PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS MONDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 194< HUS Sid's Zhdanov With Stalin the Stalin's Successor Believed Chosen To Avoid Bloody Scramble For Power By TOM' WOLF , NEA Service .Stiff Correspondent Molotov's machinations - make headlines, but the premier-foreign commissar is not second man in the Soviet. If Stalin has named his successor there is little doubt about the chosen one. He is stocky, round-faced, •- little-known Andre Alexandrpvitch Zhdanov. Although, for ; obvious "reasons, it has never been confirmed by' the Kremlin, there is good reason to believe that in 1933 Russia's powerful Politbureau ruled Stalin must select his successor. The moody •• scramble' for power ' v ihttt iollowed Lenin's death would .make the'ruling a: logical one. 'Without such a safeguard no man of position, could place much value on "his lite', should Stalin die suddenly. .•••'• If such a law does in fact exist, high-placed- Russians believe their enigmatic boss has decided to pass Ills mailed fist of''authority over 170' millions to the 43-year-old Zhdanov. 'HELPED ALONG BY ASSASSIN'S HAND Until six " years ago, Zhdanov lived in the -comparative obscurity surrounding many minor Commu- - nisi Party officials. He had been horn into an. elementary school teacher's family in Tver, between St. Petersburg and Moscow. He went to Moscow's Agricultural School, was attracted to the Bolshevists, soon quit school to agitate against the Czar. . Unimpressive in appearance, being rather short and pudgy, Zhdanov had two very, useful qualities for the Bolshevists: he was a great organizer and an elo- . quenty spell-binding speaker After the O:tober revolution he • was 'assigned to organize a small west Siberian district for the party Gradually' he rose through the •parly ranks, but it was an assas- • sin's hand that put Zhdanov on the road to' his present, teacher's-pet position. •„'•-'. " When, v in 1934, Stalin's friend, •adviser, and favorite, Sergei Kirov, party secretary • for / the Leningrad district, was murdered, Zhdanov was chosen to take his place. As secretary -of this important labor' district* Zhdanov became s secretary",of the powerful Centra! Committee of the Communist Party. Today he has moved, up to - the second secretaryship. As first secretary, Stalin rules Russia. An ardent nationalist, Zhdanov soon used his Leningrad position to agitate against the Baltic states near " his district. As early as 1936-he'urged"the All Union Con' grass to annex Finland nncl the Baltic states. FINNISH FIGHT WAS "HIS WAR" As secretary of Leningrad Zhda- nov ' formulated the "workers' demands" for bases in the Gulf of Finland that led to the Finnish "* war. Later,, as the state-controlled ,'praVda said: "Comrade Zhdanov was entrusted with the organiza- . tioiv of our front in the war with Finland." ' It was "his war" and upon its successful conclusion he was flooded with congratulatory telegrams and letters.
