The new viceroys have been drawn from the Com- munist party hierarchy. This is the origin of Popoff in w'arsaw, Firu bin in Prague, Pavel Yudin in Pek- ing, and Ilyachev, who is now play- ing an important part in the Ber- lin conference. Cutting the secret police down to itself natural after Beria's fall is in turn thought to be only one feature of a general lev- elling and equalizing tendency in Moscow. The word is going 'round among the Russian experts, both here and abroad, that the Soviet Union is being run by a commit- tee system. The Premier, Georgi Malenkov, it is said, is simply the chairman of the board. These ideas, of a Soviet com- mittee system rule, and of Malen- kov's status as chairman, have al- ready gained the status of political cliches. Curiously enough, the mo- ment when the cliches were born can probably be identified, Polite to Brifish, French For some time now, the Soviets have been showing unusual polite- ness to the British and French Ambassadors to Moscow.
