Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 40-THE LETHBRIDQE Who will succeed aging By KEVIN DOYLE The CANADIAN PRESS The 10th congress of the Yu- goslav Communist party is celebrating what looks like a clear victory for 82-year-old President Tito over forces that threatened to rip apart his country's loosely-woven unity. But hand-in-hand with this victory is speculation about who will succeed the aging one of the most remarkable leaders in modern times. Opening the congress this Tito discussed purges which led the the expulsion of members from the party since it last met in 1969 and said that as a the six republics which make up Yugoslavia now are united behind the central government. Most observers praised his frankness and honesty and generally accepted his estimation of the country's security. Tito contended that with unity Yugoslavia now can safely co- operate with other Socialist or Communist countries without risking its independence. RUSSIANS INVITED The remark was considered especially significant because the congress was attended by Soviet representatives for only the second time since Tito broke with the eastern bloc in 1948. With an apparent display of he went out of his way to praise the Soviet Union as the land of while still affirming Yugoslavia's right to complete self- determination. The question now puzzling many western statesmen is who will take over when Tito steps down and whether his successor will show the same ability in controlling disruptive forces within the country. The most likely candidate for the job is 64-year-old Edvard Kardelj. a like was a hero of the anti-German resistance movement during the Second World War. But he lacks Tito's immense popular appeal and unfailing capacity for rallying all sections of the population in a crisis. These characteristics are vital for any future Yugoslav leader. While Tito pacified the country's disruptive forces for the time they are un- likely to remain dormant when he leaves the scene. SPLIT THREATENED Yugoslavia's basic problem is that it was moulded out of a PRESIDENT TITO number of small Balkan states and competing nationalities after the First World War. As in all there have been sporadic separatist move- ments ever since. The trouble came to a climax at the beginning of the 1970s after a decade in which Tito tried to develop a system of loose management by the central allowing a strong measure of autonomy to the various republics. But this opened the way for the leadership in the republics to pass into the hands of nationalists whose demands for even greater freedom threatened to break up Yugoslavia. By the problem had be- come acute. Tito was forced to act ruthlessly by dismissing local leaders in large numbers and expelling them from the party indefinitely. During the last four years he has been able gradually to rally public backing for restoring the principle of democratic centralism by which party members and all regional leaders must stick to the line laid down by Belgrade. His ability to accomplish this without for the most and without invoking crippling repression is a measure of Tito's capacity for leadership. But for the man who takes his place the problems of federalism may prove far more intractable.
