'Molotov Plan/ Red Answer to Atlantic Pact, Forges a Military Bloc from Poland to China EDITOR'S NOTE: How will Russia ent scale. Specifically It answer Die Atlantic Pact? How docs Riissl* plan to use China's manpower? What has Vyncheslav Molotov been up to since he relinquished the Russian foreign ministry !i> early March? Where are Bulganln and Mlkoyan, who dropped out o( sight at the same time'? Here Is a highly circumstantial explanation obtained by NEA's special European Correspondent, Leon Dennen, from sources on the Coni- nlform which have previously proven trustworthy. Dennen, who has just returned to Paris after visits with state department officials ;n Washington, cabled his desk "This, seems to me. Is the most Impor- ant story that has come my way a long time."

Tile renewed Communist offen- ive In China may be the first step ii activating the plan. While the Russians spread rumors f new peace gestures In the Cold War In Germany, the master plan is }clns; put together by some top 'olltburo members tnvolvd In the Soviet cabinet shakeup early in March which puzzled the Western world. I have obtained this Information rom sources whose inside knowledge of the Comnlform has proven nstworthy on repeated previous occasions. These source* say the military .Iliancea, which will Include eastern Germany. Finland and China la wet! as the Russian satellite nations, is "the most significant international event since the rise of the Soviet sstate." The job of planning the bloc was given lo Vyacheslav Molotov, the thin-lipped, antagonistic vet- Iran of 21 years In the Politbureau who turned in his portfolio as Foreign Minister In the March 5 cabinet shift, presumably to work on the new "Molotov Plan/' Working with litm, according to lomniform sources, have been Marshal Nikolai A. Bulganin. who s Minister of Armed Forces In the cabinet until the shakeup; A. I. Mikoyan, who dropped his cabinet post as Minister of Foreign Trade; Laurenti Beria. head of the MVD (Soviet secret policel. and Georgi Dimitrov, who was recalled to Moscow from his job as Premier of Bulgaria. Dimitrov Is In bad health, but reliable informants Inside the Iron Curtain say he is neither desperately 111 nor in disgrace, as was rumored when he was recalled shortly after the cabinet changes. A.tormcr Soviet citizen and, * great favorite with Stalin, triese informants believe he has been recalled to take charge of an Intensified campaign against Tito and to resume his old job as general secretary of a revived and expanded Communist International. Foundation of the "Molotov Plan" is reported to be military and economic planning on a two contin- resources of the countries In Russia's sphere of Influence. 2.
