MOSCOW, Dec. 21. (AP)—Russian leaders hailed Joseph Stalin on his 70th birLhchiy loday with a massive celebration, and the Soviet leadership took the occasion to renew Russian chums that Communism and capitalism can exist together in peace. Georgi Malenkov, deputy prime mini.stcr and considered close to Stalin, sounded the peace keynote In Pravda, the official newspaper of the Communist Party, by laying hea- Y. stress on previous statements by the prime minister that, ponc-c was possible between the two days of life. ^ At the same time, the peace Ui^nac .Wfti Unclfcii ur j bi ^ s * u^ttAi ment of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet that It had established, in the prime minister's honor, an international Stalin peace pvize to be nnrarrind PBC!I your on his Birthday, beginniiK "^xl December.

While Malenkov spoke of peace, Molotov lashed out against the United States and Britain, charging them with preparing for a new war. and with planning world domination '"with the help of any aggressive means, including the atom bomb." The capitol was lavishly decorated for the birthday celebration. The main building fronts were burdened with huge portraits of t'he Soviet leader. Red bunting and brilliant electric displays added color to the scene. The holiday spirit was everywhere. Tito's Days "Numbered" Foreign delegations continued to arrive for tiic celebrations. Foreign Minister Andrei Y. Vishinsky who has just returned from the United Nations meetings in New York will entertain visitors at a reception tonight.

Since no one oul.side the Kremlin has any facls on iha-:e pointe, the answers to these nnd similar questions have about the weight of informed guesses—but guesses made by officials who are long-time students of Soviet politics. The current belief among these officials Ls that when Stalin passes out of the picture his official position of leadership may be occupied by V. M. Molotov. the former premier and foreign minister. They, think tiiat his real power may be shared by Molotov with at least two other members of the Politburo, Slrii ss lc for Power Likely When that time comes, the" belief here is that Russian policy, both internal and external, will remain unchanged while a struggle for absolute personal power goes on among the men who initially divide Stalin's authority. party responded warmly lo SanUi as he distributed toys, fruit. nut,s and candy to the group.
