Hungarian leader stays on By SIDNEY WEILAND BUDAPEST (Reuter) After 17 years in power, Hungarian Communist leader Jjnos Kadar has signalled readiness to stay at the top until 1979. The quiet, self-effacing Ka- dar. 62. has been No. 1 man in Hungary since he took over a crippled party machine in 1956. in the aftermath of a national rebellion that was crushed by Soviet tanks Since then, he has turned Hungary into an economic and cultural showcase, possibly the most liberal country in the Soviet bloc. Kadar came out of a Communist prison 20 years ago and his subsequent political career has been a remarkable success story. Rumors about his retirement were dispelled when he agreed to head a committee which is drawing up a party program for a national Communist congress due to take place in March. 1975 The naming of Kadar as chief program writer indicates he will present the program to the congress and is virtually certain to be elected for another four-year term as the party's first secretary. PLAYS KEY ROLE Participation in the party congress will enable Kadar to play a key role in the shaping of a new five-year plan that will take Hungary into the 1980s Next to Bulgaria's President Todor Zhivkov. Kadar is the longest-serving party leader in the Soviet bloc" A slightly-built. unemotional man. he was thought at one time anxious to retire because of his health JANOS KADAR He still has lingering pain from the torture to which he was subjected as a prisoner for three years in a Stalinist jail, accused of espionage, treason and Titoism. When he took over party and government control in 1956. he was reviled by many Hun- garians as a man who capitu- lated to the Russians. He gained gradual confidence by pushing for a program of na- tional unity rather than recriminations and by relaxing the rigid pressures which existed under previous Communist regimes. Although he stays in the background, he is widely respected for policies which permit economic innovation and cultural relaxation without causing undue irritation to the Russians. But his foreign policy is loyally identical to that of the Soviet Union HJS pragmatic domestic pol- icies and his keen tactical sense have gained admiration elsewhere in Eastern Europe.
