The government's move was
foreshadowed in Queen Elizabeth's
speech opening a new parliamen-
tary session. It aims at. allaying
allied anxieties over Britain's de-
clining military powers and at
swiftly reinforcing the underman-
ned Rhine army.'
"My armed forces will continue
to contribute (in cooperation
with my allies) to the prevention
of war," the monarch said.
The plans of the government
immediately ran into opposition

hours later, the traditional de-
bate on. the royal address began
in the House of Commons. Depu-

said the measures were "not par-
ticularly fair" to those service-
men caught in the military net.
Four main steps were announc-
ed to strengthen Britain's army:
1) Men performing their na-
tional service under the expiring
conscription system could be kept
at the colors an extra six months.
The War Office explained later
about 50,000 men could be af-
fected but far less are likely to be
chosen as thing stand now.This is
a. short-term measure designed to
enable the Rhine army to main-
tain its strength while the Berlin
crisis remains unsettled.
2) Former conscripts of part-
time service could be recalled for
six-month stints. The War Office
said this would make about 180,-

'U. S. Army vehicles who escorted them into the Eastern sector
after they had been refused permission to enter by East German
police. Reports yesterday indicated that East-West tension in
Berlin was dropping off.

BERLIN M)-The dangerous period of high East-West tension
in Berlin appeared over last night, at least for the time being.
High American authorities in Berlin say there is always danger
of new Communist harassments of the Western powers in the city
in the next days, or the next weeks. On the other hand, the Russians
may have decided to let the Berlin crisis cool for a while.

Tightens Leadership
The conference endorsed a
tightened party leadership under
Khrushchev and a 20-year-plan
designed to make the Soviet Un-
ion the world's leading economic
power. Khrushchev declared the
Congress had marked an impor-
tant step in establishing full Com-
munism in the Soviet Union.
"The present generation of So-
viet people will live under Com-
munism," declared the, resolution,
borrowing from the 50,000-word
economic plan. "Communism has
become the most influential poli-
tical force of our time. It is not
imperialism (capitalism) but so-
cialism (Communism) that deter-
mines today the principle direc-
tion of world development."
Wild applause marked the end
of the Congress that saw the one-
time unchallenged leader of world
Communism, Josef Stalin, reviled
as a murderer, his followers fur-
ther disgraced, the Albanian Com-
munist leadership assailed and the
Red Chinese openly defiant.

Ma Tighten
Party Power
Associated Press News Analyst
BERLIN (W)-The results of the
Communist Party Congress which
ended yesterday indicate that So-
viet Premier Nikita ,Khrushchev,
having won his battle with dissi-
dents, now will attempt to tight-
en his control of the Party.
The Presidium, supposed to be
the ruling body of the Party, has
been pared to 11 members, which
makes it resemble the old Stalin-
ist Politburo all over again.
But if there is to be any Stalin-
ism, the chances are that it will
be administered collectively. If
Khrushchev gets any ideas of ex-
ercising anything approaching the
enormous power wielded by the
old dictator, he probably will face
yet another battle.
Control Safeguard
Limiting the Presidium to 11
members may have been a move
to safeguard the Kremlin's central
control while Khrushchev goes
ahead in industry and agriculture
with measures designed to remove
bureaucratic roadblocks. These al-
ways have hampered the Soviet
Several staunch Khrushchev
supporters were dropped, indicat-
ing compromise at the top.
The Presidium is supposed on
paper to be elected by the Party,
Congress. Such matters actually
are decided well in advance of
congresses;'the rank and file dele-
gates simply approve what has
been decided for them.
Before Speech
Thus whateverbcompromises
were made came before, Khrush-
chev mounted the Congress ros-
trum to denounce Stalin's lieuten-
ants as bunglers and murderers.
There had to be a reason for
this, and the reason seems to be
that elements within the Party
still oppose Khrushchev both in
his domestic economic policies and
in his foreign policy. There are
likely people still in high places
whom Khrushchev would like to
push out of the way.

are major.
If they are, authorities express
belief it may mean the Russians
have decided to try to settle the.
Berlin issue in their favor even at
the risk of a nuclear war.
The threat of such a war may,
however, have decreased.
Aithorities say that when Unit-
ed States and Soviet tanks came
face to face with each other last
weekend, the Russians were shown
that the West was determined to
resist with force any major inter-
ference with its rights in Berlin.
It is of major significance that
the Russians sent their own tanks
-rather than those of the East
German regime - to face United
States last week. s
This means the Russians have
accepted the responsibility for
