not come from American or other Western cor respondents in Moscow The cen sor still works on them 24 hours a day Its leaking out from Mos cow via diplomatic channels to foreign offices abroad and from there to the press So far the Soviet press and the Soviet radio have been totally silent about it all But it seems certain that soon theyre going to have to say something Obviously the Russian rumor mill is at work All over the coun try people are passing on to other people versions of what Khrush chev said And from outside the Soviet Union foreign broadcasts in Russian are transmitting back to those Russians who can hear them through the jamming stor ies of what the Western press is printing Stalins Crimes So perhaps part of the story of Stalins crimes is about to come out of the Soviet Union For the Western world it would be a sensation but a brief one Most westerners have lgngun derstood that Stalin had phobia and mistrusted everyone iaround him But if Soviet citizens hear this from their own government it is going lo be a severe and lasting shock Nearly everyone in Russia lost some dear one to Stalins purges and errors And such losses cannot be forgiven or for gotten Ali
