Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 23, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Forecast high Tuesday near zero -A- voxnr LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, MONDAY, NOVEMBER 23, PRICE NOT OVER 10 CENTS e SECTIONS PAGES DELIGHTED DUNCAN Jim Duhcon, coach of Calgary Stampeders, gels a hug from his wife, Libby, after his team won the Western Football Conference championship. Calgary beat Sask- atchewan Roughriders 15-14 Sunday to take the best-of-fhree final. 1C Stalin NEW YORK (AP) As premier of the Soviet Union, Nikita Khrushchev led the campaign during the 1950s to dishonor the name of Joseph .Stalin. Reminiscences attributed to him by Life magazine renew his denunciation but say Stalin's second wife kept Khrushchev alive so he could rise to power. The first of four instalments, published in the magazine's Nov. 27 issue, describes Stain as a brutal man and murderer of millions who became unbal- anced during the Second World War, He distrusted everyone, his inner circle distrusted Mm and each other, and as early as 1923 Lenin wrote that Stalin had the requisite qualities for leadership but was not above abusing power, the article says. The reminiscences say Stalin had an insatiable capacity for alcohol and permitted thousands of Rus- sians to starve because tie thought pleas for help were plots against the state. The reminiscences are being published later in book form by Little, Brown and Co, Tass, the Soviet news agency, reported last week that Khrushchev said the memoirs were a "fabrica- tion, and he was indignant at this." It was the first time Khrushchev had been quoted in the Soviet me- dia since he was ousted in 1964 by Leonid Brezhnev and Alexei Kosygin. Repudiation likely Ralph Graves, managing editor of Life, said the magazine had spent a year verifying the authenticity of the manuscript "We had to be sure that what we had was not R Graves wrote in a foreword. Ho said the editors expected a repudiation from Moscow. Now 76, Khrushchev lias had heart trouble since last June and has been in hospital twice recently. He lives in seclusion in a villa 15 miles from Moscow. Khrushchev, according to the publication in Life, says Stalin's excesses, "unpleasant as they may must be spelled out for "the self-purification of our party." The recollections also express concern because "a few of our influential military leaders are try- ing to whitewash Stalin and put him back on his pedestal. They're trying to prove that if it hadn't been for Stalin, we would never have won the war against Hitlerite Germany. The reasoning behind this sort of claim is stupid. Reign of terror The article accused Stalin of causing clissstrous crop failures throughout the Soviet Union in the early W30s, then liquidating those around him as being re- sponsible for the famine. It says that during the great purges of Iho 1930s, Stalin murdered millions of per- sons, including some of the country's greatest mili- tary tacticians and reduced the effectiveness of the Soviet army when Germany invaded Russia in tho Second World War. "Honest, loyal Leninists, devoted to the cause of the were the first to go when Stalin imposed his arbitrary rule on the the article said. "We have no choice but to rehabilitate all of Stalin's victims All those who perished not only be given Iwk fhcir names: they should be presented to the people as martyrs of the terror waged by Stalin." Khrushchev survived tho purges, the articles says, because he was teaching Communist parly dogma at the Moscow Industrial Academy to Nadezhda Scrgcycvna Aliiluyeva, Stalin's second wife who com- mittal suicido in 1932.
