Transcript i .. FROM THE GREAT Frederick Woltman, columnist for ihe Scripps-Howard Newspaper Alliance, has received a wide range of citations for his writings on domestic and international communism. Mr. Woltman was awarded ihe Pulitzer prize in 7947 for his articles on the Amerasia case. His article for this symposium is a reprint of a column published on March 22, 7956. T, he Communist Party, which for decades hailed Stalin as the "greatest living" Marxist-Leninist and symbol of peace, is preparing for tlie big crawl. Its hour of humiliation is at hand. A major upheaval lias already start- eel to rock the American comrades since the 20th Congress of the Russian Communist Party a few weeks ago blasted their idol off his pedestal. Heads Due to Rolf Soon their breast-beating ancl wails of confession ("self-criticism" in Red terminology) will fill the air. Most of the Party's leaders, in prison or out, will knuckle under to the Kremlin's new version of history; namely, that their hero was really a terroristic, homicidal maniac and military bungler who nearly lost Russia to the Nazis. Some heads are expected to roll. Particularly that of the 75-year-old William Z. Foster, Party chairman and Stalin's tool here ever since the Soviet dictator ousted Jay Lovestone in 1929 anel put the Foster faction in control. American Communists Begin Their Crawl By FREDERICK WOLTMAN Indeed, Eugene Dennis, re-emerging as Party secretary after his prison term, has already virtually pushed Foster out in the cold. Photos of Stalin are coming down fast off the walls of local Communist offices. It's only a question whether Foster will get the same merciless shellacking — and expulsion — he handed out to his rival, Earl Brenvder. in 1945, when a drastic- Party line shift was ordered in Moscow. Double Talk Coming There will be a transitional period of near-death agonies. There will bean outpouring of millions of words of double talk to sell anti-Stalinism to the rank ancl file which had been fed Stalinism every morning for breakfast. In the windup, the Communist Part) will be thoroughly committed to the new look: to convince the American people, including capitalists, that the Soviet chiefs are just a bunch of > good guys. LP J Ancl it was all Joe Stalin's fault. Went Off Deep End The crawling process began last week. Alan Max, editor of the Communist Party mouthpiece, the Dailij Worker, came up with a declaration that would have cost him his neck last month. Maybe, Mr. Max said, admitting he was bothered and confused, "we went overboard in defending things like the idea of Stalin as infallible, in opposing any suggestion that civil liberties were being fully respected in the Soviet Union, in discouraging serious discussion and criticism of Soviet movies, books, etc." This unprecedented confession of kowtowing to Stalin was followed by an equally astonishing Worker dispatch from Moscow. The* 20th Congress, it saiel, had condemned "glorification of Stalin" as "very harmful" to the Party ancl the Soviet Union. For twenty years I This, the article- said, led to a Stalin "cult," which must never again happen to any Communist Party. And that* what makes it tough for the American Reel chieftains to get themselves oft tbe hook. For on December 16, 1949, they pu* out a special Daily Worker edition eulogizing Stalin on his 70th anniversary. No words, or holds, were barred- Stalin was "the organizer of th'' world working class for peace," th'' "plain man of the people," the mi*"' tary genius who "saved millions Ot, American boys" by his successful defense of Stalingrad. A Simple Soldier Stalin was "a man with the head °* a scholar, with the face of a simp'e working man, in the clothes of !l simple soldier. * * °" "Compared to this master theore'1' cian anel organizer," gushed FostC' "the capitalist politicians of our time* are illiterates ancl mere rule-of-tlm"' blunderers." , Yet, time ancl again, they "repeat1'' the-ir ignorant ancl malicious lie abo" Stalin's 'totalitarianism,' meaning " this mystifying gibberish that StaW dictates what people shall think ' do." Dictates? The 20th Congress su'1 V he shot people for less. i "-ed w S tin Nri 1,1 t*" d >ral r In., Page 26 Facts Fob. m News, October.
