CopvriqM Bx Frank Crepeau ZURICH, Switzerland (AID — Alexander Solzhenitsyn says he will be unable to complete his series of historical novels if tin' Kremlin does not let his tiles and archives follow him into exile. But that will not silence his writing The exiled Russian writer said “October 1916”, the second volume in his “historical novel of revolutionary times’ that began with “August 1914”, is almost ready for publication “The third volume is startl'd. and the rich collection of materials, documents, reports of eyewitnesses, photographs, illustrations and numerous rare books with my annotations has been compiled,” he continued in an exclusive interview Monday with the Associated Press “I have gathered these archives ever since 1966 and have put into them an enor mous amount of work lf the Soviet authorities confiscate them, even if only partially, it will Im' spiritual murder.” Toward Present Solzhenitsyn said he is too old at 55 to collect the materials again, and loss of the archives would mean abandonment of the project “But then my remaining years and strength, instead of being directed to Russian history. will bt' directed toward the Soviet present for which I will need no archives,” he declared. “All my life I constantly did literary work without a break, even for a week. No matter how it hurts, no matter how hitter it is to start this work here, I will carry it on, even here.” The interview, the first given by Solzhenitsyn since his expulsion from the Soviet Union last week, was conduct ed at the apartment of his Swiss lawyer, Fritz Heel). The author took written questions into another room, wrote out his answers and then returned and rapidly read the responses aloud in his highpitched voice. “Will Return” “I know for myself that my right to Russian earth is no less than the right of thixse who took upon themselves the audacity to physically throw me out,” he said in response to one question “I have the feeling that in a few years, I will return to Russia. How it will happen, how changed will be the conditions, I cannot foretell. But no one and nothing can pre dict the future. Wonders never cease to occur in our lives.” Solzhenitsyn’s second wife, their three sons, her 11-year-old son by a previous marriage and lier mother are still in the Soviet Union. Soviet government statements have said his family can join him in the West “when they deem it necessary,” and his mother-in-law is expected to come too. “If one is to believe the statements of members of tile Soviet government, my family will be let go without hindrance,” Solzhenitsyn said “But without my presence, for two women with four children, it is not easy to liquidate an existence of many years, to pack up, to get moving, to find a moment when none of the children are sick ” Bank V isit Solzhenitsyn visited a bank Monday to take care of some business Blat he did not discuss.
