the party a sweeping reorganization and set up n fifth 5year plan to increase Soviet industrial output 70 per cent by the end 1955 A decree o the partys central committee published in all Mos cow papers said the partys top control body its Politburo would e replaced by presidium hich would have the function of guiding the work of the party entral committee between scs ons New Statute The changes in party orgahiza on are provided in a new statute o be taken up bythe congress It is clear that the new presl ium of the central committee will ave as much or perhaps even rioro importance
