r d m o r e Charles City Think Reds Spreading Out Power Many Find Good Signs By DONALD J GONZALES WASHINGTON authorities Tuesday said the sur mise elevation ofMarshal Nikolai Julganin to the Soviet premiership ndicates that the real power in lussia is being spread out among several top men in the Kremlin That they said could be less dangerous to the West and to world peace than concentration of supreme authority in one Stalin like dictator A tougher foreign policy may result however When word of Georgi Malenkovs resignation first reached this capi tal the initial reaction of diplo matic experts and congressional eaders was to interpret it as an ominous sign that Russia would adopt a tougher policy in world affairs This appraisal was based on the almostuniversal expectation here that Nikita Khrushchev sec retary of the Communist Party would succeed Malenkov Spreading Out Power The subsequent announcement of Bulganins election brought expres sions of marked relief from au thorities who are intimately concerned with Soviet affairs They said Bul janin despite his army back ground has not been regarded as a particular y strong man or militaristic type Rather he MOLOTOV tias been the political commissar iype of general whose role in the Kremlin has been to maintain Communist Party control over the army One expert said it is possible that Bulganin is primarly a front man for a ruling junta and that the real leader or leaders are standing in the Khrushchev who nominated Bui ganin for premier and Foreign Minister V M Molotov doubtles will remain highly important in the Kremlin hierarchy he said Army on Top In any event authorities said it appears that with Bulganin as premier there will be a spreading out of power with the army and the Communist Party both repre sented at the top rather than a clearcut emergence of one all powerful ruler like Stalin leaders feel that this kind of multiple leadership is less likely to take radical actions that might plunge the world into war than would be a single unchallenged dictator Most congressional leaders were guarded in their appraisal of the sudden shift of Soviet leadership Marchuk Charged With Desertion BERLIN
