want to provoke a general war anywhere at this time nor for several years according to best information available here In fact while previously anxious to stir up trouble in the Mid east and capitalize upon it they now are fearful that they had over extended themselves in this area The one thing they dont want in the next few years is general is the way one top nently wellinformed observer puts it Present Kremlin rulers this ex pert says have one of the most stupendous jobs of reeduca tion in world history on their hands in their current program to deStalinize Russian history and thinking Constant Reminders This Russian problem will be with the Kremlin for a long time and constant reminders from the west of its existence will work to the advantage of the f re e world and also to the advantage of a new freer thinking class within Russia itself according to some acute analysts here This conception does not mean that revolution is imminent or likely within Russia It does mean that the Kremlin has a new class of persons technicians and the like with which to contend in ternally and they do not wish to follow blindly a leadership so closely associated as formerly with the Stalinist Blood Bath1 techniques and excesses v Nor does it mean that the threat to the free world has lessened the present sweetness and light policy of the Kremlin ultimately may spell greater danger to the west than in the past The Soviet Union according to best infor mation here has a very strict timetable for development of its new weapons extending over the next several years during which time it does not wish serious trouble either internally or ex ternally Brink of War This also does not mean that the present rulers of Russia may not bring the free world to the brink of war in some cases but their policy at the moment ac cording to best estimates is to avoid overall engagements Mean time despite all peaceful state ments the Communist philoso phy of world domination has not been changed or relaxed Meanwhile however the Krem lin is caught in the dilemma of developing technicians and en gineers who can not be taught their specialties without also be ing advised something of Rus sian history under Communism which the Kremlin now is eri gaged in trying to make it ap pear somewhat less bloody to the middle which the tech nicians are the upcoming new membersjthan was actually the case The stupendous and equally dangerous task of deStaliniza tion would not have been under taken had not the Kremlin been convinced that the menace of this rising middle class was not

conference was the second formal meeting of the little summit talks being held during the 10day Soviet visit The goateed Soviet premier was a little less blunt than Khrush chev who delivered a sharp warn ing that Moscow will bow to no pressure to abandon communism but he was equally firm His lis teners included Eden and large gathering of British statesmen Following the lunch which was given by the city of London in honor of the visiting Russians the British and Soviet government chiefs returned to Downing Street and their third formal session Britain and the West were studying Khrushchevs warhang not to try to exert pressure on the Soviet Union will get you He accompa nied this with accounts of speedy Soviet jets ballistic missiles and hydrogen bombs Khrushchev in a facetoface peech with Britains leaders re minded Britain and the world that Russia is Communist and will re main so Contents of his speech were broadcast by Moscow Radio and released by the Soviet Em bassy here despite an agreement to keep the AngloSoviet talks secret Khrushchev who rarely minces words when the necessity arises warned Britain and indirectly the United States and the rest of the Western world not to have any illusions because Russia is Com munist and firmly intends to re main so Most of his speech to a Soviet Embassy lunch attended by Eden and Foreign Minister Selwyn Lloyd was devoted to the theme jf coexistence and brotherly love as the only solution for the world Behind the remarks was the fact that Russia will hew to the Com munist line despite a few conces sions here and there
