Transcript ■■ FROM ^Ote threat ^Pretew^e "Any who are inclined to believe that there has been a change of heart in Moscow should remember that the men who are now attempting to prove themselves amiable souls are the same men who carried out murders, tortures, and mass starvation for Stalin." William C. Bullitt served as American Ambassador to the Soviet Union from 1933 until 1936. His distinguished career in government service has also included the post of Ambassador at Large in 1941-42 and of special assistant to the Secretary of the Navy in 1941-43. Mr. Bullitt began his career as associate editor and foreign correspondent for the "Philadelphia Public Ledger" and, in 1944, returned to this field as foreign correspondent for "Life" magazine. That same year he enlisted in the French Army as an infantry major. He was decorated with a Croix de Guerre with palm and was made commander of Ihe French Legion of Honor. He is the author of "Report to the American People" and "The Great Globe Itself." Page 6 A Talk with Voroshilov J. in-: present attempt of the Moscow commissars to masquerade as innocent victims of Stalin's sadistic brutality should deceive no one. A hyena that laughs remains a hyena. A wolf in sheep's clothing changes his coat tint not his heart. Americans have been bamboozled so often by this Communist tactic that few are likely to be impressed by the present smiles and bleatings of the Kremlin gang. Any who are inclined to believe that there has been a change of heart in Moscow should remember that the men who are now attempting to prove themselves amiable souls are the same men who carried out murders, tortures, and mass starvations for Stalin. To me they seem more repellent now when they are professing that they were always horrified by Stalin's lying and bloodthirsty brutality than they seemed when they were frankly gangsters. Many of them were murderous criminals on their own hook long before Stalin achieved supreme power. For example, Marshal Voroshilov, who is today the Soviet Chief of State — the Soviet Union's Queen Elizabeth — has always been able to smile dis- armingly and to pat children affectionately on the head, and is no doubt the nicest of the Communist lot. Just how nice he is seems to me worth relating at this time. Quite a Character One night in the winter of 19.34 he was seated on my right at dinner anil Marshal Budenny was on my left. They had drunk a bit of vodka and both were relaxed and gay. "You know, Bullitt," said Voroshilov, Budenny is the man who won the civil war without ever knowing what he was fighting about." "That's true," laughed Budenny. "My motto has never been proletarians of the world unite; it has always been cavalrymen of the world unite. I don't care why I fight so long as I have a good war." By WILLIAM C. BULLITT We laughed, and Voroshilov the said, "I think the most extraordinsj thing we ever did together was to cap hire Kiev without fighting." "What happened?" I asked "Well," said Voroshilov, "there wd 11,000 Czarist officers with their WW and children in Kiev and they 8 more troops than we had, and never could have captured the city fighting, so we used propaganda we told them that they would 1»' '' leased and allowed to go tn l'1' homes with their families and treat! as well as possible by our army, ;" they believed us and surrendered. "What did you do then?" I asked- "Oh," said Voroshilov, "we shot ; the men and boys and we put all " women and the girls into brothels " our army." "Do you think that was a very cent thing to do?" I asked ,if iii IV "My army needed women," #! Voroshilov, "and I was concerned ^ my army's health and not with ™ health of those women; and it il'"! make any difference anyhow, becaj they were all dead within tin" months." Voroshilov no doubt deserves position as Chief of State of the Son1 Union, and is no doubt the most n0 orable and charming of CommuD* but that is exactly how honorable iV charming he is. I hope that Americans who ma}' V come inclined to believe any pron1'*' now made by the Communist lea'",, will remember the fate of the C/'1' officers and their wives and sons a daughters in Kiev. The present Soviet objective I clear. It is to lull us into a sleep! death while the Soviet Union achl^ control of new areas without war, *| prepares sufficient hydrogen l'1"1 and intercontinental jet bombers destroy our retaliatory power il. sneak attack, so that some day it s\ be in a position to blot us out ^' impunity.
