Premier Chou En-Lai represents
Red China and is the main focus
of diplomatic attention. Khrush-
chev himself met Chou at the air-
port, the only delegate so far he
has turned out to greet.
Many diplomats believe Chou
will try to get his Rlussian allies
to tone down those sections of
the program calling for peaceful
coexistence and for supportof all
independence movements, whether
they are Communist or not.
Only members of the Soviet

designed to- lessen the emotional

Congress of the Communist Party will be the rubber stamp for
Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev's policies, Prof. William Ballis of
the political science department said last night.
The Congress-which begins in Moscow today-"represents the
dual program of the Communist block-the extension of Communism
throughout the world along with the policy of peaceful coexistence,"
Prof. Balis said. He claimed, however; that these two programs are
inconsistent in the long run. al--

the Communists in the short run. atlons Study
