Brezhnev Begins Climb to
MOSCOW OP)-Leonid Brezhnev,
following a pattern set by Nikita'
Khrushchev, has taken what
could be the first step toward
becoming undisputed No. 1 man
in the Kremlin.
At last week's session of the
Supreme Soviet-the Soviet par-
liament-Brezhnev got a govern-
ment post in addition to his du-
ties as first secretary of the Soviet
Or it could help him shift into
the largely ceremonial post of
Soviet president and turn the
party leadership over to a youn-
The first hint of which way
Brezhnev will turn is likely to
come from President Anastas Mi-
koyan, who will be 70 next month
and is rumored about to retire.
As party first secretary, Brezh-
nev now holds the top job here.
Eventually it could help him, The party runs the government
like Khrushchev, to consolidate and Brezhnev heads the party.
his power at the top of both party But Brezhnev still shares his
and government. power with the "collective leader-
ship" that succeeded Khrushchev,
most notably with Premier Alexei
Kosygin, who runs the govern-
Both Brezhnev and Kosygin are
on the 12-man presidium, highest
organ of the party.
Until last week Brezhnev had
no high government post. Now the
party chief is a member of. the
presidium of the parliament.
The immediate effect is to give
Brezhnev a position from which he
as well as Kosygin can represent
the Soviet government in summit
conferences with Western govern-
This is what Khrushchev did.
As party chief alone, Khrush-
chev would not have been able to
represent the Soviet government
at the summit. This role would
have gone to then-Premier Nikolai
But Khrushchev, like Brezhnev,
had himself made a member of
parliament's presidium. In that
capacity Khrushchev attended the
Big Four summit conference in
Geneva in 1955 with Bulganin.
At that conference Khrush-
chev's name was listed second to
Bulganin. But in 1958 Bulganin
was out and Khrushchev was both
party chief and premier.
Khrushchev also used his par-
liamentary post to make state
visits in 1955 with Bulganin to
India, Burma and Afghanistan.
Brezhnev and Kosygin have not
yet traveled outside the Commun-
ist camp. When they do, they can
now go as a pair.
There could be two other ex-
planations for the new post
awarded to Brezhnev.
If Mikoyan retires, the man who
succeeds him as president probably
will be chosen from the presidium
of parliament since the president
is chairman of that presidium. As
a presidium member, Brezhnev
would be eligible to succeed Mi-
koyan as president, a post Brezh-
nev once held before.
Brezhnev could then be both
party chief and president. This,
however, appears unlikely since
the presidency involves time-
consuming ceremonial chores.
Brezhnev is only 59 butthas
hsd a heart attack, and there
have been unconfirmed reports
that he is anxious to move to a
less demanding post.
Under this line of thinking he
could give up the party chairman-
ship and take over as president
again. So far there has been no
evidence that Brezhnev hassuch
plans. The first Soviet Commun-
ist party congress since October
1961 is scheduled for next March
22. The only leader listed to speak:
besides Kosygin is Leonid Brezh-

M' Heroes' Cry:
.Let's Paint State'
"Hey Jack, what are you doing Friday night?"
"Well, I thought I would go up to State with a few buddies
and some paint (ed note: one might substitute "brothers") and
raise a little hell."
How many hell-raisers left for East Lansing to do "their part"
over the past week is undertermined, but Michigan men did strike
as indicated by an MSU press release earlier this week. Thus the
tradition of campus painting goes on.
It must have taken great courage for some individuals to
drive to Lansing-early in the week-with their paint buckets
or spray cans in hand and at some obscure hour in the morning
paint "U of M" on the MSU campus buildings.
If anyone has ever walked across our campus on a weeknight
after 2 a.m., they will certainly agree with me that it is almost
deserted. In fact, the graduate library could probably be stolen-
despite the watchful Sanford Security Service in their imitation
police cars-and it would not be missed until the next morning.
How difficult would it be to crawl from bush to bush until one
could get close enough to slop some blue paint on a building?
With this in mind I think the entire campus owes these valiant
men a commendation and a reward. The word expulsion comes to
Contrast this kind of "Hate State" raid with an incident
that occurred a few years ago between USC and UCLA. It seems
that prior to the big game several USC students sneaked into
the planning meeting for the upcoming UCLA halftime card
stunts. After the meeting these students forged false color cards
and revised all of the formations. At halftime the fans were
treated to a beautifully executed show designed by the men of
USC. The students in the card section could not see what they
were performing, and the befuddled director allowed most of the
stunts to go on to the sheer delight of the fans.
In my humble opinion this took one helluva lot more guts,
intelligence, and imagination than what went on this week.
At the other extreme: two years ago before the Harvard-Yale
clash on the gridiron four Yale men set out to raise a little hell
on the Harvard campus. They painted "Y-A-L-E" on the beautiful
new graduate library, and the paint permeated the stone. The only
method of removal was sandblasting which was undertaken at the
cost of several thousand dollars. The offenders were caught and fined
one-fourth of the damage, but, to my knowledge, were not expelled.
Even at the "Michigan of the East" these types of senseless
pranks go on, but why?
Is it the old revenge argument that, "They painted our
campus last year, so..
Or perhaps "We want to show our spirit!" As for spirit, the
efforts of Michigan men could certainly be channelled into more
constructive areas such as pep rallies and the like. Even when
Michigan was on its way to the Big Ten championship last year
the pep rallies were sparsely attended. Is that spirit?
