Two Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Koniev New Military Spokesman in Russia Editors Note: Marshal of the Soviet Union Ivan Koniev and the 6,000,000 troops of the Warsaw Pact armies he commands are one of the principal heartaches the NATO power leaders will discuss at this week's summit meeting In Paris. The following "Who's In Tie News" on Koniev has been prepared by the United Press in connection with the Paris meeting. Marshal Ivan Stepanovich, Ko- niev; since the removal of Marshal George Zhukov from the Soviet hierarchy Last October, has emerged as the leading military spokesman in Russia. It was he who denounced Zhu- kov, and observers had wioticed some months ago he appeared to have hitched his wagon to the star of party boss Nikita Khrushchev. Koniev joined the Cr,ar's army, became a Bolshevik in 1918. His military ability and his political reliability and loyalty made possible his climb up the military ladder which brought him to the rank of the general at the outbreak of war in 1940. His masterly planning brought him victory after victoy. He halted Hitler's until-then invincible tank commander General Heinz Guderian. The end of the war found Koniev co-victor of Berlin with Zhukw and liberator af Prague. By this time he was a marshal. Koniev was the lirst Soviet commander of the Russian zone of Austria, and of Hungary and Czechosloviikia. General Mark Clark of the U.S. Army said' of him at the time "we get the finest cooperation from Marshal Koniev." Bullet-headed, pudgy, he carries rows of medals and decorations on his barrel-shaped chest, he has close cropped hair. Koniev was appointed to the command of the Warsaw Pact forces in May 1955, when the pact, as one Western observer then said, "put a juridical stamp of approval on a de facto condition— the merging of all the forces of the eight (East European) countries." Koniev commands, apart from Soviet troops, the forces of Al bania, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, East-'Germany, Hungary, Poland and Romania. He was barn Dec. 27, 1897 in the village of Ladeino northwest of Korov in Russia, He went IJD th« .village school briefly and worked as a lumberjack before he went into the Cznr's army.. Politically, he is a member of the central committee of the Soviet Communist Party, and experts have speculated h- brought his battlefield maxim into the fights within the party. It is, "Decide what the enemy expects of you, then do the opposite." local Man Arrested On Hit-Run Charge .Tames Hart, 22, of 1228 Wrigh 1 street, was arrested Sunday after noon by city police for leaving the scene of a property damage accl dent.

Two Fight- As Rangers Beat Wings By UNITED PRESS Two fist-fights marked the New York Bankers' 4-2 victory over the Detroit Tied Wir.gs Sunday night in Madison Square Garden. In the first brawl, goalie Terry ( Sawchuk of Detroit and centerj dorf, Bob Voigts • became one of i Washington sees it, and no chance Red Sullivan of the Rangers each' the best tackles ever at.

League-leading Montreal defeated Chicago, 2-0, .with Bollard St. Laurent- and John Marshall scoring for the Canadiens. Jacques Plante turned aside 13 shots in, registering the shutout for Montreal. Toronto climbed into a third- place tie with Boston by .beating the Bruins, 3-1. ' BOB VOIGTS As a player under Lynn Wai- Washington gossips are wonder- ng whether the close friendship >etvveen President Eisenhower and Iherman Adams, his assistant, may have cooled. When Eisenhower shook hands with well-wishers )ofore he flew to Paris Friday, Adams got the quickest handshake of- all. In contrast, Eisenhower had a few words to say to his 'old 'riend Gen. Alfred M. Gruenther and quite a few more for Vice President Richard M. Nixon. APPOINTMENT Tokyo reports that it will be noj surprise if Adm. Arthur W. Rad-' ford, former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, is given a high dip-l lomatic post soon, The word in Tokyo is that it's possible he may •be named ambassador to The Philippines if the present envoy, Charles E. Bohlen, decides to retire. Alternatively, Radford .might be appointed to some other Southeast Asian ally. Tokyo says some of them (members of the Southeast Asia Treaty Organization are feeling neglected. Naming of an ambassador of Radford's standing would be a morale-booster. HOOPLA There's likely to be a lot of political hoopla but little action on farm legislation next i-ar. Wash; ington says that about all Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson will get from Congress — besides arguments — is extension ol the law which permits the sale of surplus foods abroad. Benson stands little chance of winning approval of a proposal to retire whole farms from production, as new Russian telescope will be used to map temperatures across the surface of the sun. The Russians want to find out the connection between sun spots and communications difficulties and weather changes on earth. This information would be of great military value as regards radio control of space missiles and long-range weather prediction. TROUBLE Intelligence reports say that the North Korean Communists are experiencing increasing difficulties in keeping farmers under control. Signs of unrest are mounting and the farmers are showing more resistance to Communist controls. A big crackdown is in prospect.
