Khrushchev Is 1 Man That Never Was Delta Democrat-Times Sunday, May 30, '65 23 MOSCOW (DPI) - Former Premier Nikila S. Khrushchev is suffering the strangest fate perso: of any fallen Soviet leader. The one-time ruler of "all Ihe Russians" has become the man that never was. He is the first complete "un- of that statute since Ihu Russian Revolution.

Democrats Defend Poverty 'War' WASHINGTON (UP) - House Democrats, rallying in defense of President Johnson's war on poverty, say that Republican criticism of Ihe program is "political press agenlry at the taxpayers' expense. The Democrats say the antipoverty campaign is off to a good start. They label a Republican charge that it is being bungled and "in danger of collapse" as irresponsible. The Democratic defense the war on poverty was prompted by conflicting reports Friday from the majority and minority sides of the House Labor and Education Committee. Earlier this month the panel approval a request by President Johnson to double spending for .he program to SI.5 billion in the fiscal year starting July 1. The legislation is expected to be considered by the House in June. Republican and Democratic committee members disagreed on practically every part of the program. While the GOP criticized administration of antipoverty projects, the Demo- f crats said: * t t "The war on poverty, scarcely !0 months old, has been well begun . . . it is possible to say that the program as a whole appears to be soundly con- ceived and that administration of it is being well and faithfully carried out." AS FOR the GOP criticism, Rep. Sam Gibbons, D - Fla., floor manager for the bill, said: "That was no legislative report. H was political press agentry at the taxpayers' expense." Gibbons said that only two Republican committee members had bothered to join Democrats on inspection trips of anti - poverty projects earlier this year. He said that three GOP members had refused to sign the minority report "apparently because they were repulsed by it." ciied obliquely by reference to' soino of his policies and style! of government, but never by: name. The authorities have gone to he length of requesting owners of desk calendars to remove the page dated April 17 which car-! ricd a notation of Khrushchev's' nrtliday. Stalin's birthday, Dec. 21, is,: y contrast, still noted on desk' calendars. Other Sxivlet leaders from con Trotsky to former Premier Vyacheslnv M. Molotov and Defense Minister Marshal 3corgi 7.hnkov hnve been disgraced and discredited. Some of .hem have been branded as 'criminals." But their names ;li!l occur in Soviet print occasionally even if only negatively. The young generation of Russians studying their national history may never learn that Trotsky was once founding father Lenin's right-hand man, that he was the first Soviet foreign minister and defense commissar. * Â· * BUT THEY know that he existed, thai lie was not a "good Bolshevik" and are told that he opposed the Communist party on many issues. Stalin may have bccnme a fighting word in the Russian vocabulary. He is to some extent a forgotten though not a forgiven man but he has not been entirely eliminated from public print. Nut so with Khrushchev. Mum is the word on him. To the Soviet citizen just beginning to read newspapers it must appear that Khrushchev las never existed. Tliis strange silence on Khrushchev may be only temporary. It is possible that his iuccessors will maintain this ilackout until a policy decision is made on exactly what role to ascribe to him in official Soviet history. Until then he is an "unper- son."
