Suffering only mild political
AND FRIDAY UNTIL 9:00 P.M. setbacks with the death of Stal-
in, Brezhnev found favor with
Khrushchev, who helped him be-
come Soviet president in 1960
and four years later retired him
from the largely honorary post
to give him new party duties.
Khrushchev was believed at the
time to be grooming Brezhnev as
his successor.
BREZHNEV joined his Polit-
buro colleagues in removing
Khrushchev in 1964 and took
over as head of the national par-
ty organization. For the next
seven years he served as a mem-
ber of the Kremlin's "collective
leadership," sharing power with
President Nikolai V. Podgorny
and Premier Alexei N. Kosygin.
But in the past two years,
Brezhnev has demonstrated his
efficiency at behind-the-scenes
politics, purging his main oppo-
nents in the Politburo and prov-
ing that the collective leadership
is now defunct.
