._ TUESDAY, MARCH 20, 195(5 BLYTHEVILI.E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Attacks on Stalin Could Cause Some Eyebrow Raising in Soviet By TOM WHITNEY NEW YORK (AP) — One question raised in Russian minds by Nikita Khrushchev's denunciation of Stalin is what the present Communist boss and his Kr.emlin colleagues were doing while Stalin terrorized the nation. The' political future of the pres-| ent Soviet leaders quite possibly depends on the skill with which they answer this—and on the ultimate conclusion which Soviet citizens reach. Khrushchev has already made an effort to sidestep this question by declaring that he and Stalin's -other subordinates-were, in fear of their lives. He says-they never knew where the next blow was; going to fall, never knew when they went in to see Stalin whether they'd come out alive But it'smot certain that the Russian people will accept tills as-n completely satisfactory explanation. ' A key question is whether Soviet citizens may not. as a result of the revelations of Stalin's crimes | and blunders, come to a more orj less unanimous conclusion that] they'd prefer to be ruled by people less intimately associated with the did dictator. Clearly it is quite a shock for many Russians to be told that the sacrifices of Stalin's purges and much of the sacrifice of the war' itself were unnecessary, that they were extorted by an evil power-mad tyrant to satisfy his psy- choses. And if they go on from this to ask themselves who, aside -from the executed Lavrenty B e r i a, helped Stalin the 'most, then a state of mind may have been created which will g:ve opportunities to ambitious younger men to the Communist party leadership whose hands were not dirtied by close personal, collaboration with the ex-hero. Or perhaps Russians inside and outside - the Communist party will begin to look to Soviet army leaders for unsullied non-Stalinist guidance. : Never has the Soviet army's star stood so high. Marshal Georgi Zhukov and other Red army leaders, as most Russians understand things, did" not do Stalin's dirty work. That was the job of such party leaders as Khrushchev. Georgi Malenkov, V. M. Molotov. Nikolai Bulganiii, Anastas Miko- yan and the rest of Stalin's Politburo. It was the army which suffered from Stalin's despotism. It was 5,000 veteran officers of the army led by Marshal Mikhail Tuk- hachevsky who were murdered by Stalin.
