WILLIAM L RYAN AP ForeignNews Analyst Josef Stalins death apparently has delivered the leadership of the Soviet Communist party into a state of cold fear It may drive the vast nation toward a virtual military dictatorship The party and state apparatuses in announcing the death of Stalin declared the partys most im portant taskwould be the indoc trination of all workers in high political vigilance against intcrmii and foreign enemies oi the USSR Voice of Fear This is the voice of fear The party knew Stalin was old that be was bound to die but the fact of his death still is a profound shock not only to the politicians running the government but to the entire nation And such a shock can lead to dire consequences In losing Stalin the Communist parly lost its symbol of unassail able power The man or men taking over after Stalin may find it necessary a deal with the Soviet order to retain power to make army in Thus while the party siil may rule in name the nation could find itself moving in the direction of a virtual military dictatorship Deference to Army Much deference was shown the army in the communique report ing Stalins death The communi que still made the army care fully it would

described a strikingly simple heart surgical technique that has enabledhim to open up and work inside the human heart while its escaping blood is trapped and held in a rubber well Dr Robert E Gross reported he has kept a heart open as long as 2 hours and 5 minutes while patching or sewing up holes in a main blood chamber Writing in the Journal of the American Medical Association he told hovt the operation was used on seven children suffering from inter auricular scptal defects a reason ably common congenital heart dis order Four the children later died In a normal heart a wall scp arates the left andright auricles chambers that received the return flow of jfrom the veins In these cases however the childrenwere born withlarge or small openings in the wall1 This leakage greatly increased the amount of blood flowing through the right side of the heart present ing the threat of heart failure and death Dr Gross described the tech nique as follows He constructed a svell a coneshaped rubber container open at both ends After exposing the hearts by surgery he sewed the small mouth of the cone firmly to the wall of the heart chamber and then cut through the wallblockingthe bottom opening of the cone Blood pressure caused blood in the chamber to rise up into the well However normal gravity Each patientreceived by trans fusion an amount of blood equa to that which rose up into
