Interpreting The News THE OTTAWA HERALD Q Thursday, October 12, 1961 , » Khrush Has Raft Of Troubles As Red Congress Meets By WILLIAM L. RYAN Associated Press News Analyst The Soviet Communist party opens its 22nd congress Tuesday. Intensive propaganda promises it will mark the beginning of a march to Communist world supremacy. To dramatize Communist prospects, the Kremlin may even time a new spectacular space shot for the congress opening. Despite the showmanship, there are in the background suspicious signs of nervous strain in Soviet party and world Communist ranks. Premier Khdushchev, first secretary and party chief, promises the congress will be a turning point. It will consider a 20-year program to build the "base" of communism. Theoretically, the U.S.S.R. has.built "socialism." Communism, implying promise of abundance, is many-years away. Party congresses in their 83 years of history often have been billed as momentous turning points. Many have cloaked internal struggles. In recent years congresses provided—as the 22nd will —platforms to consider problems and strategy. What is the party congress? The congress supposedly is the party's ruling body, to which the central committee and its directing presidium are responsible. Required to meet once every three years, it is made up of functionaries from major political subdivisions of the U.S.S.R. It is supposed to hear and pass on programs of the central committee and party presidium, amend programs and statutes, fix tactical lines on fundamental policy questions and elect various party leaders. Actually it does none of this, instead merely applies the automatic stamp of approval. The con- gress is window-dressing for a claim to democracy. Under- Stalin the dictator's hand-picked politburo was the law. Under Khrushchev, the key body appears to be the central committee, where his own political machine has been strong enough to outmaneuver his enemies in the past. Khrushchev had stood for the notion that the U.S.S.R. could so build its economy that its political and economic drives would make communism invincible in the world without the risk of nuclear war. It was a cautious policy. But while a half dozen .years of supremacy by Khrushchev made headway for communism with the economic and political infiltration in many areas, Soviet Communists added no new slices of real estate to the empire. Indeed, in some respects, they experienced losses. For hard-shell Stalinists, the world revolution moved to slow- ly. Communists were set back in the Middle East, notably in Iraq. Moscow quarreled with Gamal Abdcl Nasser, spokesman for Arab nationalism. Communism was'hes- itant about pushing ahead in Indochina. It was plagued by ideological bickering with Yugoslav Communists on one hand and, Chinese on the other. It made no headway in economically flourishing Europe. It gained Cuba, but that was dumped in its lap and was by no means reliable or secure. Inside the Communist worM there were political and economic strains. Attempts to integrate the European Red bloc economies brought problems to individual Communist governments. There, were strains in ths U.S.S.R. itself. Party propaganda makes no bones about the fact that "building communism" will mean many more years of labor for a people impatient to share in riches now poured into heavy industry to build world power.
