shikov in his place.”
The sudden announcement of the
major shake-up in Russia’s high
command struck foreign diplomat
ic circles like a bolt. In some quar
ters, such as the U. N. in the United
States itself, delegates were as
tounded by the news.
Diplomatic circles in London
speculated as to whether the pro
motion of Vishinsky might have
some connection with the current
move by western nations to formu
late a North Atlantic defense pact.
And while they were speculating
on this, they also were trying to
figure out the significance of the
switch which found Menshikov,
formerly vice-minister of foreign
trade, taking over the post of his
An Old Hand
Vishinsky has carried the ball for
the U.S.S.R. in Russia's war of
words with the east in the U. N.
Those who attached some signif
icance to the Molotov dismissal and
the north Atlantic pact pointed out
that only today Norway politely but
firmly told Russia thafy despite
pressure, she would not sign a non
aggression treaty with the Soviets.
A big question was what will hap
pen to Molotov now. No one knew,
from the terse Moscow radio an
nouncement, whether he had been
given Molotov’s second post, that
of deputy prime minister—a step
down the scale from Stalin.
A Promotion for Molotov
There even was speculation that
the sudden transfer of command
might, in fact, mean a promotion
Some quarters recalled the recent
frequent reports of Stalin’s impend
ing old age and ill health. They con- !
sidered it not beyond comprehen
sion that relieving Molotov from
his post as foreign minister might
possibly mean that Stalin himself
was preparing the ground for his
“We are taking advantage of the
good weather to get the concrete
poured,” states Ralph J. Gibbs, stu
dent union superintendent. On Mon
day, workmen will start to raise
the structural steel which will form
the basis for the remainder of the
concrete. One big job in connection
with structural steel will be to hoist
a 10-ton steel beam up about 35 feet
to its position above the indoor en
trance to the third-floor ballroom.
Brick for section B is expected to
arrive by the middle of March, and
it is hoped that placing will be start
ed by April 1. Three carloads of
stone which will be set along with
the brick have come in already.
The weather has held up work on
only one portion of the basement in
section A. It is hoped that this will
not delay the date of completion if
the rest of the building is kept on.
Union difficulties have not yet
been responsible for any delay, and
it is expected that they will not be,
since enough workmen have decided
to go back to a retro-active basis
until some agreement may be
