It has also elevated East Germany into a position next to the Soviet Union a spot occupied by Czechoslovakia only a few years ago. In a triumphant address to the ninth plenum of the central committee of his Socialist Unity Party in late October. Ulbricht said, ""our party has stood the test of power," and he went on to list the Soviet Union and East Germany together while relegating all other East European states to a secondary position. The only major point where Soviet foreign poiicy resists Ulbricht's influence is West Berlin, w hich he would clearly like to seize as "belonging to the territory" of East Germany. Here the Soviet reserves the right to prevent provocations that might call for a strong response by the three guardians of the isolated city the United States, Britain and France. Yet in the last 22 months Moscow has allowed him to undertake a series of actions limiting access to West Berlin and making it more expensive through highertolls. The foundation of Ulbricht's power is the East German economy, which the Socialist Unity Party has guided into a position unparalleled in the Communist world. v" Door PrtiM (C) Now York Times Newt Strvkt BERLIN - His beard, trimmed in the imperial style, has gone white. His pace seems less springy. But Walter l'lbncht. in his 76th year, seems omnipresent in East Germany and most of Communist Europe. Within his German Democratic republic he is supreme as never before, glorying in a Walter Ulbricht Academy ot Science, a Walter l lbricht Chemical factory and even an l'lbncht string quartet. There is L'lbncht the arbiter ol the arts, banning a suspected bourgeois version of Goethe's Faust'' and ordering the creation of a "socialist national culture." There is also l lbricht the scholar, applying to East German traditional Prussian ESTABLISHED 1904 SALE Decorator Curios Badcodib 1 1 i i tit Cam in and see this bread selection of Room Decorator Curios styled and designed lo enhance the beauty ol any room. 24" 38" A J6" 34" S19.8S 22" x46" & 31" 42" 29.88 23" x 34" Clock Curio $49 95 35" x 54" Modern Curio $59.88 31" x 31" Starbursl Clock $29.95 $1.00 DOWN DELIVERS YOUR CHOICE was fIJnej'i fit 64th ANNIVERSARY I SENSATIONAL LIVING ROOM VALUE WORN f 'X mi i v mm mm 4' m 1 IM ft WITH BUILT-IN teaching of the supremacy of the state; Ulbricht the sportsman, as patron of the country's successful Olympics team: Ulbricht the soldier, lecturing army officers, and Ulbricht the architect, approving a gigantic monument to Lenin in East Berlin. Such roles have not been unfamiliar to him or to his 17-million people during the two decades of his rule. Now lirst secretary of the party and chairman of the council of state, Ulbricht dates his power to 1949, when he was named deputy premier. Through his control of party machinery, he effectively ruled the country. What is new is Ulbricht's role in the Communist bloc as the man who is acting virtually as the political equal of Leonid I. Brezhnev, the Soviet party leader, and on some issues the man who is said to set the tone of Kremlin foreign policy. Ulbricht and his aides asserted last month that they had been the first to warn of the danger of revisionism in Czechoslovakia, as far back as Soviet officials freely praise Ulbricht's ideologist. Kurt Hager, as "the first to point out the counterrevolutionary course of the new-Czechoslovak leadership last March.'' Knowledgeable East European Communists are unanimous in the opinion that it was Ulbricht who persuaded a wavering. Suspicious of continuing liberalization in Prague, he went to Karlovy Vary Aug. 12 to demand repressive measures by the Czechoslovak party chief, Alexander Dubcek. When Dubcek refused. Ulbricht reported to Moscow that intervention was the sole course, the officials say. His rationale, he later told his central committee, was that "imperialist aggression against Czechoslovakia was the necessary precondition for a push" against East Germany. The occupation, he continued, "secured the southern frontier." Thus, in the view of these Communists, 1968, which began as the year of Dubcek in central Europe has ended as the year of Ulbricht.
