MOSCOW (AP) - the Soviet national
election "campaign" - now in full
swing with major speeches - is a far
cry from the competitve electioneering
,of the West.
It is an orderly celebration of the
Communist Party, the only party that
will be on Sunday's ballot when the
nation votes for 1,500 deputies to the
Soviet Parliament that will sit for the
next five years. The two - chamber body
whose function is to approve the
decisions of the party, meets twice a
year for one or two days.
Outsiders still take interest in the
events leading up to the preordained
outcome, especially in the week
preceding voting. That is when each of
the top Soviet rulers - the 12 members
of the Politburo - gives a major ad-
dress during his one election "meeting"

secretary on Feb. 13 following the death
of Yuri Andropov.
Chernenko will hold his constituency
meeting in the Kremlin Palace of
Congresses today. The nationally
televised speech will be his first since
Andropov's Red Square funeral on Feb.
14, and an appropriate forum for an-
nouncing any major foreign or
domestic policy initiatives.
Premier Nikolai Tikhonov, who spoke
yesterday, was the last of the 11 other
Politburo members to give his election

speech. The speech was carried live b
Soviet national television and follwed
by a concert and other entertainment
before the election audience at the
Bolshoi Theater.
Tikhonov said Soviet disarmament
proposals are aimed at reviving detente
and that the Soviets seek trade arid
cooperation with all states. He also a c-
cused the United States of wantin to
bring "economic death" to the SO
Union but said socialism will triumph.

systems, like the IBM Personal
Computer and new processors
like the 68000o are developed,
Microsoft's programmers get
their hands on the machines
before they go into production.
So your hardware suggestions
and software innovations dur-
