Mikoyan May Put the Freeze on Khrushchev By LEON DETVNEN NEA Special Co-respondent BONN, Germany — (NEA) — Although Nlklta Khrushchev continues to talk tough there is increasing evidence that his personal power is already on the decline. Yet another man Is emerging in the Kremlin to contest Khrushchev's supremacy in the Red world, 62-year-old Anastas Mikoy­ an, First Deputy Premier in Moscow's recently-reshuffled governs ment, long-time member of the powerful Politburo and probably the shrewdest businessman in Russia. "The wordly wise little Armenian" former U. S. Ambassador Walter Bedell Smith once called Mikoyan. For many years Miko­ yan was a protege of Stalin. But today he Is rapidly becoming the favorite of the Red Army, which has become the dominant "kingmaker" in Russia. A German diplomat recently returned from Russia told me that should Marshal Georgi Zhukov— or his rival, Marshal Ivan S. Konev — decide that the hard- drinking and loud • mouthed Khrushchev has outlived his usefulness, sober Mikoyan is the likeliest choice to succeed him. Shadow Under Stalin Mikoyan was relatively unknown before Stalin's death. He is short and dark and has a bristling mustache and, piercing oriental eyes. He displays a taste for well-tailored clothes. of Sanain, near the Georgian bor-| der where Stalin also was born. Like Stalin, he studied for the priesthood. But, unlike Stalin, Mi­ koyan actually finished his courses at an Armenian Church seminary, graduating with honors in 1915. However, the same year he joined the Bolshevik Party, became an underground conspirator and subsequently took part in the 1917 revolution which ushered Lenin into power. Regional Chief In the early 1920's Mikoyan became one of the Communist party regional chiefs whom Stalin put into office when he was engaged in a life-and-death struggle with his bitter enemy, Leon Trotsky. He helped Stalin defeat Trotsky and after that Mlkoyan's rise in the Kremlin hierarchy, mostly as an expert in domestic and foreign trade, was steady. After Stalin's death — although Mikoyan was among the first to denounce his late benefactor as a tryant—he preferred to remain in obscurity while Lavrenti Beria, Georgi Malenkov, Vyacheslav Molotov and Khrushchev reached for power. An oriental skilled in the arts of bargaining in intrigue, Mikoyan is thus the only high-ranking Soviet official to have survived for more than three decades all the blood purges and the Kremlin's internal upsets.

Rumor had it that he was also going to import popcorn machines—but at this point the other Politburo members became frightened of the subversive propaganda value of popcorn and prevailed on Stalin to veto the project. One of the first things Mikoyan did when he arrived in the U.

"Comrad Mikoyan," the frightened official answered, "our workers wouldn't stand for this capitalist method of being cheated by getting air bubbles instead of beer." "Rot," Mikoyan snapped, "make sure that the beer machinery you buy in Milwaukee produces plenty of foam." 'Must Study U.S.' When he returned to Russia Mi­ koyan proclaimed far and wide that Russians "must study America." However, this did not stop him from attacking the U. S. as an "undernourished, exploiting imperialist, country" when Stalin embarked on his anti-U. S. policy after the war. U.

This question has' become < a national debating point in Britain. In the center of the talk is actress Vivien Leigh, who has set tongues wagging with a jaunt tr Italy in the company of her first spouse, Leigh Holman and their 23-year- old daughter, Suzanne. Adding a fillip to the controversy is the fact that Vivien's present hubby, actor Sir Laurence Olivier, is spending his holiday in Britain with his son by his previous marriage to actress Jill Esmond. Denounces Trip It was all too much for a lady member of Parliament. She denounced Miss Leigh's vacation as setting a "terrible example" for the country's young people. From Italy, Miss Leigh shrugged off the criticism as "ill- considered and rude." But the affair has been taken up with gusto by the British press and public. The prevailing view seems to be that the dark-haired actress—the screen's Scarlett O'Hara—has a perfect right to be on the friendliest of terms with the man from whom she was divorced 17 years ago. Later this month Miss Leigh plans to go on alone to Yugoslavia. There she will be joined by her present husband, the other half of Britain's first family of the theater. Mrs. Jean Mann, a gray-haired vacation business too much for her Scottish tastes. Terrible Example She told a conference of social workers; "You can pack your first husband up—this is what our young people will be telling us— and you can go on holiday with him now- and again. You might even be able to spend weekends with the first and the middle of the week with the second. It is a terrible example for people who occupy high places in life to place before our children." Miss Leigh's reply, through a reporter, was: "The presence of my daughter, who usually, lives with her father, furnishes to any reasonable person the explanation of our vacation together." It is the first time the Oliviers have spent a vacation apart since their marriage in 1941. If Mrs. Mann hoped to win support from British newspapers, she was badly disappointed. William N. Connor, vitriolic columnist of the mass-circulation Daily Mirror, who writes under the name Cassandra, ripped into Mrs. Mann. "What is her purpose?" he wrote. "Does she want matrimonial unhappiness to endure forever? Does she want the bitterness of divorce to bloom endlessly like a spray of belladonna? "What pestiferous rubbish this is." Two other newspapers ran editorials urging Mrs. Mann to apologize to Miss Leigh.
