COURIER NEWS MONDAY, APRIL IS, 195« little Stalin' Chervenkov Faces Crisis in Bulgaria (EDITOR'S NOTE — The Bulgarian Parliament meets today and students of the Stalin desanctlfi- eatloB prcx**i believe Bulgarian Premier Vulko Chervenkov will fact a crisis — perhaps lie ousted — »l ihli m«tln« or loon after. Here U m word picture of Chervenkov and his bloody record. By TOM WHITNET NEW YORK (AP) — Tough Vulko Chervenkov — the Red Wolf of Bulgaria — got to th« top by faithfully executing Stalin's orders and Stalin's opponents. Hii career took him from underground work in Bulgaria 10 Moscow for nearly 20 years and then back to Bulgaria in the wake of the Soviet army. There he rose to be a little Stalin, after death and execution removed his leading competitors. Chervenkov — his first name m«ani Wolf—achieved fame by or- ganlting the bombing in 1925 of Resurrection Cathedral in Sofia- killing 160 people. The bomb was Intended for Tsar Boris but Boris ; wasn't there. Chervenkov had to; leave for Moscow. Chervenkov also played the leading role in the liquidation of Bulgarian Communist leader Traicho Rostov in 1949 as a "Titoist." While Chervenkov sat out in Moscow the years of severe repres- •ion from 1925 to 1944, Kosvot had led the Bulgarian underground in- ilde the country. Father Army Captain Chervenkov could almost serve as the prototype of a Moscow-bred foreign Communist leader accustomed to carry out without question the orders and caprices of the Kremlin. He was born 5 years ago in a middle class Bulgarian family. His, fahter was an army captain. He j became involved in Communist! active when he was in high j •chool and joined the party before he was 20. In 1923 he became secretary of the Bulgarian Young Communist League. After his unsuccessful attempt j to kill Tsar Boris, Chervenkov went to military school in Moscow. He graduated subsequently from the Marx-Engels-Lenin Institute in the Soviet capital, worked on its staff, and in 1937 became [ one of, its directors . ' He was an Intimate of the Bui' garian Communist leader In exile Oeorgi Dimitrov, who gained bit fame by his successful self defense at the Reichstag fire trial In Hitler's Germany. Dimitrov be carne chief of the Comintern Chervenkov married DImitrov's Bister. From 1931 to 1941 he worked in the party educational section of the executive committee ; of the Comintern. During the war, he directed the Bulgarian rndio etation in Moscow. When he returned to Bulgaria in 1044 he was made a member of the Bulgarian Communist party Politburo. In 1945 he became head of the agitation and propaganda TROUBLE - SHOOTER-A British sentry stanclf guard on the roof of a building in Nicosia, Cyprus, alert for any sign of anti-British demonstration.

In 1949 after Dimitrov, then premier, died, Chervenkov became a deputy premier. Remained in Power After Kostov was liquidated, Chervenov was one of the two top men in the country. When the other, Premier Vastly Kolarov, died In early 1950, Chervenkov became both premier and secretary general of the Bulgarian Communist party. Chervenkov remained In power after Stalin's death. It was not till early 1954 that he lost one of his two jobs — the post as secretary general or the Communist party. He remained premier. There have been many signs that Chervenkov \s in trouble. The Bulgarian Communist Party Central Committee recently charged he was practicing 'the personality cult"—Stalinism. As a matter of fact, Chervenkov tried to be more Stalinist than Stanlin himself. He ruled with an iron hand and aroused the hate oi many Bulgarians by his subvervi- ence to Moscow. 2 State Schools Receive Grant NEW YORK Wi— The fund for the Advancement of Education Saturday announced granta to 34 colleges and universities totaling $501,615.
