TAWt.) COTOKR OTBWi TOE9PAY, APRIL fT, 1W* Khrushchev May Be Moving In as Top Power in Russia YORK (AP) S. Kfccuschev has been singled •*t again for an unusual honor, inSieatfflg his powerful po- fitioa in the Soviet setup. Two outstanding Soviet leaders gtwe addresses—botfe important— in Moscow yesterday. One speech woe delivered by Premier Georg-i Ifalenfcov, the other by. Khrushchev, first secretary of the Com- nwust party's Central Committee. Malenkov's speech attracted more attention in the outside world —because he spoke first and because he mentioned the important wbject of atomic weapons. But Malenkov addressed the house- of the Soviet Parliament which usually is considered the junior chamber, the Council of Nationalities. Kfarushchev spoke later to the | CowieM of the Union, considered to be the senior house." It is the chamber of which Khrushchev and Malenkov are members and to which Stalin belonged. Khrushchev's speaking spot would seem to carry the greater prestige. All the Russian party and government leaders present at these meetings will be quick to catch the hint. lective leadership" — dictatorship by committee rather by one man- will last -long. And nerht now they are bound to be thinking maybe Nikita Khrushchev will turn out to be the next "khozyam"—the boss. M th« last meeting of the Supreme Soviet, last August, only Malenkov gave a keynote address. That was when he announced Russia had the hydrogen bomb. But this position as co-keynote speaker in the Supreme Soviet is not the only sign leading foreign specialists to wonder whether Khrushchev now does not have as much or perhaps more power than Malenkov. A few days ago the party secretary celebrated his 60th birthday to front-page attention in the Soviet Press. For the anniversary he was given a little more in the way of orders and decorations than other Kremlin bigwigs received on their decade milestones. Of still more importance was the subsequent publication of messages from Communist party leaders in the Soviet satellites congratulating Khrushchev. They were the kind , of adulatory "happy birthdays" Stalin used to get. These are tne kind of signs JHansen, was found guilty in a two- Soviet Spy Convicted In Norway VARDO, Norway.

Jury Convicts Four Persons For Sheltering Fugitive Red SAN FRANCISCO M*—A federal court jury last night convicted three men and a woman of sheltering a fugitive Communist leader. The four. Mrs. Shirley Kremen. 22: Sam'uel I. Coleman. 43; Carl Ross, 41: and Sidney Steinberg. 39, heard the verdict with no show of emotion. All were found guilty on two counts of harboring Robert Thompson, a Communist party chieftain, after he disappeared in 1951 following his conviction in New York Of conspiring to advocate overthrow of the U. S. government. Arrested by the FBI in a Sierra hideout last August with the four convicted yesterday. Thompson is serving a term in Atlanta federal prison. Mrs. Kremen. Coleman and Ross also were found guilty of harboring Steinberg, himself a fugitive from a New York indictment charging conspiracy to advocate overthrow of the government. The three face maximum prison sentences of 11 years and fines of S15.000 each. Steinberg faces a maximum sentence of 10 years and a maximum fine of $15.000. There was no indication whether _ they would appeal. Judge Louis E. Goodman canceled bail for all four and ordered them to jail. He will hear motions for a new trial and pass sentence Monday. The jury deliberated 9Hj hours. A fifth defendant, Mrs. Patricia Blau, was given a directed verdict of acquittal last week by Judge Goodman, who said the evidence against her was insufficient. | Mrs. Blau was arrested on a | California highway hours after ; Thompson and the convicted four were picked up together at the nuun.ain cabin. j Steinberg, a naturalized Lithua- j nian, is a former national secre- \ tary of the Communist party. Ross, a native of Michigan, is a former secretary of the Communist par- j ty in Minnesota. Coleman, a na- | tive New Yorker , is a former member of the Communist education department in New York. Mrs. Kremen. a former Los Angeles City College student, was described by the FBI as having Communist affiliations. identity papers. The Hansen trial was the first j of a. series of related espionage j cases scheduled to be heard in j Oslo and in the northern province j of Finnmark. which borders on the | Soviet Union.

Gregori F. Pavlov, who fled ] to Norway and asked for political , asylum. ' The court said it gave Hansen a comparatively light sentence ! "because available evidence indi- j cated that the convicted had not ' been able to carry through his j assignment in Norway and had j abandoned his efforts after his i intelligence assignment proved j impracticable."
