positions FROM ODE WIRE SERVICES MOSCOW The Soviet Union moved younger men into high government and Communist party posts Thursday in a massive shakeup that left Nikita S Khrushchev still unchallenged at the top The shuffle in which there were some expected demotions took Frol Kozlov out of his government post as a first deputy premier and catapulted him into a streamlined party secretariat ofseven men the repositoryj of ultimate power in the Soviet j Union Kozlov 51 visited the United States last year In the Soviet Union the com munist party is more powerful than the government Khrush Nixon still has lead on Adlai Little change in voter sentiment on personalities By KENNETH FINK Princeton Research Service PRINCETON N of the latest trial heat of voter preference show Vice Pres ident Nixon holding a substan tial lead over Adlai Stevenson This is the way the Princeton Research Service sees it at this time Nixon 546 Stevenson445 Undecided9 Excluding the undecided vote the figures become Nixon 55 Stevenson 45 TWO MONTHS AGO findings on the same question showed the following NIXON 534 per cent STE VENSON 456 per cent unde cided 10 per cent In other words since early March senti ment for the men has remained approximately the same It must be understood that days poll findings reflect only current sentiment and that opin ion can and may change be tween now and six months away Todays split in sentiment among Democrats Republicans and independents is worthy of particular mention For in stance NLxon has more than 9 out of every 10 Republicans in his camp whereas Stevenson has not quite 4 out of every 5 Democrats with him Survey findings also show that Nixon outpolls Stevenson among rank and file independents by a mar gin of about 12 to 7 HERES HOW Democrats Re publicans

KirichenkoAverki Aristov Pyotbr Pospelov and Nikolai Ignatov while Kozlov was added to it Two persons were dropped from the presidium of the partys central committee Kirichenko and Nikollai I Bel yayev and three added Alexei Kosygin Nikolai Pod gorny and Dimitri Polyanski Kosygin also was given Koz lovs government job of first deputy premier The other first deputy premier is Anastas Mi royan whose position was not changed IT WAS THE biggest re shuffle of high Soviet posts since June 1957 when an anti party group was purged The new changes which were decided on Wednesday in paral el meetings by the 133member party central committee and he presidium of the Supreme Soviet were viewed by political experts here rather than jointed out that none1 of those who were downgraded were discredited or thrown out of the central committee com pletely as happened with the VIolotov group three years ago Rather it appeared obvious he move was designed to im prove the government and arty leadership with younger more efficient administrators The new men to watch now are Kozlov Kosygin Pod orny and Polyanski North Iowa Showers and thun derstorms Thursday nigh with locally more than on
