total paralysis Other milder forms of sclerosis reduce control over physical movements a Danish medical authority said Jespersen was one among many leaders of Communist parties in Europe who went to Moscow to find out what was behind Khrushchevs ouster last month The first reason given out in Moscow was that the Communist party Central Committee and Ihe Supreme Spvict Presidium granted NS Khrushchevs request to be re lieved of his duties because of his advanced age and deterio rating health To most who had seen him just prior to his descent into ob livion he had appeared in fairly
