DAILY TRIBUNE tFRIDAY, OCTOBER 16, 1964 7 CENTS PER COPY — 35 CENTS PER WEEK ,000 MORE JOIN AUTOMOTIVE STRIK World Pon Russia's Future, Khruschev Fate . By HENRY SHAPIRO j United Press International ! MOSCOW (UPI) — Former Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev was reported today to be in total political disgrace or in completely broken health. Informed j sources said some of h i s top aides were being fired. While the world's best known Communist faded into political obscurity overnight his successors promised to continue his policies ' including peaceful coexistence with the West, a better life for the Russians and a hard line toward Peking. But in the meantime his aides were being dismissed one by one, the sources said. There was no official confirmation. The sources supported a growing belief that something was wrong in the state of the Kremlin by reporting the dismissals of such men as Alexei Adzhubei, his son-in-law and editor of the government newspaper Izvestia. Proteges Bounced The sources said long-t i m e Khrushchev protege Mikhail Kharlamov was bounced from his post; as chairman of the state television committee •and editor Paval Satyukov from the Communist party newspaper Prayda. By • continuing in Khrushchev's path Communist party leader Leonid I. Brezhnev and Premier Alexei N. Kosygin would be committed to non-deviation in a policy of peaceful co-existence with the West, de- Stalinization at' home and* a tough line with Ctimmunist China, i-. -- - Veteran diplomatic observers tended to take his pledge at face value and said tkey expected no basic. changes in Khrushchev's domestic and foreign policies | even though failure in them could have led to his downfall. The world was stunned at first by the unexpected Kremlin announcement Khrushchev, * 70, had been retired at his own request because of "advanced age and deteriorating health." Then it expressed anxiety over the future. Policy Change Unlikely Washington and the Western capitals foresaw no early change in the" peaceful coexistence policy but were prepared for a change if the Soviet troubles at homje and abroad continue to mount. Diplomats at the United Nations took the same viewpoint. But there was cautious apprehension, especially among Asian diplomats. In Saigon the South - Vietnamese were shocked and frightened. , President Johnson, speaking Thursday night in New York, said only the Khrushchev retirement "may or may not be. a sign of deeper ; turmoil or may-be a sign of changes to come." He said the United States would keep "steady on our goal"—a goal of peace. Brezhnev, 57, and Kosygin, GO, divided Khrushchev's supreme power in the Kremlin reshuffle. There had been none of the advance whispering that usually heralds dramatic events in the Kremlin weeks ahead. Only Thursday did the first rumors sweep Moscow. Then at midnight the governing Central Committee of the party announced tersely Khrushchev had been relieved. Disgrace Speculated There was no evidence to dis- .prove the claim that Khrush- was ill.-But there was mounting speculation Khrushchev was removed in disgrace, either for such domestic woes as last years disastrous harvest and economic and industrial troubles or for such foreign affairs as the . Sino-Soviet feud which has sundered- world communism. The Russian people for the most part did not learn of it until they read their morning papers. With the announcement was a pledge in the Communist newspapers Pravda that Brezh­ nev and Kosygin would carry out the Khrushchev program as laid down in the 20th and 22nd party' congresses in .1956 : and 1961. • -•- ••• • . Skepticism '• sod " ' mystery mounted in diplomatic circles about the announced reasons for the removal from power of a man whose authority and prestige outwardly were at their peak —and unchallenged. Whether he was relieved at his own request or booted out of office in a behind-the-scene power .struggle, the Kremlin succession was bloodless. It was - apparently the smoothest change of power, in Soviet history. Quick, Quiet Passing His career had been lusty, dynamic and well-traveled. His passing from the scene was quiet and abrupt About the only outward sign we're the disappearance of his many photographs and portraits from public view, one by one, s and overnight. . ' Moscow was calm as on any normal Friday morning. There were no tanks and no troop movements in evidence as in previous crises. Russians came and went freely into the Kremlin which was open for tourists. But there was a feeling of shock — it was difficult to accept the fact that Khrushchev whose dazzling personality had so dominated the Soviet scene could vanisL overnight But such are the ways of the Kremlin. • Most Russians went to bed thinking Khrushchev was still their leader. The midnight announcement was. distributed only to the foreign clients of the news agency-Tass. The first radio announcement came when tke.nation had already gone to bed./ . . • Observers Skeptical '•• Diplomatic-- observers"; were openly, skeptical about Ihe claim Khrushchev had.asked'.'tb be relieved of his duties'. They pointed out there was not" a single word of tribute, for the man who held Soviet power for "11 years after the death of Josef Stalin. A possible parallel was seen in the brusque retirement of Soviet President Mikhail Kalinin in 1946 despite the reverence millions; of Russians had for him. . ' The chief speculation centered on two points. Had th-e man whose perpetual : suritan and lively bounce that made him seem. far younger than: 70 actually suffered a sudden breakdown? Or had he been railroaded in disgrace. A major indication :of disgrace came from the fact he was removed from the party Presidium — a severe slap. It was noted that Khrushchev's one-time heir-apparent, IF r ol Kozlov, still retains his presidium title although he suffered a stroke. . • Whereabouts Unknown Khrushchev's " i m me diate whereabouts were not known. He was said to have last been seen driving into the Kremlin in his Chaika limousine Thursday. It.was generally assumed he would be given a liberal pension..

