Gouzenko Ready To Return To Ranks Of Literary Field By JACK TRACY Canadian Press Staff Writer Igor Gouzenko, the one-time Red Army lieutenant who ex- posed the first spy network of the Cold War, is ready to make his way back into the literary ranks.

Operating profits dropped to million from mil- lion in the corresponding period last year. Combined earnings, however, increased 17 per cent during the first nine months of fiscal 1969 from the corresponding period of last year, largely due to an exceptional first half. Bank profits during the latest three-month period were af- fected by the elimination of out-of-town exchange charges on cheques beginning in May. espionage trials with 12 convic- tions and they showed the West- ern world how the Soviet Union was ferreting out its military secrets. For the next nine years Gou- zenko, his blonde wife Svetlana and then- children led a cloak- and-dagger existence, guarded by the HCMP from what Gou- zenko still calls Soviet "retribu- tion." Then he burst on the literary scene with The Fall of a Titan, a sweeping novel of Stalinist days that Gouzenko still recalls as a "nightmare of terror." The book brought Gouzenko the Governor-General's Prize of 1954, a place in the Book-of-tlie- Month qub and in earn- ings which was quickly dissi- pated. Once a New York reviewer challenged Gouzenko to prove the novel was not ghost-written. Gouzenko met the challenge by bringing to a Toronto hotel suite a suit-case stuffed with more than words of the drafts and redrafts in Russian. Much of the novel's success Pearson Honored TORONTO (CP) Lester B. Pearson, former prime minis- ter, has been named honorary president of the World Federal' ists of Canada, it was an- nounced hare.

'Even if there was an erup- tion, it could probably be settled at one caucus said a lighly placed Conservative "But the publicity is something else; it takes months to settle." With Conservative L e a d e r Robert Stanfield likely to re- ceive a unanimous vote of confi- dence at next Wednesday's cau- cus here, senior party officials say the reports of dissension likely will disappear. ;The trouble is." said one, "that people will still bs talldng about the Saskatoon meeting until the next election." FIRM ACTION It is understood that Mr. Stan- field, after receiving the ex- pected vote of confidence, will pull no punches in demanding an apparent tightening of the ranks and an end to unauthor- ized discussions of the leader- ship. It won't be the first lime that Mr. Stanfield has had to tackle ;he leadership issue at caucus meetings. He is keenly aware that since tie took over the leadership From John Diefenbaker in 1967 that a minority of haps 15 or still prefer to see the former leader in the saddle. j It was hoped that an expected upsurge in Conservative! strength through the public opinion polls would gradually eliminate the dissatisfaction. But so far there has been no such upsurge, and MPs return- ing from the summer recess are not bringing back encouraging reports. Mr. Stanfield has publicly ac- knowledged t h e "we're not happy with the suc- cess we've been he now is in the process of put- ting new emphasis on meet-the- people type of gatherings be- cause, it is generally conceded, he comes across belter in small groups. The Conservative leader is Veteran CP Newsman Promoted TORONTO (CP) Jack Sul- livan, 56, who completes 40 years service with The Cana- dian Press this year, has been appointed General Day Editor of the news co-operative. Mr. Sullivan and his counter- part Jack Tracy, General Night E d i t o r, are responsible for hour-by-hour supervision of the development of CP's Canadian and international news reports. A native of Toronto, Mr. Sulli- van joined CP as a messenger in 1929 and worked in bureaus in Toronto, New York, Vancou- ver. Edmonton and London, England. He was CP Sports Ed- itor from 1948 to 19C6 when he left CP for a year to enter pri- vate business. He has worked on main news desks in Toronto since his re- turn to the CP staff in 1907. planning to travel widely In Canada over the next two years, meeting poeple in small gather- ings. These gatherings would heav- ily involve local MPs. Without then- support, they will be told, the effort would be useless. Sources say Mr. Slanfield is fully aware of the feelings of ceriain MPs, because some have gone to him directly with their viewpoints. "It would be very wrong to assume that the criticism has been behind his said one MP. One member was known to have gone to Mr. Stanfield last year to discuss Ihe possibility of leaving the party to sit as an in- dependent. A long conversation followed, sources say, and no such move resulted. The sources say that Mr. Stanfield, knowing the internal discontent is not disappearing, will make an effort to encour- age more heart-to-heart discus- sions with the members con- cerned.
