Zhdanov, a member of the
Soviet Communist Party Polit-
buro, said Russia would take
the lead in attempts to wreck
the Marshall Plan and prevent
the United States from making
a "49th state."
He compared the "ruling circles"
of the United States with "Hitler-

"new military adventures."
His remarks were contained
in a two-page spread in the

Plan" was not a plan but a sug-

it will truly be a program of the
United States government and not
of any one department or agency.
