EISENHOWER (Continued from Page 1) nrannnn rf.irm) Plan, socialized medicine and bigger nnd more centralized government as 1U only solution lo some of the pressing problems (hat confront America today. "The general will -».y that some Koals on which Americans today aro n greed — employment ami good wages, adequate security for old age, better education, hotter hoiMing. protection ol the rights of labor, protection of the right to earn and save, stable agriculture — can be won only U America a course squarely down the middle, rejecting both the extreme right anrf extreme left." Vandenberp's reference to a middh'-jrround course and rejection of both the extreme right nnd left recalled advice given to Eisenhower recently by Republican Gov. Val Peterson of Nebraska. Peterson told newsmen at the time that he had advised the genera] that the "great middle ground of America" '.vas where the votes are. He said Eisenhower ought to ignore the extremes. Elsenhower himself tolti a group of prominent Republican women yesterday Hint his goal is to in! sure peace and progress for Arner| 3r::j nnd to prevr-nt the "r. jr>G.n<£ I p;irnlyKis of any kind of 'ism." RUSSIA (Continued from Pngc II between sessions." The party secretariat, however, remains under the new statutes. Western observers here considered the meeting would be the, most important held In the Soviet Union since the end of World War II. In Western capitals officials and observers also saw the scheduling of the party Congress as a major event, though they were reluctant to Immediately speculate exactly what it might mean. For sometime Westerners have considered that the failure of the Soviet Communists to call a party convention indicated possible weaknesses in the party structure at home. May Feel Stronjre Today's announcement could mean that Russia's Communist rulers now feel they- are strongly enough entrenched to face the [Party members. The Communist Congress was announced in a decree of the party's Centra! Committee pun- lished today in all Moscow newspapers over the name of Prime I Minister Josef Stalin, the' com- |m^'eo's general secretary. j The announcement included di- rrT.:ve:; :!:c, congress will be asked i to approve for the new. fifth five- year economic plan. This, the par- ly tecreo «atd, would cover the years 1951 through 1056. Tfio directives, which are expected to be the basis of the new economic goals the Soviet government will set, call for total Soviet industrial production to increase 12 per cent annually. By the end of 1855, total output would be 00 per cent greater than in 1950. (As with previous Soviet economic announcements, today's pronouncement dealt only with percentages. The proposed directive gave no tonnages or other production quantities.) Prime Minister Stalin presumably will attend the party congress and It was considered possible he might make one of his rare "public addresses to the meeting. Stalin was the main speaker when-the party congress met last in 1039. Russia Would "Fool" Us WASHINGTON </PJ _ American diplomats said today that Russia's move to abolish the Politburo is' aimed at fooling outsiders as well as Russian citizens into believing the Communist party setup is being democratized. Experts familiar with Soviet affairs viewed the call for a Communist Parly Congress—the first in | 13 years—and the announcement, of! a new five-year production plan asj a combination of (a) propaganda [ ":id tb) Communist party necessi- i y. ' The word "Politburo." these of- i flclals noted, has become i -|™_ word for dictatorship «very lnsld« Russia. These diplomats said, too, that the Moscow announcement showg that Oeorel Mnlenkov ranks os a likely successor to Josef Stalin M the Russian premier. They pointed to the fact that Malenkov, 50-year-old Politburo member, has been selected to read the main report and eald thli shows he is firmly entrenched i» the Communist hierarchy. Stalin gave this report personally at the two previous Community Party Congress gatherings in 1034 and 1939.
