Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - July 8, 1965, Mason City, Iowa Se An AP Analyiit By WILLIAM L RYAN AP e Kremlin leadership shift brewin Signs of strain between re formers and conservative Com munists in the Soviet Union sug gest that Kremlin officialdom may be in for a new round oi musical chairs Some of the signs The Communist leadership apparently has decided to put off the party congress Theoreti cally the congress is the ruling body for nearly 12 million party members and meets every four years The last congress was October 1961 Four highranking govern ment and Communist party leaders have been missing for five or six weeks from impor tant official gatherings All rose to prominence under Nikita S Khrushchev The absence of these per sons may be connected with the downfall earlier this year of two other Khrushchev proteges It could mean that powerful forces have undertaken a determined campaign to rid the party lead ership of the Ukrainians and economic reformers who came up under Khrushchevs wing Almost from the day of Khru shchevs fall last October there have been hints of a clash be tween the two who divided his powers Party Chief Leonid 1 Brezhnev and Premier Alexei N Kosygin The clash seems to stem from differences on eco nomic reforms the effect of such reforms on party leader ship and the extent of party au thority which in conservative opinion should dominate every aspect of Soviet life even if it interferes with production Conservatives those who distrust anything suggesting lessened central authority have been restive in recent years The intrusion of other factors besides the divisiin over eco nomics makes it difficult to sin gle out the members of the con tending camps But it seems likely that Brezhnev despite his position as party chief may be in the reformer group and Kosy gin may represent the conserva tives Identities of the four missing leaders bolsters a theory that the Ukrainians are in difficul ties not necessarily connected with the troubles afflicting the younger reformers Perhaps the leadership of Brezhnev himself will be questioned The missing men are 1 Nikolai N Podgorny form er Ukraine party chief who be came a top secretary

Thursday a bill to crack down on bootleg traffic in goof balls and pep pills President Johnson asked for the legislation saying the grow ing illicit use of stimulant and depressant drugs was a factor in the trend toward lawlessness in the United States The House completed congres sional action on the bill with a voice vote The bill provides increased federal controls over the distri bution of barbiturates ampheta mines and other drugs Congress was told by witness es from the Food and Drug Ad ministration that tougher con trols were needed because 45 billion doses a year or more than half
