MCCANN United Press Foreign Analyst ,1116 Kremlin evidently has decided to put its Communist "thought control" system to a historic test. Russians are being asked to believe that Joseph Stalin, elevated to Red sainthood on his 70th birthday in 1949, actually was a general no-good. That ought not to be difficult. It certainly was no secret even from the people themselves. They know all about the secret police. They knew about the slave labor camps in which millions of people were worked and starved to death. They knew about the police spies In their own social circles, even in their own families. The real test which the handful of Russia's leaders have decided to risk in their attempt to put over the idea that they, like the people, were victims of Stalin's lunatic dictatorship. It is imoossible not to believe that people will ask about premier Nikolai A. Bulganin, Communist party leader Nikita S. Khrushchev and the rest: And where were you all the time? ? All the men in the presidium of the central committee of the Communist party, the rulers o£ Russia, were close collaborators of Stalin. It was they who elevated him to •sainthood, they who helped to send Communists and non-Communists alike to the slave labor camps, they who made Russia itself a gigantic slave, camp.' 1 . . Stalin's life in .power is now being divided into two parts. First, the period between. 1917 and 393-1 when he collaborated with Lenin, succeeded Lenin and consolidated his own power. Secondly, the period from 1934 until his death in 1953, when, he 'ruled as absolute dictator. But Bulganin, Khrushchev and the rest were Communists long before 1934. They were co-directors of the Red "terror. They, too, ANNA MAGNANI BURT LAXCASTZR BRUNSON MOVIE—Sunday through \Vednseday ahe the booking dates for "The Rose Tattoo," at the Brunson theater. Mdgnani won an Oscar in the. role of a fiery widow. 'Rose Tattoo' Booked -Magnani Will Emote Here Sunday through Wednesday will give Baytonians time next week to agree or disagree with the Academy Award's choice for best actress of the year. Anna Magnani will emote in her Oscar winning way in "The Rose Tattoo," the only comedy ever written by drama-heavy Tennessee Williams. Williams said he originally wrote the play with Magnani in mind as the fiery Sicilian-born dressmaker who grieves over her dead husband. Unable to play in the Broadway craetion, Anna had to wait fo r Hollywood and an Oscar. " Marisa Pavan, who like Magnani is a native of Italy, plays her daughter in "The Rose Tattoo." She was a nominee for a best supporting actress award. High Court Orders Re-Trial In Suit Over Gas Rates AUSTIN —UP— The Texas Supreme Court Thursday overturned a trial court ruling in a suit challenging: the. Railroad Com- mision's system of determining city gas rates. The high court ordered re-trial of a suit brought by the Houston Natural Gas Corp. against the Railroad Commission in connection with a commission ruling on gas rates for the city of Alvin. The gas company appealed to the commission from a city council order rejecting a rate boost. Austin District Judge Jack Roberts ruled in favor of the gas company and issued a permanent injunction against enforcement of the commission's rate order. The Supreme Court reversed the trial court order and said the case should be re-tried on two points: "What is the fair value of the company's property used and useful in servicing the city of Alvin? "What is the lowest composite percentage rate of return which will induce the investment of adequate capital?" The commission found that the fair value of the company's property w?s largely equivalent to the book cost, and' ordered rates set which would return nn estimated 6.12 per cent on its valuation. The gas company contended that any rate paving a return of less than 7 per "rent on the- present fair value is unjust and unreasonable. Says Texas City SnteJter Not Efficient WASHINGTON —UP—President Eisenhower said Thursday the government-owned tin smelter f.i Texas City, Tex., is not an efficient plant. It wns one of those things that wcv go{ into during the war for emergency reasons, he said. Mr.' Eisenhower made the statement nt his news conference when asked about a report that ho will soon recommend to Congress that the smelter be closed. He said no formal proposal on the smelter has come to his attention yet. But he volunteered the remark about it being inefficient. South Carolina was the eighth slate to enter the Union. It ratified the Constitution May 23.177S. Eurt Lancaster, who has been se'en in many an off-beat role in recent years, "plays Magnani's lover. Jo Van Fleet, who won a best supporting actress award in "Bast of Eden" is in the cast of "The Rose. 1 ' Magnani also won the best actress award from the New York Film Critics for her first American movie. She first gained American attention in the great Italian post war movie, "Open City," directed by her former lover, Roberto Rossil- Hni. SI 9 Million Is Voted For Earth Satellites WASHINGTON —UP—An extra appropriation of $795,768,823 breezed through the House Thursday without a record vote. It included $19,262,000 for work on a dozen earth satellites and funds to carry other government functions through the present fiscal year to June 30. A" demand for a roll call delayed its passage Tuesday. When it was called up Wednesday the demand was not repeated and the measure was passed by voice vote. The bill now goes to the Senate. shared responsibility for the famine of 1932-1933- in which untold millions died—a famine caused by ruthless farm collectivization. After 1934, Eulganin, Khrushchev and the rest co-operated with Stalin in the purge trials of the mid- 1930's, when he wiped out the "old Bolsheviks" who had been his closest colleagues. It was relatively easy for Stalin to concoct the evidence on which these men were judicially murdered. Also, the victims themselves were dedicated Communists. Though confessions were extorted from thsm by torture, many of them seemed to co-operate in their own denunciation. They, too, were thought-controlled. It is not going to be so easy for these men to convince Russia's 200 million people, or even its seven million members of the Communist party, to swallow the idea that they were guiltless. Nevertheless, it is quite plain that the men in the Kremlin are convinced that they can get away with it. Henry Shapiro, chief U.P. correspondent" in Moscow, returned' there last fall after a stay in the United States. Shapiro has spent most of the last 23 years in Russia. One of the first things he noted was a nea air of confidence among the top leaders. Undoubtedly, they already had decided to debunk Stalin—and had decided the Russian people would buy the new party line.
