To s to. Wed. April 22 Moose Lodge Here by William l. Ryan a special correspondent Leonid Illich Brezhnev is general Secretary of the soviet communist party. As such he is supposed to be concerned primarily with. Its. Affairs. He has been charging with such vigor and authority into the affairs of the government and the Economy since december that it seems Likely he tas become if not a new Strong Man at least the first among equals in the Kremlin a collective leadership. What might this mean for East West relations what might it mean for such important matters As Salt the strategic arms limitation talks in Vienna experience indicates that fixed soviet russian and communist attitudes survive regimes and personalities. Nations like people can be captives of habit and in the russians Case it would be More difficult for the Lea Des to abandon their communist notions that it would for a Chain smoker to quit cigarettes. Like other Kremlin leaders of the moment Brezhnev is a Sta Lin Era product and thinks that Way. This Means that whether or not he is top Man whether or not Premier Alexei n. Kosygin is pushed aside it is going to continue to be extremely difficult for the United states to reach an understanding with one Kremlin habit is inherited from czarist russian suspicion of All outsiders. Even what might seem an obvious conces Sion to Moscow is Likely to be viewed with deep distrust. Stalin liked to quote a russian proverb a an obliging Bear is More dangerous than an another habit is fidgeting about Security something the russians have been doing for centuries the nation s leaders continue today to search for Security through such devices As creating satellites and Buffer zones Moscow a insistence that it dominate the application of a socialist Quot ideology in its Camp is a manifestation of this obsession the Brezhnev doctrine claiming a soviet right to intervene wherever Quot socialism is endangered As in Czechoslovakia is the Kremlin a current Security Blanket.

If a Security treaty came about the commander of Warsaw pact forces wrote in the latest Kom Uniat there would be no need for the Warsaw or nato organizations what he neglected to say was that the Warsaw pact would remain in All but name because of the Brezhnev i Trine. Another repetitive soviet process is the shift from committee to Boas Rule. In the past the emergence of one Man at the top generated excitement abroad. This Tima the inclination is to shrug and ask Quot so wtat9�?� obviously from the words of the leaders. Communist attitudes Are Frozen anyway. How then might the current shifts in the Kremlin affect so important a matter As Salt one answer suggests itself Brezhnev despite his adherence to Dogma and slogans has the look of a plodding realist far teas Likely to Gamble than his predecessor Nikita Khrushchev.
