Former Senator-
'Des Yesterday
At 'U'Hospital
Moody To Be Buried at Detroit
Friday or Saturday, Williams Says
By RONA FRIEDMAN
Former Senator Blair Moody died at 3:55 p.m. yesterday at
University Hospital.
The governor's office said late last night that Moody will be
buried in Detroit Friday or Saturday.
A spokesman said Moody's body will be taken to the William
Hamilton*funeral home in Detroit.
At present no plans have been made for Moody's body to lie in
state in Lansing.
The death of the 52-year-old one-time Washington correspond-
ent was a shock to followers who believed he was recovering
. from an attack of virus pneu-
monia.

Post-Stalin
Trends Told
By Larson
By MERLE MAYERSTEIN
Thomas B. Larson, of the Re-
search Division for the USSR of the
United States Department of State,
spoke yesterday on trends in"So-
viet Internal Politics" since the
death of Stalin in March 1953 at
an afternoon seminar and an eve-
ning round table discussion in a
special University Russian Studies
program.
"There is a new style of leader-
ship in Soviet Russia called col-
lective leadership," said Larson.
"A central committee noW' takas
the place of the hero, Stalin. The
two major figures on this commit-
tee are Georgi Malenkov, top
government leader, and Khrush-
chev, top party leader.."
"Within a month of Stalin's
death, his myth had been buried,"
the speaker continued. "He is not
mentioned anymore in the news-
papers, for now the talk centers
around collective leadership."
- How to be Popular
Larson went on to say that the
Stalinistic policy of building up the
economy meant a lot of privation
for the population. If the new re-
gime takes measures to alleviate
the situation of the people, they
will undoubtedly be popular, he
continued. There has been an al-
teration in therinvestment policy
which puts more money into agri-
culture, trade, and light industry.
This is coupled with an ambitious
program to increase agricultural
output.
"However, it is still too soon to
see the effects of the new regime's
policies," said the Soviet politics
expert. "The biggest question now
is, 'Will they continue to put re-
sources in the sectors which will
alleviate the situation of the popu-
lation?' "
