TUESDAY, APRIL 7, 1953 (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIV1 Stalin's Body May Require Frequent Treatment if it Is to Be Preserved Long By JOHN R. MORRIS AP Staff Writer Joseph Stalin's body may require periodic injections and treatment If It is to be preserved Indefinitely.

The Russians have indicated they hope to save their late lender's remains for posterity, as they did the body of Lenin, the first great and revered lender 'of Soviet communism. Pour days after Stalin's death March 5, his body was placed in a mausoleum next to the remains of Lenin, which had been under glass through 29 years of public veneration. The red marble tomb, just beyond the frowning brick waljs of Moscow's Kremlin, currently is closed to the public. Eckels, who is president of the Eckels College of Mortuary Science, Inc., said: 'If it can be assumed that Stalin's remains were similarly prepared with the ultimate aim being permanent preservation as were Lenin's remains, supplementary injections of embalming fluid might be necessary." Embalmers generally agree a similar system was used on Stalin as on Lenin. What was it? Tissues Transformed An internationally'known authority on formaldehyde, the late ames A. Branegan of Philadelphia, was given special permission to examine Lenin's body in 1932, eight years after he died. Branegan found the body so thoroughly impregnated with formaldehyde solution—a disinfectant used in almost all embalming— that the body tissues were completely transformed to a synthetic resin. Branegnn concluded the body would remain intact indefinitely. The transformation, he said, completely changed the chemical composition of Lenin's body, but allowed it to keep its original appearance. How was it done? Branegan said the body was injected with a strong solution of formaldehyde tempered by control chemicals which aided in distribution of the solution through the body tissues. In the U. S., embalmers usually stress returning the body to a lifelike appearance rather than indefinite preservation. Under these conditions, the average embalmed body would become unrecognizable after a decade.

(IP) — An FBI agent told a police conference recently that television and radio programs that depict police officers as "stupid cops" are "pretty close to being a crime." Edward J. Powers, special agent in charge of FBI division at Albany, N. Y., says the law enforcement pro- 'ession has failed to achieve an effective public relations program. "If we had accomplished our objective in this respect, certainly the American public would not tolerate television and radio programs which depict police officers as stupid cops, while the 'private eye' is presented as an intelligent visionary who can readily solve any complicated crlm- nal case."
