media. The only news about (he book to enter, the Soviet Union so far lias come through foreign radio broad- casts. "Hates Revolution" Tass said Solzhenitsyn's new work was snapped up by "bour- geois" newspapers and "gave them the pretext to try to ascribe to Soviet reality the ulcers and vices typical of capi- talism." Tass said Solzhenilsyn "hales all which was brought about by the October (1917) revolution and it is this helpless hatred that is the muse for his new works, including 'The Gulag Ar- chipelago'." Tass accused Solzhenitsyn of having kind words both for the czarist regime and Nazism and said his book offered "a nice pretext for whipping up anti- Soviet hysteria." Tass described 'The Gulag Archipelago" as a "rehash of old themes postwar prison camps, the network of secret in- telligence allegedly shrouding the whole country, persecution of intellectuals, and confine- ment of differently minded per- sons in psychiatric hospitals and gross defamation of the entire Soviet people." 30 YEARS AGO The Office of War Information revealed that thus far I he Allies had liberated only a fourth of the j territory overrun by the Nazis am! a 20th of the land seized by Japan.
