By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGaierte Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTON The first big literary controversy of 1963 is breaking It is centered about a novel One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich Russians were ling to queue up all night in Moscow to buy the magazine in which it appeared The book itself is news The way it is being published here is somewhat less important news but is not without a certain juicy element of struggle First off One Day is abou a former collective farm work er serving in the Russian arm who is captured by the Ger mans He escapes and crawl back to his own lines He is then arrested as a spy and sentencec to 10 years in a Siberian con centration camp under th nctorious Artcle 58 of the Sovie penal code The book is th story of one day in 1951 during that sentence The writ er Alexander Solzhenitsyn a mathematics teacher had simi lar experiences Now it is no longer news in Moscow that Russia had con centration camps under Stalin nor that Uncle Joe was a not entirely benevolent dictator In his famous secret speech of February 1956 N i k i t a Khrtfshchev said of Stalin He had completely lost conscious ness of reality he demonstrated his suspicion and haughtiness not only to individuals in the XJSSR but in relation to whole parties and nations But One Day describes the squalor of the concentration camp in detail not in convenroads icnt euphemisms The author makes it clear that the inmates were largely not political crim inals but ordinary humble non party Soviet citizens And he destroys as the translator of one version of One Day Ron ald Hingley points out the myth that Stalin didnt know what was going on down below Youll get no sympathy from Grandpa Whiskers one of the prisoners in the n o v e 1 shouts He wouldnt trust his own brother let alone you Interestingly enough two US publishers are putting out dif fering versions of One Day simultaneously dayanddate as they say in show business E P Dutton Co in coopera tion with British publisher Vic tor Gollancz is issuing the authorized edition translated by Ralph Parker a former British war correspondent This is the version that has been ap pearing serially in the English language Moscow News Frederick A Praeger had a different translation made by Hingley and Max Hayward the latter a cotranslator of Dr both of Oxford Uni versity And Praeger boasts that his version is unauthorized neither sponsored nor author ized by Moscow as advertised in Publishers Weekly Dutton has signed an agree ment with AmRus Literary Music Agency US representa tive of the Soviet state book trust Mezhdunarodnaya Kniga This originally had been viewed as purely a business courtesy but now Dutton says it will pay royalties to the Rus eians as consistent with the aims of the American Book Publishers Council and the mis sions to Moscow by Adlai Stev cnson Morris Ernest and others to seek Soviet adherence to copyright agreements Prager who sees it much more simply steal from them and they steal from is pay ing the equivalent of royalties to the International Rescue Com mission Royalties or no royalties the significance of Ofhe Day may be not that it could be published at all but
