Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - May 10, 1965, Mason City, Iowa urprise An AP Analysis By GEORGE SYVERTSEN MOSCOW AP A burst of spontaneous applause for Jo sef Stalin revcrberalcd out of JOSEF the Kremlin during the weekend STALIN ancl across the Soviet Union The unrehearsed tribute Memory erupted suddenly after a fleet livts on ing mention of Stalin as the So viets World War II armed forces commander in chief in a speech on the 20th anniversary of VE Day by the new Soviet Communist party leader Leonid I Brezhnev The crowds reaction seemed to strike Brezhnev like a thun derclap Obviously surprised he stumbled over his text He quickly recovered his compo sure and abruptly cut off the demonstration by resuming his reading The manifestation indicated that despite nine years of de stalinization there may he many more fans of Slalin than the Soviet leaders suspected The crowd gathered in the 6 000seat Kremlin Palace of Con gresses auditorium was similar to the hundreds of Soviet au Stall diences before whom Nikita Khrushchev had denounced Slalin as a bloody tyrant Many were representatives ot the Soviet Communist party and government elite who professed complete sympathy with Khru shchevs vituperation toward the late dictator A majority of the audience howcvet were ordinary men and women who fought under Stalins command during World War II Many of them probably charged into combat shouting n still the bailie cry For the Mother land for Stalin Many were taught hymns to Slalin in schools and nurseries They still know by heart verses giving thanks to Stalin for ev erything from their daily bread to the onset of spring Small groups gathered in Red Square after the meeting to dis cuss the applause for Stalin Many openly repudiated Khrushchevs charges against the former Kremlin ruler Oth ers bitterly criticized Khru shchev The comments arc typical of the warm sentiments toward Stalin frequently encountered by Russianspeaking foreigners in informal contacts with ordi nary Russians Popular sentiment may soften the official criticism of Stalin but it is not likely to force the Kremlin leaders to rehabilitate him Khrushchevs successors are on record in favor of continued dcslalinization They recently made it clear that Stalins posi tive contributions particularly during World War 11 would be n acknowledged but that his mis takes and tyrannical methods would not be forgotten The Kremlin audience gave further evidence of the ease with which Russians can accept yesterdays villain as todays hero and vice versa Marshal Georgi Zhukov mak ing his first appearance in pub lic since Khrushchev banished him from public life in 1957 got a hearty round of applause The warm ovation clearly in dicated that Khrushchevs charges of political treachery against Zhukov had done little to tarnish the marshals image as one of the Soviet Unions popular wartime leaders Brezhnevs audience added another ironic note to the eve ning by applauding his mention of Communist Chinese leader Mao Tzetung the archvillain of Soviet antiChinese propagan da only a few months ago Some observers felt this was more a dutiful response to the current Soviet line ofconcilia tion and friendliness toward the Chinese than a demonstration of warm regard Schedule action on vote bill See passage this week WASHINGTON leaders said Monday they are hopeful of defeating a poll tax
