Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 19, 1949, Winona, Minnesota COLDER TONIGHT, SNOW SUNDAY VOLUME 49, NO. 234 THERE'S NO STATIC ON KWNO-FM 97.5 MEGACYCLES WINONA, MINNESOTA, SATURDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 19, 1949 FIVE CENTS PER COPY SIXTEEN PAGES Malenkov Red Crown Prince By Joseph and Stewart Alsop Washington Certain signs and portents have sent the experts in foreign offices all over the world scurrying for their intelligence files on a squat, plump man with heavy, saturnine features. This is Georgi M. Malenkov, who now seems the most likely successor to Josef Sta- lin as dictator of the vast Soviet empire. The most cogent evidence of Malcnkov's new ascendancy was the fact that he was chosen to de- liver the November 7 speech com- memorating the Russian revolution. Since the war. A. A. Zhdanov and V. M. Molotov have been chosen to perform this task, when their stars seemed brightest. Zhdanov's star has been eclipsed by death Molotov's star is by no means of the experts coun him out of the running. But there are signs that it has been waning And another portent Malen kov has replaced Molotov In the place of honor next the dictator i: the most recent official portrait of the Politburo. STALIN WILL BE 70 years Old on December 21, which is one rea- son why the speculation on his suc- cessor grows increasingly intense. But despite some heart trouble, Stalin still looks strong, and Mol- otov is approaching his 60th birth- day. Thus the course ,of nature al- so suggests that Malenkov, who is only 47 whether or not he now actu- ally outranks Molotov In the krem- lln's hierarchy, Is the most likely ultimate inheritor of the vast pow ers of the aging dictator. At any rate, Malenkov is now one of the half dozen or so key figures in the world, and it is time to inquire what manner of man he is. The answer is inconclusive, as always where the kremlin is con- cerned. But the Intelligence flies suggest that he is, as much as one man can be a copy of another, a carbon of Josef Stalin himself. Mal- enkov got his start to power In the twenties he served as Stalin's private secretary, 'and since that time he has consistently aped the dictator's manner and his dress. In- cluding the short, military-looking Jacket and the simple cap, MOREOVER, LIKE STALIN, Malenkov Is no theoretician or In- He is an operator, a OTaneuverer, and again like Stalin, !Uo has derived his power from the authority to assign all communists to their jobs. According to Intelli- gence reports (and also to the testi- mony of Igor Gouzenko at the Can adlan spy trials) this power is not limited to the Soviet Union. Malen- kov has been in charge of the for- eign section of the communist cen- tral committee. Foreign communists summoned to Moscow regularly visit him, and second only to Stalin he is considered the supreme director of the world communist apparatus.
