Many men once prominent in the Soviet Union are missing today. The new year prompts speculation on which of them may be heard from in 1955. Sometimes the word come.s in dramatic fashion. An illustration is the communique last month announcing the execution of a former minister of stale security, Victor Abakumov, and five subordinates. mentioned in the Soviet Union for four years. Some of the missing Soviet leaders undoubtedly are dead—shot by secret orders or starved in prisons and concentration camps. Others may be aiive in prisons. Still others may occupy obscure posts, out of the limelight.

During the period 27 persons died in fires and 36 in a variety of accidents for a total of 345 violent deaths.

Germany Recalls London Official After Wife's Comment BONN, Germany W)—West Germany recalled her top diplomat from London todqy because his wife had described Britain at an official Christmas party as "an enemy foreign country." The Bonn government expressed regret for this expression, which it termed unacceptable. The diplomat, Charge d'Affaires Oskar Schlitter, and his wife Daisy, former German beauty queen aiid actress, returned to Bonn. They were recalled to answer questions about British and German newspaper reports of Mrs. Schlitter's remarks at- the party given by the West German Mission in London. Soon afterward, an official announcement acknowledged the envoy's wife had used the expression. The announcement said Schliiter. who served in Nazi Germany's diplomatic missions in Washington and London before World War H, had been "sent on leave" pending a decision on the affair. In London, the British* Foreign Office brushed the incident off as "a purely internal German affair." London newspapers, splashing the story, quoted Schlltter's wlft as telling the party for employees at the German Missions 'My husband, and I find again and again what treacherous ground London can be, and realize again and again that we live among enemies." Mrs. Schlitter denied intending to express anti-British sentiments.
