f AW TWELVE JJJL.I. Despite Discontent Stirring In Russia, Revolt Not Likely By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP) — In idle moments over their coffee men here in Washington hav« wondered what kind of celebration there would be in this country if the Russian people suddenly overthrew their Communist masters. There was dancing in the streets after World Wars I and U. Ther« might be again, after a Russian revolution. In a foreword, the committee» chairman, Sen. Wiley, Wisconsin Republican, added his own word of caution against hope in this country that a revolution is ready to pop In Russia. 'Because these tensions exist," to Hit ntturnl American! should bop« lor th« day, even though they h»v« no assurances that In th foreseetble future the Russian am satellite people* wUl destroy thei: Red overlordi. CMorge Kennan, former Ameri ean ambassador to Moscow and on* of this country's top authorities on Russia, predicts a revolution there. But when? The most he can do tor that question is cay: "Even tually." "Plainly," he said this month "the edifice of Soviet power faced today with severe strains and crl»ls.". That there are deep discontents within the Soviet orbit was shown this summer by the riots In the MtollltM and could be perceived In Premier Melenkov's attempt to •oothe the Russian people with promiMi of better living stand- ardi. Further Indication of this stress hai Just been supplied by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee In > 93-page study, prepared by Ruaslan experts at the Library of Congress, called "Tensions Within the Soviet Union." 1W» study, bringing up to date • similar one made In 1951, covers a wide field of Russian living. Its purpose was to round up evidence ef strains and resentments built up among the Russian people against the Communists. Caution Urged But the study cautions against atarry • eyed optimism that the Kremlin is going to topple coon. It says: "An Illusion against which one •hould be on guard considering the tensions within the Soviet Union Is the conclusion that because dissatisfaction exists in Russia, therefore an armed and organized revolt Is imminent there. "It Is even debatable that those who are dissatisfied would necessarily dlsaflect from the Soviet Union and Its Communist regime In case of a military showdown with the West, particularly If no well-thought-out guidance and encouragement are given the dissenting elements from outside." What kind of encouragement? At this point the study stops. It offers no solutions of Its own, since that was not the purpose of the study. he said, "does not mean that the Russian people are ready to spring to arms in revolt." But while the study talked of giving "well-thought-out guidance and encouragement" to the "dissenting elements from outside," Kennnn said the United States should pursue a hands-off policy toward Russia's internal problems. The library experts did a research job to put the study together, examining Russian newspapers and various sources, such as books and reports on Russia by people who have been there or have specialized in a study of Russia. They covered 10 areas of Russian groups, minorities. Aed Army, .ife: youth, intelligentsia, religious women, workers, collective farmers, and forced labor. The Btudy said: "Perhaps the greatest area of .enslon In the Soviet Union—that is, In terms of numbers Involved— ies within the youih group, normally thought of as a thoroughly ndoctrinated sector of Soviet society, filled with enthusiastic mem- )ers of the various Communist 'outh organizations." Because the study Is based on )ooks, papers or documents pub- icly available, there is no inforrna- ion In It which could be considered new, or hitherto secret. But when the various pieces ivhich make up life under the commissars are pulled together in one lace, as they are here, It makes . gruesome picture. Dishing Worms G/Ve "olice a Scare FARMINGTON, N.
