DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN ORGANIZATION
Military Myth Explored
By JOHN MEREDITH
EDITOR'S NOTE: Seven experts
on the Soviet Union participated in
the University's "Conference on the
Khrushchev Era and After" last
weekend. The following is the third
article in a five-part series report-
ing the last five speeches of the
conference. The first two were cov-
ered in Friday's Daily.
"The fall of Khrushchev was
signalled by a temporary meeting
of the minds between the military
and other important segments of
the Soviet power echelon," Prof.
John Erickson of the University
of Manchester asserted at last
weekend's "Conference on the
Khrushchev Era and After."
From the military point of view,
Khrushchev was putting the USSR
in a straight jacket and the lead-
ership felt compelled to act, he
Erickson divided the Khrush-'
chev era into three military per-
iods. The tone of the first period
-1953-'56-was set by the post-
Stalin power struggle during which
Khrushchev abegan attempts to
build his image as a military' hero
and strategist. It was marked by
the beginning of a military de-
bate between traditionalists and
radicals, Erickson said, with the
radicals, like Khrushchev, em-
phasizing the need to exploit re-
cent technological advances in
In 1957, he noted, the second
phase of Khrushchev's associa-
tion with the military was ushered
in, as the premier emerged as
the leader of the now dominant
radicals and further built up his
personal military image by en-
hancing his wartime experiences
Basing their program on the
assumption that the West can be
deterred, Soviet leaders became
increasingly dependent on nuclear
power at the expense of conven-
tional forces. While the shift to-
ward modern weapons was inevit-
able, Erickson pointed out that the
Russian program demonstrated
overconfidence and simplisme on
the part of its masterminds. At
this point, he said, the military
leaders kept silent; Khrushchev
had "pre-empted" them.
In 1961, however, the tide be-
gan to turn,rand the third period
of the Khrushchev era began.
Erickson pointed to a June mili-
tary show as clear evidence that
Khrushchev was staking his pres-
tige on modern technology as the
core of Russian military strategy
-a position of invaluable aid to
the radicals but potentially dan-
gerous to the premier.
Yet, Erickson said, there was
evidence that even Khrushchev's
military backers were beginning
to see a danger in overemphasing
modern means of warfare and in
the dominance of Khrushchev's
own thinking in military deci-
The Cuban crisis, as a glaring
failure of the premier's strategy,
gave impetus to these trends. It
precipitated a debate on the use
of military weapons, Erickson
commented, and Khrushchevad-
mitted that some revisions were
However, he said, Khrushchev
had returned to a more rigid po-
sition by May 1963, and in De-
cember he announced a further
reduction in conventional forces.
It then became obvious that the
radicals were alienated from

traditionalists in attacks on the
In September Khrushchev
"emasculated the ground forces,
reducing the ground forces com-
mand to the level of a training
command"-the move which im-
mediately preceded the premier's
The military leaders apparently
feared, Erickson said, that
Khrushchev was committing Rus-
sia to an inflexible and dangerous
dependence on modern warfare
"In a sense," he explained,
Khrushchev's responsibility was,
limited. The shift toward nu-
clear power, the escalation of
weapons and the revision in mili-
tary policy were not entirely his
Erickson noted, however, that
Khrushchev's tactlessness, his
strategic planning in 1964 and the
background of the Cuban failure
all combined to make military
leaders apprehensive that Russia
might find herself trapped by her
unbalanced military machine.
Khrushchev's fall has not set-
tled the debate over military
strategy, Erickson said, but the
military leaders have once again
receded from the forefront of the
political scene: The fall of
Khrushchev did not mark the
sudden emergence of military
"Soviet military officials arej
still preoccupied with purely mili-
tary matters," he pointed out.
'"However, the increased import-
ance of technology has enhanced
their power, and the younger gen-
eration in the military command
is more politically oriented than
the old guard."
Council on OAS Role
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (U)-Ambassador Adlai E. Stevenson
chided the UN Security Council yesterday for what he said was a
childish effort to downgrade the role of the Organization of American
States in the Dominican crisis.
In a biting speech to the council the United States chief delegate
said such action "seems to me to be positively embarrassing," and
could be compared with that of a 'petulant actress, jealous of her
Stevenson drew immediate fire from Soviet Ambassador Nikolai T.
Fedorenko, who said Stevenson was playing the role of "a second rate
actor." As for defense of the OAS, Fedorenko said this reminded him
of a statement by former New
York Gov. Alfred E. Smith that
"however thinly you slice the ba-
loney, baloney remains baloney."

Stevenson added that "such
