BIOSSAT AND CROMLEY IN WASHINGTON Sterner Life Due in Soviet As Brezhnev Grips Reins JL By RAY CROMLEY Washington Correspondent Newspaper Enterprise Assn. WASHINGTON (NEA) This analysis of current trends in Soviet Russia has been compiled by this reporter from several dozen reports by Kremlin watchers in Italy, France, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg and Scandinavia: The latest reorganization of i the top Kremlin echelons prac- Itically signifies "the end of col- . lective leadership."

Rspee was down to hearts and had to lead to dummy's king to give Edgar the contract trick. two declarers played and made three no - trump from the North seat when the queen of clubs was opened. One other South made four spades when West was kind enough to open a heart for him. The other four spade declarers failed to discover the throw • in play and went down one. Edgar's fine play only represented a three IMP gain bul the swing was 10 Internationa Match Points since he would i have lost seven if he had gone I down. er. Now that Brezhnev has consolidated his power, he is attempting to control the growing tendency toward "liberalism" in speech and thought by means of harder political pressure. The principle of subordination to the party is being more rig- j idly -applied. Party discipline is being ih- •tensfied. Committees for party control are to play a greater role. Access to the party has been made more difficult. Party rules are being made more stringent. There are contradictions in these new moves. Centralized economic planning is being intensified while at the same time the initiatve and self-relarice of local workers and managers is supposed to be improved. A call has been mads for increased worker participation in decisions in industry and agriculture but at the same time tougher crackdowns are being instituted against those who disagree with the party line. As one European analyst puts it, the new Kremlin line "is a strange and grotesque attempt by the Soviet leadership to continue with economic measures the necessary conversion to a modern industrial society on the one hand and to prevent the social, political and spiritual effects of such a conversion on the other." As a result, economic targets are not being attained. Though Soviet 1 e a d e r s are seeking solutions by shifts in industry and agriculture, say the Kremlinologists, "the (present) Soviet crisis is," as one puts it, "above all, political.

The press has already made the first soundings in this direction; there has been cautious talk about a certain 're-evaluation' of Stalin." The result, as predicted almost uniformly by the Kremlin watchers: A sterner and more disciplined life within the Soviet Union insofar as the Kremlin can enforce it, with heavier crackdowns en those who protest.

Brandstadt, M.D. 0 — My son and daughter, both past 20, have hereditary liters' he will answer letters of general interest in future columns. Sir Arthur ConOn Doyle's was not allowed to eat liver. What could be the reason for this? A — Liver is of value chiefly in the treatment of pernicious anemia. H is of limited value in other forms of the disease and even in pernicious anemia it has been largely replaced by injections of vitamin B-12. The reason for not allowing liver in your diet might be a tendency toward gout. Q — What is the treatment of apalstic anemia? A — In aplastic anemia the low red blood cell count is caused by a failure of the marrow to produce new red cells fast enough to replace those that wear out. Iron preparations are given to simulate red cell production. Severe cases require transfusions. Cure is possible only if the cause — leukemis, bone marrow tumors or diseases of the spleen — can be found and removed. Q - What is hypochromic anemia? Can it be cured? A — In hypochromic anemia the red blood cells are smaller and fewer than normal and are lacking in normal iron content. It cari be cured by supplying iron and by finding and checking the source of the chronic itood loss, such as bleeding piles or stomach or intestinal bleeding due to large dally doses of aspirin or ether catises. spheroeytosis which them to have hemolytic anemia, jlron Curtain.

A — Fibrillation (rapid inef- auricles) may be due to an overactive thyroid, rheumatic heart disease or coronary artery disease — all potentially serious conditions. Quinidine is an old standby that is still widely used. In addition to treating the cause, an electric pacemaker may be advisable. Q — What is meant by lyn- cope on an arteriosclerotic basis?
