LOOKING AHEAD by Dr. George S. Benson : THE MARXIST MYTH <• Until recently, wide credi- biNty was given to reports, of adequate growth rates in Soviet industry and agriculture. Even if production was not 'always up to expectations of -the various 6-year [plans, certainly investment rates showed growth .that was phenomenal. This was the general treatment to give them the benefit of the doubt. Some of our economists' were perhaps not observant} enough to discover that growth rates do not equal performance. Undependaible Soviet information also obscured the truth, but now the full story is* beginning to come out. The .Soviet fable is .becoming quite transparent. Even Radio Free Europe and such interested Western observ- esr&-ait-flrst4iand as the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture have provided .glowing reports of growth rates in recent years. Even Mr. Freeman thought the Russian agriculture should be leading most of the world. But .t$ie facts are now revealed as otherwise. Even Mr. Khrushchev himself has admitted, as if the wheat sales were not sufficient evidence, that Soviet agriculture has failed to produce the food required by the Russian people. All the while, various propagandists and apologists have been praising the virtues of central planning. Their faces are getting red, an appropriate color. The U.S. News & World Report has recently, in a copy, righted interwiew with an ac cnowledged expert (no ama- «ur aipologisfi for socialism), jrought out the facts that Soviet production .-has yet; to approach half that of the U.S. despite all the claims to the contrary. The iperiodical interviewed Prof. G. Warren Nutter, head of the economics department at the University of Virginia, who has been exposing .t|he myth of Soviet power for many years. Some of Professor Nutter's information, the magazine &ays is just now being attested by the CIA. He estimates that industrial production in Soyiel Russia is now only about 30% of ours. Even in 1950 he says, per capita food production in Russia was below what; it was when 'the Communists took over in 1918. Socialized agriculture was doing no better in the postwar period than socialize* industry. • By now, the closed society, the walled-in, modern serfdom, has gotten itself into the dilemma of requiring change. It has come up against realities, but the tyranny will not let go. The rulers cannot change without sacrificing themselves. That would be too much revolution. What will Russia do? Shal she enter another reactionar; period— with renewed Stalin ist terror, stir up trouble out side so as to raid and despoi some neighbor, or attempt re forms that would make chang es possible without bloodshed Of course, the free worl would like to encourage th latter.

So far, Mr. Khrushchev seems to prefer reform, if he can stay in office. In this, he docs not find full agreement with the Chinese Communists. If the U.S. should decide to stand by and see the Soviet Union through some of its crises, whether a loan is required or not, some concessions should 'be demanded. Already Mr. Khrushchev has been so busy he has forgotten to create any tension over .Berlin for some months. He could also do the same with regard to Cuba and South America, even revise Communist aims in other parts of the world. The whole imperialistic apparatus should go. But the appeasers will no doubt be on hand, however, to bail him out without making any demands whatever. There may not] be any way for the leopard to change his spots. It has 1 mostly 'been the same with tyrannical govern ments. The dilemma is tha the Russians find themselves in need of more change than they have been (prepared fo or can reasonably undertake. All this is part of the Cold War, or should be, and need| not; require a new period of' nternational buddy-hood with Marxism. It does require faith n American principles, a foreign policy that is firm toward Communism everywhere, and plenty of courage. Now that the Russian people are on the glimmering edge of truCh, we must do nothing to help their leaders decieve .t;hem further. The present temper of the East European satellites offers mudh hope. Some are reported thoroughly fed up with Communism, despite the most thorough efforts of Moscow to Sov- ietize them. People in these countries, too, will be better off in the long run if the U.S. .adopts a policy of strength.
