The Reds, tliev say, will keep up their present "soft" approach to the enslaved satellite.'; and the West, but their long-ranse aim still is to weaken and then destroy the West. Vienna diplomats, described by recent visitor Adlai Stevenson as some, of the best informed experts outside Russia, said Beria's arrest is important, but that it is only one move in a inr more significant and dangerous Kremlin same. '"The new Russian rulers are still out to win the world," said one high-ranking Western observer. "The soft look is a temporary look to deceive two groups of people— the Western Powers and the enslaved masses of communism. Beria's arrest is part of this plan. be no change in the policy of trying to win friends by niceness: 1. Htmiary's Communist leader, former Premier Matyas Rakosi, announced Saturday night that there is to be no let-up in the new velvet glove policy toward Hungarian workers. Charges "Obstruction" 2 Moscow's Communist party newspaper Pvnvda declared that Beria had obstructed agricultural plans designed to improve the food situation and had failed to remedy legal injustices. 3. The Soviets ended martial law in East Berlin. •1. Communist Bulgaria agreed with Yugoslavia to set up a mixed commission to investigate border incidents. All of these developments occurred after announcement of Beria's arrest.

None of these events, the diplomats here believe, would have taken place had Russian Premier Georgi Malenkov any plans lor a revision of the new tactics that followed Stalin's death. Diplomats here believe that Sena's arrest does show signs of a basic struggle for power in the Kremlin. But, like other onetime Russian powers, he now apparently is being used as a scapegoat for all the errors and ruthlesnes of the Stalin regime. They recall that several years ago. Gen. Walter Bedell Smith, while U. S. ambassador to Moscow, termed Malenkov a moderate and Beria an anti-Western, Stalin man. This is contrary to some speculation that has followed Beri arrest. "New Look" With Yugoslavia's Marshal Tito, the diplomats here agree that Malenkov and presumably Foreign addod. And they say that Russia's Minister V.

Thousands of Russian soldiers have seen the relative wealth of the West, the new dictatorship needs to secure its position, and the satehtes ave threatened by unrest. But they describe this as a tactical, short-term goal. To reach that goal, the Kremlin must counter certain memories of Stalin and Beria and their policies by promising less police terror, more comforts and more food. In this way, the new Kremlin rulers may extract greater production and work toward their final strategic aim. That aim. it is agreed here, still is Russian economic and political dominance of the world.
