Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 15, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta g TH! IETHBRIBO! HBRAID Tuosday, Ssplember IS, 1970 Soviet MOSCOW (AP) The So- viet Union sees that its top men live in style and put up a good appearance for visiting chiefs of stale. Leonid I. Brezhnev has a "summer Kremlin" at the Black Sea resort of Cape Pit- sunda. In Moscow, both the Communist party chief and Premier Alc.xei N. Kosygiu like to spend their non-work- ing hours at nearby country dachas. In town, Kosygin lives in a copper-roof mansion in the Lenin Hills area near Moscow University. It has a luxurious garden, tennis courts and an indoor swimming pool. Brezhnev and President Ni- kolai V. Podgorny, whose powers are somewhat cere- monial, have spacious apart- ments in Moscow. This Kremlin Iroika makes up the elite here along with the members of the politburo and the central committee of the Communist party and var- ious generals and marshals. In the summer virtually all these people flock to .Black Sea resorts around Sochi and Yalta. The leaders have posh seaside villas which belonged to nobility when the czars ruled Russia. Brezhnev and most of tha politburo congregate at Cape Pitsimda. Foreign journalists who have accompanied visit- ing heads of state to these heavily-guarded premises teli of rare art, lavish furnishings and Ihrongs of servants. WELL I'AID Salaries of the Soviet hier- archy are secret, but it's gen- erally believed that senior Communists and military men above Uie rank of general earn rubles a month, equal to at the official U.S. exchange rale. In addi- tion they get housing and cars. There are other perquisites. Officials enjoy special shop- ping privileges. In the state department store GUM a spe- cial Section 20 offers top-qual- ity Western goods often una- vailable to other people. Children of prominent Com- munist party officials have lit- tle fear of the future. Stalin- ist-type purges have been re- placed by ousters that are not nearly so harsh. If a parent is forced out of office in some Kremlin shakeup his family still is assured of a comforta- ble existence. The first step in acquiring power in the Soviet Union is Lo obtain a membership card in the Communist party. Only five per cent tf the Soviet population, around :itizens, are party members. This makes them a class apart, but they slill have a ong way to go to attain elite status. Once a Communist makes the inner circle only an inlra- party power struggle can dis- lodge him. PAKTY THE JUDGE The closed nature of the rul- ing elile is evidenced by a "nomenclature" system. A nomenclature official is a sen- ior man or woman eligible for appointment lo a post of lead- ership or responsibility. These persons answer only to the party. Criminal proceedings cannot be started against them without agreement from the party body supervising their activities." Any senior position in the political, economic or public sectors qualifies as a nomen- clature post. This runs the gamut from central commit- tee members to directors in industry, chairman of citv councils and factory mana- gers. The official Soviet press sometimes reports misdeeds that may involve bribery, profiteering or misappropria- tion of state funds. Semor offi- cials thus accused draw re- bukes from their party com- mittees and are reassigned. The party newspaper Pravda once complained "artificial barriers to protect ;heir imaginary authority." The newspaper Sovetskaya Sossya told of an official who >egan to "flaunt his party nembership card before jun- or workers." He was expelled GRumLlyTalk. Next best thing to a big gab around the kitchen table is the dearly remembered voices over a long distance phone. There's nothing liks family voices to strengthen family lies. Woudn't Aunt Annie be pleased to know you bought that house with the spare bedroom? Tell Cousin Fred you won the bet you've lost 15 pounds! Families that rely on long distance are never far apart. Next time you've got any good news tell the family by long distance. Remember, it's cheaper after 6 and all day Sunday. ALBERTA GOVERNMENT TELEPHONES n Style from the party for displaying "the dangerous microbe of selt-inlerest." At some stage top Soviet officials acquire limousines and the right to defy red lights. A row of policemen guard the centre lane of Kuluzovsky Prospekl. They make sure that the black limousines allotted to the elite don't get stuck in traffic. The Chaikas and Zils purring to and from the Kremlin have curtained windows, making only the chauffeurs visible. The policemen, playing it safe even if they can't see the occupants, always spring to snappy Polar Bears Hunted CHURCHILL, Man. (CP) -Aerial reconnaissance is being used in efforts to track down and kill two wounded polar bears in northern Manitoba. The bears were reported to lave been shot at Goose Creek, 10 miles south of this Hudson Bay point. Said conservation officer Paul Rod, at Thompson: "we consider both a little more dangerous right now than the average polar bear." Problems with bears are an-icipated in the Churchill area mlil ice forms along Hudson Bay and the bears move out to their winter habitat on the sea Crc WINNIPEG (CP) Ccrea rusts were more severe and widely distributed in Western Canada in 1970 than for many years with losses amouting to about 12 million bushels or ?6 million. The figures were provided today by the federal agriculture department's Winnipeg He-search station in its first rust development report in two years. Researchers said the main vheat varieties grown in the area continue to be resis-ant to stem rust, but the recently released pitic 62 variety s susceptible to a new, uncommon but widely distributed race and' moderate infections developed in small plantings of pitic 62. Wheat leaf rust was preva-ent in most of western Canada nd moderately severe infec-ions developed in Manitoba nd Saskatchewan on common vheat varieties including Mani-ou, which predominates in Rust Loss T recently released variety. Oat crown rust was more prevalent than in 1969 when it caused estimated loss of 3.5 million bushels and oat stem rust was prevalent and destructive for the first time in many High The heaviest infections were in southern Manitoba ant south eastern Saskatchewan where stem rust infections exceeding 30 per cent and crown rust infections of about 80 per cent were common in medium and late crops.
