300 in Labor Camps, Mental Institutions— Kremlin Muzzles Dissidents; Deaf Ear to Soviet Free-thinkers By LEON DENNEN -;[NEA Foreign Nev/s Analyst) .l .NEW YORK - The Kremlin's top man, Leonid Brezhnev, urgently needs to put his house m order to cope with the growing assertiveness of R u s s i a ; s dissidents who are stepping up .tHeir quest for "socialism with £ human face." I.' This the Soviet leaders are niow attempting to do by muz- jzung men like Aleksandr Sol­ zhenitsyn, who won the 1970 No- ! bel P r i z e for Literature, and other dissident writers, scientists and Red army officers. One of the more significant facts to emerge from a study of Russia's underground press is the support given by officers of the armed forces to Solzhenitsyn's campaign against re-Stalinization. Two lugh ranking officers — former Gen. Grigorenko and Col. Altunian — now languish in mental institutions because they dared advocate civil rights in Russia. A third, Gennadi Gavrilov of the Baltic fleet, recently was executed in the Soviet Republic of Estonia. Gavrilov was charged with belonging to a group of officers who organized a secret movement known as "Democrats of Russia, the Ukraine and Baltic states." A copy of the movement's Times Herald, Carroll, la. Wednesday, Nov. 4, 1970 program that reached the West calls for the restoration ol democracy in Russia, self-determination for Ukrainians, Jews, Baits, Tartars and other nationalities that comprise the Soviet Union — and friendship with the United States. Belatedly, Brezhnev even unveiled a marble bust of Stalin at his grave. It is the Kremlin's latest and most symbolic step to rehabilitate the terrorist rule of the dictator who died 17 years ago. But can Brezhnev turn back the clock of history? There iis evidence that many Russians, including members of the Communist elite, question the value of Marxist-Leninist rigidity in modem technological society. According to the "Chronicle of Current Events," Russia's popular underground newspaper, some 300 dissidents are imprisoned in forced labor camps ruled by the KGB, the K r e m I i n's secret police. Scores are jailed in, mental institutions. In a letter of protest to the Kremlin, Solzhenitsyn had the courage to condemn the practice of "incarcerating freethinking and healthy people in madhouses." He called it "spiritual murder" and a "variant of Hitler's gas chambers." In awarding him the Nobel Prize, the Swedish Academy praised Solzhenitsyn for "the ethical force with which he has pursued the indispensable tradition" of Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, Boris Pasternak and other great Russian writers. His literary masterpieces like "The First Circle" and "The Cancer Ward" which realistically depict life under Stalin's terror are baned in his homeland. But the ailing 52-year-old Sol zhenitsyn, though hounded by the Kremlin's literary bureaucrats, is not a prophet without honor in his country. Typewritten copies of his novels are read secretly by young Russians who venerate Solzhenitsyn as another Tolstoy — "the only living classic in Russia." Massachusetts' Patriot's Day, observed April 19, commemorates the Battle of Lexington.
