J^RIPAY. MAY 9, 1952 In tht Satellites — JLTTHEVILLB (ASK.) COtntTER NEWS Bulgarians Know They Have One Real Boss: Joe Stalin In Bulgaria, the Communists are In the saddle as (hey are in all the Satellites of Europe, hut here, loo, one Communist doesn't know whether to trust another. Moscow can only lighten the serous a litlle tighter. Here is the fifth anil last of a series on the Satellites, written by William L,. Ryan after ir'-1<H of Interviews in 10 countries. By WILLIAM L. HYAN- Al' Foreign news Analyst Chervenkov?... chankov? Pan- chevsky?... There's a lot of guessing about who is the real boss of the Communists in Bulgaria. But the Bulgarian people don't guess. They know there is only one boss, and his name is Stalin. In Bulgaria, most sovietlzed of all the captive countries of Europe the Premier acts like a vest pocket edition of the dictator in Moscow But Premier Vulko Chervenkov must be uneasy. He may be on his way out. As in other cr.ptive countries, there is a struggle going on at the top in Bulgaria. Jfany European sources express belief that Cher-! venkov, 50-year-old 'professional Communist with Moscow training, is simply a figurehead. The power behind the scenes, they say. is \ Geoi'Si Chanfcov. a deputy prime! mnister — and behind him, the Russians. Chervenkov, rough - and - tumble 1 Communist veteran of many jails since he joined the party in 1919 as a youngster, is related by marriage to the late Georgi Dimitrov the old Bolshevik Bulgarian Premier who went to Moscow for a "cure" and never returned. Today, Dimitrov's followers are dropping by the wayside, one by one. Another show trial may not be far off. Recently there has been a severe purge of Cabinet functionaries and "high officials. Chankov may be behind this or possibly the man behind it all is Peter Panchevsky, Moscow's viceroy who, as defense minister, runs the Bulgarian Army. He is a Soviet general. , All the old intelligentsia of the party is being weeded out. This means the Dimitrov people. They are disappearing- in favor of the Soviet fanatics. All the moderates are gone. While Moscow tightens the screws, the Bulgarian people find themselves worse off every day. Their economy is completely ruled by the Soviet Union. Farmers' wheat in that agricultural country is seized by the government at low prices. Bread is a government monopoly, retailed at high prices and tremendous I profit. I Wherever there is resistance to | collective farming, the militia is ' busy. In some instances the militia surrounds a village, arrests the citizens, loads them into cattle cars and transports them to the provinces for forced labor. | The split between the people and,<l the party widens daily. ^ Deportations of lar»e numbers of people are reported beginning anew, particularly from areas near the western and southern frontiers. Many non-Communists are bein«- expelled from big cities to make room for industrial workers. The former peasant Premier of Bui Ban a, c, corgi M. Dimitrov—no relation to thee Communist Dimitr —predicts that many Communists, fearing the peasants, will "try to adapt themselves to the peasant resistance because of their fears of tomorrow." Dimitrov lives in exile in the United States and is secretary genera! of the International Peasant Union. He says: "Even some of the Communists believe in our final victory. I fee! strongly (hat some day we will go back, that we will e et together and bmld up a real democracy of independent people in full co-operation with our neighbors, looking forward to the day when the Eastern and Central European peoples can come to a rea i federation."