He was 11. Death came at 11:05 p.m. PDT (2:05 a.m. EDT) at St. John's Hosjrital in nearby Santa Monica, where he underwent surgery last Tuesday night for removal of a kidney stone. He had been a patient there since Sept. 22. Stanley Musgrove, a spokesman for Porter, said the composer died from complications following the operation. "I was with him a few.min­ utes before he died," Musgrove told United Press International. "He seemed conscious, but not lucid." Also with Porter, were his valets of six years, Henry Burke" and Eric Lindsay. "Mr. Porter always wanted to go that way, just like that, and that's the way he went, suddenly," Burke said. Musgrove said he believed that Porter stipulated in his will that he be cremated and that no funeral services be held. Porter's gay, sophisticated lyrics and hauntingly beautiful 1 melodies became his trademark 1 in the Broadway era thaf'saw the rise of such fellow composers as George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Richard Rodgers, Larry Hart and Oscar Hammersfein.. . • " Many of his gayest successes were written when he was in near-constant pain from the waist down. In 1938, both of his legs were fractured when he was thrown from a horse while riding on the bridle path of Long Island's Piping Rock Club. From then oh, he suffered -from' chronic osteoniylitis and underwent many operations — 21 between 1938 and 1948. . Finally, on April 3, 1958, his right leg was amputated to relieve the pains. At the.age ofj 64, he had to learn to walk on an artificial leg with the aid of two canes. And, still mourning his wife, who died in 1954, he became a virtual recluse for the remainder of his life. Born June 9, 1893, on a large farm near Peru,; Ind., 'Porter never liad to work: His parents were well-to-do and his grandfather eventually left him more than a million dollars. But he labored steadily all his life, and his list,of songs and stage successes was endes. Among the songs: "Wunder- bar," "My Heart Belongs to Daddy," "C'est~Magnifique," "Love For Sale," "I Get a Kick Out of You," "You're the Top," "Just ; One of Those Things," "It's D'Lovely,"'"I've Got You Under My Skin," "In The Still of. the Night," "So in Love," "True Love," "Alez-vous'en, Go Away," "Paris Loves Lovers," "Gypsy in Me," "Miss Otis Regrets," "Get Out of Town," "Lets Do It, Let's Fall in Love," "Always True to You in By JAMES STICKFORD • UPI 'Automotive Editor DETROIT (UPI)—The United Auto Workers Union today went on strike against American Motors Corp. despite a major victory in keeping alive the historic profit sharing contract the company proposed to abandon. Company and union officials negotiated right up to the midnight (CST) strike deadline before the. walkout was called. About 26,000 AMC workers joined 260,000 General Motors workers in the second major strike of the auto industry during the 1964 negotiations. The GM strike is in its-22nd day Douglas (Fraser, director, of the union's AMC department, and Edward - L. Cushman, a company vice president, announced the failure to reach overall agreement at a join* press conference. ' • • . Local Plant Disputes They said that the union ami company had all but wrapped up the national economic contract but had been unable !n reach agreement on other issues, mainly non-e conomic problems and local plant disputes. UAW workers at Grand Rapids, Mich., and Kenosha and Milwaukee, Wis., went on stri!;e at 12:01 a.m. American Motors makes all its cars in Wisconsin and is the state's largest employer. The Michigan workers make appliances. "We've reached agreement on what was the key stumbl:-"? block — progress sharin?." Cushman said. But he said nn details could be revealed until company and union technician.*; polish up the final language. "Unfortunately," Cushman said, "time has run out and we are not operating. We expect that we can move ahead quite promptly on the other knotty issues that confront us." Fraser, referring to Cushman's statement, quipped: "Ed says they're shut down. We always call them strikes in the UAW." Final Details Unfinished. Fraser and Cushman said that all the final details of the national economic agreement had not been worked out. But Fraser said the status of Kelvinator workers in Grand Rapids is the only economic issue of substance that had to be resolved. The union accused the company of offering Kelvi­ nator workers an inadequate contract. . , The company contended that currently Kelvinator workers receive the approximate benefits granted auto workers and those benefits are not competitive with the appliance industry and should be scaled down to the level of that industry. About 3,000 workers- are employed by the Kelvinator Appliance Division. < „,„i «n* i„ -^C ^unbr 'a ^'Moscow. ••-which'.-it.. has • madefy Fashion," "Ace in the ^it ?W TnSrsda? foUowing for more than six months, Hole" and "You 'd Be So Nice cuit Court Thursday touowing, .,,._„^ jw j—, • I to Come Home To." a pre-sentence investigation report on his case.
