WTAD Quincj 9I0 Sunday KGLO W01 Ames Thursday WSUI city 910t Saturday Mystery Behind the iron Curtain KLTHOUGH Americans in ever increasing numbers go into Russia on guided tours none ever comes out with what seems to be a cdmplete or authentic story of whats really going on We hear much talk about the ferment which has followed the effort to downgrade Stalin which got under way in a speech by Krushchev last February But theres nothing specific Conditions in the satellite coun tries are if anything even more obscure We heard a good bit about the Poznan riots in Poland last spring Refugees got through to West Berlin with a playbyplay story about the uprising But the curtain of silence imposed since that brief flurry has been even more impenetrable than it was before The one thing quite clear is that the situation for the present mas ters of the Kremlin was not as bad as the free world hoped More than a few observers were pre dicting a toppling of the Krush chev Bulganin Zhukov triumvi rate long before this But theyre still hanging on vodka orgies and all Kremlin Still in Control Nor have the Poznan riots been followed by the open outbreaks which seemed so likely three months ago Communists every where outside Russia are de scribed as confused and res They were shocked to learn what a bum their great hero Joe Stalin turned out to be But they still seem to be taking their or ders from the Kremlin All in all because of the pro nounced dearth of uptothemin ute information out of Mother Russia or the satellite states we are more dependent on academic speculation and conjecture than on reliable fact as we contemplate the future role of Communism in our world And one of the first lines of thought that comes to us on this basis is that the new Communism with at least a slight relaxing of discipline in its ranks is likely to encounter some troublesome breakers ahead Communism is nothing if it isnt discipline Thats been the very core of its strength down through the years since Lenin charted its course almost 40 years ago Iron Discipline Needed Secretary of State Dulles not long ago stated the matter in these words Communism is presented with an almost impossible dilemma be cause such a despotism cannot in the long run work except through the iron discipline im posed by Although they do a lot of talk ing about democracy there is never even a claim by its adher ents that Communism rests upon the consent of the governed Com munism never went anywhere by popular wish and it could remain no where in our world if those it enslaves could make the decision Herein has lain its greatest strength up to now and para doxical as it may seem herein lies the surest guarantee that ul timately it will fall of itsN own weight Its precisely this I have had in mind when so many times I have maintained that Commu nism contains within itself the seeds of its own destruction Perhaps the most dramatic proof of the changed emphasis on discipline is to be found in Titos new status as a Communist In the days when he thumbed his nose at Stalin he was loathed and despised around the Kremlin He was hated as a betrayer Titos Status Under the new dispensation he goes to Moscow by handengraved invitation and is welcomed as a conquering hero Krushchev re turns the call proceeding on with him to the Yalta so much in the news these past ten years Titos example just cant be lost on those satellite nations which in the past have cringed in obedi ence to the Kremlin Tito pursu CONTINUED ON PACE 2 AP Wirephoto IN TROUBLE UP TO HIS Marlcr l Sel ma

Thats what the residents of voting age m Washington Township Appanoose County southeast of here report This is important only if one believes in preelection polls But Washington Township voters have
