Lavrenti Beria, Chief of the Sec- ret'Police, and those who were allied with him, both had the means and was thought to have the motives to arrange such an episode. Then, within a few days after the death of Stalin, the old -nan's chosen heir, Premier Georgi ivialenkov, began to lose ground. Starting with the exposure of the doctors' plot, projects sponsored by Malenkov and personalities close to him were dramatically attack- ed or actually liquidated. The re- organization of the Communist Party Secretariat, the purges in the governments of Georgia, the Ukraine and Latvia, and certain shifts in the official party line, were all obvious blows to Malen- kov's position. Malenkov's name all but vanish- ed from the Soviet press. While Malenkov's power seemed to de- cline, the policies and supporters of Lavrenti Beria appeared to car- ry all before them. As Beria had been suspected of doing away with Stalin, so the master of the secret police was now again suspected of having removed Malenkov from the scene.
