-fHURSDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 1986 BLY-THEVILLI (ARK.) COURIER NEWS -BAGEJUREE Stalin Is No Longer a Hero In Eyes of Most Russians By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — Joseph Stalin was such a complete dictator he looked like a Hollywood production. But no one was ever swept • under the rug faster than Stalin after his death in 1953. ' In his lifetime he was treated as a kind of Soviet saint, a combined folk-hero and wonder-man. In death he has disappeared almost into oblivion. Westerners have long wondered why. • • This week his successors, hist —— ~~—~ own hand-picked disciples, have given the answer without mentioning his name: they, got fed up with his one-man show and, apparently, even of his memory. From what they say "BOW they must have despised him. They didn't show it while he was still around, or they wouldn't be around. He was the Communist party. He held the life of every Russian in his hand. Pictures of him, alone or with Lenin and Marx, adorned the country. After his death his pictures began to come do\vn. The Communist - owned Russian press groveled when it mentioned him, which was always. He was glorified with adjectives some- sometimes so ludicrous they seemed chosen with malicious irony. Now his name is hardly mentioned. Answer The answer to all this came Tuesday from the new Communist party boss, Nikita Khrushchev, in a long speech to the party Congress in Moscow. He mentioned Lenin and Marx many times but Stalin only once by name, and then in passing. Khrushchev told his fellow Communists from all over Russia that he and the other new leaders are acting 'as a team. Collective leadership, he called it, referring to the top men on the party's Central Committee. Then he issued a slashing condemnation of Stalin without using his name, explaining why Stalin lisa been shoved into -Communist limbo. Khrushchev said: Cited Growth "Everyone can see how much the role of the. Central Committee as the collective leader of our party has grown in recent years . . . (It) took steps to explain widely the Marxist-Leninist conception, of the individual in history. "It vigorously condemned the cults of the individual as being alien to the spirit of Marxism and Leninism, and making a particular leader a hero and miracle worker. At the same time this belittles the role of the party and the masses." This Was saying that Stalin, in permitting and encouraging his own glorification, had betrayed the spirit of Marx and Lenin. But Khrushchevjvent further, suggesting that .Stalin had even hurt the progress 'of communism. He said: "Currency of the cult of the individual tends to minimize the role of collective leadership in the party, and at times results in serious drawbacks in our way." Dry Run CLINTON, Okla.

Women Buy Cars Like They Buy Hats, Designer Says By DOROTHY ROE Associated Press Women's Editor A woman buys a new car as she does a new hat, says George W. Walker, director of styling "for the streamlined descendants of the Model T. She bases her choice on color, trimming and silhouette. "She doesn't worry about the motor," says Walker, "because she "knows it has to be good. What she wants is a car 'that- will make her neighbor turn green with envy when she sees it going down the street." And of course ' what a woman wants in a car is what the general public gets, continues this astute designer, because women buy 86 pel- cent of all merchandise sold, whether it is a refrigerator, a. man's sports shirt or an automobile. "The revolution in automobile design closely follows the change in women's fashions," says Walker. "Back in the 1920s women hid all their best points in the horrible flapper clothes of the period, and cars were just as bad—built like a buggy without a horse—all straight, square, stubby lines "Then women began, to rediscover the beauty of "curves, and so did automobile designers. When women went into high colors for their old clothes, motor cars followed suit.

It's certainly true that lots of women select a wardrobe to match the family car, and you can even buy such things as fountain pens and sports shrits in two-tone colors coordinated with the colors of new cars. "One thing were sure of — it's styling that sells motor cars and everything else today, from toothpaste to garbage cans. Everything we use from the time we get up in the morning until we go to bed at night is a result of styling—the plumbing in the bathroom, the shaving_ cream tube, the bath mat and towels, the bus you take to work, your typewriter and desk— even your secretary.'
